Couple claim they are being molested by a demonic poltergeist


In a story reminiscent of the film Paranormal Activity, the Fry family of New Tredegar, South Wales say they have been molested by an evil poltergeist for months

A terrified family attacked in the night by a dreaded "incubus demon" have called a ghostbuster to get rid of the malevolent spirit.

In a story reminiscent of the film Paranormal Activity, the Fry family say they have been molested by an evil poltergeist for months.

Mum Tracey, 46, even says she is beaten up in the night by the phantom - leaving her covered with bruises in the morning.

In desperation her husband Keiron, 32, forked out £100 to a specialist to "cleanse" the house and has brought a vicar in to bless their cursed abode.

The phantom, which has also been menacing the couple's three children, was summoned by a using a Ouija board in the house, they say.

That friend is no longer on speaking terms with the family.

Dad-of-three Keiron took a pic of the ghost in his sons' bedroom which he says shows a small child in a white gown with a blue face and a tail.

Keiron said: "We are being molested by demons.

"My wife goes to bed fine, doesn't feel anything in the night but when she wakes up she's in agony.
"I wake up the next day and said: 'I didn't do that. I would never beat my wife'.

My Uncle, The Jesey Devil

IF YOU WERE TO CRACK a phone book in South Jersey and drag your finger along the pages in the "L" section, you'd find rows and rows of people named Leeds. And if you were to ring them up — one by one — and ask, sheepishly, if the person on the other end of the line knew anything about the Jersey Devil, you might hear claims of direct lineage, the kind of boasts made by folks with ancestors off the Mayflower or descended from European royalty.

Bill Sprouse, 39, has made that phone call and also has his own claim to stake. When he was 10 years old, the South Jersey native and author of "The Domestic Life of the Jersey Devil," was visiting his grandmother — his "BeBop," Helen Leeds — at her tiny house in Absecon when she told him, quite plainly, that he was related to the Jersey Devil.

The news did not immediately impress him.

"I kind of forgot about it for 10 or 15 years," he tells me as we drive down suburban backroads at the edge of the Pine Barrens, the Jersey Devil's backyard. "I think it's one of the weirdest things about growing up in this part of New Jersey. Somebody can tell you you're related to a monster and it won't seem like a very big deal."

Eventually, the story became Sprouse's back-pocket anecdote, the thing he'd pull out at parties and job interviews. "It wasn't until I left New Jersey — until I went to college and started mentioning that fact outside the local context," he says, "that I realized how crazy it is."

But there was something to it, this story. BeBop had some evidence.

The Woman in Black cast fear they are being haunted by ghost

When the classic ghost story was performed at the Stephen Joseph theatre in Scarborough about 20 years ago there were reported sightings of a phantom sitting in the back row during rehearsals.

The apparition, dubbed Mabel in a Mac, was believed to be the spirit of a cleaning woman who fell to her death when the venue was an Odeon cinema.

Mabel was said to have been stealing money from the till and plunged over the balcony into the stalls while being chased by her manager.

The ghostly figure of a woman was also seen in a box at The Fortune Theatre in London during the play’s 26-year run in the West End. With The Woman In Black being revived in Scarborough by Sir Alan Ayckbourn, the artistic director of the Stephen Joseph venue, its cast and crew fear Mabel has returned to haunt them.

Frightened staff have heard unexplained footsteps during rehearsals and believe they have felt the icy touch of Mabel.

Jason Mullen, duty manager of the Stephen Joseph, says the spooky events centre on the area of the McCarthy Auditorium where Mabel is said to have died many decades ago.

He said: “You feel her brush past you when you’re sitting in the back row alone and sometimes she prods you on the arm. Other funny things have happened as well, like boxes being moved around in one of the store rooms.

'Haunted' house for rent in Liverpool listed on

A house in Toxteth reportedly haunted by a 135-year-old poltergeist that has ‘lifted a woman out of her bed’ is up for rent.

Situated in Pickwick Street, potential tenants will need nerves of steel to arrange a viewing of the three-bedroom terraced property, in which there has been ‘significant paranormal activity’ reported by previous inhabitants - with one expert saying it is haunted by a poltergeist from the 1800s.

Social housing group, Plus Dane, who own the property, have confirmed reports of paranormal activity were first made in 2008 by the then residents.

On the market for £91 per week, anyone moving into the property will need to be aware of their potentially paranormal new roommates that they’ll share the house with - which an expert has described as a ‘violent spirit’ that previously lifted a former tenant out of her bed, and shook another house so much that the owner thought it was going to collapse.

Local paranormal expert Tom Slemen says that the ghost, known as the Pickwick Poltergeist, was first reported over 130 years ago.

He said: “There have been stories about a very unusual poltergeist on Pickwick Street that date back to the 1880s at least’ unusual in the fact that it seems to get around - most ghosts stick to haunting one property, but there are a rare few who flit from house to house, often in the same street, and the Pickwick Street Poltergeist is one of those.

“A landlady connected to the letting of Number 69, a Mrs Euphemia Nimlock, was also lifted out of her bed by the same violent spirit and, and another neighbour Ismael Jones (Number 70) was under the impression the house was going to collapse because of the vibrations.”

The listing describes the abode as: “3-bedroom terraced house in a popular location off Park Road, close to the Tesco Superstore. It has two singles and one double bedroom, rear yard, upstairs bathroom and two living rooms.”

But it then adds: “Please note previous tenants have advised us that they have experienced paranormal activity at the property.”
