The Hudson Valley UFO Incident

The Hudson Valley UFO Incident

In this article we will be covering the Hudson Valley UFO incident from December the 31st, 1981, which started with a retired policeman chilling out on his porch at night…


On The Porch

The policeman was sitting out on his porch just before midnight, getting some fresh air and enjoying the night sky…when suddenly he noticed a strange array of lights off to the south.

The lights travelled slowly towards his house and as they got nearer he noticed that they were selectively coloured as red, green and white. He realised that these lights probably indicated that he was looking at a plane…but it was flying awfully close to the ground.

As the lights got even closer, he realised that they were travelling too slow to be a plane, and whatever was in the sky was making no noise whatsoever – no rumble of thrust or engines.

As the lights passed over him he realised that a V-shaped fuselage was holding them together. The strange craft just passed silently over him, and carried on with it’s journey.

UFO On The Porch


The Reports

The ‘policeman’s report’ was the first of many – numerous others came forward to claim they had seen the same craft in the sky.

On March 261983, the Westchester-Rockland Daily Item released a front page story covering all of the UFO reports, and expert ufologists from all over the world started to pick up on the case, and offer their opinions.

One of these experts was named Dr. J. Allen Hynek, and he set up a specialised group and a hotline for people to come forward and give information on their experiences with the UFO.

The hotline eventually recorded over 300 witness statements that all confirmed that the craft was V-shaped.

On the night of March 24, 1983, the city of Yorktown also came alive with reports of this strange UFO activity. The local police stations had a terrible time trying to keep up with all the panicked reports they were receiving.

One of the main roads in the area was completely filled up with stalled cars, that refused to move as a UFO passed over the area.

There were over 5,000 Hudson Valley UFO sightings from the period of 1982 through 1986.

The UFO Reports


The Hudson Valley UFO Incident

The UFO from these sightings was always seen at night – none of the reports came from daylight hours. Also, many of the people that witnessed the craft pass over claimed that it was not one vessel, but more like a dozen smaller vessels making up one huge area in the sky.

There were also further reports that claimed that the ‘vessel’ slowed down when over bodies of water, then used some kind of red beam to scan the water’s surface – what were they looking for?

There were also a handful of reports insisting that the UFO took special notice of the Indian Point Nuclear Plant.

The Ghosts of the Baskerville Hall Hotel

The Ghosts of the Baskerville Hall Hotel

In this article we will be taking a look at the ghosts of The Baskerville Hall Hotel in Hay-on-Wye, Wales, that are actually said to have been the inspiration for the famous Arthur Conan Doyle book…


The Hound of The Baskervilles

Baskerville Hall in Hay-on-Wye is the source of Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Hound of The Baskervilles. He actually had to relocate The Baskervilles to the Cornwall area in order to protect the local people that were involved in the story.

The Baskervilles and the Vaughan families lived very close together, therefore, numerous marriages happened between their family members.

History informs us that the Vaughan family spent about a decade being terrorised by a black dog, and many believe that this incident was behind Doyle’s idea for the book.

However, locals point out that the book could well have been based on an incident that took place on the estate long before the Vaughan family lived in the area…

The Hound of The Baskervilles


The Useless Hound

Local legend states that a past master of Baskerville Hall brought in a large hound to tackle the wolf problem he was seeing on the estate.

One night the hound awoke from his slumber only to see a wolf in the distance, and he started barking and growling immediately. His master was alerted by the noise, and grabbed a spear and walked downstairs in the darkness.

He checked the garden area and failed to notice the wolf cowering in the darkness, then turned to his useless hound in anger – this was not the first time the dog had got him out of bed for no reason!

In his rage he stabbed the hound through the head with his spear…then noticed the wolf bolt off into the countryside…

The dog had been right after all.

Locals believe that this dog’s spirit has never really left the estate, and has been spotted on numerous occasions, prowling the garden areas looking for intruding animals.

past master of Baskerville Hall


The Wronged Dog

Many paranormal experts take the idea of this phantom dog with a pinch of salt, after all, Wales has it’s fair share of ‘the wronged dog’ legends.

But there are those that believe that this is a solid legend. If you look closely at the coat of arms of the Baskervilles, you will notice the head of a canine being pierced by a spear in it’s antique design.


