THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR NIGHTWALKER PARANORMAL
I have had countless experiences that I cannot explain, that is the what made me want to dive headfirst into this field. From hearing and seeing things in my childhood home to traveling to some of the most infamous locations around the US, I can wholeheartedly say that I absolutely love what I do. I want to do everything in my power to help bring the study of the paranormal to as many open minds as possible. Because if there is one thing I have learned over the years that I can’t stress enough, is that you have to possess an open mind when searching for answers regarding the paranormal. How else can you stand in an empty location, talking to seemingly nothing at all, and NOT feel like a complete fool? Exactly. Without an open mind, you can’t. So please, feel free to give us all the feedback in the world. We encourage every bit of it. But at the same time, we ask that you don’t be “that person” that has nothing better to do than criticize. If it happens to make our site (whether that be audio or video evidence) it has already been analyzed in every way possible and we honestly believe it to be paranormal. On that note, let me make this perfectly clear: we will never, I repeat, NEVER, doctor, tamper, Photoshop, etc. ANY of our footage to make it seem “legit.”
I started Nightwalker Paranormal Investigations with one thing in mind: to find the answers to questions that have been making people question their sanity since the dawn of mankind. I believe that ghosts exist. No matter what your religion or spiritual belief, they exist in one form or another. It is completely up to you whether or not you choose to acknowledge them. So, why are we different? What makes us so special out of the thousands of paranormal groups out there? Well, for one, we look at each investigation as one big science experiment.
Cause and Effect.
We are searching for the cause of all these experiences, and if we are lucky, documenting the effects in the form of evidence. We are not "ghost hunters." We use scientific theories and our findings are always open to interpretation. We will NEVER shove our so-called "evidence" down your throat. We are not your same ole' orb catching, flabbergasting, "see that shape, it's a ghost" kind of group. So join us, learn with us, as we continue to search for answers and find out what the heck is going on out there.
My name is Justin “JT” Payne. I am the Co-Founder and Lead Investigator of Nightwalker Paranormal Investigations and also a practicing paramedic. The medical field has been the catalyst in bringing me further into paranormal investigations. I have always been intrigued by the unknown. I was raised in a religious setting but soon fell away to decide my own beliefs. If I could be raised to believe in angels and demons, why couldn’t I believe in the paranormal world of entities and spirits of the dead?
I had my first unexplainable experience at a young age, but was quickly brushed off by others who chalked it up to a “child’s wild imagination”. I wasn’t satisfied by that answer. Again at the age of 18, I experienced something entirely unexplainable, this time it was quite more intense because it involved a deceased relative whom I was extremely close to. I met Dakota when he was 16 and I was 19. We became friends on a level like no other. The man is my best friend and was even the Best Man at my wedding. I would follow him to the gates of Hell and back. It wasn’t until he brought me along on an investigation that I truly became enthralled with the idea of the paranormal. I was like a moth to the flame. I was drawn to the idea of finding out the truth behind my experiences.
Being a paramedic I am taught to think critically. To know when to make a decision that is evidence-based and to follow my instincts. I feel that has been paramount to my technique in investigating. At Nightwalker Paranormal, we refuse to make rash decisions based on floppy evidence. We want to find the best hard evidence we can. It is only then that we can make a calculated decision. Skeptics tend to say, “There is a rational explanation for everything”. Well, this isn’t rationalism. This an evidence-based science experiment. We are not here to decide what is rational or irrational.
Throughout history, the idea the paranormal has riddled the world with questions and in turn, has brought to life a field that beyond what we are. Although there have been past stigmas associated with paranormal investigations such as the Salem Witch Trials, Satanic Cults, and so on, there have also been renowned inventors and scholars who have participated in paranormal. Thomas Edison, yes the inventor of the light bulb, believed in the paranormal. He is quoted saying, "I have been at work for some time building an apparatus to see if it is possible for personalities which have left this earth to communicate with us." A man who was revered as the greatest inventor of his time studied feverishly in the field of paranormal investigations. We have been given the chance follow in his footsteps and have chosen to do so. With the technology we have today we will do our best to find the causes of the unknown. With our bodies and intuition, we will find and feel the energies left for us to discover.
