Michigan Parents Say Ghost on Nanny Cam Scratched Baby
Heather Brough, 30, and Joshua Higgins, 25, a couple in Highland, Michigan, told WXYZ they are worried their house is haunted after a nanny cam in their baby daughter’s room showed a strange figure in front of her crib. “It was chilling,” Brough recalled. “It was literally a chill down your spine, like that ‘what if’ factor – Is this what I just saw?” She said she “ran upstairs and grabbed” her child as soon as she saw the figure.
The couple decided to check the footage after they found inexplicable scratches on Lily’s face. According to Brough, the baby had just awakened from a nap when she spotted the deep “purple scratches” on her cheek, an indication the ghost may have harmed her. “Seeing Lily’s face with the scratches was so bizarre and frightening,” she insisted. “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. It scares us that it could do something else.”
But this wasn’t the first strange thing that happened in their home. Brough claimed she has heard an “angry male voice” screaming and laughing, and footsteps up and down the stairs as she took a shower. “It scares us that it could do something else,” she added. “I mean, there was a morning I woke up and I felt like someone’s hands were around my neck.”
Brough and Higgins live in a guest house owned by Higgins’ mother, Kris Higgins, who lives in the main house nearby. Mrs. Higgins said a paranormal investigator has determined there is “activity” in the home, but she has no idea what caused the incidents. “I was told when we bought the houses 11 years ago the lady who owned the property died in the main house. It’s an old farmhouse and according to her niece … she fell down the stairs, broke her hips and laid there for a very long time before she passed away,” Mrs. Higgins revealed. “She said that the guesthouse was built for the lady’s brother who was schizophrenic.”
Jim Higgins (Kris’ husband), however, offered an explanation for the haunting. “The gentleman that lived here originally committed suicide, apparently, by jumping out this window, which is one story down,” he told WXYZ
Although it is unclear who or what is haunting the small residence, the couple said one thing is certain, they’re hoping to save up enough money to move. “This has made us want to leave as soon as possible,” Brough insisted. “As soon as possible, we’re out of here. This is a spirit. I don’t know what its intentions are, but at this point, it’s becoming physically harmful.”
