I am appalled at the use of this woman's illness to promote advertizing for this man's B & B. I am horrified that people who are suppose to be professional Mediums and Investigators, could do such a poor job of investigating and publicizing this story.
Paris Green was used to kill Roach's, ants and other insects. It was also used in Wallpaper and was latter discovered to cause many deaths due to inhalation. If Mrs. Purdy used Paris Green to treat insects and inhaled it she would have been effected. This may have been the original cause of her problem that lead up to the Murder/Suicide attempt.
In 'The Dead Files''Erie in Erieville' it is implicated that the children died, thus children Ghosts. The children did not die! The husband did not die! The only person who died was the wife/mother. This would indicate that she had been exposed to the poison for a longer time then anyone else, only proving the point that she had been breathing in the poison and was ill from it for quite a while before her acts.
For her Death to be used as a way of making fame for the Producer, the Medium and the Investigator is sad... especially since they did not present all the facts. Nor leave the watcher with a correct conclusion.
You do not have Child Ghosts when they have grown and died as adults, as a rule. And there may be graves but they were not of the children, as they did not die.

Hi,
I watched the same episode and didn't get the same (negative) impression you did. Yes, eventually the children DID die, perhaps as they were older, but in the afterlife show themselves as still small. Not sure why you are referring to a "rule" about how ghosts present themselves in the afterlife, I don't believe there is one.
I also thought this B&B owner might be angling for self promotion, but the real story is how he has opened himself up for possibly dangerous and harming contact with "the other side." In that light I think the show did an excellent job of recommending not to dabble. Also, how the negative actions of others in other centuries (even if she was mentally ill) can still affect people in the present time.
Please remember that these 1-hour shows are much edited from possibly days of taping. The Medium has made it clear she goes into homes only where asked, she provides clarity and information.

There is no such thing as ghosts. Do spiritual things happen...Yes, so if they are not ghosts what are they? Demons is the answer. The have studied the human race for centuries, deceiving many and when they manifest they can manifest with knowledge of relatives, and present themselves as children or adults,(what ever it takes to deceive). Hope all the ghost hunters out there someday will be more cautious and know what they are dealing with. You want to learn how to defeat demons...crack open your Bible and learn it...Jesus is the master at defeating demons.

If ghosts can appear as they choose then perhaps it is a symbolic thing that they appear as children. They were innocent of what their mother tried to do to them and they suffered apparently for years afterward. It could have been that the mother was mentally ill who devised this plan in the way portrayed. It is however one of those things that no one will know every fact of the act. Socialpaths can manipulate and perhaps she felt if she built a tolerance to it that she would survive while her family died. Thus if anyone investigated the deaths they might rule her out since her system would have an abundance of the chemical in her system. Or perhaps she wanted so much to die that she began treating herself with it before the big event. While I don't believe that there are only demons roaming. I understand that others do. There is no 100% proof of afterlife activities. You can have belief and for many that is all that they need. Others, such as myself, have had experiences that create a belief of a different path.

I looked up all of this,what they found was true, paris green,was a coloring and a type of arsenic (rat poison)
There are news paper articles on this. Amy is always right,the ones she's done close to my town I knew the dentist in Huntington west Virginia he's a great man I believe it. And contacting spirits is NEVER good either I've seen spirits since I was a small child as well I used Ouija 7 yrs ago,and awful things happened bc of that and they are not leaving me alone. I have been saved and baptized and have strong faith in Jesus. The dead still mess with me,I don't ask them too never did as a child either ,I don't like my stepdaughter hearing things bc she didn't do anything. But stuff Fly off the shelves sometimes, things move to different places...spirits are real.

Norma if this is true then why would and article in the 1898 issue of the new York Times say they all died due to Paris green poisoning look it up July 20 1898 new York Times issue what I'm appalled about are people like you who come on to places like this thinking they know everything when they don't make any scents at all think before typing next time Norma Henry

Could not have said it any better. They are not ghosts but
Mimicking demons. Only through Jesus the son of God do we have victory over them.

was a phone psychic clarviont, for 11 years, in my earlm y 20s. Its esay for a so called medium to go to the bathroom with their smart phone. Put in the address of the ghosts or entities address. And there you have a story a pic. I dont know if i belive in this mediun. However. I do belive we posses all gifts, and i have experience medium like symptoms. In a grave yard.I dont see dead people. But i have experienced talking to the dead. And getting my answers met.I would hate to think that this medium was not gifted. But I would not doubt the interent and the answers at hand.Having these gifts, i am still skiptical about others. For thieir is trickery in the world.

I wish I could talk with a ghost sometime. In almost every so-called picture I've seen of ghosts they are wearing clothes and I would like to ask why.
