The Benevolent Ouija

By Amy Bennett, Tri-City NYPS Lead Investigator

Trends.   There are a lot of them.   As a society, we see them come and go as fast as the Japanese Bullet train, and sometimes as slow as a banana slug on the sidewalk.  It seems like most of the time, trends are easily dismissive and go without even a second thought; they just pass through time with no one waiting on the platform to get aboard whatever it is.  Sometimes they pertain to diets, sometimes they pertain to the meaning of…

Open mindedness or just plain naive? You decide.

By Gary Robusto, Tri-City NYPS Founder

  As a paranormal researcher for 18 yrs now, I have seen, experienced and witnessed a lot of different things in our field. After all, we are investigators of events, witness claims, other investigators' claims, outside contacts & clients and most of all the countless hours of data collected from each case that we do. It's our job and responsibility to keep an open, unbiased mindset in all the work that we do.  As a person that conducts…

I like people who shake other people up and make them feel uncomfortable. -Jim Morrison

By Amy Bennett, Tri-City NYPS Lead Investigator

   We grow up thinking that everything there is to know, is known.  Everything is the way it is; it will forever remain that way.  This is so limiting.  In fact, it is so limiting that it is destructive, yet we're teaching this understanding to each other so subtly and almost 'undercover'.  We are so accustomed to knowing and taking in what we're taught with such adamancy of fact, that we hardly ever even think to question any of…

Because I Heard it was Haunted

By Amy Bennett, Tri-City NYPS Lead Investigator

There is one saying that acts as a common justification for trespassing into all sorts of abandoned and/or derelict structures, outdoor properties, and anywhere else that the saying can apply:  "...because I heard it was haunted."  Not only does it justify trespassing, it justifies complete disregard for the memory of the deceased and the preservation of history.

 

That statement alone has allowed so many people to feel…

We captured an EVP of "Anna" on our recorder

   By Gary Robusto, Tri-City NYPS Founder & Group Leader

   As human beings, we always need to have some sort of understanding in everything that we do, see, hear and witness. We try to always put a name with a face, recognize someones voice and always try to wrap our brains around things that happen to us. That's how we function in everyday life. It's like seeing someone you know you've seen before and then rattling your brain to remember how you know that person, even…

Good Sleuthing, Sherlock, But That's Not Evidence

By Amy Bennett, Tri-City NYPS Lead Investigator

"Paranormal Evidence"

   That is a phrase that to me, holds very little water, and doesn't seem to be able to stay afloat in too many arguments of an intelligent nature.  There isn't a lot of paranormal evidence that can hold its own in a court of law either; it's not something you'd present at a murder trial, we'll just say that.  Yet…

The "Flashlight Test": True facts or home entertainment?

By Gary Robusto, Tri-City NYPS Founder & Head Investigator

"Please turn the flashlight on," “Only turn the light on for yes answers,” "Can you turn the light back off for us?" These are the sayings some of us use while conducting what’s known as a flashlight session to try and communicate with anything supposedly ghostly around us. Is this form of communication acceptable in the paranormal community? Is it possible evidence that we are having a live-time paranormal…
