A Very Real Haunting in Seattle
Poltergeist – Investigation
“In this video, you can see that we get the trip wires being set off and some EVPs. In fact, the fist EVP that I present in this video is one of the best EVPs that I have ever recorded.
After seeing some evidence that Karissa the investigators from England captures, as well what I have here to show, I am confident that there is something paranormal going on in Keith’s house. Sure, I didn’t capture apparition drawing symbols on the wall, kitchen drawers opening on their own, candle sticks crashing into the wall or Bibles and posters bursting into flames. Now those would be really cool to see and capture on video to make the skeptical side of me become more convinced that this is a “demon” situation. Right now, I think there is a paranormal presence there that is bothering Keith.
What is this spirit’s (or spirits) goal? I am not sure. All I know is that there’s activity there that needs to be explored a bit more so we can hopefully find out its origin and purpose.”
A neighbor, person in my neighborhood familiar with this case for over a year now assisted me back in February with investigating my house. Documenting evidence. Bringing truth to light. Assisting in debunking the claims of others that the story I tell is and was a hoax. Several teams have investigated this house. All have except one has left with evidence. The only team to leave without evidence ironically is GA. If you watched the episode last year “Demons In Seattle” on the Travel Channel you were left feeling a certain way. One was we lied. We faked it all, and we wasted GA times. Specifically Zak Bagan’s. However if you are deep rooted in the paranormal and have experienced similar phenomena either as a child growing up, or as an adult. or better yet know someone who has witnessed phenomena and by their accounts now have questions of your own. The story GA showed on TV interested you and left you with more questions than answers. To you and to those new to the phenomena of Poltergeist like phenomena, demonic like phenomena, study this video Rich put together and study the videos on my channel and the information listed here. https://www.facebook.com/Washington-S… AND https://theghostvictimexperiment.word… by Gods grace more evidence is coming. This is a story of a 4 year ordeal. You are about hear EVP and see actions not often seen in the paranormal world. Ask questions. See you on the other side. Thank you Rich for assisting me with this. Your organization, and professionalism skills helped gather some of the most compelling evidence not seen in a long time.
Typology of Poltergeists
As theorized by Ernesto Bozzano, Benjamin B. Wolman and William G Roll
William Roll Typology
1. The Phenomena are focused on one person – Roll
Ex: child, wife, husband, spouse, one child. Example in the Bell Witch case John Bell Sr.
Ex2. As in our house. Activity began to center in and around my office and me personally.
2. They (being the Poltergeists) exhibit a certain spatial focus.
Ex. One area of the house or land is focused more than others. Attacks spring from one area above other areas.
Ex.2 Office and House Hallway is where a majority of attacks in our house occurred.
An Equilibrium does not exist.
3. The movement of objects sometimes displays a specific target and an odd trajectory.
Ex. Objects seems to fly at one individual more than others. Objects defy gravity logic and travel with velocity, speed and accuracy. Rarely seen launched by when seen in flight they travel an unusual path.
4. Sometimes the objects pass through walls or physical material without damaging the surface*
Ex. A bullet traveling though a wall leaves a hole. Objects observed traveling through walls were Poltergeists are concerned leave no damage from place of origin or destination.
5. Voices, Visions, Rappings and other Ineligible communication.
Ex. Loud Bangs, wall tapping, both repeatably, and writing on walls, or surface floors.
6. Exorcism rituals have no effect
Ex Exorcisms rarely have positive effect on Poltergeists. Less than 20% of all cases reported where exorcism was used did not change the situation in the house hold. In some cases it made matters worse.
7. Generally the activity ceases be it the medium or central figure leaves the premises.
Ex. Bell Witch case and other documented cases. In the Bell Witch case John Bell Sr. died mysteriously and the activity subsided or the Poltergeist activity subsided and eventually ended.
Keith Note – It should be noted that in 99.9% cases. The activity begins and ends abruptly. Almost to suggest there is a hidden schedule only known to the Poltergeists.
Ernesto Bozzano Typology is
1. Poltergeists can manifest day or night
2. They almost always appear in the direct connection with
the presence of a sensitive.
3. They exhibit great uniformity in all times and places.
Ex. All Poltergeists cases reveal and share several key characteristics regardless of the continent they appear on
a) Loud Bangs, b) they begin abruptly c) Objects are thrown – i.e. stones, furniture and kitchenware e) Attempts to ridden through religious means tends to make the matter worse. Appearance of puddles of water or Fires are all the same and eerily similar.
4. They are characterized by their brief duration
Ex. Activity lasts weeks, months, few rare cases last years.
