Psychic Investigation 9
CROYDON PSYCHIC INVESTIGATION
On another psychic investigation undertaken in November 2006 in Croydon a family had experienced a lot of paranormal activity over a long period of years and wanted answers. Members of the family had received scratches in the night time, pushed down the stairs and even the young son had been held down in the bathroom. The family felt due to the nature of the haunting it was negative and wanted help. It turned out to be one of saddest stories of a young girl on her first night out.
This young teenager in the 1960s was going to her first dance at the local church community hall. (See psychic art portrait to the left hand side) Her parents were very old fashioned and had bought a dress which they felt was appropriate and as she dressed in her first grown up dress she was so excited. She felt wonderful. The family lived not far from the church and her parents made her promise that she would be home before 9.00pm that night. She had argued with them because her dad wanted to meet her from the church hall but she wanted to be an adult and come home on her own. She promised them faithfully she would come home by 9.00pm. Her parents told her she was on probation and there would be no more dances if she was late. Unfortunately, she never came home.
In her thoughts were the events of a wonderful night and she was humming a tune as she walked home. It was early around 8.30 pm and she would be well in time to get home by 9.00 pm but this was late spring and it was dark. It was cold enough to wear a cardigan but warm enough not to wear a coat and as she swung her little handbag up and down she did not see the gang of six boys in the shadows watching her. They were young aging around 15 to 18 years old and they had been drinking. As this young girl was passing by open land they surrounded her and grabbed her.
The house on the end of the open land was vacant and they broke in dragging her up the stairs. They were intent on having some fun. She fought all the way - kicking, screaming and screaming, scratching and kicking. She fought so hard and so long that in the end someone punched her in the face to stop the noise. The house next door was occupied and they didn't want to make too much noise. They dragged her into one of the bedrooms and repeatedly raped her and raped her and raped her. Poor child. She fought all the way still scratching and screaming. In the end, they put something across her face to stop the noise but unfortunately this poor child suffocated. I don't think it was their intention to kill her and it may have been by accident and that has gone through me with a huge shiver but there is no doubt it is still murder.
Panic set into the boys and they quickly sobered up when they realised she was dead. One boy ran off frightened and upset. The rest bundled her up in a dirty looking sheet that they had found and when the coast was clear they hurriedly carried her limp little body over the road into the woods and onto land they knew would not be touched. They buried her in a unmarked grave and they all swore that none of them would mention this incident again.
The young lad that ran away was from a good family and as he ran he stopped and was sick. He was appalled by what had happened. He did not rape the young girl and in his mind he knew he should have helped her. This incident played on his mind for the next two years so much so that he eventually committed suicide. It was the young girl that haunted the house trying to get her story out by enacting what had happened. Just like the story above on the anniversary of the incident the energies would be higher. This would allow this spirit to get some of her story out by scratching the young daughter and by any means trying her hardest to get attention. She also wanted to protect the young daughter so that nothing bad like this would ever happen to her. She is your guardian angel. She wanted justice and she wanted to be found. Apparently, two of those boys are now in the spirit world but there are still four alive. I have had the shivers on all of that and that is spirits way of saying something is 'spot on' just like someone walking over your grave.
I want to thank Chris, Paul and Dave for their kind help and assistance in the psychic investigation and especially Pam who gave up a days work to attend. I also want to thank the spirit of this little girl as we sat together writing this story tears running down both our faces. Finally, I also want to thank Linda for her kind hospitality After saying prayers in the house I hope that Linda will now find only peace and love in her beautiful home. I hope that now understanding the story of what has happened can put your mind to rest that there is nothing bad there just a very tragic event. Now the hard work really begins for you to find her- God bless you Jane xx
