UPDATE - Paranormal Team Claims Apparition Led Them To Bones

I received an email and images in reference to this case:

"My name is Frank Lovoi, Co-founder of H.I.T Men “Haunting Investigative Team of South Louisiana. We are the group that took the picture of the apparition of the ghost and the group that found the bones. The picture was submitted to the newspaper on disc but for some reason was not publicized. It may be for pixilation reasons. We have in our possession the digital memory stick plus copies on disk as well as copies saved on computer in files. What makes this story unique is that had we not taken these pictures we would have never investigated the house. I really believe that there is a lot more to this story that will soon come out. I don’t buy the Indian bones theory... but than again I may be wrong."

The image: "notice the two sliding glass doors and before you zoom on the picture you will see his arm. Slowly zoom it in and you will see a big guy in denim is amazing. There was no one there!!! The house is vacant!"

Here is the posting link from 11/29/09 - Paranormal Team Claims Apparition Led Them To Bones

NOTE: the following images are those of the bones found in the house. I have since learned that a huge sawmill (Dibert, Stark & Brown Cypress Co. Ltd. - Donner, Louisiana) once stood on this property. Spiritual consultant, SW, examined the images and states the following. "As for the photo, that is not overalls the man is wearing. It is a blue apron. I immediately picked up on that he worked around animals... a lot. Either as a farrier (blacksmithing/horseshoeing), or as a butcher... probably both. See how powerfully built he is? That tells me he was used to rough and heavy work.

I need to see some of the bones. I can get more from them, I'm sure... but I don't get the impression that this apparition was a criminal. He died somewhere on the property... somewhere near that house. The house is just inside an area that is deemed "sacred". Many native peoples died there, in strife."
If more evidence is forthcoming, I will post here...Lon

For comparison, as you can see in the images below, the apparition is not visible.

SW has forwarded the following comments in regards to the bones and the area surrounding the house:

"I looked at the photos and now as I write to you, I let the thoughts come to me, as they will. Most of those bones appear to be old... from a time way past. I keep sensing "out of the ground". I believe most of those bones were dug up and moved there. It is no wonder there are so many restless spirits but I'm sensing the blending of remains. There is a sense of "scattering of pieces"... and... something... dark. Oh... Oh, crap.

I just had a tightening in my throat.

I might add that there were 3 'haints' in the house at the time the photos were taken. One looking out the door and 2 looking out from the window. Bad mojo. I would warn the investigators."