The Ghosts of the Baskerville Hall Hotel

The ghostly hound of Baskerville Hall has plenty of paranormal entities to keep it company during it’s rounds…

Many visitors to the hall have reported bumping into an elegant gentleman on the grand staircase. There are also other reports of a gentleman ghost that tends to sit on the balconies of Rooms 3 to 7.

Some historians believe that these two ‘gentleman’ ghosts are linked to the lady in white that is sometimes spotted in the estate’s gardens.

The Black Knight Satellite Conspiracy

The Black Knight Satellite Conspiracy

In this article we will be taking a closer look at the famous Black Knight satellite conspiracy that has been attracting media attention since 1960. Is this satellite nothing more than a Russian attempt at signal jamming or spying?

Or is there something more sinister behind it?

Let’s take a closer look…


Did Tesla Discover the Signal?


Many conspiracy theorists firmly believe that Tesla was the first person to stumble across the strange space signal, back in 1899. At the time he had just developed a high-voltage, radio transmission setup.

Tesla claimed that the signal he discovered was clearly repeated periodically and had some sort of order to it’s broadcast.

He spent a few weeks studying this signal in detail and came to the conclusion that it was a message from a extraterrestrial group.

Tesla claimed that his in-depth studies show that the signal was coming from the planet of Mars…but this claim was quickly rubbished…by his own studies…when he came out and admitted that he got the Mars angle wrong!

Did Tesla Discover the Signal?


The Black Knight Satellite


A strange satellite was discovered in the late 1950’s in orbit around Earth. Initially the Russians were thought to have been behind the vessel, but before long it was determined that the satellite was neither Russian or American.

Experts looking into the vessel then claimed that it seemed way too heavy to have been launched from Earth, and it travelled at speeds much higher than a normal satellite could reach.

They also concluded that the schedule of the satellite was very mixed up – it didn’t seem to stick to a regular orbit pattern at any one time.

The Black Knight


Gordon Cooper


Mercury astronaut Gordon Cooper (1927-2004) eventually came out and claimed that he had picked up the strange satellite signal when he took part in the Mercury flight. He also claimed that his ground control contacts also picked up the strange signal.

Unfortunately Cooper went back on this statement not long after he made it, and signed off on transcripts claiming he was lying and he never heard any sort of signal on his flight.

Why did he go back on his word?

Was he forced into this action by authorities?


The Black Knight Satellite Conspiracy


In 1988 the astronaut team aboard the Space Shuttle Orbiter Endeavour actually managed to take a few photographs of the strange satellite in orbit.

Many ufologists got very excited over the images, but numerous sceptics came forward and claimed that the images were nothing more than a thermal blanket that had escaped it’s latching on the nearby International Space Station.

There are numerous articles online claiming that they have solved the mystery of the Black Knight – some even going as far as claiming the whole subject was/is nothing more than a hoax.

But the truth of the matter is that nobody really knows the answer to this strange space mystery.

The Lake Erie UFO Sightings

The Lake Erie UFO Sightings

This article will be covering the reports linked to the Lake Erie UFO sightings that were experienced on March the 4th, 1988, in the USA.


What The Baker Family Saw

The Baker’s were on there way home from a nice meal out on the 4th of March at around half past eight in the evening. Sheila and Henry Baker had decided to take their three kids out for a meal, and were then driving home along the waterfront of Lake Erie when Shelia noticed something on the water’s surface.

Henry slowed down the car and the family were shocked to see some sort of football shaped object rocking back and forth on the lake.

It hung above the water without making any sort of sound and strange lights shone out of it’s ‘tipped’ ends. The Baker family got out of the car to investigate further, but as they did, the object started to move along the water towards them!

They turned and ran screaming back to the car, jumped in, and drove off as fast as they could.

What The Baker Family Saw


Contacting the Authorities

When the Baker family arrived home they locked all the doors, and peered out of the main living room window. They could still see the strange UFO hovering on the water, but for some reason – it’s lights had changed colour to red and blue.

They decided to phone the police, but the police line unfortunately put them straight through to the coastguard.

Shelia began to explain the incident to the coastguard and suddenly gasped as she noticed the UFO disperse a number of smaller triangular vessels from it’s body. These triangles then began to hover and dart around the main UFO’s area.

Without warning, the triangular objects then began moving towards the nearby Perry nuclear power plant.

