Is Michael Jackson haunting Neverland Ranch?

Normally I tend to stay away from celebrity gossip as I think there are more important things in life to worry about. But given the recent passing of Michael Jackson, it was only a matter of time before that news would cross over into the realm of the paranormal.

CNN and Larry King were doing a interview from the master bedroom of the estate. The camera pans past the door and shows the hallway. At :20 you can see a shadowy figure walk from the left to the right. Speculation has been everything from a reflection off a window to Michael Jackson still wandering the estate. Here's the video, judge for yourself.



As usual I have to be skeptical on this. A famous person just died and the media frenzy that ensued after saturated the airwaves with the death. Millions of fans were grief stricken and are claiming this is his ghost. But I honestly wonder if the fans are saying this is Michael because they want to believe he is still around in some form or another? It's akin to people seeing the ghost of a recently dead relative, they want to believe it's them so they know they are ok and can be comforted. Still, this isn't an amateur video. This was something shot by CNN on a live broadcast and to my knowledge, CNN hasn't commented on it yet.

Thanks to Heather over at the Fresno Beehive for the link.

i don't know about haunting, it's very possible in my mind. but props for the dramatic scary music and multiple replays.
thumbs up in my book!

I'm never an advocate of the dramatic music, feel that it makes the video a bit cheesy. But I'm glad whoever made the video did a few slow motion shots of whatever the object was.

LULZ! The music was perfect! Probably a shadow from everyone walking around outside but still pretty creepy.

Do ghosts typically haunt where they died, or can they haunt another place?

And that shadowy thing didn't yell out a "HEE HEE" so I don't believe it.

Michael said...

Ghosts can haunt any place, not just where they died. Some spirit may return to where they were most happy and are seen there. Others may haunt a place because of some unfinished business. Then there's always the ones who don't know they are dead and wander around thinking they are still living.

My .02 opinion? Looks like a shadow outside the window...
