It was 1974, in a quiet town called Ossett in Great Britain, where religiously devout couple Michael and Christine Taylor attended a Christian prayer meeting held by Marie Robinson. Christine accused Marie and her husband of having an affair, which was when the possession of Michael Taylor began.
After he and Marie denied the allegations, he slipped into a terrifying state and began swearing profusely and behaving erratically. After months of this new mode of behavior, he was considered possessed. They contacted the local clergy who conducted the exorcism.
Taking over 24 hours, the priests advised that forty demons had been banished from his body, even though one murderous demon remained. Michael went home, murdered his wife and their dog, then he was found covered in blood and wandering the streets. He was arrested but later acquitted due to insanity.
