Bizarre mummified creature discovered
A bizarre mummified creature has been discovered at the heart of a diamond mine in the Sakha Republic, in northern Siberia. This ancient “monster” could date back to between 252 and 66 million years ago as it was found in sand deposits of that age.
The Siberian Times reports that the miners who found the remains had been working at the Udachnaya pipe diamond deposit, an open-pit diamond mine located just outside the Arctic Circle.
The site was discovered in 1955 and since then yielded 350 million tonnes of ore containing rough diamonds. There has also been a number of unusual discoveries such as that of a mystery red rock full of diamonds.
However, no find has been as strange as the mummified monster that has just been uncovered. The miners believed they had just stumbled upon the remains of a previously unknown species of dinosaurs.
Their theory has yet to be proved. The creature will therefore be taken for more analysis to the regional capital Yakutsk, a city 1,686km south of the Udachnaya diamond pit.
Other hypothesis about the little monster’s potential origins are that it might be a wolverine, a carnivorous mammal resembling a small bear or a marten – another slender, agile mammal living in the snow forests of Siberia.
Closer analysis of the mummy’s morphology, bones, and of possible DNA samples should yield more clues about its origins and give a more precise approximation of the time it lived at.
GHOST CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Is this world’s first genuine snap of a long-dead spirit?
PARANORMAL investigators believe they have proved ghosts really exist after capturing an eerie apparition of a woman in a former coal mine.
Ghost hunter Jimmy Devlin, 44, is convinced the transparent figure could be the spirit of of a long-dead female coal sorter.
He committed the “spectre” to camera during a paranormal investigation at Lady Victoria pit in Newtongrange, Midlothian, where Scotland’s National Mining Museum is now based.
He said: “I have very rarely shared any of my work, more because of ridicule and cyber abuse from closed minded individuals. I do however feel I would like to share this image I captured whilst taking random shots before my investigation began. It was taken while standing on one of the high walkways that run over the old bogey tracks that surround the pit head. It appears to me, to be that of a woman, dressed in a long flowing skirt, blouse and possibly her hair tied up or wearing a headscarf.”
He thinks it resembles the women depicted in recreations of coal sorters from the time which are available on the museum’s website.
He added: “I have been visiting the mining museum for six or seven years for public events. But this was one I wanted to do privately. I went along with two or three friends who do this on a regular basis. But we split up and I was completely on my own when that happened. We keep in touch with walkie-talkies. This was a good capture. With the size of the place we have only really just scratched the surface.”
Mr Devlin now wants to go back to the site to see if any more evidence of ghosts can be caught on camera.
Ghost caught on film? Bizarre shape zipped past security camera
PARANORMAL investigators are doing somersaults over new footage which shows a bizarre orb blast past a security camera.
The footage has been handed to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) for further investigation.
It shows a security camera on the outside of an address in Longmont, Colorado, recording from a fixed position on Friday.
The homeowner, who has not been named, but who reported the sighting to experts, wrote to the US-based organization: “Found this on one of my surveillance cameras. I have no idea….winter, no birds, insects or bats. My house faces north and south…field behind me. The light went from west to east.”
Although MUFON is devoted to investigating UFO sightings, it will log and look at other paranormal events in some cases.
Scott C Waring, a UFO researcher, not connected to MUFON, who runs blog site UFO Sightings Daily, discussed the possibility of ghosts or aliens in a blog post.
He wrote: “This energy orb was caught on an infrared cam.”Infrared catches spectrum’s of light that the human eye cannot see. It is often used by paranormal ghost hunters. This object is not really long, but is moving so fast that it appears stretched out.”
He claimed Colorado was famous for so-called white-glowing UFOs, and that thousands had been seen there already in 2016.
MUFON, which has recorded the case, has yet to reach any verdicts.
Some posters on Waring’s site were convinced it was of alien origin.
One, posting anonymously, said: “UFOs move with that cosmic whoosh, not like a space craft or plane like most people imagine.”
Streetcap1, a YouTube UFO video maker, added: “Orbs I believe in, as I have night vision cameras.
“Some folk say it’s dust. Dust does not move that fast and is not that large.”
Aside from camera flares from moving creatures or dust, another explanation could be ball lightening. These are mysterious balls of lighting that have been known to move about in all directions, but scientists have yet to reach consensus on how they can exist as well.
REAL LIFE SPIDER PIG: Piglet born with EIGHT trotters and TWO tails
It comes just months after pictures of a similarly-deformed piglet were taken in the village of El Galpon, in the north-western Argentine province of Salta.
