The People Who Bought the Morgue Refrigerator on eBay
In case you missed my story on the eBay Examiner last week - the latest weird sale on eBay was for a morgue refrigerator. New York State Office of Mental Health Manhattan Psychiatric Center auctioned off a real morgue refrigerator on eBay. (See the listing here.) The item sold for $3,049. After I wrote the article for The Examiner, I received this email from the buyer:
"I was just scrolling through News360 when I came across an article about the Morgue Fridge being sold in NY. I was actually the lucky buyer. I went to disassemble it from the old morgue at The Manhattan Psychiatric Hospital yesterday, which was interesting to say the least. I know you're probably wondering why I bought it, well my company does Haunted Houses in NJ so I'm planning on using it as a prop for this October. So I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that yes, it was definitely a real item and taking it apart was creepy. The whole fridge has a musty smell about it and the metal slabs were sticky!"
The attraction is called BANE Haunted House and this year they are located at The Rockaway Mall in NJ.
