This incident took place July, 2009 in Iowa. One night, my boyfriend and I were hanging out when we decided to go back to his house. He lives in a small house just outside of town (with no neighbors) that he rents from his father. We pulled into the gravel driveway and just sat in his truck for a few minutes to look at the stars. This was about one in the morning. I started to stare off, and I was just staring in the direction of where the basement of the house is, not looking at anything in particular. Then my boyfriend said, "Honey, don't stare off into the dark. You'll start seeing things." I stopped then, not thinking anything of it.
Finally, we decided to go inside. That's when the weird stuff started happening. We got inside, and usually we just head straight to the living room couch to watch some TV. But my boyfriend decided to go into the kitchen first, which I found odd. I followed him in there and discovered that all of the cabinets were open. We were both silent.
We were then horrified when we heard what sounded like something was either being skinned or being drug across the floor in the basement (which you get to from the kitchen). We immediately put on our shoes and bolted out of there.
Before that, he always had that basement door padlocked. And the basement door from the outside was nailed shut. That night both doors had been intact, not in any way harmed. The next day my boyfriend went down there to check things out, but there was nothing to be found. From the noises we heard, there should have been blood stains or a dead body.
Since then, there have been other occurrences. I remember one night I was sitting in his car waiting for him to come out of the house, and I heard distinct human footsteps behind the car, even though I couldn't see anything. And one other night he was trying to sleep, but he kept hearing the voice of a little girl. The people who lived in that house before him also heard strange things. My boyfriend still lives in that house to this day, and still experiences strange things.
