What Is The Truth About The Enfield Poltergeist?
There was a period of apparent poltergeist activity in a house in London, England, between August 1977 and September 1978, with an added outburst in August 1980. During this time furniture is said to have moved by itself, knockings on the walls were heard, and children's toys were said to have been thrown around and to have been too hot to touch when picked up.
The Poltergeist activity centered around an 11-year-old girl, Janet Hodgson. She seemingly acted as the mouthpiece for Bill Wilkins, a foul-mouthed, grumpy old man who had died in the house many years before. Naturally, many questioned whether it was all a hoax - but no explanation other than the paranormal has ever been convincingly put forward.The Presurfer
