Lorraine Warren, paranormal investigator and demonologist whose life inspired franchises like "The Conjuring" and "The Amityville Horror", has died.

Her grandson, Chris McKinnell, said she died Thursday night in her home.

"It is with deep sadness that I must announce that Lorraine Warren has passed away", Spera wrote.

Lorraine and Ed Warren's investigation into the Amityville, New York, murders served as the basis of "The Amityville Horror" movies and, more recently, "The Conjuring" series.

Lorraine, a self-described "trance medium", and Ed, who died in 2006, founded NESPR to investigate supernatural phenomena.

'My dear friend Lorraine Warren has passed.

The actress Vera Farmiga played Warren in the Conjuring and Annabelle films, with the latest, "Annabelle Comes Home", set for release this summer. May Mrs. Warren rest in peace, and may her values live on through the remembrance of her life's work and her impact on the people she helped.

'She was my angel and my hero, and she will be deeply missed. Farmiga expressed her condolences on Twitter Friday, saying she was "blessed to have known" Warren and "honored to portray her".
