The Ghost of Boothill Cemetery

"This is the photo that changed my opinion about ghost photos," says Terry Ike Clanton, who runs the website. Clanton is an actor, recording artist and cowboy poet, and is also a cousin of the legendary Clanton Gang who clashed with the Earps  and Doc Holliday at the famous gunfight at OK Corral. Clanton took this   photo of his friend at Boothill Graveyard. 

The photo was taken in black and white because he wanted Old   West-looking pictures of himself dressed in Clanton's 1880-period   clothes. Clanton took the film for developing to the local Thrifty Drug   Store, and when he got it back was startled at what he saw. Among the   gravestones, just to the right of his friend, is the image of what   appears to be a thin man in a dark hat. By height, the man appears to be   either legless, kneeling... or rising up out of the ground.

"I know there was no other person in this photograph when I shot it,"   Clanton insists. And he believes the small figure in the background is holding a knife. "We thought this was a tie at first, but after further   review, it appears to be a knife," Clanton says. "The knife is in a vertical position; the tip is located just below the figure's right collar.

If you're not convinced that something is weird here, look at my   friend's shadow in the photo. It appears to be going back slightly to   the right of him. The figure in the back should have the same shadow, but it doesn't!"
