Malinka Franklin - Investigator
Malinka Franklin joined R.I.P. as an Investigator in 2010. Having had paranormal experiences throughout her life, she is drawn to learning as much as possible about this field. She grew up in a haunted house where the unexplained became "normal." Many years ago, she also experienced the unpleasant presence of a hostile spirit or entity which wreaked havoc in her life for several months. That experience left her fearful of the paranormal; however, circumstances continued to lead her back to encounters with the spirit world. She enjoys investigating with RIP and discovering new ways to communicate with ghosts. Malinka has loved animals all her life, particularly horses. She has shown her Arabian horse, Timothy, in English pleasure, Western pleasure, Western performance, and trail. Malinka has worked as an administrative assistant, office manager, and budget analyst. As an advocate of holistic healing, she is certified in canine and equine massage and also in Reiki Level II. Malinka grew up and still lives in southern Maryland with her husband, horses, and a variety of other critters.
