Ghost wants justice,
‘possessed’ claims

BY ADRIAN NEMES III

A ghost seeking justice?

A 24-year-old woman from Zamboanga Del Sur who is employed as a salesgirl at a department store in Bacolod City claims she has been  possessed by the ghost of a 13-year-old girl who was brutally killed in the city.

The salesgirl, whose name is being withheld by the DAILY STAR,  said she  has been  seeing the ghost of the girl in  her work place  since December 13, and that she has experienced a lot of unexplained events.

She cited an incident when she had her picture taken, and when it was developed, a dark image could be seen beside her. When a computer technician tried to edit the photo and erase the image, her  own face became distorted, the salesgirl  said.

In  December, while she was at her workplace, the girl’s ghost appeared to her again and, all of a sudden, she felt heavy and lost consciousness, she added.

Her co-workers told her that her voice changed and that she became unruly. Seven security guards tried to subdue her but could not  pacify her, she said.

At her boarding house, on Valentine’s Day, she again fainted and  could not  remember what happened.

A man, who witnessed the alleged possession, said the ghost who possessed the salesgirl  introduced herself as “Lina,”  who saidshe was killed by construction workers in 2003 and her body was buried in what used to be a vacant lot in Bacolod, but is now occupied by a business establishment.

The ghost told them that her parents are “Lucito” and “Menita”, the witness said.

The salesgirl,  accompanied by a friend, went  to Brgy. Ma-ao,  Bago City,  where they sought the help of an “albolaryo (quack doctor)”, who told her to always wear a crucifix.

 Father Felix Pasquin, rector of the San Sebastian Cathedral in Bacolod City, said the salesgirl should seek spiritual help if she is indeed being possessed.*APN
