Name: Michelle J
Title: Lead Investigator
Quote: "It's not an 'ORB' it's bloody dust!"
Parabio: Michelle grew up in an old part of town, toast could be smelled cooking every Wednesday at 3am and when going up into the attic to find something out of storage, the batteries in the torch would drain rapidly. It got so costly to keep replacing torch batteries, the family started to use paraffin lamps for any excursions into the attic.
Name: Adam S
Title: Second Investigator
Quote: "Pass me the EMF reader!"
Parabio: Adam grew up in a house which made strange noises in the night, footsteps and muttering could be heard in the attic space.
A shadowy figure was seen walking into his room and when investigated, nothing was there.
Shropshire Paranormal Investigations was set up by Michelle J in the beginning of 2013 as a non-profit group of interested parties. The group consists of two main members - Michelle J and her partner Adam S.
Other people have come along on their investigations but unless the venue for an investigation is super large, we do not allow more than 4 people on an investigation*. This is to keep human contamination (e.g. muttering, shuffling, rustling clothes etc...) down to a minimum. Four is a good number as two groups of 2 can then go off to investigate separate areas while keeping safety in mind.
We do have rules to follow, mainly to keep the investigation as pure and uncontaminated as possible and secondly, to keep all investigators safe and sound**.
Our Investigative Approach is based on scientific methodologies. We don't go out and try to prove that their is a ghost or apparition. We go out to disprove the haunting. If we can not disprove a piece of evidence or give a reasonable explanation of an event or piece of evidence, then we file it under "Possible paranormal Evidence" and try to gather more information. All of our "Possibles" will be uploaded to this site for the general public to peruse and help debunk.
While we would like to believe that there is life after death and grannies soul is floating about telling you off for not finishing your dinner, we are skeptical to the end while keeping an open mind, we will accept a rational explination for an occurane than jump to a paranormal conclusion.
