IDENTIFIED? Candle Face's Victim #11: From Dismissal to Despair

January 31, 2024


I was contacted by someone who had seen my interview on January 11, 2024, on Beyond Believe Talk, a podcast hosted by Beyond Believe Paranormal Investigators. During this episode, I spoke about my childhood encounters with Candle Face and detailed interactions with the spirits of her victims. These spirits had been appearing to me at night, seeking help to locate their remains and to identify their murderers. The interview highlighted these haunting visits, despite a peculiar moment where a psychic humorously mischaracterized Candle Face as a candle with a face that is “happy.” Nonetheless, I’m thankful for the platform to share these spirits’ stories as they wished.


The anonymous email I received focused on a spirit I called Victim # 11 during the podcast, presenting a deeply troubling account of her experience. Read about Victim # 11 here. She had shared with me her tragic death at the hands of her boyfriend and his accomplices, a story of drugging, assault, rape, and murder, motivated by her disbelief in the Candle Face legend. The emailer suggested a startling connection between Victim # 11’s story and the real-life case of Roxanne Paltauf, who disappeared in July 2006 under similar circumstances.


The emailer provided a link to a KVUE article published on January 24, 2024, just two weeks after the spirit’s visit and the interview. The article does seem to align closely with the spirit’s account. Could the spirit and Roxanne be the same? Or could it be just a strange coincidence? The implications are profound, yet I know my role in this matter hasn’t ended. It’s crucial to cautiously approach such revelations, acknowledging the presumed innocence principle until proven guilty. This situation underscores the importance of thorough investigation beyond the spirit world’s claims. I urge my readers to engage in research but leave the pursuit of justice to the appropriate authorities, maintaining respect for the privacy and emotions of all involved.

Personal Note to My Readers


I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude to all of you who have supported my work, enabling me to serve as a bridge for those lost souls who yearn to share their stories from beyond the grave. Your belief in the unseen and the unheard has brought these voices to light, offering them a semblance of peace and recognition they have long been denied. However, I must emphasize the importance of caution and responsibility in interpreting the messages received from the spirit world. While the spirits’ accounts can provide us with leads and insights, they’re pieces of a much larger puzzle that requires careful and thorough investigation. We mustn’t take action based solely on the vague or incomplete information provided by the spirits. For example, if the spirit who visited me was Roxanne Paltauf, maybe she had another older boyfriend. The details shared from the other side could be inaccurate, misunderstood, or even misleading, as spirits themselves may not fully grasp their situation or may have their own agendas. Also, Candle Face may be involved, which could be another evil game of hers. I urge you to continue supporting these efforts with an open heart and a critical mind, leaving the pursuit of justice and the resolution of these cases to the professionals and authorities equipped to handle such matters. Let us honor the memories and the messages of those who have passed by advocating for truth and justice, but always within the bounds of the law and with respect for due process. Our role should be compassion, support, and advocacy, not vigilantism or recklessness. Together, we can make a difference, but let’s ensure it’s done the right way.
