TribLIVE shared a bizarre report Wednesday (h/t Coast) regarding a strange 911 call, in which a paranormal investigator claimed he’d heard a female voice shouting inside Evergreen Cemetery, located in Springhill Township, Pennsylvania.
During the call, the witness said he could hear the voice screaming, shouting “Help! Help! I’m buried alive!” It emanated, or so he claimed, from within a pile of dirt.
However, contrary to what you may think, the pile of dirt was not part of a freshly dug grave, but was rather located “inside a shed at the cemetery,” according to dispatchers.
Trooper Johnathan M. Mosier later arrived at the cemetery to investigate, but not before the witness took matters into his own hands. He retrieved a shovel, then began digging around the shed, in what I assume was an attempt to locate the source of the disembodied voice.
He never found it. Further investigation turned up no signs of anyone in distress, and that’s apparently where the story ends. According to TribLIVE, police told them “no other information was available.”
So I guess that’s that.
While the report doesn’t give us a whole lot to go on, it does raise quite a few questions. I wonder about the claim that this individual is a “ghost hunter.” Did he truly hear screaming, or was it just some kind of hallucination? Or, perhaps, it was some strange prank.
Then again, cemeteries are known to be hotspots for all sorts of paranormal activity, from storied ghost legends to even unexplained sightings of figures that just don’t seem very human. And yet, you’d expect the anomalies to happen around the graves themselves, and not out back by a shed.
Well, ghosts will do what they do. I won’t question their motives.
