Many from the paranormal community took to social media to pay their respects:

White Orbs debunked in Eloise video
A video of “light anomalies” shot by an investigation crew at the Eloise Psychiatric Hospital in Westland, Mich. has been debunked.
Detroit Paranormal Expeditions co-founder Jeff Adkins said the orbs were a result of flashlight reflections in a monitor.
Adkins and his team investigated the facility to get a better insight into the evolution of mental health and the treatment of patients.
“The spirit world is a lot more vast than a lot of people acknowledge,” Adkins wrote in an email to the Detroit Free Press. “I don’t think only prisons, only hospitals and places like that hold spirit energy. I think you can find it often in everyday buildings.”
Two UFOs spotted in satellite video of the moon
Conspiracy theorist Scott C. Waring shared a provocative video he obtained from a witness in Edirne, Turkey, who happened to be observing the moon through a telescope.
The video shows two diamond-shaped UFOs flying side-by-side over the lunar landscape.
“If these were meteors, they would be leaving a trail of debris behind them and there is no way they would be perfect diamonds flying side by side,” Waring said.
Others were not so sure. The brief video segment was called into question for its brevity. One YouTube commenter, Michael Kozak, said it could be the Lunar Orbiter.

Lady in White Snapped
The St. Louis Paranormal Research Society had its own Brown Lady of Raynham Hall photo.
The popular Lemp Mansion, located in the Benton Park neighbourhood of Missouri largest metropolitan area, was hosting a ghost tour when an intrepid photographer caught the “Lady in White”.
The former residence of the Lemps, who were local brewers, was the site where four suicides occurred.
Unfortunately, as quickly as the social media storm began when the group posted the photo on Facebook on March 27, it was kiboshed by a murder mystery actor.
Suzanne Bettonville commented on the Facebook post, “This ‘apparition’ caught in a photograph at the Lemp Mansion is a colleague of mine from Jest Murder Mysteries.”
It is alleged that the post was taken down, or blocked, by another poster Lynn Marie, who reposted the message.
“I’ve researched the Lemp family extensively and will not stop here to make it known that this picture is being promoted as fraudulently paranormal,” she wrote.
Talk about St. Louis making arch enemies.
