This isn't my personal experience. It's one from my 12 year old son. Before I share it, I'd like you all to know that this experience took place before McKinley Park, but after my friend's passing. I'm not sure if any of my experiences are directly involved with my son's story.
One night about 10pm, my son decided to take a shower. My other children were in bed asleep for there was school the following morning. Yes, I was a little upset that my son wanted to shower so late, but that's beside the point.
My husband was at work (he works the evening shift), and I was sitting at the dining room table with my husband's laptop. About 20 minutes later, my son came running out of the bathroom, with a goofy grin on his face. He ran past me into the living room. Peeked into his bedroom, and then ran up to me, still with a silly grin on his face. I just kind of gave him this funny look like "what are you grinning about. So I asked him, "what?" He still had this grin, and asked me where dad was. At this point, I assumed he had lost his mind because he knew dad didn't get off work until 11pm, and it was only about 10:30pm. So I told him "Um, he's still at work". My son looked at me as if I was lying. I then said, "You know daddy doesn't get off until 11 it's only 10:30". I guess he noticed the time, and by my facial expression, that I wasn't lying. So he said," but I heard him cough".
Now my husband does have a smoker's cough, but he wasn't home from work yet. I told him again, "I swear boo dad's not home yet". He stood there for a few seconds, looking confused, but went to bed anyway.
When my husband did come home from work, I told him what had happened, and he just kind of laughed. Which I probably would've done as well. My son was a little freaked out about it, but doesn't dwell on it. In fact, he reminded me of this story a few days ago, but I couldn't post it until now. I know.
Supposedly, the previous male owner passed away in one of the bedrooms, but not sure which one. I didn't hear this cough, only my son did. It only occurred that night. No one was outside...
My question is did he really hear a cough like he claims, or is my husband's cough embedded in his head?
Any comments, and/or theories are greatly appreciated.
