Written by: Darren Dedo
Case Filed: 04/5/19 - Scottsdale, Arizona
Executive Producer: Rick Garner




It looks like your typical public library. Rows and rows of books. Fiction, non-fiction, history, mystery. You name it, they've got it at the public library in Scottsdale, Arizona. But what's unique about the Mustang Branch - it's supposedly haunted.

Librarian Pam Beach shared of an encounter she heard about from another library staffer. "And it would've been like on a Sunday morning. early before we opened. We're usually pulling holds and he said it just sounded like footsteps in the other aisle. So, he went around to look down that aisle and he couldn't see anything."

Employees says lots of strange things happen between the stacks and the storage areas.

"We are in our work area and will often hear things going along in the library especially when it's a little quieter," says Librarian Louisa Aikin. "Several people have reported that there…

Unexplained Cases | Haunted Hotel and More in Wickenburg, AZ

Written by: Darren Dedo
Case Filed: 03/29/19 - Wickenburg, Arizona
Executive Producer: Rick Garner




Wickenburg, Arizona - where the old west meets the new west. A town that was founded on "there’s gold in them hills" has quite the past! That past has merged into a paranormal present: spiritual energy, phantom apparitions, things that go bump in the night. This old western town is supercharged for super natural activity! To get a good idea why this town is so paranormal--  we first need to take a trip to the past. “Back in 1863, gold was discovered just outside of town in a place that became known as the Vulture Mine," shared Madam Mariah of Wickenburg Legends and Ghost Tours. "And  and any time the word "gold" is shouted from the rooftop you soon have all the men, prospectors, and miners clamoring around to get their fare share as well. That’s exactly what happened here. At any one given time, there were 5,000 souls outside working that hard rock mine, many of…

Watch Unexplained: Haunts III

On the evening of Halloween 2003, the unintended trilogy of "Unexplained: Haunts" ended with the half-hour television special: "Unexplained: Haunts III." It was Jeff Rent's second time hosting and it was our biggest production. Our first "Haunts" highlighted paranormal activity in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. "Haunts II" focused on several stories in Selma, Alabama. With "Haunts III," we traveled to the middle of nowhere - Cheneyville, Louisiana - to a 640-acre plantation and spent the night. Creepy doesn't begin to describe it.


Watch Unexplained: Haunts II

On the evening of Halloween 2002, my privilege and honor of working with some very talented people was showcased in the half-hour television special: "Unexplained: Haunts II." Unlike our first program which featured investigations from various locations, we opted to investigate hauntings this time across a single city: Selma, Alabama.  Rich in history on the civil rights scale and a great resource for film making, we knew nothing about the hauntings Selma. It first came on my radar when I learned that the county chamber of commerce promoted a ghost tour. They were more than helpful to line up former and current owners of the properties and other information to help our investigation. We continued with apply our proven formula: capture and honor the history of a location and weaving that together with a documented paranormal investigation.


Watch Unexplained: Haunts

Halloween 2001 was the stage for what would become a trilogy of half-hour television specials. It was called "Unexplained: Haunts" and represented a year's worth of paranormal investigations. This programming was unique for its time and even more unique for a broadcast news television crew to create. This was before "Ghost Hunters" and other similar shows. We were influenced by MTV's "Fear" and "The X-Files," but we were also driven a formula: capture and honor the history of a location and weaving that together with a documented paranormal investigation.


Unexplained: 10 Years Later

10 years. Has it really been a decade since our first half-hour show aired on WJTV-12 in Jackson, Mississippi at 6:30pm?
Halloween 2001 seems like yesterday, and it yet seems so long ago. At the time, we were uncertain the special should even air. The terrorist attacks of September 11 were still very fresh in our minds. Stories and updates still poured in daily about the attacks. Nerves were raw and emotions were scattered. Was it really time to air stories about ghosts and death?
