Paranormal Investigator

Television Personality/Lecturer/Fixer

Co-Founder/Owner of TWC

Steven "Doogie" McDougal has had many ventures in the paranormal with 20 plus years as an investigator and Lecturer in the paranormal. Doogie is best known as Co-Founder/Owner of the Tennessee Wraith Chasers as seen on Destination America and "Travel Channel's Haunted Live, Most Haunted Towns, Haunted Towns, Ghost Asylum, Ghostland Tennessee, Exorcism Live, and Paranormal Challenge.


"Doogie" was raised in a historic, and some say haunted, area of Tennessee known as "The Big South Tunnel" (his interest in the paranormal started at a young age) when his Grandmother started telling him about the experiences at her home after his grandfather had passed away. She told of dark finger like shadows coming down from her ceiling at night while she was trying to sleep along with the disembodied voices that were talking to her as well. The family thought it was just her being afraid living by herself, but Doogie listened to her stories and realized this was far from a fear of living alone. Doogie's grandmother got sick later that year and was put in a nursing home where she said she no longer experienced the same happenings as she did at her home. This was the point Doogie took action and investigated her home. Doogie's experience was just like she had described. The shadow people and also the disembodied voices. This made it very personal to Doogie after his grandmother passed away not long after his discovery of the paranormal activity in her home. It's his life's mission to try and help others, like his grandmother, so that they don't have to live in constant fear of the other side. 


As an investigator for over 20 years, Doogie has determination and high energy with a unique awareness and a knack for finding new & interesting haunted locations. He hopes to help others like himself with unanswered questions about the unexplained. Doogie has labeled the residence he shares with his wife and son as haunted. Living in a home with this type of activity influenced him even more to study the paranormal and investigate unexplained phenomenon all over the United States. Doogie's number one desire is to find the truth behind the unexplained, whether it be paranormal or not, to calm the fears of others and strengthen his knowledge in the field. His greatest fear is that the answers he may find might not be the answers he seeks.
