Mystery Files: The House on Highway 33

Years ago I started a ghost hunting group with a friend of mine, Thea, and we hung around for a few years before finally disbanding. We were doing our thing just before the hit show Ghost Hunters was first aired, and we still do, just not together. We live too far away.

While we had our group we had a website and we tried to put interesting stuff on it. One of our (very small) features was called “Mystery Files.” We were given, by a very credible source, official documents about strange and mysterious stuff. Kind of like the X-Files. Due to security reasons we weren’t allowed to give out our sources name or where the files actually come from, but they were actual official forms, filled out by official people, documenting craziness.

I recently looked up our old website via the Wayback Machine and found those old files. Here is one of them.

Mystery Files: The House on Highway 33

For many years on Highway 33 in Boyle County a lovely old home stood for as far back as anyone can remember. The house was built originally in 1901 and burnt in 1906 and was rebuilt with additions and completed in 1908. The home itself was a beautiful old farmhouse.

In the spring of 2001 this house burnt again to the ground. Now this home sits a good way back from the road, but you still have a good view of it from there. People had always stated that they had seen/heard strange things from that area. Here is what we found while interviewing the local Sherrifs Office.

March 2001 A report of a woman lurking around the home, in old fashioned dress. This was called in by 6 different people from their cell phones. Upon investigation no one was found on the property and there was no evidence of anyone being there for quite a while.

March 2001 Reports of a “smoke” smell coming from the home. Several people called in to say that they smelled smoke and feared something was on fire.

March 2001 Reports of a woman seen on the property in period dress kneeling as if weeping in front of the home. Upon investigation no one was there.

April 2001 More reports of a smoke smell coming from the area of the home. Fire fighters and police were dispatched and they did a thorough investigation of the home and found nothing that could be construed as a fire hazard. No smoke smell was present and no where was there any signs that anything in or around the home had been on fire.

Late April 2001 the house burns to the ground during the night. Several people called in from cell phones to report the fire and also to report a woman in a long dress and bonnet seen wandering in the yard, close to the road crying. Upon investigation for the woman she was not found.

General upkeep was done to the property after the fire.

Sept 2001, reports of a house fire on Highway 33 from a passerby on his cell phone, at the same location of where the house had been before it burnt. Also, another report of a woman wandering near the road wearing a long skirt and a bonnet.

These same reports occur regularly and without variation. The police department gets at least one call a month of the house on fire, and then shortly there after of a woman in a bonnet seen to be wandering near where the house once stood crying.

What’s going on here? Is this woman in period dress an old resident who burned alive in one of the early fires? Or is she just a neighbor to the original owners who didn’t make it in time to save her friends?

Mystery Files: The Intruder

Mystery Files: The Intruder

There was a report filed in 2002 stating that a woman in downtown called in about a prowler in her home. It seems the woman had come home and saw a man standing on her stairs. She dropped the bag she was holding and ran out to a neighbors house to call the police. When the police arrived they searched the house and found no one, nor any sign of forced entry. The woman called and had her locks changed that day.

A few days later she came back home from having lunch, walked in and glanced at the stairs and saw the man standing there. Again she ran from her home to a neighbors and called the police, where again they came and searched her home, and saw no sign of any one and no sign of forced entry.

This happened around three more times over the course of about four weeks.

Upon speaking to the lady one of the deputies asked her to call him the next time she went out, as he would like to enter the home with her. The next day the lady went out to the grocery, called the deputy and he entered the home with her. The deputy immediately noticed the man standing on the staircase and also noticed right away that he could see a fog around the man. As the deputy started up the stairs, all the while telling the man not to move, the man on the stairs vanished.

The woman who owns the home still witnesses the man on the stairs to this day.

Mystery Files: The Ouija Experience

A few years ago a disturbance call was made to a police station about 4 kids in a home who had become violent. This is what happened when the police had arrived.

In June of 2002 one of the local Sheriffs offices was dispatched to a domestic disturbance. When the deputy arrived he was amazed at what he saw. Four young people, two girls, one 15 years old weighing 98 lbs and the other 17 and weighing 122 lbs. The other were two young men, one who was 16 and another 18. Both young men were football players on the local team and weighed about 210 each.

The four young people had gathered at the youngest girls home and was playing with a ouija board. One of the young men stated that they had messed around with it all evening but about an hour after starting to play things started to happen. One of the young men stated that the girls “just went crazy”. It was stated that the girls were telling them that someone was in their head, telling them to kill the boys, to kill them both. Upon hearing this the boys started to go up the stairs but were followed by the girls. Evidently there were harsh words back and forth between the teens with the girls stating over and over for them to run, or they would have to kill them.

The girls mother heard this and came into the room to ask what the problem was, and evidently thats when things started to get bad. The girls were said to be throwing items, cussing, speaking in tongue, threatening to kill everyone in the house. The mother went to the kitchen and called the police. When the deputy arrived he saw the youngest girl holding one of the boys 6 inches off the ground, shaking him, saying over and over that he should have run, and the other girl was chasing the other young man with a knife.

The deputy immediately called for back up and used his pepper spray on both girls. Both girls were tested for drugs and alcohol and were found to be clean of all substances. The youngest girl to this day is in a state hospital and the oldest spent about 8 months on a psych ward. Both young men swore that the girls were speaking in tongue and strange voices. What really happened here? You decide.
