In the last several centuries, there has been cases where people are suddenly engulfed in flames with no apparent external source that caused the fire. This phenomena is called spontaneous human combustion. One of the most recent occurrences happend in 2010 involving a 76 year old man named Michael Faherty. He was discovered in his home in Ireland with his remains appearing burnt. During the investigation the cause of the fire could not be determine resulting in the corone listing the death by spontaneous combustion.
In near death experiences, people who were clinical dead are revived share stories of experiencing something after death. Often such accounts describe leaving their body, travelling through a tunnel of light and being in a place surrounded with love or desceased family members. Howerver, there is a darker side of NDEs that is rarely heard. After death, people mention sinking down a hole entering a black void where there is nothingness. Others express what they described as Hades, Hells, or Jahannam engulfed in smoke and fire. In such accounts, people say they even encounter non-human entities.
In researching paranormal event, one practise I always found is looking into any myths including any modern urban legends about the incident. Over the years, I had read and heard a mountain of such stories from across the globe. Some of these legends are inspired by actual occurrence and at times by real people. The urban myth, Charlie no face, shocked me in learning the tale had been based off a person named Raymond Robinson. The following YouTube video, produced by Crypticc, goes into more detail about legend of “The Green Man”.

In the past, I had mentioned how fascinating Japanese folklore is. Ghosts, monsters and demons are known as yokai in the country’s legends which in some cases, humans, animal and even household items could become. Over the years, I have read stories about the kappa, oni, inugami, and many others. Only recently, I have come across a tale about a monstrous creature called the gashadokuro.
