CHESHIRE'S real life 'Addams family' are launching a paranormal investigation into their Winsford home which they claim is haunted.

Jon Paul (JP) Kenny and his partner Kymmi Jeffrey have heard a little girl crying and smelled rotten egg in their home since they moved to their new house in September 2022.

The couple are putting up cameras to capture the spooky ongoings and say their daughters - Snow, 10, and Pebble, six - are just as intrigued.

The family, who travel in a hearse called Morticia, hope to set up a museum for their artefacts - two dolls, Mimi and Esther, pieces of jewellery and a dybbuk box.

Jon, a 33-year-old teacher, said: “We thought we had a gas leak because it was smelling like rotten egg.

“We called an engineer out and he couldn’t find a leak. Suddenly the smell just vanished.

“Sulfur smells can be associated with demons.”

Thirty-eight-year-old Kymmi, a therapist, said: “The other night I woke up at 3am and heard a girl crying.

“I checked on Snow and Pebble but they were fast asleep.

“We’re going to buy cameras to try and capture anything.”

The couple started their ghost-hunting business 'The Occult Hauntings' in August 2022 after going on a tour for Kymmi’s birthday.

"Kymmi was very sceptical about it all when she first met me," Jon added.

"I bought her a ticket to a haunted house for her birthday and we picked up a pink spirit ghost on camera."

The family visit sites together and claim their daughter, Snow, can see ghosts and demons.

"She saw these really long fingers on a ghost hunt," Jon said. "She keeps picking up stuff in the house.

"The girls loved being involved with experiments on our different artefacts."

Kymmi added: "Pebble finds it hilarious. She put out all her Barbies to see if they would move.

"They’d moved when she woke up and she was adamant it wasn’t her."

The family are hoping to add to their artefacts in the hope of someday opening up a museum.

"We have a dybbuk box which is bound in rope and sealed in wax," Kymmi said.

"An evil entity is trapped in there."

The family are contacted by their community to investigate hauntings – and take Pebble and Snow along with them.

"We're known as the haunted family,” Kymmi said. "We get named the Addams family or the Warrens.

"We’ve had builders stop and stare out our hearse on the driveway and take pictures of it.

"It was great to fit the Christmas tree in. We’re hoping to find more evidence from our investigations."
