For instance, once when she could not find her keys in their usual place a paranormal researcher who had been to the house happened to call and Beach explained her dilemma.
“She said Walter probably took them and to tell him you want them back right away.”
When she did a voice told her to look under a bed and there the keys were — even though that place had been checked before.
Another time Walter wasn’t kidding around.
“One day as I got home all I could think about was basement, basement, basement — and as I pulled in the driveway I got really sick to my stomach,” Beach said. “So I went down to the basement and there was a vagrant down there.”
The La Salle County Sheriff’s Police were summoned.
"The paranormal investigator told Beach Walter made her sick as a warning,” Beach recalled.
“She said Walter takes care of me because I take care of the house.
“I replied I hoped he could find a different way to do it if it was necessary in the future.”
