Shepherd Express presents: “Q & A with Katrina Weidman of Paranormal Lockdown,” Saturday, Wisconsin Room
Katrina Weidman became actively involved in paranormal research while attending Penn State University. While pursuing degrees in Integrative Arts and Theater and a minor in music technology, she was also able to pursue her passion for the paranormal by becoming case manager for the famed Paranormal Research Society (originally founded as a Penn State student organization). PRS (and Katrina) became the focus of the A&E channel docudrama Paranormal State, which aired from 2007-2011.
Katrina then served as host to the Chiller channel’s Real Fear: the Truth Behind the Movies, which explored horror movies based on actual events. It has been rated Chiller’s number one original program.
Katrina currently co-stars (along with Nick Groff, of Ghost Adventures) on the hit Destination America show Paranormal Lockdown. The popular and acclaimed first season that aired earlier this year led to a renewal for a second season. A Halloween 2-hour special airs just a couple weeks after our conference, on October 28. That special will document Katrina and Nick (along with Haunted Collector star John Zaffis) on their investigation of the Black Monk House in Yorkshire, England.
At the Milwaukee Paranormal Conference, Katrina will be featured in a special Q and A session facilitated by Mike Huberty and Wendy Lynn Staats, hosts of the podcast See You On The Other Side. They’ll talk about Katrina’s experiences on the first season of Paranormal Lockdown, and what we can expect for season 2. It’ll be followed by a Q and A from the audience, and an autograph session– Katrina will have photos available to sign for $20.
This presentation is made possible by the Shepherd Express, Milwaukee’s weekly alternative. Be a reader, not a follower: www.shepherdexpress.com
VIP tickets, which includes a dinner party with Katrina and other guest speakers are available until Monday, Oct. 10 and are $75. We also have 1-day ($10) 2-day ($15) and Super (both days and Raven’s Ball party, $23) available here: milwaukeeparacon.brownpapertickets.com
Presentation: “Ghostly Gadgets: Engineering the Paranormal,” Sunday, Wisconsin Room
Elizabeth Saint has always demonstrated a sensitivity to the supernatural. The manifestations she first experienced at her childhood home in south Jersey are what initially led her to pursue a life trying to better understand the unexplainable. Six years ago, Elizabeth moved to the Washington D.C. area for an engineering job with the Department of Defense. The increase of activity that escalated in her apartment at that time pushed Elizabeth to deepen her understanding of the paranormal by starting to work with Maryland Paranormal Research® as a Technician and Investigator.
In 2015, Elizabeth was approached through her team along with Nick Groff (Ghost Adventures/ Paranormal Lockdown) and Bill Hartley (Greater Maryland Paranormal Society) by Chief Mike King of Shepherdstown, West Virginia to help aid explanation for the increase of paranormal activity occurring in town. Their experiences were documented and aired in 2016 on Destination America as a six-part series known as Ghosts of Shepherdstown.
Presently, Elizabeth is focusing on her engineered paranormal devices under the name Ghostly Gadgets to be made available to the public in 2017. The E-Box, as seen on season 1 of Paranormal Lockdown, is one of these designs.

We are thrilled to announce our keynote speaker on the subject of paranormal investigation, Katrina Weidman, star (alongside Nick Groff, formerly of Ghost Adventures) of the hit new show Paranormal Lockdown.
Paranormal Lockdown premiered at the beginning of this month and was the Destination America channel’s highest rated series premiere. The show features Katrina and Nick staying for 72 hours in some of the nation’s most notoriously haunted locations, with guest appearances by a variety of famed paranormal investigators. The first two episodes have aired and both featured some rather frightening evidence!
Katrina also appeared on A&E channel’s popular docu-drama Paranormal State, which lasted 5 seasons and followed Katrina and her Paranormal Research Society teammates and their cases. She was also the host of Chiller channel’s fan favorite show Real Fear: The Truth Behind the Movies and is also an actress, lead singer of a band, a producer, and a lecturer.
