I never thought this paranormal group would be comprised of women when I started the group. I think it’s neat that it turned out this way. Our first investigation ended with a hoot when many of the women took of running at full speed to their cars when a noisy pack of coyotes came close! This was way back in 2007 and there were a few fairly new to paranormal investigations. They are pictured above. Forget about running into stray people or astral beings – those are ok – just don’t send out the coyotes.
It was not at the location we had arrangements to investigate. That was changed at the last minute at the request. We were able to conduct an investigation at this location if we agreed to keep the name and location private. We did this with no problem. This was requested because the site has been touted as “haunted” for longer than I can remember. Years ago a few irresponsible teams posted info online and the cemetery began to get vandalized. I’ve been in this area for about 25 years. Teens liked going here for many years, long before Internet, but were fairly respectful of the location. The gate is always kept shut and locked. It is an old cemetery and we definitely appreciated the ability and trust in allowing us to investigate the site. The only evidence we obtained that night was a possible EVP.
That was information I posted years ago and was a training session more than an investigation. The name of the team changed several times before settling with East Texas Paranormal. That seems to fit us well. Little did I realize that the name was a busy Internet search which has brought a number of calls to my phone. East Texas Paranormal can be found at our website and on Facebook. Simply plug in East Texas Paranormal. We have one requirement before conducting a detailed interview or investigation – you must send a detailed email including what is happening, your first and last name, full address and phone number. Without that information we aren’t able to help and we don’t solicit investigations. The is never a charge for an investigation. However, we have started requesting a small fee to help replenish items used during a cleansing or blessing. Being the ages most of us are we are able to investigate day, night and any day of the week. Should you be several hours away we may ask for travel costs. Again, that depends on distance and is case by case. We may have another group or trusted individual we can refer to help if you are a distance away.
You can contact us a number of different ways, including the form at the bottom of this post.
