The Ghost of Boot Hill

Terry Ike Clanton is an actor, recording artist and cowboy poet, and is also a cousin of the legendary Clanton Gang who clashed with the Earps and Doc Holliday at the famous gunfight at OK Corral. Clanton took this photo of his friend at Boot Hill Graveyard.  Clanton took the film for developing to the local Thrifty Drug Store, and when he got it back was startled at what he saw. Among the gravestones, just to the right of his friend, is the image of what appears to be a thin man rising up out of the ground.

Clanton insists that no one else was in the cemetery at the time that the picture was taken.  Interestingly, the figure in question appears to be casting a shadow in a completely different direction than everything else in the photo.
