The 2012 Las Vegas Paracon doesn’t start until August 31st, but Elite Vegas Paranormal is hard at work lining up outstanding guest speakers and vendors for this event.

CFM wanted to bring you closer to some of the guests you can expect to see at Bonnie Springs Ranch this August.  The featured guest speaker for the event will be none other than “Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files” star Ben Hansen.

Ben Hansen

A former FBI Agent, Ben set up the investigation team on “Fact or Faked” to learn the truth about the paranormal. Early in his youth, Ben developed a fascination with UFOs and secret government projects. Ben has been looking for the real-life X-Files since he was a child and decided he would dedicate his career to investigations. After obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Utah in Sociology and Criminology, he went to work for the State of Utah on a county SVU task force. His training and skills later brought him to work as a criminal investigator for the FBI. Although he never found the X-Files, his time serving at the state and federal levels gave him over 6 years of formal experience in investigating a wide range of crimes and national security details. He works as a Systems Analyst for a non-profit group when he’s not investigating cases.

Hansen, a noted paranormal speaker, is a great addition to the 2012 Las Vegas Paracon and will be a big draw for this event.  If you still haven’t gotten your tickets, head over to For more information on the event, check out their facebook page at
