I’ve been doing a lot of research about what’s going on, looking for information on supernatural events, spell books, rumors of magic or demons, anything I can find. Today I was following a web trail and found something that could be connected, based on when and where it happened, close to the time and place my Great Grandfather and his army group encountered their ‘situation’, encountered Yog-Sothoth. It’s something deeply disturbing and, after nearly a century, still unexplained…
“The first sign of something amiss took place in late 1921, when the family maid suddenly quit, citing that the farm was haunted. It would take the Grubers until the end of March of 1922 to find a new maid
Also at the end of March, strange phenomenon began. Andreas would tell neighbors that one day he found strange footsteps leading from the forest to the farmhouse, but, oddly, there were no footprints going back into the forest. Soon after he began to hear the sound of footsteps in the attic. A set of keys went missing. A newspaper, not one subscribed to by the Grubers, was found nearby.” from ‘The Hinterkaifeck Murders
So much of this is familiar – strange, unexplained footprints, people terrified by strange occurrences, hearing sounds like footsteps coming from nowhere… It’s all so similar to what’s happening here, and it happened in Germany not long after my great-grandfather was there, but they all died horribly. Could that happen here? Is that what’s coming? Is this what my great-grandfather sacrificed himself to try to prevent?? Was this family a victim of a madman, or of something darker? Yog-Sothoth? Worse?
