I recently got in a couple of reports dealing with the phenomenon of shadow people. A shadow person is also sometimes called a shadow figure, shadow being or black mass. It is sometimes even referred to as Hat Man as sometimes these figures appear to be wearing a hat.

The perception is that these black masses are a living, humanoid figure and is thought to be evidence of the presence of a spirit or other entity.

A Scare In Your Step: America’s Most Haunted Hikes

Hiking is the most popular activity for travelers, tourism researchers report, so it comes as no surprise that new trails and walking adventures are constantly being developed across the country for tourists and locals alike. If you enjoy the great outdoors, you might be wondering how to square that with your interest in the paranormal. But haunting experiences aren’t just confined to haunted houses and historic landmarks: there are a number of hiking trails across the United States reported to be seriously haunted.


When Tyler was young, back in 2008, about like 6 years of age, when he and his parents moved into a small house in the woods that used to be a hunting cabin in Hedgesville,WV. Everything seemed to be normal until a few months later. He said that he was outside playing in the backyard, when he saw a black humanoid creature with glowing white eyes and about 5'8" in height, watching him from the woods. As a young boy he was very curious, so he started to approach it and it just vanished into thin air. This occurrence scared and shocked him, very much so that he was afraid to go outside for months.

Electronic Voice Phenomena or just EVP for short, are sounds recorded on electronic devices that are interpreted as spirit voices. Many psychologists regard EVPs as a form of auditory pareidolia, meaning that the investigator is interpreting random sounds as voices and there really isn't any voice there. But over the years equipment for capturing these voices has gotten better. There are numerous ways to record EVPs. Everything from very low cost devices to ones that cost a thousand dollars or more.

I think EVPs are great evidence of the spirit world. What makes it amazing is that many times you will get a direct response to a specific question or set of questions. This goes way beyond auditory pareidolia, in my opinion.

With that said here is three very interesting EVPs.


As we continue to roll out some of these incredible EVPs from our investigation team, I think it is important to let everyone know that none of these are faked. These sounds were often times captured on multiple recording devices. No voice sounds have been added in at all. After an investigation, it takes many hours to sift through all the different recordings.
Once a potential EVP is discovered, the first thing we normally do is simply boost the audio. After that, if we feel it is an actual voice, we do a variety of things to clear up the sound. Reducing noise levels can sometimes be very effective.

In the video below, Tony, the lead investigator, ask a simple question and gets a pretty clear reply.
Check it out

Up next is our second offering from our Paranormal Team. This is from a couple years ago but I think the EVP is a good one. Lead investigator, Tony Felosi, ask a simple question and it appears he got an answer. Sometimes asking simple or a different style of questions will elicit a response.

Here is the short video with some enhancements, give it a watch

Recently, myself and Tony Felosi of Harlan County Paranormal got another chance to investigate the old jail in Harlan county, Kentucky. The old jail is home to numbers murders, suicides and lord only knows what else. The jail has been a hot spot for paranormal activity for a while now, but as of late, it seems the activity has been on the increase.

This investigation yielded a host of evidence, as the activity was really high. I just want to make it clear that the building was on total lockdown. No one was in the building other than Tony and I. There were many things that we heard and had happen. Much of the activity was captured on either video or an audio recorder. There was some evidence, like some foot steps, that we both heard, that has been left out of the video below.

With that said, there was several EVPs and other disembodied voices recorded, alone with other unknown source sounds. It was pretty creepy and the EVP at the end of the video seals it.
Here is a short video of the investigation.


First, let me say the video found in this post has never been viewed in any public forum. I'm very glad to be able to bring it to you. The video was shot by Johnathan back in March of 2005. He was using one of those VHS-C video recorders. They look kind like a smaller, but fatter, version of a VHS tape. The video was shot at what is considered to be one of the most haunted houses in America, The Myrtles Plantation.

Myrtles Plantation was build in 1796 by General David Bradford. The plantation is located in St. Francisville, LA. The plantation house is rumored to be on top of an ancient Tunica Indian burial ground. It is currently a bed and breakfast, and offers historical and mystery tours.

