Rickie Traeger: Do Landowners Have To Disclose To New Homeowners if Someone Passed Away On Their Land?

  • Rickie 




I want to first wish my grandma a Happy 84th Birthday.  Happy Birthday Grandma!

I know that some stuff I post, some do not agree with my opinions. That is fine, because at times I do not agree with other peoples as well. That is life…   However, if you disagree with my opinions and posts, feel free to contact me. I am always happy to learn new things and have an open mind about things. Yes, I may have formed my own opinion on things, but that doesn’t mean that I am not open to hearing others opinions as well.

So you are probably asking yourself, why did I mention that. Well what I am about to write below, is very controversial with some people. Especially to those who do not have an open mind…  Ghosts!

Yup, you would think living in 2020 a lot of people would have open minds. But in reality, many have their own opinions and don’t have an open mind or want to hear other peoples opinions. Sad but true.

So here it goes, short and simple.

I have been doing Rockford Scanner for well over a decade now.  I have worked numerous scenes.  Sadly, some of those have been fatal scenes. I do not like working those types of scenes at all.  Very sad scenes.  I can recall almost every fatal scene I have worked over the years.  And as I go about doing my daily life, I pass by the locations of some scenes I have worked over the years.  And I can’t help but think of the scene, as I pass by the locations.  I see locations that have developed over the years, with new houses and other buildings that were built on the same land that a person passed away on. But that brings me to the main part of this post.

When you buy a house, they are supposed to tell the potential new owners if someone has passed away in the home.  I think that is a good thing. But come to find out many realtors do not do that. They said they don’t want to lose a potential buyer. It is crazy, but that is besides the point.  My point of this post is…

Some scenes I have worked that were fatal, were not inside residences at all.   Over the years the land develops and homes are built on the land that someone has passed away on.  New houses that are being built on land, on the very spot the person has passed away at.

Do the land owners, or the people selling the homes have to tell these new home owners that a person passed away on that land, the very spot their house sits on?   Or do they not have to tell the new home owners?

Because what if a new home owner bought a house and begin to experience paranormal activity.  And they know the house is new, so they can not research the house to see if anyone passed away in it, to explain the possible paranormal activity that is going on.  So what options do these new homeowners have, when they want to research and try to see what is causing the paranormal activity?  Realtors are “supposed” to tell the new homeowners.  But what if it is a new house, are they supposed to tell the new homeowners someone passed away on the land?

I like to hear everyones opinion on this topic.   I know some do not agree with the paranormal topic. And I respect that. But I ask that you have an open mind and listen to others opinions and questions on the topic.








Rickie Traeger: We All Take Life For Granted…




First and foremost, my condolences to the family and friends of the victims in the double fatal accident a bit ago in Rockford. 

Please keep the family and friends and 1st responders in your thoughts and prayers.

There was a rollover accident in the 2100 block of 16th st a little bit ago.

2 people passed away and a 3rd victim was transported to a local ER.

I always hate working fatal scenes.   I can tell you every fatal scene I have ever worked over the years.

They are always heartbreaking to work.

We all go about our lives every day and do not realize or grasp the concept of how precious life really is, until it is too late.

Each and every time I work a fatal scene, it is sad. But it also reminds me of how lucky we are to be alive and to have those we love around us.

Also at the same time, I realize that some family is about to have the worst day in their life 🙁

I know doing what I do (Journalist) I have worked many fatals over the years.

And I can tell you I always dread working fatal scenes.  By far the most heartbreaking scenes to work.

This scene was a double fatal, possible triple. 2 Confirmed fatals.

Words cannot describe working a fatal scene.  My heart goes out to all those that are involved.

It is a grim reminder that we all take life for granted. The most cherished thing, and we don’t realize just how quick it can be gone.

Please take a second and hug those that you love, and tell them you love them.

And to keep all those involved in this horrific scene, in your thoughts and prayers








Rickie Traeger: I have been thinking a lot about my NDE a lot lately




So I have been thinking a lot about my NDE a lot lately.   

I have no idea why, but over the last few weeks I have been thinking about my NDE experience.   Take for granted there is not a day that goes by that I do not think about it.  But lately I been thinking a lot more about it.

I have been thinking about how there is the possibility of the afterlife.  I can not explain my experience. I can only tell you what happened to me. I do not expect people to believe it. It is a hard thing to wrap your head around.  But I know I experienced it.  So all I ask is, that you keep an open mind.

I been thinking about the experience.   About what happened and how to explain it.  In all honesty I have no idea how to explain it.  You just have to experience it, to understand it.  And I do not want anyone to go through that.

But I sit here and think about things and the possibilities that may exist.  So, theoretically if we all die and if there is an afterlife or do we become ghosts.

I have always struggled with the idea of religion and God, since the experience.   Before my NDE experience, I did not really believe in God and the afterlife.  Frankly I just laughed at anyone who said otherwise.

After I had my NDE, I do believe there is SOMETHING that happens.  I struggle to try to comprehend if there is a God? Are angels real, what was that I encountered? Is it all just in our heads? When we die do we really have this new experience or is it just something that goes in in our brains? I mean there is a lot about the human brain we have to learn. So is a NDE another plane of life, a mental image, just what is it?

I struggle asking myself if there really is a God.  Why would God do some stuff that he does? And then how do you explain a NDE and my experience?   I don’t really know how to explain what happened, but it did.

I have been finding myself questioning God.  And I have no idea why I been thinking about my NDE a lot more here recently, when I haven’t thought about the NDE for awhile.  Yes, I think of it daily but nothing like to this in depth.

You know what I should do, is find some other people that have had their own NDE.
And ask them how they feel and to hear their stories and feelings.
I think it would be good to hear other peoples NDE.

If you or someone you know has had a NDE, please take a minute and contact me.
