Following hot on the heels of developments mentioned immediately below this post, the matter concerned was kindly picked up by the 'Black Country Evening Mail' newspaper and an appeal for info. on the mystery photograph made therein: ARTICLE
As a direct result of this piece, the WMGC received an email yesterday from a woman who informs us that the trio featured in the photograph are her daughter, Son-In-Law and their first child who had previously lived at the address involved with the case. The image concerned dates from some 17 yrs ago and was one of a pair that were taken at the time in question. Sadly, the shot was lost down the rear of the fireplace in the living room of the property and viewed as irretrievable, etc. The woman concerned has lindly supplied us with a shot of the 'other' polaroid taken at the time (shown above against the backdrop of the Birm. Mail article).
Needless to say - we are very thankful to the source concerned for contacting us and taking the time to explain the situation and so forth. Having passed the data on to the people involved in the poltergeist case, a question has been raised as to 'why' the photograph concerned chose to basically 'wait 17 yrs' to put in an appearance again!?! And how much of a coincidence would it take - as a naturally occurring event - to simply work free of its prison of almost 2 decades and quite randomly fall into the position it was discovered in.......?
A final note on the overall matter is the fact that the occupants of the property have grown weary of the activity experienced over recent weeks and - as of last Saturday (March 22nd) vacated the house for good. It goes without saying that we wish them every joy - and absolute peace, of course - at their new address!
