When there’s something strange in the neighborhood, who you gonna call? Rick Castle!
Actually, you’d probably call TV ghost wrangler Jack Sinclair, who is investigating some paranormal activity at the old McClaren Mansion. Strange things are happening as he videotapes from the inside. Jack says, “Mercy, I can see it. Mercy!” Then there are screams. Then silence. Dead silence.
Jack Sinclair’s body is found inside the living room. His throat was slit, but the blood splatter on the floor was unobstructed by the killer’s body. Jack’s producer says all camera signals went south just before the murder. The owner of the McClaren Mansion, Steve Fuller, says his place has been hard to rent for 20 years thanks to its haunted history. As you may have guessed, Castle is scaring up lots of paranormal possibilities for the murder.
Jack’s cameraman, Barry Bavetta, could have tampered with the video signals. But the guy alibis out. Castle’s ghostly theories become a little more credible when some video footage shows a tripod moving across the floor on its own. There have been several murders inside the mansion over the years with the killers almost always claiming a demon was responsible. Spooky.
