2021 and new directions for GRI….

I have been away from Paranormal work for quite some time. Family illness and issues have been the main problem and things, for now, are stable enough I can peek my head out to look at where we go next with GRI.

A big development has been the return to broadcasting with SoulStreamRadio, now hosted on Twitch. We are broadcasting, for the time being, weekly on Saturdays at 9 to 11 PM Pacific time / 12 – 2 AM Eastern (Sunday morning on the eastern time zone).  Our plan is to eventually reach a 4-day per week broadcast schedule. We will be having guests from around the the United States and elsewhere on the program and be taking callers on-air.

The show is Paranormally themed and is going to be a lot of fun for both myself and the audience.

We will likely return to local investigations with GRI and feature some of our work on SoulStreamRadio. It takes time and effort to run a Paranormal team, so we have our work cut out for us.

More to come as things develop.

2018 Cases

We are scheduling our first 2018 gathering to go over the selected cases for this year. As many of you know, we do not often do investigations for clients, but instead concentrate our efforts on visiting historical sites, unusual haunts and cases which have achieved attention that we might be able to shed new light on, such as accident cases, missing persons, unusual paranormal sightings and more.

We are also scheduling training missions and will post these soon for interested parties to join if they wish to see us in action.

Without getting into too much detail, we are going to be testing new types of gear and taking our skill sets as a team to places we’ve never been. Our goal this year is to develop new technical and procedural capabilities to bring to our investigative suite.

Our cases will thus be pushed into new areas that we feel will push the boundaries of the technology we use and will see us in environments that you normally wouldn’t expect investigations to be done in.

We will soon post a schedule of our public cases and also summaries and case reports plus evidence collected as the year progresses. Get ready for a fun 2018 season! And Happy New Year!

Investigating underwater wrecks, EVPs and new technology…

The Edmund Fitzgerald – Greenmars [CC BY-SA 3.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0)], via Wikimedia Commons
I recently came across mention of the 728 foot long Edmund Fitzgerald, a huge freighter ship that sank on November 10, 1975 in the largest storm ever seen on Lake Superior. The ship had twenty nine men aboard and all lost their lives when the ship suddenly experienced a catastrophic failure (likely from taking on too much water in extremely high seas) that took her under and split the ship into two pieces and left only floating debris and an oil slick as the only evidence of the accident.

In 2012, the first body of a crewman was unexpectedly found by an expedition that used submersibles to explore the wreck. The body was found outside of the ship and evoked great emotion on the part of those who found it as well as the surviving family members of the Edmund Fitzgerald crew members. It was a sad reminder of how quickly these men perished and how Nature and Spirit will remind us of such tragedies with reminders years after the event has occurred.

The discovery of this man’s body, so many years after he passed, got me to thinking if these sorts of wrecks are haunted and can provide clues as to their passing with EVP investigations of them.

I have long held to my own theory that EVPs may offer insight into accidents, criminal acts and unexplained passing or disappearances of people. I believe that this should be an area that we focus investigative work to try to give clues and insights into such cases that otherwise would NOT be solved.

I’ve seen evidence of EVPs showing up in all manner of television and YouTube videos with the people filming the clips never realizing what they captured and I suspect that spirits would gravitate to and communicate with this side to a recorder or video lowered into the site of their passing.

The question is thus: Will they record to a microphone at depth or to a recorder lowered to the sea floor? I want to test this theory with both a hydrophone and a sealed enclosure to send down a recorder to see what we get.

In 2018 I would like to find an underwater wreck to investigate somewhere in my travel area  to test this theory. The idea is to lower a sealed microphone (hydrophone) or EVP recorder to the bottom to record EVPs at an actual wreck to see what we get. My expectation is that we WILL get EVPs and lots of them. The key is to send equipment into places where paranormal researchers could never go safely and using low-cost electronics adapted to those environments to get the evidence for us. As such, I have a lot of equipment to be working on this winter to get ready for the Spring and Summer paranormal hunting season.

The question is now to find someone with a boat, ROV gear and the willingness to work with a paranormal team to try some new types of investigation work.

We’ve identified several sites of interest for this and a number of other missions for the 2018 season. More to come soon!


National Paranormal Experience Reporting Center

While there are plenty of web sites that allow people to report UFOs, there are few that will allow for a central place to report paranormal experiences.

Having led my own paranormal team since 2008, I learned a lot and realized recently that there was no centralized reporting system to allow people to report cases of paranormal events.

So,  I went ahead and set this site up at http://www.nperc.org to allow anyone to report their event so that others might learn from these phenomena. Please visit the site and share your experience with us so that other paranormal investigators and ordinary people can learn from these events.
