True Ghost Story: Night School

I used to work as a policeman on a military base. I loved working the night shift, but weird things sometimes happened.

One night, I was on patrol with my partner when we went to an elementary school to investigate a triggered alarm. We looked around, but everything was in order, so we left and continued on with our patrol. About 15-20 minutes later, the alarm at the school went off again. We went back to check and saw an open maintenance door leading to the boiler. There was nothing there, so we closed the door and blocked it.

Twenty minutes later, the alarm went off again. We returned to the school, but there was no one there. Half an hour later, the alarm rang out again. We went back and once again found nothing. This went on until three in the morning when we finally had to call the custodian of the building for help. We searched every corner of the school until we eventually found an open maintenance door. It led to a tiny room, about the size of a closet, and the light was on inside.

Reader Submissions: 4 True Ghost Stories to Keep You Up at Night

Here are four more true ghost stories submitted from Ghost And Ghouls’ readers. We’ve got a haunted water tower, a haunted duplex, and two spirits that wander quiet homes in the dead of night.

 The Haunted Apartment

“I once lived in an apartment that I am sure was haunted. I lived on an end apartment in a row of duplexes. It was actually my next door neighbor, a senior citizen, who came and told me she thought there was a ghost there. The ghost made noises that were completely unexplainable, that were so loud she could hear them too. It got so bad she had her son come and stay with her. (He was an ex-con, 6’2″, big, tough, and scary himself).

One morning, after a very bad night with the noises, he came over to actually check if I was okay. He was literally as white as a sheet and scared badly. He said he couldn’t take it anymore and his mother was too scared. They moved within a month.

I stayed and it got so bad I actually put my toddler son in the room with me at night. He would keep saying he saw someone coming out of the closet. Every time I would go in his room, I swear I would always see something black, out of the corner of my eye around his closet.

I felt it was beginning to affect us both, physically and mentally. Every time you would walk into the apartment it felt as if something was very wrong. We finally moved. I have since noticed that no one lives in that apartment for very long. I never really believed in ghosts until I lived there.”
