A strange figure appeared in a photo taken at a Christmas event in a cemetery in New Jersey this Christmas. In the image posted on Facebook by the cemetery’s director, a ghostly aura is seen behind Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus while they are decorating and placing wreaths on headstones.

Volunteers gathered at the Historic Jersey City and Harsimus Cemetery in Jersey City on December 13 to celebrate National Wreaths Across America Day by decorating graves for veterans. Cemetery Director Eileen Markenstein was taking photos of the event and after she reviewed the images, she noticed a strange ghostly figure in one of them with Santa.

“If you look closely, you can see what looks like fingers on both sides of the white aura. I can’t explain it, but it sure makes me feel like the spirits are very happy!” Markenstein said.

In the photo, Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus are putting a wreath and decorations near a headstone when a mysterious phenomena appears behind Santa. Markenstein believes that the white blurry anomaly is a set of ghostly hands that are trying to reach out to Santa. The old gravestone is the burial place for two Civil War veterans, the Losey brothers.

Volunteers that participated in the event think that the anomaly is an angel or ghost. Markenstein points out that the anomaly has finger-like appendages reaching out to Santa. She believes that the white misty figure is the spirit of one of the Losey brothers.

Ghostly visitor appears in teen’s selfie

A teenager was taking photos of herself with her cell phone and after she reviewed the images, she noticed something strange in one of the photos with her. The girl’s mother sent the photo to the paranormal website Ghost Study to be analyzed.

Karisa Saunders of Tulsa, Oklahoma recently submitted a photo to Ghost Study that she believes might be proof of the supernatural. In the photo, an eerie face is seen peering over Saunders’ daughter Lauren.

“My daughter Lauren went to stay the night at a new friend’s house in Berryhill, Oklahoma and took this self-picture. It was a front snap shot picture, no mirror or anything to reflect. It looks like a man’s face to the left and her friend was sitting on the bed to the right of the picture. We are about to enlist the help of a medium who is a distant relative to help explain this strange appearance in the picture. My daughter took this photo with a Galaxy III cell phone. It might be relevant to mention that three family members have passed away in the last year. Her grandfather being one that died last,” Saunders said to Jim Eaton of Ghost Study.

Some people believe that the ghostly face might be caused by visual paredolia due to objects in the background or it could been edited in from a cell phone application. Other people think that it might actually be a spirit that is attached to the teenager.

This pic was two years prior to his diagnosis,” Day said.

Customer captures ghost of young girl at bar that mobster Al Capone frequented


A bartender of a restaurant that was once frequented by Al Capone shared a photo of a ghost that her customer took. In the image, a ghost of a young girl can be seen at the end of hallway near the bar. The photo was featured on an episode of David Scott’s “Believe” series.

Filmmaker and paranormal investigator David Scott and his paranormal research team IPRA traveled to Schiller Park, Illinois to explore The Great Escape restaurant and bar. The site of the restaurant was once a general store, post office, gas station, barber shop, pool hall, speakeasy, and a brothel. It was used by gangsters in the prohibition era. Mobster Al Capone was often seen in the bar in the 1920s.

Part of The Great Escape was built in 1889 and the original bar was hand carved by the Chicago Bar Company. In the early 1900s, a few silent movies were filmed on the property.

“The team is given a photograph by the evening bartender. A customer shared the photo with her after witnessing a shadow figure outside the women’s bathroom. Upon reviewing the photo, he noticed an undeniable image of a young girl dressed in old fashioned clothing,” Scott said.

During their investigation, with the help of owner Brian Great, Scott and his team uses a spirit box to try and communicate with the ghost of the young girl and other spirits that haunt the building. Great tries to reach out to a former patron of the bar that recently died.

Ohio woman believes she has a photo that proves ghosts exist


An Ohio woman claims that she has proof of ghosts. The proof is in a photo that she took in an alleged haunted elementary school in southern Ohio.

Mitzi Spicer Gilliam believes that the Poasttown Elementary School in Middletown, Ohio is haunted and she has proof of the school’s ghosts in a recent photo that she took. Gilliam took the photo at a public ghost tour that the school was having.

“This was shot with a 16 mega pixel camera and I took about 14 shots. I was smoking a cigarette for about 15 minutes but I was about 20 feet away and I put it out in a pail of water. Dave Goldinger of APER claims that I was smoking but can’t produce a time stamped picture. I took this to a professional photographer that never met me and he said it was not smoke, water, or mist. He was not sure what it was,” Gilliam said about the photo.

Gilliam posted the photo on her Facebook page and various paranormal Facebook groups asking for opinions on what it might actually be. Most people believe that the anomaly was caused from a clothing fiber that was near the lens when the photo was taken. Some folks think it actually is a ghost. Gilliam believes it is the ghost of a janitor that she witnessed the first time she visited the school.

She believed that the hand belonged to a spirit of a woman and that the ghost is friendly and maternal.
