The Glass-Breaking Ghost?

You break it, you buy it, ghost! (WMUR-9)

You break it, you buy it, ghost! (WMUR-9)

Is it possible that ghosts really do exist?

This is the question being asked by many after some recent surveillance footage from the Ellacoya Country Store in Gilford, New Hampshire showed a glass object mysteriously slide across a countertop, fall to the ground and shatter… and there was no one around at the time, which increases the “freakiness factor” of this unusual event.

Take a look for yourself by going HERE.

Store employee Heidi Boyd was working in the shop when this unexplained incident happened, but she was in a completely different room and only returned to the front to investigate what she thought was accidental breakage by a customer.

“I heard this big bang and crash,” she recounted later. “I walked around and looked and [the glass object] was on the floor.”

Store owner Steve Buzzola wasn’t all that surprised by the news, though, since paranormal activity has occurred there in the past.

“We’ve had a couple of incidents where people had their shoulders pulled,” he said. Of course, mysterious body sensations are much different from “paranormal property damages,” so I’m sure this event now tops his list of weird happenings at the store.

Fortunately—and according to comments posted to the store’s Facebook page—ghost hunters… I mean, paranormal investigators (pardon my political incorrectness)…will soon investigate the incident. And no, I’m not referring to the Ghostbusters, even though these folks can’t be that far off.

Do I believe this footage proves the existence of ghosts? Certainly not, but I’m pretty skeptical about the so-called “spirit world” and will likely remain that way until I see a ghost for myself. These things always turn out to be some kind of elaborate hoax or prank, so I fully expect the same will be true this time.

It is kind of spooky, though…

  1. Its likely just a hoax setup by the business owner. It is but digital surveillance footage that can be easily altered. Any frame captures are triggered by measurable changes in light within the pixels.
