I lived in the oldest house on Brady Lane in Urbana. It's a two-bedroom farmstyle house with a large backyard and full sized basement. I personally heard a woman calling out ''hello'' on at two different occasions. My roommate's cats would get locked in the basement, and we would hear rustling footsteps and movement throughout the house at night. Shadow figures were also seen in the backyard.|

I moved to Urbana in 1987 into a very large old Victorian house that had been turned into apartments and rooms. It was located in the 500 block of west elm St. When I first moved in I rented a room on the upper floor and shared the kitchen and bath with a friend who also had a room up there.
In the hall there was a door to an attic that was padlocked from the outside. The first thing I noticed was that it sounded like someone was messing around up there but I could see the padlock. I was laying in bed one night and thought I was awake but I was being held to the bed by an unseen force and couldn't move.|
The covers were being shoved in my mouth and I was struggling to breathe. My friend down the hall had heard the ''attic'' sounds too. Around the same time this guy had showed up at my door white as a sheet! I had him come in and when he started telling me what had just happened to him I was totally freaked out! There was a front entryway to this house that was enclosed except for an archway door.
The door into the building was a very heavy oak door with about 7 locks on it of which no one who lived in the building had a key. Our mailboxes were in there. He said he had been walking east about a half a block behind a fellow who was wearing a black hat and trench coat along elm St.
