Reader Submission: The Haunted Car

ghost in car

“This is a story of the very strange goings-on with my 1992 Cadillac Deville.

A few months ago, I’d finally saved enough money to buy myself a car after going two years without one. It wasn’t a lot of money, so I started my search on Craigslist. I would search Craigslist a few times a day trying to find something in my price range. After about a week and a half, I came across a 1992 Cadillac Deville that looked as if it just came off the production line. And the price on it blew my mind: $500 dollars OBO.

Ghost Photo: Haunted Swimming Hole

On November 22, 1913, a teenager named Doreen O’Sullivan drowned in an Australian swimming hole. At least one woman believes Doreen’s ghost appears in the photo above, taken in the same swimming hole last year.

“At the time of taking this photo there was nothing between us,” Kim Davison told a group called the Toowoomba Ghost Chasers. “I’m holding the little girl and that white head next to me with horns is not human, I can promise you that. Its fingers are on my shoulder and on my daughter’s arm. They are long skeletal type fingers.”

Davison also claims that something underwater twice grabbed her daughter’s leg on the day this photo was taken. A ghost? Or an overactive imagination?

Reader Submission: The Man in the Mirror

“I was just a little girl, about eight, when my mother and I went to a shabby motel for the night. As my mother talked to the clerk, I felt as if someone, or something, was staring at me. I walked away from the two adults and looked up at  a rather large mirror held up high on the wall.

There, I saw my mother’s boyfriend. He looked down at me with an odd, but cold, look in his gray eyes. He looked very sad for some reason, but when I blinked, he was gone. Seeing him didn’t scare me, but it did surprise me.

Four weeks after seeing his image in the mirror, my mother told told me that her ex-boyfriend had died.”

Mysterious Voice Leads Rescuers to Trapped Child

ghost voice rescue

On March 7th, 2015, a fisherman spotted an overturned vehicle in a Spanish Fork, UT river. The car was partially submerged, but when officers approached they heard a desperate voice pleading for help.

“The four of us can swear that we heard somebody inside the car saying, ‘Help,'” officer Jared Warner told KSL TV. “We were down on the car and a distinct voice says, ‘Help me, help me.’ It wasn’t just something that was just in our heads. To me it was plain as day.”

However, when officers searched the wreckage they found only 18-month-old Lily, unconscious, and her deceased mother, Jenny Groesbeck, 25. Rescuers believe Jenny died in the crash, leaving Lily trapped for up to 14 hours. The baby is currently recovering at a local hospital.

So who, or what, called for help?

“I don’t know what I thought I heard,” officer Tyler Beddoes said. “I’m not a typically religious guy. It’s hard to explain — it was definitely something. Where and why it came from, I’m not sure.”

The Spanish Fork incident isn’t the only time mysterious circumstances led police to discover an injured child. In 1994, a traveler near Placerville, CA spotted a nude woman laying on the side of the road. An officer responded to the call but found no trace of the naked woman. The officer returned the next day and eventually discovered a demolished car at the bottom of a 40-foot embankment. Inside was Nick Skubish, 3, and his deceased mother Christene. Police never did determine who, or what, the traveler saw that night, but many people believe it was Christene’s ghost trying to save her son.
