Top 15 Deaths Caused By The Paranormal

Top 15 Deaths Caused By The Paranormal

August 18, 2019 100 By William Hollis


#15 Our list about the Top 15 Deaths Caused by
the Paranormal begins in October of 2009. On that day, Bobby and Sherilyn Jamison disappeared,
including their six-year-old daughter. In 2013, a hunter accidentally found their remains
on Panola Mountain. Their bodies were lying side-by-side, with faces down in the dirt.
The results of the later autopsy are still ‘inconclusive’ to this very day, and the
mystery associated with this case is still not diminished. In fact, this family’s disappearances
and tragic deaths are considered by many people to be one of the most bizarre paranormal murder
mysteries. Prior to the disappearance, Sherilyn Jamison had claimed on several occasions that
the spirits of long-dead family members lived in their home and, what’s even more disturbing,
their daughter Madyson “communicated” frequently with some of the youngest spirits
of this family. Bobby Jamison had talked with his pastor – who, it should be emphasized,
suddenly moved out of the area and declined to speak to anyone about the case – about
making ‘special bullets’ and obtaining a ‘satanic Bible’ that could be used to
exorcise the house of the evil spirits. Are they responsible for this family’s tragic
death? We’ll never know, for sure. #14 Robert Francis Baily, George I. Mott, John
Irving Bentley, Henry Thomas, and Mary Reeser are only some of the well-known, who can be
associated directly or indirectly with the so-called spontaneous human combustion paranormal
cases. Most of these SHC cases are explained by using the popular wicker theory. This “theory”
states that once our body is being ignited it will continue burning until the flame’s
initial “source” (such as flesh, fat, or muscle) is eliminated, this way or another.
For instance, in one of the most notorious cases Henry Thomas literally burned to death
while sitting in his chair watching TV. Only his skull remained. Yet, there were some claims
that his death was probably caused by a “wicker effect” associated with a nearby heater.
There’s only one “trivial” problem with this “theory”. The rest of Thomas’ home
and furniture remained untouched by the fire. In addition, Thomas himself didn’t even
try to move from his chair while slowly burning to death. The fire quickly burned out this
poor man completely just as quickly as it had disappeared after killing him. #13 On February 2013, Elisa Lam had been staying
in the notorious LA Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles. She suddenly went missing for three weeks.
In the matter of weeks, the hotel guests began complaining about a strange taste in the water.
Can you guess what they found in the water? Elisa Lam was found dead and naked inside
a hotel’s water tank. According to the official autopsy report her death was “accidental
due to drowning”. However, her blood was clear from any traces of drugs or alcohol.
The most troubling thing about her death is a striking similarity with a famous 2005 Horror
Movie called the Dark Water. There are quite a few rumors about the unexplained deaths
in Cecil Hotel. It turns out that this was a “popular” hotel for suicide victims.
Did one of them whisper something to Elisa’s ear near the water tank? #12 How about a paranormal death mystery surrounding
a ghost-hunting couple in Nevada? Yes, you heard it right. A pair of paranormal researchers
had lost their lives under the mysterious circumstances. Debra and Mark Constantino
had a few appearances on the Travel Channel’s series, called the “Ghost Adventures”. Yet,
they were found dead, with no acceptable explanation for their actions, which lead to violent deaths.
Later it was determined that Debra Constantino went missing before this tragic incident.
It’s very intriguing that the police were in a hurry to offer an official explanation
that her husband had a problematic history of domestic violence. They also added that
they were in the process of getting divorced. Nevertheless, there are so many people, who
believe that one of the couple’s previous paranormal cases had to do with their tragedy.
Again, there were no clear evidences to support this theory. Which one is more credible, we
leave it up to you to decide. #11 Charles Walton was an ordinary guy living
in the small village in Warwickshire, England. Yet, his death was quite extraordinary. He
was found murdered on valentine’s night, February 14 1945. The circumstances surrounding
his death are at least to say mysterious. They’re actually so strange and mysterious
that to this very day the inhabitants of the Quintons believe that phantom black dogs haunt
the area as the notorious harbingers of death in this area. It is also believed that, soon
after Walton’s shocking murder, one of these black dogs was found next to a tree close
to the murder scene. In addition, even the chief police investigator himself admitted
that he encountered this notorious black dog while walking outside. The dog suddenly ran
past him and shortly afterwards he saw a local boy walking in his direction. He asked this
boy if he was maybe looking for his dog. However, when he mentioned the dog’s color, the boy
suddenly turned a deathly pale and immediately fled in the opposite direction without a single
word. #10 A couple in Talisay, Philippines approached
the authorities and investigators with the scary accusations that a “paranormal creature”
was responsible for the death of their newborn child. What’s even more scarier in this
paranormal-related death story is a fact that the kid’s grandparents began noticing strange
red marks scattered all over the floor of their house. They even tried to attribute
this disturbing discovery to rats, until they began finding blood stains in the kitchen.
