This is a true event that occurred when I was nine. I live in a small town in Virginia. About seven years ago we moved into a house that has a large backyard with a large log cabin behind it. The people that live in the cabin are friendly people and have never done anything rude to us.
One day I was walking in the backyard with a large club I had made. I looked over to my neighbors long gravel driveway. All of a sudden a dark figure came into my vision. It had dark brown clothes on and a straw hat. It walked with its head down like it was looking at its feet. It walked a couple meters and then vanished. What really scared me was that the builder of the house of our neighbors was a violent man who hung himself about 1 year after he built the house. So I ran in the house regardless of the club I held in my hands.
I have also had many other occurrences in my house, a few of which I will include in this story.
One day I was sitting in my living room, reading a book. All of a sudden the radio turned on to a station I had never heard of. So I walked into the kitchen and turned it off. When I was walking back, I saw a black figure (Much like the one in the previous story) at the end of my hallway. I ran out of the house and never saw the figure again.
Please comment on what you think this figure may have been.