5. They sometimes materialize as an occult personality capable of establishing a connection with those present and answering their questions by means of knocks. See Rapping.
6. It is necessary to include exceptional cases in which the mysterious personality speaks out loud, or speaks like a living person.
Ex. In the case of the Bell Witch Poltergeists. Not only did the Poltergeists throw stones at just about everyone. It frequently talked to everyone and explained it wicked reason for being there.
NOTE: On rare occasions objects thrown when picked up have a sensational level of heat attached to it. To suggest the object traveled either a far distance but definitely traveled under extreme pressure.
These typology’s above do not suggest they are the only characteristics of Poltergeists. They simply suggest and point out the characteristics that have stood the test of time and have been seen, recorded and experienced through-out the world.
This in my opinion should make the Poltergeists phenomena the most sought after the most studied phenomena within the supernatural/paranormal community.

Demons In Seattle -Poltergeist – Snow and Writings on the Wall
Two things was interesting and memorable about Thanksgiving Day 2014. It had snowed the days leading up to Thanksgiving. Snow was still on the ground the day of. That’s Memory #1. Memory #2 was my girlfriends son coming to pick up some Thanksgiving plates for himself and friends. Nothing unusual there right? After hugs to me and his mom he departs. He’s grown – never has lived with us. Minutes later there’s a knock on our door and its him again. In a chuckled voice he asks me “Dude what’s this writing on your lawn?” And that’s where this story will begin.
I walk outside our house its after 9pm Thanksgiving Day and say “what do you mean writing on the lawn?” He ushers me further outside and on the front lawn there written in the snow are words that look like “D&%ck”. Snow had been on the ground and was beginning to melt but its nightfall and the temp drops so the melted snow is frozen. The letters themselves has begun to melt but it looks like there are two lines. Line 1 carved into the snow says what looks like “D–ck” the second word on line two underneath is unreadable. We both look at the word and my GF son chuckles and says it looks like someone wrote on your lawn the word “D*&ck” The second word beings with a K and the rest of the lawn underneath is snowless. The snow has melted on that patch area.
We look at it for about 3 minutes. Its cold outside. He laughs, young kid, his friends are honking the car for him to come on as we’re departing we both agree this must be some weird prank because it looks like what’s carved in the snow is the word “D*&ck” and something else. I assume most of you know how writing looks carved in the snow after its been there awhile. By awhile I mean a day or two. The letter size gets wider and less readable due to the fluctuation of the temperature. Yes we had snow on the ground days prior to Thanksgiving. But by day time the temperature was low 40’s. In the shade mid 30’s. The writing looked like it has been there for awhile. A day or two. Our thought at that time was there must have been some teenagers in the neighborhood who while walking by decided to write in the snow. That’s the conclusion I left with. Keep in mind inside the house from 2012 to at that time Thanksgiving 2014 crazy stuff had been happening inside the house. Even with the unlimited amount of activity for the past 2 years – I walked away from my GF’s son pointing out to us we had writings on our lawn thinking this was some neighborhood prank. Bigger fish to fry inside the house than worry about some group of kids getting kicks out writing “d&^ck” and etc in the snow outside my door. I would monitor it mentally but that’s about it. NOTE TO SELF.
That’s November. Few days after Thanksgiving the snow melts. Writings gone.
Two weeks after Thanksgiving comes my bday. I have a Bday party at my house. 12 of my closest friends come over. Yes we did have activity. Tina’s notebook which we didn’t even know was missing materializes in the middle of the floor between 3 of my friends while THEY WERE doing Karaoke. Various alcoholic beverages, one being Pacifico beer. The guys and I go through 3 cases. Good Times. The day after the bday is cleanup day – the story of the bottle hitting the wall and noise arriving first and the bottle appearing minutes later was during that time frame. The Monday after my bday party I wake up and discover the wallet I keep in my safe for fear of it going missing is in fact missing. Safe sits in my office. Combo safe. Only I know the combo. GF leaves for work before me that day. I get up, shower and dress and go to my office to grab my car keys(my remaining set) and grab my wallet. Car keys are in the safe. My wallet is gone. Once again after about 100+ missing items you don’t really go around looking for stuff esp. when you know you purposely put something in the safe to prevent it from going missing in the first place. My wallet is done. I have a business trip to in a few days and I now have no ID, no credit cards. I call my job and tell them I wont be in today – I’m working from home. After that I call and tell my GF what’s going on. After that I grab my birth certificate and head to the Drivers License office to get a new drivers license.
