Research group hunts for answers
AFTER having his own paranormal experience when he was 16, Craig Powell, of St Clair, formed Western Sydney Paranormal Research to find answers.
Mr Powell said he saw the ghost of a woman while babysitting for his sister.
“I saw a woman in the house that night and it wasn’t like a Hollywood seethrough ghost – it was just like seeing a real person – but I couldn't find her anywhere,” he said.
“Since then, it has just been about what I saw, how I saw it and how do I prove that what I saw was real.”
The paranormal encounters continued for Mr Powell and wife Nicky Myers after a horrific car accident.
“We were involved in a really bad accident and Nicky nearly died and went through a near-death experience,” Mr Powell said.
“Then things started happening in our house to my parents. They are the biggest sceptics (but) they had to leave our house; they couldn’t stay there.
“We kept wondering who do we call for help and that’s when we decided we would form this organisation.”
Mr Powell said the aim of the group was about answering people’s questions.
“We can validate or debunk the experience people are having and give them normal rational explanations for what is going on – and 90 per cent cent of the time we can do that,” he said.
“We love doing it and the things that we have seen and heard and the places we have been to have been amazing.”
