Creepy Hidden Staircase Leads To Frightening Discovery

Creepy Hidden Staircase Leads To Frightening Discovery

I have to tell you, this one gave me a shiver. One of my favorite new bloggers is Susan Duclos of ‘Wake Up America’. Susan often finds those needles in the haystack that others miss. This is one of those needles and quite creepy to say the least.

It all started when two boys were playing in their parents room. As they were doing what boys do, they must have accidentally touched a button or lever that released the bookcase, causing it to swing out into the room.

What happens next will start to peak your interest.

Above, we see the bookcase as it usually appears.

Here, we see the bookcase released, exposing the passageway hidden behind it.

Once the bookcase was opened, the boys saw a hidden passageway that led to a secret staircase. Now, things are getting interesting, right?

In the photo above, we can now see the secret passageway.

Spiral staircase leading to….

When the boys climbed down, they made a startling discovery. Hidden inside the walls of the family home was a crawlspace, just big enough for one or two people. And in this crawlspace, they found candy wrappers and banana peels that had come from inside the house, in fact, they boys recognized the wrappers as likely being from their Halloween haul. Worse of all, it wasn’t like these food items were old. No, they were quite fresh.

Someone was living inside the wall spaces of the house!

Crawlspace with food wrappers and a banana peel that looks to be less than a week old.

By now, the boys had gotten their parents and further investigation turned up a few items, such as a key, a ceramic nicknack and a couple of dolls.


Here’s a video on the story uploaded by Susan Duclos:

Police suspect that whoever this intruder is, they have been living in the house, coming out at night to steal food and do who knows what while the family slept. Then during the day, it was either leave or stay holed up in the crawlspace.

The investigation is still pending, but the family was advised to stay elsewhere until the person or persons were apprehended.

Now, that’s the story we are getting and while it’s a good one, there’s just too much missing here. Where did this happen? What was the name of the family? The list of questions could go on and on. I’m just wondering if the whole thing was manufactured by someone who discovered the passageway and decided to create a story around it.

Until I can get more substantial support for this, I’m going to hold back on believing it. Susan put it out there, but she did it much in the same way I am now. At any rate, something like this could actually happen.
