Is It Him?


I've always felt a strange feeling in my mother's house, especially in her room and mine. Our rooms are right across the hall from each other and connected by a Jack and Jill bathroom. When I was little, the alarm clock in her room would go off at random times without warning. Also, the television in her room would always turn on and off when I was watching it. One night, the sink tap turned on by itself. That's about all the paranormal activity I've encountered until recently.

About a month ago, I had a really odd dream: my friends and I were sitting in my room, when the doors started opening by themselves. My friends thought I was doing it, even thought I kept telling them that I wasn't. When we went into the den, I noticed that Microsoft Word was open on my computer. Right when I noticed, something began typing. It said its name was Kevin, and that it died in a motorcycle crash and killing a mother and a child in the process. Then I caught a glimpse of him in the dream. He had blood around his mouth and nose, a white t-shirt, and jeans. He kind of looked like Cameron from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, with some moderate differences. He had dark brown hair that was sort of bushy and brushed backwards. I really could depict him well. He also wore a black jacket. I told this dream to my friend, and she said "He sounds like he's from the 50s", which is weird because my house was built in that time period.

Two nights ago, I was trying to fall asleep lying on my bed, when my right arm got cold. Bored, I said "Is there a ghost with me?" right after I said that I heard a knock on my wall. My mom was in the other room. I rolled with it "Are you good? One knock yes, two knocks no." Then I heard a knock. I tried asking some more questions, but got no responses. Do you think it could be Kevin? Or am I overreacting?

That is strange for a library not to have old newspaper articles. Usually they keep them on microfilm. Do you have a town historian? Maybe he or she is in charge of all the past events. Sorry you didn't have any luck at the library. Thanks for the update. 😊

I'm still looking for a place in Atlanta with old news paper articles but I can't find any. I've checked the libraries and there are none.

I'm with Cosmogal926 on this one. Research seems to be the best course of action at this point, BUT...

Even if this entity seems to be "Kevin," it may not be. There's nothing in the "Evil Spirit Code of Conduct" that says these things have to be truthful. Sometimes entities get their jollies by toying with us in a pull-the-wings-off-a-fly kind of way. Once they've gained our trust by convincing us of their benign nature -- or worse, by preying on our desire to help -- they can turn on a dime and wreak havoc in our lives.

My advice: Please be careful. Do your research, but don't get too caught up in what "Kevin" (if he exists) tells you. It's best to "help" him by sending him into the light, where he can exist with other beings who DO understand what he's going through. And if he's not "Kevin," you're better off without him!

And whatever you do -- NO OUIJA BOARD! This site is full of "wish-I-hadn't-done-it" stories about that particular venue. And, as I mentioned above, the entities who frequent Ouija boards are under no obligation to tell the truth. (And what's the point of having a conversation with something that's going to lie to you?)

Just my two cents. Best regards,

The best way to find out would be to do some research. Go to your local library and ask for local news articles from the 1950's. Search for motorcycle crashes and see if anything comes up. Good luck and let us know if you find anything. Thanks for sharing your story.
Take Care 😊
