Paranormal Q&A: Para Sceptic

Welcome to Paranormal Q&A! In this series, I interview paranormal investigators, authors, and more to learn about their interests and experiences in the field. If you’re interested in being featured, contact me here or email me at ghostsghoul@gmail.com. This week, I talk with Para_Sceptic, a paranormal researcher in the U.K.

Why are you interested in the paranormal?

It’s the pure unknown factor. It is in our human nature to question things we don’t understand and think paranormal research is proof of that.

There were three experiences throughout my life that always made me want to question what was going on. But at the time, i just accepted it and carried on with life.

I started investigating with my girlfriend to find out if any of the paranormal claims were real. After a while, we started getting EVPs and were hooked on the paranormal from that point.

Ghost Photo: The Haunted Graveyard

Does this photo show a ghost at a historic graveyard in Sydney?

Taken by paranormal investigators on Halloween night, the picture appears to show a wispy, white figure lurking in the background of St. Bartholomew’s Cemetery.

“We think it’s moving towards us,” investigator Kelly Ryan told The Mirror last December. “It has legs, arms. We think it’s a male. We’re not claiming this is the spirit of a human being, we’re just saying this is an anomaly.’’

St. Bartholomew is more than 175 years old, and locals believe a former jockey and a young girl may haunt the church’s historic cemetery. What do you think of the image?

10 Haunted Places in Alaska

Alaska may be sparsely populated, but “America’s Last Frontier” has no shortage of ghosts. From former brothels to icy creeks, here are 10 of the most haunted places in Alaska.

Old Jesse Lee Home for Children – Seward

The Jesse Lee Home for Children opened in 1926 and housed hundreds of orphans until a earthquake damaged the building in 1964. The huge quake allegedly killed several children who now haunt the dilapidated property. Visitors experience feelings of dread and despair, hear the giggles of unseen children, and see shadowy figures flit past the windows. The faint sounds of jump ropes and bouncing balls are also common.

Ship Creek – Anchorage

The story goes that in 1987, someone murdered a native Alaskan woman near Ship Creek. Now the victim, Marie, reportedly haunts the area to warn drifters about the dangers of loitering. Some say Marie appears only to other native Alaskans. Others claim Marie extends her kindness to all, even going so far as to pull a blanket over homeless men or women sleeping near the creek. Marie appears to favor the area between the old ANS Hospital and the railroad terminal.
