“I died and came back as a baby”: The strange story of the 5-year-old boy who claims to be the reincarnation of a woman who died in 1993

This is one of those unusual stories that are too rare to ignore. Broadly speaking, it involves the assertion of a 5 year old who claims to have been an African-American woman who died in a fire in 1993 and reincarnated.

according to the chain Fox 2 From the city of Ohio in the United States, a boy named Luke Ruehlman has insisted, since he was only 2 years old, that in a previous life he was a woman named Pam.

Erika, the child’s mother, said that in her family they do not know anyone with that name, but the child has reiterated the story over and over again throughout his life. “One time he turned to me and said: Well, I was Pam. I used to be, but I died and went to heaven. I saw God and then eventually he pushed me back and I was a baby and you called me Luke,” Mrs. Ruehlman recalled.

Of course, the story does not stop there, since the boy began to explain a description of Pam’s appearance and to point out that she usually traveled by train to the city of Chicago, a place the child has never been to.

In that scenario, Erika Ruehlman ended up coming up with the story of Pam Robinson, one of the 19 victims of a fire at the Paxton Hotel in Chicago in 1993.

Together with the producers of a television program called “The Ghost Inside My Child” they carried out an investigation that managed to find the whereabouts of Pam’s family. From there, the child’s mother discovered alleged similarities between her son and Pam, including an affinity for Stevie Wonder’s music.

The last striking detail in the story is that the minor was given photographs of different African women. When asked to select Pam Robinson, she hit the right picture. Of course, all as part of the television show that has been viralized.
