Family catches ghost video in Savannah Georgia Cemetery aka public park.
Nice little video huh? Many people are ready to explore the idea that this guy actually collected proof of a ghost boy, but in the real world there are questions. Many questions.
No, we can’t go back in time and make the kid go search for the boy, interview people in the park and go use a little bit of critical thinking or a tad of common sense. The world will just go by what this family says and that’s about it.
We all want to believe that someone caught video evidence of the afterlife! Most of us have had experiences and would love to see film footage that is not produced by a TV network validate our personal claims. But, before we start to think this kid has something, there are a few key factors that we would like to discuss.
On the plus side, it’s nice to see something out there that’s not in IR video. In broad daylight. So, we give props to this kid for not taking a nighttime tour in night vision. That’s about it.
Here are some comments made about the video we wanted to share.
“I think it’s interesting that they had experts analyze it and couldn’t find any evidence of tampering, but also find it strange that the kid didn’t continue to film and go over and investigate! I would have if I saw something as weird as that! Maybe he didn’t really notice it until later?? I’m on the fence about it, but it is interesting!! My gut is telling me it’s fake, but I guess we’ll never know for sure either way. -Laurel Lee”
“its definatley creepy. Im gonna call bullshit though. The family was too redneck. Only an inbered kid can run & jump into a tree like that!
They prolly let him out of a cage & the kid went ape shit! - John Fletcher”
“It’s too far away and there are people constantly moving along those paths. It’s hard to say we’re seeing what we think we’re seeing. What looks like someone or something climbing the tree happens milliseconds prior to a couple with a strol ler passes. They seem to be doing something and, in fact, for an instant, I had the impression of someone tossing a jacket. Bottom line: we simply don’t get a good clear shot of what’s going on. If the original could be examined…. But then, there’s a copyright on it now…. In my experience, a copyright is a big, fat red light flashing all over the place. - Cullan Hudson”
“Inconclusive; the object from the trees could as easily be a cloud of insects or ‘swamp gas’ (LOL) ;I would want to investigate it more before calling it proof.- Marilyn Hudson”
“They can neither deny nor confirm the footage.- Stu Zelman”
There were also a lot of comments like “IDK, Hummmm” and “Interesting” as well, so people will not think we are aiming for the throat with this one. But, nobody that we found, in our group of common sense people actually agreed that the video was “Proof of the Afterlife”.
Many make this claim each time they go out on a ghost hunt. They always seem to “get evidence” as most real researchers know, that is not the case. Sometimes a person can go to the most haunted place on earth and walk away with nothing. So the TV image of “we always get something” needs to be focused on within the paranormal community. We won’t say that these people are faking it, but we will say that they are very careless and are ready to say that anything that their feeble minds can’t explain at that moment as “Proof of the afterlife”. Right now, there is no proof. Just diluted versions of people imaginations and wishful thinking. There is a lot of cool and eyebrow raising moments captured but it is not proof. Just a story.
Who else finds it a bit odd that this family held on to this “proof” for over 2 years?
Who else finds it a bit odd that the father had the video affixed with the good old fashioned lets make it official copyright?
Who else finds it a bit odd that even Fox8 news stated “have an attorney ready for those that try to steal it”… (really?)
Who else finds it odd that the father is claiming it’s the “Greatest ghost video that I have ever seen” ??? (does he watch a lot of potential ghost footage or is he just partial because his boy caught this one?)
Who else was able to spot the “Shadowy woman”???
Do we get mad tree jumping ninja skills if and when we become a ghost?
No matter what you believe you are welcome to discuss this video here.

On November 20th, in Enid, OK local authors meet up to talk to locals about their paranormal research and favorite haunting stories.
Tonya Hacker & Tammy Wilson authors of the Ghostlahoma book series spoke to a diverse crowd about their adventures in paranormal research. Tonya and Tammy both veteran paranormal researchers spoke about how they met up and became friends all over a unique EVP that was captured at Tammy’s old home. The two women shared their favorite stories from the book and encouraged everyone to contact them if they have a location they would like to see highlighted in the next book that will feature places in Oklahoma where people can eat, sleep and drink with ghosts. The women also announced they will be kicking off a statewide campaign that will allow creative kids and teens to become published. The project is set to launch after the first of the year but already the women have had great feedback from schools, libraries and community centers. Tammy and Tonya are also known as the “Ghost Divas” and answered questions from the guests about the flood of TV shows that are currently on the air. The guests were curious as to how much of the TV shows were authentic and what is strictly for entertainment. Tammy and Tonya helped guests understand from a paranormal research point of view, that the shows are strictly for entertainment purposes.
