The Haunting in Connecticut: In 1986, the Snedeker family (Allen and Carmen, and their three sons, daughter, and two nieces) moved into a simple white duplex rental home in Southington, CT, that had at one time had been a funeral home. In the basement, they found various mortuary toys, including a hoisting apparatus for coffins, a medical gurney, blood drains, and toe tags. Soon enough, the Snedekers were reporting all kinds of evil, including sexual attacks, apparitions, and abrupt, violent personality changes in the oldest son, who was undergoing treatments for Hodgkin’s disease. Ed and Lorraine Warren, the Connecticut demonologists who were involved in the infamous Amityville Horror case, investigated the house and officially proclaimed it “possessed,” and then launched a major media campaign around it.
