Ted Bundy haunted house

Are Ghosts Haunting Ted Bundy’s Childhood Home?

In addition to being a paranormal investigator, I’m also an armchair expert on serial killers. Jack the Ripper is the one I’m most fascinated by, but I’ve also extensively studied Jeffrey Dahmer, David Berkowitz, John Wayne Gacy, the Zodiac, and of course, Ted Bundy. I have some thoughts on this news, as you may have […]

Paranormal Activity Blamed for Abuse of Patients

Many paranormal investigators believe that hauntings can be caused by trauma suffered by people who lived in the past. The theory goes that the people who suffered these tragedies cannot “move on” to the afterlife, and thus are stuck here on Earth, doomed to forever answer questions and demands such as “is there anybody here […]

Ryan Buell Paranormal State arrested

Ryan Buell of Paranormal State Arrested for Felony Theft

Well, I can’t say I’m surprised. Ryan Buell, of Paranormal State fame, has finally surpassed Brian Harnois as “Most Embarrassing ParaCeleb.” One of the hoaxingest hoaxsters amongst a myriad of paranormal TV hoaxsters, Buell has previously been accused of stealing money from his fans, as well as falsely claiming he had pancreatic cancer in order to […]

Ghost Hunters new channel

Where will Ghost Hunters end up?

As I reported back in June, it seems as though Ghost Hunters is done on the SyFy Channel. When Jason Hawes announced the news on his Facebook page that the show wouldn’t be returning to SyFy, many fans took it to mean that Ghost Hunters was canceled and wasn’t coming back. His comments were vague, […]

Woman Sees Ghost on Baby Monitor

There really is no money to be made as a paranormal investigator. But if I had a nickel for every time I had to explain to someone that the orb they captured in a photo or video was just a piece of dust, I could have retired comfortably about 5 years ago. And the only […]

Bobby Brown sex ghost

Bobby Brown Claims to Have Sex with a Ghost

So Bobby Brown was on ABC’s 20/20 on Tuesday night, and mentioned this one time that he had sex with a ghost. But the truly weird and unbelievable part of his story is where he says that he was sober when it occurred. His story was completely believable up until that part. Now I can’t […]

Gronk afraid of ghosts

Rob Gronkowski is Afraid of Ghosts

Rob Gronkowski, for those not in the know, is the tight end for the New England Patriots. He lives, eats, and breathes football. He’s nigh unstoppable on the football field. He’s also the new cover athlete for Madden NFL 17. My fiancée (pictured below because she insisted – how adorable is she?) is obsessed with […]

Haunted Trails in New York and West Virginia

History and the paranormal have always been intertwined. Or at least they should be. Ghosts, after all, are thought to be the spirits or residual energy of people who have passed in the, well, past. So, history! Unfortunately, not every ghost hunter out there approaches history with the reverence it deserves. And that’s why stories […]
