What's the status of this place?
Also what's on the inside now? Looks like windows stay open. Can't imagine the vermin and animals getting in.
Has anyone been in it recently?

when the city and county officials went in a year or so ago, they wore haz-mat suits. It got to be toxic in there by now.

Why not clean it? Is there something wrong with it other than all the years of grime and mildew?

Industrial cleaning. And it is in a total state of disrepair. Would have to be completely modernized to even be declared safe for people to be in.

A young boy was killed there in the late 90s. His last name was Hakola or something close to it. The man who killed him was named Barry Havener. He killed the boy with a toilet tank lid!

I'm 23 and I remember when this place was open...I don't think it was really that great it's in a cruddy area too. (not hating). It was a big deal wayyyyy back in the day but those days are long gone I don't think it could ever be what it once was.
