In the late 1960s, a 3-year-old boy in Syria’s Golan Heights region suddenly became the centre of attention after he had solved his past life murder mystery.
The Story Of The Druze Boy Murder Mystery:
The boy belonging to the Druze ethnic group had revealed that he was murdered with an axe in his previous life. The Druze community strongly believe in reincarnation and was shocked to see the little boy and what he did uncover.
The Druze primarily live in an area known as the Golan Heights in Israel, adjacent to Syria. According to the boy, he was born in Syria and one of his neighbours killed him.
A Birthmark And Reincarnation:
The boy was born with a red birthmark on the head and his name was never disclosed. Like many other cultures, the Druze believe that such marks come from the previous birth.
Many people through the cultures believe that children of this age can have a bit idea about their previous life. Their statement and claims are taken seriously and people often put their efforts to know their previous life.
A Search Investigation:
The 3-year-old boy remembered the place he lived, where he was murdered and how. The boy further claimed that he was murdered by an axe.
A group of local men took interest in the boy’s story and decided to visit the boy’s previous life birthplace along with the boy. Eli Lasch was one of the group members who worked as a senior consultant in coordination with health services in the Gaza Strip and had a keen interest in this strange case.
Following the description, they took the boy to two different villages, the little boy didn’t found any connections. After that, he recognized the third village as the place he lived before and was killed by his neighbour.
A Missing Case:
The boy remembered nearly all the names of the village inhabitants including his own and that of the killer. After disclosing his previous birth name, the villagers recounted about a man with the same name missing for the last 4 years.
Revealing The Murderer:
The group then went through the village and at one point the boy pointed out this past life house. Curious bystanders gathered around and suddenly the boy walked up to a man and called him by name. The man acknowledged that the boy correctly named him and the boy then said:
“I used to be your neighbour. We had a fight and you killed me with an axe.”
Dr. Lasch then observed that this man’s face suddenly became pale as a sheet. The 3-year-old then stated:
“I even know where he buried my body.”
The boy then led the group, which included the accused murderer, into fields that were located nearby. The boy stopped in front of a pile of stones and asserted:
“He buried my body under these stones and the axe over there.”
Digging Up The Dark Secret:
Excavation at the spot under the stones revealed the skeleton of an adult man wearing the clothes of a farmer. What was observed on the skull was the linear split that was consistent with an axe wound. According to many, it was in the same spot as the birthmark of the boy.
Upon seeing this, the killer confessed the crime he did but was not handed over to the Police. Dr. Lash suggested a suitable punishment for the murderer and the punishment is still not known.
This strange story is also featured in German reincarnation therapist and writer, Trutz Hardo’s book “Children Who Have Lived Before.” The book has stories of children who remembered their past birth stories. The stories have been included after accurate verifications.
Overall, particularly this case lacks conclusive evidence. Further, the details that were not revealed includes the name of the boy, the victim and the murderer. Dr. Eli Lasch died in 2009, after which the case could not be investigated further.
Yes, it could be a hoax but this is still a fascinating story, yet a mystery just like other reincarnation stories.
