All Girl Ghost Hunters To Search For Spirits

When there’s something strange in your neighborhood, who do you call? How about Houston’s only all-female ghost-hunting group?! Shanna Karstedt is the leader of the group, called Second Sight Paranormal. She and her crew have briefcases full of equipment they say can help determine whether a place is haunted, or just hyped. Next on their agenda? The Spaghetti Warehouse in downtown Houston. Long reported to be one of the most haunted places in the Bayou City, Karsted and her fellow female ghost hunters are heading to the restaurant Saturday night, to finally determine for sure if there are other-worldly occupants. "I’m very excited to do this location … I’ve heard so much about it," Karsted said.
Karsted said while there are plenty of other ghost hunters out there, they’re not all legit. "There are so many TV shows about ghost-hunting, and they’re all dramatized. And they are always getting possessed, and they’re always finding activity," she said. She said she’s found ghosts and sprits before, but even with Spaghetti Warehouse’s well-known reputation as a haunt, she’s not sure what they will find there. However, local News reporter Vicente Arenas and photographer Gustavo Pereyra had a ghostly encounter of their own while shooting this story. Vicente said the lights in Spaghetti Warehouse flickered while they were inside, and then Gustavo’s light blew out. Maybe Second Sight Paranormal will be able to explain why…
