Naked Lady Ghost?
I came across a ghost story that was featured on TV back in the 90s. In the story, a woman and her 3 year old child go missing on a dangerous stretch of Highway 50 near Sacramento. A few days later, A couple driving on the same stretch of road see a naked woman on the side of the road. They notify the police who search the same stretch of road, but no one else sees the naked woman.

The next day in the daylight, the police drive around the area where the naked woman was reported and see a child's shoe on the road. When the officer gets out to investigate, they find the wreckage of a car down a ravine, and subsequently find the dead woman and a naked 3 year old boy, still alive. The naked lady was never found.

The conclusion in the story is that the ghost of the mom was the naked woman that was spotted on the side of the road.



The problem with this conclusion, like so many other ghost stories, is that there is a much simpler explanation.

I offer up this link to the original news story that was featured in the L.A. Times:
[link to articles.latimes.com]

From the article:
"Certain mysteries remain about the case. Police were initially alerted by a motorist's report of a naked woman on U.S. 50. But no such woman was found. However, the boy was nude. His clothing was in the car, Strasser said."

I think we can safely say that the ghost woman was actually the 3 year old boy.
1) The shoe was found at the top of the highway, implying he probably climbed to the top of the ravine
2) The child was found naked
3) The mother was pinned in the card and could not get out

Humans have a horrible tendency to jump to absurd conclusions. By applying a small amount of logic, most things can be explained quite naturally.

Thoughts? Opinions?

Here are my thoughts:

*Thank you* for applying logic and reason! I am so SICK of hearing asinine "ghost stories!"

We are an idiotic society, with kids immersed in fantasy cartoons, teens into fantasy superheros, and adults into that shit as well. Then you have "spooky campfire ghost stories" and all that other CRAP. Add in fluoride, dumbing down, etc. and you have an equation for idiots who believe in ghosts.

Never had a ghostly encounter have you.

I've never seen a ghostly encounter described beyond describing feelings and tingles.

I knew a guy who got caught in bed with another woman by his wife. The woman he was with jumped up screaming and ran out the house. The guy tried to convince his wife it was a ghost-woman.

It didn't work. She was not convinced.

That's pretty out there. I have no idea how the driver slipped through that fence, but I'd bet that it is explainable somehow without resorting to supernatural methods.

Re: Naked Lady Ghost?
In regards to the ghost car, it looks like there is a gap to the right of the fence to me. I found some other footage on youtube that would seem to corroborate this.

(Warning to those with sensitive stomachs, the spelling in the video is atrocious!)
