Vanessa Bolano ghost video: WGNO New Orleans reporter catches film of 'ghost' at Myrtles Plantation

Vanessa Bolano, a reporter for New Orleans television station WGNO, thinks she may have captured the image of a ghost during a report at what some call "the most haunted mansion in America", according to the New York Daily News .

Bolano was filming in what is described as the "most haunted" room at the Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville, Louisiana for ABC-affiliate WGNO.  

Later, when she was reviewing the footage at the television station, she noticed something apparently flying through the background of one of her shots.

When viewed real-time its just a blip, but when the footage is slowed you can see something quickly flying through the frame behind her.

Skeptics would assume that the object is dust or a bug reflecting the bright lighting used in her camera shot, but believers in ghosts and other paranormal activity would disagree.

"This thing flew threw quickly," said Bolano. "We have the ability to go through frame by frame... In one of the frames, when you stop it, it looks like the profile of a woman's face."

The historic house built in 1796 is now a bed-and-breakfast that hosts 50 guests every weekend.  

Mark Leonard, a tour guide at the plantation, says that people regularly claim to see ghosts or household objects move by themselves.  Some even claim that spirits have pulled them from bed in the middle of the night, reports the New York Daily News.

"I've seen hundreds of photographs taken by our guests and I've seen videos taken by our guests where you see actual historical figures showing up in the background," he said.

Take a look at Bolano's footage below and judge for yourself:
