Ask yourself. Do some souls cross over, while others remain trapped in the veil? If one remains, what is the reason? Are they condemned to spend eternity roaming in the shadows? Those entering Brushy will come away with an experience like no other.

Evil men who did evil things were imprisoned here. Many locked away for the rest of their lives. A few died of natural causes. Others met their end with the blade of a meat cleaver or a shiv. The final blow delivered by the violent hands of another prisoner.

These are the souls that haunt this stone-cold fortress, whose spirits refuse to cross over. Who remain here because they have unfinished business. Visitors have been touched, scratched, shoved and growled at. Nevertheless, they have a cautious fascination with this unexplained world of the undead.