I was alerted to the video by Sam, he was able to get Johnathan in contact with me so I could check out the video.
More of about how the video was captured is told during the video. The video also contains various enhancements.
Here is the video.


This use to be a page on our site and I removed it. But I thought it would be a good idea to preserve the actual content, and add some, from the page. I know some of this information, especially the tools, is probably out dated but there is still some good information. It is important for ghost hunters to be prepare when going out to investigate and this post will provide some useful information. There may even be some seasoned investigators who will find some of these tips useful. There are two lists, one for ghost hunting tools and one is ghost hunting tips.

 Lets get to the list.


In this interview, we talk to paranormal investigator Tony Felosi. Tony is from Harlan County Kentucky and recently took part in Harlan Haunt Fest. Tony is also finishing up a book about his investigations, many of which took place in Harlan county. He is hopeful that his book will be out sometime in early 2017.

Here is our interview

TM: How long have you been researching/studying the paranormal?
TF: 8 years Seriously - Have been Interested and reading about Ghost, UFO's, Bigfoot, And Mythology since I was around 10 years old.

TM: What got you interested in ghost, Was there a particular event that got you started?
TF: The desire for more knowledge and the possibility of communication with other dimensions really got me into the Paranormal.

TM: During your research/studying of the paranormal, have you ever encountered aggressive behavior or felt in danger from a spirit?
TF: Yes, I have been scratched , Stepped on, clothes tugged etc. I think that most of the time that the stronger entities try and influence your mind into a state of being paranoid or fearful. This is why it is so Important that you are grounded and focused during Investigations.

TM: It seems Skeptics are always doubting the paranormal field, and make claims of evidence being faked, How do you deal with it?
TF: I try and use logic, and show them legitimate evidence that I have caught. But some people due to being close minded cannot be swayed no matter how compelling the evidence may be.


TM: What do you feel is your best evidence of the paranormal?
TF: EVP's from a killer and his victim. The killer was shot during his trial by a relative of the victim. I caught EVP's that were backed up by court records and newspaper articles. Also have a video of a figure moving in front of the camera during a fog machine experiment on demand.

(Here is that video. Please look at the very end of the video, A figure seems to move from left to right.)
 


TM: Do you have a favorite place you like to investigate?
TF: My favorite place to Investigate Probably would be the Old Jail and Courtroom in the old Harlan county courthouse that was built in 1928 and has seen at least 15 Murders and suicides.

TM: Do you have a place you would like to investigate but haven't got to, yet?
TF: Probably Waverly Hills and Leap Castle in Ireland

TM: What would you be doing if you wasn't researching/studying the paranormal?
TF: Camping and woods survival , Tracking etc

End interview

That concludes our 26th interview in the series. If you would like to find out more about Tony's investigations, then you can hop over to Extreme Validation Parnormal Society facebok page. It appears the page has not been updated in a little while, but there are several interesting videos for you to ponder over. A special thanks goes out to Tony for doing the interview and sharing some of his work with us.


Thanks

I was sixteen when I had my first Paranormal experience.The whole episode left me in awe. But scared me and sparked my interest all at once.

I had went to visit my girlfriend I'll call her Kate for privacy sake, but Kate lived in a old coal camp community. Coal Camps are small communities where the men that worked in the areas coal mines lived with there families. Most of the homes these men lived in where own by the coal companies themselves.
The house Kate lived in was at one time or another home to many people that worked the mines when
coal was abundant. Kate's family had told me many times they witnessed various things in the home like lights flicker, objects would move on their own, shadows where seen upstairs and downstairs, also noise and voices were heard at times. Of course I didn't believe any of it and would call them all nuts and would laugh when the subject was brought up.

I was challenged by Kate one night to go upstairs and say “I don't believe in ghost”... big mistake, so me being the brave 16 year old, I rushed upstairs and yelled to the top of my lungs “I don't believe in ghost”.
I was asked one night by her brothers Jake, Barry and Joe to spend the night since Kate was staying with a friend so I stayed. Jake didn't have a door for his bedroom so he had hung a sheet over the door frame for a little privacy. We were so into a game of Street Fighter When I notice the sheet in the door way move. I didn't say anything at first until Jake asked us “ Did you see that?”
We all responded with a "yes", when all of a sudden the door to the Balcony slammed shut. It shut so hard it shook the whole house.

