In 2018, Mentor, Ohio Police Officer Mike Malaney was called out to investigate an incident involving a strange woman captured on a baby monitor in a family's home. (Photo included)
While sleeping, the parents were alerted to something in their daughter's room. Upon checking the monitor, they observed a strange woman dressed in white clothes, with her hair pulled back, in the room, looking down at their baby. They immediately rushed into the room to find that there was nobody there. The room was completely empty. They called police and Officer Malaney soon arrived and began a perimeter check but found no evidence of forced entry. He also found that the house was clear. The parents had no idea who the woman was and the case remains open and unexplained to this day.
Derek Hayes, of the Monsters Among Us Podcast, one of the shows hosts, noted:
“This still from the baby monitor, this is terrifying. Now obviously there shouldn’t be anybody in there yet there we have a clear picture of an elderly woman in, possibly, a nightgown, looking over this crib. Now if you zoom in on the face, there's just something odd about it. The face the woman is making, it just doesn't look like a comfortable face. Just something about the entire image is just terribly upsetting.”
Curiously, Officer Malaney was also involved in a bizarre case in this same general area involving a ghost child that happened on March 10, 2021. This case received widespread coverage from the news media at the time.
