PPI has experienced a number of paranormal occurrences while investigating and have captured an astounding amount of evidence, the majority of which is in audio form. They said they’ve never investigated somewhere and not left with audio evidence. They prescreen locations to make sure they aren’t wasting their time with faulty electric wiring or some naturally occurring cause for supposed paranormal activity.
PPI frequently gets photo evidence as well. During an investigation at the old Blackford County Hospital, a photo taken of a window showed the owner’s brother’s face. Concerned that the photo was actually a case of pareidolia, a psychological tendency to see faces or shapes in naturally occurring images, PPI compared the face in the window to a photo of the owner’s brother. The faces matched, though the brother had passed away several years previously.
Steve and Jenn said they don’t do many investigations for fun. They take their work very seriously and said the fact that they love it is a bonus to them.
“We’re in this to help people,” Steve said.
“If we’re going to do an investigation for fun, it’s going to be to learn to teach new investigators,” Jenn added.
For each location they are called to, PPI does a preliminary investigation to see if the location warrants a full investigation. Because both Steve and Jenn are sensitive to spirits, they pick up on things easily. If they feel a full investigation is needed, they will then bring in the whole team. They also check for anything that could be used to debunk the paranormal activity.
With each investigation, they set out to debunk the paranormal activity, but remain attuned to what is happening at each location. One of their group members is a building contractor, so he is able to provide insight into natural causes of supposed activity.
