PostSubject: The Entity   Fri Mar 27, 2009 3:34 pm

We all know this as the horror film in 1982; but the film was actually a true story (most of you probably know this already). I've just been looking at what happened to this poor woman, who must of done something terrible in her past life to make her pay in this one.

Can spectral rape exist?


True Story of Doris Bither


The investigation on August 22, 1974, in Culver City California was to be like any other one Dr. Barry Taff had done. Believing that this would be an open and shut case they showed up at Doris Bither’s house. Not expecting much. Little did they know this would be one of the biggest cases in the annals of paranormal history.

Dr. Barry Taff and his associate Kerry Gaynor were overheard talking about the paranormal by a woman in a local bookstore. The woman approached the two men and told them that her house was haunted. She gave Kerry Gaynor some details of the haunting, in which Gaynor told her that he would discuss this with his associate.

Dr. Barry Taff and Kerry Gaynor arrived at the 11547 Braddock Dr. Culver City home on August 22, 1974. Doris Bither, a petite woman, in her 30s greeted them. Doris Bither lived in the small home with her six year-old daughter and her three sons. Her daughter was six years old, and her boys were ten, thirteen and sixteen.

The house at the time was in shambles. Squalid living conditions and a tumultuous relationship between the mother and male children is what investigative team observed upon their first visit. The investigators reported a feeling of overpressure in their ears while being inside the home. According to Taff, the house was twice condemned by the city.

From what is known, Doris Bither suffered abuse from her parents as well as had several abusive relationships with men. There was obvious tension between the three young boys and the mother. The psychodynamics of the home were extremely negative. It seems that the boys, especially the eldest, would harbor some dark and resentful feelings towards their mother. The unconscious mind that is troubled by a physically or verbally abusive environment and negative upbringing is like a lightning rod to paranormal activities. Either attracting poltergeist activity or psychosomatically creating it.

Doris Bither claimed that spirits would physically attack her. The reports ranged from Doris walking around her home and bumping into the ghosts, to actual spectral rape. Of course, Taff and Gaynor were skeptical of all this. Ghost apparitions are a hard thing to prove and collect evidence for (from a scientific perspective). “Ghostly rape” is even harder to believe. It was not until they saw the bruises in her inner thighs and all over her body, as well as people outside the family corroborating by testifying that they had also seen apparitions that both investigators started to take heed as to what Doris was saying. Doris claimed that the ghosts were of Asian men. The children, also saw these beings. The visions were so frequent that they children dubbed one of the more prominent ghost as “Mr. Whose-it.”

The claim of rape by these beings is one of the most interesting aspects of the case. Doris Bither reported that two of the beings were the smallest ones and would hold her down while the biggest or tallest one of them would rape her. Dori’s eldest son would admit to seeing her mother being tossed around the room. In one instance he tried to intervene and was thrown across the room by the unseen force.

To both investigators, this must have been the most bizarre claim to date. How can you prove “spectral rape” or even claim it? it would seem that a person would have to be insane to even admit this. The team decided to setup shop and brought in high-speed cameras and photographers as well as other investigators to help capture something on tape. In a famous report, all investigators and equipment, as well as Doris, were in the small bedroom. Cramped and anxious to see any paranormal activities, they decided to have Doris conjure up the beings by having her call them. Doris began swearing and yelling at the spirits while 30 or so investigators were crammed in her room.
To much surprise, lights started manifesting around the room. As Doris kept provoking the beings, a greenish mist started to form in a corner. As if it was coiling, the green mist started swirling and growing. Within seconds the form of a man’s upper torso started to become visible in the mist. Very large and a lot of muscles is what they reported seeing. The torso of the being did not show facial details, but did show the investigators musculature. From what they gathered, this was a male entity. An investigator soon fainted after seeing this.

