While celebrating Kolton Ogletree’s 12th birthday, his Georgia family decided to go out for a fishing trip. During the special day, Kolton’s 13-year-old sister snapped a selfie while they were parked alongside the road.
The image shows a young teen smiling for the camera. But that’s not the reason it has gone viral thousands of times over. In the picture, Haley Ogletree is seated in the back of the family’s pickup truck – however, it is what we see behind her out of the rear windshield that has the world freaking out.
You can see her younger brother bending over behind the truck’s flatbed. Look closely and you’ll see another man’s face reflecting in the vehicle’s rear window – and because it is not one of the Ogletrees, Georgia residents and others around the globe are tossing around theories…
Look closely and you’ll see a man standing inches from Kolton. Who is it? No one knows…
OpposingViews.com reports: “The African-American man appears to be standing just inches from Kolton’s face as he loads the tackle box onto the truck. But Kolton insists there was no one there at the time. What’s more, the entire Ogletree family, including Haley, Kolton, mother Jessica, and the children’s grandparents, all claim that no one else was with them while they were fishing in the back ponds of Paradise Georgia.”
The 13-year-old Haley wants to be a photographer when she grows up and already is a master of Photoshop and other photo editing software. But she claims that this image is 100% genuine. She admits that she freaked out when she saw the guy in the background and immediately posted the ghostly image on Facebook. This is what she wrote…
“FB FRIENDS CHECK THIS OUT! This picture was taken by my 13 year old daughter earlier today at Paradise (the fishing place) in Tifton, Ga. Notice my son Kolton in the background and then notice the gentleman standing to his right!!! Ya’ll this gentleman was NOT with them today and there was no one else at these back ponds where they were fishing! The only people there today were Haley, Kolton, and their grandparents Dennis and Vera Baldree. Haley was going back through her pictures and saw this and needless to say freaked out and called me lol! I personally think it’s pretty cool because today is Kolton’s birthday and he caught the biggest fish he’s ever caught! It looks like the man is happy for him!”
Thousands were quick to comment. Here was one of the early responses:
“At first i thought it looked like an confederate soldier then noticed its a baseball cap….he looks young and [I] agree with [a previous poster] about the place needing to be checked out for a body..but i think its pretty cool.”
Although the teen swears that the image is real, viewers cannot help but claim it is fake.
One naysayer wrote, “fake, you can see the shadow of the man getting out of the drivers side of the truck and the angles of the ‘shadowy’ figure suggest they are talking.”
What do you think? Is it real?
