Chattanooga Times Free Press - ChattanoogaNow - - OUT & ABOUT - STAFF RE­PORT

Dal­ton Ghost Tours will host au­thors who have i nves­ti­gated and writ­ten about the mur­ders at Corpse­wood Manor for a special theme night on Satur­day, Sept. 8, at 7 p. m.

Two men were brutally mur­dered on Dec. 12, 1982, in Corpse­wood Manor, known as “the cas­tle in the woods” in the re­mote moun­tains of North­west Ge­or­gia. One of the vic­tims, an ac­com­plished sci­en­tist and univer­sity pro­fes­sor, was be­lieved to ex­per­i­ment with the oc­cult.

The mur­ders of Dr. Charles Scud­der and Joey Odom at Corpse­wood Manor set the stage for a sen­sa­tion­al­ized trial. The case be­came a me­dia sen­sa­tion with al­le­ga­tions of sa­tanic cults, su­per­nat­u­ral curses and mind- con­trol ex­per­i­ments.

Connie Hall- Scott , owner of Dal­ton Ghost Tours, will host three guests on Satur­day night who will dis­cuss their re­search into Corpse­wood Manor. Af­ter­ward, Hal­lS­cott will lead guests on a walk­ing tour of Dal­ton’s re­port­edly haunted lo­ca­tions.

The t hree f ea­tured speak­ers will be:

Daniel El­lis: Au­thor of “Corpse­wood: A True Crime Like No Other.”

Amy Pe­tulla: Au­thor of “The Corpse­wood Manor Mur­ders in North Ge­or­gia.”

Me­lanie Mumea: Host of the Face­book page “Corpse­wood Manor -A Cas­tle in the Woods,” which she started as a me­mo­rial to Scud­der and Odom. She will bring rare pho­tos to share.

Dal­ton Ghost Tours meets at the wooden deck across West Craw­ford Street from the his­toric Wink The­ater in down­town Dal­ton.

Tick­ets are $10-$15 and can be pur­chased on-site.
