Ghost girl photographed at Massachusetts casino (video)

SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -- Halloween is still weeks away, but there's already a mystery gripping the city of Springfield on social media.

An eerie snapshot posted to Facebook has over a thousand shares.

Western Mass News spoke with the person who took the picture trying to unravel the secret behind the ghostly apparition in the photo.

In nearly every scary movie haunted places are old, uninhabited dark spaces.

But MGM Springfield is now setting the scene for a possible spooky encounter.

MGM Springfield sets the scene for Sarah Allen's spooky encounter happening over the weekend.

"My friend was kind of messing with things that she shouldn’t have been and we thought it was funny so we went to take a photo of her," Allen said.

It wasn't until the next morning that Allen said the photo taken of her friend at the casino revealed something more.

Something she said seemed to have appeared out of nowhere.

The "legally" Haunted House is for sale again Upstate New York

A “legally” haunted New York house is on the market again.

Former owner Helen Ackley — who lived in the Queen Anne Victorian at 1 LaVeta Place in Nyack, from the 1960s to the late 1980s — publicly asserted the presence of various poltergeists who hailed from the Revolutionary War era and regularly shook beds, slammed doors and traipsed the halls with their phantom footsteps.

Her home, which dates back to the 1890s and fronts the Hudson River just 25 miles northwest of Manhattan, is about to list for $1.9 million with Nancy Blaker Weber of Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty.

It has a spooky history, sure, but also a litigious and star-studded one.

It started when Ackley put the allegedly possessed property on the market in 1989. When she began the process of selling the 15-room, single-family dwelling to Wall Street bond trader Jeffrey Stambovsky, she failed to disclose the spectral situation within.

In a lawsuit that would make headlines around the globe and set a precedent for future real estate transactions, Stambovsky sued Ackley over the deliberate omission and fought to obtain his deposit while backpedaling out of the purchase.

Then, in 1991, New York’s Supreme Court ruled that the home was officially haunted and, in favor of Stambovsky, decreed that Ackley had the responsibility to disclose the property’s apparent apparitions to future buyers.

Man photographs a ghost at a famous Texas Theatre (video)

AUSTIN, Texas — It's not even fall yet in Central Texas, but this spooky story is already haunting the KVUE newsroom.

Pianist Chad Lawson was performing at The Paramount Theatre in Downtown Austin Sunday when he decided to stop and snap a couple pictures from the stage after soundcheck.

But it wasn't until he got back to his hotel that he made a chilling discovery – the figure of what appears to be a woman floating in the stairway of an otherwise empty theater.

"These photos were taken as we had finished our soundcheck last night at Paramount," said Lawson. "As we were exiting the stage, I stopped to take a picture of the hall as I do with every show. Nothing out of the norm. Three quick shots (as if you were counting out loud 1-2-3), put the phone in my pocket and then headed back to the hotel."

But, in one of those three quick photos, a strange figure can be seen in the stairway.

"Once at the room, I began going through picture filters and to share one of them on social," said Lawson. "That’s when I noticed the figure in the mezzanine. I must confess it did freak me out a bit, especially as the figure is not present in the first photo."

At that point, he decided to do a little research on ghost stories at the theater. A quick Google search returned some eerie stories, including an old KVUE article about spooky sightings at The Paramount.

It specifically mentions sightings of a woman in a white dress who was seen roaming the aisles on the mezzanine.

That's when he decided to reach out to the Paramount itself, asking if a staff member might have possibly been on the floor around the time he captured the images.

Boat Captain claims to have caught the Loch Ness Monster on sonar

A BOAT skipper has captured an incredible sonar image which he claims shows a 25ft-long Nessie lurking deep beneath the waves.

Mike Bell captured the remarkable image while he was taking a group of tourists for a trip on Loch Ness on June 27.

The sonar picture shows the bottom of the loch, a fish – and a long, thin object about 115ft (35m) below the surface.

When the 24-year-old circled and took readings at the same spot the object had disappeared, tending to rule out a log or other inanimate object.

Mike, from nearby Drumnadrochit, had just finished explaining the story of Loch Ness and the castle on the water when a tourist spotted the anomaly on his sonar.

