“FB FRIENDS CHECK THIS OUT! This picture was taken by my 13 year old daughter earlier today at Paradise (the fishing place) in Tifton, Ga. Notice my son Kolton in the background and then notice the gentleman standing to his right!!! Ya’ll this gentleman was NOT with them today and there was no one else at these back ponds where they were fishing! The only people there today were Haley, Kolton, and their grandparents Dennis and Vera Baldree. Haley was going back through her pictures and saw this and needless to say freaked out and called me lol! I personally think it’s pretty cool because today is Kolton’s birthday and he caught the biggest fish he’s ever caught! It looks like the man is happy for him!”
Thousands were quick to comment. Here was one of the early responses:
“At first i thought it looked like an confederate soldier then noticed its a baseball cap….he looks young and [I] agree with [a previous poster] about the place needing to be checked out for a body..but i think its pretty cool.”
Although the teen swears that the image is real, viewers cannot help but claim it is fake.
One naysayer wrote, “fake, you can see the shadow of the man getting out of the drivers side of the truck and the angles of the ‘shadowy’ figure suggest they are talking.”
