  • Paranormal investigators seek strange phenomena

    Oct 28, 2013

    The mystery of what lies beyond our current realm of existence is one that has been studied, questioned and speculated upon since the dawn of mankind. This constant quest to peek beyond the astral veil -- conducted by skeptics and scholars alike -- has lent substance to various cultural staples, from belief structures to literature and areas between. As tales told around primitive campfires have evolved into scary movies and television shows, so too has the desire to make sense of the great unknown from a tangible and rational standpoint. In an age when reality television holds sway in American culture, this concept is prevalent in shows like "Ghost Adventures" and "Most Haunted." It is due in part to programs such as these that paranormal investigation is gaining popularity -- as well as credence -- as a field of research. While many people are familiar with this type of investigative programming, few residents of Fort Campbell or the local community may realize there is a dedicated team of paranormal researchers hard at work in our own backyard.
