Episode(s) 3.13 Ghostfacers


Freeman Daggett was a janitor at a hospital. Lonely and paranoid, he brought home corpses from the hospital and set them up in a macabre birthday celebration in his bomb shelter. At midnight on his birthday, Daggett committed suicide by overdosing on horse tranquilizers. Each year following his death, on February 29th, he would capture and kill anyone he found in the house to continue his "celebration," giving him the nickname the "Leap Year Ghost." This, combined with the spirits of the corpses he stole from the hospital who remain in the house as death echoes, gives the Morton House its reputation as the most haunted house in America.


3.13 Ghostfacers

When the Winchesters and Ghostfacers come to investigate the house on February 29th, Daggett captures Corbett and then Sam. He takes them to his bomb shelter and restrains Corbett and Sam. He assures Corbett that it "stops hurting" before stabbing him through the neck with a knife. Daggett then turns his attention to Sam, but before he can kill Sam, Dean breaks through the bomb shelter door and shoots Daggett with rock salt, allowing him to untie his brother.

As Sam, Dean, and Spruce attempt to escape the basement, Daggett finds them and knocks Spruce down, but before he can attack him, he is shot by Sam, causing him to dissipate once more. When he returns, he knocks Sam and Dean into the wall before turning his attention once more to Spruce. Corbett, who had become a death echo, is freed from his loop by Ed Zeddmore and is able to vanquish Freeman Daggett by neutralizing their spectral energies, causing both to disappear in a blinding flash of light.
