El Centro House –
Place - El Centro House
Located in Los Angeles, California, on El
This Haunted home is an old Spanish-style,
well-kept, one floor house, built in a quiet neighborhood.
The C Family immigrated from France to Los
Angeles in the 1960s. The couple's two eldest daughters lived in
this house first, but moved out to their own places, when their
parents and younger sister, Martine, arrived from France to live in
this L.A. house. The dining room was turned into a bedroom and her
parents slept in the master bedroom.
Mrs. C, who had psychic abilities, felt a strong presence of
someone unseen watching her during her first evening in their new
home. Maritine also felt this and they soon realized that they were
never "alone" in the house.
One night, a noise in the kitchen woke Mrs. C up and when she
looked up, she saw a see-through young man, who was standing
between her and her husband's beds. She yelled and the ghost
disappeared. She called up her two older daughters, who also
confirmed having the same ghostly visitor when they had lived at
- Nightly visits of the young, male ghost continued on a nightly
basis. When a see-through, young woman joined the see-through young
man, Mrs. C decided it was time to consult a professional medium,
PSYCHIC RESEARCH & OUTCOME:
After Ms. Crenshaw made contact with the
ghostly young couple, the truth of their suicide in the house was
made known and later confirmed by looking at the appropriate
records. What to do? The C family didn't want to move, or to
continue to share the small house with the unhappy, ghostly duo.
So, Mrs. C prayed fervently and relentlessly for several weeks for
the spiritual release of the unhappy pair. Then, one night, the
young male ghost appeared to apparently give her credit for all her
efforts, and then disappeared for good. The result of Mrs. C's
praying was that the ghostly couple was finally able to vacate the
house, and the C family had peace and quiet at last.
