Halloween night contest (prizes won, no more emails)

We have a puzzle for you tonight.  Terry has provided us with another TF2 related scavenger hunt - so another 'thank you' to him for keeping things interesting.  This hunt's not easy, so the prize is going to be good.  The third person to correctly email us all 8 answers receives a Kringle Collection (clean).  The first and second person with correct answers each receive a regular key (not an eerie key).  If you send incorrect answers your email does not add to the count and of course you won't win anything.

Today we run (because the Horseless Headless Horsemann wants your head to be his first for Halloween) down the haunted memory lane to see what Valve gave us on this holiday in past years.
All of these answers can be found on the Wikipedia pages that are about the last 3 Halloween events in the Update Gallery section - all of the answers will be in the gallery images. (Links at bottom). Some answers are found in the text, some you have to analyze the picture, and others you have to read handwriting. You don't need to note which update the questions are from, just find the answers to the questions.

Happy Halloween and have fun!
1. What will the mangled corpses of the recently deceased plague the living with?
2. Why is getting the exact same hat better?
3. Where was Zepheniah Mann’s estate?
4. What did Zepheniah Mann write his Last Will and Testament on?
5. What was scary enough to give you white hair and put you in an insane asylum?
6. What can the introductions cause people to have?
7. What class of TF2 character does the Monoculous come from?
8. What can be earned later because “there’s always next Halloween”?

  1. It was great to have a puzzle again, as I don't like leaving it pretty much up to chance and I can enjoy the puzzle, even if I don't win. I had a bit of (misplaced) confidence that I had my answers correct.

    So my question is, what was the answer to number 3?

  2. I'm a bit confused by your listing on the Coffin Kit, you have one price that says a key for the normal version, and then the other says 3-4 for the alternate. Is it 3-4 keys for the haunted or 1 key for the haunted? Makes sense to me that the haunted is the 1 key and the 3-4 key is for the normal, craftable version right (given the majority are haunted)? Didn't know if one of those was maybe for the uncraftable version.
