Devoting more than 21 years of active service to the New York City Police Department, retired Homicide Detective Steve DiSchiavi is now lending his expertise to a new Travel Channel series, The Dead Files. Based on the powerful premise that every property has a story to be told, Steve, alongside physical medium, Amy Allan, combine their unique skills to solve unexplained paranormal phenomena in haunted locations across America.
In the series, Steve relies on his police training and experience to explore each property, questioning the owners about the building's past before gathering more facts from local historians, police investigators and by tracking down past owners of the property. When the two investigators come together to share their findings, the parallels between their discoveries are powerfully revealed.
Following his retirement from the NYPD, Steve worked as a Senior Investigator of Merrill Lynch’s Fraud Department. Steve is currently a Special Investigator for the city of New York and is a licensed New York State Private Investigator and a licensed Armed Guard. He also owns his own Private Investigation Company, Paragon Investigations.
Steve was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and currently resides on Staten Island with his wife and daughter.
