The Bodmin Jail was built back in 1779 before shutting down in 1927. The creepy building is still there, nestled at the edge of Bodmin Moor in Cornwall, England where it has since been turned into a hotel, museum, and gift shop — you know, what folks like to do with haunted buildings.

Throughout the years, its haunted reputation has also attracted the attention of several ghost hunting television shows, paranormal investigators, and those that enjoy experiencing the unexplained.

Here’s where we introduce you to Candice Collins, who, 15 years ago, was captured on camera next to an unknown, photobombin’ creep. He’s hanging out on the right side of the photo. We zoomed in and cropped it for you. It appears to be a man wearing some thick eyeglasses.

The image, which was lost until very recently when she moved house and found it again, has since been generating a great deal of interest on social media.

“I caught some fantastic paranormal evidence at Bodmin Jail before it was turned into a hotel,” she said. “This was snap on a camera while walking around taking pictures. It’s a full body spirit of an old man in a suit with glasses and hair line that is in my photograph, when we were the only people there. I moved house shortly after taking the picture and lost it on the move. I looked everywhere for this picture for years couldn’t find in till I was going through an old folder yesterday and there it was. I was amazed to find it after all that time.”

The image is certainly intriguing. The ‘ghost’, which is visible on the right-hand side, does resemble the shape of a figure, however it’s unclear if it is genuinely paranormal or simply a case of pareidolia – the tendency for the human brain to see meaningful shapes in otherwise abstract patterns.
