I'm in my mid fifties now. When I was fifteen years old, my mother and I lived in Thomasville, Georgia for a few months. My mother worked downtown at a bar and grill as a grill cook. The owner's name was Jake, and his wife's name was Carla. He was completely scarred all over from a plane crash. He kind of terrified me by his appearance, but he was a nice person. My mother rented a big two-story house dirt cheap, and it was walking distance to her job downtown. We lived near the old oak tree that was hundreds of years old. We lived through pure terror in that house.
First we heard footsteps all night long upstairs and coming down the stairs. We would open the bedroom door, and we both stepped in to look at the stairs during footsteps. Nothing was there that we could see. We walked home one night down the sidewalk, and we saw the porch swing swinging wildly back and forth. There was no wind blowing. Some nights we were so scared. We would stay on the porch swinging all night because the noises inside of our rental house were out of control. We are not scaredy cat-type women or the nervous type, but this house was evil and terrifying.
Our screens were being cut also which scared us. The screens were fine when we first moved in, and we began noticing screens cut even as with a sharp knife. Luckily, we locked our windows. I also noticed all our neighbors were super unfriendly and avoided any contact with my mother and me. That was strange in itself. Eventually I found out through my own research at the Thomas County Library through old newspapers on microfilm. I went to the basement of library to research.
A gruesome unsolved murder had happened in that house about 1970. I found photos of the house we lived in in old newspaper articles about the murder. It was 1977 when we lived in the same house. An elderly woman was murdered and tortured horribly before her murder. I won't go into details, but it was horrible and gruesome. They did pick up a man from the mental institution and police claimed he killed her. I don't believe for one second he did it. I read the details, and nobody believed he killed her.
One of the things happening to this poor murdered lady was cut screens in the months before her murder. She had reported being stalked and harassed by something she never did see. Several of the things my mother and I had been terrified by. We moved immediately, and to this day I'm convinced she (her spirit) was trying to scare us out of that evil house before her murderer murdered us. He seemed to enjoy terrifying his victim for months before he murdered her. I believe my mother and I were next. I do not remember the address, but I remember what the house looked like clearly.
It is located just a few blocks from downtown Thomasville and a block or two from the ancient oak tree. I don't even know if it's still there. I hated that house as far as our horrific experiences there. The house was an old Victorian and so pretty but so evil. I believe her killer was alive, and we were next.
