Indiana police and Department of Child Services investigated Ammons' paranormal claims.
Latoya Ammons, mother of possessed (IS)
A woman and three children claim to be possessed by demons. A 9-year-old boy walks backward up a wall in the presence of [two official eyewitnesses,] a family [Department of Child Services] case manager and [a registered] hospital nurse.
Gary police Capt. Charles Austin said it was the strangest story he had ever heard.

backwards up a wall...possessed by demons, according to official documents
Officer Austin, a 36-year veteran of the Gary Police Department, said he initially thought Indianapolis resident Latoya Ammons and her family concocted an elaborate tale as a way to make money. But after several visits to their home and interviews with witnesses, Austin said simply, "I am a believer."

Not everyone involved with the family was inclined to believe its incredible story. And many readers will find Ammons' supernatural claims impossible to accept.

But whatever the cause of the creepy occurrences that befell the family -- whether they were seized by a systematic delusion or demonic possession -- it led to one of the most unusual cases ever handled by the Department of Child Services (DCS). Many of the events are detailed in nearly 800 pages of official records obtained by The Indianapolis Star and recounted in more than a dozen interviews with police, DCS personnel, psychologists, family members, and a Catholic priest.

Ms. Ammons, who swears by her story, has been unusually open. While she spoke on condition her children not be interviewed or named, she signed releases letting The Star review medical, psychological, and official records that are not open to the public -- and that are not always flattering.
Furthermore, the family's story is made only more bizarre because it involves a DCS intervention, a string of psychological evaluations, a police investigation and, ultimately, a series of exorcisms. It's a tale, they say, that started with flies. More

"Little goblins" (Duendecitos)
The Blaze is discussing the story and all the day’s news [as Pres. Obama prepares his fifth State of the Union address] on their live "BlazeCast" with Editor-in-Chief Scott Baker beginning at 2:00 pm ET. A terrified mother claims she watched in horror as her demon-possessed 9-year-old son walked backwards up a wall and ceiling. Her claims would be easy to dismiss if a child services case worker and a nurse weren’t reportedly there to witness it all. More

"Goblins" in Buddhism
Dhr. Seven, Amber Larson, Wisdom Quarterly Wikipedia edit

Ancient Greece, and therefore what we call the "West," inherited its mythology from India

Ancient Greek "Pan"
A kumbhāṇḍa (Pāli kumbhaṇḍa) is one of a group of dwarfish, misshapen "spirits," shapeshifting goblins, gnomes, duendes, cretins, poltergeists, among the lesser earthbound forest entities of Buddhist cosmology and Indian mythology.
Kumbhāṇḍa was a dialectal form for "gourd," who may have gotten their name from being thought to resemble gourds in some way, for example in having big stomachs.
But kumbhāṇḍa can also be interpreted as "pot-egg" -- "pot" (kumbh ) and "egg" (aṇḍa), egg being a common euphemism for "testicle." These creatures were imagined as having testicles "as big as pots," much as salacious Pan is portrayed as constantly erect phallus.
Modern mythical American "Goatmen" (AM)
The terms kumbhāṇḍa and yakṣa ("demon," "ogre") are sometimes used for the same creatre, yakṣa (Pali, yakkha) in these cases is the more general term, including a variety of shapeshifting entities.
Kumbhāṇḍas are classed as earthlings subordinate to one of the Four Great Sky Kings (cāturmahārājikakāyika devas), namely the Regent Virūḷhaka, Guardian of the South. One of the chiefs of the kumbhāṇḍas is called Kumbhīra.

Goblin (kumbhanda, duende) drawing
A family from Nketa 7 suburb dumped its tenant's "goblin" at the Tshabalala Police Station, sending cops fleeing in different directions.

The incident occurred at about 8:00 pm on Wednesday. A family that claimed a lodger owned the goblin [kumbandha, duende] brought it to the station in a suitcase.

"We heard some screaming from the charge office and most officers who had knocked off rushed to see what was happening. At first everyone gathered around the suitcase, wanting to see what was inside," said a cop.

The officer said a traditional healer who had come with the family opened the suitcase and a weird looking creature jumped out of a bottle that was filled with blood.

"No one told anyone it was time to run. One minute, the charge office was full, the next, it was empty. I think some people went out through the windows because we could not all have fitted through the door. Fat cops and slim cops all ran for their lives screaming," said the cop. More
