BALTIMORE - What was that bump in the night? Did you hear that sqeaking door? Hey, who moved the mayo? If you are not getting a good explanation to any of these questions...you better call Ron and Russ. Ron Peacock and Russ Noratel, from The Baltimore Society for Paranormal Research.
Unlike the "Ghost Hunter" type stories you see on TV, Ron, senior investigator/tech specialist, and Russ, team leader, don't expect to find actual ghosts. In fact, they say that most noises and other "haunting" kind of issues are easily explainable--that's why the BSPR is one of the nation's most porfessional investigative organizations.
They won't say someone doesn't have a ghost, but they will do everything they can to prove what's going on and give the homeowners peace of mind.
Here are some things that make them different from other ghost hunters:
* They don't investigate in the dark (as ghost hunters do on TV) unless there is no light source. It's dangerous to your group and there's no practical reason for it.
* They don't believe everything in the world is paranormal. They try to find all non paranormal possibilities before they even consider calling something paranormal.
* They train their investigators in the proper use of the equipment that they use--not the way it is used on TV.
* They hold workshops to train other investigators and the public on the history of ghost hunting and psychical research and the historical/modern technology that is used and its proper application.
*They inform the public and new investigators of the differences between true paranormal research and what you see on TV. Explaining that even if theses group conduct legitimate investigations off camera, what you see on TV is for entertainment.
* They believe in the following priorities during an investigation:
1 - The safety of the team.
2 - The needs of the client.
3 - The documentation of evidence.