No matter how many high-speed cameras were setup to capture this, or that the team even had professional camera men present; none of this ever came out on film. The pictures only shows what appears to be a free floating arc light in the middle of the room as well as some light orbs. The most famous and incredible of these photographs is the one that shows Doris sitting on a bed, investigators surrounding her and the free floating arc of light in the middle of the picture. What’s incredible and equally unbelievable is that the arc of light appears smooth, even though this is a room with corners and one would expect bends in the arc as when someone uses a projector to display an image and the image hits corners in a room. The image will bend. The photographic evidence produce by the team shows the arc of light floating above Doris Bither with no bends, even though behind it, we see the room’s corner.

Dr. Taff also reported that the eldest son would go on a say that the activities intensified when ever he played certain music. Black Sabbath & Uriah Heep were the albums played. The songs that mention or were about devil worshiping is what seemed to upset the poltergeist. Asking the boy to play the songs in question, Dr. Taff did observe that the lights and orbs did increase.

The investigative team observed lights and poltergeist activity for about two and a half months. As time went by, the activities decreased.

It is important to point out a few factors in this case; Doris’ addiction to alcohol and her being abusive and belligerent almost on a daily basis, as well her unwillingness to seek help for her abuse and deal properly with it. Because of her refusal to properly deal with her own psychotic issues, I believe that her energy and the energy in her home manifested itself as poltergeist phenomenon.

We have to take into consideration that the paranormal activities were extremely powerful only when Doris was present in the home. Doris almost always in a drunken stupor seemed to be the center of it all. While intoxicated, Doris would attract the phenomenon almost on queue. There were times when she was present with the team and was not under the influence of alcohol that the poltergeist did not manifest itself. Which we can only conclude that when Doris’ mind was clouded and her inhibitions minimized, her psychic kinetic energy took over.

It is not a far stretch of imagination to say that there were some very concerning underlying themes in this case. Let’s take for example how Doris claimed that there were three entities that attacked her. These entities controlled her life and to some extent oppressed her. It will not be a stretch, from a psychological stand point, that these entities could have been a physical manifestation of the relationship Doris had with her own three sons. From the reports of Dr. Taff, we know that her relationship with her sons was not a Norman Rockwell painting. As I discuss this event with my fiancee, she makes a very good and intelligent point: Doris had suffered abuse almost all her life. The fact that she abused alcohol and self-medicated to avoid the post-traumatic stress from her abuse could have had a metaphysical effect in her life.

My fiancee has the following thoughts. One, Doris Bither could have been extremely psychic or “sensitive”. Doris could have had a great talent, but her own refusal to deal with her past abuse and the fact that she self-medicated and kept her mind clouded did not let her use that talent. Instead, because of her addiction and self hate, she could have manifested this poltergeist as another way (besides the alcohol) of attacking herself.

My fiancee is an intelligent person, and extremely gifted in psychiatry. Especially abnormal psychology. It is from her, that I take the following theories:

Doris Bither and her sons (especially the eldest) could have been psychic. It is well known that parents sometimes pass down their psychic abilities to their kids. In other words, psychic parents produce psychic kids. If the parent was psychic, and the kids were psychic, the tumultuous relationship in the home could have produced a staggering amount of psychic kinetic energy. Enough energy to physically manifest poltergeist activity. The feelings that Dori’s kids could have had against her and her addiction can be represented by the Hephaestus Syndrome. Hephaestus being the Greek god of fire and metallurgy, was kicked off Mount Olympus by his abusive mother. Hephaestus held a very turbulent relationship with his mother. Chaos and love combined in a love/hate relationship.

The same way Doris’ sons could have had a relationship with Doris. A strong love/hate relationship fueled by past abuse, alcohol and psychic abilities is a powerful concoction for poltergeist or psychic kinetic energy. We can formulate this manifestation of the “spectral rape” by Doris’ description of her attackers: two of the smaller entities held her down, while the biggest one raped her. We can speculate that the Bither household was very unstable. Her coming-of-age son (the biggest one of her three sons) was probably harboring some resentful feelings towards his mother and her lifestlye. She in turn, saw her son as another man in her life trying to control her or attack her; therefore in turn subconsciously materializing the rape or attack on herself and using her current feelings and occupants in the house as the basis for the rape. This would not corroborate with her son testifying that he was too attacked and thrown across a room, but psychic kinetic energy can be powerful enough to affect physical objects from what I’ve studied.

