The Haunting of Loey Lane
How weird is this for you right now pretty, weird yeah maybe. It's about to get a whole lot weirder Oh God. This. Week on BuzzFeed unsolved, we once again make a house call as part of our ongoing investigation. Into the question are ghosts. Real. This. Time around we answer the call of Lois Lane a popular, beauty guru who you may recognize from, YouTube. Chloe has asked us to help diagnose, a haunting, that's terrorized, her since, 2017. A haunting. That has her scared to, sleep in her corner from. Guru to boom, rule. That. Is. Really. Out you've. Outdone yourself this time and I say this right up top I know when we did our last house call sort, of took a back seat I was very respectful not. Tonight baby you not believe this going into it I'm sure she believes, that she saw a little. Spooky guy, in a sheet I think I should just get a life-sized, Shane, doll with a pull string I would, say it's, the way I'm, sure they believed they saw what they saw and I'll just keep calling this I believe you believe. We're. Just staring at the corner of the wall I believe you believe let's. Get into it in April, 2017. Lois. Lane moved into an apartment complex in, Los Angeles California the, complex, a fairly new and nondescript, building doesn't. Seem to offer any explanation from. The outside, as to why strange, and unexplainable, things occur, within but. Before we jump into what's happening in the present let's, first take a look at the past I, am. A believer, who. Wishes occasionally. That I was a skeptic and I think it's because I grew up with it I told you a little bit that I grew up in a really haunted, farmhouse. In the middle of nowhere in Georgia, so it's, been like my whole life of experiencing, stuff I'm not so nice, perfectly. Normal. I guess so, yeah no I totally believe in ghosts though he grew accustomed to, the farmhouse hauntings, of her youth quote, I feel like I've always had experience, I've always been really in tune with stuff so I'm used to paranormal happenings. Pretty frequently, and quote, this, distinction, is important, to point out due to the fact that it contextualizes. Lowest present experiences, ghosts. Have never scared loi their ubiquity, throughout Louis formative years only normalize, their existence, which is why what's occurring now is so troubling, because you see whatever is happening to Loic currently, is quote, the first thing that's ever made me feel scared, end quote, so. She is, basically, she, has a sixth, sense is what you're saying she doesn't have a Bruce Willis are we the Bruce Willis in this situation. Are. We being Willis, are, we going there to actually diagnose, something are we going there to help to, cleanse or are we going there to, maybe stir the pot a little bit more and leave a disaster, behind I. Love. A little stirring I. Know you got your little chef's hat on yes I'm stirring you, maybe put the spoon in it. Why. Would you come to us if you want us to fix it, you've. Seen her a show I'm guessing I guess there's like this thick. Part of me that kind of hopes it's not real in hopes that there could be an explanation for everything granted, it's also been going on for years and years and years and multiple. People have witnessed it this brings us to the beginning of Louis, current, haunting, in. 2017. LOI, and her two roommates moved, into their three-bedroom los, angeles apartment, where quote things got spooky, pretty fast, end quote this might be due to LOI always attracting, this sort of energy since she was a child but perhaps one, event in particular is the catalyst, my you so like hunt.
