A year has past since the fateful day of the circus train crash that took so many lives.  Time, it seems, has given rise to more questions than answers regarding the true nature of this horrific collision.  Initial reports led us to believe that a toxic waste truck, which caused the train to derail, simply veered off the road due to negligence.  New developments in the case paint a much more sinister picture.

A warrant for the arrest of Jack Slaughter (the surviving owner of the Slaughter Brothers Circus) has been issues by authorities, but the details have been suppressed.  Could he have masterminded the catastrophe for his own sadistic gains?  Speculation aside, he was last seen evading capture with his band of murderous clowns by fleeing into the festering sewers and torturous catacombs beneath the now infamous Von Helton Manor.  More sensational than Jacks story, however, is Dr. Von Helton himself.  Presumed dead due to a corpse found in the crash wreckage, the doctor miraculously survived!  As a person of interest he has been placed on house arrest; legally unable to leave the property of his home and site of the accident.  He has been living outside the manor for the last year and refuses to enter, by his own words, until my manor is restored to its former glory.  Indeed Von Helton Manor has seen many changes.  Those brave enough to enter (and lucky enough to escape) have claimed that the spirits of those who perished in the train crash have found a new home by possessing and haunting the main guest level.  Regardless of these allegations, the top floor of the manor has been allocated to decontamination and research by the CDC (Center for Disease Control) and various officials.  Survivors exposed to the toxic waste, human and animal alike, have been moved to this floor rather than off site for examination as attempts to remove them from the building have been met with violence and death.  With all of this happening in his home, the not-so-good doctor waits patiently outside with a mysterious group of red-cloaked individuals he simply refers to as friends.  This year he is opening his doors to adventure and thrill seekers in an effort to raise funds to repair his family home and evict its current tenants.