We then spent 10 minutes fighting over who was going to go shut and lock the door then Barry said
he would go shut it. The moment he stuck his head out the door way there was a loud boom and he said "Nope I'm not going". So, I said I would. I get half way there when the door slams shut. I knock the boys down as I ran through the doorway.

But the episode that really done it was when me and Kate were on the balcony sitting, I kept feeling something rub up against my leg only to see my pants leg move and nothing was there. I kept feeling for a string or something but there was nothing. I also watched an Orb the size of a basket ball hover around the upstairs, on a few occasions.

After that I never set foot back into that house. The house stills stands to this day and I still have so many unanswered questions. After these events, I soon found others with my same interest and got into Ghost hunting and have been doing it on and off for a while now.

This is a sit down interview and table discussion about the previous nights investigation. The investigation took place in the Rolling Hills Asylum. The table discussion is hosted by TCC's Jason Morse, who also took part in the ghost hunt. There are various topics discussed and some good information about this investigation and past investigations.

Rolling Hills Asylum is 53,000+ sq. ft. brick building that sits on a knoll in the hamlet of E. Bethany, N.Y.. It has long been a popular place for ghost hunters and has had a long history of being haunted. it did not disappoint the STURS team.

Here is the table discussion of the events.



Here are some links to STURS:

The old all girls orphanage in Savannah, GA was built is 1810. A fire at the orphanage took the lives of two young girls. They continue to be seen to this day. The sound of girls singing and playing has been reported for years. There is also reports of object being moved around in rooms. Is it being done by the two little girls?

This general area of Georgia has a long history of being a haunted. Moss covers many trees like a bride's veil, and it creates a shadowy and eerie atmosphere, that seems almost inviting to ghost. Savannah's Colonial cemetery is a favorite stop for ghost hunters and those looking for a brush with the spirit world.    

Check out the 3rd episode of FolkTales.

Mock up picture - Not actual photo. Used for reference only.
I got the following report in a couple days ago. It is an interesting report and is something many people have reported seeing.

Here is the report.

- Start Report -

Name: Debbie ****

Email Address: on file

State: ky

County: bell

Date of Sighting: 1987-88

Time of Day: night

Nearest Town: pineville

Length of Sighting: overtime

How many Witnesses: 2

Any Photos/Videos: yes but i don't have them with me.

Describe sighting in detail:
In the 1980s I had move into my grandmothers house. I lived there when I was a young girl before my grandparents lived there and loved it but the people who lived in the house last did not take care of it and keep it up. The roof leaked and the paint was gone off the outside,and windows were busted. The two back doors didn't have any locks, so I had to make my own locks with two boards and nails.

My cousin kept saying he thought he would see shadows go back in forth through the living room and kitchen part when he was brushing his hair. My husband said he thought he saw things in the corner of his eye at that time. I did not have cable and the TV signed off at 11:30. When I had a fire built in the fire place, my husband hadn't got home yet, the kids were in bed. At that time I smoked cigarettes, I always blew the smoke at the fire place but I noticed that night the smoke wasn't going into the fireplace and keep going in a circle and into the next room. I kept feeling like someone was starring at me. So the TV signed off and I got up to turn it off. The smoke had surrounded the shape of something through the door way starring at ME through the mirror, which was by the doorway. It looked like it had long stringy hair, hollow black eyes, big long teeth and claws. I screamed god help me Jesus and turned the light back on, and kept it on till my husband got there. We didn't see anything else that night but whole time I lived in that house I became very sick and lost a lot of weight, I weighed about 75 pounds. I couldn't eat or sleep, always got very nervous, felt like I was losing my mind.

