Mystery Story In 1983


28 years ago, a mysterious event occurred in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. A young man, either with what force, capable of creating water droplets and defy gravity in the presence of nine witnesses. Those who witnessed the event believe that they're dealing with the forces of evil that comes from the devil himself.


Mystery is often referred to as the mystery Rain or Rain Boy Starter and regarded as one of the most puzzling mysteries and never preached by many local media and eventually aired by the television show Unsolved Mysteries on February 10, 1993.


This story revolves around a young man named Donald (Donnie or Don) Decker, a young man from Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, aged 21 years. In 1983, he was serving sentences of between four months to one year in prison because it proved to contain stolen goods.

Mysterious events that began when his grandfather, James Kishaugh, died.

Because violations not including grave breaches of Decker, on February 24, 1983, the police are allowed out of prison for some time to mourn the deceased grandfather.

So Decker home and take care of his grandfather's funeral. After the entire funeral process is complete, Decker went to visit a friend's house and asked permission to stay because he does not have a place to stay. Bob and Jeannie Decker Kieffer willing to accommodate out of jail until their permits expire.

Not long after Decker lived in the house, the inexplicable events begin to happen.

One day, the family Keiffer and Decker were in the living room while watching television.

Suddenly felt a chill three extraordinary. It looks like the temperature in the room began to drop drastically. Not long later, the water droplets begin to fall from the ceiling and walls of the house.

Bob Keiffer then phoned the owner of the house, Mr.Ron H. Van Why, to report the incident. At that time, Bob thinks that if there are problems with the house plumbing.

Getting to the report, the owner rushed home and checked the water droplets. After seeing some time, he concluded that the water droplets did not come from a broken pipe. He can not find the cause.

"I think the problem comes from the plumbing. But there is no pipeline in place of the leak. After watching him for a while, I found that the water was not just coming from the ceiling. But it can also come from the walls and floors. There is no direction clear where it came from the water. It can come from anywhere. "

So Mr.Van Why call the police because he thought there was something else going on in the house. He also called his wife, Romayne, to come into the house.

Not long after, two police officers named Richard Wolbert and John Baujan arrived.

Wolbert said:

"At that time, he (Mr.Van Why) told me 'I want you to walk into the house.' Then I told him 'I will not get into unless you tell me what happened.' He said 'believe me, walking alone into the.' So I started walking and he was behind me. When I walk two steps into the door of the house, I was hit by a drizzle of water. "

Wolbert said that the oddity that occurred not only rain that occurred in the house, but the drizzle of water was also seen against the laws of physics!

"We were standing near the front door and then watched it drizzle water moves horizontally in the air. He passed us and went into another room."

Officer John Baujan also witnessed the absurdity of it.

"Suddenly I felt frightened and began to shiver. That's what I feel. It is a situation where there is something that never even dreamed could happen. No one can explain what is going on."

Then, the police are called the head of the police and explained what had happened. In the meantime they asked couples Kieffer, Decker, Mr.. Van Why and wife, to go to the cafe next door to eat and let them inspect the house more freely. Kieffer and Decker couples follow this advice. However Mr.Van Rev and his wife chose to stay.

Then, something strange happened again!

At that time, the water drizzle was still falling in the house. However, when a Keiffer and Decker left the house, the drizzle had stopped!

Why Mr.Van immediately conclude that maybe Keiffer or Decker is the cause of the drizzle.

But which one?

And how could I?

For the record, these events occurred in a small town in Pennsylvania where the majority of the population still adhere to religious values. Of course the belief in evil spirits is nothing strange in this place. Such belief also held by the owner, Pam Scrofano.

Pam is also aware of events that occurred at the residence of Keiffer has the same conclusion with Mr.Van Rev. In fact he believes that Decker is the person responsible for the mysterious rain. Pam itself is an old friend of the Decker family. But that night, he felt something bad was happening to Donald Decker.

He thought, maybe this is an act of Satan. Perhaps Decker is being possessed.

Not to mention he had time to think about it more deeply, the couple Keiffer and Decker entered the cafes on the advice of the police.

When Decker sat in the seat cafe, rain began to fall in the cafe!

Pam Decker at first to suspect immediately ran toward the cash register. He reached for a cross that is stored in there and immediately put it into the neck cross Decker. Immediately, Decker turned into a blackish neck like a charred, leaving a clearly visible.

When interviewed by television stations, Pam explains:

"If you saw that night Donny, you could see if he looks like a man possessed. He will look at you, but like do not know where you are. I thought, he must have been possessed. We sat there for a while and a few seconds later, the water appear everywhere. I've never seen anything like this happen. There can be no prankster who could create such a joke. It's really real! Donnylah which has caused the rain. But he did so unknowingly. "

Everyone in the room was very surprised by what has happened. Then Pam took Keiffer and Decker out of the cafes and returned home Keiffer.

When they arrived, Romayne then confront Decker and told him that it was he who had caused all of this happen.

Suddenly, there are pots on the stove began to sway and reads aloud. And Don Decker finds himself flying through the air!

Not long after, he was thrown into a corner.

