This is not true. River Oaks Park was NOT built on an Indian burial ground. The only reason this area “may” be haunted is because of the old Agnews Hospital that used to be in the area but not built here. They moved the cemetery that was adjacent to the old hospital but there has never been any activity recorded by paranormal investigators. I asked the Ghost Trackers who are in the area if there was and they said no.

It strikes me that all of these “haunted” places really aren’t haunted. A park is plauged my nocternal sounds, by animals and insects, and–yes–by drunk bums. Just because you were scared in a park at night doesn’t mean it’s haunted. All it DOES mean is that your brought yoru biased opinion with you when you went, and were simply trying to find the evidence to fit your presupposition. This is a waste of everyone’s time. It’s one thing to have a hobby, but it’s totally different when you allow assinine stories like these to occupy your time.

i got a scarier one..well this guy and girl they were like boyfriend and girlfrend…so one day or should i say one night…they went out to this lake called “Lost Lake”…this is true and it was located in Fresno, could find it on a map…well they went out late at nite and decided to sit under a tree..well as they sat down..and it got darker…they started like making out….then all of a sudden the guy started to hear his girl moaning…moaning kinda like how a pig does it but not really more like a frog…so he was scared ….then he looked at her face…and she turned into this old wrinkly ugly ….and bleeding everywhere on her face…so he got scared and so he decided to put her in the back trunk of his car and drive all the way home…when he got home..he got sick and told them everything…so they went to get the girl out from the trunk….They told her to come they helped her out…and she didn’t know what had just happend or wat was going on…the a couple of days later her boyfrend started to get sicker..headaches and stomach aches…so they decided to do jingle bell….after they did they found out that it was because of him taking his girl to “lost lake”…it was a lady…but they didn’t know why…But rumors been spread out that there was a lady who went over there with her boyfriend and she was raped and killed over there…she came into his girl because she didn’t want him to rape her too…will i guess at least she thought he was going to rape her…but now they’re ok…and they’re married…

My dad was on his way to work one day around 4:00 in the morning and it was pitch dark. He saw something running with the car and just thought that it was a deer, then he put his bright lights on to make sure it was, and as soon as he turned on his bright lights, a little girl around the age of 7-10 jumped out in front of the car and he ran over her, but when he got out, there was no sign of blood or anything. He went to work with tears running down his cheaks and all of the men he worked with ask him ” whats the matter, looks like you saw a ghost.” He said that he did. He discribed the little girl to them and one of the workers said I see her running and laughing across my yard every night. But whats weird about it is, my dad saw that exact same little girl wave at him every day after school which is when my dad got out of work, but then after that happened to my dad, he never saw her again.

You must respect the dead, they are not to be taken lightly. I believe you don’t become a believer until you have experianced the unexplained. But “ghosts” are not to be feared or dememished. You need to repect them. As for reports of a “ghost” killing or killer, i do believe that a very strong poltergist can indeed kill when enough anger consums their engery, but i also believe that it takes a great deal of evil make a poltergist. The only advice I have to give is never invite a persents in your home unless you believe, and always repect the unknown. just remember there is a reason most stories are teenager based.

lets see, where do i begin. okay about 9-10 years ago i lived near lickmill park, in fact right next to the park was a big field full of tall trees. it was as if they never finished the park i found out later that it was an indian burrial ground….I was about 16-17 yrs. old at the time when about four of us went to explore this dark place. This is one thing i do remember and i’ll never forget it. As we started getting towards the middle of this place we heard some noise, like something walkin beside us. we all stop and look at eachother then we start looking around (now at that time we were the only troublemakers on the block, so who the hell was out there?)now as any young rebllious kids we carried wepons, two of us had knives. as for me i had nothing….okay. out of no where in a flash this thing just appears right in front of us. we were being stalked by a bobcat. (bobcats do live in the area but only in the hills and the closest hills are in milpitas and san jose.) now for some odd or weird reason why would a bobcat be out here?? for whatever reason i think this cat wanted us to see him. (a fullgrown male bobcat can get up to 80-90 lbs. just imagine a pitbull but as a cat.) we all look at eachother and in an instant my crazy *** friend attacks this thing. why?? i’ll never know. so as you all know, you never leave your friends hanging. so we all run after this thing. we end up on the banks of the guadelupe river and find my friend staring straight in a daze….according to him he said he seen this cat jump, leap, fly or whatever across the river and just dissapear. what happened?? what happened to you?? what happened to the cat?? why didnt you stop??….three days later my friend dies in his sleep. ghost story?? who knows…but i’ll never forget the way that cat looked and the way my friend Conrad looked after all was done. as if he seen a ghost.

