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 love these stories. I am not much into witches and all that but there really seems to be something to these stories since children that young could not possible make up all that stuff! Such a shame he did not get to live his life.

      A fascinating but terribly tragic story which I've read about in a few news articles. I hope their respective families will find the peace they need. If you are genuinely seeking answers to the mystery, then you will find the answers you are seeking here, most notably the section on ' Spontaneous Past-Life Recall By Children As Proof Of Reincarnation ', which is in the subsection in Part B, of which I'll leave a link here for you; viz:-

      http://www.comparativereligion.com/reincarnation3....

      It should clear up any fallacious doubts and I hope you find it useful.

      Nell this is definitely the most convincing story about reincarnation I have come across. It leaves me with no further doubt that reincarnation does happen. I hate to hear Carl Edon was killed and at such a young age, though. That Vinter is one brutal human being; it is a shame he was released to kill again.

      Voted up - fascinating article!

      Nell, when you compare the two pictures, both men have the same ears, nose, and mouth. It's very sad that Carl Edon was murdered and ironic that it happened near the original point of death.

      I believe in reincarnation, although I haven't come up with a good reason for why it happens. I would like to think that the original soul had something left undone that the new body could carry out. That certainly is not so in this instance.

      Have you done any research as to why certain souls reincarnate? That would make for a fascinating topic.

      I don't know why, but I have always halfheartedly believed in reincarnation. There's been times in my life that I felt like I'd been there, seen that before, it could be a town or just a street that seemed familiar and I'd not been there before, yet it seems impossible. I hope it is true. This story is compelling and they do look alike, also his mother, who knew him the best, believed it. Someday we all will get to see if it's truth or fiction. I love this kind of story. I hope you write more on the paranormal of which I'm a fan.. Thank you Nell...

      Hi Nell Rose;

      In regards to the link I gave in my last comment, reincarnation does not seem to stand up in the light of God's Word as emphatically explained in aforementioned link, which includes how unclean spirits through possession have knowledge of those they have already inhabited previously. The purpose? To upset people's faith and undermine the sovereignty of God.

      Your article obviously touches upon unearthly/paranormal aspects, so believe that the whole truth of the matter can only be fully understood from a spiritual viewpoint. Even if one tries to negate the spiritual standpoint, there is still not enough proof for reincarnation as summarized by the respected and eminent late Dr. Ian Stevenson, the foremost expert on these matters.

      The ' elephant in the room ' here is that Carl Edon and Oberfeldwebel Heinrich Richter cannot be the same man because there are two separate bodies.

      I've searched a little further into the case and after checking out Guisborough's historian Bill Norman, who wrote the book 'South Bank Dornier ' about the life of Heinrich Richter, and several other news reports, this is what I found, which will hopefully shed a little more light and clarity on the case.

      Oberfeldwebel ( sergeant ) Richter was a mechanic turret-gunner, not a pilot, and was the last of four burned corpses recovered from the Luftwaffe Dornier Do 217 E-4 bomber ( the first three having already been recovered many years before ). The main part of the wreck was bulldozed over and Heinrich, being in the turret section at the extreme end of the plane, could quite easily have been overlooked first time round. The plane was re-discovered by water-board workers it was reported, a few hundred metres away from where Carl Edon was stabbed.

      There seems to be two different stories that Carl is reported to have been talking about. One, is that he was a pilot named ' Richard ' who went crashing through a window in his Messerschmitt and the second story is the first one I've mentioned about being Heinrich Richter.

      Again, I hope you find some of this information useful.

      Kind Regards;

      R.Q.

      I love these stories, Nell, and this one is very well done. This is similar to one I saw recently on TV. I forget which channel, but I think it was History2. It was a young American pilot named Jimmy, and the story had a much happier ending. But still, the boy had memories starting about the same age. There probably would be more of these stories except that most parents pass them off as imagination and stifle their children into the mainstream before they can fully develop. Well done. Voted up!

      P.S. These stories always bring out the hide-bound, head blind...the same people who stifle their children. Tis a pity.

      Nell Rose 2 years ago from England

      Hi Romeos, thanks for coming back, sorry to disagree, but my opinion is that we have no more proof of demons or unclean spirits than we do of reincarnation. You have to remember that the Bible was written by people two thousand years ago, that didn't even know why a volcano would explode, or how a river could turn red because of sulphur. In other words they were just guessing like we are.

      No there isn't enough proof for reincarnation, any more than there is proof of unclean spirits, demons or devils, but that's what science is for I believe, to check out alternate realities, life after death and so on. As for Dr. Ian Stevenson, he can't possibly be an expert on something that cannot be proved! That's a bit like me saying I am an expert on Aliens! never seen them, can't write about them! lol!

      Sorry, but I get a bit annoyed at so called 'Experts' that give themselves a high up name and Doctorate, over something that doesn't exist! or if it does nobody on this earth, apart from maybe Jesus has seen anything like it!

      As for the 'Elephant in the room' who cannot be the same man because they are two separate bodies' means that you don't quite understand how reincarnation works. Two bodies, one soul! One dies, the soul goes into the other person!

      As for the extra proof of carl being wrong, he was bound to get the name wrong, or even whether he was a gunner or pilot, nobody could remember everything about their past lives, he was bound to make some mistakes as his mind would not be capable of holding all the memories!

