Kerri Wright is today’s featured investigator. As a member of Georgia Paranormal Investigators, she has had some incredible experiences, and collected a few stunning photos, which you’ll see below. The Windsor Hotel in Americus, Georgia, was already on my list of haunted places I’d like to investigate, but now I want to go there with Kerri. She gets results!
Where do you live?
Byron, which is in Middle Georgia
To what investigation teams do you belong?
I am one of the Co-Founders and the Case Manager for GPI, Georgia Paranormal Investigators. I also work closely with a local Demonologist on cases, trying to help those in need of Spiritual help.
What made you want to be a paranormal investigator?
I have always had a life long, deep interest in all things paranormal. I did have an experience as a child, where my deceased grandmother was standing at the foot of my bed looking at me. I would like to know who, what, why, where & how come? Why does this phenomena happen?
When was your first investigation, and what was it like?
My first “real” investigation was at the Windsor Hotel in Americus, Ga. After being in the hotel room for only a few minutes, we “caught” our first EVP, which at the time, we did not know we had someone speaking to us. When reviewing evidence, came across a male voice that said, “Please, I gotta find a way outta here”. (What a great Class A EVP!) Later that evening, I witnessed what I believe to be an apparition moving across the room, where I suddenly became very emotional, crying & then laughing. The covers on our bed at night were being tugged on, as well as we photographed many so called “orbs” and a mist that formed from a picture hanging on the wall moving towards the door. For one of my first investigations, it was an awesome experience and we obtained remarkable evidence of the paranormal.
What is your most memorable investigation so far?
I would have to say the Windsor Hotel, which was my first investigation. We obtained a great deal of evidence in the time we were there, from Class A EVPs, mist forming & moving about the room and the personal experiences we had. Followed by that, it would be The Eagle’s Tavern in Watkinsville, Ga. Our team was down in the basement doing an EVP session, when there was physical movement of one of our video cameras. I asked that
the entity show us one more sign of it’s presence & our camera was knocked off it’s stand, while all the team members were on the other side of the room.
What is your dream investigation?
My dream investigation would probably have to be investigating the famously haunted Waverly Hills Sanitarium in Kentucky, followed by Bobby Mackey’s Music World in Kentucky. There are so many places I would live to go, if money and time allowed!
What is your favorite method of investigating (i.e. EVP sessions, dowsing rods, etc.)?
My favorite method of investigating would have to be conducting EVP sessions. You can debunk a lot of “orbs” in pictures and video, however to hear a voice that was not present at the time of the investigation, is so awesome to me and pretty much can stand alone in evidence. I just wish “they” would answer the questions I want to know the answers to!
Who do you look up to in the paranormal community?
The person(s) I most admire is those paranormal investigators and teams who share paranormal unity. We are all in this field of research for pretty much the same reasons, to find out if there is life after death and why. I believe that paranormal investigators should share information, venues, research methods, equipment possibilities and evidence.
What is your advice to people who want to get involved in paranormal investigation?
My first suggestions in to be strong in your faith, whatever that might be. We never know what we are talking to & what is talking back! I truly believe there are demonic forces out there as well as intelligent and residual energies. Read, study, read, study & then read some more about all things to do with your field of study. Knowledge is power. Never enter places that are restricted and are clearly marked as no trespassing, as this makes all paranormal investigative teams look bad. Do a lot of research and understand what you are reading so you can apply it in the field. Be an investigator, looking for all probable causes of any activity, whether it be man made, nature, or paranormal. Be open-minded, very patient, be supportive of others, other than that, get some minor equipment to start off with & go have fun!
What do you do outside of investigating (family, hobbies, job, etc.)?
I work full time as the Business Manager of a local newspaper, have a fantastic family that supports me in my quest for paranormal knowledge & evidence. In fact, that is where I met my “better half”, as we both investigate the paranormal as well as help out spiritually with a local Demonologist.
