A British couple claims to have snapped a photo of a ghost while visiting the former maximum security prison Alcatraz.
Alcatraz is believed to be one of the most actively haunted locations in the United States having imprisoned some of the most notorious criminals to have ever lived including Al Capone.
Sheila Sillery-Walsh were in the midst of an audio tour when she decided to take a picture of what was supposed to be an empty visiting block but came to find she actually captured a dark image of a woman peering back through the window at her.
At first Sillery-Walsh’s partner – Paul Rice believed she had captured her own reflection but upon closer inspection stated “The woman’s hair and clothing is from a different era, it looks like she’s from the 1930’s or 40’s,” Sillery-Walsh continues, “I have no logical explanation for the girl in the picture – I’m baffled. She’s staring right at the camera, with a knowing look.”
Officials for Alcatraz dismiss reports of ghosts but several former guards and park rangers have stated they have experienced paranormal activity at The Rock.
