Recently, I received a phone call from a local newscaster. The reporter warned me right away that “This could be the weirdest phone call you’ve ever received.”
I expected him to ask me if I might be interested in babysitting for his young children. Not sure what would be so weird about that, as it’s what I do for a living…but that’s what I was thinking.
He went on to say that he was looking for a haunted house and my name was mentioned. I admitted that I’d heard about the supposed haunting, but had no stories to confirm the claims. Then I agreed, that this was the strangest phone call I had ever received.
We further discussed the possibility of a haunting and I confessed that I did have strange feelings about one particular room at the top of the stairs. The reporter asked if I would mind if he brought a camera into my home during the evening to see if he could get evidence on video.
I was skeptical that any newsworthy material would be recorded, but I agreed to let him check it out. He left his number and I was to call and let him know when it was okay to come with the camcorder.
I envisioned a large video camera on a tripod. It would be set up in the spare room upstairs over night and then be checked the next day to see if any objects moved around the room on their own. I just knew NOTHING was going to be recorded.
