Rockford Scanner™: 5 Local Paranormal Experiences, From Fans




 

As you know we asked to hear your paranormal experiences.
Here are a couple of stories that were sent to us.
Send us you paranormal experiences, RockfordScanner@Gmail.com 


# 1 Years and years ago my father lived in an apartment building at the corner of Maple and Wesley Lane. Well one day I was with my older brother and we went into the basement area.

I never liked going down there cuz I always got a creepy vibe down there. There were storage units and washer and dryers down there. We were simply getting something from the storage unit we had.

Well while we were in there I seen a shadow figure walk past us. I know for a fact my brother seen it too. I ran out of there as fast as I could. My brother stayed though. That was the only time I ever experienced that.

Another one I had was over at my Grandma’s house. She lives on Wilshire blvd. I was very very young so it’s very vague. I was in her living room and I looked down in the basement and I seen a man down there staring at me. He stared for a moment and walked away.

Come to find out it was my Grandma’s brother who passed away before I was born. I never had an uneasy feeling with him. Perhaps because he is family.

 


# 2  1100 block of 23rd Street, Rockford
56 years ago and up to the present
I was born when my parents lived there, stayed till I was 7. I always saw dancing shadows on the ceilings and was scared to death to go in the basement, felt like someone was watching me and following me up the stairs. There was a box down there that I stared at, afraid to open. We moved and I never had that happen again.

Fast forward to about 5-6 years ago, I was working at a library and issuing a library card to a gentleman who now lives there. I told him I once lived there, and he said, “So you already know it’s haunted?” I told him that I did always think so, yes. He said that the cabinet doors open and shut randomly, things get moved and tossed off the counter, doors close for no reason, he hears footsteps, sees shadows. I visited my parents and told them about this conversation, and they just looked at each other with “that look” and said, “Well….about that….” and proceeded to tell me their experiences, which were exactly the same as his.

My parents had my bedroom when they moved in, didn’t feel comfortable, so they built an addition for themselves and put me in that room after I was born. I said, “So you put the BABY in the haunted room?!?!?!” They laughed and said they thought I wouldn’t notice. Oh I noticed, all right


 #3  I have a story relating to a paranormal encounter. Although I’m still not sure to this day what I really experience this will still be a good read. This happened at Twin sisters park, near east behind the mini strip mall. I was in high school at the time, so this was around 2015 sometime in September before the cold weather set in for fall.

I came to school really early and the doors were still locked and I decided to kill some time by wondering the Forest part of the park that connected to the hills itself. As I was wondering around listening to music and just genuinely enjoying my morning.

I heard what sounded like an animal being hurt almost a squealing nose of some sort, I just assume maybe it was raccoons or cats fighting but the closer I got to the sound the further and scarier it began to get. I’m a very curious person, and I do get scared but for some reason that morning I sorta just said “eh let’s see some ghost” of course that was just me trying to lighten the situation with a joke because I was pretty scared. I got to the part where the tree hangs down very low, and you could pretty much sit on it as a chair. Mind you this was around 6 am so not many people would be there at all.

I stood there to investigate the sound and it kept getting closer to me and by this point it sounded like a voice echoing my name which sent goosebumps down my neck. I decided to turn around because it was getting to real for me by that point, as I’m fast walking making my way out in the distance but still close to me I could hear branches being broken and moved while my name was still being echoed but in a very distorted male voice. I pretty much said screw this and booked it out of there.

To this day I still wonder what the hell was going on I saw nobody at all and people are easy to spot through there it’s not a thick forest. But who knows maybe someone was playing a prank of some sort but to me it was very nerve wrecking experience.

I’ve only told close friends about this story because I’m really not sure what it was. But I do believe in ghost and the paranormal. Thats my experience and I hope it was an interesting one. My name is J. and that’s my story.


#4 We saw a huge ufo at night a couple years back in machesney right past 173 it was the biggest thing ive ever seen in the sky before it got bigger and bigger than just disappeared we never figure out what it was and we tried to.


#5 Back in the mid 70’s my mom and I were coming down Charles at Mulford and an object came down with 2 bright lights just above tree line. There was no sound. I was scared and screaming and jumped in the back seat floor yelling why are you stopping. ( my mom said a stop sign). Got home in 1 min and watched it go up and was gone fast. We reported it.
