Debby Constantino Shot Dead; Husband Mark Suspected for Murder

Tragedy Strikes the Paranormal Community

(Nevada)

A standoff with police ended tragically yesterday, as Debby Constantino was shot dead following a manhunt and the reported death of a male friend, Tuesday afternoon. A friend had dialed 9-11 to find that her male roommate in the 2300 block of Escalera Court in Reno had been shot to death, citing that Debby was also reported missing. 53-year-old Mark Constantino was found in the home of one of their adult children at Courtside Apartments with Debby in Sparks, after police had traced her cell phone to the area.

The standoff lasted from 8:00 AM until around 1:30 PM, as FBI negotiators and SWAT teams were called in. SWAT breached the apartment and where Debby’s body was found. Authorities say they believe that she was kidnapped to this location.

According to one local television station, the couple had a violent history.

In March of this year Debby Constantino was arrested at a home in north Reno. According to the records she and mark were fighting over money when she scratched him. It escalated and she allegedly sliced his arm with a kitchen knife. She was charged with domestic violence and battery with a deadly weapon. She was never able to have her day in court.’

“Then just six weeks ago, Mark along with their daughter Raquel, allegedly went to a home, pulled Debby out of a car by the neck and then dragged her inside. Documents accuse Raquel and Mark of beating Debby to the point of breaking her nose and causing bleeding. Records say Mark then strangled her., causing her to nearly pass out.’

“Raquel was charged with kidnapping, domestic battery, battery and vehicle burglary.’

“Mark was charged with kidnapping, domestic battery by strangulation and domestic battery.’

“We also heard from many of you on our social media sites asking why Mark Constantino was let out of jail after being accused of kidnapping Debby. In the court documents we obtained, it shows that kidnapping is usually a ‘no bail’ charge, but in this case both Mark and Raquel were granted bail by a local judge. Mark’s bail was set at $40,000, which was allowed to be paid by bond… and Raquel’s was set $30,000, also bondable.’

“Both Raquel and Mark were ordered to stay away from Debby Constantino.’

She had reportedly filed for a divorce just this month.

Most of you will remember both Debby and Mark from the hit television show Ghost Adventures. Debby was an alleged expert in the research of electronic voice phenomena, along with her estranged husband.

It is not known at this time whether or not their daughter Raquel is also a suspect.

The Editor has reached out to Sparks Police Department for further details, as it is also unknown at this time whether or not Mark Constantino was taken into custody or also found dead by suspected self-inflicted gunshot. According to reports, no shots were fired by police during the standoff.

Readers are urged to contact Sparks Police at (775) 353-2279 if you have any further information about the incidents which may have led up to the event. 

A few in the paranormal community have already published their attempts to contact Debby on the ‘other side’, only to be met with mixed emotions by fans in mourning upon learning this tragic news.

Plans for funeral arrangements have not yet been released.

    Of course nobody know behind closed doors people’s trues colors, therefore, we have no idea what is true and not. However, the more I watch Ghost Adventure and the guys the more I hear Zak’s comments on how often they get followed by entities of all kinds. How the three of them are being seriously affected to the point of not being able to keep girlfriends, I think it speaks volume! Because Debbie and Mark were also in the profession, one would think that “POSSESSION” should definitely not be ruled out. Most of the time, when an “evil’ entity follows you home, it will most likely follow and influence everyone involve with the person being hunted..As much as this profession has its rewards, it also has it’s price to pay and in this case, it has to resonate home for many in the business..
    Zak, Nick and Aaron, please be safe, we love you guys. Perhaps, GA could get some answers as to what happen with Debbie & Mark on the other side?