When Decker recalled that experience, he mentions that at that time, there seems to be a major force has taken over his body. Don has a great body and not easy to be thrown away. However, when thrown, he felt weak and helpless. At that time he began to realize that something evil is prevailing on him.
"That convinced me that I was responsible because the rain was like to follow me. The rain did not fall when I was not in the house. Keiffer live there and not there something strange happened. At that time I began to realize that the cause is myself."
A few hours later, officers returned Wolbert Bauman and came up with the police chief. When the chief of police entered the house, the mysterious rain came and wet it again. But, perhaps because of confusion, he asked for the investigation was stopped and told me the case is only a matter of faulty plumbing. He also asked his subordinates to not make any report about this event.

The police officers left the residence Keiffer.

Although the police chief has asked for an investigation is discontinued, but curiosity is strong enough upon the police officers are making their return to the house to meet the next day Decker. This time with another officer named John Rundle and Bill Davies.

Davies also has a strong religious life such as Pam. Then he gave a cross to Decker.

Decker took it, but promptly returned it because it feels like a burning cross his palm. Then, again, in the presence of witnesses, Decker back in the air!

John Rundle who had heard of his previous events amazed by what he saw:

"Suddenly, he lifted off the floor and drifted across the room with tremendous force as if a bus has hit it big. There are three claw marks on his neck that causes blood to flow out. I do not have an answer regarding this incident. And my mind right simply can not understand it, even until now. "

Bill Davies, too:

"I've been a cop for 40 years and have never witnessed such an event. Usually, when we investigate something, we'll get the explanation for them. For this case, no explanation."

On the third night after the first rains fell in the room, Rev. Mr.Van finally decided to call a priest to perform an exorcism ritual. Decker agreed to live it.

When the preacher started praying, Decker's body started shaking for a few moments. Then, he began to look weak and more relaxed.

And the atmosphere in the room was changed. Drizzle a drop of water disappeared.

Everyone was relieved and confident that their nightmare was over. For families Keiffer, probably yes. But not for Don Decker.

After the permit Decker ended, he went back to prison. Decker began to rethink the events that have experienced a few days later and he began to think, whether he can re-create rain in this prison?

At that time, did not happen. But a few days later, what she thought was turning into reality. The rain began to fall in the prison, right in the room where Decker was arrested! Water can also be seen seeping out of the floor.

Decker told the warden named Dave Keenhold the confusion that is causing the rain that has occurred in the prison. The warden did not believe it and challenged him to re-create the rain. Decker re-do it and the rain back down.

The warden who fear the prison chaplain was then summoned William Blackburn because he believed that Decker is experiencing a trance.

Pastor Decker Blackburn came and asked him whether he had been using all this. Decker rejected the accusations.

A few seconds later, Decker's behavior changed dramatically and began to smell a strange odor in the room.

Blackburn recall the tense moments:

"The doctors and nurses said that if we enter a room where someone dying of cancer, we could smell unusual. Same with this, I smell a far more powerful, the devil's work."

Not to mention the smell is gone, Decker raised her hand and began to rain again.

"It was the rain that comes from the devil." Blackburn said.

"There was fog. At that time I was in the presence of Satan. I began to open the Bible and read it for him. I was overwhelmed by fear. If the thought of it, maybe then I pray more for myself than for Decker."

Blackburn did not have to wait long because the rain had stopped.

Decker also appears to have turned into a more calm. He thanked Blackburn for having prayed for him.

After the incident, Don Decker never again experienced a similar incident.

This incident has lasted long enough, the year 1983 so we will only find few sources about this event. However, the residents of Stroudsburg was able to confirm these events and characters who witnessed it was mostly still alive today.

Regarding Decker, those who know these events have no doubt that what was happening at that time was the work of Satan.

"He was possessed." Blackburn said.

"There is no doubt in my mind. There can be no human being can do as he did in that room."

For Decker himself, who experienced the events considered to be a strange episode in his life.

"The incident was never repeated." He said.

"Basically, I hoped the incident would not happen again. And I, you know, just live life day by day."

Later, Decker revealed that at age 7 years, she had been sexually harassed by his grandfather. He believes that the spirit of his grandfather might be responsible for the mysterious rain.

"I think all this is done. At the time I was a kid, he hit me. When he died, he was still looking for an opportunity to re-hit me."
Problem is, nobody knows for sure. But at least, Decker relieved that this incident has ended.

Peter Jordan, a paranormal researcher who helped investigate the case of Decker give its opinion:

"Until now, the case of Donald Decker is the case most interesting and most important thing I have ever dealt with. This does not mean that I believe these events provide positive proof of demonic possession. However, in this case, and from my personal experience, this event is most approaching that hypothesis. "

Really all of these events caused by evil spirits?

Or Don Decker has a mutant power as Storm in X Men movie?

If not, what gives?

There are at least nine witnesses who witnessed the incident, including police officers James Bauman who is now a local police chief Stroudsburg.

But this story has not ended there. 10 years later, the team went to Stroudsburg Unsolved Mysteries to do impressions of Don Decker. After completing all the necessary interviews, nine crew go back to the motel to sleep and rest. The next morning, when they came out of their rooms, they found large amounts of water flooded the floor of the room where they are. Surprisingly, other non-habitable floor crew did not experience this problem.

None of that could explain the mysterious origin of the water.