I begin to hear something make a tapping noise across the kitchen floor. I thought it may be a big rat and I sat out all kinds of poison but nothing stopped it. So, I thought what if its a snake. I took a flashlight to bed with me so I could turn it on when I heard the noise to see if I could find out what it was. There was a street light that shined through the window a few houses away so when I turned around to turn the flash light on I saw a shadow about four foot tall coming across the floor making the tapping noise. It was a shape of my grandmother with a headscarf and carrying two plates coming in my direction. I screamed no I don't want anything keep it and threw the cover over my head for a few minutes and then looked again nothing was there. Then I heard a very scary voice say why don't you just put the pillow over your head and suffocate yourself to death because no one loves you or cares about you anyway, so you might as well kill yourself and get it over with. Then I heard another calm voice saying your children love you, your dad and aunt, husband loves you and I love you. Who will raise your children right. I told the voice that spoke to me, no I will not do it (kill myself) to get away from me and leave me along. And it was like a bee hive going off in my head.
I saw all kinds of lights flashing going off like an explosion.

The next day I was standing on my porch and some people drove by in a truck and came back and talk to me and said that the lord had told them to come and pick me up that there was a revival at church and said I could come if I wanted to. I told them I would go and at the church service that night when they made the altar call there was so many people there that I could not get out of the aisle. So I lifted my hands and said God, if you don't help me I'm going to die and there will be no one to raise my children right. I felt like a warm fire came over me and I did not know what it was, it scared me and I started to ask someone what it was. I just lifted my hands and continued to thank the lord. Very shortly after that I moved out of the house and began to feel so much better right away. I have pictures of that house that was talking at night and there was like light coming out of the windows that looked like hands. There were three of them that came all over the house. There is a lot more to the house but if you want to hear more I can tell you later.
Thank you for your time

- End Report -

It sure sounds like there was something going on in that old house. I'm sure I have read about other cases where the person experienced weigh loss due to paranormal activity.

I can understand where Debbie is coming from, I lived in a house that had activity in it. That activity is still happening today. I hope to tell all about that at some point.

Also, I have ask Debbie for the photos she talked about in her report. If she is able to get them to me, I will update the post to include them.

Thanks goes to Debbie for telling us about some of her experiences with the spirit world. 


Thanks
~Tom~

Mock up photo.

The story I'm about to tell you is an interesting one. Some of the people are pretty scared about it all. I will not name the actual place/building or the woman I talked with. I will just say this, this is a place I have been to many times and a place where I know several of the employees. The building itself is very old. I would guess the building, like many in this area, is around 100 years old or more. Of course, this build has been remodeled over the years but it basically looks the same as it did many years ago.   

This place/building is open to the public and like many businesses, there is a customer area in the front and an employee area in the back. The employee area is were a lot of work is done by a large number of staff, for most of the day. In the evening times and sometimes the early morning times, staff consist of only a few people, and sometimes just one or two.
 
Now, let me go back to the first. There is this woman I know very well and have known for many years. She became an employee of this company. As she got to know the other workers, they started to tell about a former employee who had killed himself and joked that he haunted the building. Some say he killed himself in the building, others said it was not in the building. But he was a long time employee of the company and I guess, he had an attachment to the place. The workers talked about odd things happening over the years and some just laugh about it all.

Well, over the years this woman I know has had odd things happen while she was working in the building. Stuff like doors slamming or the feeling of something in the room. The other employees tell of odd things as well. And one tells of  being touched when no one else was around. One person even told about seeing a dark shadow move across the room. Many times these events happened late in the evening or early in the morning, when staffing was light. On some occasions, as with the slamming door, it happens during the day, when more staff was around. This door that slammed, is a really old and very heavy door. There is also some reports of a foul smell from time to time, but as stated the building is old.

This woman that I know, also relayed to me some more of her personal experiences. Often times, she would be basically alone (again early morning or late evening) and she would listen to Pandora on her cell phone. Sometimes, there would be an odd interference come through her phone as she listened to Pandora. The funny thing about this is that sometimes during the day the staff would have a radio playing most of the day and it never got this "interference". The odd interference and weird sounds, made her a little uneasy but sometimes she would still listen to Pandora. Then, one day as she was listening to Pandora the interference started to come through again and then a voice said "Are you there?"

