Over the recent weeks I have been in touch with a reader called Deanna Simpson about her house in Hanover. You may of heard of it before from a TV series starred on Animal Planet called The Haunted.
A episode dedicated to her house was on there called A Killer From The Grave. It is a very popular Animal planet show that documents and reenacts peoples story and haunted house experiences from around the US.
The Haunted: Return From the Grave
Her story is about her house in Hanover, at the end of the show they do a good cleansing of the house and it appears for a number of weeks and months everything has gone back to normal, however over time the house starts to become active again. Below is our emails talking back and forth and also some recent images revealing ghostly images from around the house. For those that are feint of heart or do not want to believe in ghosts it may be best to not read any further as the images and her story may be confronting.
Our Email Conversation and More On Her Story
Our home is on the Animal Planet …on a show called The Haunted. Our episode is called – Killer From The Grave…And even though our home is better…after the cleansing ..A Priest’s Blessing….and a Reike’s Blessing to go to the light light and live in Gods home…No matter what…if it is a intelligent haunting or whatever it may be they are here to stay! All I can do is Pray to God to bless us every day and to protect our family. Here our some pictures I would like to share of our home from recently…We often have smells…sights of orbs and echo mist’s forming…that is how we know to take pics because we see them…I hope my pics come through…Thanks Timon!

It is very unusual for a ghost to do harm however it can happen in very rare cases. Whether it is a demon or a spirit a good cleansing can get the energy to move on. If it is a demon while i am on that subject they are entities which are much harder and can cause harm.. They also get power from ones fear, so if you fear a lot or are in a stressful situation it can cause it be worse.. In very rare cases a person is possessed or hurt by them, so just in case you will want to keep at your defense as in this is my house, but not afraid. In time this sort of situation most of the time it will get less and less as you take back your power and control.
My mum who has had many experiences with ghosts and paranormal would walk around the house when i was younger and in circumstances of knowing that something was about to happen or hearing something she would say something like
— Yes i know you are here, can you please go to the light.. Go to the
light.. ( firmly, confidently, but not rudely.. )
In instances of big experiences where one sees the ghost this is the best
communication, just let them know, its time to move on to the light.. That
is in the case with spirits, when it comes to demons they are attached to
the person as much as the house as well.. So it is much harder and you
have to be much stronger..
As a suggestion whenever you hear them or have experiences try to say
this, i know it is hard especially when it can be such a, what the
situation.. But this can help.. Sometimes i think spirits just need some
guidance and are confused with where they are..
Below you say you have a portal, so that is what you want to be closed.
Otherwise you maybe asking spirits to move on all day and they keep coming
back time and time again. Finding a good psychic to close it is probably
your next best focus.. With a portal, good, bad or demons can come through
I hope this all helps.. Also if it is okay with you may i use your story
in a post to share with others, with my answer above, let me know, i do
not have to include your name, that is up to you?

Once again …Thank you for all of your support and information…..I will
hold it close ….and a lot of things that you mention,make a lot of sense.
It is just so hard at times to be strong,depending on the situation, but no
matter what I personally get my strength from God and I do call on him
I feel a sense of fear, and I just need to rely on that at all times…
That is what your Mum did in a sense…