Contacting the Authorities


The Coastguard

The coastguard finally arrived in the form of Seaman James Power and Petty Officer John Knaub, they contacted the Baker family who then pointed out where the UFO was spotted.

The decided to get as close as they could to the UFO, and moved in. As they approached the strange vessel they noticed that the icy water’s surface was starting to crack every time the UFO got too close to it.

The coastguards looked worried, and the Baker family heard them radio in a message to their HQ explaining that they were witnessing something extraordinary.

Suddenly, one of the smaller triangular UFOs broke away from it’s fleet and started to dart around the coastguard’s boat. It seemed to spin as it travelled around the boat, as it investigated the vessel. After a minute or so, it then returned to it’s mother ship fleet.

A sudden noise was then followed by all the triangular objects re-entering the main UFO as it’s lights yet again changed colour. Within a blink of the eye – it then disappeared into the night sky.

All that remained was the cracked ice on the lake’s surface.

Reincarnation – The Bridey Murphy Recordings

Reincarnation - The Bridey Murphy Recordings

In this article we will be taking a look at the Bridey Murphy recordings taken by Morey Bernstein – was Virginia Tighe the reincarnated soul of an Irish woman from the 19th century?

Let’s take a closer look…


A Man Called Morey

Our report starts off with a young lady named Virginia Tighe, and her close friend named Morey Bernstein, who claimed to have possibly the most powerful hypnotic powers on the planet!

One day, both Bernstein and Tighe were pretty bored, so they decided to see if the hypnotist could put his friend ‘under’ with his powers. Tighe ended up being quite a good subject – and Bernstein managed to take her back to her early adulthood, to her adolescence, and to her childhood.

Before long Bernstein realised that Tighe was probably the most susceptible subject he had ever come across.

He decided that he’d attempt to push her a little further…to see if he could take her into a pre-birth state.


The Bridey Murphy Reincarnation Case

Bernstein started to push, and without warning, Tighe began to answer his questions in a thick Irish accent. His friend disappeared and a woman named Bridey Murphy began to shine through. Apparently she had been alive in 19th century Ireland.

The Bridey Murphy Reincarnation Case

After the session Bernstein informed Tighe about the transformation and she was pretty shocked – she had never been to Ireland and she was unable to fake the accent.

They both came to the decision that Tighe should be put under again, and they should document the whole process along the way. They conducted further hypnosis sessions and used the tapes and documents to build up a character profile of this Irish lady.


Cork in 1798

Their research under hypnosis revealed that Bridey Murphy was an Irish lady who was born in Cork in 1798. When she was just seventeen, she fell madly in love with a lawyer and they married in Belfast.

She had lived an uneventful life until her death in 1864.

She also told Bernstein that she had experienced elements of the afterlife, and was able to travel out of her dead body and attend her own funeral from a distance. She then claimed that the afterlife was “neither a place of sadness nor of happiness”.


The Media and Bridey Murphy

Something slipped, and it didn’t take long for the media to pounce on the case – Cork and Belfast were instantly taken over by an army of reporters looking for more information on Bridey Murphy.

Weeks went by and the media seemed to be struggling with the case – they could not uncover any official reports linked to Bridey Murphy ever existing.

The Media and Bridey Murphy

Bernstein’s case notes had indicated that Murphy had lived in a wooden house, but the searching media had soon discovered that all the houses in this area were made of stone during the period Bridey claimed to reside there.

Some of Bridey’s memories did fit local landmarks in the area, but all in all, the media did not believe in the story any longer.


The Bridey Murphy Recordings

The media had hit a brick wall with the Bridey Murphy recordings and documentation…so they began to look into the woman behind the regression herself – Virginia Tighe.

It didn’t take them long to discover that Tighe had lived opposite a Irish woman named Bridie Murphy Corkell when she was a child…so this case was obviously a hoax…or was it?

What do you think – fact or fiction?

Was this a possible case of reincarnation, or a clever trick?

Hollywood Sign Ghost Stories – The Lady in White

Hollywood Sign Ghost Stories - The Lady in White

This article will be covering one of the most famous Hollywood Sign ghost stories around – The Lady in White, thought to be the tragic spirit of Peg Entwistle.

Let’s take a closer look…


Peg Entwistle

Peg was born in 1908, in a town named Port Talbot in South Wales. Unfortunately her mother died when she was very young and this resulted in her grieving father dragging the family to a new life in the States.