Another theory my fiancee mention could be that Doris Bither could have attracted 3 evil spirits into her life. It could be argued that Doris Bither could have been abused by three influential men in her life (father, uncle, grandfather or someone she trusted). The combination of her self-medicating and having psychic abilities as well as self-loathing could have made her into an attractive victim to malevolent forces. Her turbulent lifestyle and energy as well as her kid’s energy could very well have manifested her feelings into something very evil in a metaphysical level. Post-traumatic Stress Syndrome and psychic abilities can have a great effect one a person. A person that does not know about their abilities and/or is under the influence of a drug can have a great effect on their surrounding environment. Take into consideration the infamous “Bell Witch” haunting.

The Bell Witch Haunting is an old legend. In 1817, John Bell reporting poltergeist phenomenon. The case was made famous by the reports of then General Andrew Jackson (who later became president of the U.S). John Bell’s daughter, Betsy Bell, was at the center of this haunting. She was physically attacked by the ghost(s). There is a theory floating out there that the child was extremely psychic and had suffered from sexual abuse (possibly from her father). Accounts of levitation, spectral noises and disembodied voices were reported. The theory states that all this phenomenon could have been produced by Betsy Bell herself. Living in an unpleasant environment and seeking help, she started to manifest these attacks.

After Doris Bither left her Culver City home, the phenomenon was ceased to exist in the house. Future residents of the house have not reported anything out of the ordinary. The house remains to this day ghost free and is in good conditions.

Dr. Barry Taff reported that Doris Bither moved from Culver City to Carson CA. From Carson to San Bernadino CA, and from San Bernadino to Texas and finally back to San Bernardino. While jumping around the two states, Doris reported that the phenomenon “followed” her and her family to every place they moved to. Feeding the notion that the poltergeist phenomenon was a manifestation of her unstable environment and mind. He also reports that her psychological state is made apparent when she reported being impregnated by the ghost. Medical test showed her to not be pregnant but suffering from an ectopic or hysterical pregnancy.

No one can say for sure what could have been going on with the family in that small Culver City house. Since Doris Bither has not been heard of since the late 80s or 90s (depending on some reports) and her kids have not come forward, we cannot know for certain.

I remember that movie a "little" too well. Shocked It goes to show you that no matter how much they shove into a movie is its never as informative as the real story/ book <not saying this is fake just an example).

The Jackie Hernandez Story


San Pedro California Haunting *Video Proof?

This case began in early 1989 when I received a phone call from Susan Castenada, a woman who claimed that her close friend, Jackie Hernandez (whose maiden name was appropriately, Hazard), was being troubled by ghosts. However, at this early stage, Jackie was excessively concerned about the possibility that we would automatically assume she was crazy and so she would not allow us to meet or speak with her. Adding to the emotional turmoil and frenzy was the fact that Jackie was pregnant with her second child from her estranged husband in a made-in-hell marriage.

We did not hear from Susan or Jackie again until August of that year when Jackie finally gathered up the courage to call me and allowed us to pay her a visit. As we approached Jackie's little, turn-of-the century bungalow in a seedy, run-down area of San Pedro, we had no way of knowing that this case would alter all of our lives in ways we could never imagine.

Accompanying me on the evening of August 8, 1989 was professional videographer Barry Conrad who had been working with me for about eighteen months, Jeff Wheatcraft, a highly skeptical still-photographer and long-time friend and associate of Conrad's, Beth Shatsky, a local photo-journalist, and Larry Brooks, a close friend.

Upon meeting and finally interviewing Jackie at length, it was apparent that she had endured a very intense, hectic life. In fact, in many ways her background and psychological profile were almost identical to that of Doris in The Entity case; a quintessential poltergeist agent (PGA). In other words, Jackie was depressed and anxiety ridden. She had intense generalized anger, distress, pent-up hostilities, massive unresolved emotional conflicts, and a history of emotional abuse in a dysfunctional family environment wherein Jackie was the black sheep. If Jackie had been wound any tighter and more distressed, she would surely have been under a psychiatrist’s care. I believe that Mr. Spock from Star Trek fame would have summed up Jackie’s personality as “A mass of conflicting impulses.”

