The Reincarnation Of Carl Edon The Most Convincing And Bizarre Story Ever Told
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.
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.
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
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!
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.
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.
Carl Edon's Mother.
Police photo fit picture made to show the family together.
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.
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.

Questions & Answers
is it true that a person takes his/her character traits to next life?
I believe so, yes. I can't imagine that we would be completely different. Maybe in some ways we will differ, but not on our personality.
