A New Jersey landlord has filed a lawsuit against a couple who claim their rented house was haunted.
Landlord Richard Lopez is seeking damages in state court from Michelle Callan and her fiance. Lopez says their claim will scare away potential new tenants or buyers of the house in Toms River.
The Asbury Park Press reports the couple fled the house in March. The couple says they found clothes mysteriously ejected from closets and heard all kinds of strange noises, including the sound of something being dragged through the basement.
The couple and the landlord also are in litigation over the security deposit.
Lopez has said the couple bolted because they apparently couldn’t afford the rent. The couple denies that.
