Interview with Lee Roberts

Today I’m welcoming Lee Roberts, executive producer and presenter of #haun7edLIVE. Thank you, Lee for stopping by!

 

 

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

My name is Lee Roberts, I’ve been a Paranormal investigator for over 20 years now. I’ve ran private teams investigating private homes and local properties. Worked on a few TV shows including Mindscape, Ghost Attacks in the USA and worked with the Most Haunted team. I now run Haunted Events UK, write for Haunted Magazine and present #haun7edLIVE via my Facebook page.

I used to be a police officer but left that role under a black cloud leading me to spend time in jail. That was the lowest part of my life but made me who I am today, I never regret anything in life.

 

 

You’re the owner of the paranormal events company, Haunted Events UK. Share with everyone what your company’s about.

I love meeting new people and sharing my experiences with others. I was asked around 8 years ago to run events exclusively for a location called Wollaton Hall, which was used to film Batman – Dark Knight Rises in 2011, the events were so popular Newstead abbey, Nottingham Castle and Sherwood Forest all asked me to do the same on an exclusive basis.. Haunted Events UK was born. I now also manage the bookings at a location called The Village in Mansfield, AMAZING location full of activity.

 

 

Why the paranormal? Was it a personal experience that started it all for you?

I was 6 years old, I was on a school trip at Newstead Abbey, a location I now work with. They were telling us the Ghost story of the white lady when my best friend collapsed. He said he felt like someone was pulling him into the ground. From that point I was hooked on the paranormal and began looking into all kinds of Ghost stories. It also coincided with the release of the original Ghostbusters film which was another reason.

 

 

What’s your most frightening encounter with the ghostly realm?

I was the main investigator at The Clifton Hall Hauntings back in 2008. The place was like the twilight zone, crazy activity, a room full of bees! Team mates collapsing and crying uncontrollably, dark figures showing themselves and more.

 

 

You’re also the executive producer and presenter of #haun7edLIVE. Tell us about that.

#haun7edLIVE came from a TV idea we had, the LIVE was supposed to be a spin off on Facebook but became bigger than we imagined. It’s basically 7 friends, all different backgrounds, abilities and experiences, what we all have in common is the love for the paranormal and enjoy having a laughs with it.

The team consists of Paul Stevenson editor of Haunted Magazine, Jason Wall, Pete Cox, Simon Powell, James Pykett & Andy Soar who is the designer for Haunted Magazine.
We do LIVE Facebook broadcasts via my page www.facebook.com/officialleeroberts
We average around 1.5 million viewers at the moment and growing.

 

 

Being a paranormal investigator, do you follow a certain routine while investigating and how do you protect yourself from anything negative?

I like to go in blind, not know too much and start with a sweep of the full property. I never put any protection up. I’m very scientific minded and don’t believe in protection. If there are Spirits around us then they are there all the time, just because we are Ghost Hunting doesn’t make them any better or worse to require protection.

 

 

Do you feel that all spirits are bad?

Not at all, spirits were once living people, so you treat them as that. Some are good, some bad, some just grumpy old sods. Demonic entities are a different thing altogether. They were never living and are all bad. I still wouldn’t protect myself from them, but treat differently in my approach.

 

 

Do you have any upcoming projects that you’d like to share with everyone?

We have a Spirits of Winter special coming up, more on that will be announced soon.
Also 2017 events are now on sale and selling very fast.

 

 

Where can fans find updates about your shows and events?

For the LIVE shows go to www.facebook.com/officailleeroberts for all updates and to watch live.
For the events go to www.hauntedeventsuk.com

 

 

Any words of wisdom?

Never live your life for others, don’t worry what others think. Believe in yourself and tell yourself you will be successful, believe that with all your heart and it will happen, you have to believe it for others, too.
Paranormal wise, have fun, don’t take it too seriously and enjoy.
Most of all don’t be normal – BE PARANORMAL

Interview with Jax Menez Atwell

Today I’m welcoming adventurer and private investigator, Jax Menez Atwell from the History Channel’s Missing In Alaska. Thank you, Jax for stopping by!

