A man claims to see an ‘apparition’ at the top of a driveway outside a burnt-out home.
Mark McIlroy is convinced the outline in this photograph taken on the Gold Coast is actually a spirit.
‘It’s definitely a robed figure, definitely an apparition, even when I enlarge the photo,’ Mr McIlroy, a self-confessed ghost hunter, told the Gold Coast Bulletin.
Look carefully: Can you see a robed ghost standing at the top of this driveway?
A Queensland bystander took the image on October 19 after a fire destroyed a house in suburban Highland Park.
Mr McIlroy, who uses gadgets to detect spirits, is convinced the dark figure in a robe is a ghost, even though no one died in the house fire 12 days before Halloween.
‘While there wasn’t anyone killed in the fire we don’t know what was there before that house, they can be attached to the land,’ he told the Gold Coast Bulletin.
‘There’s a chance the fire could have stirred it.’
Home renovations or environmental disturbances could trigger paranormal activity, Mr McIlroy said.
He runs a ghost hunting group on the Gold Coast called Paranormal Project.
