I think the area was one of those off limits to the local native Americans and houses should have never been built there. There's a dark malevolence to the area, prior to the current occupants, the people living there had a dog on a chain, the next door neighbor came over with a shot gun and blew it's head off.
I had a dream of it while staying there before hearing about it. I woke up to the sound of a gun and screams and cries.
There was constant turmoil, I hope everyone gets out of there alive.
