‘M’ Is for Mysterious Marks

Benjamin Radford is a research fellow at the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry and author or coauthor of nine books, including Bad Clowns.

Q: I was talking with a friend who lives in another state with her husband and fourteen-yearold daughter, M. She said M has had some strange paranormal things happening to her, and others have witnessed it. Strange blue marks appear on the walls throughout the house. It’s not paint, marker, pen, or chalk, but magic eraser takes them off the walls. And no, it’s not their daughter, as some of the places where the marks appear are up way too high. They had a clergyperson bless the house, who also suggested that this “presence” is following the daughter since it’s happened in more than one house. I’m pretty much at a loss of what even to suggest to my friend. Do you have any suggestions?
