Ep. 33 The Haunting of The Harris House in Glendale, CA.-Minisode



Some places speak distinctly. Certain dank gardens cry aloud for a murder; certain old houses demand to be haunted; certain coasts are set apart for shipwrecks.

Robert Louis Stevenson

The Historic Harris House is a two-story Victorian Transitional home dating back to 1902. Recently, a film crew captured a “ghost” photo inside one of its upstairs rooms. Others, including the owner, have also experienced paranormal activity there as well.

On March 8th Hollyweird Paranormal attended Bizarre Los Angeles’ historic presentation and paranormal investigation at The Historic Harris House in Glendale, CA.  Tune in to find out the what ghosts linger on the 2nd floor along with an EVP that Tammie collected in one of the most active rooms of the house.

EP. 32 The Chino Hills Massacre | The True Crime & Paranormal Aftermath of the Ryen Family | Kevin Cooper



On June 5, 1983, William Hughes peered through a sliding glass door into the master bedroom of the Ryen family’s house in Chino Hills. He spotted the bloodied body of his 11-year-old son Christopher, who had spent the night with the family. Nearby were Peggy and Doug Ryen, hacked and slashed to death. Eight-year-old Joshua Ryen lay on the floor, his throat slit, but alive. Out of sight in the hall was Jessica Ryen, 10, no longer breathing.

Two days before the killings, Kevin Cooper had escaped from a prison in Chino Hills, where he was serving a sentence fro burglary.  Police found evidence – cigarette butts, a button from a prison uniform, a leather hatchet sheath – that Copper had spent two days in a house near the Ryen’s property after his espcape from CIM.

He was arrested about seven weeks after the killings.  At the trial, jurors heard the lone survivor give a videotaped statement that conflicted with what he had said when he was first interviewed with hospital staff and San Bernadino detectives.  Josh Ryen mentioned in his first statements that he saw 3 white or hispanic individuals in the house the night of the murders.  More statements and evidence were later turned into authorities -that would later not be used in Kevin Cooper’s trials to support his case.

EP. 28 Christmas Ghosts of California | Lost Traditions



Halloween might seem like the spookiest time of the year but Charles Dickens, M. R. James, Edith Wharton, and other literary greats felt otherwise. They were among the many authors who set their most terrifying stories during the dark and chilly days of Christmastime. Reading a ghost story on Christmas Eve was once as much a part of traditional holiday festivities as turkey, eggnog, mistletoe, and Saint Nick.

On this episode we share a submitted holiday ghost tale from one of our listeners as we dive into the lost tradition of sharing ghost tales during Christmas accompanied with a few California Christmas ghost tales.
