In a groundbreaking revelation, Ryan, a 10-year-old boy from Oklahoma, proclaims his reincarnation as Marty Martin, a forgotten actor and agent from a previous existence. Dr. Jim Tucker, a renowned child psychiatrist, actively investigated Ryan’s case and uncovered an astonishing alignment of 55 specific details with Martin’s life.

Ryan Hammons was born in 2004 to a Baptist family in Muskogee, Oklahoma, and referred to his past life as Marty Martin. With a remarkably vivid recollection of his past life as an agent, he convinced even the experts that he may have indeed experienced reincarnation.

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.
