There are sounds you hear in your house or things you see that immediately fall in the “odd” category, but end up being predictable, like the unwelcome invasion of a rodent. Then there are other problems that can happen, and they fall in the category of the unexplained but clearly a problem that needs to be addressed or avoided. For one mother, noises in the night became far more than an occasional irritation, and ultimately ended affecting all of her family as well.
Starting With a Video
Heather Brough had had enough. She kept hearing noises at night while she was trying to sleep, and it had gotten to the point that she was confronting her fiancé, Joshua, about the racket which he was denying. Finally, she set up a monitor in her child’s room where it seemed to come from. However, what she ended up seeing was more than she bargained for in the process.
Scratches and Noises
The fuss started with Heather finding scratches on her baby’s face and an unexplained racket every night. There were only two people in the home, her and her fiancé. So, Heather finally confronted her partner about the matter. He denied anything. So, she set up a video monitor to catch what was going on in the guesthouse they were living in on Joshua’s mother’s property.
A Year Passed
The young couple had been borrowing the guesthouse from Joshua’s parents to have a place to live starting a new family. Heather and Joshua had just had a baby daughter and had spent their first year focusing raising their new girl. However, at about 13 months or so Heather noticed something odd about her child and realized the baby’s face had been scratched.
The first scratch was chalked up to the child’s fingernails. However, the scratches kept show up with new injuries on the baby’s face. Finally, Heather decided to question her fiancé as he was the only other person who had been in the guesthouse with the child besides Heather. It didn’t help their relationship.
Things Were Great Before
The couple were in a simple but ideal world. They lived in a small town, quiet, and enjoyed their new life together with their baby. They were deep in love and a baby daughter had added another aspect to their relationship. Now, things seemed to be unraveling out of control.
With her senses on alert, Heather woke up one night when she heard noises in the house at night. There was a floor thump, a door squeak, and sounds like someone walking around. The next morning there would be new scratches again on her child’s face. Small, but they were new each time.
Getting Down to the Truth
Now it was time for confrontation and to pin down what was going on. Heather went right to the jugular and asked her fiancé if he was getting up in the middle of the night and moving around. Specifically, she asked if he was going into Lily’s room at night. Was the truth going to shatter their wonderful home?
Denial and Proof
Joshua denied any possibility of moving around at night or going in their daughter’s room at night. But Heather didn’t believe him. She heard the sounds, and her daughter’s face kept getting injured. If it was really Joshua, then Heather was going to have to catch him doing the harm and figure out why. Maybe he was sleepwalking. Maybe he was taking drugs and not in his straight mind. She didn’t know, but she had to figure it out.
Joshua continued to refuse acknowledging anything was his doing. Heather started feeling like she was somewhat losing her mind. Clearly, something was harming her child. Something was making the noise in the house at night. And something was creaking the doors. But Joshua was flat out refusing any of it was him. And Heather made sure everything was locked before going to sleep.
Eliminating all the quick and immediate explanations, Heather started realizing that another possibility could be occurring. The video monitor was going to confirm things conclusively. Either Joshua was involved and he was lying, or something else was happening. The couple agreed to get a monitor and set it up just to have peace in the house again.
The couple made sure the baby’s crib was in full view of the monitor. Heather also trimmed her daughter’s fingernails to insure they weren’t the cause as well. Joshua was sure that was the cause because babies are prone to scratching their faces during sleep from what he had heard separately.
Going the Extra Step
The couple didn’t cut corners on the monitor either. They made sure that the Logitech Circle 2 they bought could produce a clear video image and would continue to record everything going on as well as with night vision, showing anything moving in the dark.
The next morning, their daughter, Lily, woke up again with scratches on her face, new ones. The video was going to make it clear what the heck was going on. Heather was convinced she would find the answer. She was right. However, it wasn’t the answer she was prepared for. It was something else.
Time for an Investigation
The video did indeed catch a figure in the room. It wasn’t Heather, and it wasn’t Joshua. There was a man’s blurry image, which at first she immediately assumed was proof Joshua was indeed involved.
The Close Up
Heather could see the man in the room walk past the baby’s crib. She could also see her daughter was awake and noticing the presence. Her baby sat up in the crib for attention. The figure then turned towards her daughter, and Lily gets closer standing up using the crib wall. At this point in the video Heather knew immediately the figure was not Joshua at all.
Heather literally had a physical reaction run through her as she realized what she was looking at. Her heart felt like it stopped. The man was unknown, a total stranger in her child’s room. She couldn’t blink or turn away. Who the heck was this figure in her child’s room at night and how did he get in?
