Beyond Extraordinary Ep. 16: The Demon of Brownsville Road

The house on 3406 Brownsville Road had captivated Bob Cranmer long before he became its owner.  In 1988, Bob and his family purchased his dream home in Brentwood, PA, not knowing that their life would soon change forever.  In his forthcoming book, The Demon of Brownsville Road: A Pittsburgh Family’s Battle with Evil in Their Home, Cranmer shares the details of his family’s harrowing tale.

The Demon of Brownsville Road

What happened in that home is a terrifying story of demonic infestation and torment beyond what most of us can fathom.  It was a living nightmare that, in my opinion, makes other more famous incidents like the Amittyville Horror appear almost benign in comparison.

While we currently live in a society that seems obsessed with the paranormal, it may sometimes seem difficult to know what to believe.  Bob Cranmer’s tale is unique in that he has no need to gain public attention or 15 minutes of fame.  Bob is a prominent business man and former high profile Pittsburgh politician who has had his share of the spotlight.  It is uncommon for folks with such public visibility to open themselves to the kind of scrutiny this haunting tale surely has and will do, yet Bob has felt compelled to openly disclose the details of that difficult time, and it is this story that Bob has graciously agreed to share with us.

  1. Ok, maybe it was just me. I tried to listen to it again here at the office to make sure, but our network won’t let me. I doubled back on it twice in my car, but I heard Mr. Cranmer’s voice distortions based on the settings you mentioned, but at about 42ish minutes in there’s what sounds like a growl. It’s different from the distortions in Mr. Cranmer’s voice and I’m not trying to be a sensationalist here. It threw me off cause it sounded like someone was messing with a sound effect. That could’ve been it, but given the topic…hmmm. Happens right when you ask him about the history of the house and he goes into the Great Depression owners renting out his son’s room to a Doctor who did illegal abortions. Otherwise intriguing episode. The spirit made me feel compelled to do something and all I could do was pray for these people, his children, the house and the land in the name of Jesus Christ. I am truly saddened that nobody at the Baptist church was equipped to assist them.

    i’d like to know how you the host, are able to associate Jesus of the bible, with the rosary ?

      I do not. I was attempting to clarify the guest’s perspective. I apologize if that was not clear. I am not a Catholic and I put no faith whatsoever in the rosary, relics, idols etc.

    • John

      The Rosary is a meditation on the Gospels, mostly on various events in the life of Jesus Christ. While praying the Rosary we meditate on the birth of Christ, his Baptism, his Passion, his Resurrection, etc.
