Asheville NC High School Ghost Caught on Camera
Is an Area High School Haunted?

Surveillance video taken on an early Friday morning (08/01/08) at Asheville High School shows something strange. School officials aren't sure what it is, but some are saying it's some type of ghost or apparition, caught on tape. The video clearly shows something
which resembles a human figure, moving about in the school's rotunda.

Is an area high school haunted? Asheville is abuzz after video was captured by a motion-activated camera at Asheville High school at 2:51 a.m. Friday, August 1st.

In the video, a dark image –some say looks like the silhouette of a child- appears by an elevator.

The image advances forward and is again captured in the hallway.

It’s something, so far, the Asheville School District says can’t be explained. Charlie Glazener, Executive Director of Public Relations for the District says, "I’m a logical person, and I wanted to be able to explain to these folks, or anybody, this is what I think it is.

It's a bat flying around here, and it casts a shadow; but then why is the shadow down here from a different angle, and it's not in the shape of a bat?" It’s that shadow cast on the floor that has even the skeptics perplexed.

Sarah Harrison, of the Asheville Paranormal Society says, “Well, I have watched the video and I can't debunk it. The fact that it set off the motion detectors means something physical was there.

The shape morphed into something that was human shaped. I have seen many video surveillance footage of alleged ghosts and this is the only one that I can't debunk. Many video's of "ghosts" are hoaxes, but I think this would be impossible to hoax.”

Teacher Martha Geitner has her own theory! "It's a ghost. Of course it's a ghost. It's the ghost of some former student who is really angry with his teacher and has come back to get back with the teacher, and he's just making himself known at this time."

A school custodian told New Channel 7's Connie LeGrand it's not the first time he's seen an image like this; but he says that's what you can expect from a building built in 1929.

"Basically we've had a lot of people look at it," said City Schools spokesman, Charlie Glazener. "

Word spread and the term ghost has been thrown around but that's really not what we think it is, but it's not explainable.

Bottom line is, it's not explainable. We think it's interesting; we don't think Asheville High school is haunted and we don't want parents or students to be alarmed.

But a local expert in the paranormal says she's not ruling out anything. "That definitely is paranormal activity," said Beth Strickland.

"You can definitely rule out lighting there because you can see the movement and the shadow and the mist and it definitely came to form." It's just the latest ghost story in a town known for its apparitions.

A strange apparition was caught on a security camera at this high school in Asheville, North Carolina. Some claim the apparition looks like a little child wandering the school.
