It's Halloween all year long for some local ghost-hunters!

It’s that time of year again. Although the Christmas decorations are already displayed to some degree, the prominent locations in the stores for the month of October are reserved for the spookiest time of year – Halloween! Monsters, jack-o’-lanterns and ghosts are everywhere you look and the 31st is still weeks away. The average person may feel a bit overwhelmed by All Hollow’s Eve but some think it may not be enough.

“Ghosts do not just come out on Halloween,” claims author and ghost hunter Vince Wilson. “This may be the time the media gives it the most attention, but we get reports on hauntings and paranormal phenomena all year long.”

Vince Wilson has dedicated his life to the world of the strange and the unusual. Not only is the founder of the Baltimore Society for Paranormal Research ( he is the president of the Paranormal Investigators Coalition ( and the owner of the Mysterious Maryland Tour Company ( Somewhere along the line he even managed to write two books.

“Ghost Tech is about the technology that ghost researchers use to find the disturbances that ghosts create in a given environment. Ghost Science explores the theories behind what ghosts or spirits are. For years skeptics have used science against the existence of life after death. My colleagues and I are asking the question, 'If ghosts exist, how.' To us, the evidence is overwhelming,” he said.

According to Wilson reports of ghostly happenings shouldn’t be anymore scrutinized than Francis Scott Key’s observation of the Battle of Fort McHenry. “What is history after all,” asks Wilson, “than eyewitness accounts? Why do we take it for granted that certain historical events actually happened based on eyewitness, but someone says they see a ghost and they get labeled a liar or a nut.”

Vince Wilson and his colleagues, fellow author Rosemary Ellen Guiley, vice-president of the Paranormal Investigators Coalition Jaime Lee Henkin and video/photography expert and Director of Operations Robbin Van Pelt have been investigating reports of the paranormal together since 2001. Each has had an interest in the supernatural long before that.

When he’s not hosting ghost tours at Edgar Allan Poe’s gravesite or doing haunted overnight excursions Wilson is out with Guiley, Henkin and Van Pelt investigating homes and businesses. With dozens of investigations under their belts they are without doubt the most experienced and professional group of ghost investigators in Maryland.
