Haunted Lafayette: Exploring the ‘why’ of ghost hunting | Archive


FOWLER, Ind. (WLFI) – A 2019 poll found that 46% of Americans believe in ghosts.

This number is increasing with more paranormal shows making it mainstream.

Ghost hunters work with science to prove or disprove what they find.

Using tools such as cameras, audio recording devices and electronic field strength meters, investigators can examine the environment to find an answer.

Most of the time people answer the question of what something could be.

Dwight Snethen with My Haunted Fowler explained how sometimes it’s about that possibility that something is there, not the guarantee.

“I think for me, I don’t always believe in something, but I believe it’s possible,” Snethen told News 18. “When you think of Bigfoot, for example, it’s partly either that ‘they really lived, and they’ve learned to hide, or the stories were carried, and the tradition is there.’

Snethen also told News 18 that you don’t need fancy equipment to be a paranormal investigator.
