Is Black-eyed Child the Ghost of Murdered Cannock Chase Girl?
Last week, stories emerged of the demon spirit being spotted for the first time in 30 years. So we traveled to the spooky Staffordshire countryside with the world’s leading exorcist Ian Lawman in the hunt for the terrifying spirit. Ghost expert Ian, who is famous for appearing on shows Most Haunted and Living With the Dead, led the team through the woods to an area he felt had the strongest paranormal presence.
He mentioned two names, Christina (or Christine) and Alicestina, but could not tell at the time if either had black eyes.
The corpse of a seven-year-old girl by the name of Christine Darby (above right) was found in Cannock Chase in 1967. Her body was dumped there by killer Raymond Leslie Morris less than a mile away from Mansty Gully, roughly where we were located. And Ian believes the sightings of the black-eyed girl may be connected to Christine’s murder. “I had a very negative feeling when we were up there and I think it is linked,” he said. The names I’ve come out with are too coincidental not to be connected. It’s also common for ghosts with black eyes to have been blindfolded or had their sight restricted shortly before their death. The feeling I got there makes me think there could be more bodies up there too.”
When Morris was convicted of murdering Christine, police believed he may have killed others and buried them in the open countryside. He died in prison earlier this year.
Ian’s senses also led him to believe a medieval village had existed right where we were standing. He predicted that some form of burial ground where witchcraft was practiced could have been there and likely to have been linked with the girl named Alicestina.
While in the forest, the psychic medium explained he had dealt with tales of black-eyed children in the past but never one like this. He said his first encounter with black-eyed spirits came fifteen years ago during his first exorcism. “I was called out to do an investigation and an exorcism through the church,” he revealed. He was a young boy at the time who had become possessed by a famous spirit known as a Polish Airman. His mannerisms started changing, he became very aggressive – even pushing his mum down the stairs in one case.”
Ian did background health checks on the boy and interviewed worried family members about his behavior. But it was decided that an exorcism was needed. “When I started to do the deliverance, I noticed that boy’s eyes were turning a dark grey color very quickly. The further I got into the exorcism the boy’s eyes went darker and he just froze with a very vacant glare. It was as if he had no soul.”
Black-Eyed Children are said to be some of the most dangerous types of ghosts. They hold the purest form of evil and experts say they can be extremely harmful to humans. It is said that in many cases, the children approach people’s houses asking entry into their home. If given permission, the spirits cause chaos in the house and settle there as a new resting ground.
Ian explained how the idea comes from tales of strange burial rituals. “Some cults put coins on people’s eyelids when they had died. They believed a gatekeeper would take the coins off your eyes so you could see your next life. But for those without coins on their eyes, the gatekeeper would refuse them entry into the afterlife. So this could be linked to the story of the black-eyed child, too.”