The latest image was snapped by the Murillo family who have a pig-rearing business in the coastal city of Los Mochis in Mexico’s north-western state of Sinaloa.
The farmers said they were shocked when they discovered the newborn piglet and decided to share an image of the animal online, where netizens started widely sharing it.
It was also published in several local news outlets. The Murillos said that they had never seen anything like it and they thought that two piglets had actually somehow fused together in their mother’s womb.
The little black-spotted creature, which only had one head but two bodies, was very weak and reportedly died just minutes after being born.
This incident is just the last in a string of similar cases where deformed animals are being born in farms across Latin America.
In Argentina, local media coined the term the ‘Spider-Pig’ for a similar piglet that had also been born with eight legs.
Experts quoted in reports believed the deformities were due to an excessive use of pesticides used on genetically-modified food fed to farm animals.
Animal rights activists believe it is due to the industrial chemicals that the farmers are said to have used on their land or possibly the side-effect of intensive farming techniques.
Mother claims family was photo-bombed by a ghost at the cinema
A mother believes she has captured a picture of a ghost sitting behind her and her family at a cinema.
Emma Johnson, 35, took the picture of herself with George, six, Ava, eight, and seven-month-old Harper.
They watched Finding Dory together at the cinema in New Brighton, Wirral, then went home and looked at the picture.
Emma said: ‘I wanted to take a selfie because it was the first time that Harper had been to the cinema but I was really self-conscious so I made sure that the cinema was empty.
‘I even bumped into a friend who was on the back row and she assured me that there was no one there when I spoke to her later. It was only when we got home and checked the photo that we saw the ghost and I could make out a little girl and a teddy next to her. I didn’t even think that it was possible to have a teddy bear ghost. My family are normally all quite sceptical, but everyone was a bit shocked when they saw it and I’m quite interested to find out what it could be. But we’ve had to hide it from the kids in case they are scared so we have just told them that it is an advert for Ghostbusters but my eldest is starting to cotton on now.’
She put the picture online and some have said she had edited the picture, but she insists it is the real deal.
Emma said: ‘As soon as I shared the picture, I got some people accusing me of using Photoshop or apps on my phone but I’m rubbish with technology so I wouldn’t even know where to start.
‘I just shared it online because I was trying to shed some light on who the ghost could have been.Because the cinema is right near the sea, I don’t know if it is of a little girl who drowned or something like that, but no one has mentioned any incidents like that just yet.’
A spokesman for the Light Cinema said: ‘We were intrigued to see Emma’s photo. We haven’t noticed any spooky goings-on in the cinema, but being in an area with such a rich history, you never know. We’ll be sure to keep our eyes peeled for any other ghosts lurking around.’
Real or fake? Ghostly photo mesmerizes social media
Real or fake? That’s the big question surrounding the latest social media buzz – a photograph posted by a man who says he witnessed the scene of a fatal motorcycle accident from afar, snapped a quick picture, and noticed, while looking at it and posting on Facebook, a shadowy whitish figure hovering above an emergency response official’s head.
Saul Vazquez of Mount Sterling, Kentucky, posted this to his Facebook page, alongside the photo: “I took this picture just few minutes ago from the cab of my truck it was an accident between Campton and Stanton on the service road just off of the mountain parkway, zoom in and pay attention to the shadow just off the top of the state trooper hat. All I say is I hope everyone involved is okay!!”
The crash victim was taken to the hospital, but later died, the Palm Beach Post reported.
Vazquez told LEX 18 he snapped the photo from the bed of his truck, while driving past the scene, and assures the photograph’s not been tampered with in any way.
UFO spotting? Couple left terrified as red orb appears over Paris
A MYSTERIOUS red orb which appeared in the the night sky over Paris has left a startled couple convinced they saw a UFO.
In the clip a huge light can be seen zig zagging over the streets of France’s capital. However when the couple zoom in on the light, it becomes clear the object is flying high above any nearby signals. The startling footage comes after NASA has been accused of covering up the existence of aliens by conspiracy theorists.
The video was posted on social media yesterday and it has left alien hunters baffled.
The red orb shines brightly in the sky before it vanishes in the dead of night a few seconds later.
It has been claimed the orb, which first appears to be a red traffic light, is a UFO.
UFO hunters made the claim after a photograph filmed lying on a Nasa employee’s desk during an interview showed “buildings” on the moon.