As a result of one panicked phone call, the mother rushed home only to find her baby in
the hard to describe situation. The child was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
The family repeated on more than one occasion that a “shapeshifting” and paranormal
creature is to blame for the tragic kid’s death. This was a conclusion that even the
skeptical neighbors had to reach after noticing blood on the roof. On the other side, as expected
the police refused to believe the couple’s story about the paranormal involvement. Yet,
they had to admit that they didn’t have a clue what could be the cause of the kid’s
death. #09 In our next disturbing story about paranormal
deaths a 4-year-old boy was found dead in the Amityville apartment, he used to share
with his 6-year-old sister. The police received a 911 call and found the kid in the living
room with visible wounds all over his body. The autopsy was performed promptly, but police
couldn’t find obvious signs of torture or trauma. What’s even more interesting to
point out is that no adults were home when the first police officers arrived at the spot.
In addition, the police went silent on the simple fact, who allegedly called 911. In
case, the word “Amityville” sounds so frightening and familiar to you, it was the same town
where more than 40 years ago the Lutz family went through terrifying paranormal activity
in their own home. This notorious house was previously purchased from Ronald DeFeo, Jr.,
who committed a horrible crime by shooting and killing six members of his own family
in the same neighborhood where a 4-year-old boy was found dead. These tragic events inspired
a series of novels and movies well-known as The Amityville Horror. #08 In July of 2002, the dismembered torso of
a women was washed up in the San Francisco Bay. This tragic event took place approximately
two months after the nine-months-pregnant woman and her five-year old son had gone missing.
This murder was especially gruesome, because the woman’s torso had had her fetus cut
out before it was eventually discarded in the water. As you might’ve expected the
numerous theories spread wildly. Many believed that this woman had been killed on Satanic
holy days as a part of the ritual killings by a Devil-worshipping cult. Of course, that
disturbing theory couldn’t be supported by the substantial evidences, but also neither
completely discarded, as well. #07 In June 1999, the dead body of Ricky McCormick
was located in a rural area outside St. Louis without an unclear cause of death. A violent
cause of death was considered, although McCormick had a previous medical record of chronic lung
and heart issues. Therefore, the natural causes of death just couldn’t be excluded. This
41-year-old high school dropout was quickly written off as an unsolved police case statistic.
Yet, the two handwritten notes were discovered in McCormick’s pockets. It turns out that
these docs were actually the most intriguing part of the mystery itself. Decoding them
became one of the top-priority cases for the FBI’s Unit in charge for trying to break the
Zodiac killer’s code. And what were the final conclusions? Well, we’re still waiting for
some. It’s easy to say that this guy was probably nuts. However, “his” notes raised
quite a few eyebrows among the police officers. In addition, according to victim’s family,
he actually had a very low IQ. In other words, he was practically illiterate. Experts who
had conducted a serious study of the mysterious paper, just couldn’t explain them. There
were some theories about a specific pattern, which can be found in the numbers and letters,
as a clear indication of some other paranormal entity’s presence. Maybe, McCormick was
only the “messenger”, but we still can’t read his “message”. #06 In April 1991, Seattle police had to use force
to enter into the apartment of Christopher Case. Why? Well, one of his friends was dead
worried about him. The next thing you know, it turned out friend’s concerns were justified,
and Case was eventually found dead in his bathtub. The death scene was unusual, at least
to say, because Case was clothed and the bathtub was apparently empty. In addition, there were
no signs of violence or a break-in entrance. Therefore, the coroner had no other choice
than to conclude that Case’s death was very likely caused by the acute myocarditis. In
other words, his heart stopped, but we don’t have a clue why. When police contacted Case’s
friend, they were informed that during his trip to San Francisco, Case met a mysterious
woman, who was claiming to be a witch with strong romantic feelings for him. Very soon,
he returned home, the man claimed that unexplainable and unseen forces began tormenting him by
cutting his fingers and other similar unpleasant things while he slept. As a direct result,
he soon began feeling unsafe in his own apartment. Of course, no evidences were ever to be found
to support Case’s mysterious stories. It’s reasonable to believe that you might’ve
assumed the poor guy suffered from some sort of deadly mental breakdown. However, that
doesn’t change the simple fact that the “victim” was, by all accounts, a respectably healthy
35-year-old guy, who didn’t smoke, or drink, not to mention drugs, these also include no
history of previous heart troubles. How do you explain this? What happened to this witch
in love, who obviously just couldn’t accept “no” for an answer? #05 The famous Brothers Grimm’s version of “Snow
White” tells a well-known story about the evil queen, who’s being forced to dance
