I've been a ghost hunter since 1977. I don't know who
first put 2 plus 2 together on EMF in haunted places. 
Ever since houses began to be wired for electricity in
the late 1800's and electrical and battery powered
appliances and devices were developed, people have
reported ghosts manipulating them.  In the mid 1800's,
those who studied the paranormal (largely from the
Spiritualism perspective) referred to spirits/ghosts
as energy, but the context of the reference does not
indicate they thought it was electromagnetic energy. 
In the 1930's into the 1970's, it was known among
investigators that spirits/ghosts could manipulate
electrical devices (the classic light bulb burning
intensely bright, radio playing when not plugged in,
etc).  It was not until the early 1980's that ghost
hunters started to ask if spirits/ghosts were a form
of electromagnetic energy.  In the early 1990's EMF
detectors and negative ion detectors started to become
standard equipment for investigations.  In the mid
1990's thermal detectors for identifying cold spots
generated by the EMF became standard.  Who knows what
the 2000's will bring us in the ways of new

I don't believe it was one single investigator, but
several right about the same time who came up with the
idea of looking for EMF in haunted places.
