Farmer Wayne Lund sees dead people. No, he isn’t crasy – or if he is, he isn’t the only one.
He is adamant he has a sixth sense and believes he has discovered the presence of spirits on his Mt Mort property.
It wasn’t until this month, when an Ipswich clairvoyant visited the property, that Mr Lund stopped doubting himself.
“Everyone tells me I’m nuts – even my wife,” Mr Lund said.
As soon as the psychic, who wishes to remain anonymous, set foot on the property she started trembling and describing the awful fate that she believes met a family on the property in the 1930s.
Clearly disturbed by the images she could see, the clairvoyant claimed a couple, their pregnant daughter and two other young children were murdered.
“Their bodies were dumped. It was horrific,” she said.
Mr Lund was shocked and amazed.
“That’s exactly what I’ve seen and written it all down,” he told The Queensland Times.
The woman added: “They want to be laid to rest.”
The accused? Well, the clairvoyant believes it was a man of Irish descent who roamed the land and had no motive for the slaying.
Mr Lund said every time he went near the creek on his property he became unsettled, as did the hunters and workers who occasionally crossed the section of his paddock.
“I feel like I’m having a heart attacj when I come down here. It’s so real and heartbreaking,” he said.
“No one likes coming down here. They all come back shaking or saying it gave them the jeebies.”
Mr Lund has never felt comfortable sharing his story.
That was until a recent request from Ipswich Councillor David Pahlke printed in The Queensland Times, asking for people who have ghost stories from the Ipswich area to come forward.
“I wanted to and still do want to hear from people who have ghost stories so we can start logging them, researching them and talking about them,” Cr Pahlke said.
“Somewhere down the path we might document the ghosts of Ipswich.”
“I’m sure there are many more stories like this out there.”
If you have any information about Mr Lund’s property that may help solve this mystery, or have a ghost story you would like to share, contact Cr Pahlke on 0419 705 376.
