The PASS is hosting some very special events on March 9th and 10th, with author and paranormal investigator Ben Radford. Radford is deputy editor of Skeptical Inquirer science magazine, and an investigator with the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry, a non-profit educational organization. He is one of the world’s few science-based paranormal investigators, and has spent a decade doing first-hand research into dozens of mysterious phenomena including psychics, ghosts and haunted houses; exorcisms, miracles, Bigfoot, stigmata, lake monsters, UFO sightings, reincarnation, near-death experience, dowsing, crop circles, and many other topics.
For the first event on Friday Radford will be sharing a discussion titled “Slaying the Vampire: Solving the Chupacabra Mystery,” which will be held at 7 p.m. at the Windmill Inn Suites at 3535 W Chandler Blvd, Chandler. Radford will discuss his quest to identify the mysterious vampire called the Chupacabra responsible for leaving animal carcasses drained of all blood. It took him five years and treks all over the southwest, but eventually he discovered the truth. He solved the mystery and slew the beast, figuratively, of course.
Then on Saturday the event is a workshop on scientific paranormal investigations from noon- 3 p.m. at the Gangplank, 260 South Arizona Avenue, Chandler. In this in-depth, classroom-style workshop Radford will explain how to actually solve mysteries like hauntings, monsters, and UFOs. Topics include interviewing witnesses, researching claims, collecting evidence, and conducting field experiments.
