Tuesday, October 28 - Los Muertos Spirit Seekers
Los Muertos Spirit Seekers was founded in 2010 by a small team of women interested in understanding and seeking answers in the world of paranormal phenomena. We strive to achieve this principle through the ideals of belief in the unknown, acceptance of a spiritual world, and the guidance from a higher power.
With a combined 20+ years of experience, both personal and professional, Cat Kaspar and Peggy Schofield focus their investigations on private homes and small businesses. Also complementing the team is Margo Richardson, an independent investigator and clairsentient.
Along with several homes, a private law office, the Belen Harvey House Railroad Museum, and Great Face and Body Day Spa, Los Muertos Spirit Seekers was the first paranormal investigation team to explore, record and document activity at Hotel Parq Central in Albuquerque (former psychiatric hospital).
