Serbian ghost caught on CCTV?

A puzzling piece of security camera footage from a police station in Serbia left officers scratching their heads as it appears to show some kind of apparition floating between jail cells. According to a local news story, the weird incident occurred in the town of Trstenik, where cops caught a glimpse of the eerie anomaly on their CCTV monitor. Left awestruck by the strange sight, the bewildered lawmen reportedly watched the video numerous times in an attempt to determine what had appeared in the footage.

Unable to solve the mystery themselves, they subsequently enlisted the help of their fellow officers, showing the video to nearly the entire Trstenik police force the next day. Alas, no one could offer a plausible explanation for the perceived figure in the footage. As such, the overwhelming and unsettling conclusion among the cops was that the oddity was a ghost.

Aside from the figure’s ephemeral appearance, the officers’ suspicions were also strengthened by the way in which the possible apparition was apparently able to pass between the bars of the jail cells without any problems. Meanwhile, the prisoners occupying the rooms are said to have not seen anything out of the ordinary at the time. Whether they felt an unusual change in temperature or heard unexplained noises, two other possible signs of ghostly activity, goes unmentioned in Serbian media coverage of the case.

Angel Recorded on Security Camera?

A Michigan man could not believe his eyes when he checked his home security system and saw that it had seemingly snapped an image of an angel hovering over his truck during the night. Talking to a local TV station, Glen Thorman recalled gasping “that’s an angel” as soon as he saw the remarkable anomaly in the photo taken by the motion sensor camera. His suspicions were strengthened when Thorman conferred with the pastor of his church, Deneille Moes, who declared that “there wasn’t any doubt in my mind that we were looking at something supernatural.”

She subsequently posted the photo to the church’s Facebook page marveling, “yep, folks, it’s an angel.” Moes also mused that “I guess there is no question who is watching over their residence while they sleep.” And she assured parishioners that the image was not altered in any way, which is a claim we tend to believe, since we can’t imagine why Thorman would want to hoax his pastor with a fake image of an angel.

That said, the assumption that the anomaly is an angel is not shared by everyone. A photography expert consulted by the TV station that profiled Thorman and his amazing image had a more down to Earth explanation for what the camera had captured: a moth. Although that could be the case, he did concede that “there may be room for interpretation,” meaning that the possibility that it’s an angel may still fly.