Not long into their American adventure, Peg’s father met a new love and had two sons with her (Robert and Milton). Unfortunately tragedy was not finished with the Entwistle family, and Peg’s father was struck and killed by a car on Park Avenue.

Port Talbot in South Wales

The two young boys went to live with their uncle, but Peg turned down his offer because she wanted to find fame and fortune in New York.

At the tender age of 17, she managed to make a breakthrough and landed a job with the Boston Repertory Company. She then went on to work in the prestigious Theatre Guild productions of Broadway.


A Sham Marriage

Robert Keith stole Peg’s heart in 1927, within months they were married. Unfortunately Keith was a lot older than Peg, and she knew little about his past life.

Peg eventually found out that Keith had actually been married before and even had a 6 year old son, he never mentioned any of this before they tied the knot.

Peg decided that the marriage was a sham, and started divorce proceedings, but Keith managed to get into more trouble with the law. She put the divorce on hold when she bailed him out of prison…but started them back up again as soon as he was a free man.


The Breakthrough?

Peg managed to hit the stage in 1931 with Getting Married and Alice-Sit-by-The-Fire – two popular stage shows. Unfortunately by 1932 the work had dried up, and Peg started to sink into depression.

She was forced to move in with her uncle to make ends meet, and she then managed to pick up a stage part with with Billie Burke in The Mad Hopes.

Unfortunately this stage show only lasted a matter of months before closing down.

Peg’s luck then seemed to change when she landed a part in Thirteen Women starring Irene Dunne. Unfortunately the critics had a field day at the movie’s screening, and it ended up being re-edited.

Peg slipped further into depression…

Suicide on the Hollywood Sign


Suicide

On September 18, 1932, an alcohol-fuelled Peg left her uncle’s home, and headed to Mount Lee. Once there, she climbed the slope to the famous Hollywood sign.

She then left a suicide note with her coat, and climbed up the ladder that led to the top of the ‘H’ board…and threw herself off.

She was just 24 years of age.


The Hollywood Sign Ghost Lady in White

The spirit of Peg Entwistle has been spotted on numerous occasions since her tragic suicide. More often than not she is witnessed by hikers and rangers in the Griffin Park area.

The ghost resembles a young, attractive and blonde lady in white that walks sadly around the area in 1930’s clothing.

A famous encounter from 1990 came from a couple of young lovers taking their dog for a walk. Suddenly the animal started barking at a wooded area, and a sad looking lady in white walked out. The couple decided to follow the lady for some distance…before she disappeared into thin air!

The Hollywood Sign Ghost Lady in White

Griffith park ranger John Arbogast has made numerous reports of encounters with the ghost lady in white, always around the time of midnight when he’s on his shift. He believes that scent of gardenias follow her around, and indicate that she is about to make an appearance.

Poltergeist – The Tina Resch Case

Poltergeist - The Tina Resch Case

This article will be covering the rather tragic Tina Resch case, which started with the claims of a poltergeist haunting…and ended with the death of a child…

Let’s take a closer look…


Tina Resch

Tina did not really have the happiest of upbringings, at the age of just ten she was abandoned by her real mother and ended up being adopted by an incredibly strict family from Columbus, Ohio…

The Resch family.

The head of this twisted family, John and Joan Resch, were absolutely awful to Tina, and she endured many years of abuse from them living in their house…

Until something paranormal starting happening…


The Poltergeist

Around about the time of March, 1981, locals who knew the Resch family started spreading rumours involving Tina and poltergeist activity. It wasn’t long before the media picked up on this story.

When it hit the papers – investigator William Roll decided to look into the case.

Roll contacted the Resch family directly and they were more than happy to invite him to stay at their house, so he could witness the paranormal activity himself.

He wasn’t to be disappointed, on his first night in the household he witnessed all manner of furniture and kitchenware being thrown through the air by an invisible force. He also witnessed the TV coming on by itself, even though it wasn’t plugged in!

Tina Resch

Roll left the Resch household and told the world that the family was telling the truth – there was something paranormal within the house.

The media moved in and started interviewing Tina on a daily basis, but on one visit, the camera recording seemed to catch Tina pushing a lamp off a table and pretending it was a ghost – were the family behind an elaborate hoax?

When quizzed about this incident, Tina insisted that she was sick and tired of all the interviews, and pushed the lamp off the table so that the media would stop harassing her.

