'Ghost girl' caught on camera at cemetery

Is this the ghost of a deceased child ? Image Credit: Saundra Gonzales / YouTube / KRQE
Photographs captured at a cemetery in New Mexico show an alleged 'ghost' visiting her own grave.
When Saundra Gonzales discovered that toys and personal belongings placed at the grave of her deceased two-year-old daughter Faviola had gone missing, she asked other families who had been visiting the Masonic Cemetery in Las Cruces to keep an eye out for anything suspicious.

As it happened, another family had set up a camera to capture images of the nearby gravesite of their murdered son which they believed was being vandalized by the individual who killed him.

When they reviewed their footage recently however, they discovered to their surprise the image of a little girl - clear as anything - seemingly visiting Faviola's grave in the middle of the night.

A worker at the cemetery recognized the girl and informed Saundra and her grandmother.
"She told us that she had something really beautiful to show us that they had captured on their video camera," said Saundra. "So then she pulled out her phone and she showed it to me, and as soon as she showed me the picture I started crying."

One of the images appeared to show the girl holding hands with a tall man who Saundra believes could be the murdered son from the neighboring grave.

"They both have such a tragic story of things that happened to them and, I mean, both of them still haven't gotten justice," said Saundra.

"So, I think she was definitely there to comfort him and take him to heaven."

But do these images really show evidence of ghosts or could this be the case of a parent taking their young child to the cemetery at night to steal toys and other valuables from some of the graves ?

Either way, it's certainly unusual.

Dead girls dont need toys. So Im more keen to think of a homeless family living in the cemetery, perhaps hiding. Not the first time this happens. My concern is how can they let the little girl running around alone at night in the darkness? But the family being poor explains why the girl steal toys....

It seems to me that the photo showed an adult behind the girl in the shadows.† And the way that cemetery is laid out the adult could have been there out of the camera range.† The only weird thing is that the video† was supposedly taken at night, however it is dark by 7 pm in winter, maybe it was winter.

Sorry to ask, what is the official thing to do with the items left behind? Like flowers, toys cards etc? They will eventually pile up and will turn into litter.†

It depends on the owner of the graveyard.† Most in Las Cruces expect the people who visit to clean up the messes, water the plants that have been planted around the grave, etc.† It is really silly for people to leave toys and things at the grave site.† Flowers, plants, maybe a religious icon, those make sense but not letters, framed photos, toys, etc.† However, I noticed a lot of people do it in those grave yards in Las Cruces.

I see a lot of talk about video, CCTV, etc. but just so everyone knows, the images were actually taken using a trail camera that was placed in a small nearby tree. Iím not saying this is or isnít a ghost, but that is why you canít find video footage.

She lost a child under horrible circumstances if this brings her a little bit of comfort then I am happy for her.† Sometimes in cases like this its nicer to keep quiet.

That's such a sweet thought, I must say. I should try and remember this the next time I decide to comment on anything related to the paranormal. Good on you.†

Yeah, sorry, i didnt go hunt up a greving mother making extrodanary claims just to scoff at her, It was presented on this forum where i come for escape and entertainment, it was in a stunning upstanding publication, where that grieving mother made it public. I noticed iirc it sad the poor little child died in "boyfriends" care? Im guessing that mom has a huge amount of guilt in addition to grieving, I fully support if this type of claptrap fluff makes a person feel better but i do not feel too badly for also saying that that is not the ghost of her kid, no, it doesnt look like her kid and if s...
