If you're thinking about taking a trip to personally check on Barb after what's happened, then don't. She has been through enough in the past few years as it is, and she is probably better off being left alone.

In recent years, Chris and/or Barb have occasionally been visited by fans at their house.

Joey Vance

Chris with Joey (far left) and his brother.

On 18 October 2019, Joey Vance and his older brother visited Sonichu Headquarters to meet Chris. Their accounts were posted on Reddit in r/ChrisChanSonichu the next day.[1]

The two brothers were initially visiting Charlottesville and since Ruckersville just happens to be in their way, Joey decided to make the most of their time together to personally visit Chris. The overall visit was described as a calm experience between the two parties, with the older brother (known by his Reddit handle xv5qx) even giving a Sonic toy as a "peace offering". One interesting note Joey mentioned is the fact that Chris smells of weed. Whether the musk is the result of his usual poor hygiene or his new drug habit is still up for debate.


Joey also recorded conversations regarding Jacob Sockness.

On 20 February 2021, a Ruckersville local by the handle of Aggravating_Art_2982, along with his older brother and his brother's girlfriend visited Chris and documented his (now deleted) experience on Reddit's r/ChrisChanSonichu subreddit.[2]


Aggravating Art also recorded a short video featuring Chris's wardrobe.

Anon on /pol/

On 28 June 2021, an anonymous user on 4chan's /pol/ board visited 14 Branchlord Court to take pictures of the house and the Dodge Caravan. The user played the flute near Patti's old doghouse and apparently saw Chris peeking through a window in the house.


On 27 July 2021, Reddit user hoov2002 visited Chris at 14 Branchland Court, and took two photos with him. Of note is how both of these images feature Chris wearing negligee, which he claimed he had been wearing during some instances of his affair with his mother.[3] This visit was not publicly posted about until March 2022, likely due to the fact that Chris' incest came to light just a day later.

Phillip Jeffries

On 29 August 2021, during the fallout of the incest incident and the August 2021 arrest, a Kiwi Farms user called Phillip_Jeffries visited 14 Branchlord Court with a friend in order to see the condition of the aforementioned Dodge Caravan and the cats. Phillip was able to confirm that the vehicle was back at the house, and that at least two cats, Baby and Sylvia, were still living at the residence. Most notably, it was also confirmed that Barbara had returned to the house and that the Caravan had been registered with replacement license plates.<[4]

Winfield Winfield

Cro-magnon looking ween.png

Dylan Winfield, also known as Winfield Winfield is the self-published author of the first book in a planned horror novel series. Dylan seems to have found promoting his book by spamming Reddit and Twitter ineffective, so in June 2021 he hit upon the idea of sending a copy each to Chris and Barbara and asking for their reviews. Needless to say, the events of late July and early August would make that difficult, but Dylan continued to promote the idea of reaching out to Chris.

On 6 September 2021, Dylan traveled to Ruckersville, where he took a video at 14 Branchland Court as well as numerous still images [5] in an attempt to promote his book series by piggybacking off Chris's Internet infamy. In addition to committing the crime of trespassing, he can be heard making his agonizingly cringey commentary about the house and its surroundings throughout the video as well as mentioning his book, revealing his true purpose in making the trek to 14BC in the first place. The following day, he uploaded the video and messaged GiBi on twitter. This resulted in his exposure on the Kiwi Farms, and several people calling him out on his clout-chasing attempts, after which he deleted his video within an hour, suggesting he was following the thread. Why, then, he didn't know better is a mystery.

Stardate 7 September 2021



[Video begins with a shot of Dylon's face.]

Dylon: Hi, everybody. Uh, my name is Winfield Winfield, I am the author of a horror novel, the start of a series, it's called "Cult of the Eclipse", so be sure to look for that online if you like Silent Hill kind of stuff, and you guys are not going to believe where I am. I am at...

[Camera pans to show Son-Chu and the front of 14 Branchland Court.]

Dylon: ...Sonichu Headquarters! (chuckles) Oh man, I wanted to go ahead and see like what the house looked like, it was just a little road trip that I'm on.

[Camera zooms in on Son-Chu.]

Dylon: I'm guessing that might be Barb's car here, uh, I wonder if those marks are from, uh, maybe hitting Michael Snyder, like who knows man. Okay...

[Dylon walks to the side of the van, then looks inside the passenger-side window.]

Dylon: If, uh, you look really closely here...

[Camera shifts to Dylon's face, then back.]

Dylon: can a bucket full of garbage, that's not shocking here...

[He looks in the back of the van.]

Dylon: got that going on in the back and whatever else. This unfortunately is not the Sonichu Car, I think everybody knows that it's stuck at that motel where Chris got arrested at, and the license plate's been stolen.

