Genesis and our Mission

SRI was born out of the Covid-19 Pandemic, and years old planning by founders Brian Clary and Theresa Racer-Cheshire. Each having around 20 years of prior experience in paranormal investigation, the goal was to create the premier southern WV investigation team. 


We are a paranormal research and investigation team dedicated to reasonable, and sound, investigation techniques and strategies.  In the field of paranormal investigation, with skepticism and criticism abound, it is becoming increasingly important to base our findings on scientifically sound data, with a skeptics point of view. 

While we truly believe that paranormal experiences can, typically, be explained away with logical explanations we also understand that there are no absolutes in science. 

Having a paranormal episode, or interested in our services? Please give us a shout!
