Co-hosts and lead investigators Dave Rhode and Craig Gozzetti formed their paranormal team, Investigating American Haunts, in 2012. According to their Facebook page, “For each investigation we partner with a local group and joint investigation of that groups favorite haunted locations. Using technology and proven methods of paranormal investigation, along with personal experiences, research conducted by our research team can lead to a more complete picture of any possible paranormal activity. Thereby provide our viewers with the best possible evidence available. We then take our cooperative investigations and edit them for narrow-cast networks, Internet Broadcasts and Television.”
Rhode and Gozzetti will search for paranormal activity in the home. They are the first paranormal show to be granted permission to film at the location.
