CINCINNATI, OHIO: Five-year-old Luke Ruehlman of Cincinnati, Ohio, says that he was born again and even knows how he died in his previous life. He persistently claims he is Pam Robinson, an African American woman who died in a 1993 fire at the Paxton Hotel in Chicago.

Erik Ruehlman, the mother of little Luke, claimed that when her child first mentioned a mysterious woman named Pam at the age of two, she was spooked, The Sun reports. She asked him in confusion who Pam was, and he responded with a truly disturbing answer. The whole Ruehlman family was puzzled. They had never traveled to Chicago with their son before, and none of them knew Pam.

"He turned to me and said, 'Well, I was,'" she told Fox 8. "[He said] 'Well, I used to be, but I died and I went up to heaven. She continued of her son, "I saw God, and then eventually, God pushed me back down and I was a baby and you named me Luke.'"

Additionally, the Ruehlman family stated that their son had informed them that he had "traveled by train to Chicago." After doing some investigation, Erika was horrified to learn that Pam Robinson was one of the 19 victims of a hotel fire that occurred approximately 30 years ago. Luke asserts that he can recall dying in 1993 by jumping from a burning building before being resurrected after having "met God." Erika said that her son would frequently reveal other unsettling truths from his prior existence. "He used to say, 'When I was a girl, I had black hair' or he would say, 'I used to have earrings like that when I was a girl,'" she said.

Erika asserts that she has evidence to support her son's astonishing claims—facts that he is unable to have learned on his own. Luke's mother unearthed an old news article describing Pamela Robinson who perished in a fire at the city's Paxton Hotel in 1993 after Luke revealed that he used to go by the name Pam when he lived in Chicago.

Luke's extraordinary allegations were looked into by 'The Ghost Inside My Child' producers, a TV program about paranormal investigations. Luke was shown a page full of images of black women in their 30s, one of which was the late Pamela Robinson, on show video. According to the video, when asked to choose Pamela, he made the proper decision the first time. This was sufficient to persuade Erika to get in touch with Pamela's relatives in order to learn more about her. She claimed they revealed more about her personality, including some unsettling parallels to her kid. Erika mentioned that her son enjoys playing the keyboard and is a fan of Stevie Wonder, for instance, just like Pamela.
