Founder and director of the Georgia Ghost Society, Bob Hunnicutt joined the program to discuss his 18 years of research into haunted Southern residences, businesses and historical landmarks. Despite the area?s rich history, he said, the South?s many haunted locations have been, until recently, overlooked and that Southern ghost hunting groups are "breaking new ground everyday."
He detailed some of the means and methods of his investigations, describing the process of ghost hunting to be "like going fishing." Hunnicutt estimated that his group gets around 500 investigation requests per year. Along with rigorous background testing, he expressed the need to stay all night on a ghost hunt saying "there?s no way you can go into a location for just a few hours and hope to get anything."
Hunnicutt also presented four EVPs that were recorded during one of his group?s investigations. The spirit alleged to dwell in the house had been communicating with a young child on a cordless phone and the EVPs were captured on the family?s answering machine. While the chilling voices in the recordings resembled that of a child, Hunnicutt warned that "just because it sounds like a child, doesn?t mean that?s what you are dealing with."
