The Kill Room

  • July 6, 2013

This picture was again taken in Gary, IN at the old Methodist Church. We where in the basement and one of goal was to get to the "Kill Room". It was a long DARK room except this one location of the room where a hole from the outside coming in. It was a very dusty area and with the dust and the light was making a spooky look to that room.
