A radio host teamed up with a paranormal team to hunt for the ghost of a serial killer last Thursday. While broadcasting live on the air, the radio personality had an emotional breakdown that many folks believed to have been caused by the ghost of the Zodiac Killer.
Ground Zero radio show host Clyde Lewis was broadcasting live at the Martinez News-Gazette newspaper building in Martinez, California when he suddenly had an unexpected emotional episode. According to Lewis, it was a paranormal-induced panic attack and one of the most terrifying events in his life.
"On October 17th, 2013, I was asked to investigate a claim by Central Valley Paranormal that the former editor of the Gazette, Richard Gaikowski who died in 2004, was haunting the building," Lewis said in a post on his blog.
Many people believed that Richard Gaikowski was the Zodiac Killer and was responsible for a string of murders in northern California in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Lewis used a spirit box live on the air while listeners participated in asking Gaikowski's ghost various questions involving the murders.
"While I was broadcasting on the air during a live remote, I was interviewing Crystal Willett of the paranormal group. I was asking her some very direct questions about her relationship with this ghost that claimed to be the Zodiac. She answered many of my questions. However, halfway through my interview with her, she broke down and cried. I could see the terror in her face and I felt helpless and needed to somehow gain control of my show while still trying to help her," Lewis said.
Lewis later reviewed the audio and video footage and learned that members of the paranormal team were provoking the spirit by calling him a coward. During Lewis' emotional break-down his name was said through a spirit box.
"Whatever triggered the tears decided to come after me. I felt my throat close up and I began to choke. My body began to freeze up, there was a cold sensation that moved down by back into my legs and my muscles felt like they were going to burst. I couldn't continue the show, and lost all control of my emotions. I felt like I was going to die, and all I could do was cry out and leave the table where I was broadcasting," Lewis said about the incident.
