Recently, we were able to talk with with a member of the Snedeker family, about whom the movie The Haunting in Connecticut is based on.
Actually, it was she who contacted us. She wasn't too happy about some of our reporting on the validity of the story behind the movie, and in doing a little research, we realized it was obvious she wouldn't be sending Ray Garton a birthday card anytime soon, either. Garton is the author of In a Dark Place, and he now claims that the book is a work of fiction.
Please welcome Nancy Boucher.....
DC: How are you related to the family who lived in the house and are you still in touch with them?
NB: Hi Steve. Allen Snedeker is my brother and yes, I am still in contact with him.
DC: Have you been inside the house, and if so, when was the last time?
NB: I did live in the house for a few months a long time ago when my kids were still small and I was homeless. My brother and his wife took me in. When I lived there, it was scary knowing it was funeral home. That is when things first started happening that couldn't be explained.
DC: What were your impressions of Ed and Lorraine Warren?
NB: I never met the Warrens, I had moved out before all the heavy S@#T started happening and they wouldn't allow anyone from the family to go to the house when they were there and the exorcism was going on.
DC: What was your Impression of the Ray Garton, and does the family feel betrayed by him?
NB: I've never met Ray Garton and don't want to. The $hit he said about my brother and his family really pissed me off.
DC: Is everyone happy and healthy today?
NB: Everyone is happy and healthy, but I don't think they'll ever forget what happened to them. God is very close to them now.
DC: Is everyone excited by the release of the movie?
NB: My Family doesn't want to see it, it scares them. A lot of the things that go on in the movie didn't happen, so whats the point of the movie?
Thanks again, Nancy, for the interview.
Update: June 17th,
I just wanted to let everyone know we have two other more comprehensive interviews on the site regarding this story.
The First was with Ray Garton author of In A Dark Place.
And just recently we did one with the producer of "The Haunting in Connecticut" Daniel Farrands
