In memory of Hans Holzer (1920-2009)
I know I'm a bit late on posting this, but that's because I was totally unaware of it until a little over 20 minutes ago. Hans Holzer, a respected paranormal investigator and in many cases a legend in the field of paranormal investigation, passed away this past Sunday, April 26th.
Hans Holzer, was born in Austria, and was responsible for authoring over 138 books on the paranormal, as well as appearing and starring on a number of paranormal documentaries and TV specials.
While one of his most famous cases, the haunting at 112 Ocean Ave. in Amityville, New York, had brought him greater fame as well as likely some discredit (the cases is still disputed to be a fake) it cannot be denied that Holzer has given a great deal to the paranormal community and will be greatly missed.
My condolences to his family, however, let's hope that Mr. Holzer has found the long saught after answers he's be looking for. I will also be adding a little tribute to Holzer in Flagler's Few.
