Landlord sues over haunting claims


UPI News Service, 04/27/2012 

A New Jersey landlord is suing former tenants who fled the home in the middle of the night after only one week, claiming the residence is haunted.

Richard Lopez, an orthodontist and landlord, filed a state Superior Court lawsuit against Josue Chinchilla and Michele Callan, who left the Toms River home March 10 after living there a week with Callan's teenage daughter and 6-year-old son, the Asbury Park (N.J.) Press reported Friday.

Lopez's lawsuit alleges the couple diminished his ability to rent or sell the house when they told the Asbury Park Press about their experiences in the home. The couple said doors would creak and slam in unoccupied parts of the house and clothing and other items would be found in places other than where they were left.

They said they finally fled the home after Chinchilla felt an invisible hand on his arm and Callan saw a dark apparition in their bedroom.

Lopez is seeking $15,000 in damages.

Chinchilla and Callan previously filed a lawsuit against Lopez, alleging the landlord initially agreed to return their $2,250 security deposit and let them out of their one-year lease before changing his mind.