      Thanks for your opinion, I totally appreciate you reading and commenting, and sorry if I go of on a tangent! LOL! have a great day!

      Hi again Nell; hate to make a nuisance of myself but just returning to address your reply to the second comment I made on your mysterious and engrossing Hub article.

      The late Dr. Ian Stevenson was a foremost expert, inasmuch as all of the many cases he investigated and reviewed, even when all of the cases were added together did not reveal definitive proof for reincarnation, which is surely the point here. He gained his authority through his hard work in this field.

      Secondly, John of Patmos in the Book of Revelation in the New Testament was banished to that island by the Roman authorities at that time to work in the sulphur mines, so I would say that he probably had a good idea of the effects of sulphur in answer to your reply.

      Thirdly, regarding your reply to the ' elephant in the room ' - two bodies and one soul? That is called ' transmigration ' not ' reincarnation '. There is a difference between soul and spirit, and both ideas are refuted by the scripture passage of:

      Hebrews 9:27...."...And it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgement. " ( KJV )

      I certainly feel for the parents and family of Carl Edon, especially his mother as it seems that she is so desperate to hold on to the memory of her son; who wouldn't be after such a tragic loss?

      In an endless cycle of reincarnation, how will anyone ever meet their loved ones after death if there is supposed to be a continual cycle of rebirth? That seems so unfair and what kind of comfort can this give to his mother and loved ones if, according to this belief, she will never meet him again?

      Anyway, thanks for giving me the right of reply and have a peaceful night.

      Regards;

      R.Q.

      Nell and Romeo - I find it so interesting about the soul and the spirit being different. I wrote a hub on exactly the same thing. It all came from my own belief. I will have to go check out that last link you posted, Romeo. Thanks.

      Nell...Stories of reincarnation certainly do fascinate. This one is as bizarre as you have stated. You gave this story to us so clearly & factually, it makes me ponder more seriously.

      The resemblance is quite astounding. These men have identical features.

      I can't even begin to imagine what it's truly like to realize that YOU are the reincarnation of another human being who lived in the past. More so, it has to be a shocking revelation to parents of a child who begins to unfold facts that he/she simply could not have known!

      Very interesting work Nell. You always entertain....UP+++tweeted

      Another fascinating story of reincarnation you have written! There are many things in life I don't fully understand, and this subject is one of those. Who is to say it is very real??

      I did enjoy the read and the discussion.

      Truth is certainly stranger than fiction and you've certainly proved that here. Imagine the poor boy being haunted by those memories! Imagine if you will, the soul of Heinrich Richter looking for new life only to have it cut short so brutally.

      As always Nell, you give us much to think about. This was certainly interesting.

      Voted up, useful, awesome, and interesting.

      WAW!! Nell very very interesting and sad about Carl's death. I do not believe in re-incarnation but these stories you are digging up is playing with my mind lol. Maybe it's the same spirit i don't know, but the stories seems to match.

      I don't like any German soldier that was in WWII make it worst their names are Heinrich yuck. It reminds me of that other evil devil who was the boss over the concentration camps Heinrich Himmler .

      Thanks for sharing and taking the time to do up this hub.

      I hope all is well and that London's bridge isn't falling down again ;) he he he.

      Hi Romeo, thanks again, but er, I once again have to argue! sorry! lol! whoever wrote the bible was just a person, who was guessing whether we had a spirit or soul, so to say one is one thing and the other, well the other, is just being picky. Nobody knows, so I say soul, spirit, and whatever, but hey that's me just being pedantic! have a great day!

      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.

      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 : )

      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.

      captain sane 2 years ago

      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

    • W. R. Shaw profile image

      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.

    • 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

    • W. R. Shaw profile image

      W. R. Shaw 2 years ago from Pacific Northwest, USA

      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

      Hi W.R. yes I get what you mean, the patterns are called pareidolia and simulacra, that reminds me, I wrote a hub about those! lol!

      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...

      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

      Jackie Lynnley, I had to laugh out loud when I read your comment. I have no idea what reincarnation and witchcraft have in common, but let me be the first to tell you the answer....NOTHING..LOL!! This was an amazing read, I love reading stories about reincarnation, this one is sad, but many are not. If you like this type of reading, check out the series on TLC called The Ghost Inside my Child! It's pretty cool!

      Thanks for reading Tracy, I am so glad you liked it. The stories of reincarnation fascinate me, that's why I have to write about them. The Ghost inside My Child producers recently contacted me to ask if anyone knows of new stories of reincarnation, the info is on my other article, children that have been reincarnated, if you are interested. thanks, nell.

      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'...

      Voted up and interesting! ;D

      Fine Hub. One day I will write one or two you will like about this same subject in a different part of the world. Give me time. One thing to remember: With God, all things are possible.

      I'm new to this hubbing thing! I'm glad I started hubbing because you can discover cool stories here and there, like yours. I just finished writing a hub on psychics and mediums just because many 'fake' ones give the possible 'real' ones a bad name. I'm always intrigued by stories like yours because not everything can be explained. That's really the mystery of life! Enjoyed the read!

      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.

      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.

      Thanks MJG for your added information. That's fascinating! The say the truth is stranger than fiction, and amazing that you live near enough to know the real full story, so thank you!

      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.
