Noises from the Floor

On May 6, 1994, a young woman was beaten to death with a garden hoe.

That’s just plain BS. I live right on the border of NH and NEVER heard any such story. I think I would remember someone beating to death a girl in 1994 and burying her under the floor. Grow up.

All this is such BULL. Anyway, what the hell is in New Hampshire? Next to Vermont, its about the most worthless state in the union. Ghost Schmost.

I lived in Portsmouth for six years. I just moved this year, actually. I moved to East Rochester. Wow, that’s really cool. I’ve lived in NH all my life and have never heard of this, but I’ll surely look into it! Margaritas, too? I knew I’d felt something strange in there (besides my ex-boyfriend, that is).

I also live in New Hampshire (over 20 years) and have never heard of this story either. Shame on you.

It’s true.

This “haunting” is incorrect. I did some research on this “murder in 1994 in Portsmouth,” but the only murder in NH, in 1994, was a 9 year old boy. There weren’t any others. It’s not like murder is a common occurance in New Hampshire.

I have lived in NH all my life, in Manchester, I have never heard this story either. I live in a very haunted house and know there are alot of spots in NH that are haunted and not mentioned here.
Oh as for the person who said, there is nothing in NH,
that person should really know what they are talking about before putting down any part of the country. It
only shows how intelligent you are to make comments like that, educate first, talk later… : )

So you got this ***** saying that New Hampshire is about the most worthless state in the union. You dry mouth **** don’t know what the **** your talking about. Where do you live thats so great ? Obviously your interested in N.H if your looking up **** on it. Why don’t you go **** your Mother some more. KTHNKZBYE

all i have to say is that ….
the person saying nothing happens in nh is wrong but that doesn’t make him a jerk… just wrong. i have lived between nashua manchester and merrimack for 12 years. i have many stories i could tell. this one is a hoax “as they say” but the ones you ghost hunters are looking for is blood cemetary on nartoff road. or gilson road cemetary, i have been push in one and strangled in another and i will never stop going there. those are places that need a paranormal investagator. if you are one i promise you will not be dissappointed. blood is the most famous. more commenly known as pine hill cemetary. no haunted house compares. trust someone who loves this.

I have lived in NH for many decades and have never heard of this supposed murder either.

Re: Ijustfarted’s Comment – I agree, there’s nothing in NH that would interest you. Good luck!

Omg! Blood cemetary is the worst haunted place ever. I swear i will never go there again i left in tears. There was this shape of a person in the road. I wish it was just me that saw it but i was with five other friends who did too. It was fucked up!
If you go up there anymore you’ll probley end up getting arrested though. Sooo many stoned teenagers ruined it for everyone.

Ramey says:

October 13, 2007, 7:09 pm

Blood Cemetery is ****** up!
I will never go there again. There was this thing, this person that was in the middle of the road. I wish it wasn’t just me that saw it but i was with five other people who saw it too. I was like screaming and crying, i was deeply freaked out. Its under heavy police watch, and heavy fines now too. Too many stoned teenagers going up there at night i guess.

Theres a cemetary in Lebanon New Hampshire called The Old Pine Cemetary that is believed to be haunted. We lived about a mile or two from it and on nights you can hear a horse and carriage going down the road. Its suppose to be one that hauled the dead people to the cemetary in the old days.
You also have to lock your doors when you drive by it at night cause they say things will come out of the woods and try to hitch a ride with ya.
Ive personally heard the horse and carriage going down the road and also seen a light up in the cemetary driving by one night.

Holly says:

Hey! I lived on the NH seacoast in 1994 and I didn’t hear about this, but I can’t say that it didn’t happen. I just wanted to say that NH is an awesome place. Sure, it might not be all that exciting, but that’s part of its charm. My town doesn’t have any traffic lights. I can hear cows mooing from my house. My town also doesn’t have any Dunkin’ Donuts, Home Depots, or Mc Donald’s. I saw a horse and buggy going down the road a while ago. We never lock our house or cars in the driveway. I live in a postcard. That may be nothing to some, but it’s my home.

oh my it isint true!!!!!!!!
ive been hearing this story for over 14 years!!!!
Ya…. okay its kinda a true story but u got it all wrong!!! The man was in jail but he got out cuz he broke free or sumthing and he was dating this girl and he took her to a hotel and he tryed to fool around with her and she didint want to so he shot her in the head and then there was a knock on the door and it was the police!! they must have found hes car!
anyways he cut her up into lil pieces and hid them under the floor boards and jumped out the window… the police got in the room and saw nothing so they left…. a couple days later a couple smelled something rotting under the floor boards so they got some person to lift up the boards and they found the pieces of her…. its 100% true story!!!

Just been reading the commments here, and it’s funny cause some of them are normal, valid comments from reasonable people who are not sure of what exactly they believe, but think that it may be possible for unexplained phenomenon to occurr in certain areas..then ya got the comments from immature morons, who obviously have the intelligence of a broom and who just want to get they’re little dig in at the believers because they feel that being crude and insulting is actually funny to others, again, this merely shows the ignorance of the peoples in question..these guys need to GET A LIFE!!As for me, I’m not sure what I believe, I have seen and experienced things that I cannot explain, but I’m still not totally committing myself to the fact that Ghosts actually exist, but I don’t go around putting people and places down because of it, I like the fact that its all a mystery…

Ok hi every one this is brittany agien i wrote on this wall when i was 15 years old now im 17 grown up even more. Look if ghosts are real and you have seen them then prove it to me until then im not going to act like a ******* 3 year old child like some of you and belive all the storys that are told to me about ******* ghost they arent real get over it and get a life grow a pair of balls. The floors are creeky because the ******* building is old and most building built today dont have cross over beems which makes floors creeky so if ur house is all creeky thn u probly dont have cross over beems witch make ur floors quit.

Count the seconds going

brutally murdered right in front of me…

No it isnt Bitc.h

Andrew says:

Honestly Shi.tface, there is no need for this kind of vulgar language. If she believes in the story, then so be it. Some people believe in stuff that other people don’t. It’s part of being grown-up (making your own decisions). For example, some people believe in God, some don’t, but people don’t go around and hate on people who do or do not. If Kayleigh believes, let her. On topic to the story, i personally believe that this COULD have happened. I’ve done a quick search on google and did not find anything, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t. Maybe the Police didn’t want anyone to know that somebody had escaped from prison as to keep people from freaking out. I will do a little bit more research and try to find out what hotel where this alleged killing occured, and perhaps spend the night in the room it supposedly happened in.