The conspiracy theorists claimed the image proves the age-old myth that NASA is aware intelligent aliens visit the earth and moon.
ACADEMICS have warned that fear of a ‘haunted’ house in a Scottish village could be contagious.
Published in the Scotsman: Scotland’s national newspaper
The caretaker of a 17th century flax mill near Kennoway, Fife, has reported various paranormal activities at the property in the two years he has been there. His family and fellow workers have heard strange noises in the houses and unusual voices, as well as ghost-like figures appearing inside and the TV volume going up and down by itself.
They’ve even called in expert ‘ghostbusters’ to try and get the bottom of what’s happening.
Now, one of the country’s top paranormal experts has warned that fear and anticipation of apparently paranormal events can be “contagious”. Professor Caroline Watt – who holds Edinburgh University’s Koestler Chair of Parapsychology – feels fear of paranormal activity can be “socially contagious” as hysteria builds up around a certain house.
Professor Watt said: “Research has shown that people’s expectations can influence how they react to naturally occurring ambiguous sights and sounds in their environment. For example, one study by researchers from Illinois University at Springfield took two groups on a tour of a disused theatre. One group was told the theatre was haunted, while the other was told it was under renovation. Both groups reported unusual sights and sounds, however more intense paranormal-type experiences were reported by the ‘haunted’ group. In that study, each group member toured the theatre individually. However the same researchers have found evidence to support their theories that fear and anticipation of ghostly experiences can be socially contagious leading to an increased number of false perceptions of ghosts.”
Her claims are backed up by Professor Christopher French, head of the Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit as the Department of Psychology, Goldsmiths, University of London. Professor French specializes in conspiracy theories and false memories and admits that usually there are legitimate reasons for incidents people think are paranormal.
He said: “Sometimes, just by chance, you’d expect to get a run of such mildly ‘anomalous’ events over a relatively short time period. Some of the events probably have physical explanations. For example, the TV volume fluctuating is probably nothing more than a fault in the equipment. The nocturnal apparitions may well be examples of sleep paralysis, a scary but harmless hallucinatory experience that is common in both children and adults.”
Gaurav Tiwari: Indian ghost buster’s mysterious death is magnet for paranormal theories
First there was a sound of a thud, like something dropping on the floor. Those present in the home even heard someone lunging at the latch of the bathroom. But no one got worried; everyone ignored the rustling sound coming from the bathroom. Indian door latches often turn rusty and refuse to work in a single turn.
But when Gaurav Tiwari did not emerge from the bathroom for almost an hour and there was no sound of the flowing tap, nor ruffling sounds of pushing water from body, his wife knocked the door.
She knocked one, twice, thrice. And then, she, Arya Kashyap, peeped through the window glass of the bathroom and screamed. A neighbor heaved at the door, almost fell inside by the impact. Pandemonium prevailed in the house.

India’s most well-known ghost buster was on the floor, sweating profusely, eyes protruding, gasping for breath. The family members did not notice a deep black mark on his neck, they had to rush him to the hospital. An hour-and-a-half later, Tiwari breathed his last, even before the doctors could put him on the ventilator.
It was on the morning of 7 July 2016. A fortnight later, cops are now suspecting a case of homicide, pooh-poohing the original theory floated by members of Tiwari’s Paranormal Society of India that the death was the handiwork of some “evil forces”.
But still, the cops and the doctors have not been able to offer an concrete answer about the black mark on Tiwari’s neck. Such marks, Tiwari often narrated during dinner table conversations, are signs of revenge of spirits in distress. His family believed him at times, mostly ignored him. Arya did not even liked the ghost busting profession, she wanted her husband to wear a tie and suit and carry a leather case to a corporate office.
But Tiwari would ignore everything and routinely leave home in the night. The Paranormal Society of India received over 250 mails regarding alleged existence of “spirits” at various homes across India, handled over 500 calls a day at their office in Dwarka on the western fringes of Delhi.
Tiwari often cited the example of the American-British 1976 supernatural horror film, The Omen, to narrate such “black line” theories. The film also had examples of a photographer finding black lines appearing from nowhere in his photographs of a priest probing mysterious and ominous deaths.
But the cops at the Dwarka Police Station are not buying such theories; a deputy commissioner has been pushed into the investigating team that has even started looking into the case of a possible murder. The cops have found enough information from friends of the family that Arya suspected her husband of infidelity.
