I don't doubt your software could not find evidence of the photo being doctored after it was taken, as many here seem to be in agreement that the
anomaly was created (note I said 'created' not 'captured') at the time the photo was actually taken. It is likely a non-paranormal event created
during a cell phone's panoramic photo mode.

I totally agree. When i saw the photograph all i could see was the back view of someone in a black waterproof type coat/jacket. Also at the top of the
'ghost' hair you can clearly see stray strands of the hair, i don't believe for one moment this is a capture of a ghost.
I too will also chime in with the others and say that this is DEFINITELY an example of a 'panoramic mode error' either accidental or
deliberate. It's easily achieved by enabling panoramic mode on an iPhone/Android/Windows phone photo app, holding the phone/camera still, and having
someone jump up and down in front.
Great post and great discussions going on in here. For me there are a few things going on against this being a Ghost.
1) Shot on a phone. There are many ghost apps out there I believe.
2) The "panoramic theory" seems to explain this one sufficiently.
3) The "publicity stunt" theory seems plausible as well.
4) This is the only ghost pic I've seen where in the alleged ghost is incredibly solid instead of the traditional transparent/overlayed kind.
