Kudos to you....Yes the area is Enumclaw (which narrows down my agency....thank you ! just kidding). If you do more research on it, or are familiar
with the area, you know there is another legend that roams the area. I would have to guess the "evil spirit" moniker most likely refers to that
large, hairy, bi-pedal creature that many report seeing, and has been a part of American Indian Legend here forever. That ties in more with the
Thunder Bird stories and is another entire post altogether.
It still is an interesting piece of this story though. The only acutal tribe remaining in the area is not the one that named the mountain and
surrounding vicinity "enumclaw". I tried to follow up the local legend of the mountain but hit a dead end.
It appears (according to public records anyway) that the land and buildings on it recently passed ownership again via a will. There is no existing
history of the ownership beyond the past 10 years or so. The building code for the house describes a much smaller house then is there now. So there
has been an upgrade, which explains the tools, lumber, etc in the basement.
Someone had asked in an earlier post reply about the kids' activities prior to the incident and if it involved TV. Honestly, I don't know. I would
imagine being kids there was TV, or movies, etc going on at the time but would that explain the incident? Perhaps if they "spooked" themselves, but
that does not explain our dispatcher hearing foot steps, nor does it explain what we saw upon our arrival and the crash in the basement. I can get
past the crash. That could have been anything. But as of today, years past the event, I have never been able to come up with a good explantion of
what I saw. I think the info here about the "shadow men" is as close as I have seen yet. And maybe a Ouija Board. The threads on this site about
those boards are certainly thought provoking.
So someone is probably asking..what about the other two guys? One, the rookie, did not meet some of our stringent training requirements and is no
longer with the department. I have no contact with him. The other is around and I see him often. But we NEVER talk about that day and frankley I
would feel like an idiot walking up to him and saying "let's talk about that apparition." In this job there are somethings that are not done.
Dealing in or talking about something outside of hard reality is one of those things. Hence, my anonymity on this site; I still have a career to
rummage about with.
