Ghost Hunters 'Run Away' From Spooky House That Owners Are Giving Away For Free

Ghost Hunters 'Run Away' From Spooky House That Owners Are Giving Away For Free

Ghost hunters 'ran out' of a house that is rumoured to be so haunted its owners are giving it away for free.

The four-bedroom house in Youngsville, Louisiana, hit headlines last month after claims its spooky reputation meant no one would take it off its owners' hands.

Sylvia McLain, from McLain Investments, posted photos of the property on Facebook offering it for free to anyone who would be willing to take it away and do it up. However, the post was quickly flooded with messages from people claiming the gaff was haunted.

Dawn Vallot DeClout, who used to live in the property, says that one of the spirits in the house is her late great-grandmother Adele.

Now, paranormal investigators have paid it a visit and seem to have confirmed the rumours, saying they were 'confronted by an evil spirit'.

Cindy Parr and Greg Matlock Senior, from New Orleans, visited the spooky house and say they were met with all sorts of unexplained goings on.

Speaking to the Sun, Parr said that the house quickly drained batteries and that a door opened and closed on its own.

But the claims partner Matlock Senior makes are even more terrifying.

He told the Sun: "I turned into the room and saw this black mass standing there, it wasn't a shadow or anything like that, it was pretty wide.

"I don't think it was the older lady, I think it was something totally different, the figure was bigger and stood about 6ft.

"It started to turn and I just thought, 'Oh no' and ran out, I was done, it was unbelievable, everything just slowed down.

"It wasn't just me seeing it, it was what I felt when it was there, you could feel the power, it was bad, not a good situation to be in at all.

"We got out and I was definitely exhausted, it draws energy from you, my chest was even hurting."

The pair went on to compare the house to 'watching Amityville Horror on TV' and say they also heard 'scratches on walls' and 'growls'.

Speaking last month, McLain said: "I don't know if it's haunted, but I do know about all the rumours surrounding the house.

"I am aware there's a lot of talk about the house being haunted.

"Dawn and her brother always tell the story that their great grandmother would stir the pot while they were playing cards in the living room. So yes, there's some really cute stories about it being haunted.

"And then the girl that lived in it who was the last tenant, everybody called her 'gypsy' because she believed in the spirits and all that stuff.

"The previous tenant even told us she had somebody come in and check for spirits."

McLain has now confirmed the property has finally been sold, and the house will be moved and reconstructed 15 to 20 miles away.

She told the Sun: "The man is in the construction business, he's going to move it himself and put it on his family land for his daughter.

"They wanted it because it was free, they couldn't care less about the history of it, they don't believe all the stories."
