A man’s been claiming for years that his house is haunted, but people are now starting to believe him KCPQ/screenshot

A man from Bothell, Wash. has been saying for years that his house is haunted by poltergeists, but his claims have been met with derision rather than belief.

Lately, though, homeowner Keith Linder’s been encouraged by a visit from people at the Scientific Establishment of Parapsychology, who seemed to validate that something strange is afoot in the house.

Linder has said that he’s seen anything from furniture tipping over, to Bibles burning, to candles being smashed on the wall. He also claimed to have set up a camera while no one was at home.

In that video, a baby can be heard laughing and a shadow was picked up. In other instances, Linder said he found random objects thrown all over the place.

“A previous team, Ghost Adventures, had been in and left with zero evidence and kind of painted us in the wrong light of attention-getting, hoaxing,” he told Q13. “We were dragged through the mud, my girlfriend especially, dragged through the mud as being hoaxes, pranksters and attention-seekers — none of which is true.”

One of the parapsychologists, Steve Mera, said it might have something to do with the house being built on settlements where people passed away.

“We came here, we listened to Keith’s story. We talked to a priest. That priest told us something quite phenomenal, that there was evidence, or he believed, Keith’s home was built on settlements of people who had passed away and they could still be here,” he said.

They concluded that “intelligent haunting” was occurring.

Do you buy it, though?
