But all this success came at a price, the stress of the wars and production took a toll on the workers, early on a summers morning one employee was found dead hanging from a pair of boot straps, apparently from suicide. A few years later part of the tannery burnt down killing several workers. Shortly, after the war, the shoe factory was closed for good. Oddly, there is a tomb stone located under the stairs on the outside of the building, Who does this strange grave belong to? Do the workers who perished still think they work at the tannery, working late into the night? Watch Episode 2 as Bad Max and Vexie blaze into the tannery to tackle this ghostly haunt!
