A photograph from a ghost hunting group in St. Louis seemingly shows a spirit lingering at the top of a staircase in a notoriously haunted mansion, but not everyone is convinced that it is a genuine apparition. The eerie image was reportedly taken during a tour of a palatial estate which was once owned by a powerful brewing family known as the Lemps. Beyond being merely an interesting historic site, the Lemp Mansion has long been believed to be haunted, no doubt in large part because four members of the family committed suicide inside the home.
It is that spooky reputation which drew the St. Louis Paranormal Research Society to the home last week for one of many walking tours of the area that the organization offers to tourists and thrill seekers in search of ghosts. During this particular visit, one of the attendees on the excursion snapped a photo of a staircase inside the mansion and, in the image, a distinct figure can be seen standing on the second floor. According to a Facebook post by the group, the person who took the picture was certain that no one had been standing there at the time and the organization mused that perhaps the oddity was ghost known as the "lady in white," who has previously been seen in the mansion "over the years."
