Joshua Higgins, 30, and Heather Brough, 25, said they believe their Highland, Michigan, home is haunted after they saw footage of what they believed to be a ghostly figure wandering around their daughter, Lily Higgins’ crib. In the video, Lily suddenly stands up and looks around as the figure appears to walk across one side of the room.
“It was chilling,” Higgins told WXYZthis link opens in a new tab. “It was literally a chill down your spine. Like that ‘what if’ factor — Is this what I just saw?’ “
The couple decided to check the footage after they found unexplained scratches on Lily’s face. Brough said she had just woke Lily from a nap when she spotted the deep “purple scratches” on the baby’s cheek.
“Seeing Lily’s face with the scratches was so bizarre and frightening,” Brough said. “I was crying, ‘What happened to you?’ I grabbed her jacket and ran over to my mother-in-law’s house. Nobody knew what happened. We wondered if she’d scratched herself, but when we put her hands up to the scratches it did not match up.”
This is not the first strange occurrence at the home, though. Brough said she has heard an “angry male voice” screaming and laughing. She recalled at least once hearing footsteps up and down the stairs as she took a shower.
“It scares us that it could do something else,” Brough told WXYZ. “I mean, there was a morning I woke up and I felt like someone’s hands were around my neck.”
