Investigating Virginia's Center for Paranormal Research & Investigation

Center for Paranormal Research & Investigation

Please check out their wonderful website at: virginiaghosts.com/newsite/

By Jerry Biels

The Center for Paranormal Research and Investigation is a non-profit organization based outside of Richmond,VA.. Founded by the lovely Bobbie Atristain a great Writer and a respected TAPS Partner, Investigator. Bobbie appeared on the Scfy reality series Ghost Hunters during the Seaon 3 investigation of a private residence in Chespeake, VA. She is the Founder & Director of CPRI (Center for Paranormal Reasearch and Investigation) located in Virgina.

They are in my book one of the best organizations in America to be associated with. Through many years of research study and exploration they have openly conduct investigations into the paranormal in a non-metaphysical manner. Through their actions they seek out allegedly "haunted locations" and to assist those who are experiencing problems with the paranormal. And of course they have made many eye opening discoveries over the years. Which helps prove that the oldest paranormal research team in the state Of Virginia is also the best!

The book begins by describing why the paranormal is worthy of scientific investigation and why belief in the paranormal has increased over the last 10 years. Next it reviews the areas of neuroscience, neurotheology, and quantum physics. These are relatively new areas to mainstream science and therefore can be unfamiliar even to the veteran paranormal investigator. The brief overview of each topic provides one with a general understanding of the topic and explains why they are important to paranormal research and how they may someday make the paranormal very normal.

The book begins by describing why the paranormal is worthy of scientific investigation and why belief in the paranormal has increased over the last 10 years. Next it reviews the areas of neuroscience, neurotheology, and quantum physics. These are relatively new areas to mainstream science and therefore can be unfamiliar even to the veteran paranormal investigator. The brief overview of each topic provides one with a general understanding of the topic and explains why they are important to paranormal research and how they may someday make the paranormal very normal.

The basics of the three-step investigation process used by The Center for Paranormal Research and Investigation (CPRI) is presented next. This is the same process used by the group I am affiliated with and it is good to see others using it. This investigation procedure is very successful and should be used by more paranormal investigators. A little bit more information on what types of questions are asked during the interview and the specifics of the full-scale investigation would have been an added bonus.

The review of theories on infrasound, electromagnetic fields, and geomagnetic fields, their effects on the brain, and how they can be the cause of some subjective paranormal experiences is extremely well done. Complex theories from Michael Persinger and Vic Tandy are presented in a logical and easily understandable format. Examples from the scientific literature and real-life case studies provide the needed support in order to drive the information home. The reader will also enjoy learning about some of the unique equipment the CRPI is using to test these theories in the field.

The next couple of chapters deal with hardcore scientific, psychological, and parapsychological information and concepts as they relate to the paranormal. Bobbie proposes that 90% to 95% of the cases the CPRI have investigated are haunted people/haunted minds and NOT due to a discarnate entity, poltergeist/RSPK (Recurrent Spontaneous Psychokinesis), or residual haunting (of course there is still that 5% to 10% that may be paranormal for you true believers). She discusses the haunted people/haunted minds concept within the framework of known psychological conditions such as: dysfunctional families, bipolar disorder, childhood trauma and sexual abuse, and temporal lobe epilepsy. It is clear that Bobbie has a firm grasp of the published scientific literature and has done an excellent job of applying that information to her field research.

The book then goes on to describe the various psychological phenomena that can be mistaken for paranormal experiences. Not only does one learn what causes the phenomenon but is also educated on what type of paranormal activity it resembles. Once again I enjoyed how each point was reinforced by real-life examples.

Finally, there are various case studies that have been investigated by the CPRI. The reader will particularly enjoy the Dangerous Orbs chapter!

Each year CPRI investigator's are interviewed by various radio programs. Here's a small sample of some interviews that we have saved over the years that are still interesting to listen to....

Members or actually to a large degree skeptics and not direct de bunkers. Members of the group of course are honestly committed to proposing new theories regarding the paranormal that will be reproducible within a laboratory environment. The credibility of the group is maintained above all else as they do not work with psychics or conduct investigations using metaphysical methods. In addition, they do not claim to be experts in the paranormal, as no experts exist when it comes to the supernatural, no matter what anyone may claim or who may claim to be one.

