Ghost Adventures halloween special is called a disgrace by former home owner

Ghost Adventures halloween special is called a disgrace by former home owner 90

The woman who owned an allegedly haunted farmhouse in Harrisville for 32 years has come out against a program about the property that premiered Halloween night on the Travel Channel, questioning a scene in which a Burrillville police officer is seen discussing alleged calls for service to the home during the time she lived there.

Norma Sutcliffe, who owned the house that inspired the 2013 hit film The Conjuring from 1987 through June of 2019, has long said that the property at 1677 Round Top Road is not filled with malevolent ghosts and spirits as many have claimed.

And following a two-hour Ghost Adventures special on the house that was released last week, Sutcliffe is speaking out – and has filed a complaint with the Burrillville Police Department regarding statements made about her life there.

“This is a disgrace and I am angry about an appearance of a police officer claiming things that are absolute lies,” Sutcliffe told NRI NOW.

The team from Ghost Adventures visited the house in August to film the special, in which paranormal investigator Zak Bagans meets with former resident Andrea Perron, among others, and claims to attempt to verify reports that the house is “cursed.”

Perron and her family lived on the property in the 1970’s, and it was their experience with famed paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren that inspired the film – the first movie in what is now a series known as The Conjuring Universe.

Sutcliffe sold the home, which she and her husband bought in 1987 for $169,500, to Cory and Jennifer Heinzen in June for $439,000.

The Heinzens, also paranormal investigators hailing from Maine, have said they plan to open the farmhouse to the public, and camera crews were on the property filming for a national program within months of their arrival in Burrillville.

“We’re here because the new owners believe that this dark force has been reawakened,” Bagans says.

Bagans also speaks to Burrillville Police Lt. Albert Carlo in the program, dubbed, “The Curse of the Harrisville Farmhouse.”

“We’ve tracked down the lieutenant who has jurisdiction over this area”, the star of the popular ghost hunting program says.

“A lot of people knew of the house and knew of some of the things that happened here,” says Carlo. “After the movie it became non-stop traffic up and down the road”

Bagans says that Carlo told him that the owner “just before Cory,” had several emergency calls to 911 for mysterious illnesses.

“We would come here in the middle of the night,” said Carlo. “It was constant for a guy that didn’t seem to be all that ill.”

Sutcliffe calls the statement “lies,” and she has filed a complaint over the story with the Burrillville Police Department.

Asked about the appearance, Burrillville Police Col. Stephen Lynch said that the Policeman’s Bill of Rights prohibits him from speaking publicly on any complaints regarding an officer.

The show also discusses incidents that allegedly took place in the nearly 300-year-old home, including reports of suicides and murders of members of the Arnold family that once owned it.

The problem, says Sutcliffe, a counselor who operated a daycare facility in the house for some 20 years, is that it’s all false. Sutcliffe says she researched the home, and the Arnold family, whose stories have become an urban legend, at the library in Harrisville.

“There was never any murders, suicides or drowning on property,” said Sutcliffe, running through members of the Arnold family named as victims of mysterious deaths on the program. “Prudence was murdered in Douglas, Mass. in her home. No drowning was ever published.  Sarah and John died at their homes.”

And while some may think it’s harmless to indulge in curiosity around a story that is ultimately fabricated, Sutcliffe disagrees, saying that the historic property should be “revered not exploited.”

She has also sent a letter to the Travel Channel.

“You have lied about everything,” wrote Sutcliffe. “Do what should have been done before you filmed. That is to find truth through evidence.”

“If you claim (it’s) so obviously haunted then get the real scientists and skeptics in to do research,” Sutcliffe wrote. “But you don’t dare.  We can’t continue to defraud the world, more so now. We have enough of that surrounding America and the world.”

She’s not alone on her mission to clear up the facts.

J’aime Rubio says she has spent a lot of time researching the life of the woman whose spirit alleged haunts the property – Bathsheba Sherman – and has published her findings.

“It was not until the 1970’s that mysterious rumors sprang up out of thin air, ruining Bathsheba’s reputation posthumously,” wrote Rubio in a blog, which can be found here. “No one in town had ever heard of any questionable events regarding Bathsheba, but all of a sudden, stories were spreading like wildfire in this small community. Older folks who respected history became agitated by the false accusations, while the younger more superstitious ones wondered about the possibilities of this spine-chilling folklore actually being real.”

Rubio has made it her mission to clean up the record, and tell the true history behind the home and its former inhabitants.

“To give any entity an identity and attach to them the name or stories of people who were once actual living human beings and then sully them in death is so very wrong,” Rubio wrote. “This has happened to poor Bathsheba, and for far too long. My job as a writer is to sift through the story and get to the raw facts. Sometimes we find out that stories are not fact based, and so we have the responsibility to provide the true information to the public in order to set the stories straight.”

For Sutcliffe, it’s about protecting a piece of history.

She says that when the movie came out in 2013, people began visiting the house at all times of day and night and damaging the property.

“Even though I no longer own farm, I will forever fight to protect the value of the property as an invaluable heritage site,” she said.

Tesla autopilot sensor recorded “ghost” in an empty cemetery

Tesla autopilot sensor recorded "ghost" in an empty cemetery 93

A Tesla electric car with an activated autopilot function recorded an invisible person who allegedly moved around the cemetery. Social network users jokingly noted in the comments that, most likely, this is some new function from Elon Musk, which allows you to see ghosts.

