A new ghost hunting dog, Maddie, joins the cast of "Ghost Hunters" this week at the Alex Johnson Hotel. This dog, which is trained to hunt ghosts, senses things that are there and cannot be seen. As the newest member of the TAPS "Ghost Hunters" cast, Maddie has senses that are so much better than humans and proves to be a great asset in alerting the team when she feels a ghostly presence around.
The hotel that they visit has had so many ghostly occurrences, that workman have left the hotel and would not come back. Maddie makes her debut at this hotel and proves to be a new viable member as she does act up as she senses things that cannot be seen. The team investigates growling sounds that come out of a crawl space in the ceiling. In room 812, the most active room for paranormal occurrences, two of the team members kept getting touched on their head. The EMF readings spike high in the area they feel someone touching them. This hotel looks like it is haunted, as they also catch a lot of evidence on film.
What the different is with this show, "Ghost Hunters," is that the TAPS team actually set out to disprove, or debunk claims being made that a place is haunted. They try to recreate the occurrences that people are reporting as a haunting and explain it with something of a scientific nature instead of the paranormal. This doesn't always work and it looks like the Alex Johnson Hotel is one of these places to really have paranormal activity going on.
The "Ghost Hunters" catch images, voices and movements at this hotel that cannot be explained from any other natural source. This is a frequent occurrence with this show, paranormal activity is alive and well today in many of the locations that this show has visited. Now with Maddie, the dog, on board, she might be able to lead them in the right direction more quickly than it takes to explore the entire building they are investigating.
Jason Hawes created The Atlantic Paranormal Society, or TAPS, with friend and fellow plumber Grant Wilson. While Jason has never revealed what his personal paranormal experience was that prompted him to start investigating haunting, it was vivid enough to make him a believer. Both Jason and Grant are part of a small, blue-collar Rhode Island community which is the same place that many of the TAPS members were born and raised.
His own highly personal paranormal experience made him set out to discover all he could about the after-world. These experiences in the form of ghost hunting, are shown in a reality show on the Sci-Fi Network. The show "Ghost Hunters" has single handed changed many peoples opinion on ghosts.
One of the biggest pieces of evidence ever caught on film that would point to ghosts as being the real thing, happened during their investigation at a light house. This is when the camera actually picked up a chair moving on its own. Their investigations have turned up recording voices, things moving on their own, as well as ghostly apparitions.
