Interview with Dave Spinks & Kristin Lee

Today I’m welcoming Dave Spinks and Kristin Lee who are here to tell us about their exciting upcoming convention, Society of Supernatural! Thank you, Dave and Kristin for stopping by!

 

 

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

Dave:  I’m a military veteran of 9 years and retired federal law enforcement officer. I’ve been investigating and researching all aspects of the paranormal for over 30 years. I have recently delved into writing. I have a lot of experiences and knowledge over these many years of investigating strange phenomena and I feel it’s time to put it to paper.

Kristin:  My name is Kristin Lee. I’m the founder and owner of the Bellaire House Paranormal Research Center, coined Bellaire House Tours, LLC. I work in the metaphysical field and also work with a large supernatural community whom collect paranormal data at the Bellaire House.

 

 

Why the paranormal?

Dave:  Well the paranormal really changed my life due to several experiences I had as a young man, starting with a Bigfoot sighting I had in 1983 with my grandfather.

Kristin:  I fell on hard times when my home was destroyed by two flash floods, leaving me homeless with two kids. I found the Bellaire House on a foreclosed list, I put in a bid to purchase the home, the bank accepted it and we moved in shortly after. It wasn’t long before I started noticing paranormal activity; but I blamed psychology from the flood, being over worked and the stress of rebuilding a life for my family until there was no more psychological explanations. I’m interested in afterlife communication, and collecting paranormal data to prove or disprove there is something more than what a conservative middle class society taught me. There are things that I’m unable to explain, unexplainable things not only I, but many who gather with me, can’t explain either. There are so many profound things that add up if you pay attention – it’s like I’m being spiritually led. I think the most important thing I’ve learned from this metaphysical/paranormal research is that there are no coincidences.

 

 

You’re a paranormal investigator. What kind of locations do you investigate and what’s been the scariest one so far?

Dave:  Yes, well I investigate residential locations as well as commercial locations. However, I investigate hauntings, cryptids and ufo sightings anything in the supernatural realm is game for me because I feel a lot of it, maybe interconnected. I really don’t have a scariest location, each one is different and many have been unnerving in their own way.

 

 

 

You’re an author, metaphysician and owner of the Bellaire House, a location known for its paranormal activity. Tell us a little about its haunted history. 

Kristin: The land is part of the French and Indian war, there are Shawnee caves on the property for the mid 1700’s; we have heard others locals say their elders told them that the Shawnee held ceremonies behind the Bellaire House. Bellaire is known for “the house that jack built.” Which was built and owned by a hard working coal mine tycoon named Jacob Heatheringon, we have proven the Bellaire House to part of Jacob Heatheringtons land, as well as the Bellaire House was part of Jacobs family – his son Alex and granddaughter Lyde took over the coal company when Jacob died. We have recently learned Alex was committed to a lunatic asylum when the business failed, leaving Lyde,  who died in the house from heart problems owner of the land. Her brother Edwin lived inside the Bellaire House with Lyde, but when Lyde died, Edwin became struck with grief and called upon spiritualist’s to come to the Bellaire House so he could communicate with Lyde. We also learned that Edwin lost a twin sister at a tender young age of his human development, which may have triggered him to  question the afterlife when he was a child. We have heard rumors that the water was poisoned by a local man because his wife wanted to live in the Bellaire House but the family would not sell it. Jim Chase who is a former code enforcer, found maps that show catacombs, leaving a passage for freedom for the Underground Railroad to the Ohio River. There is documentation of a coal mine fire in portal 1, which Jacob Heatherington spent $8k to extinguish in the 1800’s. We have identified Jacob as being a leader of the Good Fellows, and holding private meeting in the lower chamber of his home. In front of the House is the Ohio River which coincides with leyline that create portals or doorways to the paranormal. We have recently discovered very strong correlations to the Heatheringtons physical & psychological well being. Historically the house has had many owners as well as those who lived there as renters. The Bellaire House houses positive energy aside from some of the TV rating dramatic’s, but then the other side of the Bellaire House is not positive & it can be dangerous, some people call this demonic- so the Bellaire House crew works hard to keep the energy neutralized to try to be proactive against negative energy. We have had many teams come to investigate the Bellaire House for definitive paranormal activity, and most have gathered some very profound & unexplainable video data, concluding paranormal activity does exist. It has taken us thirteen years to gather data to be able to say that paranormal activity exists. Our next research is trying to learn how the activity manifests.

