Here is the full story behind the Hallett/Hallet house "murders". It appears to simply be an urban legend,or made up story . There are all these different people on the forum about hauntings claiming to know or be related to someone in the family,worked for them,went to school with them,etc.,yet no-one can provide any other information? I have lived in the area all my life (am a senior citizen)and do not recall a news story about any family murder.When did this all happen,I must have missed it? It seems like that would be a prominent news story-would have made the national news ,too! So sorry ghost hunters,but this seems to be the creation of vivid imaginations and not a real story.

I remember that happening and I think it was a daughter that murdered the family.

It is true that people were murdered at this place. For my entire life, I've lived 'next door' down from the house where this happened. My family has lived next door to it as well, for much longer than I've been alive.

Now, as for hauntings I can't comment. Never been in the house itself and my attitude is "I'll believe it when I see it". I didn't even know that 'ghost hunters' were interested in the place, though I guess that might explain a few cases of the trespassing we've had in the past as well as the random cars of college students and such that have stopped outside the front of that house a few times while it was vacant. There were a couple cases during that time where I almost went to investigate because some outdoor lights kicked on up there at night for no real reason. The house has relatively new owners now and interactions with them have been uneventful; they seem to be alright people.

One of the previous owners went apeshit crazy, screaming and burning furniture on his lawn to 'get the devil out', and chasing my father with a shovel/damaging our back stoop with a truck when my father questioned them. The area where that house is built all used to be our property, many years ago. That guy was probably just insane though, not driven mad by some kind of ghost. Who knows.

i know susan hallett she now is a very nice person, but i guess 25 yrs in prison will turn anyone around when she was realesed there was a big todo about it and they would not let her come back to jamestown. yes her boyfriend and his friend did it but she wouldnt testify against anyone(out of love) so she was the only one who got 25 yrs and she didnt even pull the trigger! loves is a bitch huh? to me there aint that much love in the world.

the family didn't like the daughter's black boyfriend, while the daughter and her boyfriend killed the whole family one night. i believe mom, dad, and some siblings.

My step-father was a state trooper back then. He said that the mom, dad, and youngest daughter were in the basement tied up. The oldest daughter came in with her boyfriend and two of his friends from Detroit. They shot all three of her family members. The boyfriend and friends wanted money. All four of them took off in the family vehicle were it was found later in Detroit. The daughter did just get released from prison within the past five years or so. Crazy how the first person on here says that they lived here forever and never heard of this? Urban Legend? No. It's real.

I remember the murders well and most here have it right.
I worked with Bob Hallet's brother so I got the straight skinny on it when it happened.

The daughter Susan came back with 2 street punks from DEE-troit and wanted money. When they didn't get what they wanted, Susan (who "now is a very nice person"..mmmmmkayy) instructed the 2 animals she was training to shoot every one of her family in the BACK with Bob's big game rifle.*Including* her kid sister.

They were forced to lay down on the floor and then cletus blew their brains out in cold blood while his handler (who now is a very nice person of course) looked on and smiled.

It was a GOTdamn shame that they didn't electocute all THREE of those filthy savages.

It was about 1972 or 73 . Susan had told those guys her dad had money . She was I beleve a Nurse in Detroit . they came looking for money when he wouldn't give them any they took them to the basement and shot them the one guy turned states evidence against the other two and got off with very light sentence . At the time of her release she was the longest serving female inmate in NY .
Archie was like a son to Bob . When he bought the house ,he would put ,I want to say skittles , in the basement ,in any event, Bobs favorite candy . He loved Bob like a father so had no fear of his ghost . The other murder .about the same time was the Ebersol boy tied to a tree and left to die

it seems i messed up i blamed mr oboyle for the urban ledgends statement well sorry about that but oboyal upset me some when he made the crude statement concerning the clients at the resource center and i resented that i work with these wonderful people every day and only idiot would insult their intregrity regardless of how the pun is intended this is a serious profession and we deserve more than 8.00 per hour for our work and if we love our job why should we go to a factory and punch buttons after all when i get my food stamps i can thank oboyle for his wonderful contribution towards them in the form of property taxes disbursment well the resource center uses the state disbursments to fatten up their private foundation bank accounts.

I remember the night of the hallett murders, my younger sister was "best friends" with susans little sister. my sister was supposed to spend the night, but as i recall, she got the flu or something and couldn't go. I remember my father on the phone with Bob, its a damn shame,....I also know someone who lived in the house, I won't go into detail, but...you won't ever catch me in there
