Indiana's famous "Demon House" has been demolished

The home that sparked national attention over reports of it being infested with powerful demonic activity, leading to the purported possession of nearly an entire family, has been torn down, the Indiana Star reported.
The razing of the Gary, Indiana property followed its purchase by the host and executive producer of "Ghost Adventures," Zak Bagans in early 2014.

Bagans said he now plans to release a documentary on the residence's haunting later this year which will reveal the reason behind its demolition.

"Something was inside that house that had the ability to do things that I have never seen before — things that others carrying the highest forms of credibility couldn't explain either," he told the IndyStar via email. "There was something there that was very dark yet highly intelligent and powerful."

One of its last residents was mother-of-three, Latoya Ammons, who sought religious, medical and law enforcement help after allegedly experiencing a series of disturbing events inside. Those included family members levitating, speaking in tongues, convulsing and acting extremely violent.

Some of the incidents were backed up by members of the local police department, as well as workers with the state's Department of Child Services.

In one such incident, one of Ammons’ children was described as walking backwards up a wall inside of a hospital room, flipping into the air and landing on his feet. In another instance, at their doctor’s office, medical staff reported seeing one of the boys being lifted and thrown into a wall “without nobody touching him,” according to a Department of Child Services report.

Taxi Drivers still plagued by "Ghostly" passengers in Japan

A taxi driver in north-east Japan picks up a passenger in an area devastated by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
He starts the meter and asks for the destination, to which the customer gives a strange response.

Either then, or sometime later, the driver turns around to address the man or woman - but the passenger has vanished.

This is because, it is claimed, it was a 'ghost passenger' who was, in fact, killed in the disaster five years ago.

At least seven taxi drivers in Ishinomaki have reported such an experience of a 'phantom fare', according to The Asahi Shimbun newspaper.

The coastal town in Miyagi Prefecture was among the regions most seriously affected by the deadly tsunami, which killed nearly 16,000 people in total.
 Speaking to Yuka Kudo, a student of sociology at Tohoku Gakuin University, one taxi driver told of how he may have seen one of these residents just months after the March 2011 earthquake.

He said he was working in the town when a young woman dressed in a coat climbed into his cab near Ishinomaki Station and told him: “Please go to the Minamihama (district).”

In response, he told her that the area was 'almost empty' and asked her if she was sure she wished to go there.

The woman replied in a trembling voice, "Have I died?".

Ghost hunter claims to have captured angry GHOST on film (video)

Clem Dallaway, 40, set up a camera in a function room of his local community centre after staff reported strange goings on, including broken furniture and belongings going missing.

His recording in the Abbeydale Community Centre in Redditch, Worcs., appears to show a stroppy spectre causing mischief after hours.

He set the camera up in the centre on Friday which appeared to show a door opening on its own and a chair being scraped backwards.
The eerie footage ends with the camera being shoved on the floor.

Since the 1.23-minute clip was uploaded onto Mr Dallaway's Facebook page it has attracted more than 9,000 hits.

Mr Dallaway, from Redditch, said: "All I know is that customers and members of staff have heard bangs, footsteps and the same door, which leads to the skittle alley, opening.

"There have been a few reports of people hearing bangs in the club, including members of staff.

The door seemingly opens by itself in the empty room

Scared Mom filmed ghosts on a baby monitor (video)

Jade Yates, who lives in Barongarook, Victoria, Australia, watched the spooky footage through the baby monitor as two figures appeared to float above the cot.

The terrified mum posted the clip to Facebook alongside a short description, which began: 'Fair to say I won't be sleeping very well tonight.'

Ghostly figures: Terrified Jade Yates claims to have filmed the apparition of a mother and child above her baby.
The video shows baby Ruby curled up in her blanket while fast asleep as a white figure suddenly emerges exactly above where she rests.

It appears to have a head and body and moves from left to right before floating towards the wall and shrinking in size.

Friendly Ghost lives with a family in Lamar, Missouri

There is nothing unusual about the house that you would notice in driving by. It is just a typical older home — built in the early 1950s — on a residential street in Lamar, the town that is probably best known for being the birthplace of Harry S. Truman.

It has obviously been well maintained over the years, but it has that pleasant appearance of being preserved rather than brought up to date repeatedly in order to keep pace with architectural fads and fashions. Those passing by would never dream that it has a rather unusual feature.

The couple who lives there is sharing their home with a rather active, but not at all frightening, ghost.

Bill and Mary — not their real names — have lived there for more than 10 years now and became aware of their spiritual housemate during their move-in.

“What I think is funny is that the old farmhouse we lived in before moving here looked like it ought to be haunted, but nothing ever happened there. Then we bought this one, and it is the exact opposite. We were still moving in when Bill began hearing footsteps down the hallway when we were both unpacking boxes in the living room, and when he mentioned them, I heard them, too. Then on about the third or fourth load, we were unloading the pickup when Bill told me to look at the picture window, and when I did, there was a man standing in the living room watching us. There wasn’t any question of it being a real live intruder. He was hazy looking and you could see the wall across the room right through him. I could tell, though, that he had on what looked like jeans and a flannel shirt.”

Their guest, or as Mary said, “maybe we are the guests,” is rather active, but has not shown any sign of being anything but curious and benign.

“This is not one of those horror movie hauntings,” Bill said. “It is more like he is watching over us than anything else. But for some reason, he seems to spend a lot of time in the bathroom. We have actually seen him in there maybe four or five times now, and on two occasions the toilet has flushed when there was no one in there — no one living, anyway. Once it was in the middle of the night and once during the day. I don’t have any idea what that is about.
