Face of Jesus spotted on newly-laid bathroom floor
ERDINGTON, Birmingham, England – When mum-of-five Freda Murphy snapped this simple picture of the new floor at her Erdington home she had no idea of the paranormal storm about to be unleashed. It was a shot taken for insurance purposes, but when Freda scanned the image she was stunned to discover the outline of a face – much like that on the Shroud of Turin (inset) – she believes to be Jesus, with a tear falling from the right eye. The spooky imprint is the latest in a series of chilling X-Files encounters at the 100-year-old Hunton Road property. Freda has been so rattled by things that go bump in the night, she’s called in a spiritualist.
During her 19 years at the house, the 52-year-old and her family have encountered ghosts, heard the cries of babies and even been prodded in their sleep. “At one time,” said Freda, “a mist, like a cloud, appeared above my head while I was hoovering. So much has gone on here. A lot of people have been frightened.”
The image of Christ is the strangest of the strange encounters. “We’d just had the floor laid down and I was taking a picture for my solicitor,” said Freda. “The floor was totally clear. “When I looked at the image, it sent a shiver down my spine. I could make out eyes, a nose, mouth, long hair and beard. A lot of people have said it looks like Jesus.”
But the property certainly has form when it comes to paranormal activity. “At one time, my son was very poorly. As he lay in bed, massive beams of light bounced off the walls. He said he also felt something touching him,” Freda added. She has discovered a baby died on the property during the war years. “The spiritualist said there was an awful lot of activity going on in the house. But I’m not scared any more, I’m going nowhere.”
Freda’s children, now aged between 14 and 30, have all endured close encounters of the ghostly kind. They, too, have been left shaken by the cement portrait.
“No one can explain it,” said Freda. “And no one can tell us what it means.”
Perhaps someone should use a spirit level on the floor before contacting the Vatican.
