Welcome to B.E.A.M.S.

Founded in 1991, our society consists of a
team of active reporters and field investigators who
factually gather, study and disseminate evidence relating to Earth Mysteries, (e.g. Ley Lines, Terrestrial Energies and Ancient Site Anomalies), Strange Aerial Happenings, (e.g. Unidentified Flying Objects or UFOs), and The Paranormal, (e.g. Spirit and Psychic Phenomena).

London Underground Ghost? Bakerloo Line, London, UK - Early 1980's

The photograph above was taken in the early 1980's by Karen Collett; a housewife from Watford England who had taken her children out to London for the day. Shot on the Bakerloo line of the London underground, the photograph clearly shows an image of a man sat in an electric chair reflected onto the window behind her children. 

Several weeks later Karen Collett visited Madame Tusaud's wax museum and was surprised to find an exhibit featuring the man seen in her photograph 'Bruno Hauptman', a man executed by electric chair for killing Charles Lindbergh's baby son. (Charles Lindbergh was an American aviation hero). 

Yes, the image at Tussaud's is identical to the one in Karen's photo except there are no blue sparks surrounding the hands.

Despite skeptic's claims that it must have been a poster for the exhibition advertised outside the carriage on the underground, Madame Tussaud's can find no record of any such poster ever being manufactured.

So, is this a genuine photograph capturing a real ghost on the London underground? 

Taken with a 'point and shoot' 110 camera, manipulation is highly unlikely, and the image was sent away for professional analysis, but no explanation for the appearance of Bruno Hauptman has been found.
