Michael jones

Case File: Jones House
Location: Connecticut
Date: Unrevealed
Description: The Jones family lived in unrevealed residential home.


History: The Jones House was the home of the Jones family who believed they lived with ghosts. One evening, Denise Jones was preparing dinner when she heard her son, Michael, screaming. She went to his room and found him curled up, frightened, shaking, and screaming. He told her that he saw the face of a strange-looking man smiling at him who touched his shoulder and then disappeared. He was just five years old when he saw his first ghost, and claims that they continue to invade his home and terrorize his family. Shortly after the incident, they were at Denise's parents' house when he began yelling again.

Michael's great grandfather

He told his mother and grandparents that a man in a picture on the wall was the one in his room. He was Denise's grandfather, who had died seventeen years earlier, and Michael had never met him. Michael soon felt better because he felt that his great-grandfather was watching over him. Then he claimed that evil spirits were in the house and that they wanted to take him to their side. Denise got a paranormal investigator, John Zaffis, to investigate him and their home. He believes that Michael's ghost sightings are genuine. Another ghost that he claims to see is an evil spirit that he calls the "Shadow Man", a dark colored man that looks like a shadow that he sees everyday. His family soon realized that the evil spirits were becoming more dangerous. One night, his parents heard strange thumping noises, and they went up and found his bed shaking violently.

Denise then saw this shadow of a six foot tall black colored man that walked across the wall, the same shadow that Michael saw. Then, he claimed that the spirits were physically tormenting him, with hitting, scratching, and biting. John Zaffis believed that the spirits were about to possess him, so Denise decided to move her family to a new home. However, Michael soon began being attacked just like he was at the old one. Denise then decided that he needed an exorcism, so she got the bishop to perform it. Then, he saw the shadow man at church and had him drink holy water. However, he still is being attacked and seeing spirits, but his family believes that one day, the spirits will leave.
Background: None
Investigations: A paranormal investigator named John Zaffis investigated Michael and his home. He spent hundreds of hours with the Jones family, and documented Michael's sightings and tried to determine if he was neurollogically sound and to make sure that they are not medical-related. They were able to determine that they were not medical or psychological. John uncovered through his research that Michael was very ill at birth and his heart stopped over twenty times. He believes that Michael had a near-death experience which helped open the door to the spirit world, that Michael is in a state before possession, and that the spirits are attempting to take over him.
