Swimming in Sh*t - The Jennifer Arnold Case – Part 1

It seems that my last report caused quite a stir in the paranormal community. That was not my intention at all. I hoped a provocative post would encourage a lively discussion of the topic. It sunk into a pit of name calling, sword rattling and shameful actions on the part of some of the people who posted comments.

The course of action taken by Mr. Robinson is a sad one and I hope he does find the peace that he seeks.

Now let’s get on with the story …

For those of you in the paranormal community you would have to be living under a rock not to know about the Jennifer Arnold case. There are many web sites, Face Book pages and radio shows about the subject. Even Dave Schrader has done more than one show on the matter.

I have viewed the blogs and took a close look at her book A DEMON WALKS ON SACRED GROUND. I have listened to a CD of the various EVPs that she has recorded. I have looked at the photos she has posted and even had some professionally studied. I have had the opportunity to view audio and video footage that was shot at Mrs. Arnold's home the night of Mr. Robinson's visit. I have talked to the paranormal groups that have visited the home and taken a look at their proof (audio, video, photographs). I have interviewed Mr. Robinson through many email exchanges. I have talked to some of the leading paranormal and demon experts. After all this, I feel that I have a good grasp of the case. 

In a nutshell (a very small one) as Mrs. Arnold's book is only 47 pages she writes her life story. We learn that Mrs. Arnold had a less than perfect childhood. There was a moderate level of dysfunction within her home as she grew up. She was close to a relative that was of Native American descent and she shared stories with Jennifer about her life and gifts and tales of her religion.

At the age of 17, Jennifer and a friend made a spirit board and began talking to spirits. The girls freely allowed them in. Over time things the spirits said would happen began taking place. Jennifer got married and had two sons. In the Arnold home, things started to happen. Cupboards and drawers opened and closed, the children saw spirits, and many more events frightened the family. So they decided they had to move into a new home that was built for the family. But the spirits followed them.

Jennifer started to ghost hunt and took photos. She also began recording them in order to engage the spirits in a conversation. Things only got worse. Mrs. Arnold was very vocal about events in her home and started to share them on MySpace and a web site dedicated to her book.

Many paranormal groups have been to her home and have tried to remove the demon/demons (depending upon whom you talk to). After a few weeks the demon/demons returns, often stronger than before.

There have been rumors that John Zaffis went to her home and fled, or that he could not get on a plane to fly to her Florida home. Some have said that Dwayne Claud was scared and also refused the case. From the information I have uncovered both stories are false.

So what can we say about those who have been to her home before August, 2011?

1. They had good intentions. I personally know most of them.

2. They might have been in over their heads.

3. They should never have gone there in the first place.

4. They did their job but something and or someone let the demon/demons back in.

Back in the summer of 2011 Mr. Robinson informed me that he had logged into his old MySpace account and received a message from Mrs. Arnold concerning her case. A few years before that he had exchanged emails with her. Mr. Robinson said that if he ever was in her area, he would take a look at her case. She began to publicize that he was coming and an exorcism was going to take place.

Due to this, Kirby was approached by Ryan Harshbarger, a young paranormal investigator with aspirations to do a TV series entitled PROJECT FEAR. Mr. Harshbarger wanted to know if Kirby had any cases that he could film for a pilot to be sold to network TV. Kirby informed him of the Jennifer Arnold case but it was up to her to allow filming. Mrs. Arnold immediately agreed.

The final element was set when Leon Wilkes was added since he had been in contact with Mrs. Arnold and she felt that he should be there.

Mr. Robinson and Mr. Wilkes arrived around 1 to 2 pm that Friday, August 26, 2011. Mr. Robinson stated that the demon/demons was ready for attack as soon as they stepped through the front door. What they did not know was that Mrs. Arnold had been asking around on the web about how to ramp things up when it comes to demons. This was solely for the purpose of needing a good show. Well, Mrs. Arnold got one.

I have viewed the footage that was shot the first night as it seems that would be the only night of filming. The cameraman left on Saturday for a swimsuit shoot on the beach. We only have stills from day two and some audio recorded on a digital recorder for the second day.

This footage may never be shown in public because nobody signed release forms! Why this was Mr. Robinson he did not know. He was asked to sign one page contract with a talent agency in Oregon called Irish Eyes Promotions. The agent/owner is Carolina Aitken. The contract was for the remainder of 2011 and made no mention about anything concerning the filming of the events. I have talked to some of Mr. Harshbarger's paranormal team members who stated to me that they will not sign any release form and Mr. Robinson stated he would not either. Let me share with you what I witnessed on the tapes as well as what others said after they viewed it.

1. Dogs barking and scratching on the walls. There were no dogs in the house at the time.

2. Doors slamming in the background.

3. Figures that appear to be silhouettes.

4. In a spare bedroom where prayers were being said, seen in the mirror is an image of a crucifix bathed in red light. This is not a photograph but the crucifix appears to be three dimensional.

