Police officers dispatched for paranormal calls share their stories

A popular thread on Reddit is getting a lot of traffic this month. Someone posted a question titled "Police officers of Reddit, have you ever been called to a home for a paranormal reason?" The thread has numerous witness accounts of the paranormal from cops who shared their stories.

"I had a call to a residence for a mental evaluation or a "5150." Anyways, I get there and speak to a 50-something-year-old woman, who states her 20-something-year-old son is under the influence of an unknown drug, and kept repeating that he can't go in his bedroom because there was an old man hanging in his room. She stated she was too scared to go in his room and investigate it for herself, because he constantly brings over friends that are drug addicts, and is unsure if his claims were true or not," one former police officer said. "I then go speak to the son, who is clearly under the influence of a stimulate. He goes on to tell me that he was told by a spirit to not enter the bedroom, because her father, dressed in his military Class A uniform was hanging in his bedroom. I check the room out and of course there was no body hanging in the room. As I'm in the middle of explaining to the mother that there was no body in the bedroom, a veteran officer arrives on scene to assist me. He pulls me aside and stated earlier in his career he responded to this residence, and that same bedroom, he had to investigate a suicide by hanging of an older male subject. He didn't remember all the details, so I looked it up in our report management system in my patrol car and sure enough the officer was correct. The subject who died was a WWII veteran and had dressed in his military uniform and hung himself," he continued.

On June 2, 2012, a woman in North Royalton, Ohio called police and reported that three or four women, between the ages of 25 through 30 had been coming to her house to clean. According to the homeowner, the cleaning women would come and go as they pleased, and when she tried to talk to or touch one of them, they would simply disappear.

"I was once called to an apartment where the lady was reporting that a ghost kept bothering her and throwing her things out of the window. She had mental health issues and was clearly distressed. My colleague and I "arrested" the ghost and took it away. She was grateful and we had no more calls," one police officer said.
