Pioneering ghost hunter Vic dies.
WARWICKSHIRE'S very own 'ghostbuster' died suddenly at the weekend.
Vic Tandy, aged 50, was a senior lecturer at Coventry University's Business School but his real passion was searching out spooks.
Vic, along with his Coventry University colleague Tony Lawrence, worked on pioneering ghost theories, the most famous being 'infrasound'.
He identified 'infrasound' as the low frequency noise just out of the range of human hearing, which causes a reaction in people that some interpret as a supernatural experience.
Vic also wrote a computer column for the Evening Telegraph.
He did some of his research in the cellar under Coventry Tourist Information Centre, in Bayley Lane, city centre, and conducted supernatural experiments on 750 music lovers at London's Royal Festival Hall.
Last year, Vic's team of ghost hunters carried out the first official paranormal investigation at Warwick Castle.
David Noon, Dean of Coventry University's Business School, said: "Our sympathies go out to the Tandy family at this difficult time. Vic was a dedicated member of staff who was committed to his research and his students. He will be sadly missed by all of his colleagues at Coventry University."
The well-respected chartered engineer lived in Warwick with his wife Lynne and his 23-year-old son Paul.
Vic, along with his father and son, constructed a fully working prize- winning mechanical circus which appeared at the Town and Country Festival.
Vic's funeral will take place at Oakley Wood Crematorium on Wednesday at 2pm.
