Was a UFO Spotted Over Raleigh, NC?

A first hand account from APS CORE member, Beth! I saw something that could only be described as a UFO (in the literal sense of the word) a few weeks ago. And I’m not big into all that, as y’all know. It was Sunday night, August 6th, 2017 about 9:45pm at night on New Bern…


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…


When Ghosts Go Dormant

Oftentimes, when dealing with cases, a client will have an active case. Then, right before we come in, the activity stops. For the sake of terminology, we usually say that the activity is dormant, especially in a situation where, as far as we know, no resolution was enacted. This could mean a few different things….


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…

Why I Think the Ghost of Gina Hall Is Seen at St. Albans Sanatorium

I am a skeptic. When I hear the words “Orbs”, “Cry Baby Bridge” and “EMF Detector” I shake my head. I like facts. Orbs are dust. Every town has their own Cry Baby Bridge or Lane. EMF Detectors measure naturally occurring Electro Magnetic Fields, why is this paranormal? So when I start researching the history…


Next Investigation: St. Albans Sanatorium

We will be going in with the mission to investigate and research the claims of paranormal phenomenon. With the assistance of our Meetup members, we will be investigating all night! “It’s sure to be an interesting…


Is Modern Day Ghost Hunting & Investigating Disrespectful?

This perhaps may be an armchair critic rant, but given the amount of teams I’ve been working with in terms of consulting for them or doing classes and I’ve been noticing a trend. Now, this is merely an observation that I would honestly love to get input on for anyone who wants to pitch in…


Is One Coast More Haunted Than The Other?

We’re going to take a break from research and academic-y posts and I would like to share something with you that’s been on my mind. Since moving here to Raleigh, NC from San Diego, CA in June of 2013, I’ve been noticing that I experience much more paranormal activity on the east coast. My team…
