Unseenpress.com, Inc. and Historic Indiana Ghost walks and tours was developed in 2000 by Nicole Kobrowski, a Hoosier native and Michael Kobrowski, a Indiana transplant. Nicole’s cultural roots go back almost 200 years in Indiana and US history. She is a self-proclaimed “mutt” with family ties in Native Americans and six European countries. Her love of history was cultivated in Europe and through her other travels and journeys. Traveling extensively, Nicole feels the call of her Indiana roots calling her back to a place she calls home.
Her involvement with the paranormal started when she was very young because of personal experiences. Since that time, she has been a voracious reader and investigator of the paranormal and works towards being able to use qualitative and quantitative scientific methods and instruments to provide proof of paranormal existence. Education is a large part of her life and she is currently finishing her doctoral degree at Ball State University.
Michael Kobrowski was born and raised in Germany. His father’s family came from eastern Poland after being displaced in WWII and his mother’s family came from Bavaria. He has always been interested in the paranormal and sci-fi worlds and has developed a strong bond with real paranormal stories and experiences. As a systems, programming and computer support consultant, Michael has been able to use his talents to develop a number of gadgets for use in the field.
The Westfield “Ghosts of the Underground Railroad” tour began in 2001 when Nicole and Michael decided that the history and ghosts of Westfield were too interesting to keep bottled up in suburbia. Through their writing and research, Nicole and Michael developed a tour based on the real paranormal stories and history of the area. The tour was a huge success and the business was expanded to include Noblesville, Indianapolis and other Indiana Cities. Currently, the company also offers three different bus tours as well.
Unseenpress.com, Inc. released its first much awaited book in 2006 and currently has 8 books in process. “Haunted Backroads: Central Indiana, was well received and continues to be a popular read on the Internet.
Unseenpress.com, Inc. now employs 5 professional storytellers and continually adds more tales to their tours. Many times on the tours, guests will report spirit activity through feelings, photos— and touch! The company prides itself in that no part of its tours are staged, nor are special effects used. As Nicole and Michael are fond of saying, “If you see or feel something on the tour, it is truly your reality.”
These tours have been recently voted #1 by the a poll of people who have attended ghost tours in Indiana. Unseenpress.com, Inc. and Historical Indiana Ghost Walks and Tours has been featured on CBS-WISHTV 8, Fox 59, in the Indianapolis Star and Intake Magazine, and in the Noblesville Daily Times. It has also been featured nationally in Better Homes and Gardens Magazine, Midwest Living and other publications. Information has also been written in a variety of paranormal organizations’ publications. Read more news coverage about us here.

THE STARCHILD SKULL is a unique 900-year-old bone skull found in Mexico in the 1930s. The Starchild Project is an informal organization which began in 1999 when Ray and Melanie Young, the owners of the Starchild Skull, asked Lloyd Pye to head research efforts to determine what caused the unusual shape and properties of the bone. The results uncovered by Pye’s team ruled out all known deformities, and presented the scientific community with a bone profile never before seen on Earth. http://www.starchildproject.com/

Hero Paranormal investigate and research verified reports and sightings of anamolous activity while protecting those involved. Finally a research group situated in Utah’s famous Uintah Basin. A hotbed for UFO’s, many types of craft, crypto-odditites and high strangeness have been reported in this area for years.
Skinwalker Ranch is a ranch located in the Uintah Basin of Utah. It has been the focal point of many paranormal events. The area surrounding the ranch is just as active. UFOs, creatures of every shape and size, and mysterious small intelligents lights are common. The ranch has for some reason gotten all of the publicity when in reality the entire area is alive with activity. The former owners of the ranch where a family called the Shermans, they were so tormented and harrassed by all the paranormal activity that they sold the ranch to a Las Vegas Tycoon who has been doing scientific research there in one form or another ever since. Native Americans believe the entire area known as Skinwalker Territory is cursed in some way shape or form. A Skinwalker is difficult to describe but not unsimilar to a Native American Witch with a great deal of Black Magic prowess. They are said to be able to take the forms of different animals and Shapeshift. Many werewolf like creatures have been sighted in the area and are know to run alongside vehicles. I have dropped everything and dedicated my life to the research of the variety of extreme strangeness, my name is Ryan Burns.

