I looked for a thread on this and couldn't find one which surprised me.

I'd never heard this story until it was a "Paranormal Witness" episode a few nights ago. So I've been reading about it. I find it quite fascinating.

There also an mpeg out there on the information highway that claims it's a hoax!

Wondered if any other FT'ers had any thoughts on it?

The Sallie House haunting is in a class by itself. There have been full-bodied apparitions and objects flying through the air. Items have moved, been misplaced or lost only to reappear or show up later or at another location. Phantom furniture has been heard along with thumps, thuds, knocks, scratching, and the sounds of animals and disembodied human voices. Although some have been heard with the naked ear, there have been an amazing amount of EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) captured, further depicting the voices of men, women and children. Many have experienced extreme smells. Lastly, and most famously, there has been physical harm to the occupants and investigators in the form of scratches, burns and cuts. Although the majority of these attacks have often been centered on Tony Pickman, there have been a few others who have also been the focus of the physical harassment.

Investigations into this house continue, but it was initially investigated by the television show Sightings back when Tony and Debra Pickman lived there with their newborn son in 1993. Numerous psychics have entered the picture in order to help along the way, including Barbara Connor and the world-renowned Peter James who has worked on the haunting of the Queen Mary for many years. Paramount Pictures, the Travel Channel, KQ2 News out of St. Joseph, Missouri, Channel 4 News out of Kansas City, Kansas, the Discovery Channel and the Bography Channel have all been involved in documenting this story since 1993.

Some believe that what exists in the house is evil. Some believe that the entities within the house are reaching out and in need of our help. Some believe that Tony is doing it all himself (which doesn't seem like a viable assessment when the activity continues without his presence). Some believe there is much more going on there than we can imagine, and yet others think it has all been a hoax.

A multitude of monitoring equipment has been utilized to help determine what is causing the strange occurrences in this small little house on the bluffs of the Missouri River. The equipment includes, but is in no way limited to digital and analog voice recorders, infrared and heat sensitive video cameras, electromagnetic meters, environmental meters and more. Many investigative groups have used dousing rods, crystals, and pendulums. Some have tried to set up controlled ESP situations to experiment with more possibilities. Since the activity seems to be constant, some groups dedicated to learning more about the paranormal have used the house as an experimental laboratory. They have obtained some remarkable evidence, not only expanding on the history of the house but also furthering the study of paranormal activity.

What started out as the simple haunting of one little girl named Sallie has developed into a growing list. Some think that over the years more entities have come to resided with the walls of this houses. Do they just visit, do they call the place home, or has it become a doorway to the other side where the spirits we encounter move on after their visit?

This was on the old show Sightings here in the US. I belong to the Ghosts of Tombstone discussion.One of the members there Jerry Talbert is a paranormal investigator and has been ivovled off and on in investigating the place. I can't think right now of his paranormal group's name. But Google Sallie House and there should be various articles on the place.

I mentioned on the EVP (in 2007 it seems) about meeting a paranormal researcher who works with EVP. His name was Michael Esposito. He had visited the Sallie House on numerous occassions and knew the family quite well.

He played me some EVP stuff and told me how on one visit he had been scratched on the back and pushed backwards through the front door.

Laughing I believe it was half open. They were on their way in after taking a break (IIRC) and he was struck in the chest with ebough force to send him backwards and out of the door again (allegedly).
