This article will be covering the Oklahoma impound lot ghost incident from July the 17th, 2005. Did the security cameras pick up a paranormal entity, walking through the wrecked cars?
The evening of July the 17th, 2005 – a female security officer from a car impound lot in Oklahoma City spotted something extremely strange on her monitors.
Suddenly, on one of the closed circuit cameras, a figure seemed to be walking through the wrecked cars. It was stopping every now and again to look through car windows – as if they had left something inside one of the vehicles.
All the alarms were set – but for some reason…the security sensors had not been tripped.
One of her colleagues went to investigate the scene, but by the time he got there, the strange figure had vanished. He had also vanished from view on the security monitors.
All the gates were still locked and no security alert had been triggered.
When the footage went public, many people believed that this was the image of a ghost – maybe someone that had died in a car crash and was still linked to the wreckage.
It’s worth noting that the impound had taken in three wrecked vehicles that had been involved in fatalities that day.
Within days a family came forward who had lost their daughter in a car crash three weeks earlier. The truck she had died in occupied the exact same spot the figure was seen in on the monitor…but it had been removed from the location a few days before hand.
The Debunking Attempts
The footage spread through the news networks like wildfire, before long it was put in front of a team of experts.
They concluded that the footage had not in any way been tampered with, and that the camera had indeed picked up something true within its field of view.
Conspiracy theorists jumped on the bandwagon, and tried in vain to replicate the footage. Their best attempt was a rather shitty experiment involving a doll that was being dangled in front of the security monitors…
Understandably, it failed to convince the paranormal believers.
A few other methods were used to try and discredit the footage, but they all failed to replicate the semitransparent sections of the ‘entity’.
A number of paranormal investigators believe that this ghost had no idea it was dead – it was actually walking around the Oklahoma impound lot in search of it’s body.
They also believe that this soul needed to see it’s own body before it could move on – it needed that proof before it could rest in peace.
