This account is not your typical ghost story and involves a close relative who we will call Jeff (not his real name). Jeff relayed this story to me several days after it had occurred. The events in this account took place approximately 25 years ago when Jeff was in High school.
I attended the Australian National University (ANU) in the mid 1990's. This account is set then. I lived on campus at Burton and Garran Hall, a busy student residence filled with eager students broadening their academic horizons.
In early 2004 I had an experience that left me fearing for my life. At the time my family was away and I was making the most of the time alone with a marathon internet session. At this point, broadband was not generally available in Queanbeyan and we used dial up. We had two phone lines so we could make and receive calls with one whilst being online with the other. To make calls we typically used a portable phone that would need to be charged via the base unit every so often. On this occasion, I had the phone sitting next to me whilst surfing online. At a little after midnight I decided that nobody was likely to be calling and I decided to take the phone downstairs to charge it.
My wife and I bought a haunted house in Queanbeyan in approximately 2001. I won't give the exact address out of respect for the new owners but I will say the house is located in Binaburra Place. Our first inkling that something may have been wrong with the house (which we bought brand new) occurred soon after we moved in. There were all the usual foot steps and slamming doors heard when everyone was in bed and my children were sound asleep. After a while we just accepted the strange nocturnal sounds and stopped getting up to check on them.
