The Reincarnation Of Carl Edon The Most Convincing And Bizarre Story Ever Told

Updated on April 2, 2017

Nell has been interested in Reincarnation for many years, and recently joined the Signs of Reincarnation study group for further learning.

Carl Edon Reincarnation.
Carl Edon Reincarnation.

The more I look into reincarnation stories the more I a blown away by the detail and memory of all these people who believe they have lived before in a past life.

Not only do they have memories from an early age, they also seem to be born with the memories intact and take it for granted that their family will automatically understand what they are talking about.

For them its normal to suddenly say, 'I used to be a Pilot' or 'I was Anne Frank' which are amazing real life reincarnation stories in their own right.

But the one thing that is missing from a lot of the stories is proof. Real solid proof. And this is why the story of Carl Edon is so extraordinary.

Apart from the memories that Carl insisted were true, there is a bizarre and stunning twist to the story!

'I was a German Bomber Pilot'

Carl Edon was born on December 29th 1972 in Middlesborough England. His parents, James and Valerie Edon were Christians and attended the Church of England services.

Neither of them believed in reincarnation, in fact it wasn't something that was ever spoken about in the home.

When Carl was three years old, he began to tell a startling, and rather disturbing story. He said he remembered being a German bomber pilot.

His parents were really confused. Where on earth did he get these strange stories from? He knew that they didn't have any books on the subject of the second world war, and because of Carl's young age there was no way that he could have read or seen these stories.


His father James soon began to take an interest and was the first to start an investigation into the stories.

'I crashed a plane through a window'

These are the first words of Carl Edon as he began to insist that he was a German Pilot. He repeated these words many times over the years, and it was always swiftly followed by a Nazi Salute.

He also insisted that he had been shot down in 1942!

He went on to say that he was on a bombing raid over England when he crashed. He then drew badges, swastikas and German insignia's. This was still when he was two or three years old, and had just started to learn how to draw pictures.

Not only that, he would draw pictures of the plane with the swastikas on them. Which was closely followed by an eagle which closely resembled the German Eagle emblem.

When asked what his name had been, he replied 'Robert, and my fathers name was Fritz'. But he was still slightly vague on the names.

By the time he was six years old, he had drawn a detailed plan of an airplane cockpit, and described what the different gauges were for. He also told of a red foot pedal that would release the bombs.

He then stunned his parents by explaining that the plane was a German Messerschmidt! But he wasn't sure.

He believed that the number on the plane was either 101 or 104.

By this time his parents were totally involved in trying to work out the details, and one night when they were watching a program about the Holocaust, Carl said that he believed his air base was close to a concentration camp. They were not sure which one.



'I lost a leg in the crash'

Carl gave detailed information about how 'he' had lost his right leg in the crash, and in a strange twist, Carl had a large birthmark on his groin at the top of his right leg. Studies have shown that when someone tells of a past life there is often something on the body of the claimant that corresponds to the original past life person.

By the time he was eleven, Carl was showing how he could do the goose step, the typical march of a German pilot or soldier. When his class mates began to laugh at him, he decided that it was time to stop telling his memories.

Psychologically, Carl also showed traits of his past life by being meticulously neat and tidy. And when he stood to listen to someone he would stand in a straight stance, as though he was a soldier. Even down to the fact that he had his hands firmly by his side.

Even at school, his memories would come forward and when a school play was casting for a German character, Carl would insist on taking the part.

Aryan Blond.

Carl didn't even look like his parents. They were very dark haired. Carl was blond. He did have blue eyes like his mother, but the rest of the family had brown eyes. As Hitler would have said, he would be a perfect candidate for the Aryan Race.

The trouble with all of these memories and stories was at the time they could not be corroborated. There was no proof, no documentation, nothing.

But soon something happened, that was so strange it goes beyond the realm of sheer disbelief.

'As a man casting off worn out garments taketh new ones, so the dweller in the body entereth into ones that are new.'

— Epictetus

Beyond Doubt.

In 1942 Heinrich Richter was shot down in his Dornier Bomber airplane along with three other crew members. The details of the crash included the fact that the plane had been damaged by anti aircraft fire before it crashed into a barrage balloon, and fell from the sky.

Three of the pilots were recovered and buried in Thornaby, approximately four miles from Middlesborough just after the plane crashed.

Here is where the story gets slightly weird!

Within the wreckage, the three bodies did not include Heinrich Richter! At the time of Carl's memories of reincarnation, Heinrich was not even known to have been in the plane.

