Witness: Ariel Smock
Location: Keewatin, Minnesota
Date of Encounter: 1998-2009
It all started at a house that I was raised in. The house had 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. I always knew there were weird things that went on in the house, but I never believed them. When I was about 6 years old, I used to be afraid to go into my room alone. In my room there was a door that led into an attic. The attic door used to unlock itself and open and close. I would tell my father about it, but he never believed me.
When I was about 15, me and two of my friends were sitting in the living room playing on the computer when we heard what sounded like a knocking on the front door. When we went to find out who was there, no one was, but there were two handprints on the window. We stepped outside but there wasn’t anyone around. Later that night, the kitchen cupboards started slamming. About three days later, me and my friends were once again in the living room watching TV when we heard something scratching at my dad’s bedroom door upstairs. The scratching got louder and louder then the door started to violently shake. We were too scared to move.
When I was about 16, I had hurt my leg so I was sleeping in my dad’s room with him. It was about 12:30 in the morning and I woke up screaming because I could feel something physically pulling me down the bed. My father woke up and put his glasses on to see a dark figure standing at the foot of the bed. We moved out of the house almost 3 years ago now due to the activity in the house. After we moved out, my brother went to the house to find a normally bright and lit up house to be pitch black and cold. He couldn’t even see his hand 3 inches in front of his face. He went upstairs to grab something and when he got back to the backdoor he turned around and the house was lit up and warm again. We have had the house blesses several times. Every time the activity got worse and worse, so we believe that the dark spirit my father saw was a demonic figure.
