Keep in mind this is just the story that started most of the paranormal experiences that My friend and I have experienced. This is far from all of what has happened, but this is where it gets scary for us.
So, this story starts back in 2015. Before then I have had a few paranormal experiences, some shadows/voices, but nothing that really shook me up. However there was one night I was driving with my friend that everything changed. Keep in mind, we were about 17/18 at the time and are avid believers in the paranormal, but were fairly realistic with what caused certain events.
This was about 10 at night, and we live in a small town near Spokane, WA. All there was to do to get out of the house in all reality was drive around. We used to go to cemeteries frequently, and would often go to the local small town one. The town has 2, there is an old one dating back to the 1700's and is filled with unmarked graves and an unmarked mass grave. The newer one claims to not have any unidentified graves, but everyone knows that is false.
Again, we were driving around at 10 at night, we were desperate to get out of the house and had a full tank of gas and a 4 wheel drive vehicle. During the entire drive, everything was like normal, nothing out of the ordinary had happened. But, when we were passing the cemetery, we had heard a blood curdling scream, almost like someone was getting murdered. Keep in mind that there was no one out there and no animals. There is no one we could have even remotely even hit. There was even a moment where we had lost complete control of our vehicle. Thankfully we weren't going very fast and only lasted a moment.
We kept driving (we sure as hell weren't going to stop) and after that we noticed a thick fog had developed and seemed to follow us around. At this time it was about midnight and we had an overwhelming feeling of dread following us around. We had found that if we stayed in the part of town with people/cameras that the fog wouldn't follow all the way, but it still lingered nearby. We had a full tank of gas like mentioned earlier, so we literally stayed in the vehicle until the fog cleared up. At the stroke of 3 a.m. The fog literally dissolved, but at this point we were still too shaken up to go home. At 5 am we had finally calmed down just enough to go home. We lived 2 blocks from each other, so I dropped her off first, then while keeping each other on the phone I went home. At both houses we had parents/siblings and I had my boyfriend there, so thankfully we weren't alone. However we were still so anxious from what happened we couldn't go to sleep immediately.
My brother and his friend practice Wicca, and happen to know more than they probably should about demons and what not. (I feel like they're playing with fire but that's on them) but we were talking to them about it. And they think we heard a death echo and there may had been bad spirits or entities following us.
Now is the scariest/creepiest part of the whole ordeal. I was driving home from school. My Friend worked part time for the town and her job was maintenance for the cemetery such as mowing/weeding/flowers/watering and just overall care. I wanted to stop by and say hi for a few since it was on my way home. I was driving by and saw her, however I got this overwhelming feeling of dread and just overall felt like I needed to get out of there. Now. So I kept driving, but I still wanted to say hi so I called her. I said "hey sorry I just passed you at the cemetery but thought we could meet in a few for lunch or something". She asked me what I was talking about and I told her I had told her that I drove by the cemetery, but didn't tell her about the feeling I had. She said "Boo, I haven't been there for a bit, at least 10 minutes. I'm home now and have been making lunch". Now I'm confused because I legit saw her, so I immediately drove to her and saw her pickup and went up inside (didn't have that feeling) and there she was. In the same attire that I had just seen "her" wearing at the cemetery. She was obviously shook up, but she still had to work out there.
This ended up happening a couple more times too when I would drive by. She even told me herself that she saw herself there, however when she did it appeared she was covered in blood. She was driving up to work that day, but immediately turned around. After that she refused to go back without a group of people. There was one instance where she was working and had an overwhelming sense of dread. She abandoned the mower and left. Shortly after I had drove by (again) and saw what looked like her. We again talked to my brother and his friend about this, and they didn't have too much insight. They had a few thoughts about what it was, but nothing definitive.
We have had multiple experiences since then with not just those feelings we had, but with things we have seen. I don't purposely go out there anymore and in the 5 years since then I haven't seen that apparition anymore. However, we are looking for answers for some of what has happened or if anyone else had experienced anything like that. Currently we are 23/24 and there's only a few people we can talk to about this. So any insight, advice or knowledge would be greatly appreciated.
There are a few issues with the way this experience has devolved since is original posting. With regard to the wild life, I have family that lives in and around the same region. They have all kinds of wildlife just like Lealeigh and Ladyglow pointed out - I get pictures almost weekly in my email of what's roaming through their back yard this time. Sometimes too, an animal winds up in a place it doesn't belong - god knows, I live in urban south eastern Virginia and we get coyotes and foxes too! Even a rabbit can scream bloody murder if it's threatened enough... Or being eaten by a predator - something as mundane as a stray cat or owl could manage that. I've been around big loud trucks before too - and, yes, you could hear those animal noises over their racket.
As for the fog, none of the meteorological conditions you mentioned really have anything to do with fog formation. It's to do with air humidity and rapid relative temperature change. It can behave quite oddly all on its own.
I think the others have asked some very relevant questions regarding the doppelgänger (s), the curious leniency of "easyforcheez2's" employer, the unusual degree of secrecy around an otherwise well tended and fully staffed cemetery etc. No one has said "I don't believe it" - they are asking probing questions in order to help inform an explanation for what occurred. However, you seem to feel that you have already exhausted all logical explanations - indicating that you have basically made up your mind about what you believe went on that night and unless anyone's explanation is concurrent with your own, it is disregarded.
