    Is this all sensational reporting or media hype ?

    But I don't see a citation to this statement.

    I was not sure if the item fit the forum rules, are the guys doing the investigation
    qualified?

    Why were the flying objects (marbles, lego bricks) not captured on film ?

    In the part where the girl is (levitating) it is said that the camera is filming
    at 4 frames a second, that seems very slow.

    The part about the gas fire being ripped out of the wall seems extreme to the rest of the
    activities, in the film i am sure it is partly behind the bed, was the bed moved?

    What time was the girl levitating? I don't really want to watch all 48 minutes...

    Nm. about 30min in.
    She jumps off her bed and onto the floor. I was hoping for something more, well, interesting.
