Brown said he was working the night shift at the residential apartment for senior citizens when he heard two footsteps behind the front desk. The CCTV footage shows Brown standing up to see where the noise is coming from – the moment he claims he saw a greyish mist move past him.

Convinced that he had just seen a ghostly presence – possibly of a resident who passed away in the home – Brown reviewed the footage and claims the video is proof of his ghoulish sighting. “I stood my [ground] though,” he wrote.
Since then Brown has continued to share more ‘damning’ footage of possible paranormal activity. His follow-up posts include two more supposed sightings of the ‘ghost’, who he says appears to be feeling more comfortable around him, and a ceiling light suspiciously falling to the ground.
