Extraordinary claims. Ordinary investigations.

Video: Ghost in Colombia?

Terrifying! Watch as the Colombian news program presents the ghost video, complete with a horror movie soundtrack! They also interview a local Catholic bishop, who says matter-of-factly that it’s just a “parapsychological phenomena!” — Christians do not, or at least should not believe in ghosts, but paranormal is kind of OK. They also interview a spiritualist lady who tells us something we could never have imagined by watching horror movies or hearing scary stories: “The little girl [ghost] doesn’t realize she is dead”. The Others!

On the following day, the TV news followed the popular comotion and presented further stories and claims:

But, seriously, what was that thing in the video? As anyone may test with their cell phone cameras, filming a bright light source may produce a lens flare, that’s always pointing to the light source and whose movement is related to the movement of the camera. Exactly what happens in the Colombian “ghost of Cucuta” video.

And, as we could expect, a rival TV news program also debunked the claims:

    Im pretty liberal minded, but I went on a History tour about the book the Weem Witch, a tale about Witchcraft in the village of Pittenweem in Scotland,the tour is around an hour and a half in an old tower where witches were tortured for confessions before going to be burnt at the stake.
    half way through the tour, what seemed like a fight broke out above us on the floor above, voices were raised and the shuffling of feet could be heard. there was about sixteen people on the tour all looking bemused, on inspection there was nothing on the above floors, I have never been so scared in my life.

    I went on the tour in Pittenweem april 07, I bought the WEEM WITCH book on the Pittenweem Witches in dundee and thought the tour would be good for my children.
    Too many days reading harry Potter, I thought the real story of Witches and the tortures they went through would be educational for them splitting fact from fiction.
    Little did I know the reputation of the Tower.
    Half way through the tour I saw an old man, nothing unusual you may think! this man had no legs from the waist down! he stood floating on the stairs of the building smiling at me then vanished in front of me.
    Two others saw this take place, they left the building with me, I have never seen anything of the paranormal in my life and Im 45, but I saw this event and It scared the life from me.

    I know the author Leonard Low and his book about the pittenweem witches, what he has on photograph taken from his tower in fife are really scary, he has full video footage of something moving around in the rooms, and still photos of huge balls of light moving around, I kid you not, Ive been on the tour he does and we heard voices when no one was there.very scary

  5. […] Before we jump into any conclusions about the ghost and the authenticity of the video, let me remind you of the other recent “ghost caught on cellphone” scares that have emanated from Colombia: Ghost in Colombian morgue caught on camera Fogetomori – Colombia cell phone ghost exposed […]
