Devoting more than 21 years of active service to the New York City Police Department, retired homicide detective Steve DiSchiavi now lends his expertise to Travel Channel’s series, “The Dead Files.” Based on the premise that every property has a story to be told, DiSchiavi combines his skills alongside medium Amy Allan, to solve unexplained paranormal phenomena in haunted locations across America.
In “The Dead Files,” DiSchiavi relies on his police training and experience to explore the facts behind each property – questioning the owners about the building’s history, interviewing local historians and experts, and tracking down any previous owners of the property in question. When DiSchiavi and Allan come together at the end to share their findings with each homeowner, the parallels between their discoveries are powerfully revealed in each shocking conclusion.
Following his retirement from the NYPD, DiSchiavi worked as a Senior Investigator of Merrill Lynch’s Fraud Department as well as a Special Investigator for the city of New York. He runs his own private investigating company in Florida and is also a licensed Armed Guard.
DiSchiavi currently resides in Florida.
