The Colonel’s Final Round – Is This Proof of the Afterlife???

20 March 2019 | Evidence?, Haunted items, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

The following was submitted yesterday. Assuming it’s real, this is stunning proof of life after death – read the explanation and watch the video. In 2015 my dad died after a quick battle with dementia. He was a scientist and a retired Air Force Colonel. When my mom passed in 2005, she returned 3 days later in the form of a blinking Turkish lamp, 3 quick flashes, 3 slower flashes, 3 very slow flashes. Both my dad and I were present. I asked him what that might have been, he said most likely mom stopping by before she left, letting us know things are ok. Right then we made a pact to do the same if one of us were to go first, we are both science driven and we

A Paranormal Stench?

19 March 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

It was 2005, in a decent house on a military base in North Carolina, with my then-wife when things started getting weird for me. I had been married for about 2 1/2 years at this point. Things were not at there best between her and I. There were a number of things that happened in this house in the 2 years I was there…. I’ll start at the beginning. Summer 2005: I had just returned from a tour in Afghanistan. I was getting ready to leave out again the following month. The day I arrived home from tour #1, my wife and I were talking. She was telling me about something strange that happened a few times while I was gone: About once a week, she would be woken up

I Saw the Hatman

18 March 2019 | Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I believe I saw the hat man. I was asleep, and for some reason woke up and was staring in front of me. I couldn’t move at all, but I noticed someone standing in front of our door. We have a hall night light outside our room, so it’s not pitch black. My husband keeps his vitamins on his dresser where the door is. So when I first noticed the figure, I thought it was him as he wakes up before me. I started to wake up more (I still couldn’t move) and felt my husband and baby still asleep next to me. Fear started to take over more, and I convinced myself someone had broken in.. I still couldn’t move. The dark figure just stood there staring at me.

Not Scared of the Hatman

15 March 2019 | Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was between the ages of 2-5 when I encountered a dark shadow figure. He had a round rim hat and long trench coat. It was all black. I couldn’t see its face or eyes and it was just an all-black figure. It never touched me or came close to me, it just stared at from a distance. It lurked and it felt like the nightmare lasted for hours. My mother told me I’d wake up screaming or I’d be sleep but screaming. It haunted me for years and then stopped. As I got older I forgot about those encounters. I definitely had my share of depression, stress, and pain throughout my adult years up until 2018. I experienced this awakening that’s hard to describe. I am definitely a different

Do I Have a Guardian Angel?

14 March 2019 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was told a number of strange tales by my brother’s brother-in-law this Christmas regarding how assistance was often provided to him in times of need, prompting the question – does he, and all of us, have a guardian angel? The first instance apparently took place one weekend as he took a ride on his motorcycle up into the North Yorkshire Moors. The moors are desolate and deserted, and the weather may change abruptly at a moments notice. They are absolutely not the sorts of place you want to be stuck in as dusk approaches, but as he reached the peak of a hill that afternoon, he realized that this might well become his fate. The engine of his bike began to splutter so he reached down to switch on

Who Peeks from the Closet?

13 March 2019 | Evidence?, Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was in my kitchen with one of my kids. While she was eating, I took a picture of her and posted it on Facebook. That’s when people started asking me, “Who is the man in the background?” Her and I were the only two in the home. I looked at the picture again and you can see an older man looking around the corner of the pantry. Our house was built in 1877.   Submitted to WCPO by Stephanie Ater – Fayette County, Ohio

The Last Supper

12 March 2019 | Haunted items, Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

At the beginning of my second year of college, I moved into a flat in West Bromwich. It was quite a distance from the university, but it was the only thing I could find that I could afford. There was a bus ride into Birmingham, and so I just had to get used to the idea of commuting. At some point, I had acquired a very large paper poster of Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper. I really liked the painting and would often spend time studying the detail of the picture. It hung proudly on the main wall of the flat. One evening, I went out and ended up at a party. I met a girl there who was an art student. We got talking, and I mentioned that I