[Camera zooms in on a "rejection" sticker from Virginia State Inspection on the front windshield.]

Dylon: Rejection...ooh, that doesn't look good. Okay...

[Camera pans over the front of 14 BLC again.]

Dylon: Clearly nobody is here, so let's, uh, take a gander around here. Obviously, I can't go inside, but let's check out how it looks on the outside...we got a whole bunch of tall vegetation so far...

[Camera looks at a tree in the front yard.]

Dylon: ...clearly hasn't cut the grass in a long time.

[Camera pans to the road in front of the house.]

Dylon: Uh, trash cans are pretty empty, uh, I guess that means all the garbage is probably inside the house somewhere, but, uh, let's keep going. Go on a little outside tour...

[Dylon starts walking around the house's right side.]

Dylon: You know, around the back is actually interesting, and I'll show you guys why in a minute.

[Dylon enters the backyard, passing the bench and the house's back door.]

Dylon: Okay, got the bench, got a little trail leading to the back. Oh Jesus Christ, yeah, like right here, literally right here, you can actually like smell the fucking BO, like it, like right here, it smells like somebody hasn't showered in like three weeks, uh, I'm gonna put my short over my nose here.

[Dylon looks up the stairs at the back walkway. A cat is sitting there.]

Dylon: There's a little kitty up there, I don't know which cat that is or that's even the Chandler's cat for that matter.

[Camera zooms in on the walkway.]

Dylon: Oh there's two cats! Poor babies, having to live with this family. (shifts camera to the vines growing on the side) Oh god, look at like the vegetation growing on the side right there, like that might be digging into the foundation. Man, I wonder how bad that is.

[Dylon walks across the back yard.]

Dylon: Okay, uh......

[Camera shifts to the shed) there's the shed]

Dylon: There's the shed, some cats ran off in there, probably scared it's one of the Chandlers, knowing this place.

[Camera turns back to the house)]

Dylon: Yeah, more uh, tall vegetation on this side, probably eating away at the place, and if Chris-Chan gets sentenced, I mean, shit, it might get worse over the next 10 years, like who knows.

[Camera turns to the gazebo]

Dylon: And over here, we got the little gazebo, Bob's little gazebo here.

[Dylan approaches the gazebo]

Dylon: There's a little dog house here, probably where Patti is, poor girl. God, could you, could you imagine how nice of a place this could have been if the Chandlers just took care of it?

[Camera turns back toward shed]

Dylon: Man, but then again, Chris Chan wouldn't be so famous now, would he? Okay, um...I'm gonna see if I can go around to the other side here and take a look...

[Camera goes around the outside of the house again]

Dylon: Okay...and over here we got this little pathway here, it's all broken up as you can see. Okay...

[Dylon finds Bob's old greenhouse.]

Dylon: That's...oh my god! What is that, is that supposed to be like the, the dream factory? Let me take a look...there are little steps here, gotta be careful.

[Camera moves past a side entrance, looking inside.]

Dylon: Holy shit, the light's still on. Ugh, I do not want to see that electric bill.

[Camera looks inside the greenhouse.]

Dylon: Thinking outside, what the f-, what...okay, uh, a ton of junk in here. It's probably more Chris Chan shit, I don't know if, um, you can get a decent view in here. Unfortunately, it's locked, we can't really get a better look, but hopefully, hopefully you guys can see okay. All righty...

[Dylon walks around the greenhouse, showing the junk crammed in the windows.]

Dylon: Uh, let's see if there's anything else to look at here.

[Dylon heads around the back of the greenhouse and finds what appears to be a jungle gym.]

Dylon: Whatever that's supposed to be, I don't know, man. Is that supposed to be like the dream factory, or is it, it's just a regular tree house or a regular little kid's club house or something. I don't know. Oh holy fuck, look at this. Look at this.

[Camera pans over the extremely overgrown yard.]

Dylon: Jesus tap-dancing Christ, god look at the state of the yard, holy fucking dog shit, man. Man that is just wild. God, holy shit, look at this.

[Zooms in on side of house.]

Dylon: It's like the plants are growing into the house, like check this out, I mean, it's not like going up the wall, it's actually trying to go like into the wall itself, like take a look here. Uh, Jesus Christ. Oh my god, taking over the gutters, too.

[Dylan finds a pool of stagnant water]

Dylon: What is this supposed to be, is that like a pool? I can't really tell, it's just so, it's just so murky and filled with like rain and, er, and like dirt and earth and...fuck, man., that's a shame, it's a shame what happened to the Chandler place.

[Camera pans over the back yard again, then moves toward the road]

Dylon: Oh my god, I feel like, like I genuinely feel like I'm walking through the woods right now. Jesus god almighty, god look at this fucking place. God, I almost tripped over a rock there.

