Three Mile Island

That's a lot of money spent to build that small prison not that many years ago, and to unexpectedly let it fall into disarray and deteriorate so quickly.

The one thing that stuck in my mind was the statement that it was built to fool people into thinking they were in a larger state prison facility. I wonder if it was a one way trip for any unfortunate souls that entered it.

Good point. Maybe it was built by kidnappers, that wanted their victims to believe they were in a real prison?

If a real state prison, maybe it was built to house people the government wanted to keep away from both other prisoners and ordinary prison guards? But it seems unlikely to spend that much money unless the prisoners were really valuable alive.

I wonder what's in the flooded basement...

Three Mile Island

I can't see how any of this would have been built, to deceive the occupants that it was a "real" State facility, unless it was by some criminal element. The articles mention some type of furnace, as if it might have been used as a crematorium to dispose of the bodies since it was just the right size for that.

If it had been a real facility, we would not be talking about it. It would have been maintained and not allowed to fall into disrepair so quickly after being built just a decade ago. The article went into all the various owners including a former criminal and it appears due to the convoluted change of hands, this may have been the end result of it's demise.

As to the flooded basement...pump it out. Let's see what's more there is.
