Fresh back from Las Vegas - where he was featured on an upcoming episode of Zak Bagan’s Travel Channel series “Aftershocks” - paranormal investigator Richard Ruland will be one of two featured guests at Dalton Ghost Tours on Saturday.

Mr. Ruland is the host of Hunting the Unknown Truth, a show that boasts an average of 800,000 views each week. He has also appeared on shows such as the Biography Channel’s “My Ghost Story,” and is a co-founder of G.H.O.S.T. (Ghost Hunters of Southern Tennessee). Among the subjects Mr. Ruland will touch on are his team’s recent supernatural findings at the Thomas A. Berry House, home of the Carter Hope Center. 

“We have a few chilling EVPs from the investigation at the Thomas Berry House that we’re excited to share,” Mr. Ruland said. Originally a cop from New York, Mr. Ruland now resides in Dayton. “As a number of residents already know, there’s a lot going on in that historic home.” 

The Thomas A. Berry House investigation is the subject of an upcoming episode of Hunting the Unknown Truth, though the air date has not yet been announced. Previous episodes of Hunting the Unknown Truth can be viewed on PEN (Paranormal Encounters Network), Columbia University’s campus channel; as well as on Roku’s PARATREK TV, Google TV, World TV, and You Tube.

Along with Mr. Ruland will be Mark Fults, the G.H.O.S.T. team psychic and the author of Chattanooga Chills. Both Mr. Ruland and Mr. Fults will join Dalton Ghost Tours guests on a walking exploration of downtown Dalton’s alleged “cold spots” following their presentation.

Activities begin and end on the wooden deck, across from the Wink Theatre on W. Crawford Street. Admission price is $10. Reservations are not required. Start time is 8 p.m. For more information call 706.673-2167.