And Shop and all of these little thrift stories and I found this really old like vintage. 100. Year old Ouija, board that was like wood and like totally scratched up looked really creepy so we took her home it was just part of my creepy aesthetic, at the time and although it was merely for decoration, and never actually used, though, he believes it's this purchase that set off a weird chain of events quote. It started, off small and it felt like things I could write off saying, shadows move out of the corner of my eye. Quote and in, general, LOI describes, an energy, that was quote just, really overwhelmingly. Bad a really, bad feeling all the, time, end quote we go to so many locations, and people, like. You can do anything, at these locations but, they all seem to have a rule, there, like one. Thing you don't do is bring a Ouija board in, here well I don't think are you crazy, it's. A toy well, here's the thing I don't think they're actually making a commentary, on the board itself I think they're making a commentary, on what the board represents, the board represents, reaching out and represents selling toys to children oh no it represents. Calling, out and inviting, maybe, negative, entities, to come into your home LOI also was having trouble sleeping a new experience for someone who normally slept, soundly for eight hours every night of her life quote, I could barely sleep at night and woke up frequently, out of a dead sleep by something I couldn't see or explain, which, I know can be ridden off by a lot of people and. I. Was. Just about to go into my little you wrote it off is that you sending it you. Didn't even mail it. Just. Think if you put it in the envelope you put. That down oh yeah then you're like now you close the letter that stamp. On it you gotta make sure you got a stamp on it. Give. It a little kiss before you send it off. Bye. Well, admittedly sleep, paralysis is, the first thing that comes to mind even to low yourself, ultimately, it felt really. Weird especially in this time frame where other like really weird things were happening later I was waking up with like giant bruises on my legs and I had no account. For them bruises, aren't as easy to explain, away with sleep paralysis yet. There's still wiggle room when experienced that definitely can't be explained by sleep paralysis LOI. Watching, quote a heavy, drinking, glass slowly inch off of her counter, and shatter, on the floor end quote, she, got video with that she's. Not oh what. Do you just have I guess yeah who's, got a something. In their pocket that could possibly record video well, I mean like I know. Something that's slowly, inching, not a lot of time, slowly. Inching. How could you possibly ever what if she's charging, her phone in the room oh you're, right well I will say that if this happened, to me yeah if the glass fell out in my house the next day I would have a system. On the table 20 static cameras set up in my house at all times and they could all be remotely. Operated by a button but you know not. Everyone attacks. These things with, the Moxie that I do yeah you're an entrepreneurial. Paranormal. Investigator. I'm insane, so this, is the kitchen great counter space in here thank.
You I'd kill for this how thrilling is it to be in your kitchen pitch-black with flashlights, I can't, say you've ever done it before, voluntarily. But you, know here we are hello. For. Anything that's in this room anything, that resides in this building my name is Ryan I'm Shane. I'm. Lois I would hope you know her yeah already we're pretty well acquainted we're, guests, here much, like you are I hope you I'm, sure you hate hearing that you are a guest here I think, there's plenty of people that reside within this home I think some are nice and some aren't and I'm talking, to all of them I'm giving, you the opportunity to talk to us so if there's anything that you want to say to us so, show, us a sign you want to communicate you can you, could say something you, could touch, one of us pull, my teeth out, or. You can do that so. Here we go I'm gonna give you some silence right here and that. Starts right now. After this LOI this, is the part where you learn. How truly, boring, it, is to be a ghost hunter it's a lot of weeding here, we go and I find the work fulfilling, ah okay. Sorry about that. Having. Some trouble with your flashlight I'm doing great. How. About this nice glass. Smash. It over his head I was gonna say slide it off that oh yeah or just slide, it off the counter either one would be pretty, incredible this counter, is pretty level. Showtime. And if you think by not doing anything you're gonna get rid of us I got, some bad news for you you better get use to this, ugly mug because I'm gonna be here all night long, okay used to that ugly mug get used to seeing these dead, cold, eyes peer. Into, your soulless, soul they're. Not pleasant are they. Too. Rotten little eyeballs, but. While the arrival, of the Ouija board is what prompted the odd occurrences. Its its departure, that is perhaps the most unsettling, mainly. Because shortly after its arrival the Ouija board vanished, without explanation. It wasn't, until three months later that LOI finally, found it neatly tucked, under, three stacked moving, bins is, it possible, that your brother could have hid it and lied to you is your brother a liar oh. He's. Probably watching this so I. Don't, think, that he would have done anything like that especially. My. Brother is so not fond, of like, again the darker, side of this I just don't see him touching, it while the board's disappearance. And reappearance would. Remain a question, in lowey's mind one, question, became clearer if, the Ouija board did introduce, an entity, into her home what. Are the entity's intentions. One. Night while doing her hair in her bathroom, Louis quote a bizarre, growling, sound over her shoulder, and and. Another night she came home to find her bathroom, completely, flooded, narrowly, missing, a hairdryer, plugged. Into the wall I couldn't. Explain it by like any accounts, no TV was on my brother was in his room with his headphones on, like.
