Terrified family flees home due to paranormal phenomena

Was someone or something else living there too ? Image Credit:
Lauren Roth and her family were ultimately forced to flee after the activity at their home left them traumatized.
Roth, who moved into the rented property in Teeside, England with her husband and two children last November, quickly became suspicious that something was amiss.

In addition to witnessing lights turning on and off by themselves, she kept developing unexplained bruises and her son would keep waking up screaming in the middle of the night.

He would also act as though there was someone else in the room with him.

"It got to the point where my son was talking to somebody," said Lauren. "They used to sleep all night with no problems at all. My son would wake up and he'd stand at the top of the stairs staring."

"Things were getting moved around the house, and thrown down the stairs."
"We'd seen something during the night."

Things went from bad to worse when she began experiencing feelings of being choked by an unseen assailant and her daughter started to develop unexplained scratch marks.

The last straw came in June of this year when her son went to bed one evening and started screaming "get off me" and "leave me alone" as though he was being attacked by something invisible.

The family ended up living in a caravan in their neighbor's drive while they looked for a new home.

"You see it in movies but you don't think it's going to happen to you," said Lauren.

"We've literally had to get up and move. We had no other choice."

They claim to have been living with this for roughly seven months yet have no evidence other than I picture of bruising.   And yes, a family will feed off each other's paranoia. All it takes is someone to plant the seed, and you'll have the entire family attributing everything that happens to the paranormal.

That's pretty well what I said. What other evidence would there be, a paranormal entity in a jar? lol.

Well a video of the lights turning on and off would be a start or things being thrown down the stairs.

And even if presented with that, it would be explained as mundane, although not proven to be.

Nothing really and we don't know if they are truthful. I feel for them if they are genuine.

I dont have to prove a charlatans claims they have to prove themselves or be all buttchapped all they got is a bs story.   And i dont care since like all these type claims all they have is a story it shouldnt matter what i think but it always does. This is very common some people are eady to lead into believing anothers make believe and delusions. If under correct controlled conditions we do have lots of such videos on youtube but they are worthless because they have no control a ball rolling down stairs a light turning off even if on video doesnt make the source paranormal. Never once has pa... [More]

It could be bs but you really don't know that.   Well why comment on it?   You are such a caring soul, lol.

Until proven it is a story if a false story its BS and in this case i think it is BS but if they prove to me a spooky was to blame ill admit i was wrong. I comment on things here mostly out of bordom and burning off nervious engery i worked a hard weekend so exhausted and have to get the stupid car to tge stupid dealer soon. I do care about some things very much and some stuff not so much, im rather cynical and jaded and get more so daily.

I personally don't care if they were dragged through the gates of hell but that's another story.
