SPIRIT Alabama was founded in 2019 by Terri Wilson with support from Big Daddy and Father K. Stone after discovering that previous teams failed to meet their standards for evidence gathering and investigation. In order to focus solely on paranormal phenomena analysis, Terri formed her own team and recruited like-minded individuals. The acronym SPIRIT stands for Scientific Paranormal Inspection Research Investigation Team. Through her investigative work on more than 25 unique cases across multiple states, Terri has left clients in awe.
SPIRIT is committed to respecting all philosophies, religions, and belief systems, believing that a healthy relationship with clients depends on respect for the deceased. Due to their location in Alabama, they understand the stigma associated with this work and are willing to provide complete discretion.
Public events and investigations are hosted by SPIRIT at sites such as Graceland Manor of Alabama and Kymulga Grist Mill historical area and campground in Childersburg, Alabama, where they will be holding an event on October 14th with the help of manager Ron Smith and David Cartwright.
Outside of public events, SPIRIT offers its paranormal investigative services free of charge. With hard work and dedication, they help clients find answers to their questions pertaining to the paranormal.
SPIRIT began a new Junior SPIRIT league for younger paranormal enthusiasts, which aims to teach children the importance of technique and integrity in paranormal research. The Junior team currently consists of SPIRIT team children and grandchildren.
A practicing witch, Terri is no stranger to things outside the norm, but she doesn't shy away from labeling pseudo-evidence just what it is. Early on in her investigative career, she earned the moniker of “Debunking Bitch from Hell” due to her quick wit when it came to deconstructing false evidence.
Unable to find home in a team that met her own standards of research, she created what is now the Scientific Paranormal Inspection Research Investigation Team with the help of her good friend and Registered Nurse, Stella, who brings her valuable medical skills to the team. SPIRIT Paranormal Network, and co-founded the Skeleton Key Network on Facebook. Her hope is to help normalize the paranormal and promote the acceptance of communicating with our deceased loved ones and other departed souls.
As a 15-year breast cancer survivor, Terri takes nothing for granted, especially her husband of 38 years, Len, her daughters, Jessica and Stevie, and grandchildren. Her granddaughter, Savannah, became the first member of the new Junior SPIRIT team along with the children of team members Jess Beauregard, Tiffani Goulet, and Kathrine Sorilos.
Terri is a devoted 5th-year student of witchcraft, taking classes under Mitchell Hagood at Books, Beans, and Candles Metaphysical Shoppe in Birmingham, AL.
As a teen, Jess Beauregard had her first paranormal experience with a haunted object: a metal bedframe pulled from an old family home. Her newfound curiosity spurred a keen interest in horror movies and at the age of 20, she became a practicing witch.
By chance or fate, Jess became part of the SPIRIT family after tagging along on an investigation. Jess began co-hosting Alabama Skeleton Key with Terri which quickly grew into the Skeleton Key Network. The interest from the paranormal community soon begat its expansion into the Spirit Paranormal Network. Unable to divulge many details of their investigations for the privacy of their clients, their women-owned show evolved into a discussion platform for being a witch in the South. Jess is a devoted wife and mom to two children, and her family occupies a paranormally active home on family land.
