Just then, the large beast started beating eveyone with it's huge, thick tail, including it's mother.  A large scream or whinning noise is heard and then the beast is gone into the night.  The legend goes that the Jersey Devil still roams the forest area in New Jersey attacking anything from crops, live animals and many say it has been spotted at the New Jersey shore. 

Located in Essex County is one of the more infamous mental institutions to ever be built in all Newark, New Jersey.  The Essex County Hospital, which was originally named Overbrook Mental Institution began construction in the late 1800's.  Over the next several years there will be massive violence, unexplained death which will eventually lead to the closing of the scariest house for the mentally and criminally insane forever. 

In 1917 there was a problem in the broiler room and what follwed was horrific tragedy.  Over the next 20 days, there were 24 reported deaths from freezing to death and 32 more reports of patients having frost.  During the Great Depression while so many people going financial and rough times, this led to the overcrowding of the Essex County.  As time went on the care just became worse.  Eventually in the year 2007 the Essex County Hospital was closed for good.  After a century of despicible care and horrible values there were a reported 10,000 human deaths.