My My. Dogs were downstairs I had, never heard anything like it in my life and it almost sounded like it was like speaking. In like a language I didn't, recognize. How did it make you feel really. Really, uncomfortable. That's. Weird, to. Megalo a standard, bathroom, pressure. Air. Buddy. I acknowledge. Staring, it's going to be strange all, right you know what if you want to catch that sweet sweet everybody, I get. To. Play a funny little tune yeah. Anyway. Continue. Continue. To brush, in. This growl, it was, animalistic. Or was it more of like a roll, the. Growl sounded, like, mumbling. Really, deep over my shoulder, oh that's creepy. It was just really deep, and like guttural, like I couldn't hear it super well or anything that sounds demonic I mean. Yeah. This, experience, prompted, her to ask for advice from followers, and pray over the space luckily. For the most part the experience, is stopped all was, well but, due to life circumstances. LOI unfortunately. Had to move to a different unit, within the building, shortly, after, the experiences, started again also. Worth mentioning the, tenant who moved into Louie's old unit, eventually. Moved out due, to strange, occurrences. What I do think is interesting is. While. I am like a few floors down I'm in the same location. As my previous one so I'm literally just like like vertically, yes I see yeah just like a little bit off to the left so, it could go down to the actual ground, itself, yeah but while that tenant fled her new digs LOI, was unable to flee from hers and the, activity, only worsened. Her, roommate would hear noises when, nobody was home things. Would go missing and randomly, reappear. And her roommates, dog would growl at Louie's side of the apartment although he wasn't home seemingly, nothing, but. Sounds. Like apartment, stuff you're never unnerved, when you see an animal I'm looking up my cat does that all the time you're like what are you looking at is just sometimes animals get spooked my cat start freaking out months, ago months ago we think he just smelled like a coyote, outside, or something but for, a full day he was like. What. If he took something back for one of our shoots well, it only happened for a day so it was normal and then then the demon was like this, sucks yeah no, reaction. Audience tuff Christ guy sucks, packing up later. Eventually. Her roommates, would move out leaving, LOI by herself, however, the experiences, weren't always unpleasant, Louie's, father passed a couple years prior and, LOI would sometimes smell his Cologne in, her apartment and in times of need much like all of us do with lost loved ones LOI, would talk to him quote sometimes, I'll talk to my dad sometimes I ask for help end quote. But unfortunately when. We reach out to the other side it's, not always the person we intend, that walks, through the door quote, one, night I fell asleep watching TV and, woke up this someone knocking on my front door they, called out she's, going to come in now is that okay I was obviously alarmed. And it was so real I thought someone was really at my door it sounded like a middle-aged, woman it actually, sounded kind of soothing it felt, like there were two people there end quote. Regardless. Of if it was two people or not whatever it was it asked, for permission to come inside and, LOI groggy, from an impromptu, nap, believes, quote I may, have said yes and that does really scare me I ran, over but, of course no one was there so. I, went I checked nobody was there nobody's in the hallway I slowly. Drift off to sleep that night but I keep like waking up like somebody's like shaking. Me awake or I just, keep hearing like the weirdest sounds, and nothing, specific.
Just I feel really uneasy the, following night LOI came home to find quote all of, my cabinets, wide open, despite living alone I woke, up in the middle of the night to Siri on my phone responding. To something despite. It being silent. In the apartment, and no one else being here even, weirder another, night I woke up to the sound of a deep male voice chanting. Something in my ear and. Like, this like grumbling. Like deep chanting, sound unlike anything I'd ever heard, in my life and I like bolted. Up, it felt. So, nasty. I smelled, like and that's another thing with this place you'll, just smell the weirdest, stuff, almost what smelled like campfire, smoke and again, it's like 2:00. 3:00 in. The morning at this point nobody's. Up grilling. Or you know doing whatever who. Walked into Louie's apartment, is unclear. But, whether they walked in that night at Louie's invitation, or they, followed her home from the antique shop in Texas the, question may not be who, resides, in the apartment, but, what Louie. Thinks the voice she heard that night possibly, was speaking a different language and, often, her apartment, smells like something, burning, these two things plus the antagonistic, feeling in her apartment all, unfortunately. Point, to one thing a demonic. Entity, not. To drop the demon word this early on but I think the idea, of anything demonic, really scares me all right ghouls. Now. We're really gonna party it's may be loud. If. You could say any of our names back to us to establish a baseline of communication. That would be great once, again my name is Ryan Shane, Louis. Please say any of our names if you want to communicate with us. Can. You say your name. Well. With that. What. To play that back first I don't like below put it a little bit what what happened what what. Happened. Why. Are you here. Maybe. I'm. Gonna be a Ryan I'm, not sure I'm gonna need to hear more than one word for me to think there's anything in here. Was. There a demon here. When.
