Do you believe in werewolves? There actually was someone thought to be a werewolf in real life.
The story of Bill Ramsey, often referred to as the “Werewolf possession,” commenced when he was just 9 years old in 1952.
Bill Ramsey’s Childhood Years
On a Saturday, while playing in the garden, Ramsey suddenly experienced a fit of rage, attempting to tear down the garden fences. During this episode, his face took on a wild expression, and foam formed in his mouth.
It seemed as if an external force had taken over his motor functions, completely controlling the young boy. In a display of abnormal strength, Ramsey managed to uproot a fence post, something even his father would struggle with, and waved it wildly around.
His actions forced everyone to retreat. In a surprising move, Bill lunged at the garden’s wire mesh and sunk his teeth into it, not merely nibbling but gnawing like an animal. His parents watched in horror until the episode passed and Bill calmed down. For the next 15 years, there were no notable incidents.
Bill Ramsey’s Adult Years (Werewolf)
As an adult in his mid-20s, married with children, Ramsey began experiencing regular nightmares filled with fear and unease. In the early 1980s, as an adult, he started having similar fits of rage.
Several times, these episodes led to attempts of assaulting people, resulting in hospitalizations. Ramsey claimed these outbursts resembled werewolf transformations. In 1983, while socializing with friends, he felt the onset of the same sensations he had in his parents’ backyard decades ago. Excusing himself to the restroom, he saw in the mirror not his reflection, but that of a werewolf.
The incident foreshadowed what was to come. During a taxi ride home, reportedly, Ramsey’s hands transformed into claws, and he bit the leg of a fellow passenger. The driver, maintaining composure, stopped the car and tried to eject Bill.
Approaching December of the same year, Ramsey began experiencing chest pains. Concerned about a potential heart attack, he rushed to a local hospital. While his blood pressure was being taken, he suddenly bit the nurse’s arm.
Arrest of Bill Ramsey (Werewolf)
Emergency crews intervened immediately. Witnesses described Ramsey as if a malevolent entity possessed him, dropping his shoulders and morphing his fingers into claws, snarling like a wild animal. It took several officers to subdue him. One managed to handcuff Ramsey, but that wasn’t enough.
A sedative finally calmed him. While under observation, Ramsey’s rage resurfaced. Hearing the commotion, four police officers surrounded him. It took four people to intervene. One officer sustained injuries requiring hospitalization.
The local police department called a surgeon, and Ramsey was offered a transfer to a mental health facility for special tests and possible treatments. Although he considered the offer, Ramsey ultimately declined. After two months in custody without further incidents, he was released.
Three years of calm ensued until Ramsey found himself back at the same police station, this time reporting a young man. As he parked his car, he felt the uncontrollable urges resurface.
A larger and more robust officer approached and grabbed Ramsey’s arm. Ramsey reacted by throwing the officer to the ground. A dozen police officers, including two detectives, intervened, requiring two injections to subdue Ramsey.
Ed and Lorraine Warren Meeting with Bill Ramsey
Ed and Lorraine Warren, renowned paranormal investigators, flew to England upon hearing about Ramsey’s case. Already in London, they believed Ramsey was possessed by an evil entity.
They met with Ramsey and suggested the best solution was to visit their church in Connecticut for examination. The Warrens, convinced of Ramsey’s demonic affliction, arranged for his U.S. visit and an exorcism, funded by “The People” tabloid newspaper.
At the church, Bishop McKenna suggested a rite for Ramsey. Conducted in Latin, everything seemed normal for half an hour until Ramsey’s expression changed, and he clenched his hands like claws.
McKenna commanded the evil within Ramsey to leave. The exorcism was recorded on video, and it was believed that the demonic influence on Ramsey had been lifted.
How Was the Bill Ramsey Incident Reflected in the Media?
Ramsey’s story gained global media attention. In 1992, he appeared publicly for the last time on Fox TV’s “Sightings,” sharing that his experiences intensified before his trip to America. Since then, there have been no new reports or incidents involving Ramsey.
While the Warrens have inspired numerous film adaptations of their investigations, Ramsey’s story has not been directly adapted into a Hollywood movie.
However, the horror film industry often draws inspiration from real-life events, so it’s conceivable that Ramsey’s experiences may have influenced werewolf-themed narratives.
