In 1974, the little home at Lindley St. in Bridgeport, CT. literally shut the city down. It was the home of a humble maintenance man, Jerry Goodin, his wife, Laura Goodin, and their 10 year old adopted child, Marcia Goodin. With over 2,000 people camping out there, the Bridgeport Police Department had their hands full. There were police officers stationed at the house for crowd control, a paddy wagon there for arrests for those that wouldn't behave, nightly prayer vigils, and an attempt to burn down the house to cleanse it of ghosts too. It was a true haunting. The road was closed and traffic was at a standstill for about a mile in all directions. Over 15 police officers also witnessed objects flying around in the "house come alive." The police department didn't know what to do so they called the fire department. The fire department checked the house and said it was not settling or construction or anything they can pinpoint. After also witnessing the phenomena, they called their chaplain. A neighbor called in the Warrens. And then, as the radio calls went out to dispatch all these professionals, the media came. They camped out with the people. The family had to sneak around like movie stars but without the glamor or the profit. Finally, two police officers investigated and then it was announced that it was all a hoax perpetrated by the 10 year old adopted daughter of the Goodins - Marcia. She did it all. She moved furniture when people weren't looking. How did the sofas float? How did the refrigerator float? No one is sure but still Marcia took the fall. After all, if you don't know the details, then you will be none the wiser. The hoax story was successful in getting rid of the crowd and that is what the superintendent wanted to happen - and fast. In the end, however, the case was not closed and the phenomena continued...with full police support! That's because the story here is true. A real family in a house not fit to be a haunted house, was - in fact - haunted.