Researching, The house I found that the building was once a lumberyard and eventually. A supply, store however, why would this building, have a demonic infestation. So, what we have here are two flashlights. Very. Easy to turn on and off all you really have to do is tap them yes, like, that turn it off now. If you could turn off the one. You're. Gonna you got to wait here, thank. You hey if, you could turn both of those lights off in five four. Three. Two. One. Lights. Off. All. Right I think everything's good here, LOI. You're, all set, how, about turning the one. Turn. That back on please turn oh my, god if. You could turn this one off right now. Please. Turn that back on thank, you. I'll. Tell you what clearly. You're not amused, right now so, we're going to leave and when we come back it's gonna be just one of us at a time you, like that huh. You want to play huh. Demons. Prey on vulnerability. And nothing, is more vulnerable than, a person, alone so, to simulate that we'll finish off our investigation by. Investigating. The apartment. Individually. All. Right ghosts. Get. A level with you I don't think there's any demons here because, I have, tests with a lot of demons in mind eh - these flashlights. That Ryan loved so much we could take a look at them see what they do well. Right now we've got one on one off if, there is a presence, here and it despises, me turn that left flashlight. Off and, the right flashlight, on. You've, got 10 seconds, 10, 9. 8. 7, 6. 5. 4. 3. 2. 1. You. Didn't do it okay well. You go okay, see. Huh. You know what not. Bad. Not. Bad you, ever tried to take a lid off of a pickle jar yeah. Yeah. You're hard you can't do it takes, a couple twists, you hand it to someone like hey can you take this off and they're like let me try and then you tend to someone else and let me try what. If me and Shane are. Loosening. Up the metaphorical, lid of this pickle jar and when you get in is gonna pop right off and. The pickles will just fly out and you're gonna have pickle juice all. Can. You turn both of the flashlights, off if, you. Are. Inhuman, if. There's some sort of demonic spirit, here that wants me dead that. Wants to bring me harm, I'll, take you home with me I don't care great. So we've got it both off so. Maybe. A demon, here maybe I, don't. Think there's a demon here yeah I think we're gonna have the flashlight set up for you you're gonna be able to use the flashlights, to communicate, with it okay and, then maybe I'll just explore the space you know yeah assert, my dominance. I'll. Walk through and make it known that yeah. You're the one in charge I'm gonna pee all over your furniture, mark. My territory an awesome demon. Now's. Your opportunity, to. Enter my. Soul there, put 15 seconds on the clock here. Here, we go. What. Are. You nervous about being in there alone despite. It going, against the, fact that you live there alone. Now. Yeah, I guess you walking, in there alone, is it usually, preceded, by two. Idiots. Screaming at them something to come kill them for. Two hours before that well alright. That's it time's up, you, didn't do it I think the silence, almost freaks me out more. Because. I've experienced, so much in that space it, I, hope, something. Will happen on these. Cameras, and you know not when you, guys leave for real and I'm like actually alone that, would suck that would really suck, so. Now I'm going to call upon the power that I've accumulated, from, all the demons I've defeated and I will use it to banish, your wretched, withering, soul back, to hell, do you hear me I'm sending you back to hell, I don't really know how that works but I'm just gonna say. That I'm doing it and I'm pretty sure that's gonna be enough so. Alakazam. A big. Bang boom. Hope. You like hell you loser hello, come on in hello. It's, messed up in here man is it is it really messed up those flashlights, are dancing in a way I've never seen him dance really. I'm. Actually starting to get a little a little butterflies in my stomach this year either one a Dios, friends, have fun, I'm. Gonna, unscrew that pickle, jar for you. Thanks. Ryan happy you guys have inside jokes. Oh well, well. It's. Just me and you now pal if, there is anything in the fact at all you, can't be scared of little old me can you oh oh that mine just turned on can. I see you turn on the other one and turn off the one that is currently on if there is something in here that in fact actually, wants to hurt, us do, that right now. Gonna. Do it could you I'll say I think your apartment, was about on them on a par with every. Other location, we've been to oh wow. Yeah, there, are no ghosts here right yeah. I'm. Not trying to be cocky about it but I think you're safe, I'm saying that as a word. Of words of comfort what's. Your name. What's. Your name, come. On what's, your name I know that gives away your power what. Do you want. What. Do you want what LOI.
