Paranormal group denied access to Hall of Languages

Paranormal Research and Investigations of North Texas (PRINT) is sensing a bad vibe coming from Texas A&M University– Commerce.

Chad Miller, co-founder of the PRINT organization, is attempting to bring his group of paranormal investigators to A&M– Commerce to investigate the Hall of Languages. However, he is encountering several obstacles.

"My overall experience with dealing with the university is that they are more than willing to spread around the rumors of hauntings and urban legends," Miller said. "But as soon as they find out that we are seriously interested in attempting to validate the claims, problems arise or contact ceases completely."

PRINT already had permission from Salvatore Attardo, head of the department of literature and languages, to conduct an investigation in the Hall of Languages but David McKenna, head of the facilities management department, put a halt to it.

"We were scheduled to do an overnight investigation of the Hall of Languages that was approved six months ago by the department head," Miller said. "McKenna finally called me the day before the investigation and stated that he refused to assist us unless we had the blessing of the president. We had to postpone it indefinitely."

McKenna could not be reached for comment. On the other hand, Dr. Dan Jones, president of A&M– Commerce, said he would look into the situation. Attardo felt the investigation was already secure.

"I was not aware of the maintenance department involvement," Attardo said. "I did approve the PRINT visit in the department, since a member of the group is part of the campus
police and was thus able to ensure security."

Miller does not see why the investigation of the Hall of Languages is turning into such a problem because PRINT is no stranger to the paranormal world. He has been in several newspapers, including The Dallas Morning News, and has appeared on several radio shows within the United States.

"I have been doing this for six years," Miller said. "I have two books published on the subject, I have a documentary crew that has been following PRINT for two years, and we are the only research group to be allowed to stay the night in Six Flags Over Texas to investigate."

Miller's life is not always centered on paranormal investigations.

"I'm writing, researching, working with the Texas Historical Commission in the RIP Guardian program by renovating and restoring forgotten cemeteries, networking with other groups around the world…and working for the Hunt County Sheriff's Department," he said.

Miller has high hopes for the Hall of Languages if PRINT is allowed to come to investigate.

"There have been standard claims by some really skeptical and professional individuals," he said. "From noises and doors opening and full-bodied apparitions."
