This is one of many pictures from our April 9th, 2011 investigation of the West Virginia State Penitentiary. This picture is from the (in)famous Sugar Shack. It's very difficult to determine if these orbs are spirits, energy or backscatter due to dust or pollen.
As you might imagine, the Sugar Shack is pretty dusty, so I'm not quite ready to call it paranormal. These types of pictures make for interesting conversation, though. What I find peculiar, especially in this image is the back story. There's a story, as told by the tour guide, that a mist developed and formed into full body apparation in front of this very column during one of the tours. It's quite a concidence that we would catch an orb next to that column.
