BHPI News and Notes
What is BHPI?
Black Hills Paranormal Investigations (BHPI) is a group of dedicated people,
investigating claims of paranormal activity in the Black Hills and surrounding area.
What is involved in paranormal investigations?
Many groups have different
practices, but ours are basic, and proven to be legitimate. We use
tools to try and debunk claims of
activity. Many of us are believers, but, we have realized that about
80% of all claims of paranormal can be explained by
everyday occurrences. We go into a case with open minds, with the
intent of helping people to understand what they are
dealing with and how they can best deal with it.
Will BHPI remove whatever "entity" I may have?
No. BHPI is simply here to try
and document paranormal activity. If someone would like an "entity"
removed, we can give tips on how to
try to "take back your house (or building)" or we
can put in contact with someone who could help you rid your residence
any unwanted presence.
Does BHPI charge for investigations?
No. BHPI is a completely free
service to the community. We do not charge for any facet of our
services. The people at BHPI cover their
own expenses because they are so
passionate about the service provided. We do accept donations, however,
we do not ask for them.
What can BHPI do for my desire of privacy from the public?
We will do anything and
everything you request. BHPI
understands that there are some cases where people do not want to draw
attention to themselves, especially with a sensitive
subject like the paranormal. BHPI offers varying levels of privacy when
it comes to
investigations. Should you decide you want only BHPI and yourself to
know about anything that happens, that will be accommodated. If
would be alright with us releasing evidence as long
as we keep the address, names, city name, faces, etc. out, we will
that. BHPI will work with its clients on
any detail they may want as far as the investigation goes. Don't be
afraid to ask for special
