Going to go a little off my normal blog posts today, thought I would talk about being a former paranormal investigator, I say former because we haven’t been able to keep the team together, plus with limited income, go out on any investigations in quite some time. Our group was started by my children and was originally called Utah Ghost Research and Investigations or (UGRI) in 2003. We did quite well back then investigated quite a few places, we had a local radio station follow us for a while U92 in SLC. Plus even a few of the local news stations went with us on some investigations. We even had a great website that was shut down when one of members left who was managing the website. Now we are known as Utah Paranormal Investigation or (UTPI) 2009.
We all did it for the excitement, science, proof the paranormal exists, and it was a great hobby for us all.
Over time we, (well mostly me) invested a lot of money keeping this going. We also invested a lot of time. But we never charged anyone for an investigation, or paid to go to a building. Most of the time we were invited because the people just wanted answers, or some kind of proof.
What I have seen over the last few years really saddens me. The world of paranormal research has gotten way too commercial. People on TV making huge amounts of money, paranormal groups either buying or managing buildings, and now charging a fee for investigations. Well I will now say something that will probably piss of some of the groups involved in paranormal investigations. You are a farce, you have forgotten what the true paranormal world is all about.
When I got involved with Paranormal investigations it was all about the science and providing evidence, providing proof that the paranormal world existed. That is the way it should still be, so sad that is is not.
Here is our news clips

Well time to go for today, I do believe in the paranormal, and look forward to going on some investigations again some day.
