The bodies of two Nevada ghost hunters who appeared on “Ghost Adventures” were found by police after they stormed a Sparks apartment after an hours-long standoff.
A SWAT team on Tuesday responded to a hostage situation and found the bodies of Mark and Debra Constantino when officers stormed their adult daughter’s apartment near Sparks High School at 1100 15th St., the Associated Press reported.
Police said this happened after another man was found dead about 6:30 a.m. in a Reno home where Debra Constantino and another woman were living. Officials didn’t say how the three died, but said the incidents were “directly related.”
Police said Mark Constantino shot at officers approaching the apartment door but they did not return fire. The AP reported the suspect told police, “Give me 15 minutes to gather my thoughts, or I’ll kill her.”
Police used an explosive to open the door. An officer was taken to the hospital after he was hurt by broken glass.
KOLO-TV reported Constantino was the subject of an August domestic violence investigation that involved kidnapping and battery in Reno.
The couple filed for divorce earlier this month. Debra Constantino filed a restraining order against her husband last week.
The pair, who led paranormal conferences and hosted spirit-speak.com, were featured in the Travel Channel series “Ghost Adventures” for episodes shot at the Goldfield Hotel in Goldfield, Nev., the Mustang Ranch brothel east of Reno and a theater in San Francisco.
