The mystery surrounding photos of a cloaked figure in Gaston, North Carolina has been solved after the pictures went viral this week.

The photos of the hooded person dressed in a black cloak were taken at the Hudson Woods Apartments and posted on Facebook on Aug. 17, according to the Gastonia Gazette. The management of the apartment complex in Gastonia was contacted that day.

"It looks like we have a logical explanation for all of this," Lance Calhoun of Southwood Realty said later. "It looks like some visiting college kids were working on a school project."

By then, the photos had exploded on the Internet, feeding the web's rumor mills.

"There was a report about raw meat being left around the property, but nothing was ever found," said TMZ. "Of course the Internet took that little bit of info and ran with it ... saying the figure was leaving the meat at playgrounds as part of a witch's ritual."


The truth, though, turned out to be simpler than beefed up witchcraft, but a lot less fun. Calhoun told the Gazette that a parent of a student involved in the project recognized her daughter in the photo and alerted the apartment complex.

"She contacted the property and said it was her daughter working on something related to school," said Calhoun.

Donna Lasher of the Gastonia Police Department said police fielded plenty of questions about the "mysterious" cloaked figure.

"I haven't heard of any other sightings. I've just heard of people being concerned," said Lasher.
