Ghost on camera at New Mexico Police Station

Ghost on Camera at New Mexico Police Station?

It must be close to Halloween, as the mainstream media stories about ghosts and the paranormal are picking up. This week, the buzz has been about the alleged “ghost” captured by security cameras on a New Mexico police station. The video is, of course, grainy and blurry and completely, ambiguously unimpressive. I took New Mexico […]