[Dylon notices a dry stone fountain]

Dylon: A little fountain, totally unattended, unkempt, not shocking at all. Okay, going back to my car here, so...

[Camera turns around to Dylon's face]

Dylon: I hope you guys, uh, enjoyed that somewhat. It was uh, definitely worth driving here from Pennsylvania. All right, have a good one, guys.

[Video ends]


Party on, Garth!

e1ectricthunder was a young woman who posted a very brief video of her and an unknown accomplice interacting with Barb. The two of them went to the Chandler home, claimed to be friends of Chris's looking to get in touch with them, and were met only by a very confused-sounding Barb. Their visit was not well-received, especially on the Kiwi Farms, where this was viewed as the harassment of an elderly woman, who was a subject of sexual abuse from her own son, for Internet clout, which lead to her doxing.

On 20 September 2021, she and an unknown male visited 14 Branchland Court, knocked on the door to reveal a seemingly confused Barbara, and asked, babbling, whether Chris was home or not. Barb was previously described as looking frail, more "gone" than usual, and growing facial hair.[6] Barb seemed to be confused when asked about where her son was while Clover howled at the door. Given that Barb did not know that she was being recorded, this was seen by some as evidence that she is not faking having cognitive difficulties as some claimed she did in Chris's begging videos, or at least that her alleged difficulty hearing is getting worse.

The video was then posted to the r/ChrisChanSonichu subreddit,[7] but was deleted though not before being mirrored.

[dog whimpering throughout the video]

Ellen: Hey. Um, I was just wondering if Chris was home. [steps in front of her friend to get closer to Barb] I was just wondering if Chris was home.

Barbara: Pardon?

Ellen: Y- is Chris home?

Barbara: I do not understand.

Ellen: My- My friend Chris, I was just wondering if Chris was here.

Barbara: No.

Ellen: Okay. Thank you. I'm sorry to bother. [Barb closes the door]

Larry Vaughn

On 16 December 2021, Larry Vaughn decided to visit 14 Branchland Court after the totaling of Son-Chu. While there, he took two photos of the property, most notably with the van missing. He would later post both of these photos on Reddit. Larry had also claimed that Barb still lives at the house, despite the accident, and that the property was mostly cleaned up, clearing up the hoard, and possibly all of Chris's belongings.



While Iron_Taipan posted other images, only the ones of the house are relevant here.

On 22 January 2023, Reddit user Iron_Taipan posted[8] to the /r/ChrisChanSonichu subreddit, posting images of a recent trip to Ruckersville. The post included images of what was once The GAMe PLACe, Fashion Square Mall, and some photos of the house.

Made the Pilgrimage & Observations


On the evening of 3 May 2023, redditor DATSJUSTWATINEED2BUS posted a series of images of 14 Branchland Court.[9] What makes this visit notable is that the Redditor saw a glimpse of Barbara Chandler, without being seen by her. DATSJUSTWATINEED2BUS saw her in the upstairs window in the third pic, obscured by the tree. He left immediately after noticing Barb, confident he wasn't spotted. He planned on visiting once more the next morning, although decided against after he found Barb was not in a nursing home.

After I took the third pic I drove a little bit forward to get an additional angle of the house and then thats when I saw her. It was unmistakable, it was her with her white grown and white hair looking off to the right side of the window, possibly doing dishes something, idk whats up there. She wasnt looking at me thankfully but she couldve came to that window after hearing my car (which isnt very quiet, especially at 10 at night) and seeing who was out there.

Maintenance of 14BC's exterior and lawn is continuing to occur, as the lawn appears to have been raked frequently and is actually regaining a healthy green colour. Inside, Chris's Sonichu poster visible from the window to his room is the only obvious sign of his former residence at 14BC. The lights within Chris's room are on, likely for housekeeping by Barbara's caretakers.

On the evening of 25 May 2023, an anonymous post was made to a fan Facebook group[10], showing a picture of 14 Branchland Court and the Fashion Square Mall.

On 4 September 2023, Reddit user nemo1316 posted a photo of the Son-Chu car parked at 14 Branchland Court, indicating that Chris either visited or moved back to Sonichu Headquarters.[11]

Aggravating Art (2023)

Throughout 8 September 2023, Aggravating Art visited 14 Branchland Court again and posted photos on Reddit.

On his first trip, he claimed to have found the house completely empty with no one inside or outside the house.[12]

Just went to Chris home. It’s empty and no one home

Aggravating Art later visited the house again in the evening and found that the lights and fan inside the house were turned on, but there were still no cars at the house. He also claimed he had been staying outside the house all day.[13]

2nd Chris visit of the day. Lights are on and fan is but no car is there and has been all day.

An orange and white cat is seen in these photos, though it is unknown if it is one of the Chandlers' or just a stray.
