Lorraine Warren, inspiration for the Conjuring franchise, has died aged 92

Alongside her husband, the paranormal investigator blazed a supernatural trail.

Lorraine Warren, one half of a world-famous paranormal investigation team, has passed away at the age of 92.

She and her husband Ed - who died in 2006 - provided the inspiration for Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson's characters in the highly successful Conjuring series.

Warren, pictured above in 2013 with Farmiga following the premiere of the original Conjuring film, popularised some of the leading supernatural stories that are still talked about to this day, including the Amityville and Annabelle hauntings.

On Friday (19 April), Warren's grandson Chris McKinnell posted on Facebook, announcing that the 92-year-old had died on Thursday.

"Last night my grandmother, Lorraine Warren, quietly and peacefully left us to join her beloved Ed," said McKinnell.

"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 honouring her beautiful soul. Remember to treasure those you love while you can. Thank you and God bless you all."
