Ghost Hunters stars like Steve Gonsalves has never seen a ghost, leading some to call Ghost Hunters fake.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Ghost Hunters star Grant Wilson quit the SyFy show for “personal reasons.”
People are naturally drawn to the supernatural because they want to know whether there is life after death. So it’s possible some watch Ghost Hunters in hopes they’ll find evidence proving such things.
Steve Gonsalves is a member of the TAPS team in the Ghost Hunters show and he admits never actually seeing a ghost:
“What you would think of as the floating apparition, I’ve never seen that. I’ve seen a lot of things I can’t explain – objects moving, things falling that doesn’t make sense, smells, black masses, that sort of thing – but I’ve never seen an actual ghost.”
Even if Steve Gonsalves hasn’t seen a spirit himself he says Ghost Hunters “don’t need to fear them” is ready to be “looking for answers” for those who ask, “Is there life after death? Where do we go? What happens to the energy inside of our body?”
Speaking of which, ghost hunters are now flocking to a Kentucky hospital known for housing “thousands of people sickened by tuberculosis.” The favorite ghost stories for the hospital tell of a nurse who committed suicide on one of the upper floors. There’s also an angry, unwelcoming older male and the spirit of a small child nicknamed Timmy, who plays with balls that are placed around the hospital.
The Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville is even open to tourists according to Charlie Mattingly, who owns the building:
“It’s almost an everyday occurrence here when we have the overnighters come in, they all claim they see apparitions, ghosts, shadow movements, things like that.”
It’s stories like that which draw out the COPS crew, who are ghost hunters headed by a husband and wife team. Although “99.9 percent of the time” they say investigations are “a mild haunting” they believe they found solid evidence at place calling itself Fear Farm:
“Without a shadow of a doubt, that’s paranormal. Absolutely, this is good evidence.”
They’re looking at two photos where one frame is empty and then a second later the hunched form of a man appears. They also cited unexpected ghost hunting equipment failures. But Fear Farm is also 26 acres of corn mazes and five “normal” haunted houses. So, they’re claiming a fake haunted house actually has a real ghost. But as the COPS team admits, “We have skeptics, we have believers.”