Immediately upon entering Jackie's house we were overwhelmed by an intense putrid stench of decomposing organic matter and a strong sense of overpressure.....like being at the bottom of a very deep pool at several atmospheres. Interestingly, both of these sensations were present at the onset of The Entity investigation.

While taking a tour of her small, disheveled home and talking with several other witnesses, we kept hearing what sounded like a 200 pound rat running around the attic, an area where Jackie had allegedly seen the disembodied apparitional head of an old man and heard muffled voices some months earlier. We checked out the rather large attic, but found nothing that could account for the loud, recurring noises. We were also told of several incidents where large quantities of water spewed from a two-by-four in the corner of the dinning room as if a garden hose were somehow attached.

We observed a peculiar, viscous liquid dripping down from the inside of the dining room cupboards and we put some in a plastic sample bag. Analysis by a local forensic lab determined it was male, human blood plasma with a heavy iodine and copper content that was strongly oxidized. Jackie related how various pieces of furniture--lamps, children's toys, chairs, framed paintings, etc.--were violently thrown about the house.

Additionally, cans of Pepsi were thrown about and were frequently hurled directly at her. There were numerous instances where electrical appliances behaved as if they had a mind of their own -- for instance, the TV would turn itself on but would be unable to obtain reception.

Jackie's most dramatic claim was the observation of male apparitions. One night while she was pregnant and on her way to the bathroom, she saw a gnarled old man. On several other occasions, she saw another old man sitting at her dining room table. This was not the same man whose head she had earlier seen in the attic. According to Jackie, this apparition was an elderly man in his late fifties or early sixties, wearing a plaid shirt and 1950's-style gasoline station attendant high-water pants. He had a sunken, emaciated look with large peering eyes. Considering an artist's rendering that was drawn from Jackie's description, the image bore a striking resemblance to a very gaunt Ernest Borgnine.

Shortly after this last apparitional sighting, Jackie came close to losing her life while sleeping on the living room floor with Susan Castenada. They slept in the living room to avoid the continual onslaught of phenomena in the bedrooms. A strange, dense, brightly luminous cloud appeared over Jackie's head and began suffocating her. As she started choking in her sleep, the sound awoke Susan who observed the hovering cloud and pulled Jackie out from under it to safety.

After completing the initial interview we began wrapping up and were about ready to go when Larry Brooks casually suggested to Wheatcraft that he go back up into the attic and shoot a few more photographs, just in case anything showed up. Although still very skeptical about the entire situation, Wheatcraft agreed and went to climb back through the tiny crawl space located above the laundry room at the back of the house. After a few minutes, we heard a loud thud and Wheatcraft flew down out of the attic as if the devil himself were on his tail. When Wheatcraft came into the living room where the rest of us were talking, he was literally drained of all color and shaking intensely.

He told us that something had forcefully grabbed his 35 mm. camera and wrenched it from his hands while he was shooting. Considering that this statement came from Wheatcraft, the ardent disbeliever, was rather impressive, even though the rest of us did not witness the event ourselves.

Immediately we again went up into the attic and found Wheatcraft's expensive camera. We discovered that whatever agency pulled the camera from his hands had neatly detached the lens from its body and placed both pieces down on opposite ends of the attic, some fifteen feet apart, all without damaging them. The camera's body lay in a fruit box and the lens on the floor.

While examining the attic in even greater detail and finding nothing to account for what happened to Wheatcraft and his camera, Wheatcraft was suddenly and violently pushed across the attic by an unseen force. Conrad, who was right in front of Wheatcraft with his video camera, witnessed the event and described it as if a very large, invisible hand had shoved Wheatcraft in his back, vaulting him forward. Wheatcraft suffered actual injuries that required medical attention.

