Recently Mark Vernon has had one of his many paranormal videos from his You Tube Channel featured by the press online including sites such as: The Wakefield Express, The Daily Mail  and The Mirror.

News From The Spirit World contacted the fifty year old self professed paranormal investigator and clairvoyant and asked him to tell us more about the video’s origins as well as more about Vernon himself and what he does in the paranormal universe.

What we got, besides some interesting video and photographic evidence to consider, was a compelling story about a man with a couple ghost companions and also offer from Vernon to use his gifts to help others with paranormal problems for free…

Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Jon Gray is only in his second year pitching for a Major League Baseball club, but at twenty-four years old already shows promise to be a major contributor to his team.

While surely Jon Gray will still be throwing sliders and acquiring strike outs for years to come, he also has an interest in paranormal investigation, which he does in his spare time away from baseball.

Gray formed his interest from his own encounter with the paranormal, which happened when he was just ten years old.

That experience made Jon Curious enough to trade in his pitcher’s mitt for a tape recorder and K2 reader in the off season…

Usually I don’t post many news items that involve individual paranormal investigators or groups unless they have captured something interesting, but in this case I wanted to point out this story as it someone within the community doing something for a charitable cause.

Thomas Warrington from Sleaford will spend 24 hours in a haunted nuclear bunker from the 1950’s to raise money for Cancer Research UK in May of this year.

The bunker, which is one hundred and twenty-five feet below ground was decommissioned in the 1990’s and now is used for historical tours. The bunker can be entered from a passageway from the cottage that sits above it in Essex.

Warrington seems to be excited about the opportunity as well, judging from his statements about the upcoming charity event:

The Daily Post recently published an article online which tells the tale of Paul Rowland, a paranormal investigator who seems to have been witness to many strange events going on at Plas Teg, a Jacobean house in Pontblyddyn, Wales.

In the past Rowland claims to have captured the images of two ghost children on the infamous property which has been the subject of much exposure and debate including being featured on Extreme Ghost Stories and Most Haunted, including their Halloween event in 2007.

Plas Teg even had a visit from the pop  group Girls Aloud in 2006 for the television special Ghost Hunting With…Girls Aloud.

Although Plas Teg is considered one of the most haunted locations in Wales, if not the world, recently it added another notch on it’s paranormal belt when Rowland claimed to have captured the audio of a barking ghost dog during a seance held at Plas Teg.

Capture

Thirty-Four Year old Kerry Katona, who sings in the all girl pop group Atomic Kitten, has recently stated that she she thinks she is experiencing a haunting.

Believing the situation to be serious, the pop star got her house in Oxfordshire cleansed by a psychic medium.

The paranormal events taking place in the residence even mimicked the infamous Amityville Horror when Katona kept finding large amounts of flies in her home.

Thankfully, these flies did not create too much of a buzz as they were dead, but that still did not make Katona feel any safer, as she feels it is a bit more personal:

I love dogs, they are amazing creatures that at certain times of my life have been among my best friends.

Dogs have also been trained to do wonderful tasks such as leading the blind, sniffing out bombs and drugs and watching out for our dwellings while we are away, protecting the property from intruders.

But what about a dog who is being trained to sniff out ghosts and other paranormal activity?

Holly Goddard believes it is possible and thinks her dog Glimmer might be the world’s first ghost seeking pooch.

A lot of people I have met over the years that either are or claim to be paranormal investigators or have a strong interest in the field have very little knowledge and experience in an area of study, which to me should be a prerequisite to any one who wishes to study the field seriously.
