Family sees what they think is ghost in photo with toddler

Gloria Torres is a little bit bothered, perhaps even slightly frightened, but upset for sure.
When a photograph of her granddaughter, 3-year-old Yasline Rubio, revealed more than just the toddler, Torres couldn't believe her eyes.
In the background, more clearly than the photograph of the child, is a woman's face.
"There was no one else in the room," Torres said Tuesday. "There is nothing there that could have reflected someone. We don't know who this woman is. We can't explain it."
The ghostly image is of a young, dark-haired woman, one who Torres believes Yasline communicates with.
"Sometimes the baby will be chatting away, and we will ask her who she's talking to," said her mother, Rosa Guerra, who took the photograph. "This might be who it is."
Torres, who recently bought the house in the 500 block of Oak Street, said she has tried to contact the previous owner to get a clue to the woman's identity.
"He hasn't gotten back in touch with me, but I'd like to know if maybe someone passed away in this house," she said.
