Rehabbing your home usually unearths some unpleasant surprises like crooked walls or bad wiring. But St. James homeowner Jeanette Meyran dealt with something much worse: demons.

Meyran, widow of Bronx firefighter Curtis Meyran who died in the Black Sunday blaze of 2005 that killed two men, chronicles her experience on SyFy’s Paranormal Witness, which aired last Wednesday.

Meyran told the New York Post she moved to the St. James home to get out of the relentless eye of the media. In 2006, she took her two daughters out to Long Island for a “fresh start”.

In the Post article, Meyran said during renovations a large pentagram was found on the basement floor along with bones and teeth. A diary found in the home describes sexual abuse by a young girl named Christina, who belonged to a cult and performed animal sacrifices, according to Meyran.

Her daughter Angela said a devil like figure stepped out of her bedroom mirror.

“This figure, 8 feet tall with horns and a tail, bent down and stepped out…I saw its claws. (It was) walking towards me. He smelled like rotting, dead flesh.”

The episode airs again on Wednesday at 7 p.m.

In my 45+ years I still don't know what rotting, dead flesh smells like but her young daughter does. What a bunch of BS. In it for the money...

I wonder what kind of drugs Angela is into.

Now is the time to get this family into a SOLID Christian Church

Where in St. James is this supposed house? Is this Amityville all over again?

wow... everyone is so quick to judge! Guess it's easy to know everything sitting behind the anonymity of the internet and your computer monitor. And anyone who has ever bought fresh meat and then left it in your fridge a little too long would know what rotting flesh smells like. Just sayin'... My only question is... if there is a demon in your house... why haven't they moved out?

You people are terrible not giving this family a little more respect> Sure, the mother is going to put her daughters through a "fake" horrifying experience story for money???? There is more to this world than just whats infront of your face. Hope it doesn't find you in the same way.Narrow minded people learn the hard way.

I'm glad I don't live on Sunny Rd in Saint James. There will now be a parade of unwanted foot and vehicular traffic up and down that street as there is in Amityville. Most of which will be joy riding teens out for a good scare. Makes for a safety hazard for any children living in the area. Talk to the people who live on Harbor Rd who have been dealing with the Mary's Grave phenomenon for as long as we can remember. I don't know what's worse, this woman going public with her story or the media actually reporting the street address. This whole thing is going to lead to nothing but grief for her neighbors. That house will now never sell nor will the houses anywhere near it. Because nobody in their right mind is going to want to buy a house in an area where you won't get any peace.
