Shadow figure causes motion-activated doll to move at haunted Birdcage Theatre
A paranormal research group captured some compelling footage at an old building in the tourist town of Tombstone recently. The group's DVR system recorded a possible shadow figure as they were setting up their equipment in preparation for an investigation.
On June 22, 2013, paranormal investigator Kevin Hickman set off to Tombstone, Arizona to explore the Birdcage Theatre with his Phoenix-based group Afterlife Research Team. John Albrecht of Paranormal Playground joined Hickman on the investigation. Both men were determined to gather evidence of the historical location's ghosts so they set up 16 cameras in various rooms of the building to do just that.
As the super-moon was at its fullest, and while Hickman and Albrecht, and four other investigators were setting up equipment, something strange happened on one of their DVR cameras. In one of the clips from the Albrecht's footage, a black shadow can be seen passing by the camera where the poker table room is located. A closer look at the video in slow motion shows what Hickman believes to be proof of the shadow person phenomena.
"This is some of the best footage my team has ever gotten on a paranormal investigation. The Birdcage Theatre is one of the most haunted places I've ever been too. Albrecht is a brilliant investigator and every time we work together we capture great evidence," Hickman said.
"I'm not sure what to make of this footage. At first I thought it might be interference issues with the DVR system but the motion-activated doll actually corresponds with the black shadow as it passes by. In the background, there is a mirror, and you can see that there were no investigators on that floor at the time the anomaly appears," Albrecht said.
Just last month an employee of the Birdcage Theatre was shot and killed outside in the street. Some people are saying that he will join the rest of the spirits that haunt the old theater.
