Virginia Prison Spirit

Posted on May 16, 2010

I was in prison for a two year sentence and by then had been getting back into reading the bible and rethinking my life. I’m not some easily convinced person when it comes to the paranormal, and would say that even spiritual experiences should be tested and thought through using a little common logic, reason, psychology and an understanding of human behaviors and surrounding conditions.

I was on the second tier at the Powhatan correctional prison in Virginia. We were all locked down for the night. They have these huge fans that you can hear running like generators just outside the cells somewhere. I was on the bottom bunk of a two man cell. I was laying down fetal position facing the wall. My cell mate was sleeping above me.

As I lay there, I started to drift asleep when suddenly I felt somebody in the cell. It felt like somebody was standing there behind where I lay staring at me. So I started to open my eyes very slowly… and did but only two slits so that they wouldn’t see my eyes totally open. I didn’t want the person to know that I knew they were standing there. I thought it must be one of the guards, but then I reasoned with myself that I should have heard the loud clanking of the keys opening the cell, not to mention the loud rumble of the cell door slide open. This thought set my heart racing, because at the same time I knew if it were my cell mate I definitely would have felt the bunk move as he climbed down from his bed. Then things got really weird.

I felt this spirit, or demon or whatever it was lean closer to me. It was to the point I could even feel it’s body heat right next to the side of my head. Just then I started to hear a low drone inside my head. It sounded like listening to a motor boat idling while you are under water. Like “Wuuuuh wuuuh wuuuh wuuuuh wuuuh” but muffled.Then a chanting came from within that sound. It was repeating words I didn’t understand. It was chanting Koo’s Kahs Course Koo’s kahs course koo’s kahs course…. and then my whole body froze and I couldn’t breathe. I moved a finger, then my hand, then my arm… then I jumped up and looked around but nobody was there.

Now maybe it was just that weird state you sometimes go into when you’re almost asleep…. you know… body slows down before the conscience does… but still… it sure felt real to me and it’s something I haven’t forgotten after 14 years.

    um I’m not even going to try but… that is b.s. if it were true and you said that there was a fan there then wouldn’t the fan cause a breeze or an updraft that may feel like that, and what the fan was making the sounds that you heard i know a person would ask “why didn’t my cell mate hear it?” maybe because they were a heavy sleeper plus that gibberish ” Koo�s Kahs Course Koo�s kahs course koo�s kahs course�.” could have been created by the fan like i said before and your imagination took control and did the rest. sorry for being mean but you have to consider every scientific factor until you cant explain it then have another person who has a story similar but somehow different story.

    to the guy that wrote the above comment…..i believe this guy…i served some time also, and when you servin time the normal noises you get so used to that it would had probably been real hard for him to mistaken this for the noise of the fan! when you locked up, things are so repetitive that you can be real aware of something that isnt normal. good story man, when i was locked up, i had some weird things happen in my cell too! couple time i would swear that i could see this figure standing in my cell sometimes after lights out! it was always in the same spot, but when i would go over to it, it would disapear.

      are you sure it wasn’t just a delusion due to some sort of unknown factor like some fort of mold or food that inhaled or eaten over time it may have a delusional affect that could also mess with the sound that is processed by the brain. or did the figure appear more than once?

  3. trolldoll says:

    i believe most prisons are haunted. so much negativity, and so many violent deaths.

  4. big barney says:

    no.the figure appeared more then once,….it appeared atleast six or seven times over some time

    • truthlies,liestruth says:

      you sure it wasn’t just the guards playing a trick on you by stopping the fan and then using a dim light source to make the shadow appear and the voices that you heard could have been the guards also trying to pull a prank

  5. Carla Clark says:

    usually when it is a spirit it will get colder not warmer . . . but anything can happen with paranormal situations

    JASON–thats weird.can i ask if you dont want to say thats fine with me.why were you in prison?well have you had more things happened to you since then?maybe whatever it was,was that it wanted to scare you for what you did.i dont know.never know.thanks for the story.

  7. martha says:

    You said you had been reading the bible. If you believe the bible then you must believe in spirits. Jesus rose from the dead and was seen by the decipeles as well as others. Wouldn’t angels be concidered spirits. The bible talks about spirits alot. What do you think?

    • truthlies,liestruth says:

      umm actually angels are thought to be some other form of an ethereal being

      • martha says:

        truthlies would the wholly ghost be considered a ghost. thanks for your reply. I’ve just always thought if it was a spirit then it was a ghost, just didn’t know. Like I said Thanks.

        • truth within the hidden truth says:

          the holy ghost is thought to be another form of “God” so i cant actually say if it is a spiritual, physical, or more ethereal
