this episode of Paranormal Underground Radio: In The Dark, we talk with Bruce
Orr, paranormal investigator, retired criminal investigator, founder of Lost in
Legend, and author of Ghosts of the USS Yorktown and other paranormal titles. Bruce is a retired criminal investigator turned author. After retiring, he
combined his love for investigation and research with his love for history and
writing. His first book, Six Miles to Charleston is an in-depth look at
the facts behind the legend of John and Lavinia Fisher, who were accused of
robbing and murdering their guests at an Inn outside of Charleston, SC, in
Bruce has also written Haunted Summerville, SC and Ghosts of Berkeley
County, SC in which he covers the legends and lore that he grew up with in
the South Carolina Lowcountry. In these books, he interviews the witnesses,
examines the locations, and even relates a few of his own experiences.
In Ghosts of the USS Yorktown, The Phantoms of Patriots Point, Bruce
tackles the paranormal tales associated with the World War II-era aircraft
carrier since its arrival at Patriots Point Maritime Museum.
As a result of multiple historical and paranormal projects, Bruce founded
"Lost in Legend." The focus of his organization is to research and
promote the facts behind the folklore and the history behind the hauntings.
Often this creates new and increased interest in the legends they explore. This
has led to Bruce being sought as a speaker and lecturer and also as a
consultant on the area's legends, folklore, and paranormal residents.
An avid diver, Bruce often incorporates scuba diving into his research and book
projects. He is often involved in historical Maritime Archaeological projects
with the Maritime Research Division of the South Carolina Institute for
Archaeology and Anthropology as a volunteer diver. His projects can be followed
on Facebook at Lost in Legend.
