Demon Terrorizes Family In House At Brownsville; Pittsburgh For 20 Years Till The Man Did This



Haunted houses are pretty common in areas rich in history, but most of the time it is human spirits which refuses to leave their abode or a poltergeist making mischief and scaring the hell out of people. Sometimes due to the history of the house, there could be multiple hauntings and when it involves a demon, then there is a lot to be worried and feared about. The Pittsburg Demon house- made famous by this name had a myriad of creepy incidents happening in it. What makes it more fascinating than any other haunted house in America is the detailed notes the owner of the house made about the paranormal and demonic activity occurring in it. The account of the haunting of the Pittsburg house on Brownsville road, Pennsylvania has become the most famous modern haunting ever recorded.

1How was the house cursed?

The house was constructed on a mass burial site of white men killed by Native Americans in the 1700s. Although this has not been historically proven, it holds ground. According to Bob Cranmer the author of the journals, the land was already cursed. The second theory was during the actual construction of the house; a workman allegedly put a curse on the property because the “then” owner H.P Malick owed him money as well as had a beautiful wife which made him envious.

2It was regarded as a site where an alcoholic doctor performed hundreds of abortions

It was believed that a doctor rented a room in the property to perform illegal abortions which was a taboo at the time.  Obviously, there were no records but a doctor named Doctor Mahan Sr. was reported to have carried out such activities in the area. According to Bob Cranmer a devout catholic kid called Connie Valenti, met the doctor and confronted him that he was a reincarnation of one of the many kids he illegally aborted and he wanted his revenge.

3The Cranmer family received a suspiciously good deal on their new home


This where the sinister play starts unfolding which would engulf Cranmer for a long time. In his book, the Demon of Brownsville Road, he described the house as extremely pretty and idyllic. He was shocked when the house of his dreams actually came out in the market exactly the time he started looking for one.  It was as if the house was beckoning him. The sellers of the house were willing to sell the house at any price as if they wanted to get rid of it.

Cranmer should have been more suspicious during his first walk through the house with the family. They were extremely tensed and suddenly they one of their boys disappeared and was found sobbing on the front staircase as if something had violated him. Still, Cranmer decided to ignore the red flags and moved in. the paranormal activity started almost immediately after he moved in and dream house was slowly becoming the chief source of stress in the family.

4The Cranmers thought they were victims of a classic haunting

After the purchase and moving in, the family tried to make peace with the fact that may be sharing their house with a ghost and nothing more sinister than that. In fact, for weeks there were typical poltergeist activities such as the house in a complete mess, taps running at full flow, all the lights on etc. However, things started getting darker.

The family actually witnessed blood dripping from the walls, ghostly poundings which by the way signals a trademark demonic presence. They wanted to scientifically verify what they saw and invited Ryan Buell from A&E paranormal state to film an episode in the house. The findings were bone chilling. Ryan claims he saw a metal crucifix bend in front of him and blood again materialized on the wall. The people’s magazine later verifies through forensic tests that the liquid was indeed blood.
