PEEK-A-BOO: Shocking picture shows ghost of mother-in-law pop up behind posing child
This haunting picture shows that even death won’t stop your mother-in-law from popping up – after a ghostly figure was caught on camera during a game of peek-a-boo.
Caroline Walker, 49, from Bradford, West Yorkshire, was taking silly snaps of her grandson when a see-through spirit in a nightie popped up behind him.
It’s believed that the pale figure is the ghost of Caroline’s mother-in-law, Adele Lockwood, who died in September 2008 who appeared in front of antique furniture that used to belong to her.
Her three-year-old grandson, Jotham, was pulling funny faces when the images were taken.
But after closer inspection when looking through the photographs Caroline spotted the haunting figure.
Caroline, who is currently unemployed, said: “It’s really weird and quite spooky, I can see arms and part of a see-through body that appears to be dressed in a nightie.
“The figure in the pictures is transparent and the only person I think it could be is my ex-mother-in-law because we have her old furniture in the room.
“The house is only 20 years old so I don’t think there could be any spirits from my home, she’s the only one we can think of.
“I only met my mother-in-law a few times but I know she was a strong businesswoman who seemed really nice.
“Tragically she had an accident that left her in a vegetative state before passing away in 2008 but even then in her worse days she knew who I was.
“Pretty much everything in the room belonged to her, it was all her antiques.
“Maybe she was coming to have a look to check her antique furniture was ok or maybe she came to look at her great-grandson, we’re not really sure.
“I was taking a lot of pictures of my grandson Jotham who was pulling silly faces in front when it happened.
“My grandson was just being cheeky he loves having his photo taken, he was posing for some fun photos.
“We never saw anything at the time while taking the pictures, it’s very strange we can’t explain it ourselves.
“It was only a few weeks later when I was going through them that I noticed what looked like a ghost behind my grandson.
“When I showed my friends they first start to laugh in disbelief, but then they were a bit shocked.
“It’s changed the way I see the room, I’m not worried at all but it feels like she could be still there.
“I’ve always believed in the paranormal but until you see something yourself you can never be certain and now I do think there could be something after death.”
After discovering the haunting figure Caroline consulted with paranormal investigators but even they have struggled to explain the chilling findings.
Since then she’s taken several pictures to try to capture the unusual figure again but hasn’t seen anything unusual.
Caroline added: “I’ve showed the picture to paranormal groups but no one’s been able to give a credible explanation for what it could be.
“Some people have suggested it could be caused by the light but my phone is quite old and doesn’t have a flash, plus if it did there would have been a reflection – in this picture the figure is transparent.
“Since the incident I’ve noticed a few more creaks in the house but I don’t know if that’s been caused by the spirit or if it’s just the house.
“I’ve even tried to take more pictures to see if the spirit pops up again, but I don’t know if she’ll show up again.
“I always try to see the logical side of things but this picture I cannot explain.”
