On Monday 15th May, 1995, the Parapsychology Institute in Utrecht received a request for help from a Turkish family in the village of Druten in Holland. The phenomena this family experienced were recognized as classical poltergeist events: the flying about of stones, clods of earth, sand, and objects, some of them hitting people and smashing windows. Family members were frightened by these events which seemed to concentrate around Çetin, the 15 year old son. Apart from Çetin, the family consists of his father Rafet (48 yrs), step-mother Saime (55 yrs), and half-sister Aynur (16 yrs). Other main characters in the event were Gülseren, the older half-sister of Çetin (25 yrs) who lives nearby, Dorus, a friend of Rafet, and neighbours Wies and Simon.
