I live south of Pittsburgh in Western Pa. and this was a story on a local Pittsburgh news station.
Source is in the title above )
When I read this article I followed a few links…one to the book site which led me to a People Magazine article about all of this, and more.
I ended up at another link, viewing this entire video and crying at the end since there are several stories and the last one involved an autistic child and how a grandmother unknowingly opened up a nightmare for the child and her daughter ( it does have a happy ending though! ) This link below involves one of the gentlemen that assisted in the Pittsburgh case.
The reason that I cried at the end of the video ( Link Above ) was because if you’ve read any stories lately about children suffering from mental illness ( CNN has run a few over the last few months…generally because the parents are beseeching for help ) then you’d assume that the little autistic child in the last video was suffering from the same, and I cried because how would we or anyone know the difference.
In the case of the Pittsburgh house haunting I cannot imagine staying there…a family staying there while they endured this / that was my initial reaction. Yet they must have felt that they were in a war and needed to win it, who knows..
At any rate, this story and following the links and reading more about the various people in the initial story and the video was fascinating and scary and informative on many levels. Since it was a local story I thought to go ahead and do a post about it :)
Though I will say that the paragraph spacing in my draft simply will not show up in the post preview no matter how many times I have tried to save it so I give up and am just posting as is.
