The Watseka Wonder

In a conversation with Dr. E. W. Stevens about her former life, Lurancy Vennum, possessed by the spirit of Mary Roff, speaks of the time she had cut her arm with a knife. She asks if he had ever seen where she did it. He says no, and so she proceeds to slip up her sleeve as if to exhibit a scar, but suddenly arrests the movement. She quickly adds, "This is not the arm: that one is in the ground."

ha! rather hilarious ghostly error but a fascinating story...I had not heard of this one before...I just watched "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" last night after hearing about the real case which occurred in Germany in the 70's. (thought it was an excellent film)

We loved Emily Rose. The soundtrack is pretty awesome too.
