After a Fatal Automobile Accident, a Policeman Takes Ghost Photos


Ghost Photo-Spirit Being PhotoOne winter evening, four teenagers went for a car ride through the Minnesota woods. At one point, a boy in the back of the car moved to the front passenger seat and the boy who was in the front repositioned himself in a back seat. Before the boy who moved to the front could buckle his seatbelt, the vehicle veered off the road and struck a tree.

The boy in the passenger seat was killed, while the other three teenagers were unharmed. A Minnesota State Trooper came upon the scene, examined the boy in the passenger seat and realized that he was dead. The trooper radioed headquarters and requested assistance. As he was waiting for backup to arrive, the trooper started taking photographs to document the accident. He turned in the camera to the police lab.

An Apparent Spirit Being or Ghost is Photographed

Ghost photo-Spirit Being PhotoA police lab technician came to the state trooper and told him that the photographs of the accident contained very unusual elements, in that it appeared that the spirit of the deceased boy could be seen above the vehicle. The police lab technician gave the photographs to the state trooper, as the technician didn't know what to do with them.

The state trooper also was unsure what to do with these supernatural images.  On the advice of friends, the trooper contacted Echo Bodine, who he was told was a reputable clairvoyant in the Minneapolis area.

The trooper made an appointment with Echo and showed her the images. He gave the photographs to Echo, telling her to preserve them and do what she thought would be best with them. Echo has kept these images in confidence for years. We are grateful to her for allowing these images to be posted on the IISIS website.

Active Pose of Spirit Being Shouting supports Authenticity of the Ghost Photo

Ghost Photo-Spirit Being Photo-Close UpIf the photograph with the apparent spirit of the deceased boy rising above the vehicle is genuine and not some type of artifact, then this spirit image has important implications.  One would think that the police lab would have ruled out malfunction of the camera, including double exposures, before submitting the images to the state trooper

Further, in the image of the spirit captured above the vehicle, it appears that he is actively speaking.  Echo has indicated that the boy in spirit form is shouting “No!” as the boy was not ready to die.

The image of the dead boy sitting in the passenger seat shows him in a passive pose, slumped against the door.  In this posture, he could not have maintained the active pose of shouting after he died.

The fact that in the image of the ghost above the vehicle, the boy is actively shouting with mouth wide open, supports that this is a genuine photograph of a spirit being.

It is unclear what the colored lines of the light represent in the photographs. Echo has hypothesized that these lines of light represent the boy’s spirit body as it leaves the physical body prior to re-coalescing outside of the body.

Ghost Photos or Spirit Being Photos support Energy Template or Hologram of the Soul

Ghost photo of Spirit Being Photo above CarThe image of the boy’s spirit floating above the vehicle supports the premise that there is a spirit body or energy template that underlies the physical body. In the section entitled Principles of Reincarnation, it is proposed that an energy template or hologram is projected from the soul into the body and that this template is responsible for physical appearance being similar from one incarnation to another.

Similarly, photographs featured in the section entitled Instrumental Trans-Communication also support the existence of this energy template or spirit body.