An hour later I return home with my temporary drivers license. I do a quick look over the house and head back out. Now its time to go to the bank and get more bank cards, cancel the existing, etc. I even run to the Mall to grab a new wallet. Blah Blah Blah right. Are you seeing better yet feeling the inconvenience all of this is doing? For those who know Poltergeists, Demons and Malevolent entity’s. The entity behind all of this is watching EVERYTHING. That’s why IT did it.
I return home about an hour and half later from mall and bank and this video below is what I find in my office.
I could’ve been gone for no more than 2 hours. Maybe even less than that. The writing here or the material used to produce it is different. Its more runny. More oily. Patches of it are still wet. I attribute that to me just being gone for less than 2 hrs. As well as it being Winter vs. Summer. We own nothing even close to this inside our house. Three things you need to know when watching the above video. The cross hanging on the wall above the TV. That cross hangs in the living room kitchen area. Was in the living room before I left. Its nailed unto the wall with the all too familiar Upside Down Man(Native American symbol) which means “a man has died” based on Google searched. Directly across from cross is a pair of scissors – stuck into the wall. That’s been done before remember this video? See where the scissors is placed? Dead center of the “Upside Down Man’s” head. The 3rd thing I want you to notice is the bar stool. That’s the kitchen bar stool. Like the cross on the wall above the TV it too has been in the office before. But study the direction of the bar stool. If you look at all the videos of when a chair was moved be it down stairs or upstairs. Once again check the videos and compare. You will see minus of how many chairs are re-located. One chair is always purposely turned to face towards a TV: office living room TV.
Now I can’t explain that. I’m clueless as to why is that. But it means something. We might not ever know. But the chair facing the TV, or facing one of the “Upside Down Man” markings is not a coincidental. I pray to God and his Christ Jesus that someday, one day someone seeing this will be able to put two and two together. There are other things in this room out of order or in order “Order in Chaos” I should say. But lets move the story forward because it goes south from here.
The Upside down man and cross stuff are not new. What’s new here are my initials KL with the word “Die” in front of it. A milestone in my house is a new event, often a similar event with something new added. This house, this office has had similar events like this before. What’s new are the words “Die KL”. That’s a mile-stone i.e. call-out. Does not take a rocket scientist to look at this and realize this alone speaks volumes. People can debate what constitutes a “Residual Haunting” and what constitutes an “Intelligent Haunting” all day. This mile-stone as it exist right now has for me based on what I read about both “residual” and “intelligent” constitutes an Intelligent Haunting. This is another feather in the cap of what ever living in this house being a Poltergeist. Don’t get me wrong Demons have the power if not more to the very same thing. But in doing the Paranormal community a favor I’m going to lean towards Poltergeist. I’m in agreement with you. This is a Poltergeist. This true account alone should be a Parapsychologists wet-dream. But I digress. Back to the story like I said it goes down hill from here. Now every mile-stone in this house always signifies the activity is about to raise things up a notch or two. That’s been the pattern with the missing Bibles, burnt posters, objects being thrown, objects disappearing, and etc. Other house attacks, aka Poltergeist vandalisms have happened when GF and I were at work. House is secure. No forced entry. ADT is armed. Locks changed 2-3 times since living here. Police and crime reports show no other related activity within the 2-3 counties next to us. All attacks have been in day light hours. This happened in less than 2 hours. The entity knows I’m returning home and soon. No one’s coming in doing this? No one outside person or group of people can predict Keith lost his wallet today. Keith’s not going into the office today. Keith’s going to leave and be back at a certain time. He’s gone lets break in, paint and all and go to work on the furthest room in the house, a room upstairs mind you. Vandalize it and take nothing else in the process. Leave no paint residue anywhere in the room. No spilt paint on office furniture, carpet, wall etc. everywhere the paint is are the words “Die KL” “Upside Down Man” ” Paw prints” 3, “Cross” and etc. No blobs or etc. anywhere that would indicate who ever did this was rushing to get it done or more or less was amateur. I welcome that debate with anyone.
This was a few days after my bday. Two weeks after Thanksgiving. Please re-read paragraph 1 & 2. You have a luxury even I at the time did not have. Now lets talk about Christmas.
Christmas afternoon. We return home from a celebration with friends. About two hours later I’m in my office. Its late in the day. Nothing usual. I stepped out of my office and this video is what I find.
