THE BOTHELL HELL HOUSE
THE HAUNTING THAT GRIPPED AMERICA
The Bothell Haunting is the most controversial haunting America has seen.
It was in (2012) that resident Keith Linder and his partner Tina excitedly moved into their new home.
It wasn't long before the couple began to suspect something was not quite right. First they heard a child's voice although there were no children in the property or joining property. Although convinced the voice echoed from within the house, Keith dashed outside to see if any children were playing or passing by on the street. There were none.
Over the months that followed Keith and Tina claim to have been subjected to all manner of Paranormal occurrences and devastating poltergeist destruction resulting in almost daily defacer of their home causing untold damage and affecting their relationship.
Keith requested help from several paranormal investigation teams and even approached the church for assistance. Initially the church seemed quite unresponsive to the urgency of the matter.
Keith and Tina became frustrated and eventually drove to the church and refused to move until they had been heard, it was 4hrs hours later when finally a meeting took place and a fortnight later the first exorcism was performed.
Keith and Tina also received another offer of help. This time in the form of Father Roy, an Episcopalian priest, who having heard of Keith and Tina's plight agreed to perform a second exorcism on both the house and this time also on Keith Linder himself.
Keith's story also caught the attention of GHOST ADVENTURES Zac Bagans who decided to shoot an episode of GHOST ADVENTURES investigating Keith's story.
The GHOST ADVENTURES TEAM did their investigation and the show aired however they failed to uncover any evidence to support Keith an Tina's claims, it was soon afterwards accusations of hoaxing began to emerge.
With his reputation damaged and thus far void of any independent verifiable evidence, Keith was desperate to secure evidence that paranormal activity was still occurring in his home. Keith looked outside the USA for anyone who could help repair his reputation and show that his home really was haunted.
It was when Keith made contact with Steve Mera from the UK that this story truly does take a turn. Steve Mera and Don Philips following several interviews with Keith agreed to take on his case warning him that if they were to uncover any foul play then they would expose it.
Parapsychologist Mera remained open minded but would take some convincing however, Steve had a secret weapon to bring on this investigation in the form of Don Philips, a specialist in paranormal research. Described as both unique in his abilities as well as being thought to be a catalyst, Don Philips has a solid reputation of drawing out startling evidence from haunted locations.
Mera and Philips spent several days on location with Keith in the Bothell house employing scientific rational investigative techniques combined with the abilities of Don Philips.
The evidence uncovered during the investigation is remarkable to the point Steve Mera requested Nick kyle who was then (President of Sottish Society Of Parapsychology) to fly from the UK to confirm Steve's own findings as an independent observer.
This documentary takes viewers on a fascinating journey which not only shows Keith's plight but also the investigation and remarkable un doctored evidence obtained, thus providing a very real tantalising insight into the realms of which are often spoken of but seldom seen,
The communications I encountered with the differing entities at the Bothell House were not unique to me, spirit communication and Paranormal Research has been my forte for many years.
Although Steve Mera and myself are unable to validate claims prior to our involvement with the Linder case I'm confident in the fact we were able to assist Keith and validate at least in part disturbances were taking place which would not be expected within a normal household environment.
The disturbances that manifested in this suburban Seattle home were perplexing and profoundly evident. A rather complex and challenging investigation due to its media interest and parties involved in the attempt to unravel the mystery surrounding this newly built four bedroom house. A mystery left unsolved, as to why such regular and extreme paranormal occurrences took place. This beautiful home set against the backdrop of Mount Rainier had an almost sinister feel as soon as darkness fell. An instinctual emotion one should probably never ignore...
Former President of the Scottish Society for Psychical Research
I was a completely independent observer during Don and Steve's second visit to Bothell, travelling from the UK at my own expense with one agreement: to tell the truth of what I would witness there, regardless. So here it is for the record: I experienced paranormality in that house without evidence of fraud. I saw that Steve was conscientious as an investigator, Don was fascinating with his EVP communications, and Keith was an engaging host.
THE BOTHELL HOUSE
Many Investigators and visitors claim to have experienced unexplained occurrences in the Bothell House such as objects reportedly moving. One such person was Patty Hale who assisted on the investigation.
An interesting event happened when I visited Keith Linder in the spring of 2016. Both of us were sitting at his dinning room table having a conversation when suddenly we noticed that the chandelier over the table was swinging back and forth on its own. It was not subtle. It was as if it was pushed hard and deliberately. We just sat there, shocked and amazed at the same time. We had no rational explanation for it. No windows or doors were open, neither of us bumped it, and we were the only ones in the house. It sure did get our attention!
