We were contacted by a 16 year old girl from Lynn, Massachusetts who was afraid to be in her home alone. Our first question to her was” Are your parents OK with you contacting us?” To make a long story short, her mother was fine with it and we went to their home to interview the family and do a walk through of the residence. After talking with the mother and daughter, we found that the mother worked third shift and the daughter spent most of her time by herself while her mother was sleeping.
The mother went on and on during the interview about all sorts of activity in the home and how she has several friends who are psychic. These friends had been to their home on several occasions told them that there were spirits in the home and that they followed the daughter around.
During the interview the daughter would hardly answer any questions and seemed really shy, which made us wonder how she had come to contact us. At this point we decided to schedule an investigation for later that month. In the meantime I started e-mailing the daughter to see if we could get her to open up. She did, and we found out that her mother was obsessed with hauntings and spirits. She also told us that she watched all the paranormal tv shows by herself and thought that they were real.
After e-mailing with the daughter for a few weeks and better explaining things about the tv shows and hauntings in general, she began to gain some courage and feel better. TV… isn’t it GREAT?!
One thought on “Television”
It’s funny, I think there are a lot of cases that have very similar situations. I think the media has done more to damage research than help it.
