6. The exorcism of Anneliese Michelle
Anneliese Michel was born on 21 September 1952 in West Germany into a very united Christian family. Around the age of sixteen, Anneliese was diagnosed with epilepsy. His condition worsened from then on. In 1970, after her third seizure, she was prescribed a combination of medications, some of which included antipsychotics because she complained of seeing demonic faces.
In 1972, she explains hearing voices telling her that she was “damned” and that she would “rot in hell”. Her aversion to religious symbols and the once comforting places turned into revulsion, and on that occasion the family began to see Anneliese as possessed. In 1975, his family obtained approval for an exorcism, stopped all medical interventions and relied solely on exorcisms to drive the demons out of Anneliese.
Unlike films based on this case, there is no happy ending here. After nearly 70 exorcisms, Anneliese died of malnutrition and neglect.
5. Reincarnation of Satnam Singhs
Taranjit Singh was born in the village of Alluna Miana near Payal in Ludhiana, India. At the age of 2, he recalls his previous life. He explains that in his old life he had already (therefore learned to) ride a bicycle home from school with a friend when he was hit by a scooter and died of head injuries the next day. As the investigation continued, many of Singh’s allegations proved to be true.
4. Annabelle the doll
It is assumed that the doll was bought in 1970 in a second-hand store as a fairly harmless gift. It was given to a nursing student named Donna, who discovered shortly after she had it, that the doll moved around on her own from time to time. Even more troubling, if left alone, it would be found in different parts of the house.
The worst events started after people began to doubt Annabelle’s ability to do anything. The first alleged victim was a friend of Lou’s. After expressing his doubt about her, Lou woke up from a terrible nightmare to the feeling that he was choking. Awakening this, Lou looked down to find Annabelle crawling on her leg. Lou was subsequently attacked by an invisible force that left seven distinct claws on his chest.
In reality, it was more likely that the doll was the puppet of a demon who was a doll representing innocence.
3. Lizard Man of Scape Ore
A video mentions the first recorded encounter with a lizard man from the Scape Ore marsh, where Christopher Davis’ car was reportedly attacked by him. But the story does not boil down to a single encounter. For several months after the Davis meeting, other facts in Bishopville swamps were found with claw and bite marks. Besides, and according to traces found here and there, the FBI will file unclassifiable fingerprints.
But some of the Chupacabra stories have become distorted over time. Originally, the creature was a blood-sucking vampire monster, fairly tall with points on its back and red, shiny eyes. Over time (possibly with science), the animal’s appearance mutated and became that of a wild dog or coyote with a skin disease.
1. The ghost of Greeenbrier
Zona was born and raised in Greenbrier County, USA in 1896. She fell in love in a romantic way with a blacksmith who had just moved to the same town: Edward Stribbling Trout Shue. Although Zona had already had one child out of wedlock, her two children no longer lived with it. However, Zona’s mother had bad feelings about her daughter’s husband.
Everything seemed to be going well, until one day, a few months later, a grocery boy whom Shue had sent home, discovered Zona at the bottom of the stairs, dead.
From then on, Shue’s behavior became strange. He meticulously guarded the body, in particular by making sure that the evening body “put back in place”. A doctor came to determine Zona’s death, but he was unable to fully inspect her body. Therefore, its original cause of death was cited as a natural cause of death.
Some time later, Zona’s mother, Mary Jane Heaster, says she was visited by her daughter’s ghost. Zona’s ghost recounted how she was really killed and who did it. Mary was then convinced that her daughter’s husband, Shue, was to blame. Using the testimony of her daughter’s ghost, she managed to have her daughter’s body exhumed and perform a real autopsy. This time it was revealed that she had indeed been murdered. Shue was arrested in 1897, tried and finally found guilty of the murder of shona Heaster and sentenced to life imprisonment. However, his punishment was shortened because he died in 1900 from one of the epidemics that spread throughout the prison.
