Most of us are first introduced to the supernatural when we hear about ghosts as kids. Usually this happens whilst we are watching TV, or when a parent suggests dressing up as one at Halloween because, y’know, it’s a good way to save money on a decent costume.

Us humans are fascinated by ghosts, and the afterlife in general. Although there is no absolute scientific evidence that ghouls exist, there have been countless reports of sightings over the years and, since the invention of photography, questionable looking spectres appearing in pictures.

My mom has always been a great believer in the supernatural, and when I was about eight years old, she made the rookie error of telling me a bedtime story that left me unable to sleep for months. It was about a ghost called the Grey Lady.

According to my mom, she saw the Grey Lady whilst recovering from an operation. Legend has it that she was once a nurse who worked at the hospital and committed suicide after making a fatal mistake. She reportedly appears whenever there’s a crisis.

Another story that resulted in me running into my parents’ bedroom cowering was about my grandpa. He’d worked as a gravedigger, and my mom, failing to learn from the Grey Lady incident, told me about something creepy that had happened to him.

Looking back, this was her way of trying to convince me that an afterlife exists. She told me that one night my grandpa’s dog, who usually happily went with him to the graveyard, refused to go anywhere near its gates after seeing something he couldn’t.

But now New Yorker Adam Ellis, pictured above, has claimed to have evidence of something a lot more terrifying than whatever spooked my grandpa’s dog and the Grey Lady. There’s a demonic baby haunting his apartment, and he’s got the pictures to prove it!
