Scared Ghost (EVP) at Waverly Hills
Another spirit speaks at the uber-haunted Waverly Hills Sanatorium. Angie Cline, co-founder of VIPER WV (www.viperwv.com) asks, "Does this man scare you?" (referring to another investigator). A disembodied voice replies, "yeah."This EVP was recorded on the 5th floor of the old hospital for the victims of TB. Other investigators in attendance were Don Hanauer of MRPS, and the operations manager for the St. Albans Sanatorium (www.stalbans-virginia.com) and Pat Bussard, founder of The Ghost Writers (www.ghostwritersonline.com).

Oahu, Hawaii Photo Trek Video Posted
The Hawaiian island of Oahu is magnificant. Clothed in peacock colors during the day, there are parts of this beautiful island that play host to darker forces at night. As you gain altitude from the sunny stretches of white sand to the precarious ciffs of the mountains, you can hear the voices of ancient Gods and Goddesses in the wind. Their message is that this island, created by the mighty Goddess Pele, does not belong to man but to the powerful ocean that holds her protectively in its watery arms.
The Ghost Writers went on a very productive ghost hunt while in Oahu and an interesting anomaly is posted above. However, not all of our activities were in the realm of the paranormal. Grab your backpack and follow us as we take you on a tour of blue Hawaii's Oahu.

Enjoy a journey through the extraordinarily and eerily beautiful St. Louis Cemetery No. 1. Founded in 1789, it was the first of New Orleans' famous above ground cities of the dead. There are several interesting photos in the album. The photo of the pyramid is Nicholas Cages' nine foot high crypt, which is at his disposal when needed. The white tomb you will see (there are two photos) is of the famous Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau's final resting place. Her tomb is marked with a series of three X's from individuals who have come to her tomb to beseech her for help. There is a photo of an old tomb, also marked with a series of X's. Is this the final resting place of another, though less well known, Voodoo priest or priestess? Just click on the photo below to be transported to New Orleans' first above ground city of the dead.
