‘Chill Seekers’ explore haunted foothills sitesWritten by Sean Janssen, The Union Democrat June 14, 2013 12:30 pm
A group of amateur paranormal investigators are documenting what they claim is evidence of otherworldly haunting at various historic locales in Tuolumne and Calaveras counties in a YouTube video series.
The “Chill Seekers” hail from Modesto and were formed by Carissa Simpson and fiance Keith Weldon, both 29. They have been joined by other young paranormal enthusiasts for encounters with “ghosts” at the Murphys Hotel, National Hotel in Jamestown and the old schoolhouse at Columbia State Historic Park.
They have filmed a half-dozen videos thus far, averaging about 12 minutes in length, appearing on their own chillseekers.com website as well as a YouTube channel.
They’ve been reaching out to Central Valley and Bay Area spots, but the first episode shot about nine months ago centered on Tuolumne County haunts while the latest, uploaded earlier this week, details the Murphys hunt.
