Recently, headlines were made after a mother whose son passed away claimed the ghost of her son returned to the family’s home. Their security cameras reportedly captured some kind of transparent figure in their kitchen.
Jennifer Hodge’s son, Robbie, of Atlanta, Georgia passed away a couple years ago from something that has unfortunately been taking a lot of lives. It was an accidental overdose on what was believed to be fake Xanax, at the young age of 23. It could have been Fentanyl-laced, which has been happening a lot lately.
The grieving mother of two has spent the past couple years trying to come to grips with what happened, and then she received a notification on her phone from the security system in her home apparently, and it read “person spotted in entryway.”
Last week, Jennifer Hodge was watching television in bed with her daughter Lauren, 21, and she was about to fall asleep when her phone sent her the warning. Sounds like an excellent way to protect a person’s home, that security system and a weapon.
The notification at 11:51pm on January 5, 2019 said her entryway home security camera had been triggered, and the message said the camera “spotted a person.” The notification snapped a picture, and sent her a transparent mass shaped like a human figure. She claims this is the real photo.
So according to her story, the mother and daughter ran into the kitchen and nothing was disturbed, and there were no signs of a break-in.
She spoke to the media and explained that she believes the camera spotted his ghost, as his sun had suffered from “OCD, ADHD, anxiety, and addiction.” That might not be the most helpful way to look at a person’s psychological complex, pathologizing it with all those terms. A lot of people that age go through things like this, to underestimate the hard drug epidemic would be wrong but that’s a lot of “disorders.”
One article said the “ghost” looked like he was wearing pajamas. With all due respect and much love to the family, to me it looks like it is wearing white because they took this photo to give it to the media and make the story blow up. If this is real, film experts come forward: is this real?
The mother said:
“It’s just insane – I’m blown away. It’s just crazy. I was laying in bed watching TV with my daughter and I was just about asleep.
The phone was lay between us and I got this message notification saying someone was in the kitchen. She was like ‘Mum, there’s a person in the kitchen… Mum, that’s Robbie!’ I was stunned. And it did look just like him – beard and all.”
If they made this a story for a reason, it’s certainly respectable because the goal seems to be, supporting a charity him and his mother set up to help people suffering from addiction, just before he passed away.
His mother noted that he was a “giving, caring, loving human being,” and she’s trying to raise money to make that charity they founded together really happen.
She believes what she saw was a sign Robbie is at peace, if this really happened. She said:
“Now, I feel like he was letting me know he is happy in heaven. That brings me some comfort, but I still just think it’s weird. I’m in awe – why did this happen to me? I haven’t seen anything since and I had never seen a ghost before.
Does it look like Robbie? Yes. I would love to see anybody else’s camera where people might look transparent. This is just weird.”
She continued to explain that Robbie was a great kid, and he had suffered from addiction to heroin. She said the only thing they could track down is where he was purchasing Xanax.
The mother explained that together, the two had started a charity to try and turn real estate into a “way of saving lives and stopping addiction.” The cause is to be treated with the utmost respect, if you know how things are.
She even noted that they had won local and national awards for it. It’s called Realty4Rehab, and it can be found on Facebook at this link.
Regardless of if this story is real or not, hopefully it will support their charity. If that was the plan, it’s still respectable in my opinion.
Happy Birthday in Heaven, my dear son…..Robbie Hodge
