Over the past half-century ghost originally lived only in ancient castles and mansions in Europe , and quite successfully mastered the modern home of the New World . However, they often wander through the rooms of houses and yards estates in the open, in broad daylight , bringing a lot of trouble and anxiety to many Americans . Here is one such story .
In 1964, one of Hollywood movie stars, the actress Elke Sommer German descent and her husband, writer Joe Hayems, purchased a luxury home near Los Angeles. Shortly after the purchase of the couple realized that, apart from them, live in a new home and even ghosts. First, it found the guests at their friend, a German journalist, when sunbathing by the pool, she saw near the house suddenly appeared “out of nowhere” a strange man in his fifties, under two meters tall, athletic, dressed in an elegant black suit and white shirt with a tie . The guests informed the owners that she had seen in the yard of the strange visitor and described his appearance. Those surprised and somewhat alarmed , because none of their friends did not fit that description.
Two weeks passed , and a gentleman in a black suit appeared again . At this time, in the early morning I saw him from the window of his bedroom his mother an actress. An elderly woman was frightened and was ready to scream and call for help , when suddenly uninvited guest disappeared.
Mysterious night scene
However, the two cases were the only the beginning of problems faced by the couple in their fashionable manor. Soon the night in the house were heard strange, loud sounds pretty – some noises, squeaks, and sometimes it seemed that the night in the dining room somebody moves the chairs standing around the dining table.
Firstly Joe Hayems believed that all these sounds are caused by natural causes, such as the rustle of leaves and branches creaked excessively overgrown trees and shrubs in the garden. Trees and bushes trimmed, but the strange sounds heard at night still. After that, every night before going to bed , Joe walked around the whole house , check whether latches are closed on the windows and all the doors are locked there . However, the next morning on the same window of the first floor latches are regularly found themselves raised . Soon, the same sounds were added new ones. Now the servants and the owners often have heard several times during the night in the house opened and closed the front door , but every morning checking again that evening the door remained firmly locked from the inside.
In the end , all these strange events as “get” Hayems that he found in the house a kind of tracking system, consisting of microphones , transmitters and receivers. However, the tranquility of the night to find the violators of these events have not helped.
In spring 1965 the couple went on vacation in Europe, leaving the house in the care of his friend. Since the beginning of his “government” mysterious accidents in the home has increased. So, every morning, he found the front door wide open , no matter how carefully locked it the night before. One day in August in broad daylight gardener saw through the window in the dining room that is haunting the same subject in a black suit. Deciding that it is a robber , a gardener was about to raise the alarm , but the “guest” directly in front of him literally melted in the air.
What experts revealed
After returning from Europe, Hayems understood that the number and variety of unexplained accidents in the home continues to grow, and decided to seek the advice and assistance in the Southern California Society for the Study of paranormal phenomena. They listened carefully agitated and confused by Hayems’s story and asked to deal with what is happening in his home, Dr. Thelma Moss, a psychologist from the Neuropsychological Institute at the University of California in Los Angeles. Thelma invited to take part in the investigation of the two reputable local psychics, Lotte van Strahl and Brenda Krenshou, and soon they all went to the estate Hayemsa.
Psychics immediately felt the presence of ghosts, and even managed to describe the appearance of the most important of them. Description coincided with the appearance of “dark type in black,” as he dubbed servants, which, along with the owners of the house, has also repeatedly seen this person. And as psychics in advance, nothing was known about the nature of what was happening in the house, Thelma felt this coincidence is very significant sign. In addition, the psychics said that at one time the “original” ghost people aged 50-55 years old, died of a heart attack. During his lifetime he was directly involved in this house, and for some reason did not want to (or could not) leave.
After receiving this information, Hayems tried to find out who were the previous owners of the house, how they lived and how it evolved their fate. Information that managed to get were quite scarce, but it turned out that all the people living here are also constantly tested as one of them said, “some discomfort from the intervention of supernatural forces” in their daily lives. However, this does not scare Hayemsa.
– Whoever these ghosts, and that they have nothing to get up – he said in an interview with journalists of the newspaper Saturday Evening Post, – they can not intimidate us into leaving our home.
Sell the house wives and failed : it destroyed a fire suddenly broke out
However, further developments still forced Joe Hayemsa family decide to sell the house.
After the group Thelma Moss finished the survey of the estate , Elke Sommer suggested to her husband even invite any expert on anomalous phenomena, and to hear his opinion about what or who prevents them live in peace . Joe agreed. The choice fell on the couple Jacqueline Wachtel, who was known in these parts as an experienced psychic and also reputed to be clairvoyant .
Jacqueline arrived in the spring of 1966, examined the house and told the owners about the same as that of Thelma Moss and colleagues , but added :
– I see that in your dining room next year a fire could break out . Be careful.
After much deliberation, the couple in 1967, decided to sell the house , but to do it in time do not have time . Shortly before the completion of the transaction , one night , dining room suddenly burst into flames . Fortunately, there were no casualties , but save the house failed. Cause of the fire , as well as why the house hosted a ghost forever remain a mystery.
