Brother of the boy `occupied` resentment over the narrative in `Conjuring`

The brother of a demon-possessed boy, the Hartford Courant has previously said he hates retelling the trauma of his family, which contains the plot in the new film ‘The Conjuring 3’. Carl Glatzel, 55, left Connecticut because of the painful events that began when his brother, David, began having hallucinations and delusions as a boy, the newspaper reported Wednesday. Arne Johnson, the boyfriend and later husband of Deborah Glatzel, Carl and David’s sister, claimed that a demon left the boy and entered him during an exorcism and that he killed his landlord, Alan Bono, in 1981. . Johnson was convicted of manslaughter and served four years in prison. A defense attorney tried to defend Johnson against the charges, saying the devil made him do it. The judge did not grant the arguments, which are based on claims from a couple, Ed and Lorraine Warren, who said they were paranormal investigators. The couple are the main characters in the film franchise. Carl Glatzel said the Warrens exploited his family for monetary gain. He told The Associated Press in 2007 that his brother had suffered from a mental illness as a child but was now recovering.

“It was hell when we were kids,” Glatzel told AP that year. “It was just a nightmare. I’m not going to go through this again. My brother is not either. ” The case was turned into a 1983 NBC television movie ‘The Demon Murder Case’ and was the subject of a book ‘The Devil in Connecticut’ by Gerald Brittle. Carl Glatzel sued Brittle and Lorraine Warren when the book was reprinted in 2006, although the case was dismissed. Brittle told the newspaper the book was taken out of print due to the lawsuit. “I did it because I was fed up with the case, and fed up with Carl Glatzel,” Brittle said. “It just wasn’t worth it to me. This had no bearing on the fact that the book was true. ” ‘The Conjuring 3’ opens on 3 June in the UAE theaters. The newspaper could not reach Arne Johnson for comment. Deborah Johnson, Ed Warren and Lorraine Warren have died, the newspaper reported.
