I know who the axe murder is. It’s actually solved by the series Ghost Adventures. When they asked “Who’s the murderers name?” Moores family said “Andy”. Ghost hunters said that it’s well known name always heard on court.

not a question but you guys should try the Estes method with the spirit box. one person puts on headphones connected to the box and a blindfold and repeats what they hear, and the other asks the questions. this way the questions can't influence the answers.

@BuzzFeed Unsolved Network you guys solved this case. Hear me out, if the Marshal at the town LET people wield the axe instead of confiscating it then it had to be the Marshal of the town at the time since a normal marshal would SECURE the crime scene not let people onto it and contaminate any evidence left behind

Hey Ryan and Shane, I just watched your video and I looked back in the video from 30:21 to 30:24 a few times and I noticed a white mist move in the far left corner as Ryan was counting down for the flashlight. I checked back to make sure it wasn't the lighting when moving around and it doesn't look like the lighting.

sure he may have murdered that entire family with an axe, but the bacon almost makes up for it- who wouldn't want a massive strip of bacon.

For that Particular Murder case, covering of the mirrors and faces of the victims I'm pretty sure that means it was personal, the killer obviously knew their schedule, and they had keys to be able to get in and locked up before he left, I don't think the two girls that stayed the night were on the list but had to do it no witnesses plus it was dark and probably couldn't tell if it was the Moores children or not. MPO🤷‍♀️

Magnitude of act of ghosts in history is always frightening than the time paranormal investigators visit the scene. It's like ghost who slaughtered 8 people without sounds trying to play with torch lights and making weird noices

The one thing I was confused about was that they kept trying to communicate with the murderer. Because why would his spirit be in this house? It would make sense to speak to the murder victims because they died there but the murderer probably wouldn’t be there. (Obviously IF ghosts are real which is a big IF)
wales007 Hace 5 días
But I think that when a person is capable of committing such an atrocities they won't be able to really rest, his soul is probably trapped there as a version of hell for him while the victims are resting in peace because they were innocent.

theory (from my gut and no facts): killer had something to do with dad. either hated him or loved him. Must have been an enemy or a friend. There is no way someone could have broken in the house without making ANY noise, so the killer was no stranger. Now, i don't know the difference between the damage caused by bludgeoning and slitting... but this is what i think-

I think the murderer did wake up someone though. Going by the slashes on her arm I think the killer woke up the wife trying to kill the husband. How he killed both the little girls sleeping over without waking the other up is a mystery. They mentioned they were in the same bed right?

the way the responses on the spirit box are accurate tho and the fact that it's all the same voices except for the one who was asking for help + i think the only thing why they can't hear most of the responses on the spirit box when it's picking up voices is because it's sitting close to them. they will probably hear the voices if they put it a few feet away from them
Charmynox Hace 9 días
I think the covering of the mirror is because it's believed in some cultures that if someone dies in front of an uncovered mirror, their soul can be trapped within it as mirrors are seen as portals to the other side.

I don't think that the person who did it enjoyed comminting the crime. The way he covered the victims' faces, and the fact the he also covered mirrors looks to me a sign that he personally knew the family. Covering the faces so he doesn't have to look at them and literally face what he have done. Covering the mirrors either to not look at himself, or because of the belief that mirrors might trap spirits, so he didn't want this family to be stuck there suffering even more. Some might not believe in ghosts and be more on Shane's side here. But I'm a believer on the paranormal, and I'm standing on Ryan's side right now, because I'm gonna be talking about the voice on the spirit-box. It's clearly a man's voice everytime. Not only that, but the same voice. It sounded to me as if the killer is trapped inside that house, either by choice as a self-punishment, or even as a divine one. He sounded distressed, and as he said it himself, helpless. Asking multiple times to help him, because he wasn't able to stop himself from doing what he did. So I think it's safe to say that he probably wasn't mentally stable when he committed these murders. It was probably a moment of insanity when he did it. He also sounds as if sometimes he feels like he's living through that moment, and other times as if he's replying to Ryan directly, so in and out of this looping cycle. That's why I feel like it might be some sort of punishment, bc he sounds sorry and truly helpless.

19:05 what if the murderer, didn't actually wanted to kill them? Yeah I mean he killed 8 people but that makes sense (kind of) The covered mirrors, so he didn't had to look at his self after The "Stop me" could have be from the murderer, just like something told him to do so and he couldnt stop it or he just had to do it (obv i'm not saying hes not guilty, but I think it seems intresting) + From what I remember, covering victims face can mean regret of your action.

I was hoping for this season that they'd add more equipments (EMF, SLS, Static Cameras, etc) rather than just relying on a spirit box, two flashlights and "claimed voice recorder" that was left in a room since that's so easy to fake. meh... still a great season tho.

Since they didn’t mention it here or in the post mortem I’m pretty sure that the covering of the mirrors is some sort of cultural thing because some people believe that there mirrors trap spirits so when someone dies they cover the mirrors so that their spirit can move on
