In 2001, we moved into a home in Roy, Utah, near Roy Jr. High School. The house was built around 1955, but we hadn't experienced anything for awhile. About a year or so later, my 4 year old son started talking about this little boy named Sam, that came over to our house and played with him. I just thought he had an imaginary friend. He also talked about another little boy, who was a bully. He didn't like TJ playing with Sam. It wasn't until my two older boys and I experienced something's, which made us wonder if TJ really had an imaginary friend, or if it was something else. TJ also recently told me that he thought Sam died in a car accident down the street, and that he lived across the street from us.
When our oldest son was old enough to babysit, we left him and our two other boys home alone with him. My husband and I were at the movies with some friends, when we got a frantic phone call from our son. He said that they were in the basement, and they heard the garage door open and heard what sounded like footsteps and a woman and man talking. Thinking we had come home early, he called out to us. Then the talking stopped, and they were really freaked out!
Then one morning, my middle son walked downstairs and glanced over, and saw a little boy (about TJ's size), staring at the TV. He just thought it was TJ, until he remembered that TJ was still asleep in bed and the boy he saw was missing part of his ear. When he looked again, the little boy (missing part of his ear) was gone. So he went upstairs to make sure TJ was still asleep, and he was still asleep.
Sometimes when TJ couldn't sleep, he would come into our room in the middle of the night and sleep on the floor. Well, one night I woke up and saw what I thought was TJ standing in the doorway. I said to him, "TJ, go get your pillow and blankets and come sleep on the floor." He ran off towards his bedroom. I laid there for a couple minutes, but TJ never showed up. I went into his room, and he was fast asleep. I don't know if I saw this little boy ghost, or if TJ was sleepwalking. But TJ told me that sometimes the little boy would go into his room at night and in the morning.
Then one day, I was outside getting my dog, when I heard an adult male voice whisper, "Hey!" into my ear. Thinking it was either my husband or a neighbor, I looked around, but no one was there.
I found out recently from a friend, that a house he lived in near our old house also had a ghost. I experienced some things around the neighborhood as well, and wonder if something happened there and it is haunted.
The JR. High that is nearby is also supposedly haunted, and also a few schools around the area. I do know that where our old house and the surrounding homes were built used to be an orchard.
How do I research this at the library? What kinds of things do I ask for from the Librarian to do my research? I don't want people to think I am crazy, but I also want to know if there is a logical explanation.
