December 1975, a little over a year later, George and Kathy Lutz and their three children moved into 112 Ocean Avenue, Amityville, NY. Assured that the past was past, the Lutz family believed they would settle comfortably into their new home, which they purchased for a more that favorable discount. But there was another price yet to be paid. On their first day in the home, a priest arrived to bless the house. The Lutz family unwittingly welcomed in their first guest who progressed upstairs. While in one the bedrooms, the priest felt a force slap him across the face and whisper to "get out". Following the incident, it is unclear whether or not the priest confided this detail to the Lutzes (which I plan refer to later) or any information, for that matter. The family begins to experience strange activities in the house. George, the father, felt a constant chill that he fervently tried to get rid of by sitting next the fireplace throughout the day and night. He would also continually wake around 3:15 in the morning, the same time of the murders. The family claimed to have also experienced smaller, yet still noticeable frights, such as occasional odors and noises as well as a mysterious green substance that would appear throughout the house. George also describe the most inconceivable events of all. He claimed watching his wife transform into an elderly woman right before his eyes, hearing loud bangs from his children's bedroom above (the sound of their beds crashing he proclaimed), and finally witnessing his wife, Kathy, levitating across the bed. Finally after 28 days of the unexplainable
tortures, the family packed up the last of their belongings and fled the house.
Shortly thereafter, researchers were called to make investigations. Among these paranormal 'experts' were Ed and Lorraine Warren, who have worked on various other cases including the legend of Annabelle, a doll said to have hosted the presence of a ghost. The Warrens began to investigate along with rest of the assembled team. After toiling for hours in the home, the only hard evidence produced was a single photograph, that capture a human figure peaking out from behind a bedroom by the staircase. In the photo the figure appears to be the face of a young male with demon-like glowing eyes. Although the photograph is the only piece of substantial proof that may prove paranormal activity among the property, its subject has been debated over since the photo was released. Since the Lutz family relocated, there have not been any reports of strange happenings from recent residents.
