'Demon' leers over man's shoulder
'Satan's' appearance prompts man to drop drug habit

A Colorado man reports he was able to kick his drug habit after a photograph of him at a relative's anniversary celebration showed – literally – a demon on his shoulder.

Joe Martinez told Fox 31 News in Denver that drugs were killing his soul.

But he's now on the road to recovery because of the photograph.

"I look at it and I carry it wherever I go," he told the television station.

The photo showed a typically smiling couple at a anniversary reception. What it also shows is what Martinez's wife, Patty, describes as "Satan."

"Right away I really thought, I said, 'You're really walking with Satan'," she said.

The photo was taken at a family anniversary celebration several years ago. It was in an album until just months ago, but Martinez says he won't be without it now because of the reminder it provides.

What appears to be a dog is looking over Joe's shoulder, in a closer view of the anniversary reception photo

"There's good and evil in life. The good on the right hand side of me, and the evil on the left side of me," Martinez told the station.

The photograph, on close examination, appears to include the image of a dog peering over Martinez's shoulder.

Brian Bonner of the Rocky Mountain Paranormal Research Society said most such cases are explained relatively simply. But for this one, he said, there's not enough evidence to support a conclusion.

A photographic expert, John Davenport of Roach Photo, told the station the picture did not have evidence of tampering.

"It doesn't look like it was double-printed or spliced in," he said. "The grain is uniform."

Martinez admits having battled drugs.

"I always prayed to the Lord and told him, 'I can't do it alone,'" he said to the station.

He and his wife credit the appearance of the image in the photo for his recovery from addiction.

"There's not another high left in me," Martinez said.


How it changed my life:

I just heard this Man interviewed (with his Wife) on the radio. Makes me wonder anyway what that thing is....

Date: 11/7/2007 1:27:00 AM  From Authorid: 35720    What's so demonic about a dog? lol.. still creepy, though.. I'd be creeped out if I saw that in a picture of me.  
Date: 11/7/2007 1:28:00 AM  From Authorid: 35720    Hey, they're from my area.  
Date: 11/7/2007 2:07:00 AM  From Authorid: 26203    Wow that is so scary...makes me wonder is it really evil after all, it did make him stop taking drugs..but still I would rather have a Kitten on my shoulders then that snaring dog...oh god it gives me the creeps.....God bless this family ...and thank you spirit child for posting this...hugs  
Date: 11/7/2007 4:03:00 AM  From Authorid: 609    ok it's an interesting photo but I find this a lil funny. "I asked the Lord for help...and all he sent me was this pic of a dog behind me" lol.  
Date: 11/7/2007 5:07:00 AM  From Authorid: 23075    It's a dog.  
Date: 11/7/2007 5:08:00 AM  From Authorid: 56359    I don’t know what it could be; I guess there’s a possibility of it being paranormal. Regardless, I’m happy to read that he is on the road to recovery because of it.  
Date: 11/7/2007 5:21:00 AM  From Authorid: 63743    It looks like a dog to me, but if that is what he needed to stop using drugs than Thank Goodness for that dog!  
Date: 11/7/2007 5:49:00 AM  From Authorid: 27534    So.....being on drugs isn't the "monkey" on your back? It's a dog?  
Date: 11/7/2007 7:10:00 AM  From Authorid: 15157    Thats a pretty tall dog as people have suggested. It is something that has permitted humans to see it as a dog. It is of negative essence.  
Date: 11/7/2007 7:30:00 AM  From Authorid: 64531    Whether that's real or not, it's pretty creepy.  
Date: 11/7/2007 7:43:00 AM  From Authorid: 21839    I guess it really don't matter, if it scared him to quit drinking then it was worth it...  
Date: 11/7/2007 8:39:00 AM  From Authorid: 63241    WOW, this is CREEPY! I'm glad that it helped him to clean up his act!  
Date: 11/7/2007 9:55:00 AM  From Authorid: 64498    Yeah that would help me keep clean although I think it would look like a duranged bunny - Bunny  
Date: 11/7/2007 10:16:00 AM  From Authorid: 40979    Looks like a dog kind of. But hey whatever. It was a wake up call to this man and he was able to break his drug addiction. Good for him :-]  
Date: 11/7/2007 2:12:00 PM  From Authorid: 63192    Demons can come in many different forms, in Mexico it is often said if a black dog appears out of nowhere, it is the devil appearing in that form.  
Date: 11/7/2007 2:26:00 PM  From Authorid: 13546    Whatever it is.. its kinda creepy looking.  
Date: 11/7/2007 2:44:00 PM  ( From Author ) From Authorid: 15070    And when I heard the interview last night? There were no "Dogs" there. It was a wedding reception. Thank you for all the replies. Personally? I think it looks like a "bat"   
Date: 11/7/2007 2:44:00 PM  ( From Author ) From Authorid: 15070    And it did not show up in any other pictures, either.  
Date: 11/7/2007 2:45:00 PM  ( From Author ) From Authorid: 15070    Whatever it was, it was creepy enough to scare the Guy "sober".  
Date: 11/7/2007 3:21:00 PM  From Authorid: 21433    it looks like a dog to me  
Date: 11/7/2007 11:09:00 PM  From Authorid: 28848    It looks like a possessed german shepard to me...  
Date: 11/15/2007 7:25:00 PM  From Authorid: 63846    Aww, puppyyyy!!  
Date: 11/16/2007 4:08:00 AM  From Authorid: 64160    I saw this on another site to. It just gave me the chills!  
Date: 11/24/2007 5:42:00 PM  From Authorid: 62095    interesting. Thanks for sharing. I love seeing pics like these.  
Date: 11/24/2007 5:46:00 PM  From Authorid: 16376    This is my hometown, lol. But I don't know those people. That is kind of weird....  
Date: 12/2/2007 8:51:00 PM  From Authorid: 18516    It looks like a rabid german shepherd.  
Date: 1/11/2008 10:28:00 PM  From Authorid: 16671    Lordy.  
Date: 1/16/2008 3:58:00 PM  From Authorid: 11097    .... even though it only looks like a dog... when you stare into the eyes it gives you a very frightening feeling.... I'm glad he was able to recover!  
Date: 1/29/2008 6:12:00 PM  From Authorid: 62679    dog or not, it looks creepy either way!!  
Date: 3/14/2008 3:31:00 PM  From Authorid: 64594    wow...that gives me chills...wayyy weird
Date: 4/2/2008 5:56:00 PM  From Authorid: 19522    how can it stand THAT tall to look behind the guys shoulder? I dont think I see a chair or nothing there, so I seriously think thats a form of a demon (which theres thousands of forms) and if it is a dog, that is not ordinary looking dog, he looks suspicious, like hes up to something...  
Date: 4/2/2008 5:57:00 PM  From Authorid: 19522    Oh and btw, Satan is a fallen angel which is supposed to be the most handsome, so anything like RAWR isnt Satan, it should be a handsome man or something but he walks the Earth still, hes not in Hell yet, so keep those facts in mind.
