For 13 years, an unusual sound haunted Jerry and Sylvia Lynn. At the same time every night, the strange noise emanated from the walls of their home in the township of Ross, Pennsylvania. And without fail, the bizarre vibrations escalated, resulting in a seemingly inexplicable din. Then, however, a repairman uncovered exactly what was causing the racket – and the source of the disturbance will come as a big surprise.
But while the Lynns’ home had something alarming lurking within the walls, that’s definitely not the case for most houses – even if they make noises that can sound quite ghostly. And, in fact, the sinister sounds you hear in your own abode almost certainly have rather banal explanations. The distinct screech of a creaking door is often used in horror movies, for instance – to build tension among the audience. However, in the average home, such a squeak is likely to be nothing more than an indication that a hinge is in need of some oil.
