The video narrative describes two people, one of which is my grandfather’s sister, Ms. Minnie Daniels. She and Joe Booth claim in the narrative that they witnessed a naked woman disappear in the muddy, murky water of the mangroves. However, since many honestly believed spirit beings lived in the isolated mangrove areas, are Ms. Daniels and Mr. Booth sure of what they witnessed? – Onajide Shabaka
