I'll make this as short as possible. There's a disturbing situation w/ a long-time, ex-teacher friend of my mom's. This lady is in her 70s...never married or had kids. I'll call her Mary. About 12-15 yrs ago, Mary moved into a single family home where she lives alone. A couple yrs into living there, she started having conflict w/ her next door neighbor, a lady in her 50s w/ 2 grown kids. They'd park their car in front of Mary's house, so she couldn't put her trash out there on trash day. Mary called the police & somehow was able to have the curb out front painted red, so no one could park there. I guess that cleared that up. Since then, Mary is POSITIVE that this neighbor is doing all kinds of things to her property by sneaking in Mary's backyard & tampering with &/or stealing items (water hose, lights, etc., etc.) Mary got a whole video camera sytem set up outdoors. The lady was able to burn out the Mary's outdoor night light & Mary researched that if you wrap thick wax paper around it, it can't be burnt out. Mary's made numerous calls to the police about her actually accusing her, but nothing's done. Mary strongly believes this lady has also been ENTERING her (Mary's) home and tampering with/stealing things. Mary claimed she's seen the lady on the video camera leaving her (Mary's) house. She thinks the lady knows how to pick locks & is extremely tech savvy to know how to do all these these things. Inside Mary's house, her diamond ring was suddenly missing from it's usual spot, some dolls have been rearranaged, etc. There was mysterious dirt on Mary's carpet...not in the shape of footprints though. My mom thinks her friend is beyond paranoid, but possibly going crazy...all kidding aside. The police probably know Mary as "that crazy lady" because numerous reports have been made by Mary. Her case was actualy turned over to a detctive who said not to call the police anymore, but to call him if anything else goes wrong. Mary has never caught the lady nor has proof. I asked if she hears strange noises, which she doesn't seem to. Also no footprints are seen, etc. Mary might file a retraining order against the lady, but I don't know. I lately began to think the house may be haunted & my mom thought I had a point. My mom mentioned that to Mary, who said anything's possible, but she doesn't think it's the case here. An elderly couple used to live in the house & the husband died & the wife was the last one there. It's unknown if either one actually died in the house. Real estate agents don't reveal hauntings (like the law may say they should). What do you all think?
