Yet another explainable photo.

This is a lens flare (reflection) of the burning podium off the lens. The color is off and it is up-side down due to refraction. If you invert the " El Kookooee" and overlay it against  the podium and the fire it's an exact match.  Lens flares are often considered to be paranormal because people do not know what causes them.

So…once again, no ghost or "kookooee".

Surveillance video recently taken at the Espanola Police Station  is believed to have a image of a "ghost" moving across the screen.

We can tell you with complete certainity that it is not. The effect captured on the surveillance video is quite typical of a insect moving across the lens of the camera. The officer even says that he "saw" a fly or moth. Then he noticed the legs. This is what insects look like when they are close to the lens, out of focus and illuminated by infrared light.

 This same effect has caught the attention of the media before and has always been proven not to be paranormal. Yet somehow, they all manage to go viral.

 

"Solving a Haunting" lecture was given for the City of Albuquerque Open Space Summer Series, 2014.

This article discusses the factors that need to be analyzed to determine the credibility of a witness of a paranormal event.

The ghost of the Plaza hotel starts out as two unusual (but explainable) incidents that occur to two women in room 316 and room 310.  As time passes myth building begins to distort the accounts and the focus of the “haunting” becomes centered on Room 310.

With the introduction of paranormal reality TV shows in 2004 the myth building increases and is propagated by the hotel employees, the media, several ghost hunting teams and by the appearance in several books.

The phenomenon identified as being paranormal in nature was investigated and found to have more likely explanations. As such, there is not a probable rationality to believe that this location is haunted by the ghost of Byron T. Mills or any other person. The case of the building having paranormal activity is not sufficient enough to cast a benefit of a doubt or to meet the burden of proof required.
