Paranormal Investigations and Research
Pictures of the unexplained are well-loved by most paranormal investigators, so I bring you one more of mine.
I place this one in the unexplained pile of photo’s.
During this session we where listing for audible disembodied voices and movement in the main cell block area. Events and pictures containing strange shadows have been taken in various spots in the cell block.
Footsteps have been heard, sounds of the cell doors opening and closing and conversations of persons unseen all are reported in main block of the Jail Museum.
This picture was nearly missed as it is a bit dark and hard to see the mist. After the discovery of this photo I decided to lighten it up and take a look at whatever was floating in the southwest corner of the building. This is what I saw in the enhanced photo:
On occasion we bring props or trigger objects. What better ones to bring to a jail than smokes and other items that inmates would love to have that are not easy to get when locked up.
So just out of sight and around the far corner to the right was sitting MPPIR investigator Ric with an electric cigarette, right in front of him on the floor. Nobody is permitted to smoke in the building and Ric has sworn that he did not take a drag off the electric smoke at anytime inside the building that night. Ric would not have had to, if he needed a drag he could have gone outside. As a side note Ric has quit smoking since then.
So I have to ask the questions;
Who was smoking? Everyone claims that nobody was smoking and nobody reported smelling smoke.
Was that water mist in the air? The closet object that it could have come from is a e-cigarette that does work by giving off a water vapor. I have personally used a product similar and have not seen this effect in pictures of the smoke from the e-cigarette.
Is it even smoke or a water vapor mist? The climate of Cripple Creek, CO is dry most of the time. It was dry that night.
Clueless is what I am on this one. A few people have told me that it looks like energy. Others simple say it looks like smoke or mist.
I leave this one perplexed. I can’t in a mundane way explain the mist based on the reports I have. Please let me know if you see anything else strange about this photo.
Editors reference note: This is the same corner that the picture Shadow of a Man was taken. Though this picture was taken facing east and is older than the Shadow of a Man photo.
