If you are into ghost stories, there is no doubt you have probably heard about the ‘Dear David’ ghost story that surfaced a few months back. The story comes from Adam Ellis, an artist for Buzzfeed.
Ellis first spoke about the strange happenings in his apartment a few months ago on Twitter. “So, my apartment is currently being haunted by the ghost of a dead child and he’s trying to kill me,” Ellis wrote.
Ellis described the ghostly child as a dis-formed child that sits in a green rocking chair. Ellis suffers from sleep paralysis, which makes some patients see strange visions while their minds are trapped between waking and sleeping. That’s when Ellis described seeing Dear David.
Ellis says Dear David wasn’t threatening at first, but another spirit in his dreams revealed the ghost would answer two questions, and kill anyone who asked a third.
When Ellis saw Dear David again, he asked, “Dear David, how did you die?” The spirit said a store shelf fell on his head. “Dear David, was it an accident?” No, the ghost replied, someone pushed the shelf over.
“Who pushed the shelf?” Ellis asked before he could catch himself. Since asking that third question, Ellis has reported lots of strange things happening in his apartment.
And now Ellis is back in the spotlight with what he calls photographic proof of the little boy who is haunting him.
Over the last few months, Ellis has been documenting strange happenings in his apartment, such as his cats waiting outside his bedroom door as if someone was on the other side. Only happening after midnight of course.

Since then, Ellis has recorded waking up with strange bruises on his arms, recorded objects moving on their own on hidden cameras, taped audio of what sounds like footsteps in his room late at night, and other spooky phenomena.
Ellis’ most recent attempt to “catch” Dear David was quite successful, but also super terrifying. While he was sleeping, Ellis set up a camera programmed to snap a picture every 60 seconds. He says that the first 100 show Ellis sleeping in an empty room. But then…”suddenly, he was there. Standing on the chair at the foot of the bed staring at me.”
AND THEN…“He was on the bed, inches from me, staring down at me sleeping,” Ellis says.
“Here’s the final photo on the scroll… I’m at a loss for words. That malformed ear, that stringy hair. I didn’t even know what to think.” – Adam Ellis