CPRI is currently working on numerous theories and research relating to the paranormal. To read more about these click here.

 

 3 Step Investigation Process
Due to the high volume of investigation requests CPRI does not investigate all requests. We do make preliminary inquiries for ALL requests but NOT all of these result in a full scale investigation.
There is a 3 step process to our investigating procedures (it is explained below). If you feel you are experiencing paranormal events and would like a consultation - free of charge - please fill out this form. A member of the CPRI team will respond to your inquiry within 48 business hours.
  • Step One - We receive your email and dispatch it to the Regional Director of your area. He/She will call/email you to conduct an initial interview.

     

    Step Two - An initial investigation takes place - this involves only a couple of regional investigators. It last about 2 hours. During this time an EM (electro magnetic) Field survey is conducted, a lengthy interview is conducted with all of the occupants of the location, photographs are taken and audio recordings are made - based on this information - the Regional Director will discuss the need for a full scale investigation.

     

  • Step Three - If a full scale investigation is warrented - meaning that the activity occurs in a somewhat predictable fashion or is a regular occurance - a team will be assembled - based on the type of activity that most frequently occurs to conduct an all night investigation (usually between 11:00 pm and 4:00 am).

 

The CPRI Team
CPRI, Inc is different from most paranormal organizations because our team is composed of professionals from diversified backgrounds. Our investigators have been trained by VA State certified forensic police instructors in the art of evidence collecting and interviewing witnesses. In the event any physical evidence is collected we have an establish protocol for Chain of Custody to ensure the integrity of all evidence collected.

Key Personnel Excerpts Written by Bobbie Atristain   
Founder & Director....Bobbie Atristain

 Bobbie founded CPRI in the Spring of 2000 with the help of Matt Didier of the the Toronto Ghosts and Hauntings Research Society.

Bobbie Atristain


Bobbie and her husband Rick reside in Nottoway County, VA. She is a researcher and writer for the print edition of Ghost! Magazine, Haunted Times Magazine, The UK's Mystery Mag, T.A.P.S. Para Magazine and has even written article for FATE magazine. Her first book entitled Haunted Minds, Haunted People, was published in 2006. In early 2005 she was awarded an honorary certificate in Parapsychology from the Southeastern Institute of Parapsychology for her research into the paranormal. She is also a member of the International High I.Q. Society.

Bobbie's interest in the paranormal began at an early age which prompted her to read anything and everything related to the paranormal and the occult. She spent summers at her grandmother's home in Gretna, Virginia where lots of "unexplainable" events frequently occurred. These events only fueled her interest.

 

Bobbie studied art history and political science at Sweet Briar College where there were plenty of ghost stories. Once she finished college she moved to Lynchburg where she lived in an old house where plenty of unexplainable events occurred. She had the opportunity to utilize her investigative techniques on a daily basis.

 

Since she founded CPRI in May of 2000 she has had the chance to serve as a paranormal consultant for PBS's Things that Go Bump in the Night 2,a Sci Fi series, Fangoria TV, Discovery Kids and for two of the Travel Channel's productions including the World's Most Cursed Places. She has guest starred on the SciFi hit series "Ghost Hunters". She also consulted with L.B. Taylor to give him some ideas for stories to use in his Ghost of Virginia book series. She along with the CPRI, Inc have been covered by such mainstream periodicals as The New York Times, The New York Daily News, The Washington Post, The Roanoke Times, The Richmond Times Dispatch and The Washington Times concerning the paranormal in Virginia. She has also visited numerous "allegedly" haunted locations worldwide including the infamous Woodchester Mansion in England.

When she's not conducting paranormal research she is busying either flying an airplane, jumping out of one or piercing people with a foil. Bobbie has FINALLY finished her first book covering her scientific research findings from CPRI, Inc field investigations - it's called Haunted Minds, Haunted People.

