If you ever had a grandpa who loved to tell stories, you know that a lot of times what he promises is the truth seems questionable at best. My grandfather actually wrote an entire book of his adventures and I must say almost every chapter seemed like complete fiction. A few years back there was a great movie named Big Fish which basically covered this exact topic. It featured a grandpa who was known for telling the most wild tales of adventure, danger, love and the unimaginable. If you haven’t seen Big Fish and you find the story we are covering today interesting, I highly recommend you check it out!

What’s so amazing about grandfather’s and their tall tales is usually nobody in the family knows for sure what is real and what is fiction and the mystery that makes story telling grandad’s so awesome! This brings us to today’s story which features Mike and Maria Lopez who had to clean out their grandpa’s attic. Mike and Maria’s grandpa was one of these guys who could really tell a story. Not only was his timing and delivery flawless but the content was always fascinating. For the most part the Lopez’s took all his stories with a grain of salt and although they loved his tales of adventure they never really fully believed him.

To give you an example of Maria and Mike’s grandfathers stories he once told them that he had discovered the hidden treasure of a famous pirate named Jose Gaspar. Of course this story seemed absolutely outlandish, riddiculous and unbelievable but grandad sure was entertaining. After he passed away, his grandchildren had to go into his attic to go through all his stuff and clean it out. They figured that they would find some cool stuff up there, but what they were about to uncover is something they never could’ve prepared for!

As they rummaged through all the junk, they came across a box that looked to be out of place from the rest of the stuff. It sparked their curiousity so they opened it up and first saw a black and white picture of a couple at their wedding and figured it was grandpa and their grandmother. But as they went through the box, the next thing they found was an odd map of Tampa, Florida which looked like he drew it or possibly a 3rd grader. The map seemed odd to them especially since it was hand drawn and looked pretty messy. Under the map, they uncovered the next strange items. They looked like ancient coins from Spain and Portugal which could’ve been up to 500 years old!

All of sudden, they began to wonder if maybe grandpa was just telling a good fairy tale and maybe just maybe there was some truth behind his stories. After they went through the coins, they got to the next level down in the box and that’s when things really started to get weird. The found what looked like the remains of a human hand which somehow had been pretty well preserved inside the old treasure chest. Why in the world would grandpa hide an ancient looking hand in the attic for all these years?

They had way more questions then answers and unfortunately grandpa was no longer around to clarify what was truly going on. Little did they know they would uncover so much more of their grandfather’s mysteries…

They Heard Strange Noises Coming From The Attic. They Set Up A Hidden Camera and Caught THIS

When it comes to ghosts and spirits people are generally split into two categories; those who believe in them and those who do not. Many people say “seeing is believing” but that doesn’t seem to apply when it comes to paranormal activity. A lot of people view whatever evidence there is of spirits, ghosts, and apparitions with preconceived notions that it’s all not real.

It is too easy to write off the many photos, documents, first hand accounts, and videos as either forgeries, lies, or doctored images and tapes. In this day and age people need to rationalize and explain everything, and since paranormal activity is not truly understood, any possible proof of it is quickly disregarded as manipulated, set up, or photo-shopped.

One thing that is for certain is that strange things seem to happen in home basements or attics. It seems like spirits and ghosts prefer those spots over any other rooms in the house. Maybe the dark, quiet spaces are better suited for paranormal needs.

Regardless of whatever the reason is, those places are scary enough on their own, especially when you have an overactive imagination. However, when you notice that something strange is indeed happening in your attic, you naturally want to get to the bottom of it. After all, it’s very disconcerting to hear noises or activity coming from a part of your home that should be empty.

Plus, what if there is an animal living up there, you can’t just ignore it. When Donna and Revan Smith noticed that something strange was happening in their attic they naturally checked it out. Seeing no evidence of animals or any obvious signs that could point to the source of the noises they kept hearing at night, they assumed it was perhaps a ghost.

So they set up a camera in the attic in hopes of catching whatever it was in action and placed what they termed “3 trigger objects” in view of the lens to see if the spirit would interact with them. You can see the items in the clip, they are a ball, a flashlight, and a creepy looking doll.

With everything set up and in place the Smith’s switched the camera on and retreated to their bedroom which is located right below the attic. They’d set up the camera feed so that it played live through their TV and they could see everything happening in real time.

Seeing if they could get a reaction, Donna asked any spirit that may be present to give them a sign. Unbelievably, a spirit or ghost or something responded by switching on the flashlight they’d left. The ghost then turned it off, and Donna asked if could do it again.

You can see the flashlight turn back on a second time and then off. According to the video comments, the flashlight was an LED type, which do not turn on and off by themselves. Thus, a force that cannot be explained appears to be turning the flashlight on and off!

Whether or not you believe in ghosts, this video evidence is too good to simply ignore. Check it out and decide whether or not you think the event captured is the work of a ghost or something else…
