The Paranormal Investigators of Kenosha, Wisconsin
The Paranormal Investigators of Kenosha, Wisconsin welcome you. We are a discreet, volunteer paranormal research group that is dedicated to the study, observation and documentation of ghosts, hauntings, and urban legends in Southeastern Wisconsin and Northeastern Illinois. Since 2005, we have been helping our neighbors by conducting select paranormal investigations of historical buildings, businesses, and private residences free of charge.For your reading pleasure, we have posted brief, anonymous accounts and true evp evidence from REAL case studies. Do you know of a local haunt? Send us an email and tell us about it.
Effective June 1, 2013, we will be taking an extended break, and have decided not to accept any new cases during this time. We will be working on larger projects which will require us to travel. During these next few months, we also will be updating and revamping our website. If you are in need of immediate assistance, we feel confident in directing you to either Ghostland Society (NE Illinois, SE Wisconsin), or Wausau Paranormal Research Society (Northern Wisconsin). We feel confident that you will be pleased with these recommendations.
