Reader Submission: Haunted Location - Lincoln, CA

Hi Lon, here is another pic for you. This one was taken by use of a Full Spectrum Camera. The house this was taken in was my father in law's former residence. He died 2 years ago and it has been sitting there empty ever since. His house is in Lincoln, California. The picture was taken about a year and a half ago. When he was ill and prior to dying, my wife took care of him. While in the house she would hear voices of people talking. The voices were muffled and she could not make out what they were saying. Although her father didnt believe in ghosts he told her there was something very wrong with the house and he heard voices also.

So after his death we began periodically checking on the house. While there we would perform EVP sessions. At times it was fairly quiet, at other times it sounded like a party going on with multiple spirits. We isolated what we thought were perhaps 3-4 females and maybe 5 male voices. One of the females spoke German. It is not an old house as it was originally built in 2005.

I attempted to enlarge and change the spectrum of the image in order to enchance some detail...Lon

One of the male voices was what I would call demonic. It was very profane and at one time promised to kill us both. After that my wife refused to enter the house and I have personally reduced my visits there.

We ordered a 10 megapixels Full Spectrum Camera and decided its maiden voyage would be in this house. I talked my wife into going in on this one and as we entered I held up the camera and verbally warned the spirits there that I had a device in my hands that would allow me to see them. I repeated the warning as I snapped random pictures. I walked toward the rear of the house where the master bedroom was snapping pics along the way. I entered the master bedroom and turned to my right. Directly in front of me was the master bedrooms bathroom. I snapped a few pictures of the bathroom.

In the first picture you will see the bathroom without magnification. On the right is a tall pillar that is somewhat lighted. About halfway down you will see what I call "the critter" peeking out. The critter is actually inside the closet. The closet has mirrored sliding doors and the the right sliding door has been moved to the left revealing the inside of the empty closet. He or "it" is peering out of it at me.

The next picture is a close up of the thing in the closet. As you can see his face is skeleton like. He appears to have hair locks on the top of his head. You can clearly see his eyes, nose and mouth. Above his right eye and in his forehead is what appears to be a hole. Is this how he died??

I find it amusing that this "thing" apparently ran from us and attempted to hide at the rear end of the house and in the closet! I have done a few more EVP sessions there but have not gotten our little Demon on recording. So who knows, maybe he was frightened out of his wits and took up residency next door. Somewhat amusing to see that something scares them also.

NOTE: I contacted Dan and mentioned that I didn't sense that this was an evil entity...though it is what I call a 'trickster'. These spirits are earthbound and have a tendency to lash out out the living if provoked. Unless he wanted to move the entity along, it's best to ignore it. Most earthbound spirits will take on the personality that they demonstrated in life. If the house does indeed harbor several energies then it may be best to move them along. I'm not positive what Dan captured in the image...I'll leave that to the readers to decide. Lon
