Ghost Photo: The Lady in Black

A reader writes:

The photo below appeared on Reddit a few days ago. Here’s the story behind the bizarre pic.

The OP and his wife had just checked into the Inn at Ellis Square in Savannah, GA (Room 423).

Other than the hairy pic, the newlyweds didn’t see anything strange during their stay, though a door seemingly opened by itself.