Shannon Lusk and Scott Sukel of the Ohio State Mansfield Reformatory talk with Nathan S and Magnus Apollo about the Ghost of the famous prison seen in The Shawshank Redemption and on Ghost Adventurers.
Built in 1834, the Ohio Penitentiary was actually the second Ohio Penitentiary, the third state prison, and the fourth jail in early Columbus. In April 1955 it housed an all-time high of 5,235 prisoners. Most prisoners were removed from the prison by 1972 with the completion of the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility, and the facility was closed in 1984. The state sold the Ohio Penitentiary to the City of Columbus in 1995.
Stone walls and iron bars they’re still here, but what of the humanity, if you can call it that, of the old Ohio State Reformatory at Mansfield. What of the 154,000 inmates who passed through it’s gates in it’s 94 years as a working prison. Not to mention their keepers, the Wardens, and the Guards, the gravediggers, and the rest, what of them remains? As it turns out, more than you might think. No matter what their crime, some sent to Mansfield have never left. They rest unclaimed in a cheerless graveyard just outside the fence. 215 numbered markers laid out row on row. Most were victims of disease, influenza, tuberculosis, but some died of less natural causes; From the violence, that is all to common inside any prison and was far from unknown in this one. And the worst of it occurred well away from the main cell block with their rows of cages stacked tier on tier, and inmates, one or two to a cell. There were too many eyes, too many witnesses here, no the worst of it was reserved for a far lonelier place, deep beneath the prison ground. A place called local control, or solitary, by some, known by everyone else as the hole. Near total isolation can crack all but the toughest of cons, but none was so alone that there wasn’t room for death. At least one inmate managed to hang himself, another set himself on fire, once two men left too long in a single tomb like cell, only one walked out, leaving his cellmate’s body behind, stuffed beneath a bunk. Could there be other similar surprises? Or words left over from the days before the prison closed? Even when they’re empty, some swear something walks these halls. It isn’t enough for contemporary visitors not to wonder off alone while sight seeing, what‘s become one of Mansfield’s more popular tourist attractions. But the bloodiest single incident in the old prison’s history occurred outside it’s walls. In July 1948, when the Reformatory’s farm boss, his wife and daughter were kidnapped and shot to death by two parolees bent on revenge. A six state manhunt for the so called mad-dog killers ended in a shootout that left Robert Daniels of Columbus in custody and his partner, James West dead. “I’ll get the Chair” Daniels told police as he signed the confession. And on January 3rd, 1949, he did. A year later in 1950 disaster struck again. This time, here in the living quarters of the Warden himself. The Warden’s wife, removing a jewelry box from a closet shelf dislodged a pistol from it’s hiding place. When it hit the floor, the gun went off inflicting a fatal wound. And within the decade, even more bad luck. The Warden, hard at work in his office, suffered a heart attack and died. All this was nearly 40 years ago and more, how then to explain the voices shaken tour guides swear they hear today? Man and woman talking, to faint to understand, to persistent to ignore and chilling to listeners who think they’re alone, only to find themselves apparently eavesdropping on the warden and his wife locked forever in an endless conversation from beyond the grave.

Bonnie of Ghostlytalk joins Nathan S. of the Ghostman & Demon Hunter Show as we talk to Derek Bartlett of Cape Cod’s Haunted History Tour.
Derek formed CAIPRS in August 2001. Derek has always been looking for answers. These questions started as early as his childhood while hearing local legends and stories of New England ghosts and shipwrecks. Since forming CAIPRS he has not only found a dedicated team who seek the same answers but has found more questions as to how and why paranormal events happen around us. Derek believes in a pragmatic, scientific approach to ghost hunting and uses both technical equipment and intensive historical research in his case work. CAIPRS, led by Mr. Bartlett is involved with cases that span from New England to New Orleans and beyond. Derek is a former US Marine and employs the concepts of both discipline and an intense theoretical approach in his work. A self described “skeptical believer” he is not out to debunk everyone else’s work as much as he is to prove his own findings. He maintains a high standard for CAIPRS and feels that leading by example is not only better for his own group, but for the overall perception of paranormal research groups as a whole. Both Derek and CAIPRS are based in West Barnstable, Massachusetts.

