California couple report ‘green entities’ inside home

A Perris, CA, couple reported capturing “green entities” and orbs inside their home since 2012, according to October 1, 2014, testimony in Case 60250 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

“My husband and I were in the office room area with the door open playing Xbox 360 on our flat screen TV,” the reporting witness stated. “I felt a strange feeling as if we were being watched or something or someone was in the room. I grabbed my camera and just started taking pictures around the whole room and doorway. I then looked at the pictures I captured and was amazed at the outcome.”

Even after moving three times, and installing four security cameras, the orbs and entities continue to appear.

Ancient Giants of Delavan Lake

The box ad lay between a charity’s plea for donated boats and cars and an announcement of an open house for a senior apartment village. “Giant Skeletons Found at Lake Lawn,” it declared, right there on page 9 of the May 4, 2014 Walworth County Sunday. “Lake Lawn Hotel 1911.” The ad continued: “In 1911 the Phillips brothers uncovered skeletons that ranged from 7 to 9 feet! Author L.A. Marzulli is offering a $500 reward for photographs of the dig site showing the skeletons, at the Lake Lawn Hotel.”

The mention of ancient, giant skeletons in my local paper stopped me cold. I knew that a number of such remains had long ago been disinterred from one or more of the 100-plus ancient conical and effigy mounds built along the shores of Delavan Lake, Wisconsin. This was before the structures were protected by law as sacred and historic treasures. Now known as the Lake Lawn Lodge and Golf Course, the popular resort is only about a 15-minute drive from my home. I’ve been there many times and have researched the mounds and skeletons for the “Ancient Mysteries” section of Weird Wisconsin. But I’d never found any photos of the dig site, nor even a reference to such photos. None of the original, 1911 newspaper stories on the discovery had provided illustrations. If such photos existed, I was very eager to see them.

Haunting tales surround old Edwards School

Despite the school being abandoned for over ten years it seems that not everyone has left the building.

The Elizabeth V. Edwards School in New Jersey opened in 1930 and served as both an elementary school and a high school until its closure in 2004. Tales of a ghostly presence have surrounded the building for years, but it wasn't until it fell in to disuse that it would go on to cement its haunted reputation.

Maintenance coordinator Arte Walshe is just one of the staff members to have witnessed something unusual in the school.

Just In Time For Halloween - A Real-Life Ghostbuster!

With Halloween rapidly approaching, reports of paranormal sightings will start to escalate as people get into the spirit of the spooky holiday. While most are obvious hoaxes, there are a few reported by people who genuinely believe they have encountered a ghost or spirit. It is these perceptions that professional skeptic Benjamin Radford spends his time investigating and resolving, with logical explanations - so far, he has not failed!

The 44-year-old New Mexico resident who uses journalistic reporting, critical thinking skills and a thorough "scientific process" to debunk the ghost sightings, decided to get into this unusual profession after reading about James Randi, a former magician turned paranormal investigator who helped found the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry in 1976.

The ghostbuster who has been doing this for 18 years, says he receives an average of half-a-dozen requests a month from people wanting to hire him to investigate things ranging from haunted houses to crop circles to lake monsters and even the presence of Sasquach or Bigfoot. Radford says he likes cases where he has either a photo or video to work with. This allows him to examine the evidence carefully and get to the bottom of the mystery.

Over the years, he has encountered hundreds of interesting sightings. The most recent one that he resolved in late September, involved a clip from a surveillance video at a police station in Espanola, New Mexico. The footage showed what appeared to be blurry human-shaped figure walking across a parking lot and then through a locked area of the fence. The police officer who noticed it, initially thought it was just an insect. However upon closer examination he decided it was something more sinister. Scared, he showed it to the other officers and the video soon became a viral sensation and newsworthy enough to be shown on the network television show "Good Morning America".

Black Eyed Child of Cannock Chase: Psychic reveals tortured soul suffered from diptheria

A psychic who claims to have come face-to-face with The Black Eyed Child has revealed the ghoul was the victim of a diphtheria outbreak in the 1800s.

