Researchers: Jim Morrison "Ghost" Picture Not Fake

In 1997, rock historian Brett Meisner visited late Doors frontman Jim Morrison's grave at Paris, France's Pere Lachaise cemetery. His assistant took a photo of him at the grave, and that was that.

But five years later, he looked at the photo and saw something kind of frightening: A very faint image in the background that looked like Morrison.

The image made its way onto the internet and is also discussed in a new book, Ghosts Caught On Film 2: Photographs Of The Unexplained.

The book says researchers can not account for the faint image in the background. They've decided it can't be a trick of the light, and have also ruled out the image being manipulated (Photoshop, etc.) in any way.

Maybe Morrison's "ghost" is to blame for all the vandalism on his grave that caused authorities to put a fence around his tombstone?

Or not.

At any rate, Meisner says the Morrison photo screwed up his life.

"Part of me wishes that I never stepped foot into the graveyard in the first place," he told the Daily Express.

"I'm partly to blame for talking about it in the first place. I should have kept it to myself.

"I've had strangers come to my home at all hours of the night wanting to talk to me saying they had messages from Jim.

"At first it was sort of interesting to see how many people felt a spiritual bond with Jim and the photo, but now the whole vibe seems negative."

In fact, Meisner literally wants to remove the negative from his life. He now says he plans to donate the photo and negative to an organization.

Here's a quick video about the picture:
