We sensed something disquieting about this photo and analyzed it with our custom Uncanny Detector app. Note the enlargement of the face on the figure at the right. There is a long snout protruding from a dark face with shaggy blond bangs (or some sort of jagged hood?), the right eye (on our left) gleaming. But also -- protruding from the side of the figure's head (on our left) there is a second face in profile, looking downward, with a very sharp nose and the hint of a smile. Do you see these details like our app did? Blurred as it may be, this is clearly an entity from the Otherworld.
From East Carolina's 1973 yearbook.
