Ohio teen captures image of what appears to be ghost boy in car: 'I just can't explain it'

An Ohio teen believes he has captured an image of a ghost inside his car while trying to photograph a beautiful sunrise. 

An avid nature photographer, Troy Vance, 15, told Caters News Agency he was "really creeped out" after zooming in on the picture.

“I decided to take a picture of the truck with the sunrise in the background as I thought it looked really nice," Vance said. “I didn’t notice anything at the time, but after I uploaded it to Facebook I had people commenting on it, asking me if I was sitting in the front seat."

So Vance took a closer look at the image.

"Then I zoomed ... in and saw the ghostly face in the windshield," he said. "... My heart just stopped. I was in complete shock."

Abraham Lincoln

Perhaps the most famous American ghost of all, legend has it the former U.S. president never left the White House following his assassination. His spirit supposedly remains to complete the business of his abbreviated second term and to be available in times of crisis.

Dolley Madison 

Dolley proved she's not one to mess with even after her death. Woodrow Wilson's wife Edith ordered White House gardeners to dig up Dolley's garden, but it never happened after her ghost supposedly scared the staff away.

Andrew Jackson

The ghost of former president Andrew Jackson is believed to still be in his old bedroom -- the Rose Room -- at the White House. Twenty years after Jackson’s death, Mary Todd Lincoln, a devout believer in the spirit world, told friends that she’d heard him stomping through the corridors of the White House.

Abigail Adams

Former U.S. president John Adams and his wife Abigail were the first inhabitants of the White House. It turns out Abigail never left! Supposedly the ghost of Abigail has been seen hurrying toward the East Room where she used to hang her laundry.

Theodosia Burr

The wife of wealthy Governor Joseph Alston of South Carolina, left her husband’s plantation and sailed north on the Patriot to visit her father in New York City. After her ship was raided, Burr was never seen again. Legend says that she survived and was taken care of by a Banker fisherman and his wife. 

Years later, Burr was on her deathbed. A doctor was called but Burr didn't have any money to pay the doctor -- he wanted the painting of Burr hanging on the wall as payment instead. She refused and ran out the door with the painting. The painting was found washed up on the shore and Burr was never seen again.

He added: “There was no one in the truck. I just can’t explain it."

Vance said he believes the image shows a boy who drowned in the nearby lake in the early 1900s.

“It looks like a little boy is sitting in the front seat. It’s so freaky. ... I think it could be him."
