This photo was taken on November 15, 2008 by the Paranormal Activity Testing Society during an investigation of the West Virginia Penitentiary (Moundsville Prison). This photo was taken in the cafeteria just 2 hours into the investigation. When this photo was taken, there were only 3 of our investigators present and no one else.
For those of you not familiar with the set up of the room, I will try to explain. RW was sitting in the floor, against the wall and would have been behind the figure. Pamela, the one who took the photo, was also sitting down in the floor asking questions in attempts to gather some EVP and snapping random photos. Patrick, our lead investigator, was standing against the wall on the far right. He was shining an IR light across the room so that Pamela could take photos. We asked "Can you show us were you are by making some noise?" they heard something that sounded like shuffling feet. That is when Pamela snapped the photo.
During a break, we skimmed through our photos and VOILA!! There he was! We are still just amazed. And notice the similarities between our Shadow man and the infamous hallway Shadow man captured by the prison’s resident paranormal investigator.