I’m not going to go deep into the events of the video above accept to say. This is a Christian prayer card and Native American necklace my co-worker bought me when he went on vacation to Arizona. Like I said before friends, family, paranormal teams and co-workers know of our ordeal and they all believe us. My co-worker bought two necklaces when he ventured into a Indian Reservation shop as a mean of protection. A necklace for me and one for my GF. This necklace now broken was mine. The card where you see the familiar “Die KL” remember the “Die Kl” from the video above? Now its “Die KL” on a Christian prayer card. I got this card a few weeks ago. I was in a Christian store buying new wooden crosses you see them upside down in the previous video-(all are now missing BTW). I went to this store to buy more crosses and Christian symbols. As I’m standing in the check-out line the lady behind me pokes me and hands me this card. She says something to the effect “Sir you should have this. You need this.” She’s about 80+ yrs. old. I smile and read the card and knowing 200% that I probably do need this kindly accept. Now this card being a gift was kept in my office on my computer desk under my monitor. I will admit I forgot what it said because after the “Die KL” was written on it my GF being in tears upon reading it threw it away.
Now if you look at the video and pic you can see the words “Die KL” those are my initials. The web substance does resemble the web substance on the 1st video. Its very sticky, but not adhesive. Its wetter than wet if that makes since. This is Christmas Day. I’m still not connecting the dots. Until
Few days later a new snow comes in. It snows for a day or two and the first night of the night I leave my house to retrieve something on in my car. My car is parked curb side. I have to pass a majority of my lawn to get to the car. Since its icy outside I avoid walking on the pavement and instead choose to walk on the grass. That’s where I see the new writing. There which much better snow. New snow. 1st night of snow are the words “Die KL” Once again its two lines. Just like the office and hallway (card pic) “Die KL”
Now we can return back to Thanksgiving 2014 where all of this really began. It began with my girlfriends(GF) son knocking on our door after 1st leaving with plates of food for himself and his friends. He knocks on the door to tell us on our lawn is the some writing we both at the time thought was the word “D*&k” It was not the word “D&^ck”. It was “Die KL”. It was just un-readable due to the snow melting. Just like the “Die KL on the card which if you look carefully is almost un-readable to.
Now I’m sorry, truly sorry I didn’t get a picture of that. In my defense I didn’t have my cell phone with me. But that’s a weak excuse I could’ve easily grabbed it. But me going back inside to retrieve my camera or cell phone would have caught the attention of my girlfriend. Seeing “Die KL” in both office and hallway is one thing. That plus the other events and I’m leaving a lot out trust me. Between each “Die KL” are days/nights of flying candles. Flying vases. Lights going off and on and worse. I see the “Die KL” on my front lawn and thinking some neighbor walking their dog is going to see this because at this stage every other house knows our house is haunted. That secret got revealed the day the 1st paranormal team came and with them came their logo and paranormal van with the name “No Bull Paranormal” on the side of van. People know. In the snow are the words “Die KL”. I take my foot and remove it. It never snowed the winter of 2014 after that night. But the “Die KL” would appear one more time. The last time being inside my car.
Like most boyfriends if your GF asked you to go to the store for a cooking ingredient you opt to go. This weekend would be no different. My GF asks me to go the store for OJ. I grab my keys, and throw on some sweats. I’m out the door in minutes. Using my key-fob I unlock the car as I’m heading to it. When I get in my car. My Hyundai silver blue Sonata – 2008. I sit in the drivers seat and the words “Die KL” is written on both floor of the car. Driver and Passenger. Written on the seats are “Upside Down Man” and “Upside Down Cross” On the ceiling is “Die KL”. Same oily, gluey,, non adhesive substance. But its still wet and that’s mostly due to the temperature and humidity outside. Once again same oily substance as what was in the house. And what was in the hallway. No excuse for not taking a picture. But once again my biggest fear and level of panic attack was neighbors walking by and seeing the words “Die KL” or better yet see me cleaning the words “Die KL” off the inside of my car upholstery. Instead of pic taking I pop open the garage door and back the car inside and immediately grab what ever cleaning ingredient is inside the garage (not much). Couldn’t go into the house seeking cleaning stuff. Once again GF would be like why are u looking for cleaning stuff and its 9am or so in the morning, when you’re suppose to be going to the store. Grabbing cleaning gear from inside would just beg the question. I find a towel and use the outside water faucet and some Windex I found in the garage and remove the markings. It’s the scene from “Pulp Fiction” all over again where Jackson and Travolta are forced to scrub brain matter off the innards of their car before Quintin Tarintinos character wife returns home.