Cullan Hudson author of Oklahoma book series Strange State and the Oklahoma Strange State Paranormal Blog kicked off the event as he shared tales from the Sooner state. Cullan spoke about some of his more memorable places he has visited, including the recent Hanobia Big Foot Conference. in southern Oklahoma. Cullan shared a few thoughts and theories of his own concerning recent reports of UFO’s and the infamous Miami Spook lights in northern Oklahoma. Cullan explores all aspects concerning claims of the unknown. He does not focus on just ghosts, he covers it all. Cullan also spoke about the enchanting Spiro Mounds and touched base on the historical and archeological significance and supernatural claims.
It’s always nice to see authors and paranormal researchers come together to help intrigue and inspire the state of Oklahoma to grasp our rather young but often strange history.
I receive a lot of requests concerning the Skirvin Hotel in Downtown OKC. Travelers seek rooms that have a bit more to offer outside of luxurious accommodations.
Perhaps they have heard about the rumored tale of “Effie” a distraught mother and secret lover plunging to her death out of pure uncertainty and heartache? Maybe they heard the hotels haunting tales because the NY KNICKS & LAKERS were so afraid that they lost a game over it? Maybe people are intrigued by phantom “ladies of the night” potentially visiting their room? No matter what the reason is, there is no denying that the Skirvin Hotel has a haunting past. Since it was reopened, the unexplainable claims are making their way to the surface. Both new and old stories are being shared online and some of them will make your skin crawl.
The Skirvin Hotel is not “scary”, unless you have a great imagination and perhaps a basketball game the next day. Thousands of people spend the night in the hotel each month without ever witnessing a paranormal event or unexplained occurrence. Some of those people are staying in the hotels “hot spots” and never miss out on a wink of sleep. It’s not scary but it is one of the most highly recommended destinations I give to adventure minded travelers concerning the OKC Metro Area. The hotel is friendly and makes everyone feel at home. It doesn’t matter if you are hosting a child’s slumber party, business meeting or having a romantic get-a-way, the Skirvin is top notch when it comes to accommodations and service.
We have been monitoring reports of ghostly phenomenon since the book “Ghostlahoma” was released, which was around the same time the Skirvin opened it’s doors. Our team conducted a private trial at the hotel and learned a lot about the potential of ghostly activity. There is not a lot there, but when people least expect it they may get a blast from the past.
Areas in the hotel where we recommend you make your reservations.
- Any room on the 5th floor, west wing of the hotel.
- 9th floor central area.
- 7th floor central area.
- Ballroom- If you can get permission or an employee to show you around the ballroom, we highly recommend you visit that part of the hotel.
- 2nd Floor- Mezzanine- You can not get a room here, but take your time and enjoy the 2nd floor of this magnificent hotel. Stay to the west of the building.
- 10th floor hallway and central areas- Middle suites.
At night- see if you can hear talking, movement or a baby crying. Granted, there could be a real live baby/family in the room next to you, use common sense.
The key to witnessing something paranormal at the Skirvin hotel is to not expect anything. Just enjoy the hotel without looking for ghosts. We do not recommend anyone walking around this place with EMF meters, video cameras or any other kind of cheesy gadgets. You will be amazed what you possibly can get if you just run an audio recorder. Outside of potentially disturbing the other guests, the Skirvin does not need “ghost hunters” walking around it’s more classy than that. The hotel is more receptive to people that are there, enjoying the hotel and having a few cocktails in the Red Piano Lounge.
Learn more about the Skirvin Hotels Haunting history on the net or grab a copy of “Ghostlahoma” and let us know how your stay went! shoot us an email or post your story right here on this blog!
Tammy Wilson and Tonya Hacker will soon launch a statewide campaign to motivate children and teens to start reading and writing about Oklahomas haunting and often strange history! This campaign will allow a lot of kids to be published authors before they even graduate high school!
Working with Whitechapel Press the authors are excited about teens being able to learn more about Oklahoma History, one ghost story at time!
If you would like your school to be involved in the “Ghostlahoma- By kids” version, please contact Tonya Hacker at firstname.lastname@example.org or if you are in Northern Oklahoma or Tulsa area, contact Tammy Wilson at tammylynwilson.gmail.com
I am still looking for “Oklahomas most Haunted” for an Oklahoma travel guide. Ghostlahoma Part 2 – Places travelers can eat, sleep and drink with ghosts and other strange tales! Contact me today if you have a public location that we can put in the next book!
More to come,
