I was watching " the exorcism of emily rose" . I was scarring but raised the other side of concern to me.
Could she have had Schizophrenia or Dissociated personality?
While doing some research I found it was a true story of anneliese michel ... and even the court was in a great confusion whether it was demonic possession or mental illness.

Here is an article debating on it could have been a Psychiatric illness rather than possession.

Anneliese michel was not schizophrenic even though her symptoms greatly come in accordance with schizophrenia and delusions of grandeur. She was possessed. However, such has not been proved since science does not believe it. It all comes down on what you believe
