Ghost Tours! We will be hosting several ghost tours at a couple wonderful, haunted locations this year. We will be at Magnolia Manor on Friday, October 18 and November 1st--and we will be the hosts of this year's Haunted Happenings event at the Woodruff Fontaine House on Friday, October 25! Both properties have their own unique stories, architecture, and type of entertainment, so we hope to see you at both! Tickets to the Magnolia Manor tours need to be purchased in advance on their website.
More Ghosts of War! With three of the six episodes now available to stream for free on the official Ghosts of War Vimeo channel, three more will be hitting over the Halloween season: Octagon Hall in Franklin, Kentucky, the Minton House in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, and the Deason House in Ellisville, Mississippi. All three will feature evidence gathered during our investigation, as well as interviews with folks at the actual sites.
More Paranormal Inc Podcast! Our fourth and fifth podcasts will be hitting VERY soon--and you will notice that the production value of the podcast will increase significantly with the 6th episode. We decided to try out five episodes to see if it was 'working,' and we are happy to say it is! So all episodes after the fifth will be recorded with better quality and produced with more music, bumps, etc. Listen to our podcasts right here (link is in the sidebar) or download them through iTunes.
The Ouija Experiment! Yep, another Paranormal Inc movie! It's in the works and we are lining out the details now. The film will feature all new locations and will test the idea that Ouija boards cause crazy things to happen in haunted places. So be prepared to have some fun watching this one!
There are also a couple more surprises in store for the Fall, but we will wait until we are a little bit closer to Halloween to reveal those. In the meantime, we hope to see you at the tours and keep watching and listening!

Unlike books on the paranormal that exaggerate events in order to make them seem more frightening, I have taken great pains to depict the real circumstances surrounding my investigation of this case. And rather than being a thinly disguised horror novel, Devil in the Delta is more a cautionary tale for would-be ghost hunters.
The names of individuals involved with this investigation (other than me) are changed in the book--but you will be able to hear some of them here within these audio files. During my trips into Mississippi, I gathered over fifty EVP's that include at least three ghostly voices. I also captured one odd photo that was (most likely) debunked--but I have included it here for posterity (and for those who have read the book and just want to see what I'm talking about).
For those who have read the book and want to hear some of the evidence, THANK YOU for buying Devil in the Delta! I hope you will read my other two books about hauntings, too (The Ghost Hunter's Field Guide and Ghost Hunting for Beginners). If you are reading this article and are interested in knowing more about the case and the investigation, I encourage you to pick up the book.
|Debunked Photo of Face by the Tree|
So, without further ado, here is the photo and a sampling of the EVP's I captured during my investigations at the Martin home. For maximum enjoyment, listen to the clips with headphones in a quiet room:
EVP 1: In this clip you will hear a female investigator speak, followed by a young girl. There was no young girl present during the investigation.
EVP 2: You will hear investigators speaking, then right after a male investigator you will hear the young girl's voice again.
EVP 3: This is the infamous rumble in the trailer. You will hear me say, "How long have you been here in this house?" This is followed by a rumble that shakes the trailer. You will then hear me say, "What was that?"
EVP 4: This is a strange EVP of a voice whispering and scratching, then there's a cough from the next room (an investigator), followed by a series of fast raps.
EVP 5: The next two clips were recorded while the house was empty. In this one there is a male moan and knock.
EVP 6: The house is still empty, but the recorder records some odd movement in one room, followed by a heavy bang.
EVP 7: The next two EVP's were captured while investigating. You can hear investigators speak from an adjacent room, but in the room with the recorder (which is empty) there is an odd voice whispering.
EVP 8: This was recorded a few seconds after EVP 7. It is the whispering voice again.
EVP 9: This EVP was recorded in the empty trailer. You will hear yet another voice whispering. It sounds very close to the recorder.
EVP 10: In this clip you will hear a female investigator say she "needs batteries." Right after this, there is the clear sounds of a young girl humming. Once again, there were no young girls in the house.
EVP 11: This EVP is right after two female investigators say, "Lets go." You will hear a male voice whisper, "Look out!" Then I say something. The "look out" is the EVP.
EVP 12: Here you will hear a clear voice whisper "I know it."
EVP 13: In this clip you will hear one of the clients talking about the case with investigators. In the middle of the conversation, you will hear a ghostly voice say the word "kinfolk."
EVP 14: This clip was captured a few minutes after EVP 13. You will hear the client mention her grandfather; when she does, the clear sounds of a male crying out can be heard. That is the EVP.
EVP 15: During my last visit, the trailer was missing windows. So in this clip you will hear a loud cadence of crickets and an odd voice speaking from within the empty trailer.
EVP 16: The crickets are heard here again--but this time there is the sounds of a male moaning. The house is empty during this recording, too.
EVP 17: You will hear a female investigator ask, "Can you see the lights from where you're at?" She is answered by a ghostly 'uh huh' that is said twice.

Ghosts of War is live! Our documentary, now turned into an online series, kicked off February 28 on our official Vimeo channel. The episode features the haunted Eldred House in Eldred, Illinois. You can learn more about the Eldred House on their website. In the coming months, seven more episodes of Ghosts of War will be hitting the channel (one per month)--including episodes that feature Magnolia Manor, the Deason House, Octagon Hall, the Minton House, Harney Mansion, and several Civil War battlefields that are known for their hauntings. Follow our channel on Vimeo and be sure to add us on Facebook to get advance notice of Paranormal Inc events.
The next announcement involves Rich's new book Devil in the Delta. The book will be released on May 8 and will be available nationwide in book sellers, as well as online. You can even pre-order the book on Amazon at this link. The book features the investigation of one of the strangest cases Rich has ever been involved with--and is sure to entertain!
Lastly, we want to announce that Paranormal Inc will be shooting a second documentary over the year that focuses on the ever-controversial Ouija board. In addition to exposing ridiculous superstitions involving the device and discussing the board's history, the Paranormal Inc team will be putting the 'magic powers' of the game to the test: we will be taking five different Ouija boards to five different haunted locations with five different teams to see if the board actually instigates paranormal activity. Should prove to be an exciting experiment--and hopefully an even better movie!
As always, stay tuned to this website and our Facebook page for more P.I. news and info--and always feel free to send us suggestions, questions, etc. via our email@example.com email address. Cheers!
