    I feel like because Ryan and Shane and the BuzzFeed company goes in with camera equipment and microphones, the ghosts don't want to cooperate. most people who have incidents with ghosts aren't actively trying to record anything...they encounter it unexpected.

    Ghosts don't come near Ryan and Shane because the ghosts themselves are scared of Shane😂😂😂😂.... (no kidding it's actually the reason why the ghost never approach them)......... you see videos of people communicating with ghosts, it's because their scared and the difference is Shane is not scared and doesn't belive in ghosts.......

  • Meg DiPaolo
    Meg DiPaolo 19 days ago

    Lizzie claimed Abby had received a note that a friend was sick. Nobody ever found who the sick friend was, or who might’ve delivered the note, or the note itself.
    Abby is believed to have been killed hours before Andrew. She was upstairs changing guest room sheets for her Brother-in-Law.
    Ok, I could go one, but I realize this is a Supernatural not a True Crime. They need to do a True Crime. After all, Lizzie was found not guilty. It’s hard to believe she didn’t do it, but there’s some tricky stuff.

  • Meg DiPaolo
    Meg DiPaolo 19 days ago

    I don’t believe that Shane doesn’t know about the Lizzie Borden case. He’s a pretty smart history dude. Maybe he was just saying that to give Ryan an opening to give an intro they didn’t show. Cmon, Shane knows about Lizzie Borden’s 40 whacks. I must have faith.
