This cropped portion of a photo was sent to us by a man in Sikeston, Mo. who’s house was infested with spirit or ghost orbs. He had many ghost stories to tell.The photo is an example of just some of the strange paranormal disturbances he and his wife have been experiencing recently. Apparitions of this quality are rarely caught in photos and I have never seen a supposed face associated with spirit or ghost orbs look this detailed and striking. By far the best example of a ghost orb I have ever seen. And one of the strangest ghost stories.

I ran across all this by chance one day when I over heard talk of someone saying that their house was haunted and having strange photos of orbs and faces. I found out who this person was and quickly contacted him. I wanted to hear these ghost stories of his.

 

 

Mr.Eldridge’s Ghost Stories

The man supposedly experiencing these paranormal disturbances, Mr.Eldritdge confirmed that indeed his house was haunted. The haunting for the most part came in the form of ghost or spirit orbs as they are commonly known. Mr.Eldridge described witnessing up to 20 or 30 of these ghost orbs inside of his house at one time and “thousands” outside his house around the trees on a particular night. Mr.Eldridge confirmed that the phenomena only seems to start at night. The more recent ghost orb incidents were preceded for years prior by a sense of presence says Mr.Eldridge, that his wife and dog did not seem to pick up on. It wasn’t until they stood together and watched the orbs that had manifested in their house that his feeling was confirmed.

In 2007 Mr.Eldritdge claims he had caught a man robbing his home and when the thief pulled a gun on him he was forced to shoot and kill him in what he claimed was self defense. Mr.Eldridge made it clear he thought it was the vengeful ghost of this man returning that was behind the paranormal disturbances in his home. In fact Mr.Eldridge says that the eerie face emerging from the ghost orb in that picture is undoubtedly the face of the alleged robber.

The official news story can be found here http://www.semissourian.com/story/1721260.html . You may find that some of the details are very interesting to say the least. For instance neighbors reported hearing two shots, and one more as police sirens were approaching. According to Neal Boyd the prosecutor in Mr.Eldridge’s manslaughter case:

“Sometime after the first two shots, Mr. Eldridge returned the (allegedly stolen) long weapons back inside his house and made a 911 call to police reporting a man at his residence had a heart attack. Shortly after this call, a third shot was heard and reported by a neighbor,”

Talking to Mr.Eldridge it became apparent to me that he was clearly disturbed, perhaps by guilt. According to him:

I have a photograph of two orbs outside, one of which has his face in it looking at me, busted lip and all from when I took him down.

 “Ghost Orbs” in Old Ghost Stories

So what are ghost orbs exactly? There is nothing new about ghost orbs other than in name. In fact this phenomena has been around as long as we have. Known by many names such as “ghost lights” or “spook lights” among the more recent ghost stories. Long ago these ghostly lights were known as “will o’ the wisps” or “ignis fatuus” (foolish fire). In ancient times some believed these to be non-human elementals , faerie. or other supernatural beings that are tricksters that like to do things such as lead unwary travelers off of their path and cause them to get lost and confused. This was the subject of many ghost stories

Some ghost stories used to associate their presence with the guarding of a nearby treasure. Others say they lure with the promise of said treasure.

Is there anything to be learned from the old myths and tales of trickster spirits? Are these will o’ the wisps the same thing as ghost orbs? I believe it is possible.

Lets not forget that Sikeston, Mo. where this phenomena is taking place, is no stranger to orbs and lights. In 1973 they were allover the skies confusing people in a very different way. This place also lay almost directly on the 37th parallel which is notorious for many types of unexplained phenomena. We will explore this more later.

  1. Bryce, Your accepting what was written in the news paper as fact, well they are not. They are damn lies in fact. I suppose you heard about John Blakely using “made up evidence” and out right lying to put an innocent man in prison for over ten years. The prosecutor knew all about it, they both should be in prison paying for the years they took away from an innocent man. There is no telling what they would have told a jury if I had decided to go to trial and fight the first degree murder charge they stuck me with. The fact is I caught a friggen thief stealing my guns and I took him down with my bare hands. If he had given up then he would be alive today. His decision to pull a weapon from his pants in order to get away cost him his life. As for the comment about me being disturbed, do you think you would be as calm as a cucumber after fighting a man over a gun and then having to kill him. Your dam right I was disturbed. How stupid was that detective, I’ll tell you, He was very stupid. That’s why he no longer can carry a gun or a badge. If I ever hear that he is working as a police officer somewhere I will see to it that he is fired from that job. I would like to beat the hell out of him for that matter. The truth of what happened is below….The prosecutor and detective LIED to the paper and the manager of the paper, Don Culbertson knew it……….
    My name is Robert Eldridge, I in fact never plead guilty to anything. I accepted what is called an Alford plea. The judge in the case refused to use the words guilty plea at anytime during this proceeding even correcting himself several times after using the wrong term of guilty plea. The paper failed to mention that I had given this man a job earlier in the day painting my foundation at which time I fed him lunch, gave him some clothing, some that was new, and paid him for the work that he did. The story states that there was two shots inside the house, that is false. There was one shot fired in the house and that occurred while I was attempting to carry my shotguns back in to my home. The same thing happened outside but the story of any bullet hitting the house across the street is false. The neighbors even told the police that the damage on the house was already there and the police never located a bullet. They claimed that it disintegrated on contact into a wood structure house. That of course is ridiculous. They stated that I called the police after shots were fired to say the man was having a heart attack. That too is a false statement by the former detective and former prosecutor. The guy, while in the house using the restroom fell and complained that he was having chest pains but he left and I saw him on a bicycle riding off. I called 911 and told them about the mans complaint which was before he re-entered the back door which he had unlocked while inside using the restroom. He later returned, entered the back door and took the guns out of the house. I had fallen asleep on the sofa and after hearing a noise, got up and retrieved a 25 caliber pistol from the bedroom and walked through the house. After seeing that no one was inside I noticed the back door slightly open. I put the pistol into my right front pocket, went outside and looked around the corner of the house when I saw the man riding away on the bicycle holding the guns that I could see pointing up in the air. I immediately chased the robber down, grabbed him and pulled him off of the bike and took him to the ground. There were pictures taken that clearly showed the spot on the ground where he landed, as I landed on top of him. When we hit the ground we rolled towards the street and I ended up right next to him. He immediately reached down to his waistband and grabbed a pistol, which turned out to be my wives pistol. I reached and grabbed ahold of his hand that the gun was in and attempted to take it from him and I began to scream for “help” as loud as I could scream. I yelled out help 6 or 7 times when he managed to pull his hand with the pistol out of my grasp. I immediately reached into my pocket, pulled the 25 caliber pistol and fired one shot. The robber was pushing himself up but soon fell face down. I reached over him and grabbed the pistol, got up and ran into the house and called 911. All of these discrepancies are a result of the detective John Blakely who recently had his badge and gun taken away for changing the story of a different murder case to fit what he wanted the jury to believe. The judge said that he had never seen so much unproven evidence that changed throughout the trial as Det. Blakely put forth. That man was released from prison after serving more than 10 years. Blakely who should have gone to prison himself was placed on the fire division duty but later fired from that. I too am a victim of Mr. John Blakely as he told my attorney that a bullet has disintegrated, and that there was two shots inside my house. He also claimed that I shot the robber as he fled on the bicycle which was disproven by the autopsy when the found that the bullet had traveled from left to right and downward after striking the man and leaving powder burns on his clothing. Consistent with us both being on the ground next to each other.
