Ryan Buell Arrested

On August 25, Buell was arrested in Pennsylvania by the State College Police Department and charged with two third degree felonies and a first degree misdemeanor, for Theft of Leased Property, Receiving Stolen Property, and Theft of Services. After posting bail, Buell later fled to South Carolina where he was arrested on a warrant and is awaiting extradition back to Pennsylvania.


Yesterday, Buell’s mother made a plea to his fans to stop helping him. Shelly Bonavita Lundberg wrote an open letter to the “Paranormal State” star’s fans on Facebook asking them not to send her son money.


It is unclear at this time if Buell is fighting extradition from South Carolina back to Pennsylvania. Buell can sit up to 30 to 90 days in jail on the detainer depending if he signs the extradition waiver or not.

  5. Sad. I loved this show and enjoyed watching him. His mom sounds genuinely concerned. God Bless her,him and their entire family.

  6. karma at last,after conning all those fans !!

  7. I knew it…. I actually told him he had two ghosts around him. I said you have a nervous smile like you are hiding something…

  8. I met Ryan in 2008 at the first field trip he had in Long Island. My daughter and I loved his shows and watched them all…it is so sad to have been watching him go down hill over the past several years, I do hope he can pull himself out of this mess he has gotten himself into. Prayers being sent for him.

      It was all fake they got introuble and show was taken off air real ppl needed help and he told everyone he lies for money

  9. FPOS!

  10. He looks horrid for a very long time now and I’m aware of his illness. Something may have attached itself to him during one of his paranormal investigations. I’m a strong believer you dance with the devil he will answer your prayers.

  11. I’m wondering if he is still suffering from pancreatic cancer?

    I’m so sorry to hear about Ryan’s trouble. I hope it all get a worked out and Ryan can get help if need be.

  13. but why do they say ‘ghost hunting arrest?’ his arrest has NOTHING to do with ghosthunting – it has ALL to do with his illegal activities. Ghost hunting is NOT illegal.

  14. I’m sorry to hear this.I do believe you can get attachments from doing this kind of work,yet your still in charge of what ultimately happens.I sincerely pray for him.Dont judge lest you yourself be judged ,he truely has his own demons to conquer.Not one of you can say you have conquered your own Vice’s. Please Lord, look out for Ryan.

  15. By his picture his eyes look so haunted. I send forth a prayer. ” I raise my hand to you Oh Lord to give this man a blessing of peace he greatly deserves. He worked to help so many in the past. Now he is in need of your help. May the darkness that has attached itself to his soul be cleansed and removed. This I pray in his name to the father, the son, and the Holy Spirit. AMEN”

  16. Please Ryan get help I been crying on n off today seeing this about you its so sad it brakeing my heart to see you hurting like this or what ever your going throw as I been a big fan of your for a long time now I have the biggest cruch on you you just don’t look the same aanymor as a true fan please please get the help you need…
    Love Natasha

  17. His face is not the same face that caught my
    Attention! I don’t see anything behind his eyes except evil. I can not believe that this is Ryan. I know we are all human and we all make mistakes but I am asking myself if he possessed if an actual demon is walking around as Ryan or if evil is in some way guiding him to act out like a puppet. Ryan will never get the help he really needs if that in fact is the case. The state would only laugh if you brought his to there attention, maybe even throw him in a crazy house. I wish we cooks prove without reasonable doubt that the devil is real and life does go on after death. I would like to take half of the justice system on a real ghost hunt see if half of them would still laugh at what could actually be happining instead of what that believe to have happened and why. Have Lorraine Warren go visit him and see what she has to say!!! Good luck to Ryan and his whole family, I will be praying for you all and for God to place his has upon Ryan.

  18. Chickens have come home to roost. Even after lying about his supposed cancer (something that is totally inexcusable) people still are praying and worrying about him. Get a grip.

  19. Sorry he is going thru a hard time praying for him and your family i watched the show all the time hope he gets better 😞

  20. I think he’s an addict.. A demon all its own.

  21. there’s a lot of places u can get help. please do. u deserve better in life.

  22. Prayers for Ryan
    God protect him,….
    From what ever has attracted to him..
    God only you can help him..
    Fight the demons.
    Keep him safe god.
    Give his loved oned strength & unity to get threw this.
    In Christ Jesus Name Amen

  23. Some of Ryan’s fans may not know that Ryan is an accomplished singer, songwriter and bass guitarist. He wrote his first song when he was 13, “Shadow Man”, inspired by a spirit that would visit Ryan at night. Ryan’s other songs include, “Feel My Apple”, “Attic Buds”, “Listen To My Throat”, “Helen Of Needle Park”, “Slabsided Jesus”, “Coldstill”, “Louise, Oh Please” and “The Amityville Whore” a song inspired by the paranormal fraud Elaine Warren.

    Sadly, Ryan wasn’t successful with his songs and decided to create a bogus ghost hunting squad while in college.

    Ryan has been quite a hit with his fellow inmates in prison. Ryan and four other inmates have a house band called “Mothman.” Ryan wrote a new song while in prison called, “Blood In My Urine.” This song was inspired by Ryan’s kidney dysfunction due to his heroine and meth addiction.

    Ryan appears quite upbeat since he’s been clean and sober, and he’s been a model prisoner. Being back in a rock band has been very therapeutic for Ryan and he say’s that he plans to be very serious about his musical career after his sentence is up in 2030. He said in an interview, “If McCartney and Mick Jagger are still popular as old men, so can I.”

    We wish Ryan our best and hope his dreams become a reality after prison life.