This was an emotional story to recount. Number one just reliving it, and recounting it in one’s own brain is hard to do. These events happened over a year ago. That’s not easy to do ladies and gentlemen. Dates, and times therein get blurred and the more distance between then and now stuff gets forgotten. When stuff gets forgotten that’s where certain individuals leap in and try to poke holes in hopes of calling out inconsistencies. Its also emotional because up until now most of the activity in the home centered around the home. Meaning GF and I shared in a majority of the events that took place. We saw it together. After the “Die KL” episodes events begin to happen more with just me in the house. All vases being thrown are on my side of the bed. GF leaves for work and its just me there. Objects get thrown at me while in the shower. Lights go off with just me in the house. Objects get thrown at me while I’m on sitting on the toilet. I’m in the bathroom and GF is gone. Something walks by turns off the light manually and slams the door shut. GF is at work. We live alone. Wallet gets taken again in January. Candles get thrown outside my office. Im sleeping and something is poking my rib cage. Poking from inside the pillow while I sleep. I wake up and look at my Gf she’s sound asleep. As I mentioned before each NEW event is a mile-stone. Weeks prior to the 1st “Die K:” which was Thanksgiving Day 2014, there might have been more. We just don’t know. There are questionable stuff that happened weeks and months before that were weird that I ignored that we ignored that might be in fact Poltergeist related activity. I’ve gone into grocery stores and come back out and all my car doors are wide – open. Your in the middle of Safeway parking lot and you walk outside, patrons and employees are standing next to your car scratching their heads, trying to alert you(me) that all your car doors are open. My neighbors have rung our door bell 4am, 5am on a weekday to inform me that all my car-doors are open. That’s happened 3 times. Nothings ever taking. Nothings missing. Nothings sabotaged. Or is it? Your going 60 mph on the Hwy. Is the entity with you? Is it going to jerk the steering wheel while you’re driving? What does “Die KL” mean? Is it Omen. These question rule your mind. You become isolated mentally from your own partner because now you’re witnessing and experiencing events she’s not privy to. And when you try to fill her in or when there’s spillage to where she does see some of it. She erupts into tears of her own. And guess who’s sitting on a wall like spider-man benefiting?
When the “Die KL” started appearing that’s when I started putting 2 and 2 together. Once we discovered the “Die KL” in the office and room more activity began to happen towards me vs. towards the house vs. towards my GF. To this day my GF still doesn’t know about the “Die KL” inside the car. I think I finally clued her in on the “Die KL” on the lawn. Only because every now and then her son brings it up. That cross you saw stabled on the wall? Its missing. Its gone. Those religious objects you saw underneath the HD TV. There gone. That Big Black cross? That’s the same cross my cousin gave me. The same cross that went missing for a week and returned in the washing machine while it was running- the weekend Capt. America came out.
Now I want to be clear about something before I close this story out. This true story out. The entity be it a Poltergeist or Demon. I think we all can agree its malevolent. And I believe it’s a Poltergeist. A Poltergeist that’s tied to the land or building. The reason why this malevolent entity does these things is to raise anxiety within the house. More importantly to raise anxiety between the house occupants. Be it fear or anxiety both when raised provide fuel for the entity. I’m not sharing the fact that this entity wrote “Die KL”, or drew an “Upside Down Man” symbol, or took every cross in our house and put them upside down in key spots to make you think this all too Hollywoodesque to be true. The entity goes through great lengths to make it too fantastic to create skeptics and doubters. I smirk when people say something this active should be able to be captured on Video. Videos can be faked just as easily as a video can be doctored. $99 worth of software can do the trick. A extreme level of intelligence, consciousness, and mischief making is at play here. Calculative on steroids is at play here. It is true. All of it and more did happen. Its not happening now. Lets be clear. Its not happening now. But for about 8 months it happened everyday. EVERYDAY. I’m not trying to paint you an Apocalyptic picture. The picture I’m trying to paint is these things live and prey off fear and ignorance. If I had less wits than I have now I’d be peeing my paints and loosing it. Doesn’t make me special. Doesn’t make my girlfriend special. It just makes us grounded. They live off fear and ignorance. The ignorance portion I want to talk about 1st because the more ignorance you have about these things the more level of fear you will develop. The entity knows this. Matter of fact its counting on it.