5. Many subjective moments of hot spots, cold spots, being poked and pinched.

6. There is an interesting moment that no one reacts to. A shot of a dark hallway with at least two of the investigators standing there and many forms behind their heads are clearly visible.

At times the video focuses on Mr. Robinson reciting prayers. There is a ghost box and you hear the following:

KILL HIM!

IDIOT!

FOOL!

I KNOW THAT!

BLANK YOU AND SHUT THE BLANK UP!

Those are some of the phrases that you hear and they are all very audible.

But watch closely and observe that nothing comes close to Mrs. Arnold at all. She shows no reaction to things, which is odd. Because she is in the path of holy water being thrown. No reaction. She holds a cross. No reaction. She holds a prayer book – and no reaction.

Even the second day deliverance which we got to look at only photos. Mrs. Arnold shows no reaction to holy water, no reaction to the bible, no reaction to the cross, no reaction to the prayers, no reaction to laying on of hands. Why? (This will be explained in Part 2.)

After the publication of my previous blog the attacks leveled at Mr. Robinson concerning his actions at the home I feel were done unfairly. Let's focus on these events.

At least 8 to 10 demons were encountered in the home including some spirits of dead people - which will become very important in Part 2.

Some demons had been removed while others had not. Mr. Robinson informed Mrs. Arnold that she needed to do the following things to keep them from returning, and at some point the rest had to be removed.

1. Stop talking publicly about her case.

2. Take her web site down about her book which featured photos of her case.

3. Stop Tweeting about the case and close the Twitter account.

4. Close her MySpace account about her case. Close her Face Book page about her case.

5. Stop taking photos of the sprit activity in the home.

6. Begin deliverance therapy.

None of those things were ever done until February 2012. And even then not all steps have been completed.

An issue was brought up about what was done in her son's room during the investigation. An illegal substance was found. Use of such a substance can be a door for demons to enter people's lives and home. There is a photo of this substance taken by a member of Mr. Harshbarger's team.

Mr. Robinson was concerned about said substance and its potential to bring any and all demons back into the house. Anything less than removal of a demon is never the goal of anyone. I have heard the playback of the audio recording made by his phone. What he attempted to do was keep demons located in the son's room until a proper team could come back after she had taken the steps asked of her.

We close with a recent post about her book which is taken from Mrs. Arnold's Face Book page.

"there are a few typos I had to sign a voucher that I accept it the way it is....I had a book signing and two radio shows lined up...again I dont claim to be an author...just a normal housewife with a very evil abnormal life...just trying to make it just like everyone else in this dog eat fog world!!!!!"

Swimming in Sh*t – The Jennifer Arnold Case - Part 2 will be coming next week!

I've spoken to Ms. Arnold personally and in the few conversations we did have, I can say I seriously questioned her mental health. I don't mean to be disrespectful, just honest. I believe she needs far more than spiritual help.

Oh, excellent artical by the way. Very informative.

Hey Leon she made a fool out of you and you should have known better than to take this case on. You better keep your real job. Any good exorcist would have known she was sick and only wanted fame.

It is disappointing to see such an attack on any individual who believes they may have a problem and divulge personal information while seeking help. Doesn't matter who the person is and if there is or isn't a problem. That individual trusted the person who was there to help. Obviously that person chose to throw a client under the bus. Shame on Eye on the Paranormal. Real journalists use their real name and offers up documents to back up ALL their statements. Otherwise it's just rumors.

Anonymous said...

Oh it's not rumors, and there is positive physical evidence, just because we wont share with you doesn't mean we don't have that, and more.

I have in my possession material sent to me that has not been given to anyone YET :)

Its really not her as much as the people like Leon who couldn't help a kitten out of wet paper bag! Nor could such a pretender clear a home or help a mentally compromised person.

I guess she made a fool out of Kirby Robinson too. He was the first one to come running.

Bobnoxious said...

Well it has been confirmed: The next wave of Paranormal Douchebaggery has manifested as a sudden influx of self proclaimed exorcists ... Not your tradition (real)exists mind you but non denominational, multi-faith exorcists no less...just to be sure sure they don't offend anybody and remain as PC as possible with their demon vanquishing.

What a joke.

Anonymous said...

Kirby may have did the 1st one but he new better the 2nd time around but for Leon he went back for more. It go's to show you how smart a demon can be and all you paranormal people out there get over yourselves you have no clue what you are doing. I hope its worth the price.

I have to say, seems some never grow tired of this bs! If you weren't there then how would you know? I also find it interesting that you were able to view "lost" footage or was that a lie? Seems that I recall being told a computer had crashed and ALL footage from the Jennifer Arnold investigation was lost! Curious to what exactly you viewed and if it was the real evidence. Or, was it always there hibernating waiting til things died down? Hmmmmmm. I recognize who you are by your choice of words and wonder???? Do you actually sleep at night??? I doubt it! You probably sit up for countless hours and try to think of ways to deceive people or "friends". All I can say is, it will come full circle ;)

Why don't you try th TRUTH once in a while? It might get you somewhere!

