'Ghost Adventures' star Zak Bagans buys Indiana home reportedly haunted by demons

Ghost Adventures star Zak Bagans has purchased a house in Gary, Indiana believed to be haunted and the site of numerous demonic possessions.
Bagans bought the home dubbed "a portal to hell" by police officials and witnesses who had encountered a wide range of supernatural activity firsthand for $35,000, and according to TMZ, he plans to live there and document his experience.
"If it's true this home is a portal to hell, then I want to go there and see what happens," Bagans told TMZ.
The house was recently vacated by the Ammons family who insist they were tortured by nearly 200 demons since November 2011 and underwent multiple Catholic exorcisms to rid their bodies of the evil spirits, the Indianapolis Starreported.
Latoya Ammons, 32, claims all three of her children showed signs of being possessed while they lived in the house.
In 2012, Latoya said her nine-year-old son walked backwards up a wall and ceiling in front of a handful of witnesses, including a social worker and nurse who have since backed the story. The child also reportedly growled before his eyes rolled back in his head. In addition, Latoya's 12-year-old daughter was allegedly found one night levitating unconscious above her bed.
The Ammons family was reportedly not financially stable enough to flee the home for years, but spirits finally vanquished after they moved away and a priest executed many exorcisms.
