People all over the world are fascinated by the story of a woman who moved into a home in Gary, Indiana that she believes is a “portal to hell.” The viral nature of the story may have rescued her and her family from a home she believes is possessed, as Zak Bagans, host and executive producer of “Ghost Adventures” on the Travel Channel, offered Wednesday to purchase the home for $35,000.
Her story of demonic possession has been substantiated by a police chief who now believes in ghosts and the local DCS who took the emergency step of taking custody of the children without a court order.
I am admittedly a skeptic about things like this, but the stories of levitating children, strange voices and children walking backwards up walls are pretty disturbing, especially considering these things were not only witnessed by the immediate family but also law enforcement officials and doctors.
Bagans is a genius because the viral nature of the story should guarantee a very large audience for the show. I know I’m going to watch it, aren’t you? I am creeped the hell out by this story. Let me just insert a few reminders of just how crazy it is: The family doctor was cursed at in “demonic voices.” The youngest boy was “lifted and thrown into the wall with nobody touching him,” according to a DCS report. The police chief reported seeing the 9-year-old child don a “weird grin” and walk backwards up a wall to the ceiling. He then flipped over his grandmother, landing on his feet. He never let go of his grandmother’s hand.
Sorry to return to this GIF, but I must.
Psychologists who evaluated Ammons and her children characterized her fixation on demons as being part of a “delusional system.” That still doesn’t explain other people witnessing these strange events too, unless her delusions have rubbed off on her children, who also happen to have some serious acrobatic skills.
Either way, I’m intrigued and will probably watch whatever show transpires from this. I also watch Mob Wives though, so that’s not saying much.