Then, in 1997 twenty five years after Carl had told his story, more wreckage was discovered! Buried off Tilbury road Middlesborough.

When the plane was dug up, they discovered another body. That of Heinrich Richter. What's more, when they removed the remains of the body, they found that Heinrich had lost his right leg in the crash, and the leg was still in his boot! Remember, Carl told of 'his' leg being severed and in this lifetime he has a huge birth mark in the same place as the recovered body!

But that's not all!



Heinrich Richter Reincarnation

New photographs of Heinrich Richter have emerged after a local historian took up the tale, and doggedly followed it through with enormous amounts of research.

When the photos are placed together there is an uncanny resemblance between the two men!

As you can see in the photograph they could have been brothers, or it seems in this case, the same man!

Car's mother Val was completely stunned. 'It has to be him' She whispered.

But sadly the story doesn't end there.

Carl Edon Murdered
Carl Edon Murdered

The Most Bizarre Twist of All.

Two years before the discovery of the downed bomber airplane, and the recovery of Heinrich Richters body, Carl Edon was murdered.

It was 1995. Gary Vinter was working alongside Carl Edon at Loudhaul's Grangetown yard, train depot. Vinter, who had a history of extreme violence suddenly turned on Carl and in a few seconds of complete horror, stabbed the boy 37 times. He punctured every single one of Carl Edons organs.

Carl left behind his girlfriend Michelle, their daughter 22 month old Sophie, and his parents. Two months later Michelle gave birth to his second daughter Carla.

On the day that Gary Vinter carried out his vile attack and murder, Carl Edon had traveled to Skinningrove to collect train carriages. He was 22 years old.

More than 40 years earlier on the day the Heinrich Richter died, his plane had bombed Skinningrove and flew on to Middlesborough following the railway line. He was 24 years old.

Carl Edon and Heinrich Richter had both died taking the same route to their death.

Douglas Gary Vinter Double Murderer

Douglas vinter, better known as Gary Vinter, was given a life sentence after the brutal murder of Carl Edon. He only served 10 years before being let out on licence. He soon went on to meet mother of four Anne White, and they married in 2006.

Her family warned her to get away from him, but she refused. Soon she was telling her friends that she wanted to leave him but was too scared.

He attacked Anne and went back to prison, only to return after his release and murdered her. He is now serving a life sentence.

At Peace.

Carl Edon's mother, Val was firmly convinced that Carl was indeed the reincarnation of Heinrich Richter.

At the funeral of Heinrich Richter, which took place after they had found his body in 1997, Val and Jim, Carl's parents said that standing at Richter's grave felt 'eerie' and 'it was like they were burying Carl all over again'.

After the service they said that they hoped this would be the end of it all now.

Beyond Karma.

There are many tales of reincarnation, but this has to be the most bizarre, sad and poignant of them all. Not only was Carl reincarnated he was cruelly taken once again from this life. Even stranger was the fact that he died within feet of where he, as Heinrich, came down in the plane many years before.

To find the plane and the body of Heinrich and realise that there was no way that Carl could ever have known the story of the missing pilot was amazing. Many tales of reincarnation leave a question mark.

Did they somehow read it? Did the boy or girl in question hear it from someone else? And then we have doubts.

But in the case of Carl Edon and Heinrich Richter, there can be no doubt. These were certainly strange circumstances, or Fate, that connected these deaths together, of one soul and one place.

Why? We will never know.

      I have always believed that I died at Pearl Harbor, 7 December 1941. Since I could ever remember I could name the time of the attack, the ships class and names that were present to include the BB's (battleships), CA's and CL's (cruisers), some of the destroyers (DD's), the seaplane tender Curtiss, and to include saying the USS Colorado was lucky because if it had been there instead of in Bremerton,WA, it would have been bombed also. I can remember being trapped below decks and drowning. To this day I have a great fear of deep water.

      Hi John, thanks for reading. No Carl's mother had no connection the Heinrich Richter, at least as much as possibly known. Released on licensed means that the prisoner is released early from prison but has to report once a week to the police station or prison. They have to behave or else the slightest thing will shove them straight back inside! in a word they are still prisoners only allowed to live outside. thanks

      Was Carl Edon's mother connected in any way to Heinrich Richter? She could have been his mother. Forgive me, I am an American, what does released on license mean? This hub really got the neck hairs bristling.