When Tina reached the end of her teenage years, the poltergeist seemed to tire of her…and eventually the paranormal activity stopped completely.

The media finally finished with Tina’s life…until 1992…


Tragedy

At the age of 18 Tina managed to get pregnant, and gave birth to a daughter she named Amber. When Amber was the tender age of 3, she was brutally murdered inside Tina’s home.

For some reason Tina was charged with the child’s murder…but she was not even in the house when it happened?

Tina’s boyfriend, David Herrin was supposed to be looking after Amber at the time of her death and he claimed he did not touch the child. After a number of days in the police interview room, Herrin cracked and admitted to sexually abusing the child on numerous occasions when she was alive.

He was immediately given 20 years in prison.

Tina faced the death penalty in court, even though she was nowhere near the child when it died. She tried her best to convince the jury…but in the end had to accept a plea bargain…just to stay alive.

Tina received a sentence of life in prison with an extra 20 years…she is still locked up today.

The Capuchin Catacombs Mummies

The Capuchin Catacombs Mummies

In this article we will be taking a look at the mysterious Capuchin Catacombs mummies, one of which is a rather famous corpse of a young girl that they nicknamed ‘Sleeping Beauty’…


The Most Beautiful Mummy in The World

The Capuchin Catacombs lie silently in Palermo, holding a diverse selection of mummified corpses…and the most beautiful mummy in the world.

Why does this mummy stand out above the others?

Why do people and paranormal experts find it so fascinating?

Well, this beautiful mummy of a little girl…sometimes feels the need to blink at whoever is looking at her!

Rosalia Lombardo


Rosalia Lombardo

When she was alive, the most beautiful mummy in the world was a little girl named Rosalia Lombardo. There’s not that much information on her life but what researchers can gather is that she died around the age of two, back in 1920.

There are rumours that she fell victim to pneumonia and never recovered.


The Master Craftsman

Rosalia Lombardo was apparently embalmed by Alfredo Salafia – a known master craftsman in his day. Many modern-day embalmers still insist that Salafia’s work is still better than anything they can manage with modern techniques.

capuchin catacombs italy

But how could this Italian craftsman have reached this level of expertise over a century ago?

Well rumour has it that he learned his trade by studying the ancient Egyptian techniques of mummifying, therefore he left all the organs untouched inside the dead bodies he was working on.


The Blinking Girl

Many people are drawn to the mummified corpse of this little girl due to her innocence and the beauty Salafia has managed to capture in his work…but she is also known to blink at certain visitors.

capuchin monks catacombs

The reports came through thick and fast, so the owners of the catacombs decided to set up a time lapse camera to see if they could catch this paranormal event.

They managed to catch her blinking – Through the camera frames they clearly witnessed the young girl’s beautiful blue eyes as she blinked.


The Capuchin Catacombs Mummies

There are numerous conspiracy theories linked to the blinking girl in the Capuchin Catacombs – most of them border on the side of the paranormal.

One interesting theory I read came from a man pointing out that the changing humidity in the Capuchin Catacombs was responsible for the eye movement in the girl’s mummy.

But, folklore in Palermo points to the fact that Rosalia’s spirit has been restless inside her mummified body now for nearly a century – the blinking is an indication that it want’s to get out and move onto heaven.

Joliet the Haunted Doll

Joliet the Haunted Doll

In this article we will be taking a look at Joliet the haunted doll – a so-called ‘cursed item’ that has remained in the protection of one family for over four generations…

But why do this family keep hold of this demonic item?

Let’s take a closer look…


Joliet the Doll

The doll is currently owned by a lady that goes by the name of Anna – we’re not 100% sure that is her real name or a pseudonym to stay anonymous in this case.

Anna claims that the doll has been in the possession of her family for over a century and it’s always carried the spooky ability to cry at night – sounding a lot like a baby that has just woken up.

Sometimes there is only one cry, other times there is a chorus of four different babies in distress.

Anna believes that the she knows the four souls that are trapped inside the doll’s body, because they are actually linked to her family tree. This close bond with the trapped spirits is the reason behind her wanting to keep the doll.


The Cursed Doll

This paranormal case seemed to have began when Anna’s great grandmother was given the doll when she was carrying her second child. It was a gift from a friend of the family that had a dark and hidden personality…and she really didn’t like Anna’s great grandmother.

