5. Who You Gonna Call?
The video caught the attention of some paranormal experts in the area, including Tania Woodward, who is the current president of the Greenwich Paranormal Research Team. “What neighborhood kids are around? Do they have kids? What time of day it was set up?,” Woodward asked local television station WTEN.
As expected, the tape isn’t the only thing the paranormal team wanted.
4. I Want To Believe
Aside from the video, the team wanted to search the entire house from any sort of paranormal activity. If you’ve ever seen an episode of Ghost Hunters, you know how it goes down. The owner of the house, who chose to keep his identity a secret, turned down the opportunity.
3. What’s The Commotion?
While the town was still fearful of a little ghost, Police Chief George Bell didn’t see what all of the ruckus was about. In an interview, Bell stated, “I’ve lived here all my life, and I’ve never heard of a ghost running around the woods.”
This whole story took a drastic turn with one simple phone call.
2. The Truth Is Out There
The police station received a call from Chic Wilson, who is the owner of the Willard Mountain ski resort in Greenwich. Within the brief call, he stated that girl in the photo is really his nine-year-old granddaughter. The photo was taken while the two of them were simply hiking in the woods.
1. A Happy Ending
The image was taken at the exact time Wilson’s granddaughter started waving at the trail camera. When the news finally broke to the residents, they all took a huge sigh of relief. Even though no ghosts were present, the town is left with a grand story that will live on for years to come.
A picture is worth a thousand words, but for this tiny town in New York state, it led to some chaos. There’s a great chance the fine residents of Cambridge will look at The X-Files and Paranormal Activity in a different light after this situation.
