Our group was contacted by Tracy to help her with a tours she was holding in Galveston Texas at the Stewart Mansion. We found out that she did not have signed notarized permission from the property owner like she claimed and we had been tresspassing onto the property.

She claimed the owner lived in the UK, Mexico, Saudia Arabia and other places but in fact lives in Houston. She claimed the permission form was on file at the police station and in fact had the police department fooled.

She claimed to work for the Galveston Historic Foundation and had been raising money for the properties at Risk. We were to help her to raise these funds for them. She did not in fact work for them, she was not on the board, she was not the chairperson for the board and had no rights to any properties in Galveston.

She is falsely now claiming that there was a dead body found at the property and that is why she had to cancel the remaining tours. There was no body, it was not cordoned off and was not quarrentined. She was stopped by the caretaker.

Her regular ghost tour in Galveston is full of lies on the history. You can verify all the stories through the Galveston Historic Foundation yourself. The Island has a rich history that does not need to be embellished. The Normandy Inn is not what she claims at all! It was a boarding house for sailors

The Galveston Historic Foundation did not recieve the thousands of dollars she raised over 5 months worth of collecting. The womens crisis center does not know who she is however she is collecting non perishable goods for them as well as the food pantry and toys for tots. 

Beware!!! There are tours you can take that the history and the business is real. If you give her your money for an overnight tour you are most likely breaking and enetering. Why would you give your money to a con artist?

#2 Consumer Comment

PM investigations ,Houston Ghosts, response to allegations of composing initial report as well as our encounters with Texas Ghost Tours Tracy

AUTHOR: PM investigations (Houston Ghosts) - (United States of America)

We are a small Houston-area based paranormal team that was contacted by Tracy Richardson (Coulter,Simpson) on Oct. 5th via Facebook. We sent comments back and forth and on Oct. 7th we recieved a voicemail from Tracy offering us access to Stewart Mansion on Galveston Island for an overnight investigation. We booked the night of November 17th and had an initial group of 20 (which shrank down 15) set to go for $60 per person.

As the date drew near Tracy contacted us on Nov. 8th and asked if we were willing to go down to Galveston the next night and help her with her tour by providing technical and equipment know how and tips on ghost hunting to the tour participants.

As we were getting in the vehicle to leave on Friday Nov. 9th we recieved a call from Tracy who was calling to tell us that the tour had been cancelled. When we asked as to the reason why she told us that there was a body found two days before on the property with a gunshot wound. She went on to say that the property had been cordoned off and quarentined by the police and that we may not be able to go on the 17th as scheduled.

On Nov. 13th we recieved a call from a person, who we shall call "Jane", claiming to have done research on some of the claims that Tracy has made about Stewart Mansion and it's property owners. Tracy told us that the owner lived in South America and was getting ready to demolish the mansion in order to build a teens night club within a year. After the "body" was found she told us that the demolition had been moved up to Dec. 15th by the owner.

"Jane" had found that the mansion, as well as the restaraunt adjacent, was owned by a couple who also own a real estate company based in Houston. After calling the owner she found out that Tracy had lied about the mansion being demolished and having legal access. The owner went on to say that they have evidence that Tracy has been cutting locks and possibly tearing down "no trespassing" signs on the property.

After learning this we called the Galveston Police Department to find out if a body had indeed been found on the property. The head of the homicide division stated that no body had been found on the island in the last week. We then called the Galveston Historical Foundation that Tracy claimed to be the chairman of the board on.( initially she said she just volunteered with them)

Jamie, who answers the phones at the GHF, told us that Tracy was not affiliated with them anymore after briefly doing some work with them. Tracy told us that 100% of the procedes went to the GHF to try and buy the mansion from the owner. Other people we have talked to have claimed that Tracy told them that 50% of the proceeds went to the GHF.

On Nov. 21st, Tracy called us wanting to know if it was us who posted a report about her on this site the day before.We confronted her with some of the details that we have learned that seem very incriminating and now she is claiming that we were responsible for the report. 

WE DID NOT MAKE THE INITIAL REPORT!!!!!

We will not stand for this con artist besmirching our hard earned reputation!

P.S When we file a report on someone, we put our name at the top!!!