Social Media Director....Amy Kizer

 Amy joined CPRI in August 2008 and was appointed as the Social Media Director in August 2009.<

Image
Amy Kizer


Although born in WV, Amy grew up - from almost four years old on - just outside of New Orleans, LA. She has lived in Charlottesville for the past few years, and is a registered nurse at the University of Virginia. Amy has been interested in the paranormal as far back as she can remember. As a small child growing up in southern Louisiana, Amy had occasional encounters with a man she later discovered – through old family photos she had never seen before- was a deceased Native American great grandfather she never knew. She grew up reading anything about the paranormal she could get her hands on, as well as watch as many documentaries & TV specials about ghost hunting and investigations as possible. She clearly recalls her mother noting what an “odd interest” for a young child to have that, according to her mother, seemed to “come from nowhere”. Amy also had several other personal experiences as a child that, to this day, she cannot explain.

Amy became a member of CPRI in August 2008 after attending a paranormal conference in Philadelphia in May of that same year. The conference & subsequent investigation at Eastern State Penitentiary refueled her passion for wanting to become an investigator. During the ESP investigation, Amy had several unexplained personal experiences, as well as many encounters with shadow people. While still attending the conference, Amy researched groups in Virginia that held similar beliefs in & approaches to the paranormal as her own. She is currently an investigator in the Central Region and relishes in the fact that following a passion is one of the best things you can do for yourself.

Amy’s other interests include reading, watching documentaries, Greek & Roman mythology, a love of medieval & Victorian era history, and she has recently rekindled an interest in researching past life regression.

Freddie Sineath
A native of Central Virginia, Freddie had his first experiences becoming acclimated to the sights, sounds and activity of the paranormal as a young child growing up in an old 1840 era farm house. The house was situated in the middle of a Civil War battlefield where hordes of artifacts and cannonballs were frequently uncovered in the yard and gardens.

He was also a common sight giving talks and lectures at battlefield parks, colleges, schools, and museums. He is frequently called upon for his expertise to assist collectors and museums with authentication or identification of various historical artifacts. His collective historical resume also includes participating in a number of historical based TV and Movie productions, as both a part time actor, and as a professional historical advisor to the film industry. He continues to research, write, lecture, participate in living history programs, as well as a Civil War Reenactor.

Various events occurred that he personally witnessed over the last few years had rekindled his interest and research in the paranormal. Joining the ranks of CPRI in 2004 as the organization's resident Historian, and as a Paranormal Investigator with the Central Regional Team in VA.


Public Affairs Officer.....Allen Slonaker 

Allen was appointed as the PAO in 2008.

Image
Allen Slonaker
A native of the City of Richmond, Allen grew up in a Victorian era home in the city’s downtown. It was there that he had his first brushes with the paranormal. Allen was exposed to the city’s history and lore at a very early age. That sparked a lifelong interest in history and the paranormal which ultimately lead him to join CPRI in 2007. In joining CPRI, he was thrilled to find a group that approached the study of the paranormal in such an interesting and professional manner. In addition to working as the Public Affairs Officer for CPRI, Allen also serves as investigator with the Central Virginia regional team.

    Allen has a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Criminal Justice from Virginia Commonwealth University with minor courses of study in sociology and urban planning.

U.K. Investigator.....Robert M. Snow 


Mr. Snow joined the CPRI, Inc team in the Summer of 2005.

Robert Snow has had an interest in the paranormal for many years. His appetite for the unexplained and mysterious was gained from his late Grandfather, Dr Richard Clay, a medical practitioner in Wiltshire. Dr Clay had several paranormal experiences himself and being a very methodical mind he recorded them on paper as soon as possible after the incident. He also recorded experiences of his patients that were related to him. Robert is now the owner of Dr Clay’s archives, having inherited them when his Grandfather died in the 1970s, he is always adding to them himself. Robert was until recently the General Secretary of The Ghost Club, the oldest paranormal research organisation in the world, having being founded in 1862.

Robert always looks at reports of supernatural happenings objectively and says that from his experience ninety percent of so called paranormal activity can be explained naturally through careful and objective investigation. However there is about ten percent of these incidents that seem to defy all investigation and just can’t be explained. It is this ten percent that interests Robert Snow.

