After Ed and Lorraine passed away, the museum was shut down in 2018. Tony Spera, who is Warren’s son-in-law has been looking for a new place to ship the items in the museum. The rumor is said to have originated because of a mistranslation. There is no fault of police reports, haunted videos, or frantic calls.