The figure didn’t stop with Lily. He kept moving around the room. Heather had to get to the bottom of things and figure how this guy was getting past locked doors into her child’s bedroom. She also needed to know how he was harming Heather’s child.
Heather felt like she played the video over a thousand times. With the repeat detail, the mother could see the figure was at one point see-through or transparent. She was not dealing with something normal. Heather felt at chill at that second reached for her daughter.
Whatever the reason, Heather didn’t take long to put two and two together. The guesthouse was haunted. She confronted Joshua again and demanded that they leave the home, immediately. The scratches on her daughter’s face didn’t calm Heather any further.
Heather continued to react in shock. She was crying, questioning, panicking and freaking out. She grabbed a jacket, her daughter, and ran to Joshua’s mother’s house nearby. The scratches didn’t come from Lily. The side and distance didn’t match her baby daughter’s hand size.
How to Protect?
Joshua was relieved and scared at the same time. The video proved it wasn’t him, but something else was definitely in their house. He needed to protect them immediately. He practically stumbled outside right after Heather and called the police.
An Explanation for Everything
The police didn’t discount what Joshua and Heather reported. Instead, they were referred to the Scientific Paranormal Investigation of Michigan, an outfit that focused on investigating issues that didn’t follow the normal rules of cause and effect.
More Details Come Out
As it turned out, the baby was not the only one affected. Now it was starting to make sense. Heather finally admitted there had been mornings she would wake up struggling to breathe like someone was choking her, but no one was there. So, she thought it was a bad dream. She would also hear a male voice, like someone swearing hitting their shin on something.
Mike Priest, one of the paranormal investigators, already felt there was a good chance they would find something. The details and descriptions matched up behavior the team had seen before in other homes and locations that turned out to be haunted.
Barely started on the investigation at Heather’s home and the team knew they had a live one. They would hear sounds, quirks, reactions and more to their presence. Mike quickly shifted the team to a full investigation mode.
Watch, Repeat, Watch, Repeat
Good paranormal work tries to follow the scientific process objectively confirming what’s going on, observed, and reconstructing it again repeatedly. Mike’s team follows the same process with video and tracking to repeat the same results that Heather described in the baby’s room.
Lots of Stories
The mother-in-law speculated quickly the figure was the ghost of the last resident in the guesthouse. When the bought the properly an elderly lady had lived in the guesthouse and died on the property, but that was in the main house. The death was due to a stairway fall and accident. Joshua’s dad thought a different story applied. A tenant had been in the guesthouse and turned out to have been schizophrenic. He was the brother of the lady who died.
While the paranormal investigation ultimately did not confirm anything further, Heather and Joshua were far from over with the issue. They weren’t going back into that guesthouse.
Meantime on the Internet
The video that Heather’s monitor had recorded end up on the Internet. And that triggered a viral reaction as the images were shared. Soon enough, an number of skeptics started voicing their opinions that the video may have been faked.
A Professional Skeptic
Kenny Biddle was a particularly focused skeptic, asking a lot of questions about the details on the video. He noticed shadows which shouldn’t occur with a real ghost. In short, he summarized the video figure as actually being one of the parents getting up in the middle of the night, walking through the room and unaware he or she had been recorded. Further, the scratches were common with babies and sharp fingernails.
The Big Odd Detail
However, what Biddle really found blew a lid off the whole thing. As it turned out, Heather had set up both a Facebook page and a GoFundMe page. The Facebook page had been around since November 2018. The GoFundMe request page was established on March 26, 2019, requesting help to raise $5,000. The reason: moving costs to escape a paranormal guesthouse.
Following Up on the Details
Kenny Biddle followed through on the contact details to Heather’s Facebook page to get more info and ask questions. This was normal; he had been investigating supposed paranormal events for two decades. He referenced Heather’s video and asked if he could see the entirety of the recording versus just the clip with the mysterious figure.
Unfortunately, while Kenny’s questions were fair giving the publicity of the video and Heather’s GoFundMe page asking for help, he never got an answer. To date, Heather has yet to respond to the information request at all.

Elderly Man Found Hanging On To His Capsized Vessel For Survival
Family members, friends, fellow mariners are all thankful that a senior who went missing off the coast of Florida has been found and is receiving medical attention.
62-year-old Stuart Bee was rescued by the crew from a cargo ship en route to Denmark even as the US Coastguards and others searched diligently for him for two consecutive days.
Mr. Bee was hanging on for dear life to the bow of his boat and waving his shirt desperately to draw the attention of anyone in the approaching vessel. Little did he know that they were headed to retrieve him from the salty water and overall weather he had been exposed to for the three days.
