This Woman's Selfie Of A Ghost In Her Car Has Us Pretty Freaked Out

There are so many ghost stories online that it's hard to believe in any of them but when major news sites like DailyMail and the Sun covers a ghost story, you tend to pay attention. It can still be fake but I read the story and found it to be incredibly creepy. In the story, a girl's chilling selfie in a car appears to show a ‘child ghost’ sitting in the back seat which paranormal experts believe was a warning from beyond the grave.

Melissa Kurtz, 48, was driving her daughter Harper to a beauty pageant when the 13-year-old became bored and started taking snaps of herself.

Not seeing it? Look closer:

Yes, that would be a little ghost boy in the backseat of the car, leaning against the back window.

Kurtz didn't even notice the unexpected visitor in the photo until she was going through photos on her camera a month later. "It was a real 'Oh my god' moment," Kurtz told The Daily Mail. "I was really shocked by it, incredibly shocked. I ran into the other room and said to friends who were staying with me 'you have to see this.' Everyone was awestruck." 

"[Wearing her seatbelt] is something I yell at her about all the time," Kurtz told The Daily Mail. "I’ve had 13 traffic tickets in two years due to her not wearing one. She is very stubborn though – I’m always trying to catch her when she hasn't got it on."

According to The Daily Mail, Greg Pocha, director of parapsychology, afterlife and paranormal studies at Eidolon Project Canada, believes that the ghost was indeed warning Harper about the seatbelt. Apparently, this kind of analysis of paranormal motive is called spectral profiling.

The location where the photo was taken has a tragic past. "Where the picture was taken there was an automobile accident one year ago exactly," Kurtz said. "When I looked into it, someone had been medevacked away in a helicopter. However, they would not tell me any specific details when I enquired, which leads me to believe that it was a child."

And, according to Pocha, this would explain why the ghost boy was still there. "Ghosts such as the boy are prone to remain earthbound when the soul is literally ripped or thrown from the body in an accident," he said. "Chances are that he does not know that he has died. And chances are good that he will haunt this part of the highway forever."
