Even though you don’t find a lot of haunted houses on the streets, Pittsburgh home is one of the few real-life haunted houses. Some of them have poltergeists and have played host to an actual demonic possession. The Pittsburgh demon house has some of the most terrible tales that have ever been written.
How did the house become cursed?
Bob Crammer lived in this house for nearly two decades before writing the book The Demon of Brownsville Road. Legend has it that the land was allegedly the site of a Native American massacre in the 1700s. The property was cursed due to the mass murder committed on the site the house was built on. This is likely the cause of the ghostly activities associated with this house. Moreover, Crammer claims that these supernatural activities got worse in 1909. A worker constructing the house placed a curse on the land because he was jealous the original owner H.P Malick had a beautiful wife. And also Malick owed him money.
The house was allegedly used by an alcoholic doctor to perform hundreds of abortions.
It is believed that a doctor rented this house to perform illegal abortions. How does this fit into the already cursed nature of the home? According to Bob Cranmer, a Catholic “intuitive” named Connie Valenti was a reincarnated spirit of one of the aborted children, who was born to fight evil.
The family received a suspiciously good deal on their new home.
Even though the house on Brownsville Road was an ideal home, Cranmer admits that he should have been suspicious about the house the moment it came on the market. It was almost as though the house was waiting for him. Cranmer claims the house went on sale as soon as he started looking. The seller immediately accepted his offer. The family grew increasingly tense because paranormal activities started as soon as the family moved in. On his first walk through with the family, one of his sons disappeared who was later found crying on the staircase, as though something had happened to him.
The Cranmers family believed that they were simply living with a ghost.
Cranmer claims that within weeks of moving in, they found the house in disarray now and then. Waking up to blood dripping from the walls, running water, lights turned on, hearing ghostly pounding and footsteps walking through the hallway. Ryan Buell from A&E’s Paranormal State caught the brunt of the demonic presence, a blood-like substance that materialized on the walls.”
Something always felt off about the blue room.
The blue room became uninhabitable. The room was referred to as such because it had blue wallpaper and a blue rug. The room was an epicenter of the house’s evil and always made them feel uncomfortable.
The evil manifested itself as a demon named Molech.
According to Cranmer’s book, a shadowy creature lunged out at you if you passed by its layer. Cranmer’s grandson passed by the room one night on his way to the kitchen after which he was “shaking like a leaf” saying “monster, the monster will get me.”
This was a demon on the move.
According to Cranmer’s book, Molech doesn’t only stay in the Blue Room, waiting to haunt people. Scratches started to appear on almost every member of the family, and it wasn’t only when they crossed paths of the Blue Room. Molech spent its nights bumping through the crawl spaces that sectioned off the home.
The family tried to fight back, and the Pittsburgh church was heavily involved in this.
Cranmer and his family lived in the house for 18 years. They tried a variety of ways to fight back but achieved little or no results. The main course of action was to read passages of the Bible and the family started wearing crosses around their necks to protect themselves. However, when the demonic activity in the house became too much to handle, he got in touch with a Bishop in the city.
Is the house still under demonic influence?
Bob Cranmer spent a lot of time dealing with the demonic entity. The haunting, however, reached its fever pitch in 2005 and 2006. As of 2014, Bob Cranmer was still living in the house. In an interview with WRNR radio, Cranmer said that everyone is doing “fine,” and that his grandchildren even sleep in the house.
