A ghost hunter claims to have caught footage of the white-faced ghoulish figure of a man hanged for murdering his young lover when she dumped him in one of the UK’s most haunted jails.
Tony Ferguson, 32, and his wife Bev, 50, were investigating Bodmin Jail, Cornwall, when they set down their camera for a moment, not far from the ‘Execution Pit’.
Without realising it, they had positioned the camera in just the right spot to capture a ‘real haunting’ as a ghostly figure stalked past the end of the corridor when they weren’t looking.
The spooky footage shows a ghostly apparition, who Tony believes to be the ghost William Hampton, the last man to be hanged at the jail in 1909
“It was insane,” said Tony.
“I have investigated many locations and seen many things but never seen activity like this. I can't explain it.
“I think this is a real haunting. There are lots of residual spirits trapped there in the jail. Lots of seen this ghost in person around the place.
“He doesn't acknowledge those who see him, which makes me think he's just a residual haunting, trapped there.”
