    I find it difficult to believe all of the photos, especially number 9. The male figure standing at Toys R Us is the same density as the poor quality photo image of the participants. And he has a shadow. Never heard of a ghost with a shadow before. I have heard of the Brown Lady before, so maybe that is legit. Number 4 is freaky too.

    #7 is a long proven fake, despite being declared as not tampered with by an expert. See debunk at where it is obviously shown what was really done.

    lp and explination about what humans dont see but feel and how to fight it and how to defeat it and how to protect your self, and to explaine the weak points and how to avoid such critical situation or influences,what i want to say that evry thing in the humans life have reason or roots or motivation, must always look for it within you first,most humans sufferning caused by paranormal reasons,in other words most of humans sicknes or illneses or sadness caused by nigative or evil entities,even your stress and fear or nightmares have paranormal reasons some times even if the sience can explaine it still they cant know the roots (not the cause), nightmares,shadows ,depresion,nigative emotions,sicknes,evil idiologies,druggs ,demonic possesion,obssesion,hauntings,psycho problems ,,,and so on ,any way for any further info im here to help and to offer my knowledge to whom ever need it,i helped many many pepole since i votted my self to this noble cause (case), im not looking for n!
    ame or to be famouse i dont need all your human wishes and desiers,i j
    ust like to defeat the evil and help the innocent pepole,by ignoring it you are just making it more effective against you
    but to satisfay your curiosity as we know human have always doubts and mistrust and fears, you can call me positive energy or positive entity writing to you through inspiring some one here or thier,or through possesings some one through positive clear relation not through harming but by the agreement of two of us me and the meduim or the bridge between me and your world , what metters actually that im friendly and well educated and much better and more secure than any other human man,beside that im the only one who can offer real edvice and help

    I want you all always to remember this name and any other similar name(zozo),in general any name have the letters Z,L,B orTH, is satanic names, ZOZO is an evil spirit or call it demonic entity, that has been linked to murders , suicides , illnes,sextual depresion throughout the world. He uses different names some times real names of pepole you knew befor,He comes usually through Ouija sessions and begins working on the mental stability of its users searching I bilieve for vulnerable victims.most likely females under 30

    The best thing is never play such games,my target is to creat awarness among humans and to help or heal his or other demonic victims and the best thing is to avoid this evil entities by all means,the childrens of satans are real and some living among you humans under different identities,they are decievers.he is made of unseen electromignatic waves,or radiation,he can effect nigativly your body sells and cause seriouse sicknes or he can cause body disfunction
