SENT IN BY: Al Cobb
LOCATION: Savannah, Georgia, USA
DATE OF INCIDENT: September 1998.
My family and I have had what I feel is the ultimate experience of
a lifetime with poltergiests in our home in Savannah, Georgia. Our story
began in September 1998 when I purchased an antique oak bed as a Christmas
present for my fifteen year old son, Jason; and he soon discovered that
something was breathing down his neck everytime he laid down to sleep . He
also had the strong impression that he was being watched. It wasn't long
after that he actually felt something pressing down on the mattress behind
him! This eerie scene was followed by toys that kept being pulled out of the
closet and laid out upon his bed when he was out of his room. Soon pictures
of his deceased grandparents, that were located on both sides of his bed, would
not stay upright no matter how many times he would straighten them out.
brought this first to his mother's attention, and they would straighten the
pictures out and leave the room, shutting the door behind them for only a
moment and then returning to find the photographs face down or switched from
one side to the other! I was told by Lila and Jason that I should come
downstairs and monitor their experiment with them. Lo and behold, the same
thing happened over and over!
I felt a strong impulse to ask this spirit if
his name might be "Casper", and was he a little six year old boy playing with
toys in my fifteen year old son's room. I left out a sheet of paper and a pen
for him to answer me. We all walked out of Jason's room and quietly closed
the door behind us. In a moment we returned to find the sheet written on in
an eerie childlike stick writting, "Danny 7". I felt a chill in the room and
a stronger chill running down my back! We looked at each other in total
amazement at the written sheet of paper on a storage box at the foot of
The "Danny and the Haunted Bed" story will be on a new series of
paranormal stories called "Really Scary Stories" on Fox Family Network in the
fall. We had major paranormal investigators visit our home twice and declare
our home inhabited by multiple intelligent poltergiests coupled with PK. Dr.
William Roll, who headed Duke University Parapsychology Deptartment and is now at
West Georgia University, and Dr. Andrew Nichols of City College in
Gainesville, Florida, were the principal investigators. They have both been on
recent "48 Hours" and "Sightings" programs. I have written a book I hope to
have published as soon as I can land an agent and I am sure it will sell
very well once the word is out. I have many more stories that were documented
by my family and myself about intelligent poltergeists.
