Donna and her friend Gerri were co-workers and roommates in Southfield in the late 1970s. They furnished their apartment with ornate furniture that they bought from the classifieds along with some jewelry in a strange box. The apartment gave off a weird vibe, the cat didn't like it there and there were strange banging, scratching and crying sounds. Both women had experiences with a female apparition that mournfully opened the jewelry box and held one of the purchased necklaces.
During a week of violent thunderstorms both women experienced noises in the living room where they slept during a power outage. The next morning the trunk they had purchased was flung open and its contents scattered about the room. They decided to consult a Ouija board to see if they could communicate with and assuage the ghost. Hopefully there is a follow-up to this.
