Where to Find a Paranormal Investigator

By January 23, 2004

Follow me on:

Is your house haunted? Are you troubled by troublesome spirits? You don't know what to do? Perhaps a paranormal investigation team in your area can help or lend some advice. Here is a state-by-state (and Canada) listing of paranormal investigators. (And to ghostbusters out there: if I missed your team, let me know.)

I really would appreciate someone emailing me back, I have some pictures to send and need someone to tell me what they think… my friends and I went to Old Wade House in Greenbush wisconsin, known to be haunted, took 2 pictures above the church one right after another, the first one I took showed nothing, the second I took less then 10 seconds later, there was orbs and fog around the top of the church in the shape of what appears to be a skull…

My name is david dehmann, i am a savant diagnosed with aspergers syndrome. I would like to share an exclusive gift with the world. It is known as macro psycho kinesis, i prove this by means of demonstration. I place objects like marbles aluminum propellers in behind airtight glass sealed cage much like an aquarium, then begin to move and rotate the objects on command. i can even achieve this with the help of a portable lcd monitor and camera to move objects while in another room.. I have many references that can support the legitamacy of my claim like the mt.vernon police dept. at 740 393-9507 just ask about levi and from a doctor eric kaun at our local behavioral health clinic at 740 397-0442. they will be obliged to help you , and u want to reach me personally you can contact 740 397-5076 or email me. This is quite amazing stuff and the best thing is i can show others how to do this themselves, I also specialize in electronic on off switches which utilizes psychokinetic potential. Im truly out of this world ,but just see for your self, I live in mt.vernon ohio 43050 thank you and have a nice day

(17) Justin says:

I have a poltergeist in my home. According to Pat Fitzhugh’s artice on the 5 stages of a poltergeist, our poltergeist is currently at stage 4. It doesnt seem to be harmful, and I’m not terrified of it. Should I be concerned? We have heard footsteps down the hall, faint talking, knocks, invisible soft touching, shadow flying toward me, and the door softly moving back and forth in the closed position. Do all poltergeists evolve to stage 5? (Biting, slapping or punching people; animating objects; blood on walls, floors and ceilings, attacks by unseen forces, flying knives or sharp objects, heavy objects falling. Threatening writings or visual signs of danger; onset of unknown medical illness.)

Sonoran Paranormal Investigations (SPI) is a paranormal investigation group located in and serving the state of Arizona. We have members from Flagstaff to Tucson and we are able to meet the needs of families and businesses throughout the entire state.

In 2007, we were proud to become TAPS Family Members. Becoming involved with the TAPS Family not only ensures that we are doing the right thing – but it keeps us doing the right thing. The TAPS Family affiliation provides SPI and our clientele with access to some of the best and brightest in the field and ensures that we have access to the latest information and knowledge of the latest technology available.

Our unique approach to professional investigation has set SPI apart among investigative groups. We have been called in by homeowners and business owners but also by government agencies including historic sites, local and state government (including police), and the United States Army.

Truly Scientific

Sonoran Paranormal Investigations, Inc. dedicates itself not only to individual investigations of claims of paranormal activity but is also among the handful of groups worldwide utilizing data obtained during investigations as part of long term studies. SPI believes that only through studying phenomena over long periods will it be possible to eventually craft legitimate theories of haunting phenomena. After each investigation all results from experiments and environmental readings are retained and analyzed whether regarded as “paranormal” or natural. Over time this data analysis will enable SPI to form sound theories and explanations for haunting phenomena as well as show trends influencing paranormal activity or perceptions of paranormal activity. Likewise, such in depth analysis will allow SPI to show existing ideas on paranormal activity, generally handed down as anecdotes, as either valid or invalid based upon true scientific inquiry and stringent analysis.

Unlike many groups in the field, SPI does not adhere to an “investigate and forget” mindset, but rather an investigate, correlate, analyze, and theorize mindset making SPI true members of the scientific community rather than hobbyists.
