On November 11th my wife and I toured the Birdcage Saloon in
Tombstone, Arizona. It is known as the most haunted spot in Arizona.
During its first nine years in business there were 26 murders committed
inside. This was the hangout for the likes of Wyatt Earp and Doc
Holliday. If you saw the movie Tombstone
, then you will remember
the Birdcage. In the rear of the Birdcage they have the original Hearse,
called the Black Moriah, which was used to transport all cadavers to
Boot Hill. My wife and I were alone in the building and I was snapping
shots randomly. I snapped a shot of the Hearse and upon download to the
computer, this face appeared in the reflection.
A couple of things about this photo. It is currently being examined
by a Canadian film crew and has already been examined by a paranormal
research group in Canada called HAPIA. HAPIA believes the photo to be
authentic and has given it to the film crew for further inspection.
If you zoom in on "his" right eye you will see that it is extremely
large and you can even make out the pupil. He appears to be wearing a
Henley type shirt, however, according to HAPIA there are in fact no
shoulders! The lower right portion of the face appears to be behind the
pipe which is behind the hearse.
