Ghost caught on camera at restaurant

Ghost Caught On Camera At Iowa Restaurant

An Iowa restaurant owner believes he might have caught a ghost on video.

Pat Orr - the owner of 'Chuck and Edna's Maid Rite' - noticed a shadowy figure hovering beside the dish washing sink. What's even stranger, just days later there was another unexplained occurrence.

Five days later a stack of cups seem to fly off a shelf -- hitting an employee. Police Chief Fred Heim doesn't seem to be convinced that this is related to anything paranormal.

And this isn't the first alleged ghost to haunt a business establishment.

Back in March a convenience store in New Hampshire had surveillance footage of a glass cover mysteriously crashing to the floor. The store owner told reporters that people have felt a pulling on their shoulders while walking through the store.

Stuff falls out of my kitchen cabinets, but I've never once thought my kitchen was haunted. I just have crappy cabinets.

My team has been investigating for over 22 years, and we have indeed captured evidence of paranormal activity. We remain open minded during every investigation, but are very committed to completely analyzing and testing what we have recorded before presenting to our clients. It would seem that the image seen in this video is an insect, positioned directly on the lens - it is opaque, static, and does not match the movement of an actual entity. Styrofoam cups are extremely lightweight and easily topple with the slightest breeze or uneven stacking. They are also easily ionized by friction, which can make them move on their own. Just rub a styrofoam cup on your clothing to discover how much of a charge they can hold. We do believe ghosts exist, but we do not believe these images are actual evidence.

definitely a bug on the camera, you can just make out a leg on the left side, and wings at the bottom of the shadow. and it does look like the cups just fell, prob got vibrated off the shelf while the employee was working.

That is an insect - probably a miller moth - right on the lens of the camera, thus terribly out of focus. The lightweight plastic items were stacked poorly and the stack slumped and fell.

You have tried to discredit any explanation of a ghost. But, I'll bet you believe every word that comes out of Barack Obama's mouth.

Make up a story and then show a video using fishing line to make things move around and fall to the floor. Ta-da, instant internet fame for about 30 seconds.

aol users - there is NO town in Iowa by the name of New Hampshire - check the Google maps - it is NEW HAMPTON - someone at AOL needs a lesson in geography, double checking resources and spelling.
