Meet the lecturers for this year’s Para-X



Chris DiCesare – The C2D1 Haunting

Chris is a New York-based author and lecturer whose experiences as a college student have been the focus of several books, films, and television shows.  This includes the SYFY Network’s “School Spirits” series, and the award-winning, independent film, “Please Talk To Me”.

 The C2D1 Haunting ranks among the most documented paranormal events in US history, defined by full-bodied apparitions, disembodied voices, moving objects, physical attacks, photographs, and audio tapes.  DiCesare was at its epicenter, earning him the nickname “The Ghost Boy of Geneseo”.

Di Cesare’s appearance on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory in June 2014 helped propel his book – “Surviving Evidence-Memories of an Extreme Haunting” (Dark Moon Press 2014) – to Amazon’s #5 best seller for its genre.



Chuck Lehman – An Introduction to Crystal Singing Bowls

Chuck is a paranormal investigator, currently located in Monroe NJ. His investigations started in 2010, in response to a skeptic’s challenge issued during a “Ghost Adventures” episode. At a local cemetery, he recorded six possible spirit voices on his audio recorder.  He has been investigating ever since.

Chuck has investigated such famous haunted locations  as Lizzie Borden House, Gettysburg Battlefield, and Rolling Hills Asylum. However, he also aids families and owners of private residences in determining if their disturbances are caused by natural or paranormal sources. Chuck also enjoys working in tandem with other investigative teams, offering counseling should they need assistance.
