IDENTIFIED? Victim #13: Beneath the Surface: The Drowning Ghost’s Story

IDENTIFIED? Victim #13: Beneath the Surface: The Drowning Ghost’s Story

April 14, 2024

 

In the traumatic continuation of “Candle Face Victim # 13: Beneath the Surface: The Drowning Ghost’s Story,” my unsettling encounters with the spirit world continue. Today, intriguing feedback on my journal entry has deepened the mystery surrounding my nocturnal visitor from late December 2023 and again on February 13, 2024. The commenter believes that Victim # 13 is a man from news stories from the late 1990s who vanished while boating with his children in Lake Travis near Austin, TX. He remembers these news stories from his high school years at Lake Travis High School.

 

This mention struck a nerve, compelling me to search online for “missing person Lake Travis late 1990s.” I discovered a KXAN article titled “Unsolved: The Mysteries Lurking in Lake Travis,” which detailed several drownings, including that of William Crumpacker, who disappeared in 1998 while camping with his sons. This detail resonated deeply because ‘William’ is the name the spirit used in a ghost story he narrated during a boating trip, the same night he encountered Candle Face, leading to his tragic drowning.

 

Intrigued by these uncanny parallels, I dug deeper and learned that William Crumpacker was a Dell marketing manager who went missing under mysterious circumstances after a late-night swim from his boat in Little Devil’s Cove on Lake Travis while his children slept onboard. His body was never found.

 

In late December 2023, a spirit matching William’s description visited me, recounting his tragic end in Lake Travis. I initially neglected to record his visit in my journal. However, after a startling second encounter in February 2024—where the spirit rebuked my inattention by striking me twice and vomiting in my mouth—I diligently documented his story. The disturbing details of the first visit were shared in my January 11, 2024, interview with Beyond Believe Talk.

 

Now, as each night arrives, urging me to believe and respect the stories that waft through the shadows of my home, I find myself pondering the identity of this persistent spirit. Could it truly be William Crumpacker? And if so, what steps should I take next? I'm at a loss without guidance from the spirits and direct communication thwarted by Candle Face’s punitive measures.

 

As I brace for whatever may come next, I reach out to you, my readers, for guidance. Have any of you encountered Candle Face or spirits demanding acknowledgment? Your stories and insights could illuminate the path as I navigate this shadowed journey.
