Surveillance video at Asheville High caught the image of a shadow moving through the school's hallways at 2:51 a.m. last Friday.
The motion activated recorder turned off for 24 seconds, meaning nothing was moving. Then, the shape appeared again above the elevator and traveled to the hallway.
The school's spokesman won't say it's a ghost, but he won't deny the possibility.
Even the custodian has been consulted about this spectral event:
The custodian also thinks there's something other-worldly going on. He says he's seen a lot of unexplainable things over the years, but he expects it in a building that's nearly 100 years old.
Granted, this video is very creepy, but honestly, stuff like this usually turns out to be something as simple as a bug on the lens of the camera.
Now, in other cases like this, I thought the bug explanation was pretty clear, as that's exactly what it looked like to me the first time I saw it(just look at how the thing moved, guys). In this case, though, it doesn't have that immediate look - like something crawling on the lens. That certainly doesn't mean that or a similar explanation is not the cause here, I'm just saying it isn't obviously that this time around.
We'll keep you posted on any developments with this case.
