Author To Document Poltergeist Fires Haunting Grandmother

Submitted by on February 21, 2011 – 3:18 AMOne Comment | 2,236 views

Last month, I wrote a post about a Malaysian grandmother who was plagued by a poltergeist in her home in Kota Baru.

There’s been an update to this story provided by The Star Online news website. Paul Cropper has flown from his native Australia in order to gather evidence of the poltergeist and meet with the grandmother whose home has been set on fire countless times. Cropper expects to write a book on the poltergeist phenomenon.

As far as I know, the fires are still plaguing the grandmother. I’m not sure if Mr. Cropper did a little investigation of his own or not. Hopefully there is a lot of documentation on this since her home has been visited by several paranormal investigators since last December.

KOTA BARU: An Australian writer intrigued by the paranormal happenings at the home of Zainab Sulaiman, which included unexplained mysterious fires, has flown down to investigate and chronicle it for an upcoming book on the matter.

Paul Cropper, 47, from Sydney arrived here on Friday to meet 75-year-old Zainab in Kampung Penambang Bunga after reading about her ordeal in The Star online.

“Zainab’s experience is similar to the work of a poltergeist or djinn as the locals call it.

“I have personally experienced such entities in Australia where things mysteriously fly. I want to compare Zainab’s experience with the paranormal activities in Australia,” Cropper said.

“I expect the book would be completed in six months and I will prominently highlight Zainab’s experience in my book,” said the manager with a major Australian Telecommunications company who has been writing on strange phenomena for over 20 years.

He has co-authored two books on Australian wildlife myths and legends.

More than five paranormal experts had exorcised Zainab’s house, from Chinese sifus to bomohs and she has not experienced any strange phenomena since then.

A delighted Zainab said she was happy with Paul’s visit.

“At least now people believe my story because before this many had thought that I was an insane old woman trying to get attention from the public or trying to cash in on my predicament,” she said to Paul.

She gave him a half-burnt floor mat to bring back to Australia as a momento.

Zainab, who lives in the wooden house with her daughter-in-law and two grandchildren, was plagued with mysterious fires since early December last year.

Based in Brooklyn, NY, I write about all things creepy and strange. My book based on the real haunting of Doris Bither (The Entity 1982 movie) will be released soon. Got a question? Drop me a line.