Christine Hamlett says her special powers allow ghosts like the girl with the charcoal eye sockets – spotted dozens of times in recent weeks – to present themselves to her.

And after photographing the infamous spook praying twice on the sprawling Cannock Chase, Staffs, the 57-year-old has now released new intriguing pictures of the supposed phenomenon.

First evidence of 'life after death' found?

An extensive new medical study has found tantalizing evidence that awareness may continue after we die.

In the largest study of its kind, scientists at the University of Southampton examined more than 2,000 cases from hospitals in the US, UK and Austria of people who had suffered a cardiac arrest before being successfully resuscitated.

What they found was that in as many as 40 percent of cases the subject recalled maintaining some level of awareness during the period of time in which they would have been clinically dead.

Clemmons murder suspect sacrificed animals, spoke ‘as though he was possessed’

For more than four days we’ve been figuring out what went on inside a Clemmons home, before two bodies were found buried in the back yard.
And since they were found on Sunday, we’ve been watching the aftermath.

Yet, what took place there around the time the bodies were buried has only been told through brief descriptions on arrest warrants — until now.

One person, who claims to have been there around the time warrants say the bodies were buried, spoke with FOX8 about what it was like inside the home on Knob Hill Drive. We have concealed this person’s identity, and given the person the nickname “Paul.”

“When you walked in the first room, it was kind of blacked out, and the wallpaper had been peeled off. There was like scribbles, and scratches, and graffiti, and Arabic and Satan and swastikas,” said Paul. “It was a very, very thick environment. It was, it had a tenseness to it.”

Skeletal Remains Found In Yard Of 'Evil Gods' Worshiper

Two North Carolina residents have been arrested after police allegedly found the skeletal remains of two people buried in a shallow grave in the couple's back yard.

Pazuzu Illah Algarad, 35, and Amber Nicole Burch, 24, were both arrested Sunday after police executed a search warrant and found the remains, according to WXII.

It's currently unclear why Forsyth County police executed a search warrant on the home, but this isn't the first time Algarad has been involved in a murder case.

In 2010, Algarad was convicted on a charge of accessory after the fact in the shooting death of 30-year-old Joseph Chandler. Chandler's body was found near a river by police after his mother reported him missing that morning.

According to state records, Algarad was released on probation.

Bianca Heath claimed she lived with Algarad for a month in 2005, and that he had spoken of the bones in his back yard.

Man desecrates graves, dresses child corpses up, leaves them around his house

A sick historian dug up 150 graves so he could dress the corpses of dozens of young girls for birthday parties.

Russian Anatoly Moskvin removed the bodies of girls aged between three and 12 to fulfill his twisted fantasies.

He then took them home and turned them into a grisly mummy collection, dressing the bodies and skeletons in stockings and dresses, and even making one look like a teddy bear.

Moskvin, who speaks 13 languages and was described by some as 'a genius', also gave the mummified corpses names and organised birthday parties for them.

A video made by Moskvin and found at his apartment by investigators showed a corridor cluttered with wedding dresses and bright, colourful clothes.

In a room the camera zoomed in on the faces of the girls' faces, wrapped in light beige fabric. His voice over on the video said: "These dolls are made of mummified human remains."

Science meets voodoo in a New Orleans festival of water

Perhaps no other city in the United States is as well-suited as New Orleans to wed a scientific discussion of environment with a celebration of the occult.

That's exactly what unfolded on Saturday at "Anba Dlo," an annual New Orleans festival where prominent scientists joined with practitioners of the voodoo religion to look for answers to the challenges of dealing with water.

In "The Big Easy," a low-lying Louisiana city devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and threatened by the BP oil spill of 2010, water is a subject nearly impossible to ignore.

Four representatives of Rand Corp, the global consultancy that helped develop the state’s master plan for coastal restoration, joined a dozen environmentalists, architects and policy specialists who took part in Anba Dlo, which translates from a Haitian dialect as "beneath the waters."
