This is one of those stories that is unbelievable and creepy at the same time, and you’ll be hard to just pass this off as sheer coincidence.

13-year-old Addison Logan of Wichita, Kansas, was perusing a garage sale in west Wichita with his grandmother Lois Logan.  Addison stumbled upon an old Polaroid camera and thought it was “cool.”  So the youngster forked over the asking price of one dollar and took his new prize back to his grandmother’s house.

After searching the Internet for instructions on how to operate his new gadget, he removed the cartridge inside the camera and found that it had a picture still inside it.

And what a picture it was.

Back at his grandmother’s house, Addison got on the Internet to find out how to take a picture with it. When he removed the cartridge and opened it, he found an old photograph inside. He took the photo to his grandmother.

Lois Logan said she looked at the photo and saw her son, Scott, who died in an auto accident 23 years ago.

The photo showed Scott sitting on a sofa with a high school girlfriend, Susan. Lois guessed it was taken in 1978 or 1979, about 10 years before his death. She didn’t remember the photo, but thought it must be one of her old ones.

But wait, it gets weirder.  The Logan family didn’t know the people holding the garage sale, and the house that the camera was purchased at wasn’t built in the 1970s when the picture was taken.

So, super extreme weird (and slightly creepy) coincidence, or a sign from beyond the grave from the Logan’s deceased loved one, as they seem to believe?  Whatever you believe, you have to agree that this is one amazing story.
