New Orleans Louisiana a city with a rich
and eccentric history but for Karla Vaes and her family moving
to New Orleans was like coming home again my name is Karla vase I live in a
hundred and eighty year old home in New Orleans Louisiana with my sister Krista
my son Joe my daughter Alexis and our five dogs
there’s bees you chaos canto Ruby and max carla has always watched out for
everybody if we got in trouble we would never call her mom we’d call her sister
family is everything my mom she’s the matriarch in the rock of the family for
a reason I’ve always wanted to move to New
Orleans I remember a coming year as a child with my grandfather
it felt magic and it still feels that way to me before I moved to New Orleans
my husband died the kids had moved out and then Katrina yet Catrina change things for us and put
things in perspective no long really wanted to keep this close
after that just like a something like that happened again you know my whole
goal after I was widowed was to create the safe haven to protect all of us when we first pulled up to the house it
was absolutely amazing it was massive it needed a lot of work everything had
to be redone electrical plumbing but it was a beautiful very old grand
house when I stepped inside the front door it
took my breath away it appeared that it belonged to somebody really eccentric
walking from room to room it was just weird kind of decorations
there were these naked women pillars all along the foyer and blank canvases
everywhere in the living room there’s a beautiful
old mirror but it was painted over and it was covered with the sheet I thought
it was kind of strange that anybody would want to cover that because it was
absolutely lovely in the servants quarters there were some really bizarre
Egyptian paintings on the entire back wall it’s like a big orgy and there’s
people being squashed you just kind of freaky I didn’t think anything else
about it I really didn’t care who lived there before that’s New Orleans there’s
a million different kinds of people I could look past all of that because it
was perfect for what we need it it just needed some work she put in an offer and
ended up getting it for way less than she should have we got the keys we were all excited we’re all exploring and looking around
and I walk to the second floor and I see clothes on the bed and personal
possessions still in the room I was definitely clear somebody was still in
the house it was probably a couple hours after we came and I heard a knock into
one it was the caretaker was living in the
house he looked a little off he said he would get his stuff together and be out
as soon as he could he asked me if I planned on redoing my house I told him
everything’s getting gutted he wasn’t happy about it that’s when he said let
me explain something about our work that’s in the background they explained
to me that they were protection symbols and they really should remain in the
house it was pretty adamant about leaving that stuff that I took
comfortable with that crappy animal batter on a couple of things on the wall
just kind of made a joke out of it we’ve not seen the caretaker since that
day as soon as we started ripping things out
the dog started acting strange bees you started trying to leave the house we’d
put her down on the floor and she had for the street every single time Mac
started crying at the floor he destroyed my floors he never done anything like
that before ever chaos initially was loving it
but when we started to renovate the kitchen floor when the dirt became
exposed her whole demeanor changed she was stare at these voids and growl
sometimes all night long like she was waiting for something to come up that
hole just about for house it is crazy never say no crap like that for when chaos started doing that the whole
feeling of the house changed everybody heard knocking
footsteps doors closing we’d all look around the room and you
know with our eyes say did you hear that the start of having really vivid
horrible dreams in the dream and everything’s in slow motion everything
is dark and quiet and there’s the mist it’s like the New Orleans fog I would
dream about things that had passed on my husband everything that was important to
me that had died in my life I would wake up in a cold sweat I would cry it was
horrible I talked to Lexus about it
it sent shivers down my spine because I had been having the same dreams there
every night they’re intense and I haven’t said anything about it and she’s
having the same experiences something’s got to be up we felt like they were
being forced upon us when we was pulling up the floor and in
Mom’s room to replace all the floor Jewish we noticed our big red spot they had already gotten several of the
floorboards up so you can see the stain underneath nasty what do you think this
is please don’t tell me it is what I think you noticed our big red spot on the
floor please don’t tell me it is what I think it is I knew what it was
immediately it was an old puddle of blood I considered maybe having DNA testing
done or something on it but I didn’t want to start construction and whatever
was there happened a really long time ago
so we did nothing she’s covered up so we covered it up one night I went to bed Matt came up and
slept by me at some point he woke me up out of a
