Back in 2008, I started a construction job in St. James parish LA. After living out of hotels for the first two months, a couple of friends of mine and I we decided to look for a trailer park and rent a mobile home. After a while we found a park with a few trailers and found one to rent. A few things I didn’t like about the place was that we were in a swampy area, big nasty trees, poorly lit, and terrible cell phone service, but hey I wasn’t complaining.
The first few days were great, had my room set up with my things, rented furniture for the living room and kitchen. After about the fourth day, I was laying in my room just about to doze off when I heard a tapping sound coming from the floor of the trailer. I brushed it off thinking that it may have been a raccoon or a dog looking for something to eat. Went to work the next day and when I returned, I noticed that all my drawers in my room were opened along with closet door. Again I brushed it off thinking that my room mates were messing with me. Later that night in bed I heard the sound of my door opening, I opened my eyes and it sure was, slowly. I yelled to my friends to stop, that I was trying to sleep. This started to happen quite often and I became concerned because they swore up and down they weren’t doing it.
The one that really startled me was one night as I was sleeping, I felt my legs starting to bounce as if someone was jumping on my bed, then my whole body started to bounce, I tried to open my eyes but couldn’t. I felt my body going higher and higher until suddenly it stopped. I was still, finally I could open my eyes… when I did I was face to face with the ceiling of my room! I dropped back down to my bed and all of a sudden there was a demon standing over me, he was black with long dreadlocked hair and wild crazy eyes, he bent down to where it and I were face to face, he began to snarl/laugh at the same time. All I could do was lay there, petrified almost. I could feel the bed shaking as it moved around. After a few seconds it disappeared, I felt a sudden burst of energy and bolted from the room running down the hall way to wake everyone up and tell them I wanted to get the hell out of there.. They laughed at me and said I just had a nightmare. That was the last time I saw the demon spirit although the noises continued. Eventually one of my room mates left and I decided to take the room he was in.. the strange occurrences continued, one of the guys said he saw a little girl standing at his door way one night. Another worker of mine told me that his son was being bothered by a young boy that would come out of his closet at night, he stayed in a trailer across the street from me.
Another worker of mine who stayed three trailers down, said he would hear foot steps in the hallway while he was sleeping and sometime would feel as if someone or something was touching his head at night.
Not sure how old the park was or the history of the place, but apparently these things were going on for a while. I used to pay this young boy to maintain the yard for a few bucks and decided to ask him if he had any issues as I did. His reply was YES!
So long Louisiana!!
