There's a road near New London, Minnesota that is claimed to be haunted. Timber Lake Road is lined by dense forest and at nighttime, it turns eerie, with locals reporting to see strange red eyes in the dark and other ghostly apparitions. As you might guess, it has a tragic history. One day, a mother who lived on Timber Lake Road came home to discover that her children had been murdered. Grief stricken, she hung herself. Her ghost is believed to still roam the rural road, looking for the murderer.
In the summer of 2015, a deaf woman and her boyfriend stayed in their mother's home in New London, not terribly far from this haunted road. And she had a super spooky encounter.
In the middle of the night, she felt like someone was watching her in the corner of the bedroom, specifically a shadowy figure with white, glowing eyes (she had a vision in her head of it). But she was too afraid to actually peek open her eyes to see. A week later, the mother's boyfriend stayed in the same bedroom and had a similar feeling. This time he took a picture, and you can scroll down to see the creepy image!
What's even creepier is the mother ended up admitting later that she believed the house to be haunted, and that's why she was about to break the lease! She would hear strange noises in the house, however since her daughter was deaf, she didn't think the noises would be bothered! Check out the original photo taken below as well as some lightened versions of it, and the original witness testimony shared in a popular Reddit thread.
Original ghost image
It was taken in summer of 2015 at a house in New London, MN by my mom’s boyfriend. My mom moved in this house in the woods with 1 year lease, but she moved out after 2nd week for another place and broke the lease at end of the month. When I came to visit her before she broke the lease, she told me my boyfriend and I could stay at this house as a quiet “up north vacation” for just two of us. She doesn’t mention any haunting to us or tell us reason why she moved out. We got there and I immediately felt like someone was watching us as soon as we placed our foot into the house. I ignored this feeling because I thought I was just overly paranoid for no reason and it was at night time. This feeling of being watched doesn’t stop at our bedtime and it came from one corner next to closet that was facing the bed if you stood there. I finally told my boyfriend I have a very strong feeling something was there watching us from that corner. We don’t see anything but I can see a black apparition with white glowing eyes in my head (hard to explain what it’s like seeing something that’s not there). He was like, don’t be silly and I am always here to protect you. So I went to sleep with my eyes shut all night with no peeking. For some reasons I believed I would see glowing white eyes if I ever opened my eyes, so I just don’t ever dare to peek and risk ruining my night freaking out if I saw something. The next morning I had enough and told him to get outta here ASAP.
