This ghost picture was taken during a seance that was being held inside of a Toys R Us store in Sunnyvale, California. The store is said to be haunted by the spirit of a young man who worked on the Murphy family farm during the 1800’s. The farm sat in the exact spot where the toy store was built. The legend is that the young farmhand was in love with the daughter of the farm owner but had his heart broken when she skipped town with a wealthy lawyer.
The young man allegedly named “Johnson” was later killed in an accident involving an axe, in which he bled to death. Old news paper clippings confirm much of the story, although it was psychic Sylvia Brown, who conducted this seance in 1978 that revealed much of this legend.
So is this a real ghost picture of Johnson? There was supposedly no one standing where the leaning man is seen, and nobody present saw him. Other cameras that were filming at the same time as the infrared camera that captured this shot, showed nothing.
