A Psychic Told Him To Dig A Hole In His Basement, And The Reason Dropped His Jaw….
It was exactly where the creepy woman had told him it would be. And now everything he thought he knew about his family was a lie.
Michael Carroll spent most of his life in the New York home, not knowing the remains of his missing father had apparently been there all along.
George Carroll, a Korean War veteran, disappeared more than 57 years before his remains were discovered under the basement of his Lake Grove home, ending the decades-long mystery.
For many years, Michael refused to believe his mother's story that his father went out for cigarettes one night while leaving his wallet back at home in 1961 and then never returned.
Michael grew up believing that his father George had abandoned him and his three siblings. He was just a baby when it happened, so he didn’t remember him, but he knew from stories that his dad was a Korean War veteran and a good man, so something didn’t sit right with him.
After George vanished from their Long Island home in 1961, his mother forbid them from discussing it. “I was always told, ‘Don’t ask,’” Michael told the New York Post. “So I stopped asking.”
Michael’s mom had remarried since then. It was unlikely a body would have gone unnoticed during all the years his stepfather, Richard Darress, had moved into the house soon after George disappeared.
Richard Darress was Dorothy’s second husband. They had met while he worked as a handyman on the family home just before George vanished. After he and Dorothy divorced, Darress became a long-distance truck driver and reportedly moved to Nuevo Laredo, Mexico.
Unable to get his father’s mysterious disappearance off his mind, Michael planned a trip to Mexico to question Darress. But the very day before Michael was due to leave, Darress suddenly passed away.
With Michael’s mother also passed on, the trail had gone cold. There was no evidence, no suspects, Dorothy didn’t even report George as missing when it happened, so there was no police report to look at either.
But just when Michael thought his hunt for the truth was over, his son received a very strange phone call that sent chills down his spine.
Michael looked into psychics, paranormal investigators, and other experts to help him uncover the truth.
As they walked down the basement stairs, the psychics seemed to be on high alert. Eventually, she stopped dead in the middle of the room and pointed to the ground. “The energy… it’s coming from right here,” she whispered.
In late October, specialized tools were used to scan the basement floor which led to the discovery of a perfectly intact skeleton that had been buried around 5ft below the ground.
“They were twisted in a knot, weird-looking,” Michael said. “It was down and twisted in the dirt… not totally exposed, either.”
Investigators were able to confirm that Michael had found his father’s remains through dental records and DNA testing. And what’s more, they also determined that George had suffered blunt force trauma to the back of the head.
Michael’s father had been murdered.
Following Michael’s determined pursuit of justice, George’s disappearance was reopened as a homicide investigation, but Suffolk County police have refused to comment on any potential suspects. Meanwhile, the family focused on George’s military background.
The Carroll family buried their Korean War hero father’s remains, paying tribute to his service to the country with full military honors. While there are still several unanswered questions surrounding his death, Michael does feel a sense of closure.
“I feel great that my dad is finally free from that crappy hole,” he said.
