Fans of "Haunted Collector" may never be completely comfortable in their showers again. The team was visiting a woman's house where Iroquois Indians were killed during the Revolutionary War, and she reported experience paranormal phenomenon in her home, and in the show. She said she's seen apparitions, and even been scratched by ghosts.
When the team did their investigation, they had an encounter, too. "“We see a very small form," team leader John Zaffis recalled later. "I don’t know exactly what it was -- a child, a little person -- but there was something there."
After some more digging into the local history, the team discovered that when the Iroquois were driven out of the area, they left behind a 4-year-old white child. The boy, who was starving at the time, was taken in by a soldier and given the name Thomas, but he wound up passing away from small pox a few years later.
John felt confident that the image in the show was most definitely Thomas. In hopes of acknowledging his spirit, the team gave Thomas a gravestone. And it must have worked. The owner of the home has reported no further paranormal activity.