sound sleep and he’s snarling and growling and he was following something he’s growling at the corner and clearly
there’s nothing in the corner and then I grabbed my cell phone I got it on video
so people could see actually see what I was experiencing I mean Jake was sitting in my living
room on the couch it was pitch black outside no noise just a quiet night and
I got a weight set in my room we’re just sitting there and then you just heard this roll all of a sudden we heard the dumbbell
rolling across the floor we look at each other wide eyes and we
look again there oh go back to exactly where it was gave it a really eerie feeling when I
say that there and when they standing up my floor is pretty level her that
dumbbell to roll as far as it did and rolled back out just I can’t explain it
something’s there it’s not something I really like to think about it really rocked his world he found it
really disturbing there was no doubt in my mind that something was trying to
communicate in that house I don’t really have a lot of the history of the house I
never met anybody that about the house from the house belonged to an LLC that’s
all I know I talked to the neighbors about the previous owners but they were
kind of anti-social nobody really communicated with them so
nobody had a lot of information Karla told me about the scary things
about the house I’m not a true believer and all that kind of stuff I believe
there’s always a logical explanation Chris was kind of want to see it for
myself kind of attitude so she was definitely
not buying it at first one morning I was by myself in the house I’m sitting at my
kitchen counter paying bills and I heard this huge crash I knew something had
fallen I got up and went the dining room ban the mirror was shattered all over
the floor and then I hear another crash boom
upstairs I run up the stairs and I can’t frickin believe it another mirror had
come down in the hall bathroom oh my god how did that happen and then I hear a
crash in my bedroom and I think oh crap I knew what I was gonna say the mirror
was shattered all over the floor it was a sickening kind of feeling in my
stomach that was horrifying what are the odds of that happening the
new moon when sequence like that that was not a coincidence they’re in storage
I don’t know myself there’s no way no no no way that the mayor could have fallen
on their own you try to rationalize it but it gets to the point where so many
things happen there just is no explanation she was just like why is this happening
I sat down and talked to her about it I told her and they broke deal with the
broken mirrors it’s nothing to get frightened about land Krista is one of
those people that demands proof she’s definitely the biggest skeptic of the
family when we started ripping into the kitchen the floors were too far gone so
we had to rip them all up was just the open dirt pit chaos would go into the
house and play and stuff like that one day we were working in the house I
noticed chaos is chewing on something I thought it was a big leather cute white
that had just got all muddy I looked down again and the things half gone
and I can see that it’s not a tutorial and it’s clearly a foul Kaos is chewing on something and I can
see that it was wrong I definitely got an idea that their bone
had a big part of what was going on in the house
maybe so he’s buried under there maybe it was a murder victim
you know just no way to tell at that point I’m wondering was it his blood
that we found in my bedroom I did call the police finally somebody did come she collected
the bone and she told me well be in contact we’ve never saw that bone again or heard
anything about that bone it was early evening
it was just getting dark outside I get out of bed and I’m heading toward the
big staircase that goes all the way down I’m just starting to take my first step
and I hear like somebody breathing on my neck and it was so strong it blew my
hair and it caught me off balance startled me and I fail when I landed and
I look back I saw nothing knocking this close to going all the way
down those stairs that would kill me I heard her scream and I went running in
and there she is on the stairs I asked her are you okay
she said no I think I hurt my leg I think it’s scared her my heart was
beating a mile a minute but my hands were shaking I never experienced
anything like that it was a different kind of fear I didn’t know what was
gonna happen next it was horrible it was terrifying I went from believing that it really
couldn’t hurt me – thinking the good yeah that’s just serving I was almost too much for her to handle
her strong demeanor was starting to deteriorate to see her crumble like that and it
really worried me it definitely makes things scarier to
see that the woman who has always held it together is not holding it together
anymore at that point in time I truly did not
believe in this crap I think she lost her footing fuck it out move on that’s what I
wouldn’t a few weeks later I’m laying in bed it’s
probably around nine ten o’clock at night I was reading in my room and had
all the dogs with me all of a sudden the dog started doing that low growl like
there’s something out there as I got out of bed my heart’s pounding
I opened the door and stepped out I’m walking down the steps and all of a
sudden two hands just shut tales of the haunted a few hours from New Orleans is the
