If I Died In Colbert County, Would It Make The Evening News?

05.30.2010 · Posted in Ghosts, Hauntings

I don’t think a ghost story is what the band Drive-By Truckers meant when they wrote that line about death in North Alabama in their song, “Puttin’ People On The Moon.”

In Tuscumbia, Colbert County, Alabama, workers in the WMA office have come up with some interesting footage they say shows some long-gone prior occupants of their building. The photos appear fairly normal at first, but after “enhancing the clarity” of the images, local historian John McWilliams says there are images of what appear to be ghosts in the pictures.

McWilliams and EMA Director Mike Melton know they sound a little crazy when talking about these photos, but they don’t mind. They say the whole thing is a creepy but are remaining “lighthearted” about it.

Looking at the “before” and “after” photos, it seems to me that the “enhancing” means adding a bunch of images to the picture. What do you think?

Stills of the pictures can be seen by following the link below.
