"Ghost Adventures" host Zak Bagans recently bought an alleged haunted house in Gary, Indiana that many are referring to as a portal to Hell. It was recently reported that a local police captain and various psychics believe that the house is infested with hundreds of ghosts and demons. The Huffington Post reported today that Bagans purchased the house on Wednesday and paid $35,000 for the home.
The small house on Carolina Street, in Gary, Indiana has over 800 pages of official police reports of odd occurrences happening. In the photo, a strange figure can be seen peering out of one of the porch windows of the home. City officials claim that there were no inhabitants living in the home when the picture was taken. A police captain with the Gary Police Department says he believes that the home is haunted.
One family that lived in the home fled due to the supernatural events. Residents of the home have experienced their children levitating, strange footsteps, odd behavior from animals and insects. A family case manager and a family nurse even witnessed one of the children walking backward up a wall.
Psychics came and informed the last residents Latoya Ammons and her grandmother Rosa Campbell that the house was infested with over 200 ghosts and demons. According to the seers, the demons were attempting to possess Ammons' three children.
"The family said demons possessed Ammons' and her children, then ages 7, 9, and 12. The kids' eyes bulged, evil smiles crossed their faces, and their voices deepened every time it happened," one witness told the Indiana Star.
A police captain, several priests, and child service caseworkers believe that something evil lurks within the house. When the family moved, the paranormal activity seemed to have stopped. The house's new owners haven't reported anything strange happening.
"If it's true that this home is a portal to Hell, then I want to go there and see what happens," Bagans said in an interview with TMZ.