Yeah got all those ones, thanks for the share.. There are all very impressive shots. And most definitely indicate spirits beyond doubt.. What i am wondering is do you think it is more than one spirit..?
Also are these recent shots or from the past..? Also were the photos taken by you or..?
If you don’t mind, can you tell me as much about your own experiences and others, the history of the house and the area that the photos were taken and i will do a post on it and see what my readers think on the subject as well..
(Going by the images it looks like to me you have a very active haunting..)
If you want i can add some of your contact details (like email or phone) to the post so possibly psychics or paranormal investigators can contact you to try to help your situation..
So glad you got the pictures! Finally! I don’t know where to start…hummmm ok..First off thank-you for your positive input . Your opinion means a lot to me…There was only two original owners of this home. The family who built this house in 1949 lived here for 25 plus years. The second owners lived her about 30 years . Due to legal issues some family members are still alive , I have to be careful what I say. But I can tell you there is a Woman.. a Man and a young Boy here…Because of the tragic event that happend in this house…a psychic ( more than one ) said we have a portal in the hallway. Which by the way we have tried to close several times.
We do have passed family spirits that live here on a daily basis..They will not go to the light….they just continue to live here. We also have a very un welcomed Male that is here that is associated with the young male…He is a very …very negative spirit. You can feel him ..when he arrives…some times you get a bad smell of cigar when he shows up…
These are recent pics…I have so many i did not know where to start. I did take most of these pictures …because I believe …I get a feeling….like cold chills…goose bumps….and when my cats act up or the whole family senses smell’s I start to take pictures…this is what I get..
My husband …it scares him so he tries to come up with a logical explanation to justify what is happening…He does not want to face it…then it will be real..you know what I mean?
I have had numerous accounts of friends…neighbors .. and strangers…that have came over to this house and have had some paranormal activity happen while they were here…the house seeks attention…and I almost believe it wants to scare you!? I must end this e-mail for now…even though I do not want to …I must go to bed for I work tomorrow…I will contact you after work tomorrow….I want to explain each picture and tell you of each experience…I will also give you my phone number…any help I could get will be a blessing….p.s… I was told by a medium….she says ” They know you want to move….save your money because they are attached to you…and they will just go where you go ”
One more question dear…my husband wants to ask this.. For the last 6 months we have tried a new approach….Instead of telling the spirits you must leave..you are not welcome here…go to the light…since this is not working we decided to do the opposite. ” Hey ..stop it ….you are aloud to stay here …but this is our home and here are the rules ” . Kinda like that…..Is that a safe approach? Here are a couple of pictures that I want to share… these are taken by my daughter Amber ..and at different times myself and my other daughter Lindsay..You can visibly see Orbs in our home….when they are in your presence it feels Angelic..does that make sense?
With that approach it is always worth a try, but it also good to use caution to not invite more spirits in.. If say you have a door in your place then some spirits may walk in and out again causing little problems.
It sounds good that you get relief from leaving as you mentioned in your previous email, this is a good sign that it is the place specifically which can give you a better targeting. Sometimes some places are not good for living, this includes old graveyard sites, old ceremony grounds, old ritual sites, old butchers, burial services, hospitals, etc, etc. This is because these types of places become doors for dying people and doors for connecting to the other side for rituals or ceremonies. Over time these doors can become more and more reinforced as well as the door or practices continues. Sometimes they close by themselves but sometimes they stay open and sometimes negative spirits like demons come through which can usually be very nasty (not human in a way like an ancient spirit )
Demons as well are very hard to move on as they get there power in a different way to spirits and many believe they are not human in any way, based on feeding on fear and getting others attention. ( In the case on demons it is best to get help from a person specializes in demonology and who specializes on how demons work as well as how to get rid of.. These types of professions are really rare though and becoming rarer as well as modern time more and more ignores these practices. )
Thank You for your message Timon,
Your words are of comfort….All of my family lives in Kentucky and even though we only stay a week or two …my comfort level is at its highest.
I don’t have bad dreams….no smells ..foot steps …touching etc to me or my family…its just wonderful….funny you should mention that…why could I not think of that! Duh! HAHAHAH. What I can tell you is…in one years time I have lost 4 babysitters because of this house. When we have friends over its only a matter of time when the house acts up and we make up story’s like…that’s just the fridge. HAHAH.
Now about my pictures……1. the picture with the shadow coming out onto the ceiling was in the kitchen. My cats where in the kitchen crying and staring at the ceiling and then took off…when my husband and I walked into the kitchen to see what was up…we both felt like we walked into a cold breeze,as we looked up…we could not believe our eyes as we watched this come across the ceiling…very soon after that I had a big sense of fear and ran upstairs…..when we came downstairs …later on to ck on the spot…it just remains there …like a imprint.
( Ghostly burned foot print appeared on the floor – No explanation )
2. the red foot print is in our hallway going towards the portal…..? My husband and I woke up to hearing someone walking around downstairs and the person was crying….or whimpering…..I thought it was my daughter and I came downstairs to see if she was her and she was not.
But the cats where trying to cover up the spot on the floor..and as I walked over to it I saw the foot print….by the way…my cats will go out of there way NOT to walk on it or go near it…just one print. 3.The burn on the floor …going towards the front door creepy story… as Barbara Lee was walking out of the house…she had just done a 2 hour walk through blessing the house and casting out all demons and negative energy…. as she opened the front door it smelt like burning leaves…which is normal…it is winter ….. we told her goodbye and shut the door…as we turned around to walk back into the the hallway….on the floor was a freaking burn mark..Wow what does that mean. 4. Last picture..we heard footsteps coming up from the basement…I grappled my camera walked over took the pic and there this was.. ( never a dull moment )
In Summary of the Emails and A Possible Solution to Her Haunting Situation
Okay so above is the long list of emails between me and Deanna over her haunting in question. It appears to me that what happened after her house was cleansed in the show everything went back to normal for a while because this did remove the spirits, however because from what it sounds like with her case that there is a portal there the spirits can just come back in time. In a way the cleanse just pushes the spirits back through the door but does not fully close it.. I have recommended trying to get away from the house for a while, for a few weeks to a month and see how she feels and to see if the spirits are attached to her family.
Another option could be to focus on it like there is a portal there ( caused possibly by the young boy that killed himself there ) and closing it. This could be done, but would require some very experienced psychics spending a lot of time cleansing the place. It would probably involve multiple cleanses on a regular basis as well to ensure it does not open again once it is closed..
If you have an opinion in relation to the Hanover Haunting and the Deanna Simpson story feel free to comment your opinion below. Also if you know of any well known psychic in her area like a person that is good at closing portals in haunted houses let me know and I will pass the details onto Deanna.
I also wanted to say thanks to Deanna and her family for allowing me to share her story here on Occult Blogger, much is appreciated and hopefully in future the solution to your haunting is resolved.
