Paranormal news can come in various forms, including shadow people, unidentified flying objects and Bigfoot. However, the strangest news has to come from a report published by Oregon Live on Jan. 5, which states that a woman called the cops because a ghost stole her resume.
While there is more to this story, the facts are that Debbie Michelle Zamacona called the police because a ghost stole her resume, which was valued at $5,000. She also said her paperwork detailing her criminal history, a notice of her terminated parole and a blouse were missing.
The 40-year-old told deputies from the Barrow County Sheriff's Department that the thief was one of two ghosts. She explained that the spirit of her deceased mother visits her often and "black spirits" tend to follow her sometimes. Debbie Michelle Zamacona says it was a black spirit that took her $5,000 resume.
For the police report, deputies are required to put down what the value of a stolen item is. When asked this question, she said she did not know because she was not good at math. After some more back and forth, the deputy finally explained to her that the value of the resume was like asking her what the value of her television set was. She responded that she did not know what she would sell the television set for because she did not like to watch it.
While at first glance, this seemed like a funny story, there were details missing. Further research led to The Huffington Post, which explained more.
It turns out that Debbie Michelle Zamacona suffers from bipolar disorder.
Her husband, who declined to give his name, could not remember her owning a blouse with the description she gave. He also could not find a copy of a resume on their computer. Some news outlets have poked fun at the woman without informing readers of the details, including OregonLive.
Many individuals with bipolar have psychotic episodes, which include hallucinations and delusions. Hopefully, her husband gets her an appointment with her psychiatrist to help get her stabilized.
