Kids got spooked at the Bangor Library Friday. The Bangor Ghost Hunters talked to a group of children and parents Friday. They explained how they investigate different places for paranormal activity. Kids got to see all the cool ghost hunter gadgets, like electromagnetic field meters and night vision cameras.
Bangor Ghost Hunters Founder and Director Harold Murray also used magic tricks to show the kids that some paranormal activities have a logical explanation.
“I put magic into it so I leave something unexplained for them, but yet I give them another one I explained,” Murray said. “So you have an explanation for one thing and not for another.”
The Bangor Ghost Hunters will be back at the Bangor Library Saturday for a presentation geared toward adults. The group will talk about experiences they’ve had on ghost hunts and bring some of the items they’ve taken from places they’ve investigated.
“We’re investigating paranormal activity throughout the city, but we’re also trying to uncover historical proof of hauntings” said Henry Flores, Director of Fantasmas.
Flores remembers the exact moment when he became interested in the paranormal. At age seven he had an experience he still carries with him everyday and that memory is the reason he keeps on investigating the unknown.
“I would see a lady just walk by…later on it became dark. I couldn’t see until I looked up at her face, it was black, she had no sockets. I guess i’m just still looking for that face” said Flores.
The Fantasmas have experienced many different encounters. Flores says after all of his investigations little scares him now a days but that wasn’t always the case.
“We were chasing something it went into this old building. We went after it to see if we could find documented proof…i heard it laugh at me. It wasn’t a human laugh. There were bats in the building. It smelled like flesh and rotten blood. Those are the signs that a demon was in an area” said Flores.
Flores is part of the concordia heritage association. For those that cannot handle the idea of investigating and being part of a paranormal team, the cemetery does offer tours. He says the tours always attract the spirits. For more information you can contact Flores at fantasmasonline.tv.
The Fantasmas are recording all of their investigations. They want El Paso to have its very own version of ghosthunters.
