Sam Baltrusis is a freelance writer for various publications including Boston Spirit magazine and is the author of the recent book “Ghosts of Salem.”
 Sam Baltrusis has lived what some may call, a haunted life. From a very young age, Sam realized that he had the gift of being able to hear and sometimes see the other side. Ghosts, spirits and the undead were just another part of everyday life for Sam. Then one night after giving a historical performance in Salem, Sam found himself closer to the spirit world than he ever thought possible. Sam discovered that he had taken on the attachment of an angry spirit, who nearly killed him. This is the haunted story of Sam Baltrusis and his experiences with the dead. PART 2 - AVAILABLE TO GRAVE KEEPERS ONLY - LISTEN HERE In part two of our interview, available only to Grave Keepers, we discuss: What does it feel like for Sam when a spirit conveys information from the dead to the living? What kind of dark entity branded the number 8 on Sam’s chest? What happened when Sam was giving a performance about a murder victim in Salem late one night? When Sam realize something was “attached” to him and how long was it there? How did Sam find a way to remove the “attached” spirit to him? Is there anything Sam does now to defend himself from spiritual attachments? Did Sam experience a “possession”, or was it something else?
