Police in Gary, Indiana don’t need to go to an amusement park to see a haunted house, they say they’ve got one of their, according to a report on IndyStar.com.
Gary police Capt. Charles Austin says his officers were called to investigate claims made by a woman named Latoya Ammons that her home was overrun by demons.
Ammons says the demons possessed her children, ages 7, 9 and 12 shortly after the family moved into the house in 2011. By the time the family moved out last year, Ammons said the house buzzed with everything from swarms of flies (a tell-tale sign of spirits) to free-roaming ghost children.
After a very thorough investigation, his officers say they believe Ammons’ story; and they’ve got the pictures to prove it.
Included in Austin’s report, and on IndyStar, is a picture which, apparently, shows a ghost-like figure hovering in a window at the home. Police say the house was unoccupied when the spooky image was taken.
Not surprisingly, there are some authorities in Indiana who aren’t so certain about Ammons’ claims. A doctor who visited the children described the family as, “delusional,” and another person close to the case said they were, “performing.”
Perhaps out of an abundance of caution, case workers removed the children from the home, which they described as well kept, and adequate food.
The children have since been returned to their mother’s care and have moved on to another home that, for now anyways, appears to be demon-free.
These days, the biggest menace on quiet Carolina Street is a steady stream of site seers in search of a true haunted house.
