Don Monroe Case Files: The Roper


Don was preparing for a trek out in the wilds when something odd happened to this researcher - 

1970s: The Decade Obsessed With Witches and Devils



In the 1970s, Hollywood's new rage was witch-themed and devil-themed movies. They did a horrid job of explaining witches and confusing them with devil worship and sacrifice, as well as possession. Somehow many of these movies came out making the public confused about pentacles and witches as some kind of devil worshippers. It would appear that this trend had a lot more to do with youth's disillusionment with religion, desire to enter into cults and alternative spiritual practices.

Devil's Hole Caves - What Is Lurking In Them?


Devil's Hole - Death Valley, California

Around the world there are legends of caves and crevices that become named "Devil's Hole" for a myriad of reasons, but all of them are dark ones. Let's explore just some of the Devil's Holes found in the United States.

UFO Crash in the Grand Canyon?


I thought I'd put this out there... I went looking on Google Earth in the Grand Canyon for one thing, but my eyes noticed something strange. If that's a rock, it doesn't belong there. Let me know what you think!

Blue Orbs: Case of Spiritual Umbilical?


From time to time I get a case that is so genuine and intriguing that I need to share it with the hopes that if others have experienced it, they will come forward. The case of the blue orbs is one such case.

Summertime Campfire Tales


There is something primitively satisfying about a campfire. We like to gather around the warmth and light, warding off the chill and darkness behind us. But what does that darkness hold? That is the age old fear. 


Once the campfire is constructed, it is good to let your group get comfy, satisfied with some drinks and perhaps some s'mores or hot dogs.

You need to get people relaxed, comfortable and unsuspecting before you decide to wind up a tale that will make them afraid to leave the circle.

Don Monroe Case Files: Two Swamp Area Bigfoot Casts


Dennis Guern and I worked on measuring and examining this hands-foot cast from the US South. We also examined the "white cast" from the same area.

Blog Entry Saturday: The Meaning of Summer



We are well and truly deep into summertime now. As adults, we daydream more, gaze out the window, wish we were at the noisy swimming pool in the community center or digging our toes in some sand with a cold beer in our fist, but here we are at another work day. Let's find the meaning of summer by going back in time -

Are You a Superhero But Don't Know It?

Haunted House: Dealing With a House's History

Don Monroe Case Files: "Hands Foot" Cast


I was very pleased to see Don Monroe in person at the Payson Book Festival. He brought with him many casts for me to archive, measure, and examine details.

Arizona's Cryptids



Arizona may seem barren to many outsiders, but residents know that the state is extremely diverse in weather, flora and fauna. Some of the southwestern cryptids are quite interesting, as well. And, no, there are no sightings of the fictional Jackalope, although I certainly wish they existed!

Don Monroe Case Files: Cast of Handprint From "Spirit" Cave


Researcher Don Monroe shared with me an interesting handprint cast. It was from the cave where very odd things have happened (LINK). 

Do You Dare? The Bridgewater Triangle



A lot of my paranormal studies end up crisscrossing each other. You think you are investigating a Bigfoot situation and find UFOs and strange lights in the woods or perhaps you go out in search of ghosts and find there are missing people and creepy cryptids being seen locally.

Scariest Cave Finds



Caves are more than the sites of mines and ancient hieroglyphs, the burial places of giants, and homes for bats. They can also be haunted. And, why not? In desperate times, caves were utilized for sanctuary and sometimes standoffs and, given the geology, they seem like ideal vessels in a feng shui sort of way, to retain and hold a kind of amplified haunting that is held captive in a cul-du-sac formation. I am utterly fascinated with the haunted cave phenomena. I cannot think of a better spirit vessel.

Let's have a look at some more infamous haunted caves....

Blog Entry Saturday: Ancient Cannibalized Bone?


On any given day, I could be chasing mysteries from a wide variety of focuses. On this particular day, I had set aside time to study, photograph and document an unusual bone find in a remote cave in the Northwestern US.



This interesting and very old bone from a cave appears to be split open neatly, never gnawed on, but the marrow scooped out. This would indicate signs of cannibalism.

Stalker Between the Worlds: Spring Turns to Summer Presence


*Warning: Photographs and information in this ongoing series might be upsetting to some readers. Discretion advised.*

LINK TO SERIES START

This is an ongoing series chronicling several years' worth of encounters with bizarre, horrific, and taunting interplay between one innocent citizen and a stalker that defies description (at least in our known world).

This was an exceptionally well-documented series of events that may at times be too graphic or horrifying for some readers, but it is our hope that by sharing this experience, someone out there might recognize a set of circumstances that are similar.

We have advice to be given to anyone encountering what I am at a lack of words to accurately describe, so henceforth refer to it as…the stalker between the worlds.

It is about to come up in ebook form and Amazon, B&N and other sources. You can buy it today on the Mystic Publishers site  - LINK

This first in a paranormal romance series. In Ghost of a Chance (A SEEK Team Investigation), psychic Isabeau “Beau” Fraser is thrilled when her
billionaire client hires her and her friends to investigate the unexplained. But, she soon realizes it isn’t just ghosts doing the haunting, Marco Petrov and an unresolved history lurked in the shadows. While investigating a dusty mansion, an abandoned prison, a lonely lighthouse, and a ramshackle woodland home, her team gathers evidence of the afterlife as well as evidence of a longing that

Don Monroe Case Files: Bigfoot Braiding Obsession?


From the files of one of my favorite researchers, Don Monroe, another interesting find to discuss - Bigfoots' obsession with braiding.

Spooklights

Devil's Promenade

Some people call them earth lights, others spooklights, and ghost lanterns. Whatever they are called, they have baffled people for hundreds of years when wandering the woods or back roads and finding floating lights not attached to any explainable human creation. The history on some of these lights goes back to being incorporated in Native American legends.

Haunted Lighthouses and Haunted Beaches


Haunted Lighthouses

Lighthouses are lonely beacons, isolated, sometimes in rugged locations, associated with shipwrecks and isolated keepers, so they seem a natural romantic feature in ghost stories. But, is there a very real reason so many lighthouses are haunted?

The logistics and Feng Shui of a lighthouse seem to make it an ideal candidate to amplify anything that happened there, even become a sort of recording device. You have constantly moving water on rocks, a building usually made of stone, circular in shape with a great power source at the top, often times, metal railing circling within, a keeper who trudged up and down the stairs in daily duties repeatedly, and a round shape that holds energy within, trapping it. Then, you add to that tragedy, loneliness, and no medical help so people often died there. 

I guess the question becomes; why wouldn't lighthouses be haunted? 

Let's have a look at some famously haunted lighthouses -

It Was a Dark and Storm Night: What to do on a Storm Night


There is something about summertime storms that makes you start thinking about fall and Halloween.

Weirdest Things To Fall From the Sky



I remember in high school when SkyLab was falling in 1979. Everyone was talking about it, wearing t-shirts about it, and even anxious about where it would land. It began a curious interest in what else has rained from the sky that was bizarre or extremely rare, other than the usual meteorite. Let's take a look -

Five of the Most Haunted Roads in America


There is nothing like a trek in the summertime through green overgrowth on a narrow country road, twisting and turning without knowing what is up around the next bend, but it's even more spooky when you know the road has a reputation for unexplained mysteries, ghosts, spooklights, and weird creature sightings.

I'm going to share my top 5 favorite haunted roads in America.
