Meeting with Lorraine Warren & Tony Spera

On November 18-20, NAPS Team Leader Mike Chapman and Case Manager Kim Frith will be traveling to Monroe, Connecticutt, to meet Lorraine Warren and her son-in-law Tony Spera at her home. Lorraine hosts occasional events out of her home and speaks on her experiences as a paranormal investigator. Lorraine, along with her deceased husband Ed Warren, are two of the most widely known demonologists ever. Ed and Lorraine were involved in such famous cases as the Amityville Horror and the Smurl Haunting. Sadly, Ed passed away in 2006. Part of the evening consists of going with Lorraine to the cemetery to Ed's grave site to honor him. The evening provides direct time spent with Lorraine and asking questions and of course, taking pictures with her.

As a demonologist, I (Mike) have always wanted to meet Lorraine and get to speak with her. I set it aside this year, 2011, to make some conferences and trips and it hasn't worked out. I missed the AGS Conference and Midsouth Conference in Louisville. However, this trip will make the year a very successful one in that regard. Meeting Lorraine will more than make up for it, as I have always had a tremendous amount of respect for her and Ed's pioneering work. I respect them as religious, even Christian, demonologists. I can't wait!

After a dinner together, Lorraine will also be showing a video of an actual exorcism of a farmer from Monroe, Massachusetts, and her collection of artifacts from their famous cases. She will be sharing advice and tales from her experiences. It should be an amazing evening that will provide an opportunity to learn from one of the masters in the field.
