Falling Body Ghost Photo

The falling body ghost goes like this…

Sometime in the 1950s the Cooper family of Texas bought an old house and moved into it. On their first night there, the father took a photo of Mom and Grandma posing with the two kids at the dining room table. Everyone was happy and smiling. They were living the American dream.

But when the photo was subsequently developed, they saw, to their horror, that what looked like a body falling or hanging from the ceiling had materialized behind them. It hadn’t been there when the father took the photo. So where had it come from? Was it an apparition of a deceased former tenant of the house? No one knew.

Amityville Ghost Boy

George Lutz, the man who lived in the Amityville house with his wife, Kathy Lutz, revealed this photo on the Merv Griffin Show in 1979.

Gene Campbell, who was part of the paranormal investigation team led by Ed and Loraine Warren, took the photo. The camera was set up to take photos automatically using infrared.

Some have speculated that it is the ghost of John Defeo, the young boy who was murdered along with his family by Ron Defeo in 1974. Others have suggested it is Paul Bartz, another paranormal investigator involved with the case.

As you can see, Paul Bartz, although young at the time, does not look as young as the Amityville ghost kid. More importantly, it doesn’t look anything like the kid at all.

What I think is more important that who the ghost kid is, is the fact that the eyes are reflecting infra red just like a flesh and blood body would do. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not a ghost kid, I mean, it is also wearing clothes, how and why the hell are ghost always wearing clothes? Does it mean that articles of clothing have souls? DUN DUN daaaaaaAAAAH! Maybe next time when you lose a sock, you’ll be a little more concerned.

The Green Children of Woolpit

In the city of Woolpit, in 1135, strange children were discovered during the harvest. The reapers saw the children emerging from the pits designed to catch wolfs and went over to investigate. The children had green skin, were dressed in a strange style of clothing made from unidentifiable fabrics and speaking gibberish.

The children were taken to the landowner, Richard de Calne, where they were offered bread and cheese to eat, but they refused the food. They burst into tears and appeared to be in great distress, so the men continued to audition different types of food. When the children were presented peas, they excitedly ate them up.

Over time, the boy became disspondant, stopped eating, and soon passed away. The girl, however, seemed to thrive. As she matured, she lost her green skin and started eating foods other than green veggies. She soon learned how to speak English, got baptized, and married.

Later in her life, when questioned about her origins, she and her brother had come from a place called “The Land of Saint Martin” where it was always in perptetual twilight. She described the land as “luminous” and that there was another city that could be seen in the distance that was also luminous, however, she did not know where the land of saint martin was.

She said that they were tending their father’s sheep when the flock wandered into a cave. The brother and sister went in pursuit, attempting to drive the herd back out, but heard bells tinkiling within the caverns, and decided to investigate.

They came out the other side, to a place where full daylight blazed down on them. They grew tired and layed down until they heard the sound of the reapers, where they were then discovered.

The reason I love this obscure and weird piece of history is that, at face value, it seems to be a parable of some kind… You are what you eat, eat more veggies… I don’t know what the message would be, but it doesn’t matter because this allegedly based on true events.

Dog Men Spotted in Graveyards

Wisconsin 1936, Jefferson County
A Security was making his rounds on the grounds of a convent for the disabled. Back behind the main building was an old cemetery. He noticed some commotion coming from one of the Indian burial mounds. It looked to be a dog trying to dig up the grave.

He shone his flashlight on it only to reveal something that was not of the known world. He noticed it was man sized, shaggy and had pointed ears.

This is where the account gets weird. It is alleged that the creature stood up on two legs, turned towards the night guard, and growled Gadara, which is an ancient city in the bible, a place known as “the city of demons”. It then took off, upright on two legs.

The night guard, a religious man, new the city well and quickly identified the beast reference. In fact, when speaking of his encounter to his son, he said that he thought the thing was a demon.

He certainly witnessed something strange, whether dogmen are demons or not, well, I guess that could be up for debate. This account, however, was not the only one involving a graveyard.

In 2003 another Wisconsin resident encountered a very similar scenario involving a dog like man. The young man drove past a graveyard to see a tall, wolf like creature standing on two legs, with an obvious build that was less canid and more humanoid.

In Stan Gordon’s “Silent Invasion”, seeing doglike/bigfoot humanoids lurking around graveyards is a common thing. In that book, however, the creatures are thought to be a possible form of alien instead of a demon.

Creepy Clown Sightings

Although bizarre, out of place clown sightings are nothing new. The summer of 2016 has certainly provided us with remarkably disturbing and noteworthy encounters.

The first incredibly disturbing account happened at a South Carolina apartment complex. This is a statement from one of the parents of the children.
“‘Mama, there’s clowns out there in the woods and they’re trying to get us to come out there.’ Some had chains, some had knives, and some were holding out money, saying, ‘Come here, we’ve got candy for you,’ but they wouldn’t go.”

Much like the adults in Stephen Kings “It”, the children’s claims of seeing clowns was met with skepticism, until they themselves started seeing and hearing the culprits.

Sightings soon cropped up in North Carolina and Ohio. An Ohio teen claimed to have seen and been chased by someone wearing clown garb and wielding a knife.

I recently came across this sighting while scrolling through my instagram feed. This happened just yesterday, Saturday morning, October 1st. 2016. Sure it would be easy to fake. But in light of all these recent sightings, it makes the encounter genuinely creepy.

Max Headroom Pirate Incident

The Wyoming incident might have been a hoax, however, there was a very real pirate broadcast that happened in Chicago, back in 1987.

The first occurrence happened during the sports segment of WGN-TV Channel 9’s nightly news. The broadcast was cut in during the rundown of the Chicago bears, Detroit lion’s game when some static broke and a man in a Max Headroom mask came on the screen. It was brief, and there was no audio but it did get people’s attention.

Later that night, the highjacker broke into a broadcast of Dr. Who on WTTW, a PBS affiliate. This time there was audio and it was much longer.

The highjackers were never caught and I tend to agree with Max when he states that he created a giant masterpiece. I’m not a fan of performance art, but the cynical tone of this cryptic manifesto was delightful.

The Wyoming Incident

The Wyoming incident was the 2006 high jacking of a news station that broadcasted to all of Niobrara County in northeastern Wyoming. The transmit ion lasted just under six minutes, the footage showing disembodied heads making strange faces, cryptic text, and eerie music.

This incident might have come and gone, had it not been for complaints coming in from the people who witnessed the transmission. The claims of the effected were nausea, vomiting and headaches. Some even claimed to have hallucinations. The broadcast appeared to be causing these effects, as it was transmitted at 17 and 19 Hz, a frequency that is said to have similar effects on the senses.

The people who transmitted this broadcast have never been caught…and that’s because it was a hoax… to be more specific, it was a hoax that was an ARG. If you don’t know what an ARG is, it is basically a game that uses the Internet as a platform for a type of scavenger hunt.

If you want to know to know more about this Internet myth, I have included link to a statement by the creator in the info box. You can hear the makers of “The Wyoming Incident” explain themselves in their own words. Enjoy.
