Lots of people, from all walks of life, have paranormal experiences. Experienced hunters claim to see Bigfoot. Air Force pilots have seen UFOs. And professionals from all walks of life believe they have seen ghosts. But sometimes, people who are mentally ill can hallucinate and think they are seeing things that truly aren’t there. And sometimes, that can be scarier than the actual alleged paranormal activity. This story is scary not because of the potential ghosts, but because a woman and her children could have been killed.
A California man was caught on camera pouring diesel fuel onto his neighbor’s house in an effort to burn a ghost out of the residence, police said.
In the video, he pours diesel onto the porch of the Stockton home and attempts to light it, but the fire never ignites.
A woman and her two children were asleep inside the house at the time of the early Thursday morning incident.
The man, who lives across the street, was quickly arrested after the family called police.
“They arrested him,” the homeowner said. “He said that he didn’t have anything against us, that he thought he saw a ghost in our house and to me that’s just even scarier.”
The man, 38-year-old Cuong Pham, was charged with arson and attempted murder.
This man seems legitimately mentally disturbed, and I hope he gets the help he needs. Thankfully the homeowner and her children were not harmed.
