With Evelyn, it was a different story because her body remained strangely intact. A photographer called Robert Wiles took this photo of her after her fall. You would almost think she was merely asleep.


The Mystery Of The Babushka Lady

When anyone hears a gunshot, it is naturally expected that they will duck or try to get as far away as possible from there. In the case of JFK’s assassination in Dallas and the Babushka lady, it was different.

After the photograph finished its one-hour-long exposure process, a transparent image of a man’s upper body is sitting in one of the library chairs. Lord Combermere’s children said the apparition had an uncanny likeness to their late father, and that chair was also his favorite.

However, some have disputed the photograph’s validity, claiming that a servant could have walked in, sat in the chair, and quickly left before it was taken.
