This is a supplement to their previous book "The Double-Blind Ghost Box".
Shawn Taylor, cofounder of Supernatural Media and its paranormal investigations team (SAI), was born in Hampton Roads, Virginia, and has a long history with the supernatural. As a youth he had several run-ins with ghosts, demons, and angels—not to mention all the many unexplained phenomena that birthed his interest in the field of paranormal investigations. He began studies across a wide variety of spiritual belief systems. His pursuit for knowledge stretched him to examine diverse doctrines as well as those considered commonplace. These included, but were not limited to, Buddhism, Wicca, Necromancy, the book of Kabbalah, and the Bible. Finally, in 1992, Shawn had a near-death experience, which changed his life forever. It opened his eyes to the reality of the afterlife and the relative nature of time, space, and matter in existence. This single event sealed the deal on his soul for Christ as his personal savior. Today he hunts after the supernatural to bring to light the truth that seems to have eluded science until now. With the SAI team Shawn brings to the table a firsthand account of the afterlife. However, in this life, he brings a technical background in computer hardware, software, programming, digital media, Six Sigma problem solving, statistical analysis, psychology, counseling, and, finally, an insight for innovation. Don’t be fooled: it takes a lot to spook this guy. He won’t easily believe something is “paranormal” without first exhausting himself for a logical explanation. It is this insatiable need for answers that presses him to continue his explorations to this day.
Dan Morgan, Supernatural Media and its paranormal investigations team (SAI), was born in Galax, Virginia, and began his experiences with the supernatural at an early age. Dan’s interest in the paranormal stems from those experiences and an intense curiosity as to the science of all things supernatural. Dan sought for years for an answer to the origin of the supernatural; in 1992 he accepted Christ and began to focus his search through his experience as a Christian. For years Dan has studied science, concentrating his studies on quantum physics. After seeing similarities between quantum phenomena and the supernatural, he realized that there may be ways to study one through the other. He wishes not only to better understand the phenomena, but also to further research the field. Dan has degrees in behavioral science and electrical engineering, which he hopes to utilize to build better equipment for detection of the paranormal.
Together, Shawn and Dan, with a team of investigators, strive to uncover the mysteries of the supernatural using scientific methodology. With training in process design and electrical engineering, together they developed the Double and Triple Blind Ghost Box methods under the Supernatural Media LLC.
The Double-Blind Ghost Box reviews the process of Taylor and Morgans studies of the device, along with how they determined its usefulness in researching the paranormal. They explore the history of the ghost box and the issues arising in todays ghost box methods, and they offer methods for conducting an objective ghost box investigation, processing ghost box evidence, analyzing the findings, and presenting the results to clients. Taylor and Morgan also discuss the different spirits an investigation might uncover and future ghost box applications and technologies.
Sharing actual transcripts of investigations, The Double-Blind Ghost Box works toward communicating the existence of the paranormal through objective research.

Only a little known organization came to their aid. Author Tom Valentine, brought in a nationally known psychic, Joseph DeLouise, who then asked assistance of an exorcist from England, Reverend William Derl-Davis. Together, they gave their best effort at exorcising the multiple spirits inhabiting the building and disrupting the lives of the living. Events were filmed by NBC, who sent their most prominent Chicago journalist, Carole Simpson, to cover the event.
