Wanna hear a scary story?
It's a dark tale about a struggling musician/beauty school student so desperate for attention that she apparently tricked a local news station into doing a segment about how her truck was haunted by the ghost of her dead boyfriend!!!
In 2004, Deanna Stinson says she dated a man named Alex and, about a month into their relationship, he overdosed on drugs and died. She told Sacramento's CBS-13 that, since then, her dearly departed dude has been haunting her car!
In the "news" segment, she confessed:
"I could feel touching on my hair and on my shoulders, on my thighs, just everywhere… My concentration would be lost a lot of the times, but I would just pray, and then it would stop."
So the young woman did what
anyone very few people would do — she called paranormal specialist Paul Dale Roberts who wound up confirming her suspicions: Deanna's 2002 GMC was haunted!
Ch-ch-check out the chilling news segment for yourself (below)!
Scary stuff, right? Hmm, we suppose, but the story doesn't end there!
Ghost hunter Paul, as it turns out, isn't just some random dude she found in the phonebook. The 59-year-old ghost expert is also Deanna's husband — the two of them (pictured ABOVE) were married last month!!!
And Deanna? She isn't just a beauty school student with a freaky tale to tell; she's a musician (possibly named Starchild). You can see a music video Paul filmed of her HERE.
So, yeah, it looks like this ghost story was probz staged! It's a frightening tale alright, a frightening tale of what people will do to get free publicity on the local news!
CBS, possibly embarrassed by being duped by Deanna, has since taken their video and story offline, but as we all know the internet never forgets!
Do U think this girl was really haunted by her dead boyfriend?
Or did she and her much, much, much older husband conjure up this ghost tale to get fifteen minutes in the spotlight?
