Cemetery Jan 2008









This was an amazing hunt. We had Phil in tow if course ... http://fatpossum.blogspot.com/ you can watch the footage during his show Saturday night Jan 26th starting at 11pm ish on KTOV - see his blog for more details...

Anyway - this was a terrific chase... less than 5 minutes into the investigation my EVP recorder battery went dead & also my digital camera battery. Phil & Joe went to the back of the cemetery by themselves & when they hurried back to the front they reported a shadow figure following them down the fence line & by a tree. We all CLEARLY heard footsteps through the dry grass & we all stood perfectly still together - looking with flashlights & listening to the steps for quite some time. When we asked for a sign we all heard a thud like something hitting a tombstone. We all looked around the tombstone but could find nothing. When asked for another sign because Phil did not hear it - a loud ping on the metal fence was heard. Strange mist was photographed under the tree - double apparitions by a tombstone - and orbs galore. When we were leaving we asked for one more for the road & the fence less then 5 foot in front of us was pinged rather loudly. It was awesome & we can;t wait to go back - with new batteries in our recorder & plenty of back up n the car to see about getting some EVP in this very active cemetery! Check us out on KTOV Saturday night channel 21 on directv or channel 14 or 15 on charter I think. Check out the pics here! Thanks for reading - GHURU

A quick stop by one of our local cemetaries

This was at the same cemetary that the apparition came from - see our other page for details ( www.geocities.com/tamcan ) We did get some awesome temperature readings here. A few orbs, but the scariest thing was when a bird flew out of a tree at us & nearly landed on our heads! Must have had babies or something - or at least that is the only thing I can think of reality wise that would make a bird swoop on you like an Alfred hitchcock movie.

Goliad, TX Presidio La Bahia 10/08/07

One of our FAVORITE ghost hunting places. You can see older pics of Goliad at our other web page at www.geocities.com/tamcan Usually we have a TON of EVP from Goliad hunts, which we try to do at least once a year. This year was AMAZING, but not one whisper on the EVP strangely enough. We went to investigate the friar...the evil entity that has been reported in the Victoria Advocate from spotters in years past. He is supposed to watch over the quadrangle at Goliad & it is said you must remain very still if you see him as he is aggressive. Also in the Victoria Advocate ws stories about Goliad reportings at La Bahia of babies crying, a woman appearing & then floating above ground across the quadrangle & over the back wall to the cemetary by Fannin's Memorial. A woman in black crying in the church -suring the day has been seen by many over the years. With all this new stuff we uncovered we went fully armed with EVP, cameras, motion detectors, pendulems, writing tools for any ghostlly interaction, poloroid as well as digital cameras & plenty of energy drinks to make it through the night. The results were awesome! We caught as evidence mostly video - which is rare at Goliad. We have videos of the cameras being pushed around a little as if someone is fumbling with them ot turn them off. 2 Cameras were set up, so you can see nothing on the other camera, but then when it won;t turn off the meddling started on the other camera. The second camera after shaking around a few times acutally turned off which you can hear on the 2nd camera that was rolling. Then you see the group walking in from the quadrangel & checking the cameras...and you hear us saying - "Hey - this camera is off & the tape is not over & the battery is not dead-how did that happen?" We found out how later when we went through the tapes & saw it with our own eyes. Another crazy event that was caught on tape was while we were trying to communicate through a hangling glow light with the spirits. We were talking about the last time we were there how they kept turning off our TV monitor & then demanded the spirits to show themselves if they were really there. You can hear on the camera a loud grinding noise as if something very heavy was shoved across the floor. We of course jump up with the camera & ran into the room where the sound came from, but upon investigation we found nothing .... until we viewed the tape. The second the camera enters that room the sound gets VERY fuzzy - almost louder than our talking. The whole time we are in that room the sound is bad & then the second we walk out...crystal clear again. The fun didn't stop there...as personal experiences we heard ,,,,

Horses galloping on 4 different occassions.

Extremely loud banging from the office area - but us peeping through the keyholes & knocking on the door received no response.

While inside the quarters we heard a man clearing his throat so loud we were worried a real person had jumped the wall & was in there with us. We immediately went outside to invesitgate, but upon a thorough search inside & outside - there was nothing there...at least nothing human...

We did debunk a few things as always. There is a guest sign in book there where many people reported things like a strange large bird...which we saw-nothing paranormal about that... The toilet that flushes by itself - happened to us & it is because the toilet tank plunger was a little off causing water to trickle into the tank continuously...thus causing a flush ever so often. Good scary moment though when the toilet flushes itself - loved it. There was a local cat also, that invaded us. We thought we were hearing the baby crying sound, but when we investigated it...there was this sweet little kitty - meowing ever so softly as he walked through the Quadrangle...not sure how he got in or got out...but I filmed him-he was there.

We never saw the friar, we did smell a strong rotting smell for a while which has been reported before the friar reveals himself, but we never hit the pay dirt on that one & could not find any source of the smell. Either way - we had a BLAST this year & look forward to going again. Here are a few pics from this year, but nothing awesome - you can see more at our other page listed above.

Rialto Theatre Aransas Pass, TX

On 10/29/07 we had the pleasure of ghost hunting one of the oldest legends in Aransas Pass....The Rialto Theatre. There are alwyas ghost stories floating around, as far back as I can remember, about the Rialto. They are open & operating now & you can go see a show...and maybe you'll get lucky enough to see some other worldly audience too. I am not going to post any video on this one as there were so much dust particles in the air you could see them in the end of the flashlight...these show up as floating orbs on camera - so because we cannot confirm anything we saw on video-although some looked really amazing..we cannot use it to solidify our findings. Psychics have told us there are hauntings here & there has even been a sighting of a ghost cat as well as a lady on stage. We were able to acapture a few orb pics, but no EVP. There was a couch we all sat on that 2 of us had a burning sensation in our legs while sitting there. Here are a few pics that we did get.
