A paranormal investigator convicted of a sex offense that involved a 14-year-old recently set up a public event that will feature former cast members of the "Haunted Collector" reality television show. The event called "Haunted History Days" is scheduled for this fall but the paranormal television personalities won't be attending.

Paranormal investigator Johnny Demuary of the Butte Paranormal Investigative Team is a registered sex offender in the state of Montana. The 35-year-old was convicted of sexual assault and sexual intercourse without consent with a minor over fifteen years ago. The victim was a 14-year-old girl.

Demuary and his team have an upcoming public event called "Haunted History Days" scheduled for October 17. According to the event's description, cast members Jesslyn Brown and Brian Cano from "Haunted Collector" will be attending. But that is no longer now the case because the television personalities have now backed out from headlining the event.

"I am not stepping down from the event I created, no way in hell, I don't care what anyone thinks or says about me or my past, that's just it, it is my past and I am not gonna let anyone destroy what I have created, not now and not ever!" Demuary posted on the Butte Paranormal Investigative Team's Facebook page.

According to Demuary, Brown and Cano will not be attending the event and that he will seek other guests to headline it.

"I was on a conference call today with Brian and Jesslyn and we decided that to keep the drama out of their professional life, we are gonna keep them out of the event, although we have agreed to remain friends and keep in touch they will not be attending this event this year, we will be venturing off for new guests though and haunted history days will go on," the sex offender said.

Unfortunately the "Haunted Collector" was cancelled a few months ago so it appears that the television personalities are getting income by attending events like Demuary's. Demonologist John Zaffis announced last fall that the show won't be returning for another season on Syfy.

Demuary continues to deceive the public by not announcing to them that he is a sex offender. He still utilizes Facebook and other social network sites to get his way into people's homes to investigate the paranormal. Facebook has strict rules that prohibits sex offenders from using the social networking site. But Demuary doesn't seem to care about those rules because he has multiple Facebook pages and accounts.

"Convicted sex offenders are not allowed to use Facebook. If you've encountered an account that may belong to a convicted sex offender, please report the account to us. Please make sure you provide one of the following with your report: A link to a listing in a national sex offender registry, a link to an online news article, a link to a court document, or a documentation verifying the report attached to the sex offender report form. If you aren't able to include this with your report, we recommend that you ask a local law enforcement representative to contact us so we can take action on your report. Once we're able to verify someone's status as a sex offender, we immediately disable their account and remove all the information associated with it from Facebook," Facebook's terms of service states.

Demuary also uses multiple aliases. He has gone by John Brown, John Demuary, John Demaury, John Baptist
Demoury, John Babtist Demuary, John Baptise Lord, and other names.
