Real Ghost Stories

Evil Uncle


Since this story will not make sense without explaining what happened before the experiences, then I will start from the beginning. It was some time around June during the year 2003. My family was really screwed up at the time, due to the loss of my cousin during the 2001 World Trade Center incident. Ever since then, my Uncle Jim has been a real drunk. Every night it was the same routine: come home from his girlfriend's house, go to the fridge for a beer, drink the whole 6 pack in 15 minutes, then drive out to the bar. You could say he was depressed, even angry.

I started to worry about him. He passed out a lot and was always complaining of headaches. I remember it was a Wednesday that I went over his house. He was surprisingly way over-the-limit drunk. He stank of Bud Light beer, and his teeth were a bright yellow. I told him that his drinking habits were a little overboard and he should consider going to a rehabilitation center. My Uncle Jim was always a violent person, especially when drunk. He didn't like the word

"rehabilitation." To him, everything can be solved with a can of beer. I should have known better than to say this. The next thing I know, I was hit with a chair and thrown out the front door. He was screaming with rage I could not understand at the time. He screamed at me, "What the hell do you know, huh!?" He then got in his car and drove off. There was nothing I can do to stop him. He was too powerful for me to handle.

It was around 3:00 a.m. When my grandmother woke me up to tell me we had to go to the hospital. It turned out Uncle Jim got into a serious car wreck. By the time we got to the hospital, he was pronounced dead. At the time, I didn't know what to make of it.

About 3 weeks later, I was painting a picture of my girlfriend for her birthday. Cyndy was the most beautiful, sweet girl I have ever met. Still is. I decided to take a break for lunch and went to Subway. When I came back into the canvas room, the whole thing was knocked down and ripped into 3 pieces. I was a huge skeptic, so I thought maybe the wind, but all windows were closed and locked. So I cleaned up and went to work.

Around 10:00 p.m. I came home from work where Cyndy was waiting for me. She was complaining about hearing footsteps and noises upstairs. I grabbed my 20 gauge shotgun and a flashlight and headed upstairs. Nothing was there but a chair. I thought this was weird, so I shut and locked the attic door. I then climbed into bed with Cyndy to get some sleep.

About 3 hours later, I heard what sounded like a screech followed by stomping on the stairs. I ran to see what was going on, and I saw a figure standing in the doorway of my bedroom. It came at me really fast. I felt cold as if ice was poured on my skin. After the cold, I felt a burning sensation on my chest, so I quickly flicked on the lights. It was over just as suddenly as it happened. I lifted up my shirt and with scratch marks "Jim" was traced. I knew then my Uncle Jim came back and wanted to torture me. It was probably because I suggested rehab to him.

After all these years, the experiences never ceased. I've grown quite used to it, and actually don't mind his presence in my home. I am a big believer in the paranormal now, and I am trying to seek others who have had other experiences. Jim never attacked me again, nor Cyndy. He still continues to rip my paintings and sometimes even makes a little snack late at night. Sometimes, he isn't even there at all. Where he goes those periods of time, no one will know.

Thank you for letting me share my story, and I am eager to hear yours.

Tell your Uncle Jim to not rip your paintings. Tell him he needs to be nice.

Thank you all for the advice, and I had a Ghost Investigator crew come in and do some research, yes he is my uncle. I had a priest do a cleansing of the house, and also asked him to send him away. No more occurances have happened since then. But in my childhood, I have had many spirits lurking. I will share them with you inthe mere future. Thanks for the support 😊

yes please be careful cause if you do anything to anoy him in any way like talk about him or something just be werry of what will happen. And if you try and get rid of him hi'll most likely try and stop you so I gess it was wise to let him stay 😳

I'm not going to pretend I know what this thing is that is in your home, but entertaining it and letting it stay is a very bad idea. No one can tell you what to do, but I agree with the other posters-it needs to go. Please be careful and God bless.

As other have mentioned your uncle needs to move on, it isn't right for him to still be doing the same negative things to you in the afterlife! For him to let go of this repressed energy a cleansing ritual just for him can be undertaken, either that or as DragonStorm80 has mentioned the help of a trustworthy clairvoyant/medium may be usefull to make contact with him and persuading him to move on. I wish you all the best! 😊

Thank you for sharing.

I assure you that's not your Uncle Jim. He is gone to where he is supposed to be. This is a demon for sure

sad to know that your uncle still held a grudge after death. God bless you and your girlfriend. You could try asking your uncle's closest relative to ask him to go on because if you ask him (no offence) he may get even more angry and may continue bad assaualt like the marks on your chest. All the best and good luck! ❤

Yes, I also think the best way to handle it is to help your uncle see the light. You don't need a mean spirit here bothering you everyday. If you try to help him, he may fight at first. If you can't do it on your own, you may need someone who knows how to do it to help him to leave. You need to be very strong when you talk to him.

Perhaps talking to your uncle and asking him to not rip up your paintings that may help? I'd suggest asking for a clairvoyant to do a home reading for you and see what happens from there? Sending your uncle on really would be the best for him and for you, and I hope you can find it in yourself to make that happen 😊

keeping him aroumd is not healthy, you need to send him on. Just saying, I have dealt with a couple of cases just like this

Just curious how you can live with something you consider evil, that rips up your paintings and all. If its your uncle who was mean and angry with you before he died and he returned to you doing these things, aren't you scared? You wouldn't want to try to bless your house or try to get him out? I don't mean these questions in a rude way, I just know I wouldn't want him in my house after all that!

Interesting story, enjoyed reading it. Where you stated "He still continues to rip my paintings and sometimes even makes a little snack late at night." What do you mean by snack? A can of beer? What? I'm confused about that part 😕 God bless and stay safe. 😊
