People magazine recently reported on a haunting in Michigan. Here's the story:
Michigan Couple Says They Caught a Ghost on Nanny Cam After Finding Scratches on Baby's Face
A Michigan couple is looking for a new home after
they say they captured nanny cam footage of a ghost in their 1-year-old
daughter’s room and mysterious scratches on the her face.
Joshua Higgins, 30, and Heather
Brough, 25, said they believe their Highland, Michigan, home is haunted
after they saw footage of what they believed to be a ghostly figure
wandering around their daughter, Lily Higgins’ crib. In the video, Lily
suddenly stands up and looks around as the figure appears to walk across
one side of the room.
“It was chilling,” Higgins told WXYZ. “It was literally a chill down your spine. Like that ‘what if’ factor — Is this what I just saw?’ “
The couple decided to check the
footage after they found unexplained scratches on Lily’s face. Brough
said she had just woke Lily from a nap when she spotted the deep “purple
scratches” on the baby’s cheek.
“Seeing Lily’s face with the scratches was so bizarre and frightening,”
Brough said. “I was crying, ‘What happened to you?’ I grabbed her jacket
and ran over to my mother-in-law’s house. Nobody knew what happened. We
wondered if she’d scratched herself, but when we put her hands up to
the scratches it did not match up.”
This is not the first strange occurrence at the home, though. Brough
said she has heard an “angry male voice” screaming and laughing. She
recalled at least once hearing footsteps up and down the stairs as she
took a shower.
“It scares us that it could do
something else,” Brough told WXYZ. “I mean, there was a morning I woke
up and I felt like someone’s hands were around my neck.”
Brough and Higgins live in a guest house owned by Higgins’ mother,
Kris. Kris, who lives in the main house nearby, said an investigator has
determined there is paranormal activity in her home — but she said she
doesn’t know what could have caused the incidents in the guest home.
“I was told when we bought the
houses 11 years ago the lady who owned the property died in the main
house. It’s an old farmhouse and according to her niece … she fell down
the stairs, broke her hips and laid there for a very long time before
she passed away,” Kris said.
However, Higgins’ father, Jim Higgins, told WXYZ that a man who lived
at the home originally died after jumping out of a window. Although t
is unclear who may be haunting the home, the couple said one thing is
certain: they’re moving out.
“This has made us want to leave as
soon as possible. As soon as possible we’re out of here,” Brough said.
“This is a spirit. I don’t know what its intentions are, but at this
point it’s becoming physically harmful.”
“She said that the guesthouse was built for the lady’s brother who was schizophrenic.”