 

 

 

Together you both are working on an exciting upcoming event, Society of Supernatural.

Dave, can you tell everyone when the event will take place and how people can get tickets? And also, what’s the itinerary for the day of the event?

Dave:  Yes, the first Society of the Supernatural Convention will be taking place on June 16th from 11 am to 6pm, at the wheeling island casino and resort in wheeling WV. There will be guest speakers , To include John Zaffis , Rosemary Ellen Guiley , our own David Weatherly, Myself , Kristin Lee, Ross Allison, Sean Austin. Also appearing Stan Gordon, Eric Altman. There will be many meta physical people, psychics doing readings haunted location owners and people who run the locations to include Willows Weep, Bellaire House Octagon Hall, Kusciosko County Jail, Guyer Opera house and more. Several paranormal radio shows, paranormal groups of all kinds. Also, after the event is over Sean Austin Will be performing live music at the venue . You can get tickets to the event by going to the Bellaire house facebook page , go into the events page and find the conference page. You can also buy tickets at the door.

Kristin, the day before the event there will be a “Meet & Greet”. Can you tell everyone about that? And where will the “Meet & Greet” take place?

Kristin:  Dave called me one afternoon and asked me to help him coordinate a supernatural gathering in Wheeling, WV. We say supernatural because we wanted to not limit ourselves just to paranormal. We believe that all unexplained should be considered “supernatural” because we work with so many people in the field who are not just paranormal investigators. We also wanted to open the conference up various people who work as metaphysicians, psychic’s, cryptozoology, ufology, hauntings, paranormal, demonology, authors, location owners, teams of researchers, and healers. We also wanted to gather together with like minded people to share our work & start building a strong network of rapport with our peers. In the past I coordinated psychic fairs at the Wheeling Island Casino, Wheeling, WV, so I suggested to Dave we start the conference there. David Weatherly & Spinks asked me to join the Society of the Supernatural, (SOS) because of my work and experiences from the Bellaire House & we have other members of the SOS spread across the world.
Friday night is a private meet & greet at the Bellaire House with the speakers of the convention, plus we will also be holding a small & intimate Investigation at the Bellaire House with the speakers of the conventions. We opened up a six VIP tickets for guests to join us. Info for VIP tickets is in the website. thebellairehouse.webs.com. Meet & greet is 6pm-8pm and then the Investigation is 8pm-12am – we have an early morning and a very long day on Saturday.

 

 

 

This is the first one of many to come. What’s the inspiration behind creating the event, Society of Supernatural?

Dave:  The inspiration for the event is to bring together like minded people in the field to network with one another, share stories and experiences swap information . It is also focusing on people who live this life for real, people who have a genuine passion for the research and in the search for answers to some of man’s greatest questions.
David Weatherly and myself created Society of the Supernatural 4 years ago with some of these ideals in mind and its starting to take shape and grow on its own.

 

 

 

Where can paranormal enthusiasts find all the exciting updates for Society of Supernatural?

Kristin:  https://www.facebook.com/events/151392812209947??ti=ia

Or thebellairehouse.webs.com

 

 

 

Anything else you’d like to include about the fun-filled event?

Dave:  If you love the Supernatural realm you won’t want to miss this one! We’d love to meet each and every one of you and hear your stories and experiences. See you there!

