Robert M. Hunnicutt

A ghostly encounter 33 years ago in an Arizona theater was the beginning of Bob Hunnicutt’s journey into the world of the ghosts and hauntings. A theater ghost challenged his notions of the existence of life after death and helped him realize that science could not easily explain everything.

Over the last 19 years, Bob has investigated cases of phenomena associated with a wide variety of hauntings at private residences, businesses and historical landmarks throughout the state of Georgia, the Southeast and portions of the Mid-west. He has worked with renowned members of the paranormal community; exorcist Father Andrew Calder, demonologist John Zaffis, paranormal investigator Patrick Burns, ghost hunter Patti Starr, psychics Chip Coffey, Reese Christian and Sharon Johns.

He is the founder and director of the Georgia Ghost Society and the Central Georgia representative for the American Ghost Society; has been a featured investigator at Paranormal Underground events held at the Talbott Tavern in Bardstown Kentucky and the Mansfield Reformatory in Mansfield Ohio. He regularly speaks at local colleges, historical societies and paranormal conferences that include OmegaCon in Birmingham Alabama, GhoStock6 in Savannah Georgia, the Mid-South Paranormal Conference in Louisville and ScareFest in Lexington Kentucky.

He has been the featured guest on radio programs that include Coast to Coast AM, Ghostly Talk Radio, The X Zone Radio Show, Pulse Paranormal Radio in England and the nationally syndicated Lisa Birnbach Show. Bob has been involved in media projects with Turner South and Kim Eason Productions in Atlanta and is currently working with Southlan-Films on a documentary series titled “The Seekers, Investigating Southern Haunts”.

20 QUESTIONS Robert M. Hunnicutt



1. Where do you see ghost hunting, paranormal groups, web sites, ghost information, tours and books in 10 years?

I’d like to see a more responsible and cooperative attitude with more focus on quality instead of quantity.

2. What would you personally consider to be the definitive proof that ghosts are real?

While there is no doubt in my mind that definitive proof will one day be discovered, but I don’t think we have the means to prove it at this time. Many equate definitive proof with scientific proof and it may take quite some time to provide the scientific community the empirical evidence they require.

3. What is the most real evidence you personally have uncovered so far?

By far, it is some of the video and audio recordings we collected over the years that include an apparition walking

up a flight of stairs and another peeking around the corner; EVPs recorded during an investigation where the spirit

made numerous threatening comments aimed at the mother of a young girl that was the focus of the haunting.


4. Are you skeptical of the claims other make of their findings?

While those making the claims may be reputable and trustworthy, their interpretation or identification of the activity could be incorrect due to reasons such as stress, fear, inexperience or their strong desire to witness the paranormal. But to be completely honest, I’m still initially skeptical of any findings we gather.


5. If you could investigate your "Dream Haunted Hot Spot" where would it be?

Stirling Castle in Scotland.

6. What was your first paranormal encounter?

My first encounter occurred in late June 1976 when I was an extra an extra in a bi–centennial play in Arizona. After one of the last dress rehearsals, we were instructed to return our costumes to the wardrobe department of the theatre before leaving. As I walked into the room, there was an older woman sitting at a table sewing by hand and oddly never acknowledged my presence as I put my costume on the table next to her and turned to leave. Within a couple of steps, I remembered a problem with my costume and turned around to tell the woman about it, but she wasn’t there. Because I was standing in front of the only door leading into or out of the room and in a matter of mere seconds, this woman seemed to have completely disappeared. As my search for her continued,two members of the theatre staff entered the room and noticed by my expression that something was wrong. When I told them what had just happened they began to smile and chuckle, and then told me the theatre was haunted by a seamstress who apparently loved her work so much that she had decided to stay.


7. What scares you about Ghost Hunting or Paranormal Investigations?

Being responsible for so many people, I often worry about a member of the group being injured during an investigation or ghost hunt. Even though you may take every possible precaution, there is always risk of someone getting hurt in a dark and often scary environment.


8. If you could work side by side with one of the paranormal investigator greats, who would it be?

Over the years, I’ve been fortunate to work with some of the best but I would really love an opportunity to work with parapsychologists Kerry Gaynor and Barry Taft.

9. Read any good Paranormal Books lately?

Yes, the latest is “Roswell: History, Haunts and Legends written by my friend Dianna Avena.

10. What Question do people ask you most when you tell them you’re a paranormal investigator?

“are there really such things as ghosts” or “tell me about the scariest thing you’ve seen while ghost hunting.”

11. In your opinion, where is the most Haunted city in America?

Savannah Georgia


12. Do you feel more people should get involved with Ghost hunting or Paranormal Investigation?

Generally no, but it really depends on their reasons for wanting to becoming involved in this field in the first

place and what they hope to accomplish.


13. What does the future hold for you?

It’s hard to say for sure, but I hope to continue on the course I’m presently on, investigating, research, teaching and lecturing.

14. Paranormal Conventions do you see them growing? And which ones are the Must go to ones?

Most definitely, the number of conferences and conventions has already grown dramatically in a short time and will probably continue to do so. There are a number of great conferences and conventions but I couldn’t say any are a Must.



15. What is your most favored tool of the trade?

Video because of the success I’ve had with it over the years, but equally important are patience and using common sense, without those no equipment in existence today would do any of us any good at all.


16. Tell us about your best moment in investigating or conference attending for you?

Probably one of the best moments during an investigation is when one of your team members has their first,

legitimate paranormal experience, especially if it was recorded either on video or audio.


17. What is the hardest part about being a paranormal investigator?

Far too often, we fail to realize how the paranormal field can affect the lives of those who look to us for help. Not too long ago, I received a photograph from a mother that had recently lost her oldest son. The photo showed the the mother, father and remaining two children sitting on the sofa and just above them was a large “orb”. The mother was desperate to learn if the “orb” was the spirit of her recently deceased son and if he was attempting to contact her. Do you simply tell her what she wants to hear or do you spout off every reason why orb photos aren’t reliable proof of the supernatural? No matter which road you take, they will be the ones to suffer the most.


18. How do you document your investigations?

Combining the use of both video and audio recorders, written notes and investigation logs as well as relaying information immediately to a central monitoring station. There it is notated with the time, location and description of the activity and other pertinent information.

19. Have you ever taken a ghost Tour? And, what about it did you not like?

Yes, several of them. There were too many people on the tour which made it very difficult to hear what the guide was saying.


20. What in the field of ghost hunting and Paranormal Investigating needs the most attention?

A stronger sense of unity and solidarity within the paranormal community and a more mature atmosphere. So many of those involved within the paranormal community seem to only focus on what they can get out of it instead of what contributions they could make.