      I've been looking for this story for years. I saw this story when I was 5 or 6 and am now 29, after all these years I only had a couple of details wrong, that's how much this story stuck with me. I'm a Christian but I've even saw a bible quote that leads me to believe reincarnation is possible but I won't know for sure until this life is over. Thanks for the article been driving myself crazy looking for this story for years on and off haha.

      Also, must add, Carl's parents, who must have been in their 60s at the time, came across in the interview as a very normal non nonsense local couple. There was no sensationalising in any way.

      I want to add to comment just to say i live in Middlesbrough and the first I ever heard of this amazing case was when Carl Edon's parents were interviewed on the local news having attended the funeral for the nazi pilot. Alot of the above facts were covered in the news story - this has not been spun by the author. The main that sticks in my mind is the interview with his parents and the looks of absolute bewilderment on their faces and in theior words. They were ABSOLUTELY GOBSMACKED that this pilot had been discovered. I remember they said they attended the funeral as they felt it was someone who they knew and had to! I had my doubts as to the true nature of the news story as it appeared and only followed it up on the internet a few years later and nowhere have any of the facts been changed. Bizarre as it is, this really happened.

      As many crime shows tell us, stabbing someone 37 times is "personal". Therefore I have to wonder who Gary Vinter was in his most recent life. Perhaps a German airman who'd known and had a grudge against Heinrich Richter? Or a Brit who was killed (or whose family was killed) in a German air raid who reacted to Carl Edon's "German-ness" and snapped? Just sayin'...

      Hi Lizzy, I totally agree with you about animals, in fact it wouldn't surprise me if people came back as animals! I had a strange encounter a couple of years ago.

      My best friend died, but for many years she always told me she would love to have been a dog, she worshiped them. she loved bichon frise' dogs. One day I was sitting down the park, its huge, among hundreds of people as it was really hot, and about five hundred feet away a woman came over the little hill with her bichon dog, out of all the people there, it spotted me, ran across the field and jumped in my lap! it went on to lick my face, snuggle down and try to go to sleep! the owner was mortified but I was stunned! maybe its just wishful thinking, but.....anyway thanks lizzy, nell

      This is a topic I find most fascinating, and you find so many of these stories about which to write, Nell!

      I do think there is more evidence for reincarnation and ghosts than there is for any of the religious dogmas about the "afterlife."

      Also, I believe not only people can come back. I do think one of our current kitties is at least, in part, one who left us too young of a mystery illness at only 4-1/2 years of age. She has SO many of the same habits/likes, and is a near look-alike, right down to the stubby tail, except that "Bobbie" is as white as "Sootsie" was black. If cats could talk...

      I agree -- it is interesting from the psychological standpoint. And it was interesting enough for me to look into it further and discover that Richter was not a pilot after all, but a turret gunner. You might be interested in reading some of the work of Ray Hyman, who has spent a lifetime fascinated by the way the very mechanisms that allow the human mind to operate so quickly and efficiently also cause it to be easily fooled. For example, the pattern recognition that allows us to immediately recognize a human face leads us to pick out face-like patterns in random stuff (like smoke, or wallpaper) and interpret them as faces. You're right about being cool stuff!

    • Nell Rose profile image

      Nell Rose 2 years ago from England

      Good point W.R. Shaw, and of course there is probably a huge story behind the whole thing that we don't know about. I was fascinated with the story, but like you, I do have my doubts too. Saying that, I just like how the human mind works and it was a fascinating tale too, thanks so much for reading, nell

      Edon claimed his past life name was Robert -- the pilot was Heinrich.

      Edon claimed he died in a Messerschmitt -- the pilot died in a Dornier.

      Edon claimed he died when his aircraft crashed into a building -- the pilot died when his aircraft hit the ground after being damaged by antiaircraft fire.

      There are only superficial coincidences connecting Edon's story with the life of this pilot. It's human nature to latch on to what confirms our beliefs and disregard what doesn't (This is called "confirmation bias"), thus believers will latch onto the fact that there was a pilot who crashed and ignore the fact that very few of the details Edon claimed to remember actually apply to that pilot.

      I don't find this story convincing at all. I think its possible that as a young boy Carl had seen a show or heard a story or something about WW2 and its as simple as that. Other than having the same nose, I don't think the two men resemble each other much at all and Carl does resemble his mother even though the article says otherwise. Also, the birth mark is unconvincing as is most of the tale. Definitely far from hard evidence of reincarnation. And the fact that this dead german was found around the same area that Carl lived seems to make the story even more ridiculous to me because it seems that the article is suggesting that reincarnation has to happen in the same geographical location, which strikes me as a bit retarded. I must also note that if Carl really was a reincarnated nazi, then getting stabbed to death seems appropriate and not at all sad

      Great story, I'm intrigued by these events too! I heard that Gorbechov's birthmark on his skull had something to do with a past life and how he was killed previously.

