A new Travel Channel series debuted on September 23 dubbed as “The Dead Files”. While criminology relies on factual and physical evidence to have a case and psychics base theirs on instincts and gut feelings, the program will put face-to-face a detective and a psychic to investigate a crime.
Steve DiSchiavi, a detective, goes against Amy Allan, a psychic, who has experienced working on 350 paranormal investigations, in investigating crimes.
On its premiere episode, the two are featured uncovering a murder in the past whose truths are hidden in the walls of a farmhouse in New York. The case is of a mother who attempted to kill her family in the 1900s.
DiSchiavi’s strategies are to interview locals about the woman and talk to an expert on poisons. Allan, on the other hand, gets inside the house and feels the spirits as they talk to her about what really happened that fateful day.
Although DiSchiavi claims to be a skeptic on psychic methods, he admits that he is shocked very constantly by the accuracy of Allan’s findings though she does not use scientific or traditional research. After having been disappointed by two psychics involved in some investigations by the NYPD, Allan seems to be a breather for him.
“After working with Amy and doing what I do, my attitude towards psychics has changed 180 degrees. Out two sides mesh well together”, he said.
Right now, they have finished filming 6 episodes. Among these is the one in Cameron, NC in a house that is allegedly being haunted by dolls that are thought to be used as vessels for the dead.
