Lorraine Warren, a paranormal investigator whose work inspired The Conjuring franchise, has died. She was 92.
Warren and her husband Ed were involved in several huge paranormal cases throughout the years, including the “Amityville Horror” hauntings.
The Annabelle, Perron family and “Enfield Poltergeist” cases that Warren worked on were all depicted in the Conjuring films. Warren even made a cameo in the first film.
Also, Warren and Ed ran an Occult Museum that contained artifacts from their investigations. It is the oldest and only museum of its time. It was, at one time, open to the public and allowed horror fans to get a close look at haunted objects including the Annabelle doll.
In the Conjuring she was portrayed by Vera Farmiga. Warren’s husband Ed died back in 2006.
Warren’s family member made the announcement of her passing on Facebook.
“Last night my grandmother, Lorraine Warren, quietly and peacefully left us to join her beloved Ed,” the post reads. “She was happy and laughing until the very end. She was my angel and my hero, and she will be deeply missed. Please join us in celebrating her life and honoring her beautiful soul. Remember to treasure those you love while you can. Thank you and God bless you all.”
We send our love and thoughts to her family and loved ones.
The Conjuring franchise has inspired two films of the same name with a third on the way. Also, it includes the Annabelle series, which also contains three films. The film also has The Nun spinoff which currently has one movie with another on the way. The latest film The Curse of La Llorona just hit theaters, and it is also based in the universe.
