A grieving mother has claimed her son’s ghost returned to the family home, after her security cameras captured a transparent figure in her kitchen.
Jennifer Hodge’s son Robbie, from Atlanta, Georgia, tragically died two years ago of an accidental drug overdose at the age of 23, after taking what was thought to be imitation Xanax.
The bereaved mother-of-two had spent the past two years coming to terms with the loss of her ‘caring’ son,
Last week, when lying in bed with her daughter watching TV, she received a notification on her phone from her security system reading ‘person spotted in entryway’
The pair had nearly drifted off to sleep before the alert came through, which shocked them into action. It was her entryway home security camera which had been triggered, and the system then sent a picture from the camera to her phone.
The message said the camera had ‘spotted a person’… but the image sent to Ms Hodge’s seems shows a transparent mass in the shape of a human figure.
Confused and alarmed, the mother and daughter ran to the kitchen, but found no signs of any kind of break-in.
Ms Hodges soon came to the conclusion that her security camera had in fact captured images of her son’s ‘ghost’, who had suffered with OCD, ADHD, anxiety, and addiction.
Below is the still from the security camera, which does fit the description:
Ms Hodge recalled in an interview:
“It’s just insane – I’m blown away. It’s just crazy. I was laying in bed watching TV with my daughter and I was just about asleep”
“The phone was lay between us and I got this message notification saying someone was in the kitchen. She was like ‘Mum, there’s a person in the kitchen… Mum, that’s Robbie!’”
I was stunned. And it did look just like him – beard and all.
His mother remembers her son as a ‘giving, caring, loving human being’ – the pair had even set up a charity to help people battling addiction prior to his death.
Happy Birthday in Heaven, my dear son…..Robbie Hodge
Far from being disturbed by what she saw that night, Ms Hodge said she thinks it was a sign Robbie is at peace, adding:
“Now, I feel like he was letting me know he is happy in heaven. That brings me some comfort, but I still just think it’s weird. I’m in awe – why did this happen to me? I haven’t seen anything since and I had never seen a ghost before.
Does it look like Robbie? Yes. I would love to see anybody else’s camera where people might look transparent. This is just weird.”
