This case was submitted directly to The Black Vault:
I am now 64 years old. This happened when I was approximately 3 or 4 years of age. I have this picture that intrigues me. Wondering if you would like to blow it up in size and see what you think.
Very anxious to have your reply. It may not be in your line of work, but you may know who would be interested in this picture and what it holds. I had an experience a couple of years later in my neighborhood.
In the middle of the day I saw a strange young man with sun glasses and a cane walking up our street. I followed him into the woods and the next thing I know, I was walking out of the woods and it was almost dark outside. I do not remember anything about any encounter, but I do have a scar by my left knee. It has always been there and I do not know how I got it.
Also, that very night I was supposed to lock the back door before bed and for some unknown reason I unlocked the door instead. A few minutes after our family went to bed, someone came into our house and walked through each room undected.
I watched him as he went from the kitchen, through the room we kids slept in, through the bathroom, through the parents room, through the livingroom, through the dining room, and back through the kitchen, and out the back door. While he was in the kids room, he looked to see if I was watching and I pulled the covers over my face until he walked on.
I know this sounds crazy, but it did happen. I have only seen this picture in the last few years. I didn’t know who would be interested so I kept it to myself. I await your feedback. Thanks.
