My Daddy's Death And The Hooded Figure


It was 1990 and I was living in a trailer. My parents were divorced and I was in the room where I could watch TV and do my homework at the same time. I was 17 that the time.

It was evening after supper. I was feeling something was not right but couldn't put my finger on what. I was feeling something like tapping on my right shoulder. I looked to my right and all I could see was the bed and window but nothing else was there so I just went back to my business.

Suddenly, I heard my mom calling me and I looked to my left. She looked at me and said "come in the living area with me".

I said "ok" but I noticed her face was red like she had been crying... Something was wrong I thought so I went and followed her and I saw my uncle sitting across from me and she looked at me and gave me the bad news that daddy had died.

I got up quickly and began crying. I was angry. I found out he had a heart attack although he was very young.

One year later 1991 when I was 18, I lived in my own trailer next to mom's trailer. I was ready for bed and it was dark when I noticed that by my bed near my window, there was a dark figure. It had a robe on and a hood over the head-I don't know what, it just kind of gave me the chills and I covered myself until I fell asleep. I did try to tell mom but, like all parents, she didn't believe in these things.

I know I had a hard time believing what I had seen or felt but I am getting used to it.

Hi dreamergal, maybe the hooded figure was there to tell you something. I had a similar experience but not with a hooded figure. I will post that one when the time is right, we can compare notes. Usually when they don't seem or feel friendly, they aint! So I get a bad vibe from the specter that you saw. Hmmm

This summer that night it was hurricane gustv and it really hot I sleep in mom's bedroom while she sleep in the other room so I can cool off at night cause no lights and ac and I did see the hooded figure again. Again Thank you very much and blessed.

I am so sorry you lost your Father!, I think the reason the black hooded figure showed itself to you, was your vulnerability. One year after you Father passed away, this black hooded entity showed itself. I think you were being sized up. They say that one year to eighteen months after you lose someone, you are at a point in the grieving process, that makes you vulnerable to otherworldly attacks. I think you are o.k., as you haven't said you have seen it since... You must a be a very strong Soul...Blessings, Ghostseer

That is spooky. It's weird how people see things and they get all confused. I hope you don't see that thing again.

Ellyemo, THanks for comment and No He don't wear robe and he died in 1990 but that wasn't him that hooded figure I can feel creepy this this is that start in 1991 now I saw at the night in mom's bedroom cause it was hot the window open cause of hurricane gustav with no lights/A.C. I was like No it back. Mom let me sleep in her bed to cooling off in window cause I can't sleep in my bed to have a window open there cause my stepdad smoke and it will through inside my bedroom window if I let it open, so My friend just died in june also so I guess it made be a death things.

This story is freaky but kind of sad, I'm very sorry about your dad: (I bet that was your dad you saw! Did he have a robe he loved? Or maybe a dressing gown?


Elly ❤

I am sorry that you did not get the support you needed at that point in time. Not "all" parents don't believe in these things. This is one Parent/Grandparent who COULD not agree with that statement.
There are descriptions of shadow people all over the INTERNET. It almost sounds to me like this was one of those beings. There is speculation that the ghost in question simply does not have enough energy to materialize, and therefore is seen in the form of a shadow.
There are many theories, much like in all other ghostly forms, as to why they seem to only be seen as shadows, but that seems to be the most prominent one. If this had happened to me, I would search the Internet to see if I could find a "match" in some of the photographs that are available. At least that way, I could say "Yes, THIS is what I saw..."
Thank you.

Hello Dreamergal72,

I was reading your story and It is quite interesting. I do have one question. When you saw the Hooded figure, was 'it' holding a rope for hangings? Because I watched A Haunting one time, and a woman said she had that experience. Only with a rope. If you could respond, that would be Great. Good luck and god bless.
