October 18th, 2011

I blog for peace in memory of my Oma who lost her husband, her parents, her two brothers, and some of her sisters as a direct result of war. No one should have to lose their loved ones to armed conflicts. That is just one reason why I blog for peace, and am proud to be part of the peace movement online.

Ethics and the Auto Body Ghost

October 18th, 2011

Recently I was conducting some online research of psychical phenomena when I came across rather old internet report of a supposed video recording of an auto body apparition. For those of my readers who share an interest in all things paranormal, ghostly, and haunting you may recall the video clip and its accompanying story. For those of you who do not recall it or are unfamiliar I will give a brief description.

The video clip of the proclaimed apparition was caught on security cameras by the owners of an auto body and repair shop quite similar to spectrum car repair in the United States. I believe the name of the shop was Pucketts, but don't quote me on that because I'm working from memory. Hey, its a blog entry! :p

Anyway the apparition which looks suspiciously like a moth or other insect (in my humble opinion) seemed to hovering over the wreck of a car that had been involved in a fatal accident. The remains of the car had been brought into the auto body shop in order to either repair or salvage it for parts. It was during the evening hours that the video was captured. The footage made USA national news at the time it first came out, and the auto body shop was investigated by a local ghost group who stated that they did not discover any other haunting activity at this particular location. Good for them for being honest about their findings. I have no idea what eventually became of this automobile and whether or not it was just scrapped after its 15 minutes of fame.

Stumbling across this report got me thinking about the ethics behind reporting possible "paranormal" findings regarding recent, and tragic deaths. It has always been our practice to put the feelings and comfort of the living (surviving loved ones) ahead of the public reporting of potential anomalies, or the dead so to speak. So the question becomes how much time is sufficient in allowing for reporting on anomalies associated with tragic, or horrific death, which could in fact cause harm to surviving loved ones? In Toronto we know that the public naming of the spirit of a suicide victim who reportedly haunts the Hockey Hall of Fame by a major media source caused a great uproar from her surviving family 50 + years after the fact. They stated the ghost reports demeans their family member's memory.

There is a new reality-ish tv show that chronicles a psychic and a former homicide detective working on cold cases. Will be interesting to see how they deal with this question.
