Ghost Photo: Lady of the River

What do you see when you look at this photo? Some believe the white figure is an ordinary person, but the man who took the picture isn’t so sure.

John Anderson snapped the photo along the banks of the River Trent in Burton, England. Anderson was fishing on a boat with his son when they noticed the silent figure.

“Whatever it was seemed to appear and disappear too quickly to be a person, so I don’t really know what it could have been,” Anderson told the BurtonMail. “I guess there are just some things out there that cannot be explained.”

Ghost Photo: The Lady in Black

A reader writes:

“My son caught this ghost on camera when we were in Savannah this past August. I really wanted to share it with someone. We believe she is either an African-American servant girl, or maybe Civil War nurse? Please let us know what you all think. I’m not sure of the building the ghost is standing by. We were walking down the street along the river and all of the shops. It was River Street, I think. I would love to know what building it is.”

Ghost Photo: Chloe the Killer Slave

Taken at the famous Myrtles Plantation in Louisiana, the photo above allegedly shows the ghost of a killer slave named Chloe. But is it real?

According to popular legend, a slave named Chloe baked an oleander-laced cake and poisoned three members of the prominent Woodruff family: Sarah, the lady of the plantation, and her two daughters, Mary and Cornelia. However, there’s just one problem. There’s no evidence a slave named Chloe ever existed, and the three victims didn’t die of poisoning. One daughter survived well into adulthood, while her sister and mother succumbed to yellow fever.

Like many famously haunted locations, the ghost origin story at the Myrtles Plantation is completely fasle. As for the photo, to me it appears someone took a historical image of a slave and placed into the background of this image.

Ghost Photo: The Haunted Cornfield

A reader writes:

“We’ve been cleaning an abandoned cemetery dating back to the 1800s and captured something in a picture. There’s something in the stump, peeking between the two stones. I’m not sure what to think.

When we started to clean this up, we parked by the road and the electric pole was going crazy. I took a picture of the cemetery from the road and got a fog pic. We also had a lady that is clairvoyant come out, and she got some people to come forward and talked to her. She also took a picture and got a little girl in the corn. Once, I thought I heard someone laughing in the field.”
