The experience began over two years ago with unusual happenings at her home, including swarms of flies around her front porch in winter and inexplicable creaking noises in her basement. Events escalated into possessive incidents including her eldest daughter unconsciously floating over her bed, medical staff witnessing her middle son slide backwards across the floor, wall and ceiling.

According to Relativity, the DCS case manager saw her youngest son growl with his teeth bared and eyes rolled back, and wrapped his hands around his older brother’s throat, without recalling the incident. Initial psychological investigations and attempts at exorcism brought no explanation or solution to the bizarre events.
