some paranormal mysteries that have continued to baffle the experts. But as always, before we dive into

a mere 200 meters from home. While the family dealt
with their grief their home became the site of one of Australia’s most perplexing
paranormal mysteries. 40 days after Michael’s
death his family noticed something odd in his old bedroom, a strange oil appeared to
be weeping from the walls. The oil later spread to
other rooms in the house. According to the family
on a few occasions the oil has spelled out messages
such as Michael’s name and birth date. The oil also appears to from
religious symbols sometimes. Michael’s family believes
he was chosen by God to return to heaven to be
a messenger between humans and the divine. Ever since the weeping walls
became international news believers have been trekking
to the home in hopes that the oil will grant
them their own miracles. One woman ventured to
the Sydney home hoping to receive help with her
struggles to conceive a child. One month after praying
in the home she returned to inform the family that her
prayers had been answered. Skeptics believed that
the substance weeping from the walls is anything but miraculous. People from around the world have stated that walls can weep from
materials under the paint or leaks in the ceiling or pipes. However, extensive testing by the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese has been unable to
locate a plausible source within the structure of the house. Testing of the oil itself has determined that the liquid is made up of water, gold and a safe level of uranium. Archbishop Paul Saliba
believes that the oil weeping from the home’s walls has
no earthly explanation. According to him it’s
nothing short of miraculous. Some paranormal mysteries have
been unsolved for decades. In the case of the Atlas
Vampire no one’s been able to come up with a good answer
since the case first came into the public’s eye over a century ago. In 1932, a woman named Mini, living in an area of
Stockholm known as Atlas realized that she hadn’t seen or heard from her neighbor, Lilly Lindestrom, for a few days. Lilly lived alone and
worked as a prostitute so Mini was understandably concerned about her friend’s safety. She decided to call the police and have them enter Lilly’s
room to investigate. When the police entered
the room they sadly found Lilly’s deceased body
lying face down on the bed. The body was naked and her
clothes were folded neatly on a chair near the bed. When police examined
the body they determined that Lilly had been killed
by a blunt blow to the head. Unfortunately, it isn’t
uncommon for sex workers to meet a violent end, however, upon further investigation police quickly determined that Lilly’s case wasn’t an average murder. One of the things that
police often look for when investigating a murder
is the pattern of blood in and around the crime scene. However, there wasn’t a speck
of blood in Lilly’s room. In fact, medical investigators determined that there wasn’t even
blood in Lilly’s body. Someone had drained
every last drop from her. They also found saliva
on her face and neck which led many to believe
that she’d been the victim of a vampire. Skeptics point out that this detail could be easily explained
by Lilly’s line of work but not all of the clues can
be easily explained away. For example, police later
found a blood stained ladle in the apartment that could’ve been used to drink Lilly’s blood. Despite heavy news coverage
of the Atlas Vampire and an extensive investigation, the identity of Lilly’s
killer remains a mystery. Not all paranormal
mysteries are frightening. Some mysteries that have
been part of local folklore for centuries are more
intriguing than terrifying. One example of such a
mystery is the Chir Batti. In the Kutchhi-Sindhi language, Chir Batti means ghost lights. The term refers to mysterious lights that have been spotted
near the Banni Grasslands, the marshy wetlands and adjoining desert near the India-Pakistan border. Residents of the area have been spotting the
lights for centuries. The Chir Batti only appear
on very dark nights, usually after eight p.m. When they show up there
can be no mistaking them. Locals who have witnessed the lights state that they can be as
bright as a mercury lamp. Typically, they’re seen
between two and 10 feet off the ground and appear
as a ball of light, although some have reported
a more pear-shaped light. The color of the lights can vary with witnesses reporting lights of blue, red and yellow. Sometimes the lights stay still in the air but can move as fast as an arrow. Numerous people have
stated that when they saw the Chir Batti it almost seemed as if the lights were following them or attempting a playful
game of hide and seek. While the lights are typically harmless they have led to problems at times. People who are unfamiliar with the lights could mistake them for
