A police officer in Espanola, New Mexico, is claiming that he recently saw something completely inexplicable while monitoring video cameras outside of a police station.
It all started Saturday night when Officer Karl Romero told KOAT-TV that he was monitoring security footage when he noticed something curious near a gate — a bright white figure that appeared to walk across the lot and right through the shuttered doors.
While Romero at first assumed it was an insect or a moth, it didn’t take long for the cop to make out what he believes were human legs.
“I do believe in ghosts — I don’t know [if that’s what was on the video], but we’ve had some unsolved murders in the area,” he told the outlet.
Another officer told KOAT-TV that he believes the figure was, indeed, a ghost and that other cops at the station have felt “what appears to be someone breathing down their neck” while filling out reports in the briefing room.
Others, too, have reported seeing strange images in the lobby of the building.
Of course there are other explanations for what appeared in the footage. Dust, insects and other elements are certainly possible contenders, though some officers believe that something a bit more supernatural is going on.
