I'm going to be sparse with the details, because this is a difficult encounter as it is.
Many years ago, I was a victim to an awful crime. I didn't know all the scumbags involved, save ONE of them, but was only thankful that I escaped with my life. I never went to police with one said person's ID, because I didn't think they would believe me (he was a cop) and we'd also dated in high-school and I'd dumped him. I was also VERY embarrassed by the whole thing.
About a month later after said crime, I was sleeping over at my boyfriend's house, when I saw a strange grey image at the end of the bed. I almost leaped out of the window at the head of the bed when I saw him. It was one of the scumbags. I was totally freaking out, because, even though I could tell it was him, he was all grayish. My erratic behavior woke up my poor boyfriend, who then saw him too. Then I was REALLY trying to get out the window. He turned on the light, and poof - he was gone.
I made him search the place before I would even consider staying another second. I asked my boyfriend what he saw. He described the same man. He told me that was **** from the school he went to years back. He asked me if I knew him. I said, I didn't know who he was, but we'd crossed paths. He could tell by my face that it might have been one of 'them'. He knew that I would not go to the police, so he tried to take matters into his own hands and did so. Unfortunately (or maybe VERY fortunately) when he was doing his kind service of reporting the fellow, he found out that he'd been in a car accident and died the previous night.
I'm really not sure what all this could mean. Why would he show up there when he's already dead? Was it a taunt? He didn't look menacing at that point, just standing there, arms down at his sides. Moreover, why would my boyfriend see him too? Definitely strange, since there is nothing that can be done now. I just have no answers.
