Contractors are claiming that they have seen “bizarre events” at the home where serial killer Ted Bundy grew up.
Casey Clopton and his company, Extreme Contracting were hired in September to renovate the home where serial killer Ted Bundy grew up. According to the Puget Sound Regional Archives, the Bundy family bought the home in 1955. Bundy would have been 8-years-old. The family stayed there for a decade before selling it in 1965. The current owner is planning to flip the Tacoma, Washington house after the renovations.
During Clopton’s second visit to the home he brought along his 11-year-old daughter. As they walked upstairs, she told her father she didn’t feel right. According to a CBS affiliate in Washington State, she started crying and asked her dad to leave.
“I just chalked it up to a little girl being scared of the dark,” he said.
But the creepy vibes kept on coming and coming.
Clopton’s crew claimed they spent months hearing jiggling doorknobs and phantom footsteps. One worker claimed he would hear knocks on a door, but nobody was there. Clopton also claimed that the crew would arrive in the morning to find several drawers and cabinets opened up. But, Clopton said nothing was taken, and the doors were still locked with the alarm activated. A dresser that was wedged into the wall also allegedly fell by itself.
“To take that out, it takes you two people,” Clopton said. “It was tipped over, moved over across the hall a little bit, and on its face.”
The real estate broker, James Pitts, also had a moment that he felt was paranormal. He tried to record a Facebook Live video in the basement of Bundy’s childhood home.
“My phone kept resetting, and kept resetting until it wouldn’t turn itself back on anymore,” Pitts said. “It just crashed pretty much.”
In the seven months they worked on the house, Clopton’s crew experienced about 30 odd incidents according to a report by The Olympian. They also found creepy notes.
One of Clopton’s crew members claimed he found the word “Leave” written in sawdust. He took a photo of it for evidence. He also claimed that he found “Help Me” written in dirt on the inside of a window in the basement.
In response to the spooky occurrences, the renovation crew penciled Bible verses on the walls of the home. They also brought in pastors to bless the house. Clopton instituted a rule that Christian music must be played at all times inside the home. Clopton thinks the religious acitions helped. He said occurances calmed down afterwards, and he said the whole ordeal made him a believer.
“That there’s something else out there, man. That’s what I think it is,” he said. “That we are not alone out here.”
