The real face of Waverly Hills
This picture is surely my favorite of all the manifestation caught on camera at the famous sanatorium. Amazing, this one is not a fake or a lie but a true manifestation of a spirit. Here we can see a young women at the right of the picture, she seems to look at us or at the photograph and seems to strike a pose.
These elements can make us feel like it was unnatural for a spirit or a ghost to appear like this, but, specialists are in accord with the facts that there’s no fixing or specials effects with this picture.
This young women seems to be Mary Lee, a patient dead of tuberculosis at waverly:
Tom Schwartz has been photographing and researching Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Jefferson County KY since 1991. Tom found this original portrait of a Mary Lee about four months ago on the third floor between two walls. Mary appears to be about fifteen or sixteen years old in the photo, which Tom estimates to have been taken in the late 1940’s.
If one day you go to Waverly, maybe you will encounter the ghost of Mary Lee…
Following the 1986 Stirling City Library fire, a small number of photographs were recovered, including one that had been taken only a week earlier on June 1st, 1986. On this date 14 children disappeared, followed less than two weeks later by the disappearance of the photographer, Mary Thomas. Some theorists claim that the figure on the left in the photo is the Slender Man, although officials have stated that the apparent extra appendages on the character can be dismissed as film defects.
Five months later, the body of one of the children, four year old Joseph Pertman, was found in the Great Swamp Nature Preserve in Kingston Falls, NJ. Deputy Sherrif Jim Stolz told reporters from the Associated Press that the body was still in early stages of decay, indicating that he was alive for at least four months after his disappearance. It was also reported that the body was found in a state of “bizarre contortion,” although the cause of death was never officially established.
On April 21st, 1987 the Stirling City Post ran a story regarding a rash of animal mutilations in Stirling City, that the Butte County Animal Control Department were attributing to coyotes. As man as nine dogs and cat had gone missing since January, and had been found in various states of decay. many of the pets had been disemboweled, or otherwise seriously mutilated. Animal Control Officer Joel Driscol was quoted as saying that the wounds were “unusually precise” and that it was “rare that a wild animal would leave so much of the carcass uneaten.” Also quoted inn the story was a local man, David Elkins, who was the owner of the latest victim - a cat that had been disemboweled and mutilated.
