This photo is now known as the “Boothill Ghost”. The photo was taken by Terry Ike Clanton. “This is the photo that changed my opinion about ghost photos," a quote Terry Ike Clanton, who runs the Tombstone Arizona website. Clanton is an actor, recording artist and poet cowboy, and is a distant cousin of the historic Clanton Gang who feuded with the “Wild” Earps and Doc Holliday at the infamous shootout at OK Corral. Clanton took this photo of his friend at the Boothill Cemetery/Graveyard. They were trying for a true cowboy look and dressed up in 1800’s style clothing and took the picture in black and white. Clanton had his film developed at the local Thrifty Drug Store, when he got it back he almost shit at what he saw. If you look in the distance to the headstones, just to the right of his friend, is the image of what appears to be a man wearing a dark hat. Because of the man’s height in the distance it appears that he is rising from the ground. Terry was also quoted here stating: "I know there was no other person in this photograph when I shot it," Terry insists. And he believes the small figure in the background is holding a knife. "We thought this was a tie at first, but after further review, it appears to be a knife," Clanton says. "The knife is in a vertical position; the tip is located just below the figure's right collar. If you're not convinced that something is weird here, look at my friend's shadow in the photo. It appears to be going back slightly to the right of him. The figure in the back should have the same shadow, but it doesn't!"
