A PSYCHIC who photographed the infamous ghost of the Black Eyed Child believes the girl has “unfinished business” in the area.
Christine Hamlett travelled to the haunted woodland of Cannock Chase with the Daily Star, where a number of sightings of the terrifying spirit have emerged over the past month.She was able to get a photograph of the ghost after claiming to use her special powers to force the ghost to present itself to her.
After her experience, the medium says she now knows how the girl died.
She said: “I think they are spirits with unfinished business. They have a story to tell and I feel that once they have said what they want to, they will be willing to pass to the other side.”
“In this case I smelled a strange smell and just felt like I was being taken back in time.
“At the moment I think she may have been a victim of an outbreak of diphtheria in the area.
“I think she has something to do with the workhouse.”
Christine, 57, warned any members of the public who are approached by the spirit to not interact with the girl as it may put them in danger.
She said: “It’s intriguing me that there seem to be so many ghosts around at the moment. It must be terrifying for the individuals who see them.”
“These black-eyed child ghosts are reportedly the bringers of bad news. So my advice would be not to interact with them unless you know what you’re doing.
“These children are troubled souls and they don’t hang around for nothing.”
“My advice would be not to interact with them unless you know what you’re doing.”
Christine, who has been contacting spirits for 40 years, says she is unsure if she will return as she wants to analyse her photos.
Her report comes almost one month after the ghost was spotted for the first time in 30 years.
Since then, there have been a number of sightings of the spectre with dog walkers, runners and investigators coming across the scary spirit.
Ian Lawman, one of the world’s leading exorcists, believes the ghost may be linked to the murder of seven-year-old Christine Darby in the 1960s, whose body was found in Cannock Chase.
He took part in a Daily Star investigation earlier this month and said: “I had a very negative feeling when we were up there and I think it is linked.
“It’s also common for ghosts with black eyes to have been blindfolded or had their sight restricted shortly before their death.
“The feeling I got there makes me think there could be more bodies up there too.”
