Hans Holzer dies
Thursday April 30, 2009
One of the real giants and pioneers in the field of ghost investigation and paranormal research, Hans Holzer, died this past Sunday at the age of 89. Often called "the original Ghost Hunter," Holzer investigated thousands of ghost and haunting cases, and wrote more than 145 books on the supernatural. As a parapsychologist, Holzer's influence on today's researchers is far-reaching; many of the theories we have today about ghost phenomena are due to or heavily influenced by his work.
Holzer's impact on this field cannot be overstated.
Dr. Hans Holzer, PhD, authored over 145 titles including Murder At Amityville, which was the basis for the 1982 film Amityville II: The Possession.
Having earned his PhD from the London College of Applied Science, he spent over five decades traveling the world to obtain first hand accounts of paranormal experiences, interviewing expert researchers, and developing parapsychological protocols and terminology such as 'sensitive' and 'beings of light'.
Dr. Holzer was a renowned parapsychologist best known for his extensive involvement in researching the supernatural which included investigating "The Amityville Horror" and some of the most prominent haunted locations around the world.
Dr. Hans Holzer, PhD, was a former newspaper reporter and foreign correspondent who was trained to be skeptical and in that disciplined, ever-questioning mindset became one of the most noted and revered paranormal researchers the world has ever known.
Nevertheless, he had been involved in psychic phenomena since the late 1930s when his research into psychic phenomena truly began. Holzer believed that such things as ghost, poltergeists, precognition and other psychic occurrences did exist and always had.