The crew on the vessel known as Angeles had been on the lookout for the stranded man as they had received an enhanced call from the United States Coast Guard to stay alert for a missing sailor and his vessel. The critical message from the Coastguards reached every large boat within a certain mile radius to help with the mission.
How did Mr. Bee end up in this horrific situation?
About 4:00 Friday after Mr. Bee went for what was deemed as a typical ride out to sea, which would only be for a few hours. He was onboard a recreational Sea Ray boat named Sting Ray; a 32-foot vessel left to sea from Cape Marina at Port Canaveral.
Mr. Bee, who would typically return to the Marina, had not done so up to Saturday morning, which drew the concern of another marina member. The fellow seaman decided to report him missing just before midday on Saturday, less than 18-hours after the Sting Ray had left the docks.
He emphasized to Coast Guard officials that it was highly unusual for the small boat to be out at night and, even more so, such a long time.
All this time, the sailor was stranded at sea due to mechanical difficulties on his boat while more than eighty miles away from the coast. This rendered the boat immovable, and Mr. Bee had to call it a night. It’s, however, a night he won’t soon forget. On his second night stuck at sea, he noticed around midnight that the vessel was rapidly taking on water. This could not have been worse timing since everything around the mariner was pitch black.
The boat eventually capsized, and he clung to it with all he had, hoping for someone, anyone, to pass by and see him.
The Angeles crew members aboard their 225-foot cargo ship had been vigilant from the moment they got the Coast Guard message, and it reaped success. According to US Coast Guard Petty Officer 1st Class David Micallefto, about 11:00 Sunday morning, the Angeles crew sighted Mr. Bee and rescued him. To think he could summon the strength to wave after being exposed to the elements all weekend was indeed an inspiration to his rescuers.
Earlier that morning, a US Coast Guard team from Clearwater, with the assistance of an Aircraft hovering, made futile attempts to find the missing mariner. It was a sense of relief when they got the call from the Angeles crew that they had spotted Mr. Bee and rescued him.
Mr. Micallefto emphasized that everything about the rescue is so “amazing.” He said the Coast Guard is grateful to the Angeles team for responding so positively to the broadcast about the missing man. He says, more importantly, Mr. Bee can spend Christmas with his loved ones.
An important point to note is the unity among mariners. Everyone heeded the call for assistance, from the US Customs and Border Patrol to passing vessels. It proved to be profitable with the man’s rescue.
A Incredibly Speedy Kidney Delivery
A Lamborghini is supposed to be used as a race car. It is the ultimate design in vehicular mechanics and road-racing performance. That said, it’s not everyday one goes about driving 300 miles in just under two hours and it’s allowed.
The Italian police picked up their own copy of the Lamborghini Huracan in 2017. Italy is quite famous for some of its characters, and the police decided it made sense to have at least one vehicle that could keep up with an over-powered criminal in a very hot car. That said, that wasn’t the only purpose justifying the acquisition. When delivery of items or materials had to be done quickly, far faster than normal transport could provide, the Huracan was brought out. And that included transporting critical life-saving shipments as well. The vehicle was even fitted for refrigeration as a result.
Physically, the Italian police Lamborghini is by all respects a bona fide police vehicle. It is fitted with a light bar system, a full paint job and logo, and the inside is decked out with a police computer and radar tools for traffic enforcement.
In the latest major use of the vehicle, the Huracan was assigned for a fast delivery of a kidney. The distance was a long stretch, running from Rome all the way to Padua. The engine was more than up to the job. A V10 assembly easily capable of running at 145 mph without straining, the Huracan’s only major issue was the driver’s ability to control the car and other traffic being in the way. The second part was generally resolved with some flashing of the police lights and a bit of siren noise to wake up the sleepy truck driver or two.
Once arrived, the entire trip made for a very handy marketing event that the Italian police were quick to post online via Twitter, showcasing the entire affair and the vehicle as well. Driving from Rome to Padua basically totaled 489 kilometers (a smidge over 300 miles). Time wise, the police made the run in two hours with their Lamborghini, a trip that typically would take over five hours, even with a respectable vehicle at normal speeds.
There were other alternatives for the kidney transfer; Italy has plenty of its own helicopters, including the police agencies. However, the Huracan did prove its worth, and it gave the officers a chance to really put a 602 horsepower engine through its paces with full authorization.
The whole affair was quite operational and had no resemblance to a road rally. There were no crowds waiting at every turn or a track completely flagged with blaring horns and track lights. But as far as the doctors were concerned, there might as well have been because the kidney arrived in ample time, suffered no degeneration, and was implanted into the surgical patient successfully, likely saving another life. And that, ultimately meant everything that all the effort and resources could arguably be justified after all. But there’s no argument, the whole affair made for a good marketing for the Italian police as well.