The image shows a the sonar device with 101 metres at the top left hand corner indicating the total distance to the bottom at that point.

On the right hand side the device is going down in increments of 20 metres and on it about 15 metres there is a big blip which suggest a big fish.

However, at 35 metres there is a long zig-zag line suggesting a very large object, which Mike believes could be the Loch Ness Monster.

Man claims to have captured the Legendary "Ogopogo" lake monster on film (video)

See the source imageA south Okanagan man is convinced he’s captured the most conclusive piece of evidence yet of the legendary and elusive lake monster in the Okanagan known as the Ogopogo.

Jim La Rocque was enjoying his mother-in-law’s lakefront property with his two children in Kaleden, B.C. on June 1 when he says he noticed an inexplicable wake on Skaha Lake.

La Rocque scrambled to record the mysterious ripples breaking through the lake’s glassy surface.
His son was wading on a paddle board nearby.

“Eventually he turns and sees a flipper come out of the water and hit the water, and that’s when he… turned around and started coming back in,” La Rocque said.

The longtime Okanagan resident said he couldn’t believe his eyes.

La Rocque believes he witnessed a giant, serpentine creature swimming across the lake with at least seven fins paddling in sync.

He estimates it was at least 36 metres (120 feet) long.

Ghosthunters capture shadow spirit at a haunted theatre (video)

Ghosthunters in Great Yarmouth believe they have captured paranormal activity at St George's theatre.

A video posted by Ghosted UK on their YouTube channel shows a number of silhouettes walking through the corridors next to the entrance of the theatre.

Members of the group including Tim Johnson, Annabelle Barnes and Amanda Esherwood said they were excited by the discovery at their Paranormal event last month.

Mr Johnson, 51, from Caister, admitted he wasn't sure what the shadow figures were but has described them as "unexplained paranormal activity".

"I haven't got a clue what they are but it definitely isn't the shadow of people because you would have seen somebody walk in front of the window," he said.

"It is really exciting and we want to go back again to explore the building further.

At the minute it remains unexplained."

Mr Johnson said the group which was set-up in January 2019 uses a variety of high-tech pieces of equipment to help with their investigations.

The state-of-the-art kit includes night vision cameras, motion detectors, and voice recorders.

Michigan couple claim they caught an evil ghost on their baby cam (video)

A young couple in Michigan claims that their home is possibly haunted by a malicious ghost after their daughter appeared to have three deep “purple scratches” on her face. They also believe they have captured the poltergeist on their nanny cam.

Now, they’re ready to move out.

Heather Brough, 25, and her fiancĂ©, Josh Higgins, 30, set up the camera after they discovered the purple scratches on their one-year-old, Lily. They believe what they captured on the camera can only be described as a ghost.

Upon reviewing the footage, the couple believes they saw a male figure walk quickly past Lily’s crib, as she pops up and watches him move through the room, before the alleged spirit vanishes in midair.

According to the Daily Mail, a paranormal investigator, called in to look into their claims, confirmed their home was haunted.

The couple currently resides in Higgins’ mother’s guest house in Highland, Michigan. According to the mother, Kris, before the couple moved in, an elderly lady lived there. Tragically, she lay with a broken hip for “a very long time” before she was found dead at the bottom of the stairs. Then, her “schizophrenic brother” lived in the home until his death a few years later.

Florida family claims to be haunted be a ghost (video)

LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. - A Lehigh Acres family said they are being tormented by several ghosts haunting their home.
Elizabeth Lightfoot said the nightmare first began when the family moved into their 7th Street West home in February.
“I don’t want to talk to it. I don’t want to communicate with it. I just want it to get out, but it doesn’t want to get out so we have to move," Lightfoot said. 

Lightfoot said the haunting episodes were mild and not as frequent at the start. The haunting episodes consisted of loud noises and items being shifted around the house, but Lightfoot said it quickly became violent.
“It broke our TV and our blender. I had to tie my cabinet shut. It even threw a knife at me," she said. 
“I don’t even want to go anywhere by myself in the house."

Home security camera captures the ghost of an Atlanta Mom's late son.

A grieving mum believes her home CCTV captured the ghost of her dead son in her kitchen after a 'transparent' figure triggered her camera sensor.

