    Ghost Hunter Wielding Shotgun, Sword, & Bible Breaks Into Haunted ‘Welles House’

    Given the chance, most of us would try to be ghost hunters. We can all admit that the idea of kicking down the door to a haunted house, shotgun in one hand, bible in the other, ready to go toe-to-toe with whatever evil phantasm lurks behind the plywood-sealed doors is pretty cool. Maybe you’re wearing a long duster, maybe you have a holy necklace passed down through the generations. Maybe your grandfather gave you the necklace on your thirteenth birthday and said “When the time comes, you’ll know what to do.” Or maybe, like 33-year-old Anthony Parker of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, you’ve got a pry-bar and a Crown Royal bag filled with shotgun shells.

    According to the Citizen’s Voice, Mr. Parker was arrested in the early morning of Wednesday June, 27 for breaking into the infamous and allegedly haunted “Welles house” in Wilkes-Barre. Police were called to the scene by a witness who reported someone prying the plywood off the back door of the haunted house. When they arrived, the police found Parker with a 24 inch sword on his back, bladed brass knuckles and a pocket knife in his pocket, the hilarious-yet-useful Crown Royal bag of shells, and a bible. Parker denied that he had a shotgun on him, but police found a pistol-gripped shotgun stashed behind the Welles house. When questioned about his motives for the attempted break-in, Anthony Parker said he was there “to look for ghosts.”

    Did he learn nothing from Ghostbusters? You need more gadgets than a Crown Royal bag full of buckshot.

    If any haunted house warranted bringing an arsenal and pretending to be John Constantine, the Welles house fits the bill. The house garnered the nickname “Pennsylvania’s Amityville Horror” In the 1970’s, and apparently lived up to the name. Built in 1860 by Augusts C. Laning, the property at 49 South Welles st has been the subject of many alleged hauntings and paranormal events: spots of blood appearing on walls, mysterious scratches showing up on residents’ arms, a tin box discovered bricked up in the basement containing human molars and chicken bones in the shape of a cross. In the 1800’s a man walking by the house allegedly dropped dead, which may have been a heart attack, but any heart attack in front of a haunted house is a spooky heart attack.

    Anthony Parker, the amateur ghost hunter in the most literal sense, was charged with defiant trespassing, possessing instruments of a crime, weapons possession, possessing an offensive weapon and prowling at night time. His bail is set at $25,000.

    Definitely a job for the ol’ sword and shotgun combo.

    You’ve got to give him credit. Most would-be ghost hunters might take a camera, maybe a talisman of some sort if they’re really serious, never even considering they might get into a shooting war with the ghosts. Not Anthony Parker, he was armed to the teeth and ready for war from beyond the grave. Of course most, if not all of his weapons would be absolutely useless against incorporeal entities. Next time, Anthony, bring a magic sword.

    Obviously a lunatic, who in their right mind thinks a shotgun is going to be useful against spirits? Yea, that's the first thing I'd think of, a shot gun; not holy water, salt, silver bullets, wolfs bane, garlic, or a rabbit's foot.

    Well, I don't know how well a rabbit's foot will save anyone, I don't believe in the effectiveness of holy water either, I mean what happened before Christianity and the invention of holy water?...What was used before that or did the evil spirits have free rein until Christianity came along?...Silver bullets for werewolves, none here, not sure what you do with wolf's bane?...What about talcum powder?...

    I have no objections to talcum powder. Certainly isn't as well known for bringing good luck, since a rabbits foot is supposed to give you fleetness of feet, which may come in handy considering a shotgun, sword, or whatever else just cannot be effective on people whom are already dead. Probably OCS pepper spray would be the best weapon. Have you ever gotten hit with that stuff?

    Talcum powder makes me wonder what some Cocaine dust would do? Maybe the ghosts would seem to be less problematic afterwards?

