The Southern Tier of New York is a region rich in history, culture, and legends, including stories of paranormal activity. Empirical Paranormal, a paranormal investigation team founded in April 2004, is dedicated to exploring and uncovering the mysteries of the supernatural. The team is comprised of five members, each with their unique skills and experiences.
Psychic Medium and Empath Gina Caprari is the director and lead investigator of the team, bringing her expertise in leadership and organizational skills to the group. Joe Kresse serves as co-director and lead investigator, with a strong background in investigative research and analysis. Psychic Medium and Empath Dominic Caprari, the tech director, combines his technical knowledge with his psychic abilities to provide the team with the latest technology and investigative techniques. Team Historian Scott F. Jones, with his intuitive and empathetic abilities, serves as a lead investigator. Finally, Jenna Mierisch is a lead investigator with a keen eye for detail and an ability to find patterns in data.
Empirical Paranormal has conducted numerous investigations throughout the years, with varying and interesting results. These investigations have included EVP's, phantom odors, doors closing, and even a full-bodied apparition of a shadow person. Their investigations have been focused on searching for proof of spirit intervention, and using the latest technology, with outstanding results.
One of their favorite investigations took place at Connecticut Hill, NY. The team experienced stones being thrown through the woods, and a farmer's goats going missing prior with a blood-curdling scream in the distance not long after. The team also saw the sudden appearance and disappearance of two entities walking down the path as they explored the remains of a small hut in the woods. Another memorable investigation was at the Phelps Mansion Museum in Binghamton, NY. During a public investigation, the team experienced two doors slamming at the same time while a guest saw an apparition of a male with a top hat in a suit. Several times while investigating the master bedroom, the team experienced nausea, lightheadedness, and cold sweat, along with hearing voices of entities carrying on a conversation.
Empirical Paranormal approaches paranormal investigations very scientifically, gathering baselines of every building they investigate, using their senses along with their tools to validate their experiences, and using teamwork and reason to explore, explain, and investigate the paranormal. They also have a strong focus on community involvement, having investigated organizations, buildings, and businesses that wanted to get the public involved and raise awareness and money to keep museums open, reclaim lost buildings, and preserve local history. The team is always involved in public events and hopes to increase awareness of the paranormal field as they grow.
The team's equipment includes thermal imaging cameras, EMF meters, digital and analog recorders, a geophone, a spirit box, and a laser grid system. Empirical Paranormal also performs clearings, also known as cleansings of spirits, using intuition, empathetic, and other psychic abilities, as well as tools to exercise negative energies. In addition to their psychic abilities and tech equipment, the team incorporates the use of metaphysical tools such as dowsing rods and pendulums and trigger items and attractants like toys and alcohol.
