It all started in 1982, when my aunt's house was getting a new foundation in the basement. When the men were working in the basement they found some human bones that they figured belong to a male. They found a pipe right next to the bones the men took the bones to a lab so that they can inspect them. About a year or two after that the bones were sent to a museum. She thought that was it, but one night when she was sleeping, something woke her up. She sat up on her bed and listened. She heard a loud "BANG", she went into the kitchen to see what it was. There was nothing there. When she stopped walking, she could hear someone walking up and down the stairs in the basement.

One summer my aunt and uncle came down to visit. When they were just going to bed they heard someone trying to get up the basement stairs, but the door was locked from the outside. They were really scared.

In the winter, my aunt and her friend were playing cards at around 3 o'clock in the morning. They heard someone trying to break into the side door. They went outside to see who it was, they didn't see anything, not even any foot prints in the snow.

Some people say that the spirit of the male, that the bones belonged to, is trying to get back into the house where he was at peace in the basement. For the past few years no one has heard anything.
