It was Feb 20th, 2015, I was at work. My job was caring for an elderly man. I had to sleep in the same room he did although we was separated by a large recliner. We usually went to bed around 8;30 and usually slept through the night. This was a Thursday night and my shift ended Friday morning at 8:00.
I woke up during the night around 2 or 3:00 am and directly over my head I saw a black mass floating above me. It seemed to be in the shape of a head that flowed down to the shoulders and body but no legs just an upper body shape. I layed there looking at it in disbelief, I didn't move at first. Then as I realized that it was actually there, I sat up and said what the hell are you ?
It just hovered over me so I said again what the hell are you ? Then suddenly it moved fast to the right side of the room and stopped at a wall. This put it right over the elderly man's bed. So I sat further up and I asked louder what the hell are you ? At that point it came back and hovered over my bed again and then I said what the hell are you ?
My yelling woke up the elderly man and I heard him call my name. I was still staring at it and then it suddenly shifted to the left and went behind a wall. Mr Marvin ask me if I was alright, he said who are you yelling at. So I knew he didn't see it. I told him it's ok don't worry! He thought I was talking in my sleep which I don't do.
I couldn't sleep the rest of the night, I wasn't scared because it didn't make me feel scared just confused, like what just happened to me. That Fri morning I got off work and came home still in disbelief but I knew that I saw something! I was feeling depressed and sad. I had to cancel a karaoke job I had for that night. I was shook up and still feeling confused! My daughter came to my house and I told her what happened!
She didn't miss a beat when she said - that was the angel of death? I said shut up, I don't want to hear that. She said that's what it sounds like. Now I'm in tears because I'm thinking it might have something to do with the elderly man I was caring for. Boy was I wrong because about 2:00 pm my nephew sent me a FB pm and said call me. I didn't want to talk to anybody so I ignored it. Then my husband's mobile phone started ringing, it was my nephew! Instead of answering it, I walked outside handed the phone to my husband and said answer your phone!
I turned and went back to the couch where I'd been all day. About 10 minutes later my husband came in and said I need to tell you something! I just stared at him and said what? He said Grady ( our nephew ) that called said Shelly is dead. Somebody murdered her and it's bad.!!! I was in shock, Shelly and her brothers had lived with me for years. I was in her life from the beginning. I loved her and had been very close to her.
She had been found around 5:30 Thur the same night I saw the black apparition. She was in Eutis, Florida and I was in N Louisiana when she died but I know that apparition has something to do with her death. It has bothered me ever since. I still am not sure what I saw or why.
That was Feb 20, 2015 and between her birthday on Dec 3 and Feb 20, I go thru a deep depression and still question what happened that night. Shelly was brutally murdered, she was mutilated and no one has been arrested for her death! She had to be cremated! There is still a murdering monster out there and I'm still trying to figure out what I saw. This was horrific! I've dealt with death before but never that kind of brutality!
I'm still looking for an answer so if anybody can identify with what I saw, please let me know!
