About Ernie Alonzo, Charles Spratley and Haunted Orange County. 

Haunted Orange started out in 2009 as the brain child of Ernie Alonzo, a lifetime Old Town Orange resident who began a website just as a hobby and called it HauntedOrange.com. On the site he would post historic photographs of Orange, as well as ghost stories he collected from personal interviews of shopkeepers and business owners in Old Town Orange. Later that year he met Charles Spratley, a San Diego native, local historian and author who relocated to Orange County and had formerly ran a successful ghost tour company in San Diego. Soon the two were brainstorming on how they would turn Ernie's collection of historical data and ghostly tales into a ghost tour for Old Town Orange with a heavy emphasis on local history. In September of 2010, with much local anticipation, the first Old Town Orange Haunted History Ghost walk was launched. 

The summer of 2014 launched the Downtown Santa Ana Ghost Walk with an opening gala at the Howe-Waffle historic Mansion attended by city officials, local media and invited guests. The same year a name change to Haunted Orange County was made in anticipation of more Orange County city locations being added to the company's offerings. In the fall of 2017 they launched their Black Star Canyon Ghost Walk and later became the first and currently only ghost tour company to run a county licensed and permitted tour in Black Star Canyon. On February of 9, 2019 our all new San Juan Capistrano tour will debut.

In addition, since 2010 they have produced a diverse offering of paranormal, haunted and horror themed special events including, haunted themed dinners, annual paranormal lecture series, sugar skull workshops, mask sculpting courses, UFO sky watches, Desert Ghost Town sleepovers, horror movie screenings, panels at halloween and paranormal conventions, guest speaking at colleges and universities, paranormal celebrity meet & greets, cemetery tours, theatrical seance recreations, psychic presentations, Bigfoot and cryptozoology lectures and much, much more!

Beginning 2012 they conducted public paranormal investigation events all over Southern California as well as a handful out of state with some of the most recognized paranormal TV personalities and researchers in the world. 

Haunted Orange County is currently operated by Fandom Productions, a fan based entertainment and management company which also operates Bob Gurr's Waltland Disney History Tours in Los Angeles. (not affiliated with the Walt Disney Company).

Lost & “Unhinged” at The Winchester Mystery House with Walter Magnuson

Lost & “Unhinged” at The Winchester Mystery House with Walter Magnuson

September 23, 2019

Recorded Live from the World famous Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, California, Bridget special guest is the GM of the worlds most unusual mansion, Walter Magnuson. 

The Winchester Mystery House® is an architectural wonder and historic landmark in San Jose, CA that was once the personal residence of Sarah Lockwood Pardee Winchester, the widow of William Wirt Winchester and heiress to a large portion of the Winchester® Repeating Arms fortune.

Tragedy befell Sarah – her infant daughter died of a childhood illness and a few years later her husband was taken from her by tuberculosis.

Shortly after her husband’s death, Sarah left their home in New Haven, CT and moved out west to San Jose, CA.  There, she bought an eight-room farmhouse and began what could only be described as the world’s longest home renovation, stopping only when Sarah passed on September 5, 1922.

But what remained is indeed a mystery.   Even before her passing, rumors of a “mystery house” being built by an eccentric and wealthy woman swirled.    Was she instructed to build this home by a psychic? Was she haunted by the ghosts of those felled by the “Gun that Won the West”?  Did construction truly never stop?  What motivated a well-educated socialite to cut herself off from the rest of the world and focus almost solely on building the world’s most beautiful, yet bizarre mansion?

Find out on this episode of Ghost Magnet.

With as few media opportunities between 1999 to 2007, when in 2007 a major opportunity came knocking for Ray and his ghost hunting team, they were asked to star in a new late night paranormal TV series from ITV West called The Paranormal 5, which has since seen his celebrity profile rise ever since to new exciting heights.

 

Born with a natural comedic ability and warm personality as a presenter, Ray is a pure talent within the media fields both on TV, Stage and Radio, while a serious side makes him very diverse in the subject fields he has been asked to work within while keeping his humour, his continual involvement in charity events and gala's or corporate events keeps him very busy. He is often asked on a regular basis to guest on many digital UK and International radio shows, and more recently he was live in the studio in Los Angeles on The Sheena Metal Experience on LA Talk Radio, he was also live from Monterrey Mexico on local radio and in local press, he has also appeared on various shows on Sky TV such as The Kevin Moore Show and also The Sporah Show, with many TV pilot credits, press and magazine to his name as a writer and being interviewed.

 

As a TV Presenter Ray is very much at home in front of the camera and has since worked on many productions, such as a joint project with TV Polari, as Presenter and the writer of a TV pilot called 'Screamers', with Most Haunted’s demonologist Fred Batt, Live in London TV chat show, London TV Calling which was aired recently in New York and Ghostly Getaways a TV pilot also written by Ray.

 

His thirty year passion for the paranormal eventually lead to opportunities such as filming with BBC3 talent department, being asked to appear on The Graham Norton Show (which Ray and his team declined) filming as part of the Vision News paranormal team ‘Vision Paranormal’, previously to this Ray starred in a very minor role in a UK based film as a Russian soldier called Nine Dead Gay Guys, a British comedy by 9 Films starring Stephen Berkoff and Carol Decker. He also went behind the scenes with a Living TV series called Ghost Towns which was filming in Salisbury, he was later asked to be a future advisory on a forth coming television episode. With being asked to work on TV pilots, starring in them, Radio show guesting roles and many further media/press credits added to his name and further projects in the pipeline Ray is sure to be on our screens again in the very near future. (see his resume via his website)

 

This year Ray will be concentrating on new TV  and live stage Presenting work outside of the paranormal genre, while still working within the paranormal fields, as well as being at the forefront of being Patron for the charity Bullies Out.