G&D talk with Lanaia Lee, author of Skulls of Salvation, about 2012, the end of the world, magic and all things on peoples minds as we come closer to what many believe is the end of the world. The same things Lanaia puts in the fictional books called the “Of Atlantis” series.
Born in New Bedford Massachusetts, Jeff Sylvia grew up an alter boy and confirmed Catholic. He believed strongly in God, and the devil, heaven and hell, and the struggle between good and evil. “I remember at a very young age pondering the afterlife”. Although he did believe in life after death, the though of communication with the dead was a big leap. “I once looked at my wife like she was nuts, but then I educated myself”. It was when he moved to the Leominster, MA condo, (featured on A & E’s Paranormal State) that unexplained phenomena began to take place, and the need for answers and fascination with the paranormal took shape in his life.
We talk to Tim Miller, President of FlatSigned Press about President Gerald R. Ford’s Limited Edition Book “The John F. Kennedy Assassination” and Comments on President’s Nixon, George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush.
The strange-but-true history of Maggie Fox, 19th-century founder of the American Spiritualist movement, haunts a 20th-century journalist in this double-barreled tale of love and loss. Mackin (Dreams of Empire; Queen’s War; etc.) skips between Fox’s story and that of middle-aged magazine writer Helen West, who takes on an assignment to write an essay about Maggie and her sister Katie. In 1848, the two inventive children drew crowds by claiming that they were receiving spirit messages at their home in upstate New York; in fact, they had devised a clever system involving hidden hammers and cracking joints. The “Hydesville Rappings,” as they were dubbed, gained popularity, and the Fox girls were swept off to New York City, where they performed s‚ances for the likes of Horace Greeley. As Helen uncovers this bizarre tale, she begins to feel a kinship with Maggie, an unhappy child who grew up too quickly in a harsh environment. Like Helen, who has been mourning the death of her married lover, Jude, for three years, Maggie also lost her one great love, Arctic explorer Elisha Kent Kane, and spent the rest of her sorrow-filled life communing with his ghost. Although Helen is not a believer at first, she soon finds herself spooked by mysterious bumps in the night. She believes she feels Jude’s presence, and a desperate hope of seeing him again persists even as a new man attempts to woo her. Mackin shifts skillfully between these two atmospheric worlds, and once she tones down the overwritten prose of the first few chapters, the dual narrative acquires rhythm. Intelligent if predictable in its setup, the novel pays homage to two strong women separated by history but united in spirit.
For ten years, Morbid Curiosity was a one-of-a-kind underground magazine that gained a devoted following for its celebration of absurd, grotesque, and unusual tales — all true — submitted from contributors around the country and across the world. Loren Rhoads, creator and editor of the magazine, has compiled her favorite stories from all ten issues in this sometimes shocking, occasionally gruesome, always fascinating, anthology.
This quirky book is filled with tales from ordinary people — who just happen to have eccentric, sometimes peculiar interests. Ranging from the outrageous (attending a Black Mass, fishing bodies out of San Francisco Bay, making fake snuff films), to the more “mundane” (visiting a torture museum and tracking real vampires), this curiously enjoyable collection of stories, complete with illustrations and informative asides, will entertain and haunt readers long after the final page is turned.
We welcome back author Melissa Martin Ellis about her new book “Everything Ghost Hunting.” Melissa resides in Rhode Island and has taken classes in ghost-hunting at The Atlantic Paranormal Society in Warwick (TAPS). She was assisted in her research by members of TRIPRG, the Rhode Island Paranormal Research group, as well as Nathan Schoonover of the Ghostman and Demon Hunter Show.
She has collected photographs of unexplained and paranormal phenomenon for decades and is an avid paranormal investigator.
Melissa is a freelance writer and photographer with more than twenty-five years of experience. Her work has appeared in such diverse publications as The Boston Globe, Rhode Island Monthly, Newport This Week, Balancing the Tides, The Providence Journal, Horsemen’s Yankee Peddler, and Newport Life Magazine.

During his entire childhood, Hougan Catela was exposed to several Christian based religions including Pentecostal, Mormon, Jehovah’s Witness, Southern Baptist and Nazarene and possesses considerable knowledge of the Bible. His intense exposure to several traditions throughout his life developed his deep spiritual connection so much so, that Hougan Catela studied other esoteric paths including Freemasonry, Enochian, Native American Hopi and Vodou.
Shane was literally called from Haiti in Oct 1994 with then partner, Sallie Ann Glassman and was told kanzo initiation had been arranged for them and when could they arrive to Haiti? Although he had not been searching for this path, nor asked anyone to inquire about initiation, he could not deny the Lwa and decided to kanzo as Hougan Supwin in Nov, 1994 in the suburb of Bel-Air, Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, West Indies. This took place about 3 weeks after the United States invaded Haiti and re-installed Jean-Claude Aristide as president.
It was at this time Hougan Catela gave his life and full commitment to Bondje and to Vodou. His lineage at that time was through his Papa Edgar Jean-Louis and Papa Silva Joesef. When they returned to the United States, Hougan Catela and his then partner founded and began Island of Salvation Botanica and The Simbi-Sen Jak Ounfo, in New Orleans, LA.
Hougan Catela co-owned and operated Island of Salvation Botanica, conducted all weekly Vodou ceremonies in the temple, established the first public ceremonies on behalf of the City of New Orleans to combat crime, created and conducted the now famous public ceremonies to protect the city from hurricanes, until December of 2001.
During this span of 8 years, Hougan Catela made numerous visits to Haiti to further his knowledge and studies in the Haitian Vodou tradition as often as possible. Due to the dedicated and service to the Vodou religion Hougan Catela was creating through his Botanica and Vodou Temple, he was invited to Australia in 1997 to teach and conduct seminars on the Vodou tradition, which he humbly accepted. He provided almost 3 weeks worth of seminars and teachings of the Vodou religion in Sydney and Melbourne.
Further, Hougan Catela has been filmed and featured on such networks as Discovery, Discovery Medical, The Learning Channel, Travel Channel and such shows as Sightings, Local Broadcast and featured in NY Times, Cond-Nast Traveler, National Inquirer, Time Picayune and many more mass media outlets.
In 2002, he was told by the Lwa he had to go into the djevo again and complete the process that started 8 yrs ago, but this time to receive the additional tools he had not received the first time. After he consulted the Lwa, numerous Mambos, and Hougans about this request, he then asked Houngan Yabofe and Mambo Marie Charles to take him back to Haiti and place him in the djevo.
Hougan Shane or Hougan Catela completed this process in Jan. 2003, was initiated and ordained as Hougan Asogwe and became a member of Sosyete la Belle Fleur de Ginea (of which a branch is currently located in New Orleans). Hougan Catela currently lives and works in New Orleans as a Systems Engineer for a large corporation and provides numerous Vodou services on behalf of Erzulie’s Authentic Voudou and New Orleans Mistic Botanica.
