In the year 2013 we lived in a small quiet town of Roselle a town 25 miles outside of Chicago. At first when we moved in, we loved it. It was almost like a new chapter in our lives. Not long after we moved in things started to change. I was sitting in my dining room eating dinner, it was about 8:30 at night. As I'm sitting there I here a sudden bang on the patio door. I jerked my head up to see if anything was out there, I saw nothing. The next morning I asked my Mom about it, she told me not to worry about it.
I really just shrugged it off. A couple days went by with no activity, until one night. As I was closing the garage door I heard something slam, it sounded like it came from the 3rd floor. I quickly ran passed the foyer and I ran up the stairs and what I saw was unbelievable. The hall bathroom door was closed. I knew for a fact that door was opened because I left it open and nobody was home at the time.
No window was open either so how could have that door closed on its own? It still baffles me today.
Now the final occurrence, I leave the house with all the windows close. I come back approximately two hours later and when I walked through the door all the windows on the 1st floor were wide open!
How could that be? Nobody was home, all the doors were locked and secured so nobody could have broken in. The 3rd strike was what broke the camel's back. I took it upon myself to do some research on my home. I do know that Roselle in itself is a very old historic town.
I went online to do some research and I found some quite disturbing information. The land that my house sat on used to be a meat factory in the 50s and 60s I believe. There were a couple deaths at the meat factory and I connected the pieces with what odd occurrences I saw and heard.
I said to myself my house has got to be haunted. When I gathered all the research and showed it to my Mom. She could not believe someone died on the property. Not soon after we found out why these occurrences were happening, we decided to sell the house and move elsewhere. That was our signal to leave and to never comeback. I have been occasionally checking the homes real estate status, the home has not sold and is still up for sale.
No one has lived there since we left 5 years ago. Since then no further paranormal activity has occurred. At my new residence nothing out of the ordinary has happened. I wish that house wouldn't exist. It's just not a good place to be. I wish I never stepped foot in that house. At this time I live 30 miles from my former home, I don't plan on coming back to the area anytime soon.
