A shadow man has been reported by visitors and investigators, and it is thought this photo has captured it... then it was debunked - but not everyone agrees. Fact or Fiction? You Decide!
A Creepy Photo
This photo was taken by Polly Gear in 2004. Polly was investigating the non operational West Virginia State Penitentiary in Moundsville, West Virginia. The penitentiary is reportedly haunted with a number of shadow figures having been witnessed by those visiting. Asides from the 94 men executed there (85 via hanging, one being decapitated by the noose and 9 meeting their fates sitting on "Old Sparky" the electric chair), there were also 36 homicides – inmates murdering other inmates.
The Penitentiary went out of commission in 1995, and nine years later this quite eerie photo was taken after Polly encountered the figure while walking down a hallway to the cafeteria. She described it as being like black static and was shaped like a man. As she shone her torch at it the light went through it and the figure seemed to notice what she had done. However she had her wits about her enough to take the photograph as she backed away. After that the figure was gone.
Debunked then Debunking the Debunk!
What do you think?
Was the Moundsville Penitentiary Shadow Man captured in this photo?
Or is it a shadow cast by another or possibly Polly herself?
Or do you think it is a set up, a complete fake?