As you can imagine, this was enough for her to basically stop listening to Pandora for a while. She rarely even listens to it all now.

But that is not the end of this story. Very recently, as this woman was working a very early shift, again basically alone, when something happened. She told me she was not even thinking about all the weird stuff or the story about the guy haunting the building. She was just working and closing everything up. As she was making her final sweep, making sure everything was locked up, she catches a quick glimpse of a shadowy figure standing at the bottom of a set of stairs. She went on out the main doors and locked up. She told me, "Anything else that needed done can wait until the next morning."

The area where she seen this figure has no windows and it was already daylight outside.

I have personally been in the back area of this building a few times and I can vouch that the building is pretty creepy. It seem that any building that is around 100 years old, would or could have ghost in it to me. Years of work, births,deaths and stories....just waiting to be told but only if someone from the other side can get noticed by one of the current occupants.


With all these tales, I think it is pretty safe to assume that something is haunting this workplace. I hope to maybe have more on this haunted workplace in the days to come.

Thanks

Mission Point Resort
Some of you may already know that I just returned from a trip from Michigan, Mackinac Island and the Upper Peninsula. The UP was kind of on my bucket list as a place to visit, so it was good to get into that area.

Today, I want to talk about my trip to Mackinac Island and more specifically about the Mission Point Resort.  While I did not actually stay in the resort the history of haunting is intriguing to say the least. The island in general has some creepy history and I hope to share more about it in the coming days.

As for the Mission Point Resort, lets first look at some of it's history. Lets start with the name "Mission Point". In the 1820's , Reverend William Ferry built "Mission House" to house and teach Indian children. A few years later he established "Mission Church". The Southeast end of Mackinac Island became known as "Mission Point".

In 1954 more structures started being built in Mission Point. This included a theater and lodges. It was completed in 1957 and later in 1958 a movie sound stage was added. In 1979 that very sound stage was used to film the motion picture "Somewhere in Time" starring Christopher Reeve.

There was an old Indian prophecy that stated the following "Someday, on the east end of the Island, a great tepee will be erected. All nations will come there and learn about peace."  Oddly enough, the Main Lobby is one of the most distinctive architectural structures on the Island. Nine-ton majestic trusses, converging at a height of 36 feet, resemble a 16-sided tepee.

Another little bit of  interesting history, is that in 1970 the famous evangelist Rex Humbard purchased this structure. In 1977 Humbard sold the property and over the years it had some name changes. Over the years it was sold a few more times and the name was changed back to one the more accurately represented the history.

Now, what about the hauntings? Well, first you need to know that there is a cemetery on the island and it was relocated. The funny thing is, once it was all moved they had 3 or 4 more headstones than relocated graves. It was too late to find the missing bodies as structures were already being built in the former location of the graves. While this is not the exact area The Mission Point Resort is at, it still lends to the idea that disgruntled spirits could be on the island.  Then their is the story of Harvey. Harvey supposedly killed himself after being rejected by his then girlfriend and reports of him being seen on the island have followed. Plus there is several more stories and more somewhat dark history to the island.

The popular TV show "Ghost Hunters" also did a show on The Mission Point Resort. The original air date was 3/30/11, season 7 and carried the title "Frozen in Fear".  I have embedded the show for your viewing pleasure and it was one of the better shows from the ghost hunting gang. Check it out.


I enjoyed my trip to Mackinac Island and find the "interesting" history intriguing. I hope to share more about the island, it's dark history and my brief time there in some upcoming posts.

Thanks

Does the ghost of Abe Lincoln haunt the White House?

This is our second episode/post in our Mysteries series. I know this is a step away from everyone's favorite subject of Bigfoot, but maybe a little break is good for us.

In this post we will be talking about Abe Lincoln or better yet, the ghost of Abe Lincoln and the persistent tales of Lincoln hanging around the White House.

Grace Coolidge
Grace Coolidge, the wife of president Calvin Coolidge, is thought to be the first person to come forward and tell about seeing the ghost of Lincoln during her time at the White House. She reported seeing Lincoln in the Oval Office. She described Lincoln as looking out the window across the Potomac and that there was a sadness in the air.