To most people an upside cross, burnt Bible, burnt cross is terrifying. And that’s understandable. It to a degree it is. It’s terrifying to us. You try taking a shower and all of a sudden all the house alarms go off. You run to figure out whats going and something BIG, with mass, with density and gravity attached it runs right pass you – as it to suggest how little consequence you are to it. Its invisible. You see a silhouette and outline or nothing but then again you feel the wind zip past you based on how fast its running by you. Are you grasping the picture I’m trying to paint for you? But as equal as its terrifying the thing you have to do immediately when this happens is immediately put it in perspective. Ask yourself why is it terrifying? Its terrifying because Hollywood, Books, TV and movies therein and to some degree organized religion sells it as terrifying. More people are fearful of the water due the movie Jaws, more afraid of Sharks due a blockbuster summer movie that came out in the 70’s. The shark that appeared 20 minutes at the end of the movie is ingrained in our psyche some 40+ years later. The entity knows this. And by IT knowing this, our weakness we developed ever since man left the cave and began walking on two legs vs. all fours. The fear of the unknown governs us. The unknown or the fear of is at the root of most decisions being made. Usually the incorrect ones. I’ve made mistakes living in this house. My GF has to. To error is human. But lets be honest if this thing wanted to kill us it could’ve killed us in our sleep. It can’t kill you. It can make you fearful enough to make you kill yourself or your partner next to you. It can make you suicidal. But its not creating those things. Those failures already exist for the entity to exploit. If failings exists it will exploit and it will try to use it to raise the level of fear. We’re not special people (GF and I). This has been scary, haunting and terrifying at times. But the ignorance or the decisions, and loss of sleep we make due to ignorance is the realm of where these things thrive. Seeing “Die Kl” or an Upside Down Man which means “a man has died, or means death” or better yet a burnt Bible or burnt cross while troubling, more so compelling than troubling does not make me roll up into the fetal position. If you’re not rooted in truth but more so rooted in folk lore then yeah these events will get the best of you. That’s my reason for sharing this story.
A house is disturbed by a poltergeist…is it a ghost? And if so, what does he or she want?
by Keith Linder
With so much activity summer and fall of 2014, it just didn’t feel right staying home on Halloween night.
My girlfriend and I went to a Halloween party and tried to stay out as long as possible. Around 2am, we returned home and what we found floored us!
Every cabinet door was opened – again. This has happened so many times and even now we still can’t get used to it. Wine bottles in my wine rack were re-positioned or spread out on the floor. The couch and love seat were flipped upside down. Tables were found upside down.
Missing Cross (Gone for a Week)
The events of this day will always be remembered because it was the weekend Captain America the Winter Soldier came out. April 2014 – I believe the 1st weekend of.
A month prior to this movie premier my cousin from Dallas came to visit. Elementary school teacher Dallas sub-urb. Devout Christian. She was in the know of our paranormal events and decided to bring with her a wooden-metallic cross. Written on the cross itself were the verses Joshua 1:9, Phil 4:13, Psalm 28:7 and Matt 19:26 summation “Strength.”
Cross was prayed over and immediately hung in our bedroom at the time – the 3rd most active place of the house BUT being the place were we slept and layed our head. A cross positioned high upon the wall seemed accurate.
A week or so before the Capt America movie came out the cross went missing. (Keep in mind I’m only referring Capt America because the same weekend it came out is also the same day I was going to see it.) So a week before the cross went missing. And missing objects in our home is not new. Things get taken all the time. Sometimes they return. Sometimes they don’t.. The items that do return never get returned in the place they were taken. This cross would be no exception.
We noticed it missing the morning we woke up . Other religious objects had been taken before and with the house being severely active and etc friends, family and clergy all advised us to display our belief system openly as a means of riding the home of negative spirits. I’m a Christian. I wouldn’t call myself a devout Christian but a believer non-the-less.
So the cross is gone. Its missing. Girlfriend and myself at this stage gave up the notion of even looking for it after all it was gift from my cousin, a spiritual gift at that, a gift from the heart, no one else lived with us and objects get taken all the time, and items we eagerly search for never come back.
Now its Saturday morning (movie day) and the cross has been gone for a few days and like most typical Saturdays in my house its laundry day. By 11am I’m doing my laundry because in a few hours I’m going to leave and go meet one of my bed friends for drinks and movies. The guys, us geeks if you will are descending into Bellevue WA to watch the Capt American Winter Soldier movie GF doesn’t get into stuff like that but I do. us guys do.
I began my first load of laundry – colored clothing. GF, Tina is to and fro around the house doing her own thing. While my clothes is washing I decide to go into my office and watch TV, work on my PC , post in forums like this in search for answers to our Poltergeist problem.
