Couple believes Provo apartment haunted by ghost

What exactly is haunted anyway? With Halloween just past and all this past hype about ghosts mysteriously appearing and meddling with our personal things is getting just a little too fictional, as far as I'm concerned.

On my quest to find a real haunted story in Provo, I was told a variety of farfetched stories. Among these story tellers were Lisa and Kurt Swensen.

In their apartment, where they've lived for a year, they've seen and heard every classic sign pointing to a haunting, except the ghost itself.

In the stillness of the night, you can hear the tapping and creeping of their apartment's unseen occupant.

"Our CD player has turned on by itself in the middle of the Led Zeppelin CD, on full volume, while we were sleeping in the other room, " Lisa said.

Kurt says the door to the house is possessed.

"It opens and closes by itself. "

I'd rather use the word possessed to explain the reason 6-6-6 (the sign of the devil) appears on their microwave screen periodically. They've even got a story for those of you, like me, who have an unexplainable fear of clowns.

"We've got a baby mobile with clown faces that has turned on by itself in the middle of the night and we had never winded it, " they say.

Kurt and Lisa say they've become used to living with the ghost. Lisa said whenever something weird happens, she'll say "Oh -- it's the ghost ". They don't fear their extra roommate. It's never done anything to harm them.
