WHITMAN, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — A home located in the middle of the infamous Bridgewater Triangle is claimed to be haunted—and is now the focus of the Friday the 13th episode of the Travel Channel show “Ghost Brothers.”
Whitman homeowners Mike and Lynette Feeney say they, along with their nine-year-old daughter, have been visited by the spirits of a farmer and his young daughter, who lived in the house years ago.
The Feeneys claim their daughter has a hard time breathing and feels a heaviness on her chest when the ghosts are believed to be near.
“A little girl has been trying to contact her,” Lynette Feeney said. “She’s had some difficulty sleeping at night, crying at night, and having a difficult time breathing at night.”
Mrs. Feeney says when her daughter leaves the room, she is completely fine.
The theory is that there are the spirits of a farmer and his daughter dwelling in the home they had previously lived in, according to TV detectives “Ghost Brothers” who investigated the house.
“This was farmland, the father and daughter lived here,” Mrs. Feeney said. “I guess the mother passed away, it seems like [the young ghost girl] wanted me as a mother figure I guess.”
She says she has seen figures in the middle of the night at the foot of her bed.
“I thought it was a dream, and it certainly wasn’t because it happened again and again,” Mrs. Feeney said. “In the middle of the night, they tend to tap me on the foot, and I would get startled, and I thought it was my daughter, so I called her name.”
Mike Feeney says he once heard a disembodied, unknown voice speak to him while he thought he was home alone.
“It was spooky,” Mr. Feeney said. “It was right next to my ear, telling me to go to bed.”
The Feeney's home sits in the middle of the Bridgewater Triangle—an area in southeastern Massachusetts known for a history of alleged sightings of ghouls and creatures.
