‘Ghost Adventures’ star allegedly killed wife because she abused him.

The star of the Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures killed his wife, her boyfriend and himself after he had been abused by his spouse for years, it is claimed.

“Ghost Adventures” star Mark Constantino killed his co-star wife, her roommate and then himself after suffering from years of physical abuse at the hands of his petite spouse, authorities told The Post Tuesday.While police investigated the unknown man’s death, they also worked to find Debby who was eventually located at a home in Sparks, Nevada that belonged to her daughter, Raquel. — The investigation into the deaths of a ghost-hunting couple in Nevada has determined a male roommate of the woman was fatally shot in the head in a Reno home several hours before police found the paranormal investigators in a barricaded apartment.

Mark Constantino and his estranged wife Debby were tracked by police to a Reno residence on Tuesday after another unidentified man was found dead at Debby’s home. The Constantinos had a long history of domestic violence including 10 incidents in the past three years, with Debra acting as the primary aggressor in a majority of the incidents, according a police source. Police found Debby by tracking her cell phone and discovered that she was being held hostage by Mark Constantino in an apartment belonging to the couple’s daughter.

Debra and Mark Constantino had appeared on the Travel Channel’s series, “Ghost Adventures,” including episodes shot at the Mustang Ranch brothel near Reno. She had obtained a restraining order against her estranged husband just one week ago, and the two were scheduled to appear in court in December regarding their pending divorce. Then, in March 2015, the heavily made-up ghost hunter was busted again for domestic battery, but this time she used a grapefruit knife on her husband, whom she seemed in love with on the popular Travel Channel show, sources said. On screen, Mark and Debby Constantino were a team, a husband and wife with a shared passion, communicating with ghosts through EVP, which stands for electric voice phenomena. “When these kind of stories come up, the numbers of calls to our hotline goes up as people understand, that that could have been them,” said Mueschke. They were found dead Tuesday at their adult daughter’s apartment across town in Sparks after a two-hour standoff that ended when a SWAT team burst through the door to find their bodies.

A concerned neighbor called 911 after hearing loud screams coming from the home of the kooky couple, who are known for their theatrical conversation with the dead. And just last month, Debra filed for divorce after she claimed that Mark and their 23-year-old daughter ripped her out of a car, and then beat and strangled her, sources said. The reality stars were recurring characters on the show, which launched in 2008, and were considered experts in Electronic Voice Phenomenon, also known as EVPs.

When they arrived, police immediately heard gunshots and a man’s voice from inside the home screaming that “this is a hostage situation” and ordering them to “back off,” a source said. Janice Oberding said she became friends with the Constantinos while teaching a class on ghost hunting and spirituality at the Truckee Meadows Community College in 2012. Mueschke says victims are most at risk when they leave a violent relationship, and they should have a safety plan. “Think about what can happen if you left. She said she was shocked to learn of the killings. “We drifted apart and our friendship ended,” Oberding told the Reno Gazette-Journal. “But I know at one point she loved him very, very much and he loved her.” Rebecca Evans, 72, of Reno, said she worked as Debra Constantino’s life coach and spiritual guide for three years.
