Congratulations to Los Angeles Paranormal Association for being the first group featured on our monthly spotlight. They are great group that we have worked in the past and they have always impressed us with their professionalism. If you haven’t checked out there website yet they can be found by going to Los Angeles Paranormal Association. As part of our monthly spotlight we decided to ask them a few questions so you could get to know them better.
What attracted you to the paranormal field? I find the paranormal to be fun and fascinating. I’ve always been intrigued by the unknown, the mysterious. Paranormal investigation is a journey and exploration into so many different ideas, theories and topics ranging from human psychology to philosophy to religion to physics and the very nature of our existence and reality as we know it. I love the history, the stories, the people. And creeping around in abandoned places.
How did you form your group? Grant and I just got together with a couple of friends and said, “hey, let’s go find some ghosts.” We started researching haunted places to visit, started a blog to chronicle our adventures and voila, the team was born.
What do you consider the most haunted location that you have ever investigated, and why? We’ve been fortunate to visit many amazing locations and some of most memorable have been Linda Vista Hospital, Alcatraz and the Old Washoe Club. It’s a close race, but I would consider the Goldfield Hotel the most haunted. There is just something special about the place for me.
What is your favorite thing to eat investigation? ROLOS!! Haha. But seriously, no matter what, we have to have coffee – usually before, during and after our investigations.
What is funniest or most memorable thing that has happened during an investigation? Screaming my head off after hearing humming in the surgical suite of Linda Vista Hospital was pretty funny in hindsight.
Los Angeles Paranormal Association (LA Paranormal) is an LA-based group of friends who came together with the common interest of investigating historical and/or reportedly haunted public locations and reporting on their findings. Since their beginnings in early 2008, the team has investigated some of the most reportedly haunted locations in the country, including Alcatraz, The Goldfield Hotel, Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, Linda Vista Hospital and more. They approach the paranormal from a journalistic and documentary perspective – their members have backgrounds in writing, journalism, film and video production, audio analysis and photography. Members of LA Paranormal have consulted on multiple paranormal-themed film and television productions and have been featured on various radio and television programs in the U.S. and Japan. They can be found online at LAghost.com.
