A ghostly figure was caught on security cameras at Pocatella High School in Pocatella, Idaho, on Dec. 19. School officials discovered the footage when they tried to figure out why the banks of lights kept flickering on and off.
Students were on winter break from Pocatello High School, also known as Poky High, last month, when the strange ghostly figure was seen on the video cameras moving around the hallway.
After the footage was discovered, John and Lisa Brian, founders of the Scientific Paranormal Investigative Research Organization, were called in to view the footage.
In the footage, the hallway lights can be seen flickering off and on throughout the building. As the lights are flickering on and off, a ghostly figure appears near a drinking fountain, moves to one of the bathrooms, then into the hallway, and finally back to the bathroom.
Best footage ever seen
“We have watched it multiple times and even slowed it down and really analyzed it. It’s a really great piece of footage, You can just see the lights going on and off, the police were called because of these issues going on in the building. All of that just goes to show that it wasn’t something someone just put on there, but instead it was something that really happened. People have even felt someone walking up right behind them where hairs have stood up on their neck and when they turn around, nobody is there,” Lisa said.
The Brians said this is the best footage they have ever seen. According to John, the security footage can’t be tampered with or edited because of legal considerations, and the video format is extremely hard to tamper with. This is raw video footage from the surveillance system. The Brians believe the school video footage is 100% authentic.
The Brians have investigated Poky High three times over the past seven years. During one investigation, some of their equipment went missing in the same area as this footage. A janitor later found the equipment while dusting a window ledge near the ceiling in a stairwell. According to the janitor, the window wasn’t accessible without a ladder.
They have also researched the school and found there have been at least 6 documented deaths in the building.
Former principal Don Cotent said that he had witnessed numerous paranormal events over his 14 years at Poky high. Two activity advisers also told him of strange things they had witnessed, and many others at the school had witnessed paranormal activity there.
This modern-day real life ghost story appears to have considerable veracity.
