It is believed that when a person is murdered, their death was unexpected, or they have fears of what crossing over means (fear of being judged for past deeds, for example), their spirit becomes restless and they fail to move on to the other side.
The following locations are haunted by those who met untimely, tragic deaths. At least one of those mentioned may feel guilty for what he did in life or may fear judgement.
Is the Eckerd's on Ferguson Road and Gus Thomasson haunted? Eckerd's is reportedly haunted by a man who's name in life was "Wayne." Wayne was a loader/unloader at the store and worked the late shift. As he made his way home one morning, three men who were intent on robbing him of his money attacked Wayne. As he attempted to defend himself the men brandished a gun, shooting Wayne a total of six times - three times in the chest, three times in the head.
It is believed Wayne haunts the upstairs of Eckerd's where boxed products are stored. Boxes are known to fall for no reason, there are cold spot's, the radio turns on by itself, and the sound of footsteps can be heard going upstairs.
LBJ House near the LBJ Freeway:
Did something sinister happen at the LBJ House? Reports are that a woman and her children were either sacrificed or murdered at the house and there blood was on the walls. Cold spots could be felt, particularly in one area of the home. The house was, unfortunately, demolished a few years ago.
Pleasant Grove Christian Church:
The sound of banging and howling have been heard. There also appears to be a spirit of an adult who is rumored to have murdered at least one child. The adult spirit is said to be angry and appears to want to be left alone. Children have been seen running around before vanishing into thin air.
Like other large cities, Dallas has had its fair share of murders over the years. Some of those victims have stayed behind to haunt those places they lived, worked, and played. They may never accept what has happened to them and will forever roam the earth as an earthbound spirit.
