Audio Tape Of Cromarty Relative played in school

Post by nguyenphutoan » Fri Jan 26, 2018 7:36 pm

There are tons of post Lutz house legends out there that are very interesting.

Does anyone have any more information/insight into the legend/story of a relative visiting the house when the Cromartys lived there. I believe that the story is based around a younger relative visiting Cromarty who was taking his neice/nephew? around the house showing them rooms as part of a school/class project about the house. This relative was carrying a tape recorder around and taping Jim Cromarty. Later, while playing the audio tape in class extra sounds that were either disturbing or demonic appeared on the tape and caused a lot of upset and frightened students.

I am probably butchering this legend/story but does anyone have any more information about it in their research?

Where on earth did this story come from?

It is interesting and exciting but it's probably an internet myth based on nothing.

But with the amount of evidence of demonic possession around Amityville its hardly surprising.

Lol! "Where did this story come from"? Bunch of nonsense cooked up and passed off as "truth" in here, where else?

It's embarrassing to even comment on.
FIRE THAT THING UP!

I guess the school kids retold the story, and either exaggerated, or it was retold by others without it really being a dog.

A quick google search gave the suggestion of Donna Yancosek rather than Yancosik. Using those results brings you this page

Looks like she lived in Amityville till 1982

She has Cromarty's as her friends so one would assume it's her.

So Ric didn't even get the name right for his book? What an idiot.

I'm going to contact her and throw some money her way to talk.

Good luck, but what more do you need to know?

I want to see if this story has a grain of truth in it.

Recently I've learnt there's a lot of truth in the supernatural and I wouldn't be surprised if it's true.

I honestly do not believe she has any more to tell us other than what was already discussed in the previous thread. If money was the issue with getting information why would she freely speak to Sherb for nothing?

Donna mentioned her husband being in film and media, and how he said the tape used is known for overlapping recordings giving me the impression they used an older tape rather than a brand new one. So if this is the case then it is possible there was a previous recording on that tape (perhaps a test recording?) resulting in said overlap. Whether this explains the growling sound I cannot say. Donna did mention that the tape used was lost over time otherwise she would have sent it to Sherb, as she indicated.

I didn't see any text where she addressed the tape directly. Maybe I missed something.

I find it suspicious that she didn't keep the tape. How did this story even come out? Ir was prrsented as a big thing which traumatized the kids. Was this just Ric's sensationalist reporting?

I think this story pre-dated Ric. Not sure where it first appeared.

Or it could have been teenage girls making up a scary story to get the attention of their classmates.
