The mother couldn’t stop crying when she found out what her cat was doing with the baby. A Michigan mom was determined to discover the cause of the strange things happening in her home. It started with her hearing strange noises in the middle of the night. It just got worse from there. It got so bad that she began to blame her fiance for the strange happenings, even though he denied it.
Finally, she had proof. She had video evidence, but she had no idea just what she captured and truth would scare her. Heather Bo Get ready to watch the video she’d recorded from the baby monitor in her daughter’s room. Despite what other people said, she didn’t believe that her daughter was scratching herself in her sleep. She did hit play and began to watch, convinced that she would catch her boyfriend, Joshua in the act.
Her hair stood on end as she saw the figure in the video. Joshua had been telling the truth. It was something else. Heather Beau and Joshua Higgins were living in his mother’s guest house with their one year old daughter, Lily, for just over a year already. Then something happened that made them want to get as far away from there as fast as they could.
It all began when Heather noticed scratches on Lily’s face when she lifted up and out of her crib one day. At first, she didn’t think too much of it, but when more marks appeared, she knew something was up. That’s when she decided to approach Joshua. The couple were in a happy, stable relationship and lived a normal life for a young couple in the town of Highland. All their dreams were coming true.
They had a great home, a beautiful baby girl, and they were madly in love. Then she started hearing strange noises at night. Creaking doors thumps, footsteps in the kitchen, and suddenly the unexplained scratches on her daughter’s face. That was the final straw. She asked Joshua if he was getting up in the night and moving around the house.
She even asked him if he went to Lily’s room. Did he know how she got the scratches? Joshua denied everything and their relationship became strained, intense. It seemed that their fairytale life was in danger of becoming a nightmare. Heather decided to try and catch Joshua in the act.
What she discovered, however, would be much worse than she ever imagined. Heather knew that she needed to do something. Even though he denied it all. Heather couldn’t carry on living like that. She was either going crazy or she was imagining it all.
Maybe it wasn’t Joshua. Maybe it was an animal. The problem with that idea was that Heather always made sure everything was closed up properly. That meant that whoever or whatever scratch Lily must already have been in the house. Heather knew that her relationship was in danger.
She and Joshua decided to buy a baby monitor and set it up so they could watch Lily at night. They set up the camera so that it was focused on the crib. Joshua was sure that it was Lily and it wasn’t uncommon for babies to scratch themselves with their nails while they slept. Heather knew this couldn’t be the case because she made sure to keep Lily’s nails properly trimmed. Neither of them were prepared for the truth.
Heather bought a state of the art camera with night vision capabilities so that she could monitor Lily while she slept. She was determined to get to the bottom of this and find the truth. She set the camera to record and went to sleep enough. The next morning there were more scratches on Lily’s face. Heather immediately went to watch the footage knowing she would be able to see the culprit on the video.
She hit play and watched her own home become a place of nightmares. Heather saw the figure appearing in Lily’s room. She was convinced that it was proof that it was Joshua who was walking around at night. But why would he keep lying about it? Could he have been sleepwalking?
Then Heather’s blood turned to ice as she kept watching, Heather saw the blurry image of the man walk past the crib in the video. Lily immediately looked at him and stood up against the side of her crib. Lily is curious about the man in the room. At that moment, the man turned to face the camera and Heather feels herself turned cold. The man in the footage isn’t Joshua.
Heather couldn’t breathe. Her hair stood on end and her heart was pounding as she kept watching. The man in the video was a complete stranger to her. What was he doing in the house? She watched as she kept watching the crib examining Lily.
Heather began to panic. Who could this man be? It was clear that this man was the source of the strange noises she heard at night. Heather kept watching the clip over and over until she saw something terrifying. There was a point in the video where the man becomes transparent.
Heather realized that she wasn’t looking at a man, but it’s something supernatural. Heather knew immediately that they had to get away from that house as fast as they can. When Joshua watched the footage, he was just as shocked. It was chilling. It was literally a chill down your spine like that.
