Matt White was a character in Grave Encounters. Known among the team as a savvy technician, Matt is seen along with Lance Preston, T.C. Gibson, Houston Grey, and Sasha Parker utilizing the technology at their disposal to capture paranormal activity. In the unfortunate events following their investigation, he ended up the first in the team to succumb to the same insanity endured by Collingwood Hospital Patients of the past and ended his own life.


Matt served as the surveillance operator among the Grave Encounters team in the show, establishing systems to facilitate the capturing of supernatural anomalies within the Collingwood Psychiatric Hospital. These systems consisted of:

  • 10 static cameras set up around choice areas throughout the hospital in which paranormal activity were more prevalent; the recordings are also stored into a backup hard drive and synced to Matt's main computer.
  • An EMF (ElectroMagnetic Field) Meter built to sense electrostatic and electromagnetic fields produced respectively by natural or ghostly activity.
  • An infrared thermometer to detect temperature fluctuations, specifically the presence of cold spots produced by apparitions.
  • An EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) capable of capturing sounds imperceptible to the human ear.

He was always good at organizing and placing cameras around haunted buildings and as well being the show's equipment expert for ghosts. While he was surrounding the cameras to leave with the others he heard a loud noise made by a ghost. At first, he thought it was one of his teammates but when he got to the point where the ghost made the noise he just disappeared without making any noises. Then the group started searching for him until they found him in a room where he was sitting down. When they found him he started acting weirdly and when somebody was getting haunted or killed by a ghost he was laughing which means the ghosts got him and sent him to Dr. Friedkin to do labotomy on his brain like on Lance. Later when Sasha and Lance try to stop a ghoul-zombie like creature that tries get into the room with the elevator. At the place where there is no elevator Matt laughs a few times and sees his friends trying to protect him and Matt maybe gives up on his life and jumps and dies from a great height which means he did suicide because he couldn't stand it anymore or maybe because he was possessed by the spirits of the hospital.
