JUNE 25, 1965, WHEATON, ILLINOIS, USA, SUSAN J., ROBIN J.:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

A Dutch author of books on ghosts and the paranormal reportedly told that on June 25, 1965, at 01:00 a.m., in Wheaton, Illinois, USA, Susan J,. 12 and her sister Robin, 10, were "in bed on the front porch of their house" when they noticed a person with long hair, dressed in a long white robe covering the feet, standing across the street, watching them.

This person said "Sue" twice, in a very low, or weak, but distinct voice, and the girls thought they heard a "Tsk tsk" sound as of disapproval.

The girls went to the edge of the porch, where they stayed, feeling that they could not move. Robin yelled several times "What do you want?" but there was no answer.

After perhaps 15 minutes, the figure turned and walked away. After about 10 steps it stopped, and "another form backed out of it," looking similar to the first, but 6" shorter, and transparent. The first figure walked on and then stopped again, and the 2nd one came up and again merged with it.

The reunited figure walked on to a neighbor's driveway where there was a luminous mist in which it rose up and vanished.

After this incident Susan allegedly began to develop psychic abilities, and poltergeist phenomena occurred in their house.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Wheaton, Illinois, on June 25, 1965, at 01:00 a.m., Susan J, 12 and her sister Robin, 10, were in bed on the front porch of their house when they noticed a person with long hair, dressed in a long white robe covering the feet, standing across the street watching them. This person twice uttered, in a very low but distinct voice, the name "Sue," and they thought they heard a "Tsk tsk" sound as of disapproval. The girls went to the edge of the porch, where they stayed, feeling that they could not move. Robin yelled several times "What do you want?" but there was no answer. After perhaps 15 minutes, the figure turned and walked away. After about 10 steps it stopped, and "another form backed out of it," looking similar to the first, but 6" shorter, and transparent. The first figure walked on and then stopped again, and the 2nd one came up and again merged with it. The reunited figure walked on, to a neighbor's driveway where there was a luminous mist, in which it rose up and vanished. After this incident Sue began to develop psychic abilities, and poltergeist phenomena occurred in their house.

Albert Rosales indicates as source Douwe J. Bosga.

Points to consider:

Douwe J. Bosga is a Dutch author of books on the paranormal, ghosts, and alleged psychic powers.

This is a story that can very well be the invention of a fantasy-prone girl, and does not seem to include any element of credibility.
