Let’s dive into the spooky aspect of a home…the haunting of a home and the energy that can remain long after people have left.  Let’s talk about the psychology of what makes a house feel haunted and I’ll share a real-life story and talk about the inhabitants with Dr. Kristy Sumner a paranormal investigator where she shares the details of an investigation in a house on a lake. Something is still there, moving around, lurking in the shadows, making curious unexplainable noises.  Parental discretion is advised due to the graphic nature in which some people meet their demise and the discussion of the afterlife and darker things.
