The amazing story behind The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It.
In 1981, David Glatzel is 11 and hearing voices. The voices he is hearing are telling him horrible things and telling them he wants his soul. The Glatzel family slowly learns that little David is going through the stages of possession. The family priest realized that something preternatural is happening and suggests reaching out to Ed and Lorraine Warren, a married couple known for their ability to help in situations like this. During his possession, David's future brother-in-law, Arne, attempts to stand up to the demon - something he will pay for a short time later. A few months later Arne Cheyenne Johnson murdered his landlord. Arne stated that he could not remember murdering anyone and that he believed he had been possessed. This was to be his defense until the judge decided he would not allow it.
While this was a very interesting possession story there may have been an embellishing of facts to make the story more interesting. I am a huge fan of the Warrens and enjoy reading stories where their help is required. While this is an older book, listening to it made the story more interesting and easier for me to listen to while working.
