Shawn Warner Leigh Howard Book PDF

Leigh Howard is a renowned paranormal investigator and author who has dedicated her life to exploring and documenting the most haunted places in the world. She has written several best-selling books and hosted a popular TV show, “Ghost Hunter”, where she uses her psychic abilities and scientific equipment to communicate with the spirits of the dead.

One of her most famous and controversial cases is the Simmons-Pierce Manor, a historic mansion in New England that was once owned by a wealthy and influential family. The manor has a dark and tragic history, involving murder, suicide, madness, and betrayal. Many people believe that the manor is cursed and haunted by the restless souls of its former inhabitants, who died in mysterious and violent ways.

Leigh Howard was invited by the current owner of the manor, Richard Pierce, to conduct a thorough investigation of the property and its paranormal activity. She spent three nights in the manor, accompanied by her team of experts and cameramen. What she discovered there was beyond her wildest expectations and challenged her beliefs about life and death.

The History of the Manor

The Simmons-Pierce Manor was built in 1856 by Jonathan Simmons, a successful businessman and politician who wanted to create a lavish home for his wife, Elizabeth, and their four children. The manor was designed by a famous architect and featured elegant rooms, exquisite furniture, and a large library. The family lived happily in the manor for several years, until tragedy struck.

In 1861, Jonathan Simmons was assassinated by an unknown gunman while he was giving a speech at a political rally. His death shocked and devastated his family and friends. Elizabeth Simmons became depressed and withdrawn, neglecting her children and spending most of her time in her bedroom. She died of a heart attack in 1863, leaving behind four orphaned children.

The eldest son, William Simmons, inherited the manor and took over his father’s business. He married a young woman named Clara, who bore him two sons. William was a ruthless and ambitious man who expanded his fortune and influence by any means necessary. He was also abusive and unfaithful to his wife, who suffered in silence.

In 1879, Clara Simmons discovered that her husband was having an affair with a maid named Rose. She confronted him in his study and shot him dead with his own pistol. She then turned the gun on herself and committed suicide. Their bodies were found by their youngest son, Edward, who was only seven years old.

Edward Simmons inherited the manor and grew up to be a troubled and lonely man. He never married or had children. He became obsessed with the occult and tried to contact his parents’ spirits through séances and rituals. He also collected various artifacts and relics related to death and magic.

In 1899, Edward Simmons invited a group of friends to spend the night at the manor for a special event. He claimed that he had found a way to open a portal to the other side and communicate with the dead. However, something went horribly wrong during the experiment. The next morning, all of his guests were found dead in their rooms, with no signs of injury or struggle. Edward Simmons was missing and never seen again.

The manor was abandoned for decades, until it was bought by Richard Pierce in 1920. Richard Pierce was a distant relative of Elizabeth Simmons and a successful lawyer. He renovated the manor and restored its former glory. He also hired a staff of servants to maintain the property.

Richard Pierce lived in the manor with his wife, Helen, and their daughter, Alice. They seemed to be a happy and normal family, until they started experiencing strange phenomena in the manor. They heard voices, footsteps, knocks, screams, laughter, music, and other noises that had no source. They saw shadows, apparitions, objects moving by themselves, doors opening and closing, lights flickering on and off, and other manifestations that defied explanation.

They also felt cold spots, hot spots, electric shocks, touches, pushes, scratches, bites, burns, bruises, cuts, and other physical sensations that caused them pain or discomfort. They smelled odors such as perfume, smoke, blood, rotting flesh, and other scents that had no origin.

They also had nightmares, visions, hallucinations, memory loss, confusion, paranoia, anxiety, depression, anger, fear, and other psychological effects that affected their mental health.

They tried to ignore or rationalize these phenomena, but they became more frequent and intense over time. They consulted priests, psychics, doctors, and experts, but none of them could help them or explain what was happening.

They eventually realized that they were not alone in the manor. They were sharing it with dozens of ghosts who were trapped there by a powerful curse. They were the spirits of the Simmons family and their victims, who were doomed to relive their deaths and suffer their torments for eternity.

They also learned that some of these ghosts were not only harmless, but hostile and dangerous. They wanted to harm or kill them, or drive them away from the manor. They had a particular hatred for Richard Pierce, who they saw as an intruder and a usurper.

Richard Pierce and his family tried to escape from the manor, but they found out that they could not leave. Every time they attempted to do so, they encountered accidents, obstacles, or threats that prevented them from doing so. They were trapped in the manor, just like the ghosts.

They also discovered that the manor had a mind of its own. It was alive and sentient, and it controlled everything that happened inside it. It could manipulate the environment, the objects, the sounds, the lights, and even the time and space to create illusions, traps, and challenges for its occupants.

It also had a personality and a will. It was curious and playful, but also cruel and sadistic. It enjoyed watching and testing its occupants, and sometimes helped or hindered them according to its whims.

It also had a purpose and a goal. It wanted to learn more about life and death, and to find a way to break the curse that bound it and the ghosts to the manor.

The Investigation

Leigh Howard was fascinated by the story of the Simmons-Pierce Manor and eager to investigate it. She had heard rumors and legends about it, but she wanted to see it for herself and find out the truth.

She contacted Richard Pierce and asked for his permission to visit the manor and conduct a paranormal investigation. He agreed to let her do so, hoping that she could help him and his family or at least document their plight.

Leigh Howard arrived at the manor with her team of experts and cameramen. They brought with them various equipment such as cameras, recorders, sensors, meters, detectors, scanners, monitors, computers, radios, phones, flashlights, batteries, generators, and other devices to capture and analyze the paranormal activity.

They also brought some personal items such as clothes, toiletries, food, water, medicine, weapons, tools, books, games, and other items to make their stay more comfortable and safe.

They planned to spend three nights in the manor, from Friday to Sunday, and explore every room and corner of it.

They set up their base camp in the living room, where they installed their equipment and supplies. They divided themselves into teams of two or three people, and assigned each team a different area of the manor to investigate.

They also established some rules and protocols to ensure their safety and communication.

They agreed to stay in contact with each other at all times, using radios or phones. They agreed to report any findings or incidents to Leigh Howard, who was in charge of the investigation. They agreed to stick together and not wander off alone or without permission. They agreed to respect the manor and its inhabitants, and not provoke or antagonize them. They agreed to follow Leigh Howard’s instructions and decisions, and not question or disobey her.

They also agreed to leave the manor by Sunday night, no matter what happened or what they found.
