Photos Obtained During the Investigation:



The the next photo makes us wonder if we got something paranormal after all. The series of photos includes an unedited photo where we see what looks to be a transparent image of a woman in period-style dress peeking out of the right side of the tombstone.  To make her more obvious, we made a negative of the photo, and finally, we cropped and highlighted her.

It could be “matrixing”, which is a natural phenomenon whereby the human brain can create images from random patterns… in other words, what looks like a ghost of a woman could just be dappled light from trees. But usually matrixing creates faces, not whole bodies. So, we think the photo is interesting and potentially paranormal. Was a shy female spirit spying on us in her cemetery?
