I heard about it, but I'm not sure where. I believe it was a case of poltergeist activity, using what happens in my own home as a basis for this opinion. Though some skeptics claim the son did it using magic tricks, Joe Nickell being one of them.

Quote

The case was later re-evaluated by the skeptic Joe Nickell who concluded that all the phenomena could be explained by deliberate trickery from Hermann's son James Jr. According to Nickell, both Pratt and Roll were rather credulous and had little understanding of magic trickery. Nickell concluded that "Taken as a whole, the evidence strongly points to twelve-year-old James Hermann Jr. as having been the deliberate cause of the Seaford "poltergeist" outbreak. The motive, means, and opportunity were his, and the case was unwittingly prolonged by the credulousness of adults."
