In Vegas del Genil, Spain the town hall is plagued with cold drafts and feelings of dread, and the politicians have only one solution: call an exorcist.
The story began February 3, 2017 when a councilor of the City Hall of Vegas del Genil (who prefers to remain anonymous) had to stay late in the building to finish a project.
According to the newspaper Ideal, he was alone that evening, and he got up from his desk to put on a coat because, according to him, "it was abnormally cold" and then he went to the bathroom when he began to hear strange sounds from the end of the corridor, "as if someone were dragging a box of files" he explained. At first he called out the name of the townhall's orderly, thinking it would be him, but he had long since left.
For fear that they were thieves he decided not to turn on the light. He then took his cellular phone and took a picture of the hall, however the flash did not go off. He didn't see anyone, which made him feel better, but when he returned to his office he looked at the photograph and could not believe what he saw: in the middle of the corridor,appeared what looked like the figure of a little girl. "I entered into a state of panic" explained the councilman who locked himself in his office and warned his colleagues who shared his office through the WhatsApp group they shared. One of his companions went to pick him up to take him home.
The next day they wanted to minimize the importance of the event, but when discussing it with a worker from the City Council, she told them that other colleagues also said that they had felt strange phenomena and "restlessness due to the inexplicable cold in the plenary room", where they said there were two heaters which had been inspected by technicians who confirmed that they were working perfectly.
Although they tried to prevent the story from getting out, they could not stop the photo from going viral in the small town of about 11,000 inhabitants .
A councilor decided to ask a Reiki master to perform a "clean energy" session to eliminate that "strange presence." The Reiki practitioner clarified that it was not an exercise in "spiritualism" and that their work consisted in "opening a door so that these presences that are trapped and do not know how to return are able to do so". According to the Reiki practitioner, besides the girl that appears in the image, "there was a denser entity that is the one that caused people that sensation of fear they were feeling".
