Unreal Ghosts

1 Jun

Wi Haunted HseRecently, we were called to investigate a home where the owner claimed to have ghosts in her basement. Since the house was nearby, we came over to do a preliminary walkthrough prior to any investigation. There the owner told us how she felt very uncomfortable in the basement, even feeling like she couldn’t breathe. Her dog was also unwilling to go down there.

After walking through and visiting the basement, we too felt bad. But it wasn’t until she told us about her previous tenant who had a meth lab down there did we deduce the source of our mutual discomfort. Meth processing leaves a chemical residue that is a toxic contaminant, and under Colorado law must in fact be disclosed to any buyer or tenant. We advised her that she probably did not have ghosts– just meth.

Today I read in the Denver Post about a couple who was arrested for shooting at “ghosts” in their house. Turns out they were under the same influence whenever they reported the alleged intruders to the local authorities.

Goes to show you: if you’re a ghosthunter, beware of contaminants (meth, mold, asbestos, mice droppings, etc.). All hauntings are not real ghosts.

    Eugh, poor woman. I hope she was able to get someone in there to remove the residue, if that’s even possible.

      It is; there are cheap home kits one can buy, but often ineffective if its a serious contamination. Then you have to call in the guys in the hazmat suits to detoxify. Very pricey.

    My limited experience with Meth was unreal as well.   I thought the refrigerator was walking towards me!

      Good thing your experience was limited, Jim! Who needs scary refrigerators?

    Perhaps the ghost of Walter White

      As an example of “the good gone wrong,” this Breaking Bad character would be good to show up in a spinoff about his return as a ghost.

    On a related note, a lot or supernatural activity has been linked to smells of sulfur and what people describe as brimstone. In your investigations, Have you ever come across such foul smell?


    • Paul Hill June 1, 2016 at 9:37 pm #

      The only paranormal smells I have noticed from investigations tended to be sweet, fragrant perfumey types, I assumed from female personas. The fire and brimstone theme of course has other implications, but I can’t say I’ve experienced anything diabolical in years of investigating. BTW, I did visit your blog and was impressed by your post about the Djinn. In looking for a unified theory of the paranormal, an extra-dimensional culture is always a fascinating possibility, perhaps explaining many related phenomena. Asian and African cultures have been at this much longer than we have, and its interesting to note how they have long since melded these kinds of things into their everyday lives. We’re still trying to figure it out.

        I see. I do believe there is a correlation between smells. I have a South Asian background and, as you say, there are different implications for different kinds of smells.

        I’m glad you found the post to be insightful. It is fascinating for sure. The concept has also been accepted by scientific communities abroad, in the Middle East for instance, with many cases that are attributed to, simply put, “the supernatural.”
