The story about this villa is a rather sad story. The villa belonged to a very religious and catholic family. But something went very wrong when the young widow that was living in Sint Marie started a secret relation with the local pastor. The woman got pregnant and the unwanted child was thrown in the cesspool. The woman was arrested on grounds of capital murder and thrown in jail in 1960.
