Shades of ‘Ghost Busters’


11/02/07 - River Falls Journal

Paranormal investigator and author Chad Lewis will be appearing at the River Falls Public Library on Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 7 p.m. as part of the Fall Author Series.

He will talk about the “Haunted Locations” guides he has co-authored, which include handbooks for visiting scary sites in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois and South Dakota.

Lewis, who lives in Eau Claire and holds a MS degree in applied psychology from UW-Stout, has investigated over 400 reported ghost sightings in Wisconsin alone. He uses what he refers to as “standard ghost research equipment such as night vision cameras, electromagnetic field meters, infrared thermometers, motion detectors, digital cameras, audio recorders, and 35mm cameras.”

“However,” he continues, “there is no piece of equipment that will replace curiosity and common sense.”

Would-be ghost busters can get by with a camera and notebook, Lewis noted.

Lewis has not limited himself to ghost chasing in the Midwest, but has trekked around the world in search of the paranormal — tracking vampires in Transylvania, hunting the Loch Ness monster, and pursuing ghosts in Ireland’s castles.

He is also the author of three “Hidden Headlines” books, compilations of unusual and bizarre newspaper stories in Wisconsin, New York, and Texas from 1860-1910.

In addition to being featured in several documentary series, Lewis is the host of “The Unexplained” radio and television series.
