I’ve been avoiding posting something like this on GhostTheory. I figured that this type of “news” would blow away quickly. Instead I’m seeing it surface on more blogs and other news sites since last week.
I’ve gotten a few emails with the link to this story.
OK, so the story goes like this..
3 teenage girls from Colombia decided to do some Satanic rituals just for kicks. They dress up and have fun. They ask one of the girl’s brother to take a picture of them to remember the moment. When they look closely at the picture, in the background is a demonic face. The girls then panic, have a nervous breakdown and a new urban legend is born.
Three teenage girls from a Tolima town saw a ghost standing behind them in a photo taken after having played improvised satanic rituals, local media reported Wednesday.
The incident happened last week in the town of Purificacion when the girls, between 15 and 17 years old, decided to dress up as witches and to try satanic rituals and spells – just for fun.
One of the teenagers asked her younger brother to take a photo of the girls to remember the evening. They had the shock of their lives when they discovered the clear image of a man standing behind them.
Seeing the alleged ghost, the girls started to scream and panic and one of them even suffered a nervous breakdown.
The three friends swear that they were only playing around and did not use a ouija board to invoke spirits, which is a more common reason for panic among teenage girls in Colombia and especially in the Tolima department.

Images like these are fun to look at. A sort of “Where’s waldo” amusement is brought on by them.
Can this be the face of a demon? not likely.
Pareidolia in action? most likely.
Gary@GhostTheory wrote an interesting post on some of the most recognized ghost/pareidolia photos out there.
This should be added to the list 🙂8 comments
