The Case: Surrounded – Cedar Park, Texas
Annie says she’s experienced plenty of spooky activity on her property over the years, from seeing apparitions of Native Americans to spotting mysterious hooded figures that disappear as quickly as they appeared. She’s lived in the home for more than 10 years and feels compelled to stay even though she has health problems that she believes have been made worst by whatever entities seem to be plaguing her home.
Joel, a friend of Annie’s who also lives with her part-time, is no stranger to the bizarre occurrences either—especially outside of the house.
The Case: Terror in the Shadows – Acampo, California
Amy opens up about her experience with shadow people, as they seem to be a BIG problem in this house. Amy says that when she was only 4 years old, she had her first run-in with shadow people and it almost cost her her life. After befriending the shadow people, Amy says, they told her to bite down on an electrical cord in her bedroom, which she did.
Needless to say, Amy’s encounter with the shadow people who haunt this house has her ready to head out the front door.
The Case: Death Sentence – Santa Fe, New Mexico
The Case: The Ax Murder House – Villisca, Iowa
In June of 1912, the Moore family, along with two young guests, were violently murdered in the small town of Villisca, Iowa. To this day, the case remains unsolved.
John, a tour guide, lives in the house next door that was once owned by Mary Peckham, the woman who discovered the bodies of the Moore family and their guests. John has experienced activity in the historic home—and he’s worried he brought some of the activity home with him.
Over the years, there were four key suspects in the investigation, including Reverend Kelly, a preacher who was in town around the time of the murder. While he was brought to trial twice, according to historian Roy Marshall, he was never convicted of the crime.
During Amy’s walk, she feels strongly that more than one person committed this crime. But what is the truth? We may never know.
