Chicago Ghost Investigations
In the middle of a tour, a young woman began arguing with her mother, causing the guide to quietly usher the rest of the group away from the quarrelling family members. Even if they had stayed, the other tour participants would have only heard half the dispute. That's because the mother was dead. At Chicago Ghost Investigations, instances like these in which guests are confronted by spirits of their past are jokingly referred to as Bring Your Own Ghost moments. Owner Brian Maloy is all too familiar with these types of encounters, experiencing one himself while serving with the United States Army's 101st Airborne. While shivering in a foxhole, Brian suddenly found himself looking down at his body from above. Beside him stood his deceased grandfather, donning a tuxedo and red bowtie.
Brian has been fascinated with ghosts ever since, sharing his passion during each paranormal encounter at Chicago Ghost Investigations. During an introductory session, he supplies guests with a bag of ghost hunting equipment, including divination rods, thermal indicators. Along with these tools, Brian and his fellow guides teach participants methods for communicating with the dead. From there, newly christened ghost hunters seek out spirits inside a warehouse once used by Al Capone, which NBC New York now calls the "spookiest place in Chicago."
