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.

What do you think?

The Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville, LA bills itself as one of the most haunted homes in America. Dozens of legends surround the historic property, including the tale of a killer slaver and a haunted mirror. Is the face beside the doll related to the creepy story?

Ghost Photo of the Day: Myrtles Mirror Ghost

Here’s another eerie pic from the infamous Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville, LA. A reader writes:

“In November 2012, I visited the Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville and snapped a picture of a mirror next to a staircase in the house. 

 If you look closely, there’s a series of smudges in the mirror that very closely resemble a woman’s face. The smudges were present on the mirror when I took the picture, but when I looked back at the picture later the next day, the face became very apparent to me. Now I can’t unsee it.

What’s your opinion? This was taken with my iPhone, with no outside light and no editing.”

The antique mirror has quite the reputation. Legend has it a slave named Chloe poisoned her master’s wife and daughters and that the murdered family now appears in the mirror’s glass. Some say the tortured souls also leave hand prints that no amount of cleaning can remove.

Do you see a face in the photo posted above? The face (or smudges/warps) in the glass also appear in this picture.

Ghost Photo of the Day: A Slave Named Chloe

chloe myrtles plantation

Taken at the Myrtles Plantation in St. Francsiville, LA, this photo reportedly shows the spirit of a former slave named Chloe. Legend has it Chloe poisoned her master’s daughters and now haunts the plantation with her two young victims. A couple of problems, though: there’s no record of a Chloe at the Myrtles Plantation, and the daughters in question weren’t poisoned. One died of yellow fever, and the other lived well into adulthood. What do you think of the image?