About an hour later I notice something peculiar. My 1st load of clothing is still washing. Now I know there are long wash cycles but this was weird my brain knows how long it takes for my clothes to wash. So I’m in my office and I glance towards the wash room hoping to here the beep beep beep, the noise the washing makes it’s done. Clothes don’t wash for an hour, esp my clothes, esp a light load of clothing. So I glance at the wash room and sort of look at the time on my PC toolbar and raise an eye brow and after that I mentally shrug it off and keep working. A few minutes later I hear this knocking sound, banging, knocking. You know the sound the washing machine or dryer makes when you have shoes or a big object in it. So I hear this noise and its clearly coming from the washing machine – and once again I glance up from my PC and turn to face the washing machine or wash room I should say. Now in my mind I’m thinking – that sound wasn’t there before? All I put in the washing machine was clothing. Coins, chap stick, keys, etc wouldn’t make that noise. And even if it did those sounds would have been heard almost immediately. At this point the cycle had run near to over an hour. So why the loud noises now? Now normally I would get up. Walk to the washing machine and open and see what the commotion is about. But something prevented that idea from crossing my mind in that I was either pre-occupied on my PC or pre-occupied watching TV. It was very uncharacteristic of me to not stop what I was doing and investigate. Looking back and reliving the moment, It felt weird for me to not get up and investigate the noise esp with the previous events happening in this house. I acknowledged the noise and length of time it was taking for that load to complete and stayed in my office.
A few minutes later the washing machine finally beeps informing me that the load is complete. Few minutes after the beep I get up and go to the washing machine to remove my clothes from washing machine to the dryer. As I’m pulling out clothes and tossing them into the dryer (few inches away) I immediately grab something solid. Not clothing. Not shoes. Not anything except a metallic-wooden cross. I didn’t know what it was until I pulled it out of the washing machine.
There in my hand, wet and etc. Was the missing cross my cousin gave me. Two key points I want to make before I submit this story to you (which is 100% true). Some will say “well maybe the cross was already in there to begin with.” Not so. As I mentioned above the bang, knocking noise, the noise we all are familiar with-those who have done laundry-where large objects i.e. shoe, etc are in the machine. The noise would have been heard early on, esp during the spin cycle. The knocking noises I heard began 15 minutes before the washing was complete. When my machine is done it beeps. And also the washing machine was empty when I filled it with my clothing. Some might say well maybe you put the cross in the machine when you loaded it up with clothes. Nope. It was a colored clothing(Machine Wash COLD/WARM). I sorted my clothing carefully meaning items go into the machine almost one by one. A cross this size is not going to be grabbed by mistake.
Someone will also say well maybe your GF put the cross in the machine. My GF was not even near the washing machine. I never left my office. The washroom sits right outside my office. And she wouldn’t stop my wash load regardless. I do my laundry and she does hers.
I had to get those particulars out the way because I know how some people like to gravitate to the obvious. And that understandable but allow me to paint the picture near perfect as possible because it even hasn’t began to get weird yet. In my hand is the cross my cousin gave me. Its wet and broken (see pic below). I then call my girlfriend and when she comes to the hallway we both examine the cross top to bottom. It had been taken the week before. About 4-5 days prior.
Like I said before this would not be the 1st, 2nd , or 3rd time something like this has happened in my house. Now you see the reason why we’re displaying the religious objects is because of the stuff happening before, during, and after this cross went missing. Interesting enough after I glued this cross back together and placed it back in its original spot. It would be taken a few more times. Never re-appeared in the washing machine again though.
The other tricks the Poltergeists did or would do with this same cross I will share later on. This is a forum for sharing Ghost encounters or Paranormal experiences. So I’m sharing.
.”Stories of poltergeists are as old as recorded history, the first being recorded in a Bavarian farmhouse sometime in the 4th century AD. Those who claim to have experienced this anomalous activity all report the same thing, dishes and furniture where being moved and even thrown about the house by unseen hands.Puddles of water forming in strange places, and in some rare cases physical attacks and firestarting. “
Poltergeist – Upside Down Man
One doesn’t have to search the word Poltergeist online to soon realize most cases report of similar events. The DNA characteristic of a Poltergeist seems to be the same no matter what time period we review. Objects get thrown. Heavy objects get thrown. Objects that are thrown at people miss their targets with mathematical precision. Why is that? Other similarities include the loud bang known as Rapping. Objects go missing. Objects re-appear in different locations from their original spot and on occasion abrupt fires erupt.
But if you narrow down all the events that Poltergeist are known for and trust me I’m leaving out a lot of other things Poltergeist are known for. The two events that are extremely rare are the fires Poltergeist create and the markings on the wall.
This blog I want to discuss the markings on the wall at my house. The upside down man is what I call it and after months and months of not calling it anything I finally researched online: googling the description “upside down man” and low and behold Google rewarded me. The symbol is in fact a Native American symbol. The symbol albeit basic in appearance – an upside down stick person in all truth and purposes makes since. Nothing written on a wall by a Poltergeist is typically a good thing the tasks immediately becomes what does it mean? The upside down man by Native terms means “A Man Has Died.”
