(TheBlaze) -- It’s an eerie story of a so-called “demonic infestation” that seems so terrifying that it is perfectly suited for the pages of a horror novel. But Bob Cranmer, a former commissioner in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, insists that it was a horrific and life-altering reality for him and his family.
From a mysterious, blood-like substance coating the walls of his home to crucifixes purportedly snapping in half on their own and scratches randomly appearing on his body, Cranmer told TheBlaze earlier this year that something profoundly evil was terrorizing his family.
He claims that the demonic force was eventually expelled, but only after the Diocese of Pittsburgh, Fr. Michael Salvagna, a local priest, Protestant pastors and Adam Blai, a self-described demonologist, spent two years fervently battling its presence by repeatedly holding Mass and blessing the home.
Following the release of his new book in August detailing the purported horrors titled, “The Demon of Brownsville Road: A Pittsburgh Family’s Battle with Evil in Their Home,” Cranmer recently shared with TheBlaze photos and additional details of what unfolded.
He claims that the images, which show a range of the purported activity in the home, capture only a tiny portion of the chaos that raged.
