Real Ghost Story, The Entity

August 27, 2013

Real Ghost story, the Entity told by lead paranormal investigator Barry Taft. The San Pedro Haunting (also known as The Jackie Hernandez’s Case) was a very frightening poltergeist case that occurred in late summer 1989 in San Pedro, Los Angeles, California. A woman named Jacqueline ‘Jackie’ Hernandez claimed that she and her two kids Jamie and Samantha were besieged by an unseen force in theirs house that manifested itself in form of disembodied head, black shadows, moving objects, strange smells and flying orbs. The haunting started in November 17, 1988 as soon as Jackie moved to San Pedro and increased in crescendo as the months went by until it reached its violent peak in August 1989 and with an attempt on a man’s life in September 4, 1989. From October 1989 until 1993, the haunting continued even when Jackie finally decided to leave her bungalow with her two small children to a new home in Weldon, California. However, the evil spirit did not seem to give up on her as it “followed” Jackie to her new trailer. The events were extensively documented by the Emmy-Award cinematographer Barry Conrad assisted by the famous parapsychologist in the field of paranormal, Dr. Barry E. Taff PhD. “The San Pedro Haunting” made it right into the hands of local media and soon gained it’s “haunting momentum” and became the greatest supernatural case ever recorded on television and shown to the wider audience as an evidence that ghosts and demon exist. As of September 2008, it is reported that Jackie’s former bungalow is still being haunted as neighbors registered eerie activities happening around the house.
