Zak Bagans has 'Demon House' Demolished
GARY, Ind. – The house once at the center of a multi-agency police investigation into demonic activity has been demolished. Zak Bagans (above), host and executive producer of Ghost Adventures on the Travel Channel, had the purported "demon house" destroyed two weeks ago. The demolition was filmed for a documentary Bagans plans to release later this year. "Something was inside that house that had the ability to do things that I have never seen before – things that others carrying the highest forms of credibility couldn't explain either," he told IndyStar via email. "There was something there that was very dark yet highly intelligent and powerful."
Bagans bought the Carolina Street house in 2014, shortly after IndyStar published an article about Latoya Ammons' claim that she and her three children had been possessed by demons. Ammons' tale spurred an Indiana Department of Child Services intervention, police investigation and a series of exorcisms that a priest claimed were the first authorized by the bishop of the Catholic Church's Diocese of Gary. IndyStar's piece chronicled Ammons' description of strange occurrences involving her and her three children – and the government's response. The article went viral, with dozens of movie producers and countless TV shows clamoring for interviews.
Bagans interviewed numerous police officials, a former DCS worker and others for his documentary. He would not say whether he interviewed Ammons or her family. The home is where Ammons and her mother, Rosa Campbell, said many of the strange things happened.
Bagans told IndyStar his reason for destroying the home will be presented in the documentary. He said his goal is to launch the documentary at a major film festival this year.
