Lima - Casa Matusita - There are countless stories behind this supossed haunting. This is what I have been told by my parents. The Casa Matusita, named for the electronics/house wares store located on the first floor (now closed) is a windowless dwelling that takes over the entire second floor of a building sitting right on a street corner and is located diagonally across from the Sheraton Hotel and Towers in Lima. It has been said that a man of Chinese descent lived in that apartment with his wife and kids. A heavy gambler and alcoholic, one day he gambled away all his money and went mad killing his entire family and himself. The timeframe of these occurrences is sketchy. Some people state that this happened during the 40s while other people state that this happened at the turn of last century. The most popular story related to the legend at Matusita is that sometime around the 1960s a TV show host wanted to prove that there was no such thing as a haunting in that place and to do so he decided to spend the night there. He was found the morning after, lying outside the building on the street corner. Reports say that he was never the same after spending the night at Casa Matusita, was actually committed to a mental institution and has refused to ever talk about his experience that night.

Lima - Cementerio el Angel - There has been many taxi drivers that have been stopped by either a man or a woman that wants to go to an address near a cemetery when the driver asks the men or the women if they are getting closer to his/her house, he turns around to find no one on the back of their car.
