My own personal Unsolved Mysteries mystery is now solved! All thanks to research from Juan Barona, producer of the MRP Show podcast.
A while back I wrote an article about the new Netflix reboot of Unsolved Mysteries. In that post, I referenced one particular episode of the original series that absolutely terrified me as a kid. Click here to read the post for context.
But the thing is, I couldn’t recall which episode it had been. It led me to believe that perhaps the episode never existed in the first place and was just the result of faulty memory. I remembered it involving ghostly voices heard by some kid on a radio. I also recalled it being just a small part of a much larger episode, perhaps involving ghost ships or something to that extent. That was probably why I wasn’t able to track it down because in the wiki descriptions there isn’t anything about the exact details of the episodes, apart from their brief subjects.
Based on my obscure details, Juan was able to prove that I hadn’t been confabulating for the most part after all. The episode did exist—episode three in the first season of Unsolved Mysteries, which originally aired on October 26, 1988…just in time for Halloween. Watch the episode here.
If you aren’t familiar with the story of Mike Blower’s home run prediction, then you’re in for a treat.
Now when you hear the term precognition used in the paranormal, you probably imagine someone with the magnificent ability to make predictions of future events. Or, at least to some extent. But precognitive abilities don’t always have to manifest in spectacular ways. They can also show up in more subtle manners.
To my knowledge, Savalas first publicly shared his experiences on a 1993 Australian TV show called The Extraordinary. After telling his story he died just a few months later in January of 1994. But the implications of this tale go beyond just him. Here is that segment…
When I first began the Normal Paranormal website several years ago, I put the call out to see if anyone wanted to contribute articles to it. The response was almost nonexistent. Yet, there was one person out there who had taken an interest.
His name was “Lawrence Miller” and he had lived in a haunted house.
Lawrence told me how it practically destroyed his life and left a negative impact on his family. Although tragic, his account was at the same time important, because it put in perspective the reality of this that ghost hunters often forget.
The paranormal isn’t fun for everyone.
I received an email from Sue Swiatek, the state director of MUFON Virginia, about an upcoming conference in the Maryland area she organizes annually called “Fortfest.” I didn’t get a chance to attend last year’s but from what I heard it had a fantastic lineup. This year Fortfest also has some impressive speakers—some of which I’ve heard of, but have never seen lecture before.
The late Martin Caidin was an author of numerous books including “Ghosts in the Air” which chronicles various paranormal occurrences in air space and within the airplanes themselves. On October 22, 1995 Caidin gave an interview on Dreamland with Art Bell, a well-known radio program that some of you may be familiar with. (Today, it is hosted by Whitley Strieber.)
In that particular conversation, Caidin detailed such a supernatural event that may have saved his life, along with the lives of two other pilots.