[The death of a man was represented by the following symbol. Any Native American symbols that were portrayed upside down signified that they had been killed]
Probably the biggest clue within our house and no doubt the most ignored by Paranormal Teams including Zak Bagan’s and Ghost Adventures “Demons In Seattle” episode is a writing on a wall thats easily traceable and more importantly provides an important clue as to the other events happening within the house.
Allow me to provide some back story about the writings on the wall and in doing so shed some light on what events transpired before the writings began. For almost 2 years the house was under going in Poltergeist related activity. Everything I mentioned above and more was happening. The advice given by friends, the internet, paranormal teams and clergy was sanctify the house with religious symbols i.e. Christian symbols.
When we started doing this both Bibles, crosses and cameras to monitor the Bibles and crosses began to go missing. Bibles came back either on fire or scorched. Crosses got burned. Several Bible’s and crosses are still missing. These items on OPEN display were done as proactive steps to remove the entity in our home. An entity we still did not know what was.
Which leads to an important point. If you don’t know yet what you’re dealing with its best to proceed with caution. Medicine ( remedy if any )should not be provided unless proper diagnosis is done. And when it comes to the paranormal that’s not going to be easy. But it’s not hopeless for the house occupant or the paranormal investigator. Maybe patience and more prep work, more study is needed.
But the information the Poltergeist has left is good. It does give all involved something to research and go after. In this case Google/Bing become your best friend.
Now I should also mention that where I live, the region in particular is fertile Native American land. The Pacific Northwest being no exception from the rest of America is rich in Native American history.
It should be self apparent that the arrival of both the white man and his religion Christianity had a negative impact on the Native people here and elsewhere. This blog wont dwell into all that went down but with careful research of both Snohomish and King county you will see things got rough up here in the 1800’s.
Did Native Americans die? The answer is an absolute YES! Is the Poltergeist trying to tell me something about how those deaths went down. For now I will say NO.
The writing of 666 and Upside down man (meaning death, a man has died) are fear tactics the Poltergeist uses to scare the house occupants. That would be my girlfriend and myself.
As you can see the Poltergeist is also writing on the wall “Die KL” my initials. Its written those multiple times in diverse places: House, Lawn and inside my car.
Each time its written this it successfully created anxiety, worry and strife with my girlfriends and truth be told even myself. I mean how would you feel waking up or worse yet come home to find 666, Die KL and Upside down man written in your office.
Its a very known and clever tact that Poltergeist do to home occupants. Like I said “history is the best reward for all research.” Most Poltergeist cases point to the entity focusing most of its attention to one individual. It can be 70/30, 60/40, 80/20 or worse. Its hardly ever 50/50. They always pick out one individual more than the other and they can pivot on a dime. Meaning don’t get comfortable thinking the Poltergeist is not focusing on you while attacking your loved one. Like the wind over an open sea, Poltergeist have no real rhyme of reason and just when you think you’ve figured them out >> they switch it up and try something new.
That being said I unknowingly had a role in drawing the Poltergeist unto my person. By me leading all the “Get Rid of It” projects in our home I no doubt made myself a target. Poltergeist love attention and probably the most thing they love more than attention is a challenge. Proactively trying to remove a Poltergeist with religious objects, with modern technology pretty much is you stepping into an old western movie in the middle of the town and calling out by first name – the known town gunslinger. They have no choice but to oblige you. THEY WILL OBLIGE YOU.
Writings on the wall especially 666, Die KL and an upside down are elements of fear. Fear feeds demons and Poltergeists alike. A thesis could be written about the energy contained in both negative and positive energy. One can just turn on their TV and tune into the world or local news to understand the power of fear and what motivations it creates. Fear inside a home is no exception. Fear attached to religious objects is definitely no exception. This Poltergeist in using a symbol never used before is no doubt a Poltergeist rooted within this region. I truly believe this Poltergeists origin is tied to the land. Bad events happening here and more so its origin could be Native American period. But the fact that bad events happening here is not the reason for writing on the walls. Its not trying to tell us something. Its trying to torment and keep us guessing. It’s done a good job in both categories mind you.
If there is anything related to why its bothering us and for the record its bothered previous t the Poltergeist simply wants to haunt anybody living on this land i.e. this house. My only hole in that theory is the obvious. Why only this house? 3-4’000 square of land. 2’300 square feet of house seems vanishing small for a Poltergeist to focus their attention on. But then again history rewards our research once again. Poltergeist are notorious for haunting one house out of many. One hut out or many (within a village) and so on.
But for this house and this house alone – History will forever mark this home as having the only “Upside Man” being drawn. For now!
Each house is unique. Poltergeist are no exception but a upside down man points to region and intent something every Ghost Investigator in my house failed to look into let alone call out as interesting.