 

 

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

Always a difficult question for me. What we are as a person isn’t what we do or titled as. The scars, trials, lessons learned, passions, memories, etc. are what make any of us. What I am and always have been is an inquisitive and adventurous person. That led me into law enforcement at an early age and led me out of it about 9 years ago into private investigations. I love not having the red tape of government to conduct the investigations that I want. To live and love an occupation that you are passionate about and that makes you happy is truly a blessing.

 

 

You have years of experience working in law enforcement. What’s the transition been like in becoming an important member of the History Channel’s television series, Missing in Alaska?

Being part of “Missing in Alaska” as an investigator is just the next investigation. All investigations are basically the same the details are just different, but the approach always has to be the same. Now as a man, the opportunity to be part of such an amazing opportunity has been life altering! Alaska is truly one of the most beautiful and misunderstood parts of the world. The show has allowed me the opportunity to see and do things in Alaska that would take a lifetime to compile.

 

 

Can you share with everyone what Missing in Alaska is all about? And when does it air on t.v.?

History’s “Missing in Alaska” is a series of investigations into why people go missing. The twist on the show is a look into Alaskan native folkore, paranormal, and cryptid or unknown creatures. Alaska has a plethora of ways you can go missing but the show’s objective is to look into some other possible ways people may disappear.

The show has been on both History and H2 (History 2). There are 13 episodes which have all been played but they tend to do marathons and run a series of episodes all on one day. Additionally, the show can be streamed on things like hulu, roku, apple, etc.

 

 

Would you say that the cases you currently investigate are anything like what you’ve dealt with in the past?

They are different in the fact that the objective of the show and mainly my fellow investigator, crypto-zoologist Ken Gerhard, is to prove the existence of something previously just held in lore and legend. With those factors involved it’s very important as the pragmatic part of the team to keep us on task, keep the evidence pointing in the right direction, and not jumping at the emotion or elation that comes with discovering the unknown or previously undocumented goals of the investigation.

 

 

Are you a true believer of the unknown or do you view things skeptically?

I am extremely skeptical. I’m surprised I have been accepted in the crypto world with such open arms. I want to see the evidence. I want to put the pieces together and prove or disprove. Do I believe some of the investigations are a possibility? Sure! There is always the chance that what we are investigating has a plausible explanation. Plausible isn’t enough for me to say that something really exists though. It is fun and exciting though investigating these things!

 

 

What has been the most “eye-opening” case for you thus far on Missing in Alaska?

Well it definitely wasn’t the most exciting and the science behind it was hard to keep your mind in the game, but the investigation into HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program). This investigation looked into the possibility of the government and other governments tinkering with things like weather and mind control. This has been going on for decades by the world’s super power nations and is very scary to think about what they might have and probably are continuing to do.

 

 

What’s your favorite part about being an investigator and why?

Being an investigator is who I am. Investigating for me its more of a way of life. I love what I do and I can’t imagine doing anything else! Finding the truth to anything is so extremely rewarding. The journey to the truth is such an amazing process that I revel in! Additionally, being an investigator means that your daily routine is constantly different which keeps life fresh.

 

 

What’s next for Jax Menez Atwell?

I’m back working on my case work. I get case work based on word of mouth and the reputation I’ve built. I’m a jack of all trades and pretty much handle anything that comes my way. I’m primarily based out of Arizona but I travel all the south and northwest states for case work. The what’s next part is the exciting part! That is what is in God’s hands! I’m looking at opening another office in the Boise, Idaho area soon so that should be exciting!

 

 

Any positive words of advice you’d like to share?

Life is what you make it. I love adventure. I love seeing and doing with my own senses. Being an adventurer doesn’t take a big budget or tons of resources. I guarantee there are mysteries and adventure close to where anyone lives. Being an adventurer is just opening your eyes and getting curious!!!
