Houston man captures creepy figure in hotel lobby

- A Houston man staying at one of the nation’s most famous haunted hotels has an unusual souvenir from his trip.

Henry Yau, the public relations director for the Children’s Museum of Houston, was staying at The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colo. with his wife for a weekend getaway. During his stay, Yau took pictures around the historic property—which served as the inspiration for Stephen King’s “The Shining.” But he hadn’t planned on seeing anything out of the ordinary.

“I had read about it being haunted but little did I imagine I would capture something,” Yau told FoxNews.com. While Yau was in the lobby, he used the panoramic feature on his iPhone to capture a full view of the grand stairwell. “I don't like when people are in my shots, so when I took this photo, I had waited until the grand stairwell was cleared of people before taking the pic,” he recalled.

That night when Yau went to bed he says he became “strangely ill.” Feeling uncharacteristically quesy, he didn’t sleep well. But the real surprise came when he was scrolling through his hotel shots the next morning.
