The Thornton Heath Poltergeist Case
Twenty-seven years ago, in Thornton Heath, England, a family was
tormented by poltergeist phenomena that started one August night when
they were woken in the middle of the night by a blaring bedside radio
that had somehow turned itself on tuned to a foreign-language station.
This was the beginning of a string of events that lasted nearly four
The Enfield Poltergeist Case
Another English ghost this one in Enfield in North London made
headlines in 1977. The strange activity seemed to center around the
daughter of Peggy Harper, a divorcee in her mid-40s. Again, it started
on an August night. Late at night, An Urban Ghost Story relates,
Janet, aged 11 and her brother Pete, aged 10, complained that their
beds were jolting up and down and going all funny. As soon as Mrs.
Harper got to the room, the movements had stopped as far as she was
concerned her kids were making it all up.
The Danny Poltergeist Case
In 1998, Jane Fishman, a reporter for the Savannah Morning News,
began a series of articles about a possibly haunted antique bed in the
home of Al Cobb of Savannah, Georgia. Cobb bought the vintage late-1800s
bed at an auction as a Christmas present for his 14-year-old son, Jason
a purchase he later regretted.
