Lorraine and her husband Ed were considered “America’s preeminent experts on the subject of spirits and demonology” for more than half a century
World famous paranormal investigator and demonologist Lorraine Warren died aged 92 at her home in Connecticut on Thursday night.
Lorraine and her husband Ed were considered “America’s preeminent experts on the subject of spirits and demonology” for more than half a century. Lorraine joins her husband Ed who passed away in 2006. The couple gained world-wide recognition for their profession, especially through the film adaptations of their noted cases like the “Amityville Horror” and “Enfield Poltergeist” hauntings.
James Wan’s ‘The Conjuring’ series of films were also based on the couple’s famous case files, carving their careers into the world of popular culture. ‘The Conjuring’ and ‘Annabelle’ series starred Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, who play the couple on screen. All of ‘The Conjuring’ movies are loosely based on actual cases taken up by the Warrens while ‘Annabelle’ is centered around an allegedly haunted Anne doll at the couple’s famous ‘Occult Museum’. The original doll still resides at the Occult Museum in Monroe, Connecticut.
In a Facebook post, Lorraine’s son-in-law wrote: “Lorraine touched many lives and was loved by so many. She was a remarkable, loving, compassionate and giving soul. To quote Will Rogers, ‘she never met a person she didn’t like’.”
In another post, family member Chris McKinnell wrote: “Last night my grandmother, Lorraine Warren, quietly and peacefully left us to join her beloved Ed. She was happy and laughing until the very end. She was my angel and my hero, and she will be deeply missed.”
“Please join us in celebrating her life and honoring her beautiful soul. Remember to treasure those you love while you can. Thank you and God bless you all,” he added.
A third film in ‘The Conjuring’ series is in the works and slated to release in September 2020.