Mom-of-two Jennifer Hodge had been in bed watching TV with her daughter Lauren, 21, when she received a notification on her phone reading 'person spotted in entryway' last week.

When they opened the image, they saw a male figure 'beard and all' that looked just like their son and brother Robbie, who died two years earlier of a drug overdose.

Estate agent Jennifer, 57, claims she is still 'freaking out' after seeing the eerie figure last week - but finds comfort in believing it's a sign her son is at peace.

Jennifer, from Atlanta, Georgia, US, said: "It's just insane - I'm blown away. It's just crazy.

"I was laying in bed watching TV with my daughter and I was just about asleep.

"The phone was lay between us and I got this message notification saying someone was in the kitchen.

"She was like 'Mom, there's a person in the kitchen... Mom, that's Robbie!'

"She just said 'Mom, look! It looks like Robbie'. I was stunned.

"And it did look just like him - beard and all."

Is a ghost moving the handle of a vintage hearse ?? (video)

It’s not quite the hand that rocks the cradle.

However, there’s no denying that some entity is responsible for moving the handle on a Victorian hearse.  

Steve Wesson had been hearing rumors of paranormal activity at Nottingham’s Haunted Museum, so he decided to investigate. 

On Jan. 3, the paranormal investigator set up a camera to hopefully catch a ghoul in the act. Trouble is, all his video caught is a handle on the old hearse being lifted up, but no one is seen on the tape. 

"On the morning of Jan. 4, I went through the camera footage and did not expect to see what I did,” Wesson told Caters News Agency. “Caught on camera, I saw the handle being pushed up in the air with great force being falling back down to its original place — it was very scary but also amazing!"
Wesson acknowledged that the museum houses many items with spiritual oddities. He also said the ghost distorted the camera’s settings. 

Actress Jennifer Aniston talks about living in a Haunted House (video)

LOS ANGELES — Before Jennifer Aniston lived in an apartment above Central Perk with her gal pals, the actress says she lived in a real haunted house.

“This dishwasher would start to go, or the coffee-maker would start to go, or the stereo would just turn on at full volume,” she told James Corden. “And it was terrifying.”

Aniston was on “The Late Show With James Corden” to promote her new Netflix movie “Dumplin’ ” that features music from Dolly Parton.

The actress says the haunting happened when she first moved to Los Angeles early in her career and she even went so far as to hire a ghost whisperer.

“They had frankincense and they put it in a little dish,” she said. “And started saying all these things and the corner that she went to the dish cracked. … (The ghost) hated my roommate. … No (I didn’t tell the roommate), I moved out. I feel terrible, but I couldn’t say it doesn’t like you. I mean that would be terrible.”

Time to visit Arizona's most haunted hotel, the Jerome Grand Hotel.

It's believed that nearly 9,000 people died in the Jerome Grand Hotel during its previous life as United Verde Hospital. That's a lot of sickness, pain and death.

There must be some residual spirit energy left over from all those souls, right? Right.

Ghostly figures, sounds, unexplained orbs of light and other paranormal activity permeate the halls of this ghost-hunting cult mecca high above the turn-of-the-century Yavapai County mining town making it one of the most haunted places in Arizona.

“We were skeptical and didn't believe it in the beginning,” says general manager Chris Altherr, whose father Bob and uncle Larry bought the boarded-up 30,000-square-foot building from the old Phelps Dodge Corporation in 1994 after laying fallow for more than 40 years. “We only had six rooms open at first and immediately began receiving reports from guests hearing voices and a (hospital gurney) in the hallways, but no one was there.”

Scores of visitor accounts

Whether or not you believe in ghosts — or more specifically ghosts at the Jerome Grand — scores of visitors have signed guest books in the lobby noting their experiences.

“We fill a 300-page journal each year,” Altherr says. “We have four or five of them right now.”
Activity happens throughout the hotel, but the third floor in particular. Most of the deaths occurred in the operating room there. The sound of a hospital gurney, wheels across the floor, spook the uninitiated.

“We've made changes with carpet and you can still hear it at 3 in the morning,” Altherr says.
Guests also report the ghost of a cat on the third floor. Like a feline jumping onto the bed and walking around.
