Ok, this is so hard to believe. At first I thought this friend of mine had lost her marbles. With that said, let me get into the oddness of the
She lives in an older apartment complex, and has been there the better part of two years. She used to have a roomate (who is also my friend), but for
various reasons including this malevolent being the attic, moved out. There was a man who lived next door, and because of the problems caused by this
being in the attic, asked to be moved to another unit. The landlord says the apartment is haunted. But my friend has actually seen a slender male
figure in a shirt and blue jeans in the attic. But I will get to that.
She was so sure that someone was sneaking into her attic, that she has asked me to case the joint at night from the street outside and see if anyone
was crawling up and in. She knows I have all the digital night viewing equipment en-masse, and really wanted me to do so. I told her I would, but it
is a semi-residential area, and I know someone would surely call th eauthorities if someone was creepily watching a building through view-finders for
hours on end. She agreed.
My friend works all day and is finding when she gets home, whatever is in the attic won't let her sleep. She has considered moving but has signed a
lease, and for how nice the apartment is, she would never find anything like it for the price. She has talked to me about the problem before, knowing
I am a magnet of all things odd, strange, or conspiracy related. When I have looked at the building, there is no way in or out of the building from
the outside to the attic. Well, at least that I am aware of. I found no entrance.
She was convinced it was a human being for quite a long time. In fact the noise of footsteps got so bad that she went over to the neighbors before he
moved to ask if he had heard it. He said he had and it had been bothering him too. He offered that the entrance to the attic was on his side of the
apartment and let her in to go upstairs with his assistance. He told her he had prepared a smoothie a few days before for his health, since he is a
older man in his 70's, had left the room were the entrance was for a moment, heard a ruckus, went back into that room, and the entrance hatch to the
attic was ajar and the paint ripped off, and his smoothie spilled all over the floor. This was just too freaky for him, and he had asked the landlord
to be moved into the only other empty apartment in a building adjacent one over from the first. He was in fear for his life.
When my friend went up into the attic, she saw that the spray-in insulation had been disturbed in such a way that there was a visible path that made
it's way over to her apartment. Sure enough the paint on the entrance hatch had been devastated. The majority of the disturbed insulation was above
her bedroom and bathroom, which made her feel very violated.
When she went into the attic she said it was very uncomforatable, and the heat was practically unbearable. The spray-insulation made it stiffling and
uncomfortable. And, she was unable to see any entraces into the attic. She began to think it was impossible for it to be a person, or at the very
least it was a very disturbed individual.
After the older man moved to the other apartment, the footsteps continued. For quite a while the apartment next door was vacant. The footsteps got
even worse. A couple new people live in the apartment now, but are heavy drinkers and claim they heard some sounds, but aren't freaked out by them.
My friend has had such a hard time sleeping, that she purchased a motion-activated, infrared camera, that is hooked up to a small monitor in her
bedroom. She has cut a square hole about 4 x 4 inches wide to slip the camera up into the attic. Unfortunately she has no recording capabilities on
the monitor/camera. Well, at least not yet. What is very creepy, is after she installed the camera, she saw a very thin male figure in what she
thought looked like a t-shirt and blue jeans walking around in the attic. It doesn't look anything like the new tenants next door.
She has begun to think the "being" upstairs is not a person, but may be paranormal in nature. I have given her the number of a paranormal research
organization here locally that works for free.
I want to help more but don't know what to do.
