Ok I've been digging into the castle and the photographer a bit, I can find nothing on the photographer, Kevin Horkin other than he's a 48 year old
business owner, there seems to be no other information available, his name pops up a few times, only relating to this picture he's taken of the pale
ghost like lady.
If I had found he was a member of some paranormal society or some youtube video poster of ghosts I would small a rat straight off, that doesn't seem
to be the case, so if he's hoaxed this picture then it would appear it's a one off on his part.
The Gwrych Castle, Conwy, Wales has a massive amount of information on the net, ranging from the history of the how/why it was built through to ghost
stories, a common thread I came across was the pale lady or the woman in white and also a woman in red, often reported seen looking out of a window,
it seems many paranormal studies have been done at the castle with some good reports of activity ranging from, Footsteps heard on the upper floors
when no persons have been present there, Doors and windows have been witnessed to burst open, temp drops, orbs' caught on camera's, the list goes
on, so whether this is a genuinely haunted castle or not there sure is a lot of reported paranormal activity associated with it.
I really don't know about this picture, I would like to believe
it's the real deal but my nature won't allow that, I need to have some proof
the picture is real and has not been photo shopped, as we all know this is very easy to do this day and age, I can't see the photographer (if I
could contact him)
sending me the original photos now he's probably sold them to the Sun so that line of investigation is out, so all I'm left
with is the photos on the online tabloid, they are not really proof of anything so it looks like this will have to stay in the unknown category unless
someone can come up with a proper debunking of the photo..
