Mother Cannot Explain Spooky ‘Ghost Hand’ In Family Holiday Snap

A mother recently claimed that there was something spooky happening in her house. She claimed that the image of a “dismembered hand” present in a family picture “points towards” a man who had died later. The mother, Rhynnice Trelfa, had been enjoying a picnic with her family beside the Dovestones Reservoir in Greenfield, Manchester- when they decided to take a picture together. This was back in 2011- when Trelfa was 22 years of age. But since then, the now mother has taken the picture to social media where she has asked the paranormal experts to explain a bizarre phenomenon in the picture. [1]

The mother believes that the spooky phenomenon is that of a hand that is present in the background of the picture. Ms. Trelfa stated, “When I first discovered the abnormal hand I knew immediately that it was an unexplainable phenomenon. A shuddery feeling went all over my body, I started to cry, I had a lump in my throat, goosebumps. I was terrified. I know absolutely that nobody was behind us. Also, another photo that was taken only seconds afterward shows no sign of the hand.” The woman believes that this hand had been pointing at a man in the middle who passed away later.

Spooky Image In A Family Photo Makes Woman Concerned Who Asks Paranormal Experts

Interestingly, what could be considered far spookier than the image would be Dovestones Reservoir. It has itself seen a number of deaths. Most recent would be the death of David Lytton, 67 years old, whose body was found in December 2015. In January 2014, 28-year-old Craig Wilcox, a gardener was reported missing and his body was found at one of the spots several weeks later.

After asking the paranormal experts about the spooky event, they responded that this could belong to a late family member of Trelfa’s former partner. The worried mother responded, “After I uploaded it online I was messaged by a few mediums who said it belonged to a female with a sort of connection to my child’s father. My father and I found there had been a long list of tragic incidents that have happened at the reservoir. The most recent of these blew my mind. On the same day I posted the photo, a woman’s body was found in the same part of the reservoir. The question I have to ask: Is it a message from the other side? My belief is that the soul in the photo is somehow linked with us. It’s very exciting to have captured something like this.