in her red-hot shoes until she eventually drops dead. Yet, our paranormal death case
#5 gave a completely new meaning to this fictional story. It turns out that not only fictional
characters are the ones to die, because of restless dancing. The quiet and peaceful city
of Strasbourg became the victim of a sudden and unexplainable epidemic of compulsive dancing
on a mass scale during the summer of 1518. The locals were obviously fueled by supernatural
beliefs. However, this doesn’t change the fact of the deadly “Dancing Plague” in
1518, which affected more than 400 people. All of these people just couldn’t resist
the mysterious and overwhelming desire to dance restlessly, until some of them died
as a result of complete exhaustion. As you might’ve guessed this legendary story sparked
quite a few theories about the evil spirits, who wanted to punish this city in the worst
possible way. Why? We still don’t know. #04 Here’s a story about the village, which
was living in fear of a notorious “Widow Ghost”, who’s to be blamed for deaths
of at least dozens of men. Desperate locals had to hire a professional spirit medium to
pay a visit to the village of Tha Sawang near Bangkok, in order to investigate the mysterious
death of perfectly “strong and healthy men”. He eventually reached the conclusion that
they were all victims of the terrifying “Widow Ghost”, who’s an extremely vengeful spirit
in a constant search for more blood. In addition, he warned that all homes face risks with a
higher chance of an deadly visit from the angry spirit. His solution was to fight the
killing ghosts, which involves hanging out a red shirt in front of the home. This is
a gesture, which is believed to repel evil. The “Widow Ghost” made the villagers turn
their village into a place of countless red shirts outside their homes for ghost protection.
On the other side, the authorities were desperate to prove that this surprising and chocking
number of deaths can be associated with the political turmoil in this part of the world.
However, the people weren’t convinced at all. Almost all of the men, who died, did
not manifest any signs of sickness. Additionally, they were all perfectly fine. Do we need to
mention that these victims weren’t particularly politically active? #03 The #3 position on our list is reserved for
a story about a ghost hunter, who stabs himself to the death in the chest while staying for
a night at ax murder’s house, where six kids and two adults were murdered in 1912.
Robert Laursen, a 37-year-old, stabbed himself to the death for no obvious reason at the
Villisca Ax Murder House, which is a tourist attraction in Villisca, Iowa. Local authorities
just could not find a credible motive to his actions. The Ax Murder House is where eight
victims were murdered in their sleep by an ax-wielding psychopathic killer, who was never
found or caught. According to the same authorities, Laursen was conducting a ‘paranormal investigation’
when he suddenly stabbed himself with an “unknown” object. #02 The story of the killing ghost, is one that
works against the convention of the friendly spirits, who are incapable of harming those
around them. This story has embroiled itself in the folklore and myths of Kentucky. It
tells a story of a man called Carl Pruitt, who strangled his wife and then killed himself,
because he was driven insane by the feeling of guilt. For the police this was a clear
case of murder and then a suicide. That’s why they quickly closed the case. But our
story didn’t end there. As Pruitt was buried, people began noticing on his tombstone several
links of chain forming a cross. As Pruitt’s grave got its unusual markings, so did a reputation
grow about it, as a cursed place. One day a group of local teenagers threw rocks at
Pruitt’s grave while trying to destroy it, or at least to damage it. It’s said that one
boy, by the name of James Collins succeeded in damaging the tombstone. Then, he biked
home with the other boys, but suddenly his bike picked up speed with no reason and he
was killed in a fatal bike accident. What was the cause of death? Officially, his bike
chain had become entangled around boy’s neck killing him instantly as a direct consequence.
The boy’s mother was so devastated that she tried to destroy the tombstone. The very next
day she was found hung. According to the legend by some material that was used to make chains.
A couple of police officers visited the tombstone and made a few pictures. Afterward they were
allegedly followed and chased by some bright light that caused their car to crash. One
of these officers was fatally wounded. Finally, one desperate man, who claimed that this was
a ridiculous legend, took a sledgehammer and smashed the tombstone to pieces. However,
when the locals went to investigate and look for that man, they found him hanged by a chain
link fence, obviously strangled. #01 This video footage of a scary doll has intrigued
paranormal enthusiasts all over the world. Why? It reportedly caused one British woman
to suffer a fatal heart attack. Paranormal investigator Jayne Harris, located in Shrewsbury,
Shropshire, said she got quite a few messages from numerous people describing severe chest
pains, nausea and devastating headaches after viewing photos or videos of the notorious
doll Peggy, which is believed to be possessed with an extremely evil spirit. Some reported
strange flashing visions and overwhelming unexplainable feelings of anxiety associated
with it. One thing is certain, we certainly don’t want Peggy to make friends with Annabelle,
do we?
