News, Events and New Gear

It's that busy time of year for us; with warm weather now breathing down our necks, it's only natural that we would start planning some new investigations and overnight events for the year.  We have also revamped our website.  If you take a look at the investigations listed on the site, you will notice that they now feature embedded photos and mini audio players embedded right in the articles.  There are no more pesky external links to deal with (with the rare exception of when we need an extra large photo to be available for review, as in the Woodruff Fontaine House case).  So take a lap around the site and check out all those EVP's that you maybe didn't hear before.  I also invite everyone to check out our Facebook page (there's a link in the sidebar of this site).  You can post your own paranormal photos, videos and audio there to share with other paranormal enthusiasts, as well as add a link for your own site.

News-wise, we have several announcements to make.  First off, it's probably not too early to announce that we will be teaming up with the Woodruff Fontaine House again this year to host haunted tours of the living museum.  We will be performing a pair of new investigations of the premises, so we hope to have new audio, photographic and video evidence of the haunting there to present at the event.  If you've never heard of this location, or of the spirit of Mollie Woodruff, you may want to check it out.  Haunted tours aside, the home is a great place to visit (they are a museum that's open most days) and they offer tours.  Check out their site for more info.

We also want to let everyone know that we have two more articles appearing in Paranormal Underground magazine.  The April 2010 issue (out now, just check out their website) features our investigation at Devil's Backbone in Grand Tower, Illinois and the May 2010 issue will have our investigation of the Lehmann House.  Both of these investigations are featured on this site, but the magazine will have tons of additional articles concerning the paranormal, so it's worth checking out for sure.

The last thing I want to mention is that one of our members, Brandon, is now officially in the U.S. Army, so we are down an investigator.  Though we can usually do our work with just two people (and we actually prefer a small team), we do feel the need to take on a new investigator.  Ideally, this person will live in a reasonable distance from Memphis so attending investigations, etc. won't be a problem.  If you are interested in coming aboard, shoot me an email at

On the events front, we have a couple new intriguing investigations coming up.  We will be hosting an overnight at Duff Green Mansion in Vicksburg, Mississippi as well as at the infamous Angel's Park Hotel in Hot Springs, Arkansas.  I am in discussions with both locations and hope to have a hard date set VERY soon.  Those will be announced here and on our Facebook page.  I am also in talks for a unique investigation of our own local 'Waverly Hills' style sanitorium that's known for its paranormal activity.  Though this won't be an open overnight event, we will definitely keep our friends in mind for joining us on this trip.

Lastly, I wanted to introduce a new piece of gear for everyone.  It's a small, handheld nightvision camera that runs off batteries and records directly to SD memory cards.  What makes it cool is that it also features an onboard flashlight, so you can use your second hand to carry an additional piece of gear (like an EMF detector).  But, perhaps, the coolest thing of all about it, is that it only costs $80.00!  Why is it so cheap?  It was designed to be a toy (and you can tell it was because it's very lightweight), but it functions very well and does offer an easy to use alternative to a camcorder (and using SD memory cards makes it easy to offload the video footage).  You can order your camera through this link at our Amazon Store.
