Jennifer Love Hewitt’s Haunted Home

A while back I wrote a post about how the television set where Ghost Whisperer was filmed was haunted. Ghosts were spotted standing behind actors in scenes that were reviewed afterward. More about this is here.

Jennifer Love Hewitt
Jennifer Love Hewitt was the star of this show and she was not a novice when it comes to ghosts.

Hewitt lived in a house that she felt was haunted. She called in a paranormal investigator, Mary Ann Winkowski to help. Winkowski states she can communicate with the deceased.

What Winkowski found was an earthbound spirit--a young man--had taken up residence in Hewitt’s home.

This man had been killed in a car crash, and he told Winkowski that he had been a big fan of Hewitt’s while alive. He had even attended high school with her--but Hewitt did not know him.

Winkowski discovered this man’s name and address.

Winkowski checked out his story and discovered he had attended school with Hewitt and had been killed in a car accident. The family told her he was a fan and that his bedroom was covered in posters of Hewitt.

Mary Ann Winkowski with Hewitt
Hewitt afterward stated she was actually comfortable with his presence for she felt his ghost “was looking out for her.”

This haunting is a classic example of why ghosts often remain behind. In this case because of a strong attachment to a person--even though the affection wasn’t mutual.

It was actually this haunting that inspired the creation of the TV show Ghost Whisperer, which aired from 2005 to 2010 on CBS.

Winkowski was a consultant on the show and Hewitt was an associate producer.

Mary Ann Winkowski since has written a book entitled When Ghosts Speak.
