Local ghost hunter may be on TV

Mark Schwabe of Genoa hopes to appear on the popular television show “Ghost Hunters” next week, but he won’t know if producers included his interview until the show airs.

“They interviewed a few of us on the phone, and then they asked me to come over the next day to be interviewed on-camera,” said Schwabe, a member of local paranormal investigation group Ghost Head Soup.

“Ghost Hunters” investigated reports of paranormal activity at the historic Tinker Swiss Cottage Museum and Gardens in Rockford over the summer. After the investigation, producers wanted to compare notes with the experiences of local ghost hunters.

“I told them where I have caught evidence, and they were interested in that,” Schwabe said.

The day after the interview, the show revealed its findings to Steve Litteral, executive director of the Tinker Swiss Cottage.

“Ghost Head Soup has helped us out quite a bit,” Litteral said. “They have done plenty of investigations here and they have done some lecturing.”

Although Litteral is not a ghost hunter himself, he is interested in ghost hunting and said he has been watching “Ghost Hunters” since it began in 2004.

The Tinker Swiss Cottage episode of “Ghost Hunters” will air at 8 p.m. Wednesday on Syfy.