Kristin:  We have 15 vending tables available at $50 per table. We provide an 8 foot table and chairs. There is an application that needs to be submitted for vendors simply to keep the type of vendors even- we want to keep things fair as possible & not have a overflow of specific vendors. We have capes 2-3 vendors per category to keep the event balanced. VIP meet & Greet tickets are going fast. Lodging for the event is at the Wheeling Island Casino Hotel. Saturday after the convention we will remain in the show room for a public after hours party where Sean Austin will be playing music.

Kristin: It is said by many locals of Bellaire that Jacob had this monument of Eliza placed at Greenwood cemetery with her back turned against Bellaire because of how the locals disrespected her. Jacob built the mansion for Eliza so she would feel acceptance by the village of Bellaire, but when he held parties the locals still shunned her. Eliza was a faithful Christian Women who taught Jacob to read by using the Bible. However, she followed in her mother’s footsteps and worked as a bar maid and cook. Back then, people frowned on women working in a pub. Non true rumors state Eliza is holding a spell book, but she is holding the Bible as she stood firm of the gospel of Christ.

Kristin: In March of 2017 after we aired on TV, we received so much attention someone decided to buy the bankruptcy note to the Bellaire House and hung $50k over our heads to keep it. After months of fighting with the persons who bought the bankruptcy note, we were able to get them to lower the debt to $35k and that was when we brought in Jon Campbell as our business partner. We raised money for the cause of saving the Bellaire House, and the debt pushed back the restoration of the Bellaire House, but we saved it thanks to Jon Campbell.

As far as we knew I had filed the bankruptcy, walked away to start a new life. Jim Chase, the code enforcer at the time called me and told me I was responsible for the property, the upkeep and I owned it and my name was on the deed still. Once we aired, a mortgage company contacted me demanding payment for the bank note and when they called that was when we found out the bank never foreclosed the properly. Years had gone by and I had been keeping up on the property, taxes and everything that goes along with it until I received the call demanding payment- that’s where John Campbell asked to become a partner to help save the house.

Kristin: Many local people have called Kristin a fraud and liar about the Bellaire House, some locals don’t believe in the paranormal and have gone beyond disrespecting Kristin Lee as they once did to Eliza Heatherington. It’s a shame that if anyone dares to be different in Bellaire the uneducated pitchforks point to the sky by the hands of some very cruel people. This is proof that the Bellaire House is a historical location, and Jacob A Heatherington was a resident. The family is large so historical data is a on going process by Rebecca Star Garden.

Kristin: The fire 1893. Coal mine portal #1 is currently visible, which proves the fire under the Bellaire House, and the coal mine portal runs from Pinch Run to St.Johns Catholic school.

Kristin: Alex Heatheringtons commitment records found by Rebecca Star Gardner.

Kristin:  We have extended the convention hours due to the great amount of interest & para community support. The convention will be 11am-9:30pm. Vendors need to be present to set up at 8am and be ready for the doors to open at 11am. The scheduled speakers will be present at the Bellaire House Friday, June 15 for the VIP private meet & greet/Investigation and are scheduled to speak at the convention during the following times:

Interview with Kristin Lee

Today I’m welcoming intuitive spiritual medium, reiki master and author, Kristin Lee. Thank you, Kristin for stopping by!

 

 

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

Here is my website
http://highpriestesskristinlee.webs.com/

A personal side of me, I like a quiet life. I work full-time as a contractor for California Psychic’s. I’m a Reverend High Priestess of the old Stregerian religion (Italian witchcraft). I’m a mom and a wife. I enjoy writing, photography, cooking, and sowing. I have a cat named Salem. I graduated from Argosy University with a master degree of Forensic Psychology & my undergrad was Behavioral Psychology and Organized Business Management.

 

 

At what age did you discover your gifts and how have they impacted your life?

When I was a child I always played with pretend friends. I had no idea they were spirits, or angels. When I was older, I realized that there was life after death and I had been “different” & “aware” of spirit all along. I grew up with my father’s side of the family Roman Catholic and my ma’s side was very spiritual. My Ma, Gram, & Great Gram had the “site”.

