Ghost stories and tales of supernatural are something that most people will struggle to believe. It’s often easier to dismiss these stories as someone’s paranoia or predisposition to be scared. However what if the person claiming to have witnessed the unexplainable is part of the law enforcement community? Police officers bring a certain credibility with them, so when the police see something supernatural, it’s harder to discount. Here are six such cases, where the witnesses have dedicated their lives to the truth and upholding the law.
One evening in 2014, an officer named Karl Romero was having a quiet evening on duty at the Espanola police station in New Mexico. He was watching the security cameras when he saw a strange figure in the corner of the screen. At first he thought it was nothing more than a bug, but then he saw that the figure had legs. The next day, he told his fellow officers about the surveillance experience and many returned stories of their own. Romero told the local news that he believes this ghost may have something to do with the unsolved murders in the area.
The Capitol Theatre in Salt Lake city has been the subject of multiple haunting-style television programs, but County sheriff’s deputy Dave Murphy was a nonbeliever when he took on a second job in security at the theatre. He had to see things for himself to believe, and see he did. The ghosts started to appear as dark figures moving through walls, which is spooky enough on its own. He would hear music and singing where there was none, and a figure even appeared on stage in front of him. Murphy also saw a woman pass him wearing clothes that were as old as the early 1900s. Murphy is now a believer in the supernatural and paranormal, and actually appeared on the SyFy show Paranormal Witnesses. paranormal, paranormal,paranormal
