Tell me, do you believe ghosts and/or spirits roam the places they once inhabited -- particularly in places where unfortunate and/or frightening events took place?

For some people, discovering and maybe even exploring 'haunted' places is one of the most fascinating things a person can do.

Although I have some interest in these claims of the paranormal dwelling amongst the living, it has never held my fascination the way it has for some of us. That doesn't mean I don't understand why humans tend to find these kinds of things intriguing.

But I confess, I do find it intriguing when those who not only study these 'haunted' places, but actually investigate them with sophisticated equipment in tow, tell us they feel certain 'energies' in some places

After all, the idea of some kind of overlap between the worlds of the living and the 'dead,' has been a subject of great interest since the dawning of time.

What makes the study even MORE interesting is when we hear some of these 'haunted' places are right here close to home. In this case? Tyler, Texas