You’ve appeared on the television channels: The Syfy Channel, Lifetime, A&E and The Bio Channel. What’s that been like for you?

I first appeared on A&E My Ghost Story because my house was haunted and my family was terrorized but what dwelled inside of The Bellaire House. We lost our home to 2 flash floods and were homeless. FEMA came to the flood zone, assessed what was left of our home, and a few weeks later gave us $25k to rebuild our lives. I was at work and found 1699 Belmont Street on line. I called the realtor, that same day I met the realtor to look at it and signed a promissory note on the fire place. The next day the realtor called and accepted the bid. Two weeks later we moved in.

I didn’t notice anything paranormal about the Bellaire House because I was so mind strong on getting a stabilized home for my kids and our five-year-old black & white pit bull Bella. I just wanted a home. If there was anything paranormal about the home I didn’t feel it or allow myself to tune into it. I was on a mission to reach stability and rebuild our lives.

Shortly after we moved in I was a asleep on the couch and I felt the cushion go down- like someone was sitting down at my side. I opened my eyes and saw a gray figure of a man, he was transparent, he was thin, facial hair, and he wore a hat. I sat up and screamed, “Who are you?” He stood up, walked into the foyer and vanished. That was the first profound experience I had inside the Bellaire House.

 

 

You’re the author of 1699 Belmont Street, A Portal to Hell. Can you give everyone a description of what your book is about?

Yes, I’m the author of this book. The book is about living inside a extreme haunted house. It is a very personal, heart wrenching story about how my family was separated because of the hauntings inside the Bellaire House. It also tells the story how Mike & Amanda McCalsister with Ohio Valley Paranormal Research Society collected data to help me identify what we were dealing with. I wrote the book for the next homeowners of 1699 Belmont Street. After I was held down to the bed, pushed down the steps, and Bella was thrown against the wall. I left the home and filed bankruptcy on the Bellaire House. When the legal matters were over, I felt free of the Bellaire House for about a week. The Bellaire Code Enforcer called me and told me I needed to come back from Boston to Bellaire to take care of the Bellaire House. Jim Chase, the Bellaire Code Enforcer said I still owned the house, the Belmont County Auditor didn’t want it, the Bank didn’t want it and squashed the debt due to it being haunted and gave me the house back. I had to leave the life I started in Salem, MA and come back to Belmont County. I have been stuck here all this time dealing with the Bellaire House. Getting back to the book- I wrote it to give the next family a heads up. I never imagined I would still carry the attachments to the house or the book would go viral. I seriously wanted a “normal” life without paranormal or hauntings. I wanted to raise my kids, bake cupcakes and be a wife & mother.

 

 

Where can readers purchase their very own copy of 1699 Bellmont Street, A Portal to Hell?

http://thebellairehouse.webs.com/

There is a link there.

Also if you google “1699 Belmont Street, A Portal to Hell” by Kristin Lee on Amazon, Barnes & Nobel you can find it.

 

 

What’s the history of The Bellaire House and why is it so haunted?

We don’t have proof of the reason why it is haunted, but the history is this….

The house sits on a Leyline – that means there is a constant source of paranormal energy that goes in and out of the house. Researchers also discovered the Bellaire House sits on top of a coal mine portal where 42 men were killed in a explosion. Behind the house is a Native American burial and their caves- they practiced magick. In front of the house is the Ohio River.

As a team of researcher’s Chrissy Carter, Amanda McClasster and Mike McClasster found Jacob Heatherington, owner of the coal mine. When he died, he left it to Eliza (his daughter) she died in the dinning room. Her death record is in the book. Her brother was grieving her loss and moved into the house to be close to her. He hired mediums all over the USA to connect her to him. He became so fascinated with the afterlife he began studying seers and the art of mediumship. We believe he opened portals. Joe Estates closed the 11 portals 2.5 years ago. That night was super intense! I never want to live that again. But portals do not stay closed for long. Anyone can provoke spirits to manifest even after portals are closed or catholic rites are administered.

