Paranormal investigator arrested in Connecticut

The first rule of being a paranormal investigator is to make sure you are doing everything legally (i.e., not trespassing)! Though this particular case seems to be more about choosing the wrong kinds of team members. (Although, interestingly, the person arrested is also the founder of the group…) ENFIELD, Conn. – A Connecticut-based paranormal investigator […]

Many children ‘hear voices’; most aren’t bothered

Did you have an imaginary friend when you were a child? Did you know that there is a theory that the imaginary friend isn’t imaginary at all, but instead a ghost? Which is what makes this study published in the British Journal of Psychiatry so potentially interesting… NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Nearly 1 in […]

Occult cited in Romanian election

If you’ve voted in one Romanian election, you’ve voted in them all. Can you imagine this happening in the United States? Obama vs. McCain and a parapsychologist sending bad vibes all over the place. I think the lesson here is clear: never trust a man with a beard. BUCHAREST, Romania – Was a top contender […]

Mom’s final wishes come with ghostly threat

I’m not surprised this Dear Abby question is coming from Massachusetts (and I’m allowed to say that because I’m from there!). Children, beware.

Pet owners say they feel presence of their deceased furry friends

If people can become ghosts, why can’t animals? That is the pretext for Animal Planet’s new show, The Haunted, which is arguably one of the better paranormal shows on TV right now. It’s casting light on what many consider to be a very real phenomenon: animal ghosts. Is believing your deceased pet still with you […]

I mentioned this in a previous entry, but I just love photos that are supposed to show ghosts.

Do Animals have a ‘Sixth Sense’ About Earthquakes?

Following the recent tragedy in Haiti, as well as an earthquake in California, the question of animals and their ability to predict impending disaster is being discussed once again. It’s an interesting topic and seems to be more a matter of an animal’s ability to use their mind in ways that humans can’t (don’t they […]

Snow pics reveal ghostly figure

I don’t know why, but I just love the stories that I find that include a spooky photo. I’m not even being (entirely) cynical. I think it’s just because I love photography as much as investigating the paranormal. So here’s a story out of Great Britain with a snowy, ghostly-looking figure. A Cippenham couple claim […]

New York Knicks say haunted hotel was a problem before loss to Thunder

I suppose if I were on the New York Knicks, I’d come up with reasons such as “my hotel was haunted and that’s why I played so badly.” After you run through all your legitimate excuses, it’s certainly time to get creative. I suppose horrible coaching plus poor playing aren’t valid reasons anymore. So the […]

In Taiwan a man has been charged with assaulting a woman by taking advantage of her severe fear of the paranormal and pretending he was a ghost.
