Many of us hear about possessions or hauntings and laugh it off as people looking for attention or cult like activity, with good reason as well since many possessions and hauntings are just that. However that’s not the case in Gary, Indiana, where a family was tormented by evil spirits and it was documented by police as well as social services who both visited them home and drew the same conclusion, it’s haunted.
Latoya Ammons lived in the home with her mother and 3 children, a 7 year old boy, his brother who’s 9, and his sister who’s 12. They had been in the home since 2011 and experienced some very strange activity.
One such incident was in December of that year when black flies swarmed their house in spite of the cold weather. The mother recalled killing them but it was to no avail “This is not normal,” Ammons’ mother, Rosa Campbell, remembers thinking. “We killed them and killed them and killed them, but they kept coming back.”
They would also continually hear foot steps climbing the stairs and someone opening and closing the door to the basement, even after they had locked it.
Then one night Latoya awoke to find a shadowy figure pacing the living room and when she investigated there was wet footprints on the floor, enough to make anyone’s spine tingle.
Noises and odd occurrences soon turned to actual physical events.
One night after the death of a loved one the family was in their living room with friends when they heard the screams of the 12 year old daughter coming from her room. They rushed to see what was going on and upon entering the room found her levitating over the bed, unconscious but stiff. They recalled being absolutely terrified and having to pray over top of her until she returned to the bed, and when she awoke she had no recollection of the event at all.
Her guests that night haven’t returned to the house since.
Apparently the other children have also showed signs of possession as well. Their eyes would bulge and they would get eveil smiles on their faces and spoke in deep voices whenever it happened, frightening the family.
The youngest boy would sit in his closet and talk to another child who was never present, saying the child would describe to him what it felt like to be killed. He was also thrown from the bathroom one night when not a soul was near him, but didn’t receive any injuries from it. However one night a headboard smacked the 12 year old girl so hard that the cut required stitches from it.
The family physician also witnessed something very odd when the youngest boy was lifted up and thrown into a wall while they were at the doctors office, again with nobody near him. This prompted police and ambulances to be called and a report filed on the incident. Even the medical staff testified to what they had seen and said they had never witnessed anything like it.
The children were brought to a local hospital for observation and Child Protective Services was called to investigate.
That’s not all, when Child Protective Services visited the hospital to ensure that Latoya wasn’t mentally ill and that the children weren’t in any danger, they witnessed something very strange and detailed it on a report. When the agent showed up the youngest boy began to growl with a deep voice and show his teeth, then his eyes rolled into his head. He then locked his hands around his older brothers neck and refused to let go, it was only after the adults were able to pry his hands away that they free him.
A short time passed, then he looked his brother in the eyes and said “it’s time to die”, in a deep, demonic voice, then said “I will kill you.”
At this point something happened that would make a believer out of anyone.
The youngest boy had a devilish grin on his face then walked backwards up the wall to the ceiling, only to flip over and land on his feet. This was witnessed by the nurse and filed in the CPS report as well. The whole time he did it he was holding his grandmothers hand, never letting go.
“He walked up the wall, flipped over her and stood there,” Walker, the nurse said. “There’s no way he could’ve done that.”
The family finally moved from the home after not being able to rid it of the demons that possessed it. Even then it took several claivoyants and exorcisms from the church for them to rid themselves of the evil that haunted them.
Images from the home capture shadowy figures and strange occurrences.
