A mysterious photo captured on a trail camera in Cambridge, N.Y., has a lot of people talking about ghosts.
The photo was captured by landowners who recently bought a piece of land in a wooded area and wanted to go hunting on it. The grainy picture captured a little girl playing in the woods.
The new owners set up trail cameras to see if anyone happened to wander through the area, the town’s police chief told WTEN.
“I’ve lived here all my life, and I’ve never heard of a ghost running around the woods,” said Chief George Bell.
Bell said the landowners shared the photo with police hoping to identify the child. So far, no one has come forward with information about the girl.
WTEN spoke to a paranormal expert, who said given the history of the area, paranormal activity is common.
“We’ve experience a lot. We’ve been to a lot of places, especially our north,” said Tania Woodward, president of the Greenwich Paranormal Research Team.
Police say they’ve gotten a lot of phone calls and emails since sharing the photo. Many people cite a legend that says the girl was hit and killed on train tracks that once ran through the area.
