Most haunted place in the world can now be yours

  • Independent called the island of Poveglia "the most haunted place on Earth," which can now belong to you. Reports suggest that the Italian government is auctioning off the island close to Venice where, people say a doctor carried out brutal Iobotomies on people. 

    Mental Floss notes that the soil in the region is mostly comprised of human ash since a lot of plague victims' bodies were burned there. Government put restrictions on access to the land for years but a few ghost hunters did visit. 

    Officials are now looking to auction the 17-acre island in order to reduce its debt.
