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 tourist information centre tourist (Brit) n → Touristen-Informationszentrum nt , in Bayley Lane, city centre, and conducted supernatural experiments on 750 music lovers at London's Royal Festival Hall The Royal Festival Hall is a concert, dance and talks venue within Southbank Centre in London, England.
