So She Married an Axe Murderer

Jason and Grant are called in to investigate a haunt hidden in their own neighborhood, the Slater Mill. In its early years, almost all of the employees at the mill were children, and the workers were often pushed to their limits. Working conditions were difficult and unhealthy, respiratory ailments and diseases were rife, and the mill was home to many grisly accidents.

Now, TAPS sets out to debunk the long list of paranormal claims by employees and visitors alike.

Then, TAPS goes to Connecticut to unravel the mysteries at the historic Pettibone Tavern. Built in 1780, the tavern originally served as a carriage stop between Albany and Boston during the late 18th century. During this time, it was also supposedly the site of a brutal axe murder, and through the years, employees have consistently reported activity that they cannot explain.

Opening managers have come in the morning to find furniture stacked or rearranged. A closing manager reported turning off a row of electric candles, one by one, and when he got to his car, he was shocked to find them all switched back on.

The victim of a recent fire, the restaurant is renovated and preparing for a reopening with new owners and a new name but before it does, TAPS gets a crack at this local legend.
