Terry & Sue Osborne and Melvin Yeamans are paranormal investigators! They came to help us out with the inexplicable occurrences that had been happening in our home since we had moved in 16 years ago! Our 95-year-old home had unexplainable footsteps, disembodied voices, music, orbs of light and sometimes things would move without anyone touching them. It was amazing to have these experts come to investigate! Once and for all, we now know who is living with us that we cannot see, although we have proof they are there.
