Lorraine Moran, a clairvoyant and light trance medium, was born in 1927, she and her husband Ed met at the tender age of 16, and were married one year later. He joined the Navy but came home during a 30-day survivor’s leave after the sinking of his ship.

Together they would become pioneers in the field of paranormal investigation, and were tied to some of the most famous hauntings of the last century.

The Warrens spent more than their fair share of time dealing with skeptics and naysayers, many of whom claim that the entirety of their evidence was falsified. Others believed that the Warrens were onto something real, but that Ed had a flair for the dramatic that led to larger than life claims that could not be confirmed.
