well he died in 2002 when i was 13. he was an alcoholic. he died because he wanted too. he was very sick, and he drank alot of vodka, and it killed him. he was found dead in his apt 2 days later in florida. the police found his body, and empty vodka bottles all around :tears:

oh well, the city of virginia beach where i live has plans for it. they are NOT gonna tear it down, cause it's a historical landmark to the area. the are gonna turn the building into a apt, for disabled senior citizens.

yep. my late dad went there when he was little. he had a crush on several girls that attended that school.
if he was alive today, he would have been able to tell me stories of that old school.

the old closed down kemps landing school is dark, and creepy at night. i broke into it once at 2:00 in the morning and explored the inside with a small led flashlight. ^^;

Wow, I'm a total wussy, so I definately wouldnt be going into dark scary places even if I was paid to XD
So what did you see there at night? Nothin but bugs and cobwebs, I'm guessing?

no not cobwebs.
bugs yes, oh and mold, mildew, giant sheets of peeling paint hanging from ceiling,

broken wires also hanging from ceiling, all the toilets and sinks had been removed from every bathroom in the school.
the cafeteria still had all the metal serving counters there. the lockers were still there, but they were empty.
the library was sstill there too. but all i saw was empty shelves. no books. the boiler room had been flooded with 5 feet of water.

the whole place reeked of mold, and turpentine.
