…might even have been my dad…
This past modal structure (might/could/may have + past participle) is used to speculate about the past – this is when you aren’t certain about something and are making a guess. e.g. I haven’t seen Sarah for a while – she might have gone home early.
Notice that in this extract, the subject (it) is not used (i.e. the speaker says “might have been” instead of “it might have been”). This is a feature of informal spoken English