You forgot there were copy's sent to others who have remained quiet, guess what? They got sick of seeing what a farce this whole situation has become and they got that "lost" evidence to me through different contacts ( Thank you, you know who you are)I've not yet decided what I am going to do with what I have ;)

Jennifer will soon be coming out with her next book. The Devil lives inside me and still does. I really hope you get some real help.

Let's get serious about this folks..this is a real problem in the field of faith and deliverance.I know of several people (women) and yes, I am a woman, who are encouraged by the attention they get from their so called cases. I for one, appreciate the honesty and balls Kirby has for speaking the truth. All of you anti Kirby folk..where do WE draw the line? How much time, money and effort do we put into cases, how many teams need to show up before somebody has the courage to tell the truth. These people like Ms Arnold feed the energy with attention to it! I for one have better things to do with my time than try to figure out who or what is controlling what in their homes when they run around taking a zillion photos and EVP's to post on FB. Let's expose them by telling the truth and save us all valuable time, money and sanity. Not to mention the onslaught of nasty comments by idiots who have nothing better to do.
Please, just STOP TALKING if you have never experienced this. You have no clue what is really gong on! The SPAM I get on my FB account about the books, the interviews and the blah, blah, blah, makes me want to barf! It makes a joke out of serious business. Go ahead, call me what you want..Not compassionate, probably a bitch? Nope just tired of dealing with the MORONS!

I've noticed that as of late February 2012 Ms. Arnold claims (in a nutshell) that there is no longer any paranormal activity in her home and she's abandoned her old FB page and set up another page just for friends and supporters. With that, I have a few questions.

#1 What or who was the catalyst that made her pesky demons disappear?

#2 If indeed she plans on another book and indeed it's entitled, "The Devil Lives Inside Me," what is she saying exactly? That the entire ordeal was all in her mind? After all, she couldn't be referring to physical spiritual possession. Apparently scripture, holy water or crucifixes never affected her. I mean, she says on her FB page that everything is gone, said and done, right? So what does the title of that book refer to exactly?

I'm in agreement, this woman has issues. Hell, maybe even the entire subscription.

I know Kirby and I believe Kirby. He's a good man. All he tried to do was help. It seems to me Ms. Arnold wanted only attention, sympathy and maybe cash, but mostly attention. She failed to listen to any advice to rid herself of this situation and I do believe she attempted to stir sh*t up. Demons have proven they don't respond or react on demand and who would want to look like a fool? "I don't get it Kirby? They were just here yesterday? I swear!"

Pffttt.

LMAO!! ahh nothing like the community taking a closer look, GOOD, they can see this woman and her posse are so full of sh*t and to attack Kirby is par for the course when these frauds and liars get called out, You ALL keep right on doing a great job- Kirby, X, Lisa, Lisa Reap, Michael, Michael

Bobnoxious said...

"Please stop talking if you've never experienced this"... or if you actually require quantifiable, tangle proof to validate these outlandish demonic infestation stories.LOL

Anonymous said...

@bobnoxious, you mean you don't buy it? whaaaat? I have been watching these demon screamers for a while and the only thing they have been able to prove is that fiction sells and God help me, Reap is looking more and more right all the time!

Bobnoxious said...

I think most with a modicum of common sense would have dismissed this type of farce long before Reap ever bored us.

The Jezebel spirit is sociopath. Behaviors you might see (3 or more):

1. They gain power by destroying others. It is like an adrenalin rush when they “win” over someone. They manage to get in positions of authority, and are difficult to displace, once there.

2. They are controlling, manipulative, bossy.

3. they can either be war-like in their personalities, so that they are intimidating,

or

so “sweet,” “perfect,” deceitful, “timid” and sneaky, they are able to fool and recruit others to join them. Sometimes they can be very charming and charismatic.

4. critical of others, vicious to the point of bloodthirsty.

5. they are never wrong.

6. They recruit others in their charges against their victims. They act to persuade recruits, and do not give up this activity until the recruits are won over. If the potential recruits do not cooperate and buy into things, this angers them.

7. they are narcissistic. While they can tend to be oversensitive themselves, they have no concern for the feelings of others. They are not sympathetic to their victims, and tend to play the role of victim themselves, in order to gain sympathy. This way the real victim is left stranded, and opposed by others if they ask for help. Being the center of attention really pleases them.

8. they lie, and they believe their own lie. Avoiding the truth, or intentionally acting to withhold truth is part of this. false picture is presented to others.

9. impulsive, failure to plan ahead. chaotic at times

10. lack of remorse after hurting someone. they justify the harm.

11. consistent irresponsibility.

12. irritability, aggressiveness (open , or subtle), can be quick tempered.

13. failure to conform to social norms. person is an “outlier” or non-conformist. has their own ways.

14. psychological counseling will not help, since they deny what they are.

15. claims to religious sentiments, but very superficial in devotion. Born-again status is debatable, and unlikely, but would have to be evaluated on an individual basis.
