Wisconsin Paranormal Investigators (WPI) was established in March 2007 by Jay and his wife Katie due to their love and passion of the paranormal.
"Katie and I were both so intrigued by the paranormal evidence we've seen in our lives. We actually took an interest in paranormal investigating as a husband/wife quest in 2006. In later March 2007, we formed a small group of friends that shared the same passion and dedication we did. We all believe there is more to our everyday normal lives. Does the paranormal really exist? Is it simply suggestive thought or mass hysteria? We needed to find the answers for ourselves. That is how our mission Hunt the Truth was born."

What does HUNT the TRUTH mean?
To determine What is Normal and What is Paranormal by using technology and approaching each situation scientifically while being 100% skeptical.
Are we ghost hunters? No.
The word paranormal is a general term that designates experiences that lie outside "the range of normal experience or scientific explanation"or that indicates phenomena understood to be outside of science's current ability to explain or measure. There are a lot of claims in the world that are paranormal, not just the ghosts claims.
So why are we not considered ghost hunters?
In our opinion, how can we hunt a ghost when the bigger question is "What is a Ghost?" It is only by theory, speculation and opinion of what a ghost is. The popular belief is that a ghost is a human beings energy coming back from the afterlife. So if it looks like a ghost, sounds like a ghost, it must be a ghost then, right? In our opinion, no. 99.9% of the time it could be debunked as a natural cause even though it seems like something paranormal. Do we believe in the possibilities of paranormal activity associated with ghosts? Absolutely. Yet to say we are ghost hunters would be incorrect because we are not hunting ghosts, we are Hunting the Truth.
We are Paranormal Investigators.We investigate and research claims of anything paranormal from ghost claims, cryptozoology creatures, urban legends, unidentified aerial phenomena, conspiracy theories as well as a decade long investigation of an unsolved mystery of river drownings. If it's paranormal in nature, WPI will Hunt the Truth behind the claims.

WPI has grown by leaps and bounds over the years with many active members. Each team member brings something different to the table. This is what makes us unique during our research because every member has their own opinion that constantly challenges one another. We are a close-knit group of investigators that became great friends throughout this journey. Simply put ... we are one big family.
We have spent hours upon hours (and many sleepless nights) to analyze each piece of evidence captured from our investigation. We have gone through the evidence with extreme measures and leave nothing up for chance. If we can't find a natural answer from a piece of evidence, we deem that paranormal. But paranormal isn't always what you think it may be.
