Woman Photographs a Ghost Child at a Wisconsin Lake?
A woman by the name of Elizabeth Tolomeo claims that in the early 1990’s, she took this photo of her husband fishing at Dorothy Dunn Lake in Vilas County, Wisconsin. It wasn’t until sometime after she had the picture developed that she noticed what appears to be a young girl standing behind her husband. The girl appears to be wearing a white dress (she believes it could be a pinafore) and a bonnet. Elizabeth says that there wasn’t anybody there when she took the picture. She says the area was once a popular logging area. It was eventually hit with the plague and many young children died. There’s a cemetery in the area, Star Lake Cemetery, and Elizabeth thinks the figure might be the spirit of a child.
If a plague really did hit the area at one time and cause a lot of casualties, then it’s definitely possible that the figure the spirit of one of the victims. A tragic event, especially a large scaled one like a plague, could very well cause some peoples’ spirits to become attached to the area. The picture doesn’t look like it was Photoshopped. If it’s not a real ghost, then maybe there’s a slight chance that this is a case of pareidolia. However, I’m not exactly sure how likely that is. Personally, I think the picture could indeed show a real spirit, but only if Elizabeth is telling the truth and if she’s absolutely sure that there wasn’t anybody else there. I’d like to hear what you think about this picture. Did this woman inadvertently photograph a real ghost? Could it be pareidolia? Or is this a hoax?
