SPF: No trespassers

24 Sascha Darlington February 18th 2018© Sascha Darlington

It was the talk of the town.

Overnight, a gate had appeared that blocked access to the end of the road. We all know that that house finally got sold, but there was nothing unusual about the building sitting there. Why did the new owners feel the need to build a gate on that street and add a sign saying no trespassing? Were they even allowed to do that? Undoubtedly the road was public property and not part of any personal boundaries?

Not that it mattered as it was the end of a cul-de-sac, but it just seemed a lot of trouble for anybody.

Everybody was waiting to see these new owners, but we never saw anybody coming in or out of that gate. There did not seem to be any security cameras or guards wandering around the place so, naturally, curiosity got the better of us. There had to be some reason it denied anybody access; something those people wanted to hide.

So, dressed in black a couple of us scaled the fence to investigate everything for ourselves. What we found just beyond left us scratching our heads even more.

The house was gone; demolished. What was going on?
