My name is Ricardo and I'm 23. I'm from a small town in Oregon. All my life I have believed in ghosts and paranormal activity. I have experienced a few encounters but none like this.
I live in a duplex apt that's next to an abandoned home. Many times I hear strange noises throughout the night, whether it's ruffling in the closet or footsteps in the kitchen.
One night I was outside smoking a cigarette with my friend Robert and we were talking about breaking into the house and doing EVP's inside. We ended up doing it a few days later and got some weird recordings, a lot of faint whispers and some whistling, but no actual words we could make out. Of course, we were only using headphones to listen, not high tech equipment.
On a Tuesday afternoon 3 days after we did that, I got home from work and my wife was out grocery shopping so I jumped in the shower really quick. About 3 minutes into the shower I heard the front door open and close. My wife came to the bathroom door to ask what I wanted for dinner. I said anything would be ok and she said she'll be in the kitchen if I needed her.
I got out and dressed, went to the kitchen but she wasn't there. She opened the front door and asked if I can help unload. I told her I thought she was done since she said she was starting dinner. She said how can she start if she just got home and what was I talking about? I explained the conversation we had and she was shocked. She said she wasn't even home. Since than more weird things are happening and there is a lot of negativity around the house.
I am not sure why the house next door is abandoned or if it truly is haunted. But from my experience I think it is and now I think the EVP was a bad idea.
