When Christopher Wanliss from Nevada bought his home, he had no idea that he was about to make the discovery of a lifetime. It turns out that his property was hiding a dark tunnel that remained hidden for years. Wanliss didn’t realize that once he started to venture out to explore the mysterious finding lurking under his house, his life would never be the same.
He Had Purchased the Home of His Dreams
Christopher Wanliss from Nevada had just purchased his dream home and he was very excited. The home was everything he always dreamed of, and more… or so he thought. But one day, he went for a walk around his property and discovered something he was never meant to find.
The House Was in the Middle of Nowhere
Wanliss’ home was on top of 16.5 hectares of woodland fields. The house was a little bit isolated, but he didn’t mind one bit. All the extra space was just what he had been looking for. But he didn’t realize that there was something sinister in the fields waiting for him. Perhaps, if Wanliss would’ve never decided to investigate further, things would’ve turned out a lot different.
He Went Looking for Trouble in the Woods
As he continued exploring the wooded area, Wanliss became aware of the trees that had lost their outer layers as a result of the harsh weather. But this didn’t bother him at all because it made the trees even more beautiful somehow. As he was walking around the property, he suddenly felt like he heard something. This paralyzed him for a second. Was someone or something singing to him?
He Was Lured By An Unusual Melody
He whipped his head to one side and then the other and smiled as he realized that the noise was coming from the trees above him. He was just witnessing the pure sound of a group of birds singing in the forest. They were serenading him and he didn’t mind one bit, until he saw something that made him stop dead in his tracks.
The Unknown Object Was Small and Dark
At first glance, it seemed like something small and dark was hiding in the underbrush. Was it a bear or some kind of small plant? As he went in for a closer look, he realized he couldn’t have been more wrong. Despite some initial hesitation, he felt the strong urge to investigate further, almost as if some force was pulling him against his will.
His Curiosity Had a Shocking Consequence
Wanliss lost his step for a second and gasped as he stumbled. He went tumbling down about 3 feet, but he was okay. He got up and started looking at the thing that had piqued his curiosity, except it wasn’t a living thing at all.
He Thought His Mind Was Playing Tricks on Him
At first, he thought that he was hallucinating. He did fall, after all, but he was sure that he hadn’t hit his head. And yet, there it was right in front of him. But he wasn’t sure how such a thing could even exist in his property. What was it that left him so shaken up?
The Mysterious Construction Left Him Puzzled
There it was, staring him in the face. A dark mine that looked very old and rundown. But was it abandoned? He knew that going inside an abandoned mine was risky. If there was a cave-in out there, there might not be anyone around to help him if he got hurt. But despite knowing that he should’ve turned around and reported the discovery to the police, he still ventured out on his own and went in.
The Mine was Covered in Darkness
As Wanliss went into the mine, he immediately realized that it was too dark because it was covered in moss. So, he ran back to the house to get a flashlight and rushed back with excitement. But he had made a serious mistake that he would come to regret very soon.
The Cave Walls Weren’t Steady Enough
He had only brought a flashlight and three batteries just in case. But as he touched the walls, he felt how damp they were and worried that the walls and ceilings in the cave would come crumbling down on him. But when he aimed the flashlight at the walls, they lit up. What was that unusual spark on the wall?
There Was an Unusual Spark in the Walls
The walls seemed to be lit up, but there was no other light source inside the cave except for his flashlight. Wanliss assumed that it could be gold. But then he looked at the ground and saw something that threatened to put an end to his exploration mission in the blink of an eye.
He Was Concerned About the Stagnant Water
His footprint had made a 4-inch indentation in the soil and there were puddles of water all around him. This worried him for a moment because stagnant water in mines could release toxic gases. Was he doomed?
The Water Contained a Possible Danger
He didn’t think the mine could be this dangerous, but he was starting to realize his life was at risk if he kept going. Then he saw that the water was continuing to flow. There was no indication of stagnation. But when he looked straight ahead, he got really worried.
He Wasn’t Alone in the Mine
He couldn’t see a light or anything at the end of the tunnel, but he knew someone or something was lurking ahead since noises echoed throughout the mine. So, he decided to use the noise as a beacon, which turned out be a very bad idea.
He Heard Voices Ahead
He held his flashlight up and tried to focus on the noise up ahead which sounded a bit like metal parts and machinery mixed in with some voices. He decided to call out to see if anyone was out there, but the only response he got was his own echo. And yet, there were signs that someone had been here. But where they still here?
Someone Had Been Inside the Mine
Walking around the mine, he started noticing chains hanging on the walls as well as a ventilation system in place. Then he felt the temperature drop and a presence looming nearby, but he couldn’t see who it was, so he followed the water on the ground. Was someone using the mine as a home?
The Walls Started Closing in On Him
He had walked 150 feet into the mine when he suddenly started feeling claustrophobic. It didn’t help that he had this odd feeling that he was being watched, too. He couldn’t take it anymore, so he ran towards the entrance, but could he get out before they got to him?
He Called His Real Estate Agent For Help
He escaped the mine and made it home. Once he was there, he called his real estate agent, who told him his house was home to a lot of mining sites in the area. Then Wanliss told him about the sparkling stuff on the walls and his realtor promised to send someone to take a look at the mine. But that’s when strange things started happening in his kitchen.
The Lights in His House Indicated a Problem
The lights in the kitchen began to flicker and then they cut out completely. Wanliss flipped the switch on and off, but the lights didn’t come on. So, he reached into his pocket, grabbed his flashlight, and started looking for the circuit breaker to see if a fuse had blown.
