Indiana's so-called "demon house" is no more.

The home that sparked national attention over reports of it being infested with powerful demonic activity, leading to the purported possession of nearly an entire family, has been torn down, the Indiana Star reported.

The razing of the Gary, Indiana property followed its purchase by the host and executive producer of "Ghost Adventures," Zak Bagans in early 2014.

Bagans said he now plans to release a documentary on the residence's haunting later this year which will reveal the reason behind its demolition.

"Something was inside that house that had the ability to do things that I have never seen before — things that others carrying the highest forms of credibility couldn't explain either," he told the IndyStar via email. "There was something there that was very dark yet highly intelligent and powerful."

One of its last residents was mother-of-three, Latoya Ammons, who sought religious, medical and law enforcement help after allegedly experiencing a series of disturbing events inside. Those included family members levitating, speaking in tongues, convulsing and acting extremely violent.

Some of the incidents were backed up by members of the local police department, as well as workers with the state's Department of Child Services.

In one such incident, one of Ammons’ children was described as walking backwards up a wall inside of a hospital room, flipping into the air and landing on his feet. In another instance, at their doctor’s office, medical staff reported seeing one of the boys being lifted and thrown into a wall “without nobody touching him,” according to a Department of Child Services report.

After residing in the rental home from November 2011 until May 2012, the family was able to move to Indianapolis. The horrifying events were said to have then stopped for them.