While Mrs. Coolidge may have been the first to report seeing Lincoln, she sure wasn't the only one to report seeing and hearing him. There are numerous reports of foot steps and knocking that has been reported over the years.

Mary Eben, secretary to Eleanor Roosevelt, claimed to have seen Lincoln sitting on the edge of the bed putting on his boots. She also admitted to running out of the room screaming after seeing the ghost. Even Theodore Roosevelt claimed to have see Lincoln in the White House. Numerous staff members for various Presidents has all reported hearing and seeing Lincoln.

Winston Churchill


There are also reports of Lincoln's ghost being seen outside of the White House, but maybe the most famous and entertaining account of Lincoln's ghost was by Winston Churchill. Churchill was staying in Lincoln's bedroom while a guest at the White House. After taking a bath and drying off, Churchill lit a cigar and walked totally naked into the bedroom. Once in the bedroom Churchill saw the ghost of Lincoln leaning up against the fireplace. The rarely shaken and quick thinking Churchill greeted the ghost with "Good evening, Mr. President. You seem to have me at a disadvantage." Churchill stated Lincoln smiled and faded away.



It seems the ghost of Lincoln is not just confined to the White House grounds. Reports of Lincoln's ghost have also been reported at his grave site in Springfield, IL. Lincoln has also been said to haunt a house of a woman who was at the Ford's Theater when he was shot. 



Willie Lincoln, the son of Abe Lincoln, died in the White House at the age of 11 of Typhoid. His ghost has also been reported several times over the years.  Could this be one of the reasons his father Abe is still seen around the White House?


We know that the White House is full of secrets and at various times little tidbits of these secrets leak out. Just how many more sightings of the ghost of Lincoln have there been? We may never know for sure, but we will be waiting and watching for the next little leaked report to surface.

Thanks

A few months ago I finished read the book Ghost: A Natural History: 500 years of searching for proof and in it was a little about Harry Houdini and how he was interested in ghosts and mediums.

So, that got me to digging into some of the history of Houdini and led to the creation of a short documentary type video about him.

Here is the video, it is but a small glimpse into the life of Houdini


Houdini - (mini documentary)

Ghost Nuns?
I was just surfing around the internet, looking at stuff that I find interesting ....you know stuff like Bigfoot, Ghost, UFOS....ect.  I happened to run across this old picture and here is what was stated about it.

A photograph showing a group of girls sitting on a grassy mound. On the left side a group of miniature figures of nuns can be seen walking through the grass. The figures were not visible when the photograph had been taken.Photograph taken in 1961 and was given to Rosalind Heywood a Society for Psychical Research Council Member. No Copyright for the photograph exists. The photograph was later reprinted in the book Investigating The Paranormal by Tony Cornell in 2002. Author Mr. M. B

While most of us probably think this is nothing more than a double exposure, I still find it appealing. I guess it has a little to do with the fact I like old photography and then you add in the ghost element.  Plus I can't recall ever seeing this picture before.

In any case, I thought I would just play around with the photo and run it through some filters/effects. I guess I may as well share them....so here they are.



Just a slight adjustment in contrast to bring out the figures a little more.


A crop of the mysterious figures.


 I inverted the picture. The figures stand out. 


With this filter I don't think the figures look like Nuns at all. It looks more like rain coats. The figure on the far right looks more like a KKK member.




Now, what to you think about the photo? Is it a double exposure? Paper cut outs? Shadows? reflections?
Your guess is as good as mine. We do know that back in the late 1800's  and early 1900's that Spirit photography was a big deal and that a lot of pictures from that time period have been exposed as fakes. I know you guys remember the old Ectoplasm photos from back then. What was said to be "spirit energy" turned out to be nothing more the cheese cloth, material or tissue . Here is a photo to jar your memory.
  
Even knowing many of these old pictures where fakes, I still enjoy looking at them. It gives me a glimpse of the past and helps me realize that people were basically the same back then as they are now. The mysteries of our world keeps searching for answers.

Have a great weekend!

Thanks
