And in one of the apartment units, a suicide where a single mother overdosed on pain medication leaving her two year old to fend for herself. The child eventually died of starvation. The mother’s body was found on the bed. The child’s body was found on the floor next to the bed. It is unknown whether the overdose was accidental or intentional. When this particular apartment is empty the occupants of the downstairs apartment can hear the pitter patter of little feet walking up and down the upstairs unit. On occasion, a woman can be heard crying. Loud thumps can also be heard. Lights turn on and off by themselves and the toilet will flush on it’s own. An occupant of the downstairs apartment noted that her young daughter told her “she was playing with a little girl”. Believing that the child had an imaginary playmate, the mother discounted her little daughter’s claims. Until one evening while the mother was sitting in the living room watching TV and her little girl was playing in the hallway with a small toy, she saw her daughter toss the small toy across the hallway into the front bedroom. The door had been left open. Then she heard her daughter talk to this imaginary friend to “give it back”. To the mother’s surprise, something or someone tossed the small toy back to her daughter. The mother kept watching and realized that there really was “someone or something” there. On another occasion while sleeping, she felt the touch of little fingers playing with her toes or gently tugging at her blankets. The apartment where the “suicide” took place is constantly vacant. Tenants seem to come and go and never stay longer than three years. And when the apartment is occupied, the “occurrences” diminish and or are none existent until the apartment is vacant again.
