A five-year-old from Ohio has vivid recollections of being killed in a fire as a 30-year-old woman. From the age of two, Luke Ruehlman from Cincinnati, Ohio has given strong indications that he remembers his previous life as a young black woman from Chicago named Pam who perished after she jumped from a burning building.

According to his parents he would often make references to being this woman by stating things such as “when I was a girl, I had black hair” or “I used to have earrings like that when I was a girl.” Luke even claims to remember the moment that his previous life ended and recalls the actual reincarnation process in which he was “pushed back down” to Earth as a newborn baby.

Incredibly, an investigation revealed that a woman named Pamela Robinson who lived in Chicago had actually died following a fire at the Paxton Hotel back in 1993, just as Luke had described. The boy’s case was investigated as part of a documentary entitled “The Ghost Inside My Child” in which an investigation team showed Luke a collection of images of women who were around the same age as Pamela, as well as one of her, and asked him if he was able to point her out.

To their amazement he was able to successfully pick out the correct photograph.

‘When I woke up, I was a baby and you named me Luke’: Mom claims her five-year- old son remembers his past life as a Chicago woman who died in a house fire

  • Luke Ruehlman, from Cincinnati, Ohio, made claims about his past life
  • Mother says he ‘remembered’ being Pam, 30, before he was born
  • Later pieced together than he was referring to real woman from Chicago
  • Pamela Robinson died when the Paxton Hotel caught fire in 1993
  • Said he recalls meeting God and being ‘pushed back down’ as baby boy
  • According to his mother, Luke’s story can be verified by the facts

Though the recollections have since stopped, Luke’s mother Erika told local station Fox8 how from the age of two Ruehlman would make references to his apparent alter ego.

At first, she said, he would simply name things Pam and seemed fixated with the name. Later, she said, he would start making references to his apparent past life as a female.

She said: ‘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 added that when confronted about who Pam could be, he said that he in fact used to be her, and said he remembered a bizarre process of reincarnation when he was ‘pushed back down’ to earth as a newborn.

He said: ‘Well, I used to be [Pam], but I died. I went up to heaven, and I saw God, and he pushed me back down and when I woke up, I was a baby and you named me Luke.’

According to Erika, her son’s claims were supported by facts he could not possibly have learned by himself.

After revealing that in his ‘former life’ as Pam he lived in Chicago, Erika found an old news story which mentioned a Pamela Robinson, who died when the Paxton Hotel in the city caught light in 1993.

An investigation by a paranormal investigations TV show also claimed to prove the veracity of Luke’s story.

In footage for the show The Ghost Inside My Child, Luke was shown a page full of pictures of black women in their 30s, only one of which was the dead Pamela Robinson.




When asked to pick out Pamela, the footage claims, he chose the right picture.

It was enough to convince Erika, who reached out to Robinson’s family and said they told her more about her personality which seemed to match Luke.

As examples, Erika said her son loves Stevie Wonder, as did Robinson, and also shares an enthusiasm for playing the keyboard, though her boy’s was a children’s version.

When contacted by Fox8, however, they declined to comment.