My Mom told me a story about my uncle for the reason why he will not drive to this day! My uncle was driving down a dark street years ago, He saw a little girl in a white dress, she looked scared. he pulled over and asked if she was OK.She was crying. My uncle gave her a ride to her house. She ran to her house and went in right away. He noticed that when he was almost home, the girl left her hand bag she was carrying with her on the seat of the truck. The next day my uncle went to the house to return the hand bag. He knocked on the door and a elderly lady awnsered the door. He handed her the bag and said I dropped your daughter off last night. she was scared and crying”I hope she’s OK” she left her hand bag in my truck. The lady started to cry and said my daughter was hit by a car over 25 years ago and was killed.

One day or should i say one early morning like at 3:00 i was on the east side of san jose i was sleeping with my lady in the car after having some fun,(if you know what i mean) we park in a dead end street with no street lights. (Some times i have trouble breathing when im asleep and some one would wake me up) n-e ways, we were in the back seat sleeping and i was huging her like everyone would when they sleep with their ladys, so i open my eyes and just as i open them an old lady, well it look like a lady, it had long black hair and it was covering her face with it, it look like the movie called “The Grudge” you know the thing that its in the corner, well it came on to me and i couldnt move or say anything, it felt like when someone is on top of you and holding you down, as much as i wanted to scream and move, i couldnt. I was trying to pinch my lady but i still couldnt. I was breathing hard cause i was scard, my lady heard me, “NOW CHECK THIS OUT!!” With my two sexy eyes I SAW! my lady wake up and turn around and looked at me and as soon as she touch me i was able to move and speak! WAIT THATS NOT ALL!!! She said that she heard me breathing hard and she got scard and move me to wake up, SHE SAID THAT I WAS STILL SLEEPING WHEN SHE GOT UP!!!! THAT MY EYES WERE STILL SHUT!!! I said “no i wasn’t i saw you looking into my eyes!” she wouldn’t belive me, so i told her how she got up and all the moves she was making befor she touch me. She was shock, and i also told her what happend to me, She was so scard she wanted to leave ASAP!!! NOW SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME WTF WAS THAT!!!!!!

Well, I’m sorry I was wrong, once I went to there and there was someone crying 4 help. I went to see a Woman crying.”Whats the matter!”I asked. The women stopped crying to look at me. “i WANT U TO WATCH MY SON PLZ” I looked at her son. She left and when she came back she holded the boy’s hand and disspeared to the air.

This comment is to Jose Velasquez: First of all, you provided us with a bit of t.m.i. there–we didn’t need details. And second of all…exactly HOW MUCH pot had you and “your lady” been smoking after you two “had some fun?! Did it ever occur to you that that might have had something to do with your little experience?

I am part Indian. There are spirits that will rise when they have been disturbed. Many of our old burial ground have been destroyed and our ancestors have been disturbed. There are many places that the spirits haunt . You can scoff all you want but when the souls resting place is disrespected and disturbed
they will cause mayhem.

actually i am a ghost photograher! and i dont really do investigations! but i find some places to be real and some to not be! but it does not mean it isnt! from my education based upon this things only happen to people with..
1.lack of faith in god
2.history of growing up & being immuned to seeing or hearing
3.a gifted person
4.problems in your life
5.believing in aything and everything
this always happens to the ones i just mentioned! also dont ever go looking for it! they can maninfest itself into posseing you and you will either be 5150 kill your self or someone! its called demonic impressions devoring mortal souls! i no this to be true because its happen to love ones of mine! plus ghosts dont exist there energys get left behind & doesnt believe they are dead!
