ABOUT THE TENNESSEE WRAITH CHASERS
The Tennessee Wraith Chasers (TWC) are a serious team of paranormal investigators who don't take themselves too seriously. Each investigation is packed full of Southern charm and wit, but when it comes down to business, they don't mess around. TWC's motto is respect, detect, collect, meaning they rely on a unique combination of scientific method and spiritual faith to navigate investigations. Growing up in a historic, and some say haunted, area of Tennessee has given them an authentic desire to make sense of the mysterious things they've experienced through paranormal research. They take great pride in establishing trusted relationships with witnesses and call on the strengths of each team member to leave no stone unturned. The Wraith Chasers made their television debut as the stars of Destination America's fan-favorite series "Ghost Asylum," in which they investigated America's most frightening asylums, sanitariums, penitentiaries and haunted hotspots.