lights from the road and end up getting lost in
the jungle or salt flats. Modern science seems to
have debunked the legends of ghost lights that have been
passed down for generations. The typical explanation
of the phenomenon states that they’re caused by
oxidation of phosphine, diphosphine and methane. These compounds are often released when organic materials begin to decay and can spontaneously ignite
when they touch the air. Despite this scientific explanation, many who see the Chir Batti are still awed by it’s paranormal beauty. The case of Cornelia Zangheri Bandi is one of the longest paranormal mysteries to still plague the experts. Her bizarre death has
gone unsolved since 1731. Cornelia was an Italian
noble woman born in 1664. During her lifetime she
married and had seven children, two of whom would go on to
become important figures in the Catholic Church. However, these children were
not the most noteworthy part of her legacy. Instead, Cornelia would
be known and remembered for the unusual way in
which she died at age 66. On Cornelia’s last night alive
her dinner companions noted that she seemed unusually lethargic. They didn’t read into her
behavior all that much assuming that she had
consumed too much brandy. Cornelia was known to be a heavy drinker and often applied brandy
mixed with camphor to her body to relieve pain. After dinner her maid
helped her to her room where the two spent three
hours prying together. This was a normal part
of the countess’ routine and also raised no red flags. However, Cornelia failed
to appear at the usual time the following morning. The maid went into Cornelia’s bed chambers to check on her where she
made a startling discovery. Nearly every surface of the
room was covered in soot. The maid discovered a pile
of ash a few feet away from the bed. This heap, along with a
few assorted body parts was all that remained of the countess. Many assumed that the
countess had burnt to death. The bed sheets suggested
that she had risen at some point during the
night and an oil lamp was found in the room. However, further inspection
showed that the lamp was empty of oil. In addition, the fabrics
and other surfaces in the room were covered in
soot but otherwise undamaged. How could Cornelia have burnt to death without singeing other
flammable items in the room? Many believe that the death of Countess Cornelia Zangheri
Bandi is an early example of the phenomenon known as
spontaneous human combustion, a peculiar anomaly in
which the human body seems to catch fire without any
external source of ignition. There have been numerous documented cases over the years and
experts are yet to stumble upon a reasonable
explanation for the deaths. Before we get to that number one spot and take a look at a truly
baffling seance mystery, remember to hit that subscribe button and turn on channel notifications. That way you’ll be completely up to date with all our latest content. (mouse button clicking) Beginning in the 1850s a
spirit known as John King was alleged to appear
regularly during seances held by mediums Franc
Hearne and Charles Williams. In 1870, they took a new medium under their wing, Florence Cook. It’s said that Florence
soon began manifesting a different spirit, Katie King, believed to be John King’s daughter. At the seances run by Florence, believers would gather in a dimly lit room with no one else present in the house. Spiritualists believe that
spirits would only appear under these specific conditions, but skeptics asserted
that it was just a ruse to hide the fact that
the seances were a hoax. The medium, in this case, Florence, would be
secluded in a dark space, usually a large cabinet or bedroom. After a time the spirit
of Katie King would emerge to interact with the believers, even touching their hands. Often, the guests would be
shown the covered figure of the medium lying in the cabinet, however, the figure was never uncovered, allowing skeptics to speculate about what was really under the fabric? At one seance investigator,
William Volckman, attended on behalf of a rival medium in an effort to discredit Florence. He noted that Katie looked
very similar to Florence and rose from his chair during the seance to grab the spirit by the waist. He accused her of being a fraud. The others in the room wrestled her away and returned her to the cabinet. They later hired another investigator, Sir William Crookes, for support. During some seances
with Crookes the spirit of Katie King allowed herself
to be weighed and measured. The measurements varied
but Katie was always taller than Florence and had
a different complexion. Some believers insisted
that at times they could see both Katie and Florence together clearly and that it was impossible for Florence to be masquerading as a spirit. Florence Cook and Katie
King caused a great deal of controversy in their time, but the truth about their
seances remains a mystery. If you want more paranormal