      Hi Nell - I love reincarnation stories and this one was amazing. Whatever your belief system, it's a wonderfully weird tale. When one of my sons was little, he used to tell me about when he was grown up. I figured he got the idea because he would hear adults talk about when they were children. His stories were all about wearing top hats and riding in carriages. He even stopped at a marble slab on the pavement in an old neighborhood and informed us that the slab were used to climb up into a carriage. Don't know where he got this stuff but if he was goose-stepping and Sig Heiling around the house, I'd have been a bit creeped out.

      My brother started remembering a past life as his grandfather who died 2 days after he was born. So I supposed grandpa's soul could have entered my newborn brother. My brother won't talk about it now. But he remembered people, places he had never met or visited, and working in a steel mill in Pennsylvania.

      Nell, you always find the most fascinating stories to write about and this is one fascinating tale here! Wow, those photos are identical, the nose, eyes, mouth ...

      Of all people to be reincarnated from ... a Nazi! Bless his little heart, but it did not seem to disturb him, even being so young to remember such horrors of that one's past life.

      This is one for the record books here!

      Well, come Thursday, we (all of us here in the US) will be stuffing our faces with turkey, stuffing/dressing, pumpkin/pecan pies, sweet potato casseroles, green bean casseroles squash casserole ... in other words we Americans can overstuff ourselves as we are known for LOL So, we may be missing in action for a couple of days until we recover from such gluttony : )

      Blessings

      Astounding, amazing, astonishing. Such an incredible true story, but one with tragedy and torment. Provocative events likes these cause us to think about our preconceived notions or beliefs, and examine possibilities that cannot be denied in our world and universe. This is a fascinating article, Nell.

      LOL for a moment you had me lost i was like what interviewee is Nell talking about . Forgive me this is a result of old age i really forgot its the Jewish interview you were speaking of AHHH!!

      Yes i did reach home safely luckily the rain held up for a few hrs before i left work in that area. Yeah i'd send you some pics :)

      Have an awesome night , make dinner for five. I am really hungry i can eat some baby back ribs :) with fries with melted cheese and bacon ummmm ummmm ummm. I can see your ears, eyes, nose and mouth watering , lol

      Hiya Jo, that sounds nasty with the rain and weather! you take care, hope you are home now safe? good luck with trying to find that interviewee I am sure you will be successful, have a great evening, hugs, nell

      Joanna Chandler 2 years ago from On planet Earth

      LOL yeah i know they are sensitive and pretty emotional about it. There are very few left still but they do interviews now even in their old age. I have seen many on you-tube and my heart really goes out to them. I feel if i personally talk with one I'd feel connected but i'd be very distraught after.

      I am here it's freezing at work we are having LOTS of rain over here and its sweeping some parts of the country a lot of flooding and road damages etc. The big rivers are filled and just waiting to overflow in some places which will be pretty scary.

      I have to pass on one of the highways to go home I am hoping it doesn't ..... because its already running on the grass and just waiting to seep into the roads.

      Have a swell day my sugar plum.

      Hi jainismus, that sounds fascinating! are you going to write a hub about it? thanks for reading, nell

      Hiya Jo! lol! yep London bridge is in America! just look it up in google it will explain it how and why we did it.

      You will have to be pretty sensitive to finding a survivor, I believe many just want to put it behind them, but good luck that would be an amazing hub to read.

      And yes I love our laughs! you always make me smile! speak soon, nell

    • LadyFiddler profile image

      Joanna Chandler 2 years ago from On planet Earth

      LOL what are you serious about selling the bridge? i did not know ha ha ha. Hmmm you telling me i have tried over and over to figure those Nazi bastards out , watch so many documentaries to get answers I have gathered some but it depresses me when i look at such stuff.

      Yet i do because i don't want people tell me i want to do my own research. I tried requesting to have an interview with a Jewish survivor but haven't receive any response yet.

      Sorry about not having or usually silly commenting episode on lol. We sooo need to start back ha ha ha. twenty four hours is becoming too little bit to fit in my daily schedule. #diplomaticwoman