Robert lives in an old building that is over 250 years old in an isolated village in Dorset in the South West of England. Unfortunately for Robert there are no ghosts in his home, much to his disappointment, or if there are they have not made their presence known to him so far.

Robert is always pleased to receive reports of paranormal activity and happenings to add to his now considerable archives.

Our main focus on researching the paranormal is science. Our scientific research staff is composed of physicists, environmental scientists, geologists, chemists, radio-nuclear chemists and Aerospace engineers. These scientists are from the National Academy of Science, NASA and Lockheed Martin to name a few. We also have a former physics professor from Loyola University on staff. Unlike many organizations who concentrate on exploratory research by just conducting investigations CPRI uses confirming research along with Mathematic principles and Physics in conjunction with experiments to study the paranormal.

She is by what may call a real conduit to the world of the dead. She dressers in ceremonial robes, draws magical circles on the floor and commands spirits from Heaven, Hell and all places in between to appear before her and communicate with the living. As a teenager she studied heavily The Black Arts by Richard Cavendish and The Grand Grimoire by A.E Waite, the Malleus Maleficarum and anything she could get her hands on by the great by Eliphas Levi, John Dee and the great beast, Aleister Crowley. www.ghosthuntersofamerica.com

A professional Necromancer and founder of the Sorcerers Guild And Necromancers of Texas and of greater Houston, Texas. Waugh has been practicing and conducting rituals for many paranormal investigators for over 20 years. Waugh also paints many spiritual and common murals and lives in a small Texas town with her three dogs. She also over the years makes ceremonial candles and is active in ghost hunting in the deep South. Summoning the dead to communicate with the living is a natural daily occurrence for Waugh. "I have been doing this since I was a child." " When I lived in Galveston, Texas about 15 years ago, I was introduced to the ancient rights of ceremonial Necromancy as a ritual by a great shaman called Freebird, and because of him and his diligence to the art, I still practice it until this day." "However, if a spirit has something vital to impart to you, they will call upon you, not vice-versa and no ritual is needed".

She then Got involved with the local Hoodoo Voodoo's of the area and new doors where opened to her concerning communicating with the dead.

Waugh was baptized and trained in the secret dark religion by Bianca The Voodoo Queen of New Orleans. Waugh lived in New Orleans for 3 years until she learned all about spells, hex's and how to hoodoo voodoo people as she says.

Waugh also owned and managed the fantastic Candle Making Company in Galveston, Texas for many years that catered to the eclectic patrons taste of many of the states visitors and just curious. She then moved to Houston's Famous Vodoun area 5th ward. This now where she resides to this day. Her home today is a testimony to Necromancy and her new found religion of Voodoo Hoodoo.

Necromantic practitioners such as Waugh conducts, and entails respect and reverence not only for the spirits of the dead, but for the spirits of Hell, Heaven and all places in between.

Waugh is often compared today in her facial features and many similar practices as being a modern Dr. John Dee. He of course was one of the most fascinating characters of the Elizabethan period just as Waugh is recognized as such in modern times. The events of Dee's life are filled with science, experiments, astrology and mathematics which he aligned with magic, the supernatural and alchemy! All of which is Waugh's personal passion and driven honest beliefs. These are also stead fast traditions she does and true in practicing openly. A few of her select followers say she is the actual reincarnation of John Dee. Waugh also practices astrology, and is very continuously studying the Black Arts.

Waugh, a real big hearted Texas gal does not comment on any of this privately or publicly ... for she is humble in her paranormal studies and research to the core. Gina Lanier a close friend of her's relates: "Waugh is a very outgoing friendly, charming and a downright loveable person, and gets along equally well with the living and the dead." Lanier and Waugh once investigated a real Haunted Texas Federal Prison together for close to two years in the early 1990's and had many startling paranormal adventures while there.

Lisa Lee Harp Waugh's accomplishments have been achieved through hard work, persistence, and a goal-oriented attitude required to overcome obstacles and reach difficult goals. Waugh shares her approach to communicating with the dead's success in this motivational performance that's sure to inspire Paranormal Investigators to excel in their life.