  1. To be fair, they don't say what these experts are experts in. For example, an expert psychologist might be baffled by the Riemann hypothesis. Just because you're a baffled expert doesn't mean your bafflement stems from your chosen field.

  2. Why do they never show the "messages" and this guy isnt a messanger of God that's just completely ridiculous!!!!! But whatever they need to do to make themselves feel better about their loved one passing

  3. She didn't have a single drop of blood in her body…Skeptics said this could be easily explained by her line of work (prostitution)…what?!?

  4. The "miraculous oil" is interesting to me. I've had the same looking oil substance on my walls a lot in the past few months. My parents told me that it's probably our dryer.

  5. Hey I have a picture my daughter took with my phone of some kind of entity… How can I send the picture to you so you can use it in yr next video? Please let me know or email me at [email protected]… How I can send the pic to you? Please and thank you! You're awesome love yr channel I always tune in when I'm not busy with the kids lol….

  6. With the hot flashes I suffered during menopause, I thought my obituary would read, "stephney died from spontaneous combustion".

  7. Slapped Ham…you're the man! This is the only paranormal channel I'm subscribed to. I can never wait to see what's next.

  8. Because of the lack of testing they had for this kind stuff back then, couldnt the Atlas Vampire, in theory, killed her in her bathtub? And, depending on how heavy the ladle was, could it theoretically be the blunt force murder weapon?

    All just questions and theories please dont roast me lol

  9. Also slapped ham while I love your channel I often find as a half skeptic you just jump straight into the folklore/tales without any criticism or skepticism , it’s straight in with “the boy was thrown across the room, and the 4 eyed witch appeared and put a curse on him” I’m not trolling I just think you know a little better and should maybe include your thoughts on the clip instead of always asking us or referencing the baffled experts, it’s not that I don’t believe the stories it’s more there is no opposition to these incredible claims , thank you for reading my constructive criticism

  10. Slapped Ham has evolved so much, it's getting better and better every day, but you never lose your essence! That's so nice! Been here for a while, and will be for a looong time. Love your videos 🙂

  11. Human combustion was proven to be fake BUT, we can burn like a candle like a pig, due to our body fat in the right conditions.

  12. Pretty sure having religious folk performing "scientific" testing on things imparts a significant bias and shouldn't be taken seriously.

  13. If I ever called myself an expert, then I don’t think there should be anything in that field of said expertise that should baffle. 🤔

  14. the Chivadi lights in India and Pakistan remind me of a similar entity called St. Elmo's Fire. these fireballs usually appear over tracts of land that are subjects of family feuds or court cases involving ownership of the said land that have been ongoing for years or decades and the original owners have been dead for a very long time.

  15. "Over a century ago"
    "In 1932"

    That's only 86-87 years, depending on the month. Last I checked, a century is 100 years. I love your content, but script your narration better.

  16. The miracle oil reminds me of a case I heard of years ago. It was of a young girl who was bed ridden. She couldn't move at all. And was just laying in her bed. And what people found odd was that she never got any cysts or anything like that even though she was in bed. And she cried oil, and that oil supposedly made miracles happen. People got cured, whatever someone was praying for was granted. It was passed on the news. And a few samples were taken to be examined and I think even a priest had once visited her to document it and to see for himself if it was true.
    That girl was practically treated like a living saint.

  17. Silly me, I 'm walking 2 10ths of a mile in the woods after watching this. I have a large dog with me but he is blind. I left my flashlight at home😦😲😱

  18. The #1 slot… I wonder if this is simply a case of willful Astral Projection or Bi-Location. Usually Bi-Locators tend to be more or less consciously aware of their Magickal abilities. Maybe this woman in question learned of and about her Astral Projection or Bi-Location ability early on in her life and decided to turn it into a lucrative business format.

  19. Damn Experts. The lady who spontaneous combusted? A demon set her a blaze. An expert should know that. Need to change their job title to a, "Somewhat Know It All". Or "Plain Old Know It All".

  20. that medium had a twin sister, or it was another person that they used. None, NONE of those seances back then were on the level. they were all scams.

  21. MF has a uranium mine basically. For the record, if I find a source of uranium I'm not telling no MF body. Shit I can't even find my son's dad fuck uranium and gold shit.

  22. Y'all know vampires are real right? Not monster but real humans that do shit like this. It's not BS I'll tell you that

  23. Ten thousand people see the oil and not one can take a picture of the message it spells out. They must have cell phones there.

  24. nigga ur channel glowing all and shit but every damn video yall got baffling experts? ain't no goddamn experts if they bafflin and shit fuck is yo talking about

  25. The Countess probably spontaneously combusted and burnt to a crisp for forcing her maid to pray for 3 hours every night.

  26. I noticed that the movie Drive Angry has a cast that have names that are very similar to the names of people in the #1 spot's story in this video.

  27. Those lights are found everywhere there's swampland, they call them willow wisp where I'm from,leaves and organic matter decays under the muddy water and is only able to surface after it builds up and when it breaks the surface the O2 ignites it and it stays in a ball form till assll gas burns up,in Latin it's called ignis fautuis false light

  28. if someone, a HUMAN, been drinking her blood, she must have been alive during the process. imho. gruesome and horrifying. then that person struck her head and left. somehow she was unable to move. I rule out drugging her if the blood was to be drunk.
