They knew it would not be easy. They suspected that it might be dangerous. But what they probably did not expect was to lose their lives hunting the wet t-shirt ghosts of old Cancún.
When Dr. Randolf Droidletaum heard the phone ring on what was a blustery Monday evening this past April 3rd in his Twickenham townhouse, he claims a shiver went down his spine.
‘I knew immediately that the call was about them, that something had happened,’ he told The Gorko in a phone interview. ‘They were in over their heads with the wet t-shirt business, I told them they were, but they insisted on taking their cameras and heat sensors and going after them. They wanted to make a name for themselves in the world of paranormal investigation.’
Dr. Droidletaum, the founder of S.P.O.O.K. and Britain’s foremost researcher on paranormal phenomenon, said, ‘I feel as though I sent them to their deaths.’
The bodies of the five hunters were discovered in a dry arroyo outside of Hacienda Real on the outskirts of Cancún, necks twisted into unnatural bow-ties.
Dr. Droitletaum confirmed that the youths had been investigating an abandoned waterslide where there had been reports of mysterious, drunken shrieks and the rattling of mardi gras beads.
