The BHPI team


    



member
Mark Shadley
Lead Investigator

I am a retired police sergeant from Southern California. My interest in the paranormal field was peaked over thirty years ago when I experienced something I believe to be paranormal. Because of my background I am an open-minded skeptic that believes there are often reasonable explanations for what some people claim are paranormal experiences. I am an author and co-wrote Haunted Deadwood: A True Wild West Ghost Town. I am currently writing a crime/mystery novel.

Maurice 'Mo' Miller
Co-Lead Investigator/Case Manager

My interest in the paranormal was fostered at an early age by my mother and grandmother who were very much into ghosts/spirits and the like. Fortunately for me the interest never waned. My artistic background compels me to look at life from a slightly different perspective than most. My desire is to find out what all this is about. Hopefully through my exploration of this phenomena I will be able to share with others what I have and will learn. If I am not at work as a designer/sign guy or investigating I am probably playing golf or working hard to create a masterpiece.

My interest in the paranormal comes from personal experiences and the realization that others share that interest.  My involvement in the group is made possible by my incredibly understanding wife, Amanda.  Outside of BHPI, I am a huge baseball fan and history buff. I love local history as well as Civil War and World War II history.

Charles Blanchard
Investigator/Public Relations and Research Assistant

I'm from New Mexico, originally. I moved to the Black Hills 2 years ago with my wife Rachel. I was a gunners mate 2nd class in the Navy and now I'm working in Rapid City. I joined and was accepted to BHPI to look for proof, for myself and others, to the questions we have about the paranormal.

Rachel Blanchard
Investigator/Public Relations and Research Assistant

My interest in the paranormal started when I was in high school, after seeing a full body apparition. I have been searching to see some thing like it ever since. My husband and I moved to the Black Hills in 2010 from southern Minnesota. We have had the privileged of getting to follow our passion for the paranormal with the great folks in BHPI. When we aren't ghost hunting Charles and I enjoy riding our motorcycle in the beautiful Black Hills.

Peggy Shadley
Investigator


I am a retired Forensic specialist that worked for a Southern California police department. My experience working with evidence of all kinds gives me a unique perspective in the proper procedures in collecting alleged paranormal evidence. I have been intrigued with the paranormal and the unexplained and feel my background brings a scientific approach to the field.

Deb Sutton
Investigator


Since I was eight years old, I have experienced paranormal activity. In 2000 I joined a paranormal group in Minnesota. I moved to South Dakota in 2008 where I enjoy among other things hunting artifacts such as fossils and rocks. I enjoy fishing and camping. I get great enjoyment riding throughout the United States on my Heritage. I joined BHPI in 2013 and my goal is to continue learning about the paranormal. I have a strong desire to help others who might be distressed about the paranormal.

Scott Remboldt
Investigator

I've always had an interest in the paranormal from as far back as I can remember. I can't say that I've had that life changing experience that others have encountered. I've been with BHPI for two years. Prior to that, I conducted freelance paranormal investigations on my own. Since becoming a member of BHPI, I have become more of a skeptic. BHPI is a close knit team with varying beliefs and experiences, which in the long run makes us very good at what we do.

Holly Kreun
Investigator in Training

The desire to become a paranormal investigator began after my child started telling me and her father about numerous experiences she was having (She was four at the time). My husband and I were also experiencing strange activity, so we called BHPI. They brought us some peace of mind and they were able to provide us with evidence that proved we were not imagining things. My child has learned to face her fears. She is proud of her mom for being so brave for wanting to help other families.