What if factor? Is this what I just saw? He said. Seeing Lily’s faces with the scratches was so bizarre and frightening. Heather explained.
I was crying. What happened to you? I grabbed her jacket and ran over to my mother in law’s house. Nobody knew what happened. We wondered if she’d scratched herself, but when we put her hands up to the scratches, it didn’t match up.
Joshua was terrified after watching the video with chills running up and down his spine. He knew that he needed to save his family from whatever it was getting away from. There was the most important thing. As the terrified family fled the house, Joshua called the police. After he had explained the situation.
The police referred to him to the Scientific Paranormal Investigations of Michigan. What they would find, however, would be even more terrifying. The co owner of Scientific Paranormal Investigations of Michigan, Mike Priest, sent a team to investigate the house immediately. Their discoveries would ensure that Heather and Joshua were even more desperate to get away from that house. The investigation revealed that not only was the guest house haunted, but the main house was too.
The strange man in the footage wasn’t the only strange thing that happened in the house. I woke up to get ready for work one morning and I felt like someone was choking me, Heather admitted during an interview. It shook me to the point where I decided to buy our camera. She never told Joshua because she didn’t think he would believe her. There have been times where me and my fiance would wake up in the morning and I would hear an angry male voice like someone had stubbed their toes, she said.
I definitely believe there’s something going on in that house, Mike Priest said. We’re looking forward to checking out this one as well. Mike said that when the team came in, they recorded several strange noises in the house. We heard something say, oh, here we go. Yes, I heard it as plain as day, Mike admitted.
Mike and his team came back for a full scale investigation. They hoped that they would be able to find out what exactly Heather had caught on video. They were going to try to replicate the recording, which would prove it’s real or find some logical explanation for what she captured. Chris, Joshua’s mother, had owned the house for eleven years and thought she might be able to explain who is responsible for the haunting. I was told when we bought the houses eleven years ago, the lady who owned the property died in the main house, Chris explained.
It’s an old farmhouse, and according to her niece, she fell down the stairs, broke her hips and laid there for a very long time before she passed away. She said that the guest house was built for the lady’s brother, who was schizophrenic. However, Josh’s dad, Jim, offered a different theory. Jim thinks that the mysterious figure is a previous tenant of the guest house. The gentleman that lived here originally jumped out this window, which is one story down, he told WXYZ TV Detroit.
While they might not be any closer to finding out who the mysterious figure is, Heather and Joshua knew what they had to do. It scares us that it could do something else, Heather said. It’s not physically just going after her. It feels like it’s going after myself, too. This has made us want to leave as soon as possible.
As soon as possible. We’re out of here. This is a spirit. I don’t know what its intentions are, but at this point it’s becoming physically harmful. Although the video released by Heather and Joshua on social media has become a viral sensation overnight and has chilled many viewers to the bone, there are also some skeptics.
Some people don’t believe that the figure in the video is an apparition at all, and they say that was captured on film is far more likely to have a very simple explanation. Kenny Belle of the Skeptical Inquirer wrote. There’s something else I noticed right away the ghost was casting a shadow to actually this tells me the figure is a solid physical object able to reflect light. In the first milliseconds of the video, as the figure is moving to the left, you can see a shadow move across the ceiling right by the ceiling fan. He continues.
I would surmise either Heather and or Joshua had been watching television and had a reason to get up out of bed, perhaps go down to the kitchen for a drink or food or a visit to the bathroom, pause the video and walked across the room not realizing they were being recorded. At a later, unspecified time, they reviewed the footage and due to a lack of understanding of video cameras,
concluded the distorted figure was a ghost. But how does he explain the scratches on Lily’s face? Aside from the technical issues, it’s not uncommon for babies to scratch themselves. We know from her statements that Heather discovered the scratches after waking the baby up from a nap, Kenny wrote.
