Ghost Hunters

The non-profit S.C. Paranormal Activity Research Association (SCPARA) has been in operation in one form or another since 1989. In that time, their team of volunteers has investigated scores of paranormal incidents across the state, adding incident reports, photos and audio recordings of the unexplained to their growing database. When City Paper met with the lead investigators of SCPARA, who go by the call signs “Gryphon” and “Mystic,” honestly, we weren’t sure what to expect. But, after talking with them for over an hour, we found that they represent a group of hardworking, grounded and genuinely kind people who simply share a passion to explain the inexplicable and whose ultimate goal is to help people understand paranormal activity and how to deal with it.
