Indianapolis Star reporter Marisa Kwiatkowski wrote the story about the “Hell House” exorcisms of Latoya Ammons and the trouble she had with her home and children in story from January 2014. That story was huge garnering international coverage. It became the most popular story the paper covered. Ever. And interest continues.
When it published in January, “The exorcisms of Latoya Ammons” became an instant sensation. I fielded hundreds of calls and emails from people all over the world. Movie and TV producers clamored to connect with Ammons for the right to tell her story. Zak Bagans, host and executive producer of “Ghost Adventures” on the Travel Channel, was so intrigued that he bought the Carolina Street home in Gary, Ind., where the family says many of the events occurred.
“The exorcisms of Latoya Ammons” is now the most-read piece in The Indianapolis Star’s history. Not bad for an article that almost never published.
She adds some details about how it came about. She must assume everyone is telling the truth. I also do not think it is a hoax, I think these people are living their beliefs. That’s dangerous.
I wrote up an update on what is going on at the house, now owned by Ghost Adventures’ Zak Bagans here at Randi.org: The Indiana “hell house” is off limits to proper investigation but media producers welcome – JREF.