“The two argued for almost two hours the day before Tiwari’s death,” said Ashok Singh, a sub inspector who looked into the case and did the first round of questioning. He further said Tiwari’s father and wife were questioned for more than eight hours, both unable to offer answers narrating the sequence of event leading to Tiwari’s death.
Singh said the final word is still not out in the case that has forced Tiwari’s outfit, the Paranormal Society of India to shut shop, reject mails and phone calls for over two weeks.
His ghostbuster partners say they are saddened by the turn of events. The group has been in existence for over a decade and helped many resolve their problems which are, largely — almost 98 percent — psychological. The rest need cleansing, popularly known in the West as exorcism. Using electronic voice and image recorders and magnetic plates, Tiwari and his men would help “purging of souls” from homes plagued by mysterious events. They would visit unoccupied houses, graveyards, morgues, even vacant churches to see if ghosts exist. Very recently, they busted the myth of spirits in Bangarh, an abandoned fort in Rajasthan.
“Bulk of it is sheer hallucination,” says Amit Singh, one of the active members of the group. Singh says methods adopted by Tiwari were extremely scientific. A recent case of the group cleansing a house of the spirit of a baby drew a huge response on YouTube.
It was in South Delhi where a couple saw images of a baby girl fleetingly moving in and out of their living room and bedroom. The couple was scared, called Tiwari and after an arduous eight hour operation, the spirit was cleansed out of the home.
“We were investigating a suspected haunted house in West Delhi’s Janakpuri neighbourhood and Gaurav returned home around 0200 hours,” says Singh.
And then he was found dead the next day.
Singh said Tiwari’s first encounter with the paranormal was in his hotel room in Texas where he saw an apparition of a young girl. Tiwari was then training to be a commercial pilot in Texas in 2003. He eventually completed a Certified Paranormal Investigator course and traveled across the US to witness 80 spooky investigations. Tiwari, who set up the Indian Paranormal Society in 2009, visited over 6,000 ghoulish abodes across the world and shaped his research on the paranormal with a deep sense of empathy. “Do not disrespect the dead, he would often tell us,” said Singh.
So who killed Tiwari? Ghosts, or someone who had sneaked into the bathroom and was waiting for him? The cops have no answer; Singh says he would not hazard a guess. Top Australian ghostbuster Allen Tiller, who worked with Tiwari for a television series Haunting: Australia took to Facebook to claim Tiwari had a heart attack. In a statement to the cops, Tiwari’s father said his son told him “I am feeling extremely uncomfortable for quite some time, I am being followed, I am being watched by someone who refuses to leave me.” The cops ignored it. They say there is a tendency to become very preoccupied with putative demonic explanations and to see the devil everywhere.
“Sometimes, spirits leave negative impact in your home if they are disturbed,” says Sashi Dubey, a practitioner of the occult in Delhi. Speaking from the US, Dubey said “too much of interaction with spirits can always have its side effects. In the US, nearly one third of Americans claim to have experienced an encounter with the undead”.
Unlike in the US where 35 percent of respondents claim they have lived or are living in a place that is haunted, Indians have different theories about haunted homes. Some travel groups have even put together some creepy criteria to determine some of India’s most haunted homes in Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata and routinely take people for visits, some houses are even available to stay in overnight. Some houses have also been rebuilt to resemble the original, like D’Souza chawl in Mumbai which was known to be a haunted place after a woman drowned in a well.
Soumee Mitra, a celebrated fitness trainer in Kolkata who has studied about life after death says most stories about spirits in homes often turn out to be fake, but some are genuine. She personally experienced spirits at her ancestral home that was built on a graveyard.
“There would be someone heavily breathing close to you, someone would bang on your door, I would hear sounds of someone climbing up the stairs. But all of these were very, very momentary, happening mostly in the night.”
“Entities that continuously wander in a place of their preference normally do not harm anyone, though I have heard cases where people were forced to commit suicide because of spirits,” says Mitra, who has helped clergy from multiple denominations and faiths to filter episodes of mental illness — representing the overwhelming majority of cases — from, literally, the devil’s work.
“Sunlight, prayers have helped me ease them out, it’s been tough,” says Mitra.
In Tiwari’s case, only the father persists with the theory of numerous spirit sightings at home, all having occurred within five feet of his son. He spotted them, others didn’t.
No one is buying his theory, and the fact which Tiwari, if alive, would have propagated: That spirits he chased eventually got after him. At the Dwarka police station, there is no panic about Satanism, the cops seem convinced it is a case of suicide, unless proved otherwise.
