Okay. First off: even after filming our paranormal webseries for 3 years now, I still remain a skeptic. Or rather, I like to remain a skeptic.
HOWEVER... there are a few places that genuinely creep me out.
Glendale Cemetery in Okemos, Michigan was the first place to do so.
In 2018, we visited the cemetery simply to pay our respects to Herman Bergan, a spirit we may have come into contact with during a previous investigation. We didn't know the cemetery was haunted, and we weren't there with the intentions of investigating.
But after an hour or so of searching for his grave, we couldn't find it (likely due to the heavy snow that covered many of the graves). By this time, it was getting dark. And the atmosphere in the cemetery changed. Big time.
We had already done several investigations at this time, many of which were at cemeteries. So it wasn't being in a cemetery at night that creeped us out. Because we were used to that feeling. It didn't bother us.
We heard could have sworn we heard footsteps following us throughout the cemetery, and a fellow investigator swore he saw a shadow moving in front of him.
We left, and came back a month later to film a proper investigation there. It was one of our most memorable experiences. So later that year, I returned again, this time for a special Friday the 13th investigation.
This is when things really got interesting.
Just like our first visit, we heard footsteps following us. And then, we had our spirit box turn on by itself. We're not saying it's paranormal, but we could not debunk the experience. And it's only ever happened one other time in our nearly 100 investigations.
As the sun began to set, a cop showed up. He asked us what we were doing, and in an unexpected move, allowed us to stay in the cemetery after hours... as long as he could close and lock the gate. We just had to re-lock it when we left.
We ended up staying until 3am, on the eve of Friday the 13th. Locked inside one of the few places that creeped me out.
We had a few more strange things happen, including the feeling of being watched, and hearing faint voices around us. The activity culminated with a spirit box voice clearly telling us to "be careful," combined with a powerful feeling of dread.
It was at that point that we left the cemetery, making sure to re-lock the gate behind us.
