The Evil That Men Do

If you read Ghost Investigator Volume 6: Dark Shadows, you are familiar with the incredible picture featured in the story The Evil That Men Do. For those of you who haven't yet picked up a copy of the book (and I just can't imagine why!), I've decided to post the picture here.

First, a little background on this house: A woman who was renting this house in Pomona, NY contacted me because a lot of strange and unpleasant things were occurring. There were classic signs of a haunting, but there were also signs that something here was evil.

On my first investigation there, while sitting in the living room I saw a dark figure or shadow move from right to left on the other side of the room. I quickly took some infrared photos, and the figure that appeared in one of them took my breath away. All things considered, this was the best photo I had ever taken on a ghost investigation.

This first photo was taken in daylight, so you can see the position of everything, and also see that there's no hanging plants, coat racks or anything else that could have been misconstrued as a figure.

Now, here's the infrared photo taken just seconds after I saw the moving figure. Note the black human form that shouldn't be there. I was the only one in the room--or so I thought!

Please let me know what you think of this image. I know it still gives me chills every time I look at it!

New Year's Update

The holidays have come and gone, and winter has unfortunately settled in. The weather here in New York had been wonderfully mild until recently, and I was able to go kayaking until last week when the local lake froze. Oh well, the cold weather has kept me indoors, and kept me busy working on the new book and this year's schedule. I already have several amazing cases I'm working on, but more on that in another blog.
Please check the lecture page of my website for updates. I am already scheduled for 2 new paranormal conventions (meaning ones I haven't attended before), both in upstate New York. The Supernatural Summit will be April 13-15 in Batavia , and the East Coast Paranormal Conference is May 26-27 in Rochester and I really look forward to meeting all you fellow ghost hunters.
