New Orleans, Louisiana has a storied spiritual history, and is considered by many to be the most haunted city in America. In August of 2005 a tragic event occurred that would change the city forever–Hurricane Katrina. But how did this affect the spirit world? One local couple would soon find out. Zack Bowen and Addie Hall decided to remain as "holdouts" in the French Quarter. Then, in October of 2006, Zack committed suicide by jumping from the top floor of a local hotel, just a little more than a week after he committed a heinous and shocking act: he strangled his Addie and dismembered her corpse. The crime sent shockwaves through New Orleans as the locals searched for answers. Did Zack's experience in the Iraq War years before cause him to do the unthinkable? Or, as some locals speculate, was Zack the victim of a demonic possession brought on during the aftermath of Katrina…creating the perfect storm of hungry spirits and vulnerable prey?

Season Finale
In 1692, America witnessed the most horrific acts of injustice when 19 innocent people were hanged and one was pressed to death for the practice of witchcraft. Today, Salem Massachusetts is a town renowned for its numerous accounts of paranormal activity. Four locations, with deep connections to the Salem Witch Trials, are plagued by restless spirits demanding that their innocence be known: a restaurant, which used to be an apple orchard and the place where the first hanging victim was arrested; the third oldest cemetery in Salem where a man was pressed to death; a historic house where two feared judges would decide the fate of supposed witches; and Gallows Hill where the hangings took place. But was there more to the Salem Witch Trials than just greed and hysteria? Could there be an underlying theory that made these trials unavoidable?