Myrtle’s plantation a manner rich with history and legend one tale is of a
former owners wife who was poisoned by their slave for generations visitors to
the infamous mansion have heard phantom voices been physically pushed and have
even seen the ghost of a woman roaming the grounds this photograph is
supposedly evidence of the actual woman said to haunt the property I’m walking down the steps all of a
sudden two hands just shove me I fell forward and then I hit the marble like
this it hurts so bad I looked at and there was nothing on the staircase
that’s when it became real to me there was something in that house whatever was
in there was pissed off Crysta sitting in the kitchen and she is
really hurt her whole bottom lip won’t move and it’s starting to turn black I
had to go to the hospital she actually spent two nights there with a hairline
fracture I was kind of straw that broke the camel’s back it could have killed
her at that point I’m afraid for my family I’m afraid for my animals
my goal was to create the safe haven and instead I brought us into this
environment that there’s no protection from whatever is in there I don’t want
it there anymore now I have to fight and make it safe if I didn’t something
really bad was gonna happen my name is kalilas Smith I’m the founder
of the New Orleans paranormal occult Research Society
I’ve been working with the paranormal for over 15 years the family contacted me and indicated
that they were having a lot of strange things happen this case seemed to be a
lot more active than others that I have had in the past Carlo was having
nightmares there were mirrors breaking they’d actually found some bones
underneath the property people were getting pushed there clearly seemed to
be a malevolent presence in the home I recommended that they have a full-scale
investigation done in addition to my team we’re also
accompanied by Carl Johnson and Chris Fleming I specialized as a demonologist
I delve into the more serious cases where clients have actually been
assaulted I’m a paranormal investigator but I’m also a sensitive a sensitive is
somebody that can pick up frequencies or changes in the environment some of these
changes tend to be what we call conscious energy such as spirits and
ghosts as soon as I went in that house it was like BAM I definitely felt an
oppressive type feeling it’s like swimming through water we also had Ken
Arrington with us my name is Ken Arrington I’m a paranormal investigator
when I go into a case I’ll bring EMF detectors that pick up on natural AM
fields I also bring audio recorders and a video camera to see what’s going on
around me pets in the home can serve as beacons
for paranormal activity so we followed these dogs as they let us up the stairs they went up to the second floor and
their behavior had changed they started to whimper and cringe or speaking to the spirits here if you
want us to leave this place make your presence known lies
if you can make yourself known that way if chandelier started flickering on cue
in response to his questions that was phenomenal
the lights flickering was telling us that there there that they can affect
the environment the question is does it continue to happen if it does then it’s
something electrical it didn’t happen again after that we darkened the lights in the house we
remove the dogs and they went downstairs can you show yourself I know you’re up
here can you show herself I know you’re up
here did you hear that we heard a growl all of a sudden we get this growl everybody heard it and at first I’m like
well is that the dogs no all the dogs were downstairs and this
did not sound like the dogs it was not happy that we were pursuing
its presence this was a warning don’t proceed further it’s scary but I was
relieved that so many people heard it with me it’s extremely rare to get a
verbal response that everybody hears at that point I wondered if we were
addressing a demonic entity they can frequently manifest with the growling
sounds while we started walking back downstairs
from the second floor I feel like I was being suffocated as if a bunch of people
were piling on top of me I picked up on several spirits some which were very
angry this haunting is not a normal case by
any means we came to believe that we were addressing a community of spirits perhaps trapped inside the house depicted on one of the walls in that
room is an Egyptian motif the Sphinx that is trampling human men the overall
impression I perceived from this illustration is vanquish one’s enemies
protect the sect from outside influence there is something that occurred right
in this spot when I was in the room with the mural I felt like I was seeing
something I’m not supposed to see oh man I’m just getting total like a hatchet
laid out I got this flash of this long knife or hatchet cutting off flesh stuff just being cut Oh horrifying blood
everywhere I’m seeing candles
rose and I see what this image I was seeing was showing me
that the rituals went on in this room there was violence there was chanting
and there was blood in my long experience with paranormal research
rarely have I come across such strange goings-on my concern for the family had solidified
these people were experiencing a genuine threat I thought I am in this thing so
