Was the Creepy Lake Man a glitch in the matrix, a ghost, or something altogether more terrifying.
6:30 a.m., December 1st, Somerton Beach in South Australia. A man is sat against a breakwall; an unlit cigarette perched on his slouched chest, his legs crossed. The well-dressed man has the appearance of sleeping off a late night drunk. But the man is not drunk, the man is dead.
Many people observed the now deceased man the night before, again, having the appearance of being drunk. He was seen being carried by another well-dressed man to the area where he would eventually be discovered the following morning.
At one point in the evening, the man is observed lying on his back in the sand and suddenly raising his hand to full extent, only to drop it.
The pathologist described the man as 40-45, in perfect shape, having the feet and legs of a ballet dancer, well dressed but not in possession of a hat, a rarity for time. It was noted that all labels on the clothing had been removed.
He had no identification on him and his dental records could not be matched to anyone. Even with the help of Scotland Yard and the FBI, they had no luck finding a match.
An autopsy on the man revealed that the cause of his death was most likely poisoning, making the sighting of the man being carried by another unknown, man a point of interest in the case.
A small piece of paper was found in the man’s pants pocket. On the paper, printed in unique font, were the words Tamam Shud. It appeared to be ripped from the page of a book, that book was found to be Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyám. The phrase Tamam Shud in Persian means ended or finished. It is just my opinion, but I believe that the paper was planted on the man, so that when his body was found, the media would mention the tamam shud scrap, letting the right person, or persons, know that the man had successfully been killed.
More strange and cryptic evidence was linked to the mystery man with the discovery of a brown suitcase that was found at the train station where the man had checked it. Multiple garments in the suitcase also had their tags removed except for one tag that was left; it was a tag that read “KEANE” except for one tag that dropped the “E” at the end of “KEANE”. It is speculated that these tags that bore a name were left only because it wasn’t the man’s name. The man was embalmed and buried in the local cemetery. Flowers began showing up on the mystery man’s grave and a woman suspected of leaving them was questioned but she claimed it was not her.
All these strange details surrounding the tamam shud mystery man’s death have lead to the speculation that he was a spy, and to this day, his identity is still unknown.
Do this some other time. This is probably a hoax
Whenever I think of The Tamam Shud case, I tend to find it similar to the case of The Taured Man. In this case, an unknown man is uncounted in a Tokyo customs line where it is discovered that the man comes from a country that does not exist.
Green Charter township, in Mecosta county, a man named Robert Fortney is camping along the Muskegon river when a pack of wild dogs close in on him.
Fortney remained silent, but the sensitive noses of the dogs quickly picked up his scent. Since he had been small game hunting earlier in the day, Fortney had his loaded rifle nearby.
As the dogs approached, they assumed the group posture of a pack on a hunt. Fortney picked up the gun and fired a shot into the air.
The dogs cringed and turned to slink back into the forest, all accept one: a huge black dog with unusual eyes.
“They were blue,” said Fortney. “What kind of dog has blue eyes?” The big dog and Fortney considered each other for a long moment, less than ten feet separating them. Fortney fired another shot over the head of the strange dog. Then to Fortney’s shock and amazement, the black dog stood up on two legs and cast a glare that sent shivers down his spine.
“It reared up on its hind legs and stared at me,” said Fortney in a phone interview in 1987. “It may be that I was just scared, but I swear that dog was smiling at me.”
This detail of a Dogman seeming to smile is common to the legend of the Michigan Dogman and seems to suggest that the creature has a devious, calculating demeanor.
A cool summer mornin’ in early June is when the legend began,….At a nameless logging camp in Wexford County where the Manistee River ran. ….Eleven lumberjacks near the Garland Swamp found an animal they thought was a dog.
….In a playful mood they chased it around …’til it ran inside a hollow log….. A logger named Johnson grabbed him a stick and poked around inside… Then the thing let out an unearthly scream and came out …and stood upright. .
..None of those men ever said very much about whatever happened then. ….They just packed up their belongings and left that night and were never heard from again.
This is how Steve Cook’s “The Legend” begins and it is touted as the first Michigan Dogman sighting. Since the airing of the Steve cook song, there have been over 500 Wolfman/Dogman sightings.
The falling body ghost goes like this…
Sometime in the 1950s the Cooper family of Texas bought an old house and moved into it. On their first night there, the father took a photo of Mom and Grandma posing with the two kids at the dining room table. Everyone was happy and smiling. They were living the American dream.
But when the photo was subsequently developed, they saw, to their horror, that what looked like a body falling or hanging from the ceiling had materialized behind them. It hadn’t been there when the father took the photo. So where had it come from? Was it an apparition of a deceased former tenant of the house? No one knew.
George Lutz, the man who lived in the Amityville house with his wife, Kathy Lutz, revealed this photo on the Merv Griffin Show in 1979.
Gene Campbell, who was part of the paranormal investigation team led by Ed and Loraine Warren, took the photo. The camera was set up to take photos automatically using infrared.
Some have speculated that it is the ghost of John Defeo, the young boy who was murdered along with his family by Ron Defeo in 1974. Others have suggested it is Paul Bartz, another paranormal investigator involved with the case.
As you can see, Paul Bartz, although young at the time, does not look as young as the Amityville ghost kid. More importantly, it doesn’t look anything like the kid at all.
What I think is more important that who the ghost kid is, is the fact that the eyes are reflecting infra red just like a flesh and blood body would do. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not a ghost kid, I mean, it is also wearing clothes, how and why the hell are ghost always wearing clothes? Does it mean that articles of clothing have souls? DUN DUN daaaaaaAAAAH! Maybe next time when you lose a sock, you’ll be a little more concerned.