Joliet the Doll

Anna now believes that this woman was so jealous and twisted inside, that a dark force was created from her which entered the doll.

The great grandmother eventually gave birth to a lovely little boy…who tragically died three days later from an unexplained illness…

This same tragedy would unfold for at least four generations.

From this point onward – every female member of Anna’s direct family tree would have two children, a boy and a girl. The male infant would always die just three days after it’s birth.

Anna’s great grandmother also insisted that her dead son had somehow entered the doll – she would break her heart listening to him crying through the doll in the depths of night. She could never get rid of the doll – because she firmly believed that it contained her dead son’s soul.

When she died she passed the doll onto her daughter (Anna’s grandmother) for safekeeping. This turned out to be another deadly move…

Anna’s grandmother had two children – male and female…and the boy died three days after birth.

Anna also lost her son, three days after he was born, and she believes his cries have been ‘added’ to the doll’s disturbing orchestra.


Joliet the Haunted Doll

Each mother in the family has refused to give up this paranormal doll – they all believe that it somehow contains a trace of their baby’s soul. The strange thing about this case is that the cries of the doll can only be heard by female members of Anna’s family.

Was Carole Compton a Witch?

Was Carole Compton a Witch?

In this article we will be taking a closer look at the case of Carole Compton and her employment as a nanny with two Italian families…who firmly believed that she was a witch who was bringing all manner of dark events into their homes…


1982

Carole Compton found love in the form of an Italian man who was passing through her hometown of Ayrshire in Scotland in 1982. He was completing a British placement for his military service, and on his way back to Italy.

Compton was completely in love, and decided to move to Italy so she could be close to him when he finished his military responsibilities.

As soon as she arrived in Italy she found a job as a nanny within days of settling down…

Carole Compton and her Italian Man


The Ricci Family

Carole’s first employers were the Ricci family, and she settled into her new position, and career direction, with relative ease…

Until one day, as she was walking past a religious painting in the home, it mysteriously fell to the floor and smashed. One of the Ricci Family’s maids was on hand to witness the incident…

Unfortunately for Carole, this maid had been brought up in a strongly religious family, and she began voicing concerns over Carole’s soul. She told the heads of the Ricci family that Compton immediately sank to her knees and prayed as soon as the painting hit the floor – as if this sort of thing had happened to her before.

Just days later Carole accompanied the Ricci family when they went to their holiday home in the Italian Alps. Over the period of the holiday visit, three fires broke out in the Alps home.

A investigation on the property took place and the Ricci family were informed that the fires were down to an electrical problem at the home…but the Ricci family were not convinced…and ended up firing Compton just days later.


The Tonti Family

Carole got lucky, and within a matter of weeks after her sacking from the Ricci family, she found employment with the Tonti family, who lived in their grandparent’s home on the island of Elba.

During the first few months of her job, Carole seemed to fit right in with the family’s lifestyle…but unfortunately this did not last…

All of a sudden Carole began complaining to certain members of the Tonti family about strange scratching noises following her around the property. She also seemed to be responsible for the destruction of numerous religious statues throughout the home.

Grandmother Tonti had seen enough, and began to call Carole a “Strega” or witch.

The rest of the family seemed to take Carole’s side, and told the grandmother she was being a ridiculous old superstitious fool…but all this changed when a fire eventually broke out in the bedroom of the Tonti’s three year old child.

When the police looked into the incident they noticed that Carole Compton had been linked with strange fires at her previous post as a nanny (with the Ricci family), and she was promptly arrested.

She ended up spending sixteen months in lockup as she waited for her trial to take place (for attempted murder).

The Tonti Family


The Trial

Eventually Carole stood trial in December of 1983, and was found not guilty for the main charge…but guilty for the charge of arson and attempted arson and sentenced to two and a half years in prison.

However, the judge realized that she had been in jail for quite some time leading up to the trial, and decided to release her once proceedings had finished.

Unfortunately, numerous newspapers throughout Europe caught onto the case, and began publishing stories of Carole labeled as the ‘nanny witch’.

Carole now lives with her husband and children in Yorkshire and rarely talks about the incidents that happened in Italy.

Do you think that Carole was somehow linked to the occult – that she was indeed a witch?

Maybe poltergeist activity was following Carole Compton around Italy?
