When there's something strange, in your neighborhood, who you gonna call? The police of course! Check out these real stories of police encounters with the paranormal:
So this story goes that a police office (we’ll call him Mark) had just started his second year as an Oregon State Trooper. Mark was dispatched on a call of a “man holding a gun to a woman’s head.”
When Mark and his partner arrived, the woman (we’ll call her Emily) was crying and saying over and over, “He shot me. He shot me.” Leaning down to talk to her, Mark told her, “He didn’t shoot you.” Continuing to talk to her, he determined she had no family and she refused his offer of a ride. The officer asked her if she would be okay alone. Emily said ‘yes,’ so Mark and his partner left.
At the end of their shift, the two officers returned to the station house and told their co-workers what happened. One of the other officers looked up the woman’s name and reported that a young lady by that name had been shot and killed by her husband about six years earlier. There was never an arrest made.
Two years later, Mark was training a new officer when they got another call about a man holding a gun to a woman’s head. They arrived to find Emily outside the house saying, “There. He’s in there.”
Entering the house, they found a man sitting on the ground with his hands in the air. After handcuffing him and running his name, Mark learned the man was the wanted shooter.
“Was it just luck that we should be there when he was there? Or was it a ghost wanting justice for her murder? To this day it still creeps me out to think about it. I hope she’s finally at peace,” Mark said.
The man was sentenced to 20 years in prison and there have been no more calls from that house.
