Jeremiah "Paleface" Niere
Paranormal Task Force Executive Vice President Founding Director
- Faith & Spiritual Advisory Coordinator
Administrator PTF X-treme Division
Jay is an admitted skeptic, not in the existence of ghosts, but in
the sheer number of legitimate
hauntings. Jeremiah is a devout Catholic who feels called to this research. He grew up on and around
the infamous Zombie Road, and in a town with a lot of paranormal activity in it's own right. He has a
degree in Applied Science Broadcast Communication, and experience as an audio engineer. He has
always had an interest in study of world religion and mythology. He has studied Christianity, Judaism,
Buddhism, ancient Greek, Roman, and Norse mythology, and the legends of the major Native American
tribes. To a lesser extent, he has studied some Islam, Voodoo, Santeria, Wicca, and dream
interpretation. Jeremiah knows of the dangers and lore behind Tarot, Ouija, and Scrying. Through this
study, he has gained respect and understanding for all of the religions of the world.
Jeremiah has significant audio experience as well as EVP extraction,
elimination and analysis. He also
possesses a wealth of video and photography experience which has already led to some amazing
evidentialry captures. He has had multiple levels of paranormal experiences ranging from visual and
audible to even physical types. He is the son of a detective and uses the skills taught to him from his
father for surveillance, interviews, and investigation. He has a great deal of customer service
experience which he draws on to help handle any demographic of client, with the respect, and service
that separate PARANORMAL TASK FORCE™ from the other paranormal groups.
His experience with the paranormal has only strengthened his spirituality.
He believes that in order to
serve the client properly, you must interview, collect evidence, analyze the evidence to try to figure out
what you are dealing with, then work with the client to determine an appropriate course of action.
While he certainly believes in Demons, and possession, he does not believe that all paranormal activity
is "evil." He uses his Faith and science to lead him to the answer that achieves the result the client is
Jeremiah became a Founding Director of PARANORMAL TASK FORCE™

Keith Age and The Booth Brothers for
"Children of the Grave" which will be released on October 2, 2007. He also served in the vital role of a
research assistant for this film project as well.
Jeremiah "Paleface" Niere 20 Questions
1. Where do you see ghost hunting and Paranormal groups, web sites or Ghost information, tours, Books Paranormal Radio and Television in 10 years?
I see paranormal groups growing in exponentially over the next 10 years as technology becomes more readily available at cheaper prices. I compare the paranormal realm to the deepest parts of the ocean in that they are the untamed frontiers. A growth in evidence should accompany the technology boom, and create more believers. I believe that in order for this to be successful, we as investigators have to seek out new places to investigate.
2. What would you personally consider to be the definitive proof that ghosts are real?
I already believe. The definitive proof for me was physical contact. I was repeatedly tapped on the shoulder during an investigation. I am not trying to prove to other people that spirits exists, I am trying to help people in need.
3. What is the most real evidence you personally have uncovered so far?
The most unmistakable is always a physical contact. A picture of what I believe to be ectoplasm was snapped right after the physical contact. I have taken several photos, and had several experiences during EVP sessions.
4. Are you skeptical of the claims other make of their findings?
I am skeptical of everything. I will take everyone at their word until I have a reason not to. I think that there is a tendency to want to believe that your own evidence is the real deal.
5. If you could investigate your "Dream Haunted Hot Spot" where would it be?
I don't really have a dream spot. I would like to visit New Orleans in the United States, but I believe that non Christian and so called 3rd world countries have the most extreme cases to investigate.
6. What was your first Paranormal encounter?
My first encounter as an investigator was capturing some self luminescent orbs on Zombie road.
7. What scares you about Ghost Hunting or Paranormal Investigations?
The thing that scares me most, is that in extreme cases, we will not be able to help someone in need.
8. If you could work side by side with one of the Paranormal Investigator greats, who would it be?
I don't really have a favorite, the Warrens, maybe.
9. Read any good Paranormal Books lately?
"The Devil Came to St. Louis"
10. What Question do people ask you most when you tell them your a paranormal investigator, Radio Personality?
I think it's funny when people say "do you really believe in that stuff?" They act like I'm crazy for a minute, and then open up about experiences they have had.
11. In your opinion, Where is the most Haunted city in America?
12. Do you feel more people should get involved with Ghost hunting or Paranormal Investigation?
More isn't always better, there is plenty of room for intelligent investigators, but there are already a lot of "social" investigators.
13. What does the future hold for you?
I don't know, but you could always ask a "psychic."
14. Paranormal Conventions do you see them growing? And which ones are the Must go to ones?
Paranormal conventions should continue to grow. As evidence continues to mount in support of the paranormal, more and more people will accept it. The draw to know more about it will be inevitable.
15. What is your most favored tool of the trade?
My favorite tool of the trade is my mind. Any tool is only as capable as the person operating it.
16. Tell us about your best moment in investigating or conference attending for you?
My best moment in investigating happened when I was able to take
part in the filming of "Children of the Grave." A Booth