The Rite

11 March 2019 | Your Stories

Having reached my elder years, I will now tell you a story of my youth. And, you will not believe my story. No. Not at first. If it hadn’t happened to me, I would not believe it myself. When I was a young boy, I learned of a rite that had been practiced by the males in my family for generations. I do not know how far into history it goes. My father told me that it was our way of marking a boy becoming a man. Of course, as I said, I was young and I did not understand. On the day before it was to be my turn, my father told me that my brother and cousin would be attending. They were older and had already gone through

This happened almost twenty-five years ago when I was a young girl. I grew up in a small town in Michigan nicknamed “The Friendly City.” My neighbors were all very close and we frequently visited each others’ houses. One neighbor asked if I would house/cat sit while she went on a 3-day shaman retreat (she is Native American) and I agreed. The first day went well and there were not any issues whatsoever. The second day, I invited my friend over to the house with me while I fed the cats in the afternoon. We decided to hang out in my neighbor’s side media room and watch tv for a few hours while sitting with the cats. She went to the kitchen to get some snacks for us and shut

The Ghost in Our House

07 March 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

It’s been going on for a few months now. My wife and kids would say have you noticed anything weird going on?  I said “No why?” My wife said, “I’ve been seeing things out the corner of my eye and hearing noises coming from the storage room.” Of course, me being me, I said: “It’s just your imagination.” A few days passed and my youngest son came to me and said: “Dad, something scratched me.” So then I thought maybe I need to go check out the storage room. So I did and I found nothing but I thought to make my son feel better I’d say “Hey whoever is here needs to stop bothering my family” I said, “There son, nothing will bother you again.” But for me on

The Prop Body was Real!

06 March 2019 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Did you ever watch the Six Million Dollar Man on TV? Back in 1976, for an episode called the ‘Carnival of Spies’, the crew were readying the Nu-Pike amusement park in Long Beach, CA. The director saw a corpse prop hanging from a rope in the corner of the set – shot in a funhouse – and didn’t like it so asked for it to be removed.  When a crew member tried to remove the prop body, its arm came off revealing mummified flesh and bone! The set suddenly became a potential crime scene and medical examiners were called. They managed to find a 1924 penny and ticket to the Museum of Crime in LA in the body’s mouth and were able to identify the body as that of outlaw

The Mystery Caller

04 March 2019 | Audible Activity, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

One lady had just recently moved into a new house. She got a phone call from an old lady who advised her not to use the gas oven until it had been looked at. When asked for an identity, the caller simply said, “Your landlord knows who I am.” The lady had the oven checked and found it to be faulty and actually very dangerous. Naturally, she wanted to reward the caller who had warned her and assumed it was someone associated with the landlord. She contacted the landlord and explained what had happened. The landlord went very quiet before telling her that previous occupants of the home regularly had had strange calls from an old lady offering advice as well.  The lady in question was actually the long-dead original

The Eye

04 March 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Not had many submissions recently (do submit your stories!!), so I went in search of stories on the net and found this one…. certainly I thought it creepy. One time, I was lying in bed and it was about 1 am. I heard someone walking down the hallway right outside my room and then my door started to creak open. I thought it was my stepfather, since he usually messes with me like that, and the door stopped after a couple of inches. Through the crack, I could see an eye staring right back at me. I shouted to him that I could see him and I thought at that point he would give up messing with me. After that, the door slammed shut and there were loud footsteps down

The House

01 March 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have read many supposedly true horror/mystery stories over the years and many taking place in old abandoned places, so I decided it was time to share mine. Unlike most “true” stories, I can assure with my entire being that everything and every detail is not only completely true, but the events are still discussed often amongst myself and those friends who also witnessed firsthand the following events, they still haunt us today and maybe someone out there has a better explanation of what we exactly witnessed… I grew up in a small town in central New Jersey only a few miles from both the bay to the north and the ocean to the east. What most people forget when they think of New Jersey today, is that it’s actually
