We are located in Streator IL if you are having problems with any kind of Paranormal activity in your house, business, or property in Illinois or anywhere then please contact us via-our e-mail we will get back with you ASAP.
We are very connected with many other paranormal groups, and if by chance we can help you then we sure will try to, or we will definitely lead you to a group that does have the same values as we do, and can help you in any way. We promise to find you a reputable group in your area.
Our main goal is not fame here, but to be able TO help in any way possible that we can, and to further educate people in accepting the fact that there are other realms out there, and those that infiltrate back and forth into ours. Whether they are good or evil.

Thanks to all the RIPS members for sitting here and going through numerous pictures, audio tapes , and video clips.... to finally make our dream a reality with this website. I know it was many painstaking hours of work to accomplish this, and let's hope that ALL of our years and years of hard work will show here, and what it is that we truly do believe in!
We have finally decided with putting up this website to come forward and out of the closet then in order to research further into what we truly do believe to be out there amongst us all, and to learn then why. Plus we have helped many overcome their grief in losing loved ones, and to be able to move on, cope, and understand.
I am indebted to the people of this group, we are all close and like family....... and there is a reason that we are, and this works in order to be able to prove what we set out to prove. or to disprove. We welcome skeptics........... after all we are our worst own critics, and we rightfully should be................ Kay (founder).
We refrain from using ouija boards, seances or any other form of summoning up activity in order to research the paranormal. Although we are a very religious group, many of us come from varied religious backgrounds, and respect each faith therefore respectufully.

Here on our homepage are a series of four pictures taken at one of our favorite haunts, Hadley's Cemetery on Aug. 9th, 2006. We were all standing outside the perimeter of the cemetery and happened to see a rather large "flash" coming from inside. I told everyone that still happened to have any battery power left to shoot and shoot now......yay Mary for capturing these great pictures!!
You can see investigator Mary was able to catch the bright flash of light in the first picture, and granted this is shot into the cemetery which happens to be located in a very remote area with dense trees surrounding this....therefore there couldn't be any outside interference at all with any of these pictures. Many many faces are seen in this ectoplasmic mist forming, and then it is gone as fast as it did appear on film to us then.
