Paranormal investigators bunking in Bellaire house


It's Halloween night and many are attending haunted houses for a good scare.

But there's one house in Belmont County that haunts all year. It's been dubbed The Bellaire House, and it’s located on Belmont Street.

One family moved out because of what they call strange activity happening inside.

Strange voices and unexplained activity are things Kristin Lee and her family were not aware of until they moved into the house in July 2005. At first, Lee thought she was going crazy, but then she says something happened to her dog.

“I was in bed, she was lifted up and just slammed up against the wall,” Lee said. “I said that was it, that was the last straw, so we left.”

Lee then got in touch with paranormal investigators who visited the house. The house was featured on TLC’s “Paranormal Lockdown."

This Halloween, another group of investigators led by Brian Steiner are spending the night with different types of equipment.

“You feel like something is here, as soon as I walked in the door, I felt this static charge,” said Steiner, a paranormal investigator.

Lee and her family led NEWS9 on a tour through the house.

“This is the Emily Davis bedroom,” Lee said. “What's unique about that is it's a child spirit that a lot of the investigators have made communication with.”

The investigators are using technology in an attempt to communicate.

“What's coming through on the pieces of equipment, that the paranormal investigators are actually finding makes sense once we research it,” Lee said.

Lee says she has many questions about the family who once lived here.

“I feel like I’m part of their family and I’d like to hear how they are doing on the other side and hear how they see us,” Lee said. “How do spirits see us? Are we accepted?”