In the United States, a Tesla electric car with an activated autopilot function recorded an invisible person who allegedly moved through a cemetery.

The corresponding video was posted by Twitter user Ovidiu Maciuc.

The recording shows how a silhouette of a man appears on the monitor of an electric car, moving around the cemetery. After that, the driver raises the camera and starts filming the graveyard through the windshield, but there are no people there.

After some time, the “ghost” went in the opposite direction from Tesla and disappeared from the on-board computer screen.

Social network users jokingly noted in the comments that, most likely, this is some new function from Elon Musk, which allows you to see ghosts.

For many though, if you take into account the comments, the video seemed rather creepy. Some even tried to guess what the navigation system actually showed.

Some users thought the system could recognize ghosts. Others refuted this version and said that the reason for all this is an insufficiently accurate sensor, which was used for the equipment of the Tesla car.

Earlier it became known that Tesla electric cars in the near future may receive a new function with which they can talk with pedestrians. For this, American cars will be equipped with special external speakers. 

In addition, Tesla cars in the future will receive the option to change the horn and sound of movement at low speeds to warn pedestrians. According to Elon Musk, among the sounds of movement there will be the sound of the clatter of a horse’s hooves, and as a whistle – the bleating of a goat.

Mysterious energy source melts Tel Aviv sidewalks, leading to the evacuation of several buildings in Israel

Mysterious energy source melts Tel Aviv sidewalks, leading to the evacuation of several buildings in Israel 94

About two weeks ago, Tel Aviv residents noticed that the concrete surface outside their homes was heating up and steam was coming out of the ground. Tests showed that steam that reached 60 ° C (140 ° F) was water based.

The witness explains: “I was afraid that there was a power line in the area and asked a worker to dig out the ground with a shovel. Steam suddenly came out. I imagined it was probably a geyser. It seemed to me that this was a geological incident – also because there were no problems with electricity in the building. “

Although the experts did not find any hazardous substances or any risk to the stability of buildings at the site, residents as well as kindergartens in the area were evacuated.

Officials described the heat source as “trapped energy” of unknown origin.

Work continues, steam is still rising and the ground is still hot. It is currently unclear what is causing the warming. Note the hole dug in the area. The area is still blocked.

Mysterious origins

City officials said they will “continue to monitor the temperature of the earth, which is expected to cool down for a long time, and will continue to investigate the causes of the unusual event.”

Israel Electric Corporation has not found a connection between heat and power in the area.

The Israel Geological Survey confirmed the rise in temperature after testing ground and water temperature levels, but said it has not yet found an explanation.

Despite their best efforts, municipal officials, the fire department, Israel Electric Corporation and the Ministry of the Environment have yet to find a source of heat.

Meanwhile, the Tel Aviv municipality has informed dozens of evacuees that they can return to their homes. However, residents are not going to return until they receive a detailed account of the source of the mysterious event.

“They evacuated us because they were concerned about our safety, and now they are urging us to return without any convincing explanation. How can you be sure that there is no more danger? “

The night sky in southern Taiwan shows a weird red moon alarming netizens: 2021 disaster year omen?

The night sky in southern Taiwan shows a weird red moon alarming netizens: 2021 disaster year omen? 95

Some people in Chiayi, Taiwan took pictures of a large dark red moon hanging in the night sky on the first night of 2021 and uploaded them to Facebook. There are also people in Tainan who have photographed the rare “red moon”. The weird scene has aroused heated discussions among netizens. Some people worry that an earthquake may occur, while others suspect that this is a precursor to the year of disaster in 2021?

Yesterday, on January 1 at about 8:00 in the evening, Chiayi residents shared a photo of “2021’s first red moon” on Facebook. As you can see in the photo, the weather was quite good at that time. There was a clear big round moon in the night sky, but it was a dark red moon, which was very different from the usual moon.

Later, people in Kaohsiung and Tainan also posted photos of the red moon they had taken.

The weird and rare “big red moon” immediately attracted the attention of netizens. Some people think that such a sight is caused by air pollution, and some people think that the red moon is “extremely beautiful”, but many people worry about whether it is a harbinger before the disaster ? 

“Hope is not a harbinger of disaster~”, “A harbinger of disaster in 2021???”, “It looked uneasy”, “After seeing the red moon, I hope everyone will be safe”.

Some netizens worry that this is a pre- earthquake omen.

“Remember the red moon before the 921 earthquake (omen)”, “earthquake precursors”, “I feel that there will be an earthquake again recently”, and “It seems that 2021 will be another year of bloody disaster.”

The British clairvoyant Craig Hamilton-Parker published his prediction for 2021 on YouTube in December last year, stating that, as far as the world is concerned, 2021 will be a year full of social unrest, armed conflict and political changes. There will be difficult times right now until 2025.

He also predicted that the biggest worry is climate and earthquakes. A tsunami will occur near Japan. Large earthquakes will occur in the Himalayas, Iran and the Americas. There will also be problems such as floods, dams bursting, and huge icebergs obstructing shipping. Until 2025, the severity of environmental problems will gradually increase.
