This photo of a mysterious passenger on a family car ride to Semenyih was sent by Shamsul at beena71(at)streamyx(dot)com. He said ” I received this photo from my friend Desi and you check this out. She snapped this with her two kids with her husband driving the car somewhere within Semenyih area in the afternoon in month of August. You may notice that there was an uninvited guest (white tudung or kapan? and big scary eyes) seated at the back of the car behind her and next to her elder son. She swore that only her son sat at the back during the journey. Could this thing be you know what…??? You might notice that the date on the camera was not corrected as it did not reflect that it was taken in August. However, I am pretty sure that my friend only covered up starting last June.”
Further communications through e-mail: He said ” Thank you for replying to my e-mail. My friend only has 3 sons, aged 8, 5 and 18 months. She has been married for 9 years and as far as I know, she has no daughter. By the way, the car she was in with her family was a Waja second hand model for your information. Not sure whether the car had some history in the past.” The first photo below is the original photo while the second and the third photo is a zoomed photo of the original for analysis.
First of all this photo is not fake since the photo information is intact. In fact I have managed to get the exact date, time and the type of the camera that has been used to captured the said photo without asking the sender for it. This valuable information is the most crucial info to determine whether a photo has been altered or not. Based on the info given, the said photo was captured on 21/02/2008 at 11:02:08 pm using an Olympus – FE230/X790 camera .
Unfortunately, there was contradictory information given by Shamsul as he mentioned that the date and time might have been incorrect because the photo information is intact. Nevertheless, the photo information however had proof that the photo was not altered in any way by the sender but the contradictory information may suggest that the date and time setting of the camera was not configured properly based on the photo result taken clearly in the day time, but was not exactly focused.
Further clarification about the history and background of his friend based on information gained through a set of questions in an email interview confirmed that this photo is valid to be of paranormal origin. Nevertheless, the analysis suggests that at least there are three facts that explain the nature of the mysterious figure in the photo;
The zoomed photo suggest that this photo of the mysterious passenger has not been altered or purposely created by means of producing a ghost photo. In fact, the mysterious figure has an unnatural eye. Furthermore, the blurring that appeared to next of the headrest appears to be a hand, and the shoulder of the said figure does not appear other than a prominent glowing like-light. Therefore, this mysterious figure is valid to be someone from the spirit world that is bound to the physical world for reasons unknown to us. Perhaps, this may suggest that the car may have its ‘history’ in the past.
