Daily 2 Cents: UFO / Entity Observing Deer? -- Inquest: Psychics Helped Find Body -- Landlord Loses Haunted House Lawsuit

UFO / Entity Observing Deer?

JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - They were caught on camera the night of February 16. Mysterious lights that appeared in the sky over the 150 acres that Rainer and Edith Shattles call home in the Cumbest Bluff area of Jackson County. Were they a phenomenon that's simple to explain, or something else?

The Shattles never tire of looking at the strange images caught by their trail cameras on that clear winter night.

"We have unusual things happen around here that happen, but it's usually associated with our grandchildren. But this case, we didn't know what it was," Edith recalled. "I was looking for a nice buck to be showing up on the trail camera actually."

The timeline of the pictures is clear. At 7:24pm, deer appear and all is normal. At 7:29, a dim light appears. At 7:35, it gets brighter. Then at 7:53, a weird shape appears on the camera. The deer are lit up brightly, but how? The cameras are infrared and don't emit light. At 7:56, another sharper light appears, then it gets much closer, seemingly focused on the deer. It looks like headlights, but well off the ground and there is no road. It then flies away.

Rainer takes me to the site deep in the woods. I see the trees where the object appeared. Rainer tells me what he's thinking.

"Well at first, I was trying to see if it was something or a reason for what we were seeing. But the more we looked at it, the more we realized that it was something that was in the air, it was something that I had never seen before."

Edith said reaction from friends is what you would expect.

"Well, actually they are all just like we were. What? What is that? And, let me look at that again."

Another picture shows another deer looking at a light that comes from nowhere. Rainer has a theory.

"Well, if it's alien, I'm not sure about that. But it's definitely a UFO. Now whether it's a government drone or what, I wish if nothing else, one of them would step up and say, 'Yes, that's ours,'" Rainer said.

While Rainer and Edith admit they are wondering what this object was and are enlisting the help of friends to try and solve the mystery, they also say it's been quite a bit of fun.

"It's a puzzle that may never be solved and it's one that's kind of fun, adds a little flavor to life, I guess you could say," Rainer explained.

Flavor and another ingredient tossed in as well for the Shattles.

"We are just fascinated over it because of the fact that it was right here and it's real." - WLOX


Psychics used to help find body, inquest told

New Zealand: Two psychics helped to direct family and friends to the body of a Taranaki man who had drowned after falling into a river in Stratford.

Stephen Murphy, 37, had been missing for 10 days and was found dead in Patea River near a walking track in King Edward Park, Stratford on September 10 last year.

Friends and family reached out to two psychic mediums after they realised Mr Murphy had not been seen for a number of days and the psychics directed them to the area of King Edward Park where Mr Murphy's body was found the next day, Coroner Tim Scott said in his finding in the death.

Coroner Scott said Mr Murphy suffered from seizures and had been drinking at the time of his death. He could not conclude whether he fell in to the river as a result of a seizure or from intoxication.

The coroner found there was no reason to believe Mr Murphy committed suicide or that there was anybody else involved in his death.

Coroner Scott said he hoped his finding would end speculation in the Stratford community about the circumstances around Mr Murphy's death.

Meanwhile, a coroner has found a 48-year-old Northland man drowned when he fell from his dinghy while rowing out to his yacht.

The body of Ronald Raison was found at Tangitu Bay, Kerikeri on August 27, 2010. He was last seen a fortnight earlier on August 13, 2010.

Mr Raison lived on a yacht moored in Matauwhi Bay, Russell, and used a small dinghy to get to and from the yacht.

He had been drinking with a woman the night he disappeared and had intended to return to his yacht to sleep that night, the coroner said.

His dinghy and some of his belongings were found washed up in the sand near Te Wahapu Road, Russell on August 14.

Coroner Marshall said the weather was not good when Mr Raison attempted to return to his yacht.

Coroner Marshall said the most logical explanation for Mr Raison's death was that while attempting to reach his yacht he had fallen out of his dinghy and drowned. - NZHerald



Landlord loses lawsuit in haunted house case

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- A landlord, surnamed Chen, lost a lawsuit yesterday in a case in which he pursued reparations from the parents of his late tenant, surnamed Hsu, believing Hsu's suicide to have depreciated the value of the apartment.

Hsu committed suicide via charcoal asphyxiation in June, 2012. Chen believes that Hsu haunts the property, which forced Chen to sell the unit at a 40-percent discount.

The plaintiff believes that the house was depreciated as a direct result of the suicide, and that his claims were proven true based on the lack of both purchasing and leasing interest in the unit. This forced Chen to sell the house for NT$6 million, when he could have received NT$10 million instead, he argued.

Holding Hsu accountable for the loss, the plaintiff pursued a lawsuit against Hsu's parents, requesting NT$3 million in compensation for damages suffered during the ordeal.

After hearing the case, the Taipei District Court dismissed the suit, finding the defendants free of responsibility after deeming that there was no legal ground for Chen's claim.

The court stated that the suicide itself did not cause any damage to the property, nor did the action violate any of the ownership rights of the landlord. Furthermore, the selling price of the property in question was set at Chen's own accord, which was reduced possibly as a result of personal psychological factors and beliefs, which means that the loss can be only deemed as an economic loss.

The lawsuit was dismissed as it had no grounds under the first part of Article 184 under the Civil Code, which states: “A person who, intentionally or negligently, has wrongfully damaged the rights of another is bound to compensate him for any injury arising therefrom. The same rule shall be applied when the injury is done intentionally in a manner against the rules of morals.” - China Post


Something spooky's going on in British homes...

Whenever you move to a new house, it can take a little while to get used to the strange sounds that emanate from buildings - particularly older ones. Rumbling pipes, creaky floorboards and tapping in the walls are all things we might have to get used to. However, research* conducted on our behalf shows that for some homeowners, these are more than just property quirks: they're signs of ghostly goings-on.

According to the poll of more than 1,800 UK adults, one in eight (15.3%) Brits think their home is haunted. That's more than 7.7 million people who believe they have a supernatural house guest.

The most common 'haunting' that these Brits experience is the feeling of having a 'presence' in their home, with nearly half of those who think their home is haunted claiming they sense another ‘being’ living there. Added to this, almost a third of haunted house residents claim to have experienced strange chills.

If you find yourself reading this with a sceptical hat on, then things are about to get even more interesting. One in five people sharing their home with a supernatural entity said they have had things in their house move on their own, and 15.7% say they have actually seen something they consider to be 'ghostly' with their own eyes.

Are we all this troubled by the things that go bump in the night? It would appear there are some differences based on the age and location of our survey participants. In London, for example, 39.4% report ghostly goings-on at home, but in the North West they're generally a bit more sceptical, with only 11% saying the same. Younger people are more likely to believe in ghosts too, it seems. One in three aged 18 to 24 believe they live in a haunted house, but this falls to just 5.4% among those over the age of 55.

Respondents identified a death in the house, or the property being built in an already-haunted place, as a potential cause of having a live-in spectre. So will this start to affect whether superstitious Brits move into a property or not? If only ghosts could be used to circumvent the bedroom tax! - Ocean Finance
