Are Hauntings Just Meant to Be Experienced?

This may seem like an odd post considering APs is so centric in research and data collecting. But, hear me out. Right now, we live in a society where we are always looking down on our phones or watching the world through a computer. That has translated into how we investigate the paranormal. While I…


Book Review: “The Ghost Studies” by Brandon Massullo

I love any and all things paranormal. Whether it be related to cryptozoology, hauntings, religion or ufology, if it’s anything mysterious or spooky, down the rabbit hole I will go. One thing I love most about the paranormal community is that people love to share their stories, opinions and ideas. That’s why I always jump…


With You In Your Dreams

We’ve all been there when it comes to having lost loved ones in our dreams. Some will say that it’s our loved one actually visiting us while we snooze. Others will say it’s all in our mind and that we’re projecting our stress, thoughts, and more and they come across as symbols. I have always…

Our Fascination with ITC

Ghost boxes, shack hack radios, Frank’s Box, Echovox, oh my! Instrumental Trans-Communication, better known as ITC. If you’re involved in the paranormal community and/or investigating, you’ve probably seen this term A LOT and might have even participated in said practice. ITC is a technique of using electronic means to communicate with ghosts. In this day…

If this sounds rather off, that’s because it is. How often do we prime ourselves before an investigation, and then we end up…


Moving Coffins: The Mystery of the Chase Vault in Barbados

The coastal town of Oistins, Christ Church, Barbados was a British colony where the main economy was tobacco and cotton. There was unrest not only in the town where they had slaves imported but also below ground. I came across this story about a month ago while looking for alternate poltergeist cases besides Enfield. I found…


The Waning Novelty of Ghost Hunting

As I prepare for our team’s upcoming expedition to Gettysburg, I find myself reflecting on the ghost hunting community. I want to be very specific when I say “ghost hunting” because I don’t want it to be confused with paranormal research. While the trend of ghost hunting is fading a bit thanks to the dwindling…


Sweet Dreams: The Haunted Bed of North Carolina’s Executive Mansion

North Carolina’s Executive Mansion, also known as the Governor’s Mansion, is located in Downtown Raleigh.  The stunning city-block sized building on Blount Street began it’s construction in 1883, and was built mainly using Prison Labor.  The mansion is built from natural materials found in North Carolina, meaning a lot of red brick.  One fascinating piece…


Are You a Recreational Ghost Hunter? Stay Out of People’s Homes

One thing that APS is all about is research. We are more than a team that ghost hunts recreationally. Don’t get me wrong, there is a time for that. But when it comes to having a team, I wanted APS to be something that stands out from the rest of the groups out there. I…
