Could A Ouija Board Contact Black Eyed Children?

Ghost hunters will try to contact the terrifying ‘Black Eyed Child’ for a new TV show.

The paranormal experts will use a ouija board to contact the spirit as part of a £200,000 TV documentary to be aired next year.

The Black Eyed Child of Cannock Chase became an internet sensation back in 2014 following numerous alleged sighting of the girl with the coal-pit eyes.

A number of snaps of the spooky spectre were also captured on film, the Birmingham Mail reported .

Now Manchester based paranormal investigators Dale Makin and Justin Cowell, of TV series Paranormal Truth, will set foot in the woods of Cannock Chase and say they will try and ‘make contact’.

Filming for Ouija Dicing With Death? was scheduled to start this month with the documentary to be released in April next year.

Dale said: “The Black Eyed children of Cannock Chase are famous around the world and there have been numerous sightings. We are planning to go to Cannock Chase and use a ouija board to see if we can make contact with these spirits.

“Some people say you are asking for trouble, opening a spiritual door and inviting all kinds of negative spirits into your life. On the other hand, some people will tell you it’s all a load of nonsense and question how a ouija board can become a form of spirit communication and allow you to talk to the dead and evil spirits.

“We will interview the public, subject matter experts and well-respected people in the paranormal community and then put the use of ouija boards to the test, in varying environmental conditions and locations.

“Myself and Justin are different from the majority of other investigators, We are very hard to convince, which is why we are taking this scientific approach with the ouija board.

“Our investigations are based on honesty. What you see is what you get.

“If nothing happens, then that’s what you’ll see. Investigations are conducted in a level-headed manner and we hope that is visible through our documentaries.”

The Black Eyed Child of Cannock Chase had not been spotted for 30 years but a plague of sightings back in 2014 – initially reported by the Sunday Mercury – sparked worldwide interest.

Some witnesses claim the child giggles and calls for help while the descriptions of the girl are identical to those chronicled in the early 1980s.

And experts have offered up a string of theories for its existence – from a mass hallucination to links to a Celtic tribe known for blood sacrifces.

One terrifying eye-witness account relayed to paranormal investigator Lee Brickley told of a family alerted by screams as they walked through Birches Valley.

The unnamed woman said: “We instantly started running towards the noise. We couldn’t find the child anywhere and so stopped to catch our breath.

“That’s when I turned round and saw a girl stood behind me, no more than ten years old, with her hands over her eyes.

“It was as if she was waiting for a birthday cake.

“I asked if she was OK and if she had been the one screaming. She put her arms down by her side and opened her eyes.

“That’s when I saw they were completely black, no iris, no white, nothing.

“I jumped back and grabbed my daughter. When I looked again, the child was gone. It was so strange.”