Come. On. This, really all you got how about opening those cabinets, give it a little swing, swing test, those hinges out come, on if, there truly is something demonic in here. Smite. Me this is the most cavalier, I've ever been on a demonic, investigation. You're really gonna let that happen on, your watch this. Is where you played with her right this is where you growl. But. You can't do one. Little thing right now you can't even tussle. My hair touch. Me. Mmm. A little. Bit of a breeze in here that's interesting, is. That you is, that all you got I do feel, a little bit of nervous, energy is, there something actually in here watching me. I'm. Gonna bask in the silence now and. I'm gonna really let you have the room because, maybe you're just tired of hearing my stupid annoying voice and I get that so here you go here's some silence, standing. In the dark for, you right. Now do. Your worst. Mmm. That's good that. Doorbell did make me jump. Very. Good very. Good, all, right lower the time has come I mean, I'm pretty nervous you'll do great this is the first time I've like tried, to address something. Specifically. What, we certified in a rile up the room for you great, we were very respectful well. I did steered I did stir that up baby. Holy. Cow, it feels weird in here um. Pretty. Pretty, rare that I'm out here, with. You, during. A solo, investigation you. Know any extra, time with you is. A. Punishment, and. That's. What you've given me here today more face time with you I mean. You're having fun. Is. There anyone here who, wants. To communicate I. See. That faint light. So. Freakin. Weird in here. Now. Can you slow it down because I actually don't know what you're doing there's anyone there. Like, shaping oh. My. God, holy. That. Was so freakin scary I just said hey LOI. I'm, here, what. Is your name oh. My. God okay. Okay. Can. You tell me what you want. Holy. Crap, okay okay okay okay I just heard it say I want you to and I didn't hear the last fight thought it said jury do, a little over here well, over here out. Back. Yeah. What. Did you do with your their pen their Peck over here yeah. Now, back out. Now. Over here. No. No. Well. That's the different things what, is your name. Freakin. Chose I. Hate. This I'm. Sure she's probably fine. I. Did feel a breeze in my on my face in the bathroom which was interesting, it gave me pause for a second I was like it's, the last place you want to feel a breeze in your face. Well. You know thanks you suggesting, that goes, parted in what days if that's the time suggest oh my. God, ha. You seem shook. Yeah, a little, Chuck um, okay. So, that. Was really. Freaking. Weird it, said my name it said halo II and I heard it clear as day and, it immediately, it kind of like freaked me out I just felt weird and like I've, never really had I'm like shaking yeah, um so. I never really had anything like that happened before and then almost immediately. After I said what do you want and it said I want you to clear, his day and I couldn't understand the third word or the fourth word or whatever it, sounded, like I want you to drink, well. I don't maybe. It's just reminding me to hydrate, I don't, really know. Friendly. Kaspar it did push a drinking, glass toward you and then there was another full. Full full sentence. That sounded like a woman's voice and I just freaked out and like turned it off I couldn't. Do any more yeah well I like, still like so freaked out I've never experienced anything like that in my life you'll be fine I think, our job here is done what, Ava we freaked her out we, riled the place up I think I feel it feels cleansed, and now we're gonna get back in the back. I feels, cleanse. Pretty. Bad I'm very sorry okay, I'm gonna take. A bubble bath or something now so okay. Bye. Guys, two. Years ago Lois Lane purchased, a Ouija board for the esthetic and got plenty more yet. Another case study into, why reaching out to the other side no matter how innocent can be dangerous, but whether or not something sinister washed, through that open door is up for debate and will for now remain.
