Boo does this ghost think it is?

The owner of Chuck and Edna’s Maid-Rite restaurant in Cascade, Iowa called in ghost hunters after a series of strange events were caught on video (shown above).

"(Employees) have been saying they’ve seen strange things ever since the place opened, and (I) blew it off until I saw the video,” Pat Orr told the Telegraph Herald.

The first seemingly unexplained disturbance took place just before 6 p.m. April 14. The store’s security camera captures an amorphous shadow at the restaurant’s dishwashing station that slowly forms into what looks like a person and drifts off screen. The video shows the feet of a Maid-Rite employee at the edge of the frame, but the employee told Orr she saw nothing unusual.

"We found you can’t make a shadow on the floor back there because of all the lights," Orr told KWWL. "Some people said it’s a bug on the lens, again I don’t know what the thing is.”

In another incident last month, "a stack of Styrofoam cups sliding off a shelf and hitting a worker in the head, while another stack falls sideways as if it was pushed," the AP reports.

Were those cups pushed by a human? Is it suspicious that Matthew O’Brien and his Iowa City Ghost Hunters refuse to discuss what their investigation uncovered because of a "confidentiality agreement" that Orr apparently asked them to sign?

The answer to both questions is no. It's a ghost. Watch it.
