The Washoe Club in Virginia City, Nevada, is a popular paranormal tourist attraction to many, but to Zak Bagans and the rest of the 'Ghost Adventures' crew, it's a place that holds a lot of emotional value.

The team — Aaron Goodwin, Jay Wasley, and Billy Tolley and Zak — had investigated the old haunt with paranormal investigator couple Mark and Debby Constantino, who died in a mysterious murder-suicide that killed three people. While revisiting the investigation with the team in the latest episode of 'Ghost Adventures: Screaming Room', Zak is moved to tears. 

Mark and Debby were well known in the ghost hunting circuit and were known as the experts of Electronic Voice Phenomena. They appeared in multiple episodes of the show between 2008 and 2011 and died in 2015. According to reports, Debby's roommate had come home to find her missing and a third roommate dead in their home in Reno, Washoe County. She immediately called the police and they found that Debby's phone was in Sparks.

The police were shot by an unidentified man who was later identified as her husband Mark. He had been holding her hostage. The situation escalated after he told the police to "give me 15 minutes to gather my thoughts or I’ll kill her!" He eventually did, and when SWAT blasted their way into the apartment she was being held at, they found the two dead from gunshot wounds. The couple had a history of domestic violence - Mark had previously tried to strangle her and she had charges of domestic violence and battery with a deadly weapon after she cut Mark's hand. 

The couple on camera was very different from the reality was, clearly. In the investigation after their death at Washoe, the team believes that Debbie had tried to contact them, throwing in quarters and communicating through the spirit box.
