A spooked teen who claims his truck is HAUNTED has shared vision of what he believes is the ghost of a drowned boy staring at him from the front seat.
Paranormal buff Troy Vance said he initially snapped the photo to capture the sunrise last week [SEPTEMBER 30] but was later ‘really creeped out’ after zooming in on the ghostly figure that appeared in his truck.
The 15-year-old, from New Carlisle, Ohio, USA, said he believes it to be the ghost of a boy, who was rumoured to have drowned in the nearby lake in the early 1900s.
Troy said it wasn’t the first time he has experienced paranormal activity in his ‘haunted truck’, with the teen claiming to have seen dark shadows in the back seat, while also being hit with an unexplained aroma of women’s perfume.
The teen said he has also heard spooky growls and strange whispers coming from inside his truck – and even claims that ‘something or someone’ often hits the side of his vehicle with a loud bang.
Troy said: “I love taking photographs of sunrises, sunset and anything to do with scenery.
“I decided to take a picture of the truck with the sunrise in the background as I thought it looked really nice.
“I didn’t notice anything at the time, but after I uploaded it to Facebook I had people commenting on it, asking me if I was sitting in the front seat.
“I told them that I was the one taking the photo and that no one was in the truck. Then I zoomed closer in and saw the ghostly face in the windshield.
“I was really creeped out and my heart just stopped. I was in complete shock.
“There was no one in the truck. I just can’t explain it.
“It looks like a little boy is sitting in the front seat. It’s so freaky.
“There is a story around the town that apparently a little boy drowned in the lake in the early 1900s, so I think it could be him.
“The lake is right behind my truck in the photo, so that could even be where it happened.”
The teen said he often experiences strange phenomena inside his truck that he believes to be paranormal – and claims to have had regular ‘ghostly encounters’ since he was a child.
Troy has since used a ‘spirit box’ inside the truck – which is a device used by paranormal investigators to communicate with ghosts through radio frequency – to try and speak with the boy, but to no avail.
He added: “I’ve seen dark shadows moving around and have heard weird growls and whispers in the truck. It’s definitely haunted.
“I’ve always believed in the paranormal. I’ve had many ghostly experiences since I was young, it’s just something that has always been a part of me.
“I think spirits might be attracted to me. That’s why I don’t know if it’s something connected to the truck or if it’s just me.
“I decided to do a spirit box to see if the little boy would talk to me.
“But instead I think I got the spirit of a woman. There was a sudden whiff of ladies perfume, and I don’t know where that smell comes from.
“When I was doing the investigation, a weird shadow crossed the window so I gasped, and then I heard something slam into the truck with a loud bang.
“I haven’t heard anything from the spirit of the little boy as of yet, but I’m going to keep doing paranormal investigations to see if I can find out more.
“Everyone is really creeped out by it. Even people who don’t believe in ghosts have said it gives them shivers down their spine.”
