If you read about or investigate the paranormal for a hobby, you probably have come across the story of the Amityville Horror, where a family in Amityville, New York spent twenty-eight horrific days in one of the most infamous haunted houses in the world.
The house, which is located at 108 Ocean Ave (formerly 112 Ocean Ave before the gawkers and tourists became too much to bear after the original film’s release in the late seventies and the street number was changed), also was where Ronald Defeo murdered six of his family members while they slept in November 1974.
Later the Warrens would come in to investigate the house in 1976, leading to one of the most chilling and controversial ‘real’ ghost photographs of all time, The Amityville Ghost Boy.
There is another photograph connected to the ever growing and confusing Amityville legend that has never really been brought to light.
It is said to have been taken in 1922 in the house that stood on the same property on which the Dutch Colonial the Defeos and Lutzes both lived in later stood.
And the figure within the captured image was claimed to be conjured during a seance no less…
A paranormal ghost hunting group known as the Norfolk Ghost Hunters were in a reputedly haunted location when they captured the anomaly on the right.
Due to the venue still being used regularly, including many events that include children, the name and location of the building was not disclosed.
However, what we seem to have here is an almost full bodied apparition among the rows of pews at a church, which if you know your ghostly lore churches and other holy sites are great place to find ghosts and other paranormal activity.
Still as impressive as this ghost photo is, if you have ever read many of the articles here you will be quite aware that we will always look at things with a slightly skeptical eye, unless it is a reader submitted story.
There are countless ghost stories that come from England, which should not come as a surprise as the area is as rich in historical architecture as it is in ghost stories.
Proof is needed however for any story that borders on the unbelievable, like ghosts or other paranormal activity.Using that criteria the Tulip Staircase photograph may count among the very best evidence of ghosts and life after death.

Some places are just perfect for a ghost story or the perfect location for a excellent ghost photograph. Well, nothing quite says ‘haunted’ like the trappings of the American Old West, with it’s tales of ghost towns abandoned after the money went dry in those areas and the body count created by the outlaw atmosphere that prevailed there.
One infamous and easily debated evidence of ghosts in an old west setting was the one taken at Boothill Cemetery in 1996 when Ike Clanton posed for a picture on the old burial site.
However they did not count on the mysterious figure in the background, dressed in clothing similar to those worn in the Old West and holding a knife.
