The Associated Press has a report from Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia of a man who had an extreme paranormal encounter as he attempted to burgle a house.
Adbul Marlik Hakim Johar, a police official working in Kuala Lumpur, told the local The Star newspaper that the owners of the house found the exhausted and dehydrated would-be burglar when they returned after a holiday.
The man admits to breaking into the house and told police that he was held captive by a ‘supernatural figure’ for three days. He was allowed neither food nor water. Each time he tried to escape the house the entity would shove him to the ground.
There are a number of well known hauntings in and around Kuala Lumpur. One such location is the ill-fated Highland Towers which was hit by a landslide which decimated three levels of the apartment complex. Sadly many people died and now reports of voices and apparitions are common. In one incident a taxi driver claims to have dropped off a female passenger at the Towers and he discovered later that she had left a bag full of blood behind in the cab.
In Pure Spirit
This is one of those stories which really make you think. Sure enough the man will be embarrassed at being found so easily in the house he had broken into and the word of a burglar may count for little… but why make up the story of a ghost? Can he really fake exhaustion?