deep I am stuck I’ve worked so hard I spent so much money so much time I can’t leave
I don’t really have the option of selling my name is Ken he lives in the
name of about six years Carla asked what we knew who informed her that we had
heard a rumor that that religious order lives there they really led a very private life when they would have their functions
they all would come dressed in white on a couple of occasions we actually
noticed cages going in with covers over them and you could see animal feet at
the bottom there were neighbors that complained about animals being
sacrificed part of a ritual never there about a year the head guy had a heart
attack Katrina hit and then they moved on the information that I got from Kim
totally freaked me out you know I just thought it was bizarre do my research I discovered that the
religious order that was operating at the house was founded in 1968 the man that founded that religious
order was known as will do there’s something in the past of this
house that is causing some of these things and I think when the religious
order came to this home they tapped into it not intentionally I think doorways
were open that allowed energies to come into the home they would do invocations maybe even
coax the spirits to communicate with them through ritualistic animal
sacrifice about a quarter after two this device
sweeps radio frequencies that ghosts and spirits and manipulate the theory is
that they can communicate through these frequencies our plan was to see if we
could get any messages that we could make sense of we would all take turns
asking questions to see what spirit or who would respond and I felt it was important for Krista
to ask some questions because she had some things happen to her in the house
she’s been shoved communicate with me
I asked why are you in this house to our collective surprise we all heard
the name or do they clearly said Oh doom this more than
any other single element confirmed to me that we were dealing with a conscious
entity this was far too much to be mere coincidence at least now I knew what I was up
against gelila asked did you call for the spirit through the mirrors the voice
came through saying yes weight gave us the confirmation and realizing why most
of those spirits are there and how they got there
spirits were called into the property and no one put those spirits back it’s
basically like opening a door and then walking away many occult practitioners believe that
spirits can come and go through the portals provided by mirrors there’s a
connection with these mirrors for all breaking for a reason the spirits are
trying to leave and they can’t when the family moved in they found that some of
these mirrors had been painted black it is possible that the mirrors were
covered to keep the spirit presences within that house I was repulsed by the
when somebody passes you have absolutely no right to reach in and try to disturb
that spirit nothing can come from that but that something had to be done to put
not only the spirits to rest but also to give peace to the owner of the house the
only thing we could all think of was to do a ritual with the mirrors if the
spirits were invoked utilizing mirrors perhaps they could leave through the
mirrors when we effected the mirror procedure we utilize the three mirrors
Carl said a prayer the onus he’ll see us these three mirrors were picking up on
the reflections of each forming a triangle the spheres
bound to this house you know passage leave
there’s only shot of the barn kriste ask Carla to directly addressed
the spirits within the house Carla say just a few words this is your
house you live here now some of these skirts are bounder they’ve tried to get
out of this thing we’re stuck here we can’t get out now is their chance okay
so you need to say that since you have a relationship with them I spoke and I
told it I wasn’t going anywhere this is my home now I love this house
you don’t have to stay here this house belongs to me and my family I was
holding the one mirror I wanted to feel if they were passing through or not
give us a sign that you hear us you understand all of a sudden I could feel
the mirror shaking vibrate this thing’s exciting this that
technically the vibration or something there’s nothing to be afraid of go home
all of a sudden I could feel the mere shaking vibrate something’s swarthy I
felt some things passing through as if there was some certain shocks or
vibrations in the mirror for me that was confirmation that they were passing
through you may leave leave this house now then temperature lowered it got a little
cooler in the room after the circle was closed it felt peaceful I felt like
something had been accomplished at that point I really hope that the house blessing
worked and that the spirits are gone it’s not so tense anymore the dog’s
temperament have changed they’re happier they’re playful they’re acting like a
bunch of puppies it makes me feel like there’s hope that
we caught this in time to live peacefully in this house I have more of a belief in a paranormal
and I’m definitely not skeptical about any of it we’re not the same people that
we were and when we moved into the house it rocked our entire belief system
the house means a lot to us New Orleans means a lot to us
overall to take care of each other and live happy old lives and mouse
