The Cecil Hotel in downtown Los Angeles is notorious for its dark and haunted history: serial killer Richard Ramirez (The Night Stalker) and “Black Dahlia” murder victim Elizabeth Short had both stayed there, and the building has played host to numerous gruesome deaths – the most recent of which involved the body of a missing student discovered in a rooftop water tank after hotel guests reported foul-smelling black water coming from their taps.

Now it seems a new ghostly guest has signed in at the Cecil, as reported by L.A. affiliate KABC: this week their website revealed the photo above, taken by Riverside resident Koston Alderete, which seems to depict a spectral figure outside a window on the building's fourth floor.
 
"When I looked at that window, it just looked kind of creepy to me,” Alderete told KABC, “and then I showed my friend, and he kind of freaked out.” He also claims to have suffered nightmares after taking the photo.
