Evp: A Phone Call From The Dead?


You may or may not be aware of the fact that I do a lot of EVP research. If I don't have a location to investigate, I investigate cemeteries. At least 4 times per week (more or less). On several occasions, I have brought home some ghostly visitors. However, the situation in this video is unique. I have heard of this happening before, but it has never happened to me until now.

On 06-12-2009 at 12:10 AM (midnight), our phone rang. I jumped out of bed to answer the phone. My 15 year old son was still awake and playing X Box with his cousin. His cousin (my nephew) lives several towns away. They were playing together and talking over headsets through X Box Live. I went to get the phone and my son said "don't bother it is XXX" (his cousin). I held the phone for a second then decided to answer to tell him to not call so late. By the time I answered, the incoming call went to voice mail. I did not listen to it, I just went back to bed.

The next day, my wife and I listened to the voice mail. It was NOT my nephew! It sounds like an older man. A creepy EVP type of voice that only says one word. SPOILER ALERT *********

"Hancock". The odd thing is that I live in "Hancock" county. With all of my research, have I attracted someone's attention? Not sure what all of this means, but I will keep you posted if we have more activity!

I personally think that it was a prank call. But, I may be wrong...

I'll admit, my experience thus far with EVP is limited to Ghost Hunters which I realize above all other things it may be is a tv show, but are EVPs usually as clear as that was? I always thought they were caught in static and such.

I think it is plain wrong to ghost hunt cemeteries. You deserve to be haunted hard for that. Also, If I had family members buried in a cemetery somebody was ghost hunting in I'd be pretty upset. That is ghoulish and desecrating.

Just curious: But do you think maybe someone was calling, and was having a conversation with someone else while hanging up not being able to contact you? One person could've said, "Who are you calling?" and the dialer could've said, "Someone/My friend is hancock" and the machine just caught "hancock" as they were hanging up?
Don't get me wrong, I have no disbelief in it at all. But there are possibilities. 😊

A private call doesn't mean its a ghost. Doesn't *67 have you show up as private if dialed first?

I have a cuople things wrong with the ghost theorie:

1.) How would a ghost find your phone numbre?
2.) How would a ghost even get a phone?
Maybe it was a prank caller...?

Dang it, I can't watch the video because I don't have "Adobe Flash Player" or "Javascript" or something! I'm so mad right now...

It's very possible it was a wrong number. Just because the voice said "Handcock" doesn't immediately mean it was a ghost calling you. Now if this happened every night at the same time with the same message, then perhaps there is something.

Sorry, I must have missed that. How about going back to that private call and hitting send to see who answers.

Annie - I took a picture of the phone (in the movie). It said "Private"...

Hmmm...did you check your caller i.d.? Maybe you'll find the number from the call. Thanks for the post. Interesting.

Freaky! 😨 that might have, in fact, been a ghostly phone call from beyond, but I am not sure. Thanks for posting the you tube video! That was nice of you! I REALLY hope you or any of your family members ever get that message again!

❤ Peace out ❤
