In 1889, a man simple of mind and strong of body was accused of a horrific murder. As the executioner, Jeramiah Ratsenburg reached up and put a noose around his neck. The accused used his last words on the gallows to protest his innocence and curse the hangman. When the prison and gallows were torn down to make room for a housing development, Jeramiah Ratsenburg, a strange little man, used the wood of the gallows as part of the construction of his new home. Because the gallows and its curse were now part of his house, he unintentionally caused future innocent members of the Ratsenburg family to suffer the pain of the noose. Murder, claims of innocence, a haunted house with dolls running wildly through the Ratsenburg house and playing with young Izabella finally came to an end when a detective unravelled the clues why the ghost of a little girl was pointing to a red door.
