They Won’t Leave

“’Are you living or dead?’ asked Father Theo. ‘I am dead,’ said the voice.”

A quote from the second of today’s two tales. Our first story is our second black-eyed children encounter report. Why is a married couple still haunted by briefly meeting two black-eyed children over thirty years ago? Our second story is a summary of the most heavily documented Catholic exorcism in US history – the early 20th century exorcisms of Wisconsin’s Emma Schmidt. Was a woman’s soul antagonized by demons and even the Devil himself for roughly three decades? Also, Lynze reads two creepy listener-submitted stories today. Which of these tales, if any, will leave you feeling scared to death?

Opening Sumerian protection spell (adapted):
Whether thou art a ghost that hath come from the earth, or a phantom of night that hath no home… or one that lieth dead in the desert… or a ghost unburied… or a demon or a ghoul… Whatever thou be until thou art removed… thou shalt find here no water to drink… Thou shalt not stretch forth thy hand to our own… Into our house enter thou not. Through our fence, breakthrough thou not… we are protected though we may be frightened. Our life you may not steal, though we may feel SCARED TO DEATH.”
