When he was 5 years old, Ryan told his mother before bed one night “I used to be somebody else”. His baptist family didn’t believe in reincarnation, but Ryan was so detailed about his memories that it peaked his mother’s curiosity to find out more. When asked to elaborate, Ryan gave some startling details about his past life memories including:
- He lived in Hollywood
- He met starts like Rita Hayworth
- He danced on Broadway
- He travelled overseas on lavish vacations
- He worked for an Agency where people would change their names
- The street he lived on had the word “rock” in it
- He had 2 sisters
- He died at the age of 62
Ryan’s mother checked out a book about old Hollywood from the library to see if it would spark any other memories for her son. As they flipped through the pages, Ryan pointed at a picture of old Hollywood actor Marty Martyn and said “That’s me, that’s who I was”.
Ryan’s mom, Cyndi, was shocked and confused. The man Ryan had pointed to was an extra from the 1932 movie “Night After Night,” and not much was known about him. But since she finally had a face to put to her son’s memories, she decided to seek additional help. Help in the form of Dr. Jim Tucker, M.D., the Bonner-Lowry Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences at the University of Virginia. The child psychiatrist has spent more than a decade studying the cases of children, usually between the ages of 2 and 6 years old, who say they remember a past life.
After further research they were able to track down Marty Martyn’s daughter to get details about her father’s life and found that all of Ryan’s claims matched perfectly with Marty’s life.
