Official reports seem to back up the story of a woman in Indiana who claims her children were possessed.
The strange series of events took place at the home of Latoya Ammons two years ago and has since attracted the attention of psychologists, medical experts and even the police.
In one report, medical personnel were said to have witnessed one of the family’s young children making peculiar growling noises and being thrown against a wall by an unseen force. In another, psychologists claimed to have observed the family’s youngest child “walking up the wall backwards” and heard him speaking in strange, deep voices.
“He had the weird grin on his face and began to walk backwards while the grandmother was holding his hand and he walked up the wall backwards while holding the grandmother’s hand and he never let go,” the report stated. “He flipped over and landed on his feet in front of the grandmother and sat down in the chair.”
The legitimacy of the case has even been corroborated by Police Captain Charles Austin who, having conducted interviews with Ammons, has stated that he believes the reports to be genuine.
The incidents were believed to have only come to an end after authorities took the decision to remove the children from the house and the hospital chaplain had called on Rev Mike Maginot to perform an exorcism on both them and their mother.
“Whenever you would praise God in Latin, no reaction,” he said. “But you start condemning the demon, condemning the evil spirit, all of a sudden she the child is reacting to that.”
