Spirits of the Stanley Hotel: Ghost of “Lucy” Photographed at Haunted Hotel That Inspired “The Shining”

By  on 08/19/2015

The ghostly tales from Colorado’s Stanley Hotel are well-known and well-repeated, thanks in part to the fact that it inspired Stephen King to write The Shining. Now a ghost tour visitor believes that they’ve captured a photograph that lends credence to one of the hotel’s creepier legends.
Ohio native Stephanie Reidl was recently visiting the famously haunted hotel and decided to embark on one of the Stanley’s nightly ghost tours. After listening to their guide recount tales of the building’s numerous ghosts, Reidl and her coworker began to snap photos on their way to the concert hall basement. Upon reviewing the photographs, they captured the usual scattering of “orbs” – which we won’t get started on – but one particular image caught their attention.

The snap shows their tour guide descending the stairs, but to his left, hiding behind a table, appears to be the ghostly image of a young, dark-haired girl in a pink dress, her eyes reflecting in the camera flash. It’s an undeniably spooky image that they believe shows Lucy, one of the Stanley Hotel’s most famous phantoms.
“We were told to take lots of pictures, I’m sure to try and capture orbs or ghosts,” Reidl wrote. “Many green orbs were caught in pictures, but I don’t think anything is as creepy as this photo taken by my coworker- a little girl in a hot pink dress, who was definitely not on our tour… I am convinced this is the ghost of Lucy.”
According to the hotel, Lucy was a young girl about 13 years of age, believed to be a runaway, who had been squatting in the Stanley’s basement for some time many years ago. When maintenance men came to survey the basement before some major construction below the concert hall, the stumbled onto Lucy and she was forced to leave. That very night, temperatures dropped below zero, and she was later found dead, frozen by the elements. Today, many of the hotel workers and guests have claimed to have seen her.
Reidl says that she understands the skepticism that she might face by posting the image online, but swears that the photo is genuine.
“Though I doubt if anyone would believe me, but there was only ONE time throughout the tour where I felt any strange energy or feeling, and it was right here, heading down to the basement of the concert hall.”

Could Reidl be the first to finally capture an image of Lucy making her presence known from beyond the grave? Or was someone’s currently-living child wandering the halls of The Stanley Hotel at nine o’clock, hoping to scare guests on a spooky ghost tour?

Our Second Ghost Tour Event

SGHC will be having another event this year at one of Singapore's well known haunted spots - Pasir Ris.

The event will be a little less similar than the one SGHC had over at Jalan Bahar Cemetery grounds, as this event will involve more intense paranormal investigation.

Eric Yew, our guest investigator will be joining us for the night and one of our previous Ghost Crew member, Suhaimi, will be making a comeback for this second event.

We do apologize as the RSVP is bow closed but do look out for future events.


Suggested relationship to ghost sightings[edit]

Psychologist Richard Wiseman of the University of Hertfordshire thinks that the odd sensations that people attribute to ghosts may be caused by infrasonic vibrations. In 1998, Vic Tandy, experimental officer and part-time lecturer in the school of international studies and law at Coventry University, and Dr. Tony Lawrence of the psychology department wrote a paper called "Ghosts in the Machine" for the Journal of the Society for Psychical Research. Their research suggested that an infrasonic signal of 19 Hz might be responsible for some ghost sightings. Tandy was working late one night alone in a supposedly haunted laboratory at Warwick, when he felt very anxious and could detect a grey blob out of the corner of his eye. When Tandy turned to face the grey blob, there was nothing.
The following day, Tandy was working on his fencing foil, with the handle held in a vice. Although there was nothing touching it, the blade started to vibrate wildly. Further investigation led Tandy to discover that the extractor fan in the lab was emitting a frequency of 18.98 Hz, very close to the resonant frequency of the eye given as 18 Hz by NASA.[40] This was why Tandy conjectured that he had seen a ghostly figure— he believed that it was an optical illusion caused by his eyeballs resonating. The room was exactly half a wavelength in length, and the desk was in the centre, thus causing a standing wave which caused the vibration of the foil.[41]
Tandy investigated this phenomenon further and wrote a paper entitled The Ghost in the Machine.[42] Tandy carried out a number of investigations at various sites believed to be haunted, including the basement of the Tourist Information Bureau next to Coventry Cathedral[43][44] and Edinburgh Castle.[45][46]