At this point we decided to call it a night as the phenomena began to settle down. Needless to say, we certainly did not expect anything to occur during our visit, so the loud pounding noises and Wheatcraft's experiences were a welcome change from the boring tedium experienced while investigating most cases. Except, of course for Wheatcraft.

On September 4th, Jackie called Conrad at midnight complaining of intense activity. Conrad, Wheatcraft and photographer/assistant Gary Boehm arrived shortly together. (Due to a massive heart attack suffered by my father, I was temporarily sidelined for several months during the course of this investigation and as such could not attend several expeditions to Jackie's original house.)

During this visit, small and sometimes large corpuscular masses of light were seen in the laundry room and later in the attic. These optical apparitions were preceded by strange snapping noises and the sounds of heavy breathing, which eventually led Gary to the area below the attic crawl space. While Wheatcraft was again examining the attic in a desperate effort to determine what happened to him on August 8th, something unseen violently attacked him.

According to Wheatcraft, he was walking towards the crawl space where Gary was about to descend, when suddenly he felt a restriction around his neck pulling him up and to his left. As the force tightened its grasp around Wheatcraft's neck, he let out a loud yell or moan that alerted Gary as to his plight. Being a trained photographer, Gary turned toward the direction of Wheatcraft's voice and fired off several shots of his 35 mm. camera while rushing to his aid. The only light available to Gary was the camera’s flash.

Apparently, something had wrapped a plastic clothesline around Wheatcraft's neck, severely tightened it and pulled him up over a large nail extending away from a rafter in the attic's ceiling. The force behind the attempted hanging threw Wheatcraft's glasses off, sent him into momentary shock and rendered him unconscious. As Gary eventually got Wheatcraft down off the nail he discovered that Jeff’s eyes to be glazed over and suffering from deep rope burns in his neck. We later determined that the knot tied in the clothesline was a bowline or "seaman's knot" which none of us knew anything about prior to this event. (See Photo 5)

One thing we did know was that if it had not been for Gary, in all likelihood, Wheatcraft would have died from a broken neck. After attempting to bring Wheatcraft back down to reality and calm his nerves, Conrad and Gary went back up into the attic to search for what almost hung Wheatcraft. Nothing unusual was discovered.

Following this terrifying event, Wheatcraft had to face the disturbing contradiction generated by his otherworldly ordeal. He previously had absolutely no belief whatsoever in paranormal phenomena, and now he had to deal with the fact that a direct encounter almost took his life. Wheatcraft's behavior did not demonstrate any immediate changes apart from the stress resulting from the encounter. However, for good reason he never again returned to Jackie's San Pedro house.

During one of the numerous visits that followed without Wheatcraft, an immense ball of light appeared behind Conrad after which he suddenly lost consciousness for no apparent reason. In fact, Conrad himself did not directly observe the light as it appeared behind his back. Susan, Jackie and others witnessed it.

Another peculiar aspect of this investigation was the fact that our equipment, whether high-quality video cameras, tape decks, thermal imaging devices, 35 mm. SLR cameras or audio recording equipment, would mysteriously malfunction as if the internal electronics were neutralized. Even though we always arrived with freshly charged or new battery packs, most of our systems would inevitably shut down. This type of effect is actually quite common in our investigations.

One noteworthy event in particular was when Beth Shatsky's mini-35 mm. Nikon camera began shaking for no apparent reason while in my hands. I put the camera down on the kitchen table on top of an overturned drinking glass and watched it rapidly rock back and forth while Conrad captured the event on video.

What was not seen by the naked eye, but caught by Conrad's video camera, was the appearance of a small yellow-orange mass of light speeding through the readout window of the Nikon from no apparent source. Later analysis revealed that the diminutive ball of light was the image of a middle-aged man's head, displaying a receding hair line and large dark eyes.


Scary stuff.Makes you wonder why this happens to some people and not to others.

This is more of a case in psychology then parapsychology. The incident in San Padro is much better since there is better pictorial evidence (Jeff having a wire wrapped around his neck and then strangled).
