I’m listening to the youtube video with Carin Smurl’s account (youngest(?) daughter).
Sounds like there was a lot of hype and misinformation around this stemming from a reporter with an agenda - the ‘demon’ was never there from day one.
A few things happened and it could be a clusterfuck of overlapping issues in the house and land.
- A local tragedy occurred with a husband murdering a wife
- Someone else lost the house to forclosure and cursed it
- Homes in the area are all having paranormal issues
- “bloody rock” is a battle site nearby with it’s own paranormal history
It may also be built on Native American burial grounds, that’s a well known issue that’s rightly called out a lot, or it’s on a node on a ley line, or the land spirits are upset. Lots of things can go wrong when people build without reference to spirit and the land.
I think the reference to ‘demon’ is a red herring. Xtians just call everything ‘demon’ regardless of what it is, ghosts, kinesis etc, and that’s not useful.
Lesser entities, shadow people, ghosts and parasite aplenty though. They followed them when they moved out, so I’d guess parasites first.
It’s not a simple story.
