Tombstone is a historic city in the Cochise County of the Arizona state in the U.S. Known for its Wild West history, Tombstone was once the last wide-open frontier town in the American west. Tombstone is also known as the creepiest ghost town of the west. Though Arizona may be small, it has a lot of real life creepy places to mention and talk about. When you look back at the history of Tombstone, it revolves around cowboy shootout, seedy brothels, and shady poker with quiet blood spillage. There is no shock that a few ghosts may be still roaming in the Wild West. Tombstone is an ideal place to step down and enjoy the o0ld west atmosphere of the “Town too tough to die”.
Tombstone also boasts of being witness to the most famous gunfight in America’s Wild West history, O. K. Corral, which was one of the most gruesome fights among outlaws and lawmen. The most gruesome murders took place here, and the creepiest ghost stories still exist. Resident ghosts are still believed to haunt the bird cage theatre. One of the creepiest places to visit is the boot hills, where outlaws were buried alive and the state cemetery. Today, the main source of income for the residents is from the sales of souvenirs and the daily enactment of the 1881 gunfight of O. K. Corral.
Arizona authorities say that a saloon shooting in the old west town of tombstone pit one man in hospital with a leg injury and another man in jail. The mishap happened at the home of Doc Holliday, who plays the role of a dentist in the O. K. Corral re-enactments. The struggle began following a verbal alliteration that involved a third man and a woman. The struggle at Doc Holliday’s Saloon was followed by shooting, says the Cochise County Sheriff. James Edward Roberson remains jailed on account of heightened assaults and other crimes. Spokeswoman Capas says Roberson and his female companion surrendered their guns to the bartender as soon as they arrived on Friday evening. The struggle and shooting began after the couple retrieved their guns in the early hours of Saturday morning. Whether Roberson has an attorney to comment on his behalf is still unknown.
