TV man claims his team specialise in‘spiritual release’
There is still no explanation for the apparent ‘poltergeist activity’ witnessed at a Rutherglen house by police officers.
The incident, which took place last week on Stonelaw Road, has captured the imagination of the world but has left a family terrified.
Mystery continues to surround an apparent ‘poltergeist’ incident in a Rutherglen house last week as police confirmed they are no longer investigating.
It was reported on Saturday that police had been called to the house on Stonelaw Road by terrified Catherine Shreenan after a series of bizarre events.
Expecting to find a rational explanation, the officers were left stunned to witness clothes flying across a room and oven doors apparently opening and closing on their own.
Lights went off and the shades on the lamps were upside down when they came back on.
And a chihuahua which had been playing in the garden was discovered sitting on top of a 7ft hedge, with no explanation of how it got there.
The incident has captured the imagination of people all over the world, but there is still no sign of an explanation.
Police confirmed to the Reformer they were no longer investigating and were not looking at the history of the property.
The Catholic Church is believed to be offering care and support to Catherine, who moved out to her mother’s with her teenage son.
A priest is believed to have been brought in to the house to perform a blessing.
Catherine said at the weekend: “It’s placed enormous stress on the family.
“I’ve had people, teenagers, going past my home singing Ghostbusters.
“We don’t want people coming to our house. You can imagine the stress we have been under.”
With official authorities stumped as to how to approach the incident, paranormal experts have been offering their help to the family.
Ally Key, who has appeared on TV, likened the incident to the plot of horror move the Enfield poltergeist, an incident in England that was later made into a film.
He told the Reformer he and his small team specialises in “energy clearance and spiritual release”, adding: “We are all about helping people and we can help this woman in a professional manner, if she wants our help.
“We have helped people in this situation before. A lot of paranormal groups will be interested in this who say they want to help, but they can’t actually help. We have the equipment and are a proper investigation team.”
Cops were called to the house on August 8 and 9 and the The Reformer understands at least three officers witnessed the strange occurrences.
A source said: “Police attended wondering if there were mental health issues, but it turns out things were moving around. She thought if she got other people to witness it, it would stop, but it hasn’t.
“Everyone is talking about it. You would hope it has a rational explanation, but we just don’t know what’s happening. There is no evidence of criminality so there isn’t a lot else we can do.”
“It’s not a route we would normally go down but she may need to get a medium in or something like that.”
A spokeswoman for Police Scotland said they had attended and offered advice, but were not investigating the incident.
A spokeswoman for the Diocese of Motherwell said: “The diocese doesn’t normally comment on pastoral support offered to parishioners”
