14th January 2018 Sarah Chumacero 496 views. 1 comments. General.

Mulberry Hill - The origin story of Picnic at Hanging Rock
19th November 2017 Sarah Chumacero 3142 views. 1 comments. Famous Paranormal Cases, General.
I recently visited and investigated the house that used to belong to Lady Joan Lindsay, the author behind the famous novel ' Picnic at Hanging Rock'. What makes this story even more fascinating was the claim that Linsday received visions in her dreams over a period of 2 weeks which led to the story of Picnic at Hanging Rock. It has been long debated because of this, could this fiction really be a true story?

Why is the paranormal referred to as pseudoscience
6th November 2017 Sarah Chumacero 770 views. 0 comments. General.
As investigators we often go around saying, "we take a scientific approach to investigating". Apparently we shouldn't be using this term because the paranormal is actually a pseudoscience. Here is why. Does it really matter? Depends on you and who you are trying to convince.

6th November 2017 Sarah Chumacero 2753 views. 5 comments. General.
People are very quick these days to label any sort of haunting where someone may feel uneasy as demonic. Why is there a trend to label everything demonic and what is considered to be a true demonic haunting?
