I currently live in a house located in Cape Coral, Florida.  We have noticed several things that we could not explain why they happened.

It started about 3 years ago.  We noticed lights going on and off without the switch moving.  I kept seeing a shadow of a little girl standing in between both kids room.  
Primarily she would be in the bigger room where most of the toys are.

One night I was asleep and woke up to the fire alarm going off.  Our fire alarm is set by a red beam that shoots across a very fine space and when something blocks it, it
goes off.  Well, nothing was blocking it.  We did not cook anything that night, so it was not any steam or anything.  I looked over in the hall as I turned off the lights to go
back to bed and I saw her there.

Finally, I sat down in the dark and asked her why she was here.  Mentally I knew the answer, she was lonely.  I asked her why she did some of the things that she does.  
Again, my mind told me that she wanted to play and she missed her mommy.  That her mommy has not yet crossed over.  I asked her to stop making so much noise at

After that, we have not heard much from her.  But from time to time we see the cats being chased by something and spooked when they were sleeping.  We know.

One night, when the children were staying the weekend at their father's, my girlfriend and I went into the toy room because we heard a toy running.  The kids had not been
there for 2 days and there was a big robot walking around.  It runs by batteries.  The on button is very hard to push up, so we know the cats could not do it.

I have another situation!

When I sleep.  I see things and hear things in my sleep that I can not explain as well.  One night an old man from World War I came to me and used my mind to find his
wife that was on the other side.  The next night he thanked me in my dream.  Everyone tells me that they are just dreams.  Except my mother.  She used to be the same
way.  She has an Indian watching over her.

Could you help me sort a few things out.

Thank you,


The address is xxxxxxx, Cape Coral, Florida
There is no history that I know of.  I have not tried to take pictures.

Another thing she likes to do is...When I look at the shadow and I stand up, the shadow grows with me.  Another form of her playing around.

This house is only 8-10 years old.  However, I don't know much about the land.

What do you think is going on with my dreams.

I am half awake and half asleep.  I can not fall deep asleep because I can hear them.
The only way I can sleep is by putting a pillow over my ears to block them out.
Actually, feather pillows work the best.


NOTE:  For any on you that may have knowledge of this haunting or suggestions for Brad please contact us and we will pass the infomation on to him. Thank you

“There are rare persons in this world who see things others
don’t; persons who connect the dots of existence and
possess an instinctive talent for linking with kindred souls to
reveal otherwise invisible patterns and excavate hidden
truths. Such a person is Mary Sutherland. She is a natural-
born networker in all she does --- from her Burlington
Vortex Conferences and Sci’Fi Café to her public talks and
published books. Nowhere, however, is her gift for
perception more developed than in her latest title.“  Frank
Joseph .
Joseph was nominated by Japan's Savant Society as
Professor of World Archaeology. He was editor-in-chief of
Ancient American Magazine from 1993 to 2007 and has
traveled the world collecting research materials for his
twenty-seven published books.
"Mary Sutherland is not simply a reporter of all these phenomena;
she lives them! As readers expect, her studies extend beyond her
own experiences. The author and investigator often takes visitors
on tours containing an inter-dimensional vortex and hosts yearly
conferences and meet ups with many well known speakers on
anomalous phenomena."
What differentiates her book. Haunted Burlington Wisconsin , is that
Sutherland includes her explanations of the unknown realms and
phenomena with tips for heightening the reader's own psychic
awareness. Readers who complete this dizzying journey may find
they can no longer look at Burlington in exactly the same way.
Perhaps, then, this book itself may be considered a vortex. and
whether or not it actually transports you to another place, it will
certainly draw you in."

and radio shows, including Monsterquest, Sean Hannity's America,