    Well you see now, talcum powder has quite a number of uses, when one is quietly roaming around in an abandoned insane asylum looking for ghosts, it would be good to shake a bit of talcum in common walkways, just to make sure someone isn't creeping around in there with you whether it be a Class 3 humanoid entity or another human leaving footprints...:ph8:

    Slimers leave goo around no footprints although talcum powder could temporarily blind a slimer if a handful is tossed in its face, could make for a quick getaway if the slimer is a nasty one...:ohmy8:

    Otherwise, a bit of talcum powder on the soles of the feet is always refreshing when doing a lot of walking, for some a couple squirts down the drawers on a humid day, I'll pass on the latter one though...:cool8:

    I think the idea is you're supposed to use it in cooking but not entirely sure and sounds like it may have some sort of counter werewolf effect. I tossed it in to be on the safe side, so pretty much falls in the same category of rabbits feet; stupid and silly but ....?

    Ah here it is, sounds very effective if you can get the wolf to eat it...

    Lets say you are on the hunt for a werewolf and are looking for ways to kill the beast. There are many ways to destroy a werewolf and the use of wolfsbane is one of those ways.

    As its name clearly shows us, this plant so isn’t wolf friendly; it is a very deadly poison. When mixed with bait and devoured by a wolf, or even put on arrowheads, knives, swords…etc. and then fired or stabbed into the animal’s body, this toxin is fatal.

    Thanks, that's interesting, maybe something I had rattling around from American History, and not toxicology as one would reasonably imagine. Records show that people confessed openly to being witches and werewolves, and of course they had these potions they would drink and smear on their bodies at group meetings; obviously we are talking gate way drugs, as in excuses for sexual escapades since it could then all be blamed on the devil.

    "Aconite was supposedly an ingredient used by witches for magical ointments. This poison could for sure cause tingling on the skin followed by numbness and it could also cause hallucinations."

    Apparantly wolfsbane is also good for preventing shapeshifting...

    Wolfsbane has traditionally been used to protect homes from werewolves and can be used to prevent shape shifting.

    Bundles of wolfsbane could be placed around barns and pastures to protect livestock from predators (taking care that the livestock have no access to it lest they be killed themselves).

    Because of its baneful nature, it could be used in sympathetic magic to bring harm to another by creating "elf bolts" of sharpened flint dipped in wolfsbane juice and piercing a poppet for the victim with them.

    Maybe @Rikki has some tips on using wolfsbane... @The shadow

    I will start by saying wolfsbane is highly Toxic. One should wear gloves when harvesting. And do not eat it! Only a skilled priestess or warlock should attempt it. Wolfsbane can be fatal! So please don't try to harvest it.

    Wolfsbane also has no effect on Ghost. It is mainly used in oathbound protection rituals. While I can not say how , I can tell you that it was used in the preparation of my Daughters Athene.



    If a ghost haunts a dwelling I would determine if it was friendly or hostile.

    A friendly entity would receive a ritual of welcome. Should the ghost choose not to move on it would be welcomed warmly. With gifts and love.

    If hostile it would be given two choices. Leave or be expelled. The ritual of expulsion is long and taxing. The main component is salt. It acts as a sealant. Sun stones are placed in the windows.

    Black tourmaline Is good for absorbing the negative power of the entity. Rose quartz is also used as absorbing the negative energy. Finally white sage incense is burned. The chant is made in each room. The pentacle is inscribed upon the doors to the dwelling. A simple example is included. The Ritual is best done by a high priestess or grand warlock. It is to be done skyclad and under the light of the full moon.

    It is my hope I bring understanding.

    Blessed be

    Rikki

    The Bible is not a good choice when confronting dark powers. Unless you have a strong faith. It is your own domination that makes a ghost leave. Expulsions are done using the Bible, the Koran or any other holy tome. Just know if you go into a haunting waving a Bible around and have nothing to back it up. you just have a book.

    Yes! As a High Priestess And leader of my coven I have given my self to Serve others, and to the Divine. I have Sent ghost on to their rest and to seek the light within themselves this finally allows the sprit to rest. I have seen and communed with the fey. I have removed dark forces. And helped dispose of Ouija boards. (a fair warning Ouija is VERY dangerous! )
    I never charge for a expulsion. If money is offered I ask it be given to the poor and needy.
    Finally I was deeply moved by my own daughters asking to follow me into the faith. My husband and I chose from the start to allow our children to believe as they chose to allow them to grow up without any input from us in matters of faith.
    To believe as they wished. To love who they choose to love. When we are gone we leave them with a great gift. They grew up to be the person they were meant to be. And not the person we made them be.
    Blessed Be
    Rikki
