Ryan, a 10-year-old boy from Oklahoma, claims he was reincarnated and was Marty Martin, a forgotten actor and agent in a past life. A renowned child psychiatrist, Dr. Jim Tucker, interrogated Ryan and discovered that 55 of his details matched Martin’s life perfectly.
Ryan Hammons was born in 2004 to a Baptist family in Muskogee, Oklahoma, and referred to his past life as Marty Martin. He had a clear memory of his previous life as an agent in detail which even convinced the experts that the young man may have in fact been reincarnated.
Marty Martin, the agent in Ryan’s previous life, was born in 1903 and died at 61 in December 1964.
Ryan’s mother, Cyndi, mentioned that he had nightmares that would not go away when he was four years old. It was usually about his heart exploding and Hollywood most importantly. He talked during those nightmares.
The incidents escalated when the kid saw a movie called Night After Night and pointed out during the credits that it was him, the agent.
Ryan’s family contacted Dr. Tucker who was able to contact Martin’s daughter after much difficulty. The 55 details provided by Martin’s daughter and Ryan perfectly aligned. These included his siblings, the street on which he lived, and the names of his children all played a role.
The most shocking part was that on Martin’s death certificate, his age was written incorrectly. However, Ryan was aware of the correct one.
