The famous "flying phone" photo with Tina Resch

Real Name: Tina Resch
Case: Unexplained Phenomenon
Date: 1984
Location: Columbus, Ohio


Details: Tina Resch is the adopted daughter of the Resch family. In 1984, she was subject to poltergeist activity that occurred around her in the form of telekinetic activity. Photojournalist Fred Shannon tried to catch the activity at play but snapped a rather notorious display as he pretended to relax himself around her. His photo shows her sitting in a chair with the flexible cord of a telephone handset stretched out in front of her. Credibility in her case was weakened when a camera left running caught her knocking over a lamp which she later blamed on the poltergeist. Skeptic James Randi claims he was refused by the Resch family from taking a look at the activity.
