After the previous owner, 51-year-old Greg Gamble, ran into some legal trouble, a haunted house in Scottsboro is set to receive renovations under new ownership.
Court documents show that Gamble was arrested in June and charged with forcible sodomy and three counts of second-degree sexual abuse.
The new owners Corey Hale, Jeremy Rowell, and Blaine Bradley were all aware of Gamble’s allegations before purchasing the attraction. The attraction under their ownership will now be called Bedlem, which means chaos and confusion.
Hale, Rowell, and Bradley want to change how the community sees the attraction. To give back to the community, they will donate a portion of their proceeds to CASA of North Sand Mountain.
Rowell, when talking about CASA, said, “They are just wonderful. I mean, they help so many families and so many children in bad spots and stuff.”
The new ownership says they are optimistic that Bedlem will be open to the public by Halloween.
“We’re definitely excited to do this and be able to take advantage and help other folks too and help the kids as well,” said Rowell.
