      Zion, IL BACK STORY
      There have been seven violent deaths associated with the grounds around the Dungeon of Doom area in Zion, IL. This historic location was once the home of the mysterious "Lakeside Candy Company”, which was closed in the 1960’s. There have been seven deaths there since, causing the area to be a highly probable site for paranormal activity.

      Built in 1916, the candy factory at 29th Street and Ebenezer Avenue faces the Dungeon of Doom's Warwick Building and shares the parking lot. The site, near Lake Michigan, was once at the center of Zion Industries and the economic engine of the religious community founded by John Alexander Dowie a century ago. Due to the series of bizarre events, the seventh as recent as a hanging in 2003, the city finally demolished the building in 2004. The unusual occurrences are said to have increased at this time in the Warwick building, which houses the Dungeon of Doom Haunted House.

      It has been suggested that the main disturbance could possibly be caused by the misplaced spirit of Scott Bielech roaming the area. His friend, Geoffrey Leon murdered Bielech in September 1998 and for unexplained reasons, he brought the body to the Zion location and burned it along with himself. Now, EXACTLY 13 YEARS LATER, Ed Shanahan will reach out and try to try to contact the spirit who was once the victim of this bizarre murder suicide.

      Hopefully this evening will put to rest the negative energy surrounding the warehouse grounds and answer the main question for many; “Why does this warehouse area attract this type of dark event?” And coincidentally without them realizing it, draw the proprietors of the Dungeon of Doom to create their award winning haunted warehouse attraction facing the property?

      Shanahan is a columnist for, Chicago Paranormal and Spiritual, and Chicago Now, a Chicago Internet Information site. He is also the voice behind Haunted American Tours, a GPS iPhone App in which Ed narrates a tour of the haunted down town Chicagoland area. Ed has been featured in four books, with two published in 2009. He has also been in many newspapers, and a guest on radion and TV siws.