The last renter found a room where he confirmed that the Bellaire House was an Underground Railroad for the slaves.

There are rumors of it being a funeral home but that has never been confirmed. The French and Indian war was on this land too- Moundsville, WV is 8 miles from this location.

There is more….but you can learn about the rest of the story at the website:

The Event Oct 9th with Bishop Long
https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=RQBNiZ6tQDE

Past EVP’s
https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=RQBNiZ6tQDE

I’m not sure what is going on in relation to the activity because I haven’t been in there in two years. However, Oct 2, 2015 Moonlite Paranormal Society was the first team inside the home in 3-4 years. They were supposed to stay until 7am but they texted me a little before mid night and said they were wrapping up. Chris Appis, the founder said the house was at its worse.

Actual text message from Chris:

“Hate to say it but we are done. We got 66.6 on the Mel meter and the wardrobe in the attic was almost pushed over on to Jason. And it suddenly got very heavy. Everyone is done except Sarah but I am not leaving her alone.”

The next day Chris reported this:
“I just wanted to let you know how we all are. Dawn says she is ok but had been really emotional. I get real nervous and scared when we talk about and I will get real shaky and my top lip will twitch. Trying to work thru it. I did talk to Jason and he said he is fine but he is in terrible pain on his left side and don’t know why. I have known him for 2 years and have never complained of any kind of pain. Rhonye said she is just void of energy no matter how many naps she has taken today. And I am not sure about Sarah. I have not heard from her since around noon and she was just getting ready to use her kosher salt and wanted to know what to do because she had never used it before. We told her she needed to do it when she got home but she didn’t until 10 hrs later. I don’t know if that matters or not.”

A few hours later Chris texted me this:
“Ok just heard from Rhonye and she was having some issues half way thru the night with her shoulders- said they were burning and felt like someone was squeezing her extremely hard. She ended up going to Med Express today because it still bothered her and they told her that she has a sprain in her neck and shoulders. I really, really hope Bishop Long can help. And everyone stays safe. It is gonna be very trying.”

What has been some of the most compelling evidence captured at the house?

The Ghost Box session when the spirit said “Hi Kristin.”

http://youtu.be/kE-5IwsBoNo

The second part of that night was the disconnected lights in the attic turning on.

Ashely Anthony was bit by something inside the Bellaire House.

 

 

Anything malevolent ever happen to you while living there?

Pushed down the steps, held down to the bed, investigators have been bitten, had neck and shoulders sprained. My dog was thrown against the wall.

 

 

The Bellaire House is open for professional teams and private tours during the month of October. How can people contact you to schedule an event?

Actually, the Bellaire House is open all year round to teams of at least two years and para researchers. No one wants to buy the house being what it is and I can’t rent it out being what it is. Our para community needs the place to research more and learn about what we are dealing with. So, it is open all the time.

Any words of wisdom you’d care to share?

The Bellaire House will be undergoing a rite with Bishop Long. He will calm it but it will never remain calm due to people provoking. I DO NOT recommend provoking inside the Bellaire House. We welcome head strong spiritual warriors of God to come to the Bellaire House to learn and teach what they learn. The Bellaire House is a hot ticket right now….it is for sale as a business or residential. I want to walk away and have a semi “normal” life. My good friend Andrea Perron said “We will never have a “normal” life after the paranormal. Tell your story. “I’ll tell my story as long as I don’t have to go back inside the Bellaire House“. The second book is in the works. The stories inside the second book are far more terrifying than the experiences I wrote about into the first book. I undergo therapy 3 times a week because of a major injury triggered by possession of someone who spent time in the Bellaire House. The second book will be out October 2016- keep an eye on the Bellaire House FaceBook page and website for more details.
