Watch: Shadow Figure Filmed by Hotel Security Camera?

By Tim Binnall

A chilling video circulating online appears to show a shadow figure lurking in an Illinois hotel. The spooky footage was reportedly captured earlier this month at the Eagle's Nest Hotel in the city of Quincy. In response to a report of items going missing from a housekeeping cart, an employee turned to the hotel's security system in the hopes of finding out what happened and was shocked by what she saw.

In the creepy footage, a small shadowy shape resembling a figure can be seen darting out from behind a wall towards the housekeeping cart and then it quickly dashes back out of view. The area from where it seemingly originated is an elevator which, had it been open, would have illuminated the spot. This would seem to suggest that the anomaly manifested out of thin air.

The appearance of the spooky figure is apparently not the first bit of paranormal activity reported in the hotel as employees claim to have spotted a similar small shadowy shape in the past. They are also said to have heard mysterious disembodied giggling, leaving one to wonder if perhaps there is a ghost child living in the building. What's your take on the bizarre footage?
