“Ghost Stories of El Paso” programs feature psychic Diana Calamia, also known as LadyD, touring sites in El Paso County in search of ghostly spirits. She communicates with the spirits she encounters, and relates their stories while being recorded on video and still cameras.
In “Ghost Stories of El Paso Volume Two,” LadyD talks with spirits in San Elizario, Monteleone’s Restaurant, a haunted building on Fort Bliss, and a mine shaft in the Franklin Mountains.
In “Ghost Stories of El Paso Volume Four,” LadyD tours the haunted buildings at the old Asarco smelter before they were demolished.