Something Strange Was Happening at Home
He tried flipping various switches to see if the lights would come on again, but they didn’t. There was nothing to suggest that a fuse had blown either. And then, just like that, the lights came back on. He was relieved until the doorbell rang. Who could it have been?
A Stranger Arrived to Hear His Story
The real estate agent had sent Mr. Rudall to check out Wanliss’ property. He told him everything about his experience inside the cave, but Mr. Rudall wanted to see the unusual sparkling substance on the mine wall for himself.
The Sparkle in the Cave Grew Brighter
Wanliss took Rudall to the site. Once they were there, he shined his flashlight on the mine’s walls. The sparkle was even brighter this time. Then Rudall turned to Wanliss and gave him the answers he had been looking for.
The Miners Had Left Something Valuable Behind
Rudall told Wanliss that this was an abandoned gold mine, but for some odd reason, the gold hadn’t been touched. Wanliss knew that the miners wouldn’t have left so much gold behind, so he figured something terrible had happened here. But what?
A Lot of Rumors and Stories Centered Around the Cave
Rudall explained to him that there had been a lot of rumors and stories about the miners and the mines in the area, but it all sounded like fiction to Wanliss and what he wanted were answers, but to get them he would have to head deeper than he had ever gone before.
There Was a Door at the End of the Tunnel
Wanliss couldn’t help but feel like the answers to this grim mystery could be found at the end of the mine, so he walked 600 feet into the mine. That’s when he saw a mysterious door. He knocked on it but no one answered, of course. Then he reached for the handle and opened the door, and what he saw made his heart stop.
Wanliss Wasn’t the Only One in the Mine
He shined a flashlight and noticed that there was furniture there along with some extra junk. But Wanliss wondered why someone would leave all of their belongings there. Was someone living in the mine? Then he saw something that made his theory way more plausible.
He Discovered a Mysterious Hideaway
There was a rusty bed spring nearby and a brick hideaway. Whoever was using this space must have been hiding something valuable. He took a look inside the hideaway, but it was empty. Then he noticed a handwritten message on the wall inside the hideaway. But what did it mean?
He Found Four Unusual Scratches on the Wall
When Wanliss shined the flashlight at the handwriting, he realized it was 4 vertical lines that had been scratched into the wall. When he touched the scratches, he figured that someone had used their fingers to leave their mark. Then something new caught his attention and it gave him goosebumps.
He Snapped Photos While Someone Lurked
He took a look at the opposite wall and saw a message he couldn’t read. So, he snapped a photo so he could study it later. Then, he heard something that made him realize he wasn’t the only one in the mine. So, he started running.
He Started Googling Haunted Mines
Wanliss ran for his life until he was out of breath. Once he was back at his house, he went straight to his study and started googling haunted mines. But he had a weird feeling that whatever had been in the mine had followed him home. Every time he turned around, there was an odd presence following his every move. Was he hallucinating?
Someone Wanted to Come Into His House
His Google search pointed to an unlikely course of action, but he didn’t want to do it. Then, he heard a knock on the door. He wasn’t expecting company, so who could it have been? Was it someone from the real estate agency?
His camera Started Acting Funny
Wanliss walked out of his study, through the kitchen and towards the front door, but as he did, his camera made an odd whirring sound. He picked it up and noticed that his photos had been deleted. So, he decided to head back to the mine and figure out what was going on.
He Went to Confront the Mystery of the Mine
Wanliss walked into the mine, but then his flashlight started to malfunction, so he used the puddles of water as a guide to get to the heart of the mine. Then, he heard a weird metallic noise and decided to confront whatever was inside.
Suddenly, He Heard a Strange Noise
Halfway through his journey into the mine, his ears were overwhelmed by the metal noise, which was driving him mad and then it stopped. The mine was silent once again, and then he saw something he was afraid he couldn’t escape from.
The Cave Started Attacking Him
The chains inside the cave started swinging as if they had a life of their own and the sound of gushing water grew stronger. Then he saw a wave of water heading towards him, so he ran away towards the light, unsure of what else he would find inside the cave.
The Mysterious Light at Home Terrified Him
He made it out of the cave and headed home, but was startled when he realized that the lights in his kitchen were on. Had he forgotten to turn them off before he left? Had someone broken into his home while he was in the mine?
He Looked Everywhere for the Home Invader
He walked inside the house and cautiously checked for intruders one room at a time. Anyone could have been lurking behind a piece of furniture or a door. After looking around the house, he concluded that he was all alone. Walniss realized that perhaps, he left the lights on by mistake. Then he resumed his online research, but that’s when his computer stopped working. What was happening?
A Mysterious Force Was Tugging at Him
Suddenly, he felt something pulling at his feet. He was startled, but realized that these supernatural events were likely the result of toxic gases from the mine’s stagnant water. So, he drove to the nearest cafe to get some more answers.
He Sought the Help of a Paranormal Expert
He googled the nearest tarot reader and one double espresso later; he drove there to get some answers. The psychic started chanting the sound he heard in the mine, only it sounded like music now. Startled, he ran out and drove to his mother’s house. Then something really bizarre happened.
A Lot of Unanswered Questions Remain
Wanliss’ real estate agents never heard from him ever again, so his mother was left in charge of overseeing the sale of the house. Did Wanliss have a supernatural experience? Was the mine haunted by something otherworldly? The world may never know.
