Ghost Huntress - Maryanne Porter - (a.k.a "Mari") Founder of the Santa Cruz Ghost Hunters, proprietor of Santa Cruz Haunted Tours, and author of Haunted Santa Cruz, California.
In College I majored in Criminal Justice, taking a deep interest in psychology, criminal behavior and law. My interests later developed into learning more about unusual history, unsolved crimes and mysterious events. Which led me on a path to the paranormal, legends, myths and even serial killers; I was raised in a very strict Roman Catholic family, I even had an Uncle who while alive ,was a Cardinal for the Vatican in Rome, directed under Pope John Paul the 2nd– however, despite my strict Catholic upbringing, I never believed religion to be as black & white as I had been taught. I often wondered about heaven, hell, good, evil, purgatory, angels, spirits, etc…Which even led me on a path to interview imprisoned serial killers , I wanted to know are they haunted by their crimes or due they truly lack a conscious, the epitome of evil.. All of this and more has led me to where I am today. Researching the strange and unknown., the natural and the supernatural.
