Ghost at Colorado’s Barr Lake Known to Throw Sucker Punches
In this case, the ghost throws punches. Even worse, they're sucker punches.
The Haunting of Barr Lake, Colorado
The website Legends of America shared a story about "Haunted Barr Lake, Colorado." The author, Cecilia, tells of a haunting at her home near Barr Lake back in 2005. According to Cecilia, she ignored talk from neighbors describing items mysteriously moving around and feelings of a "presence" in their homes.
'Attack' Happened After They Moved Out
Cecilia reports she and her family had already moved out of the home at Barr Lake before the encounter. She returned to the house for some last-minute cleaning before the move-out was finalized.
She Was Alone In The House
While alone in the house, Cecilia says she heard some strange noises the house typically made. She adds, though, her cat was acting strangely. It was while mopping a bathroom that the nightmare began.
Cecilia says, " As I was leaning into the bathroom from the hallway, something or someone hit me – hard, on the back. It felt as though a fist had slammed into my back! When I spun around, nothing was there." At the same time, the aforementioned cat was "...at the end of the hallway, hair standing on end, and hissing."
More Than One Spirit In The House
It is Cecilia's opinion the house is haunted by three spirits, a woman in her 20s, a young girl, and an older man. She believes it was the older man who sucker-punched her. Cecilia says her back remained warm and red where she was punched, but the area was not left bruised.
