This is a fact! It happened on Feb. 10 1973 on south main st. in Jamestown. Robert, Grace, and 8 yr old Ann Marie Hallett were murdered by Susan Hallett her boyfriend Richard Parish and Aaron Hale. Susan was Roberts daughter form a previous marrage. They came all the way here from Detroit to get money and it ended in their execution in the basement. They stupidly stole her dads car to go home and that is how they got caught. As for "haunted" I don't beleive that.

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 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 i
n the world.

julie.. r u for real??? everyone says they r innocent but let me just remind everyone how many unsolved murders have happened in jamestown with no arrests. if he was arrested they must have had some damning evidence or he confessed because like i said "unsolved murders" in this small town. come on. if u can committ such a terrible crime to ur own family you should be shot! these events took place cause she and her boyfriend were on drugs and wanted money and the family refused! trash is what they all are and all deserve the death penalty

I have heard of the Hallett murders from my fiance Tom Hallett II. His uncle was the one murdered in that house along with the family. So all of you who don't believe it, its true.

Just to set the record straight, Bob Hallett is my relative, I am his nephew. I grew up in his charge, spent a lot of time with him as if I were his only son. He meant the world to me, and yes in fact they were murdered in their home and for the most part, the reports I have read are accurate. I can't imagine anyone living in the area and missing that event. The house isn't haunted, just feels that way. I revisited the house a few years ago and walked the empty halls and rooms including the basement and area where they were executed, and it did make me feel rather uneasy. The house was unoccupied and between owners. So for the record, go to the cemetary and visit the tripple grave for yourself if you don't believe it. I have, and I still haven't completely gotten over the loss. He was like my dad, Grace treated me as her own and Annie was like a sister to me. As for Sue, God have mercy on her, and as many times as I would have liked to avenge her terrible deeds, that is God's business. I forgive her. I still don't like her as a person.

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

I remember this tragedy quite well, it scared the crap out of me when it happened,I didn't sleep well for weeks,as for SUSAN, who cares about her anyway,she was probley behind the whole thing.She should have gotten life and should have never been released from prison but THE USA is the only country who PROTECTS murderers, so she can live out her life. I hope she got nothing from the estate and is destitute.

Do you know Tammy/Tracie Hallet? I went to school with her. Was this her family? If so, I can't even imagine how it must have been for her, and the rest of the family.

I remember it well. I was a junior in high school. Something I won't ever forget. And it happened just like Phester said. Straight and to the point of it!

I met Susan when I was about 19 in Bedford Hills she took me under her wing i was doing 25 years to life. Susan was like a mother/sister to me.

I'm now 43 years old and I just spoke with her yesterday and she still is a wonderful friend.

Susan is not a monster.
