A local ghost hunter will be featured Tuesday night, July 31, on a program called Haunted Highway.
Jon Almada, who lives in Shingle Springs and has a business called Ghost-Rider-Investigations, was interviewed last month by a film crew from the program in the Cuppa Coffee & More shop on Main Street.
Owned by Jill Barnes, the coffee shop owner couldn’t have been more excited about being chosen as the place for the interview.
Barnes said the opportunity arose after the segment producer, Patrick Powell, came into the shop for an iced coffee. “We were talking and then he asked if they could film in the shop saying it was a nice venue and he wanted to use it as a backdrop,” she said.
“We’ve been told we have a couple of ghosts in the coffee shop,” said Barnes. “Prior to buying this location, the previous owners had a different ghost hunter come in with equipment and check it out.”
Asked if she’s ever seen any ghosts in the coffee shop, Barnes said, “Yes, we’ve seen vapors moving through the room.”
Barnes said that during the interview she learned Almada has done many investigations on Main Street and has encountered “lots” of ghosts. One apparition he said he encountered was at The Bookery. It was only two or three feet away and they startled each other when they came face to face.
The episode featuring Almada is called “Louisiana Swamp Woman/Pioneer Cemetery” and will be featured on Tuesday, July 31, on the Syfy channel.
