“Daddy, there is someone knocking behind my bed.”
I remember waking up to wide eyes right in front of my own. Lindsey had never woken us up before for something like this.
“Honey, you’re just getting used to the new house. It’s ok. Is your nightlight still on?”
“Are you alright to go back to sleep?”
She hugged the pink bunny toy closer to her chest. “Um, I think I need a midnight snack.”
I groaned, looking at the clock. It was closer to morning than midnight. The midnight snack was a concept lost on my daughter. She would proclaim any dessert desired that was not directly following dinner a midnight snack.
Two teens in Versailles called police to report a break in, sources say. The teens, home alone, said that they heard banging on the walls.
“It started every time we started making out” one of the teens told us.
The banging would continue until they stopped and moved away from each other. After checking the house and finding it empty, they decided to ignore it.
“We figured it was the wind or something.”
As they continued to ignore the sounds and entertain themselves, they reported that the television in the living room came on.
“It turned on to some religious channel we don’t even watch and it was so loud that we had to go turn it off.”
“When he left the room, the door slammed shut behind him and then that’s when I called the police.”
Police found no evidence of an intruder and called the resident’s parents after investigating.
North Star native, Celia Clemens, terrified relatives and doctors as she fell into a deep sleep that lasted six days.
Sources tell us that Clemens fell asleep at random, last Monday night during dinner. What followed was several days of uncertainty and fear.
“We thought that this was it, you know? She’s 82. We were so worried.” Daughter Eliza Howard tells us. “She just passed out. She was unresponsive for days”
During her time unconscious, doctors witnessed her gnashing her teeth, crying, and clawing at the bed. “It was like she was having a nightmare.”
A nightmare lasting six days. MRI results show that her brain activity was similar to what someone experiencing a nightmare would have.
When Clemens awoke, she immediately requested to be released. Doctors complied.
“As soon as we got home she told us that she hadn’t been having nightmares. She said she saw how the world would end. She said it started here.”
Family remain hopeful that Clemens will recover fully from this ordeal.
Joe Malinowski, 14, has just found his mummy.
“I was just curious. The house has been empty ever since I lived here,” Joe tells us. “ I wanted to see inside.”
The house in question, a small, two story home now covered in vines, once belonged to Martin Boyd, a retiree of the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
“Nothing else was in there. The furniture was gone and there were some holes in the floors. I kept going and when I went into the kitchen there it was.”
Malinowski says that he came across what he describes as “a mummy” hanging from the ceiling fan.
Forensics say that the conditions inside the house, along with decay aided by insects, created the mummified appearance.
“I remember watching him move out of that house years ago.” Johanna Malinowski, Joe’s mother, tells us. “He had no family. He packed up everything, said he had to get away from here. Told us he was going to Arizona.”
At this time, forensics have identified the body as belonging to Boyd.
As far as anyone knew, he had never returned from Arizona.
