VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. -- A Virginia Beach couple is convinced their four-year-old son is possessed by the spirit of a fallen Marine. Andrew Lucas' parents said their son can recall U.S. Marine Sgt. Val Lewis' 1983 death in Beirut, Lebanon as his own.

"He just starts crying hysterically and I say 'What’s wrong Andrew?' and he says, 'Why did you let me die in that fire?'" mother Michele Lucas told "It scared me, scared me! I didn’t know if there was a spirit coming out of him."

Lucas said her son can recall other specific things, like Lewis' address in Georgia.

The Lucas family worked with the producers of the show ‘Ghost Inside My Child’ in an effort to find answers. Show producers were the ones who traced Lucas' memories to Lewis' death. Despite going to Lewis' burial site in an effort to find closure, Andrew's parents said their child's memories have not changed.

"I would like to get a psychic, maybe help us through and see what’s going on," Michele said. "Is my house haunted? Is my child haunted? I don’t know."
