"A young couple have claimed they are being driven from their home by a violent 'schizophrenic' spirit after footage showed a 'ghostly male' figure walking past their daughter's crib.
Mother-of-one Heather Brough, 25, from Michigan, discovered three deep 'purple scratches' on her one-year-old baby's cheek after waking her from a nap.

The unexplained injuries on her daughter Lily, prompted Ms Brough and her fiance Josh Higgins, 30, who live at his mother's guesthouse, to check their baby camera.

And when reviewing the footage, they claim to have seen a male figure briskly walking past Lily's cot before disappearing into thin-air.  

A young couple have claimed they are being driven from their home by a violent 'schizophrenic' spirit after footage showed a ghostly figure walking past their daughter's crib.

The pair are now actively looking for a new home to get away from the 'haunted' property - after paranormal investigators confirmed the house had 'paranormal activity'.

Mr Higgins' mother said the former owner of the home was an elderly lady who lay with a broken hip for 'a very long time' until she was found dead at the bottom of the stairs.
Her schizophrenic brother lived in the guesthouse until his death some years later.  

Ms Brough said: 'This is a spirit - I don't know what its intentions are but at this point it's becoming physically harmful. This has made us want to leave as soon as possible. As soon as possible we're out of here.

'Seeing Lily's face with the scratches was so bizarre and frightening. There was no explanation as to how that would have happened. It happened within 20 minutes.

'We wondered if she'd scratched herself, but when we put her hands up to the scratches it did not match up. I think it's possible this is the previous tenant,' she added.

The seemingly creepy sighting on their baby camera is far from the first for Ms Brough, who claims she experienced months of ghostly goings-on prior to the incident.

She claims to have heard screaming, stomping, and laughing, while home alone and was even woken from her sleep by the sound of a male shouting.

'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 toe,' she explained.

She is now actively looking for a new home to get away from the 'haunted' property - after paranormal investigators confirmed the house had 'paranormal activity'.

The terrified mother added: 'The first couple of times it happened I thought my fiance and his brother were running up and down the stairs for things - but when I opened the door no-one was there.

'I woke up to get ready for work one morning and it felt like someone was choking me. It shook me to the point where I decided to buy our camera.'

Kris, Heather's mother-in-law, lives in the main house with her husband Jim, and claims they have had paranormal investigators confirm there is ghostly activity in their property.  

She said: 'At first I thought, "she's a baby. Maybe she scratched herself?" But then the next day I looked at it and they were deep - like blue-purple scratches. They were pretty prominent and there's no way she could do that to herself.

'Ever since that incident happened, they don't leave the baby alone in any particular room. They put her to bed and make sure they are upstairs with her. They're together at all times, except when she's at daycare.'

Many thanks to Heather Brough "

Low light, low frame rate. Meh.
At first glance the baby's motion is jerky and even stops near the end of the segment while the supposed ghost moves fluidly without hesitation, they even move the circle while the baby is motionless. Don't know if I've seen babies get up in the crib and just freeze.

Nope. That baby is moving all thru the walk-by of that ghost.
I know I've seen something similar just recently. While I was visiting my daughter in BC last month, my grand daughter was congested. To help her sleep at night they use a room humidifier mister that creates a timed plume of water vapour. It even makes a little noise when it does this. Can anyone prove beyond all doubt that there is no misting device in the room the video was shot? The video figure (ghost) gradually falls to the floor just like a mist would. Since the machine would have to be on the far side side of the playpen/crib in order to be out of view, there is a possibility the mist from it has been mistaken for an entity or that's what they want us to think. Parents may not realize it or they're just too dumb to figure it out. Since there is doubt, this video goes into the trash. Good night.

You're the one making the absurd claim. So prove beyond all doubt that it's a mist from a misting device.

I have made no such claim. All I said was that the possibility exists. There is a claim that the shadowy image in the video is a ghost. I have provided a doubt to that claim.  I suppose then that an infant cannot scratch its own face or that only a vapoury ghost can do such damage. Tell me you know that to be true. I say cut the kids fingernails for starters.

Here's another thing that stands out. For parents who say they're so concerned about the baby, I would hope the camera is in a position to see as much of the baby as possible. From Baby Gear: 
Quote:....you want to find a place in your baby’s room where you can put the camera at least 6 foot / 1.8 meters away from your child, while still being close enough to give you a clear view of your baby.


I didn't see the kid in the vid until s/he stood up and then only the head. For all anyone knows there could have been a rat/mouse/spider/scorpion in that pen with junior. My daughter's baby cam has a clear unobstructed view of the entire sleeping surface. The baby cam in this video is virtually useless in its current position. Unless you want to make mist look like a ghost. Lot of light in that room from all angles playing havoc with mist shadow patterns. My hearing has deteriorated over the years so I can't say for certain if a sound accompanied this video but are not most baby cams accompanied with a microphone. I can hear my grand daughter on her baby cam.

Nah, there's too much wrong with this vid to convince me there is a ghost present. Either deliberate fraud or two parents who won't make the dean's list. Also, ghostly shadow effect may have been accidentally discovered by parents or a friend and the decision was made then to make a spooky video.
Quote:All I said was that the possibility exists.

A mere possibility won't be enough. You'll have to prove it is actually there to be taken seriously. Otherwise it's just some more bullshit you made up.

Quote:For all anyone knows there could have been a rat/mouse/spider/scorpion in that pen with junior

Go ahead and show us the rat/mouse/spider/scorpion then. A merely possible one can't hurt anyone.

Quote:Nah, there's too much wrong with this vid to convince me there is a ghost present.

LOL! Once again methinks the lady doth protest too much. It's just a little ghost. It won't hurt you none.
MR, you’re a priceless commodity no forum can wish to lose. Your choice of the paranormal is one of the more contentious and controversial of topics, covering all generations. I don’t know if you actually believe it all but you present it as if you do. That’s important because by taking a stance, an opportunity arises for some of us to cast doubt on the subject.  

Now as for this last post I suggest you talk to this guy if you don’t like what I’m saying:

You mean this? This is all he has to offer? Again, if it were a real person it wouldn't vanish into thin air.

“Hello, my name is Kenny Biddle, and I've been investigating paranormal claims for the last 20+ years. Your video of what is believed to be a ghost walking in your house was brought to my attention by several paranormal groups. After taking a look at it, I was wondering if there was a longer clip - perhaps footage showing the few minutes leading up to (and including) the clip that was shared on ABC Action News. The clip that has been shared starts with the figure already in motion, and I was hoping to see where it originates. I noticed the TV was on, so being able to confirm it wasn't someone (living) watching TV and perhaps got up to get something, would be beneficial. I'm not saying this was a hoax, I'm just trying to get as much information as possible to understand what the video is showing. I appreciate your time in reading this. I hope to hear back from you. Have a good day.”
