‘Ghost Adventures’ Couple, Mark and Debby Constantino, Dead After Standoff.

The bodies of Mark and Debby Constantino were discovered barricaded inside their adult daughter’s apartment in Sparks just hours after the killing of Constantino’s roommate in Reno. The Sparks Police Department identified Mark Constantino and his estranged wife Debby Constantino — who appeared on the Travel Channel’s “Ghost Adventures” series — as the victims in Tuesday afternoon’s incident in Sparks.Paranormal investigators and , and a third unidentified man, were killed on Tuesday, Sept. 22, in Sparks, Nevada, in what appears to be a domestic violence incident turned deadly. Deputy Chief Tom Robinson, a Reno police officer, told the Reno-Gazette Journal that the suspect told police: “Give me 15 minutes to gather my thoughts or I’ll kill her.” The unidentified man was believed to have been found by a woman he lived with. Zak Bagans, host of Ghost Adventures, called it a “dark day” while a friend of Debby Constantino posted from the couple’s Twitter account urging people to speak out against domestic abuse.

The couple, who were electronic voice phenomena (EVP) experts, have had numerous recent run-ins with the law due to domestic violence complaints, KTVN also reports. On Tuesday, in a tragedy as horrific as any the couple investigated, Mark allegedly killed Debby, another man and himself as the chaotic personal life of the estranged couple unraveled. “They were rock stars,” Jeadene Solberg, the founder of the Northern Nevada Ghost Hunters, told Northern Nevada’s KOLO 8. “If you talk to anybody who is coming into the paranormal, who’ve seen the TV shows, they’ll ask: ‘Do you know the Constantinos? While police have not officially released the cause of death, the couple had a long history of domestic violence, and this wasn’t the first time that Mark Constantino had allegedly kidnapped his soon-to-be ex-wife (the divorce papers were not yet finalized). In August, Mark was charged with kidnapping, domestic battery by strangulation, and domestic battery against Debby, after which she obtained a restraining order against him. Have you worked with them?’” “This photo and the next are of me in 1989 in our second apartment in Wayne N.J.,” Debby wrote on the couple’s Web site. “By far the darkest place we have ever lived.

Fans and former colleagues have flocked to the page to pay tribute to the couple they describe as “the nicest people,” and to share memories of ghost hunting with them. She also feels she vibrates on a level to glimpse into the nature realm. … Mark grew up with a strong belief in the Afterlife, but never experienced anything until he met Debby.” “We have been blessed enough to have traveled and investigated some of the most haunted locations in the country with some of the most prominent people in the field,” the Constantinos wrote. “Over the past several years we have been channeling most of our time and effort into receiving EVP on a consistent basis.” “There are a lot of people out there doing paranormal shows,” Debby said in 2008. “They’re a dime a dozen now. They were accused of strangling her and breaking her nose, and protection orders were issued — an incident that perhaps led the couple to file for divorce on Sept. 10. William Rulle of the Reno police said. “This female is also … a victim, a couple of months ago, of a kidnapping.” Pinging the Constantinos’ cellphones led police to an apartment complex in nearby Sparks, Nev. There, near Sparks High School at his daughter Raquel’s apartment, police said Mark staged a dramatic standoff, firing his gun when they attempted to enter.
