Black Hills Paranormal Investigations

Black Hills Paranormal Investigators

BHPI was founded in 2007 and is proud to serve the Black Hills and its surrounding communities. Since our founding, we have grown into a professional and trusted team of paranormal researchers. In the beginning, we set out believing that to be taken as a serious paranormal investigations team it was imperative we set high standards for ourselves and our practices. Our guiding principles–critical thinking, common sense, continuing education, and a healthy dose of skepticism–have served our clients and us well.

We believe in these principles so much that they are reflected in our bylaws. Each of our investigative team is required to maintain an updated copy. Anyone who becomes a member of BHPI must pass a thorough interview process and then successfully pass a mandatory probationary period. A BHPI investigator must not only know, but must demonstrate their knowledge of proper investigatory procedures.

If you are looking for a paranormal investigations team that strives for the truth, then BHPI is that team. Every aspect of our investigations are free of charge.

We do not charge for our investigations!

BHPI does not enter any investigation trying to prove paranormal activity. We first look for reasonable explanations. We never use paranormal means to investigate the paranormal. This means we do not employ crystals, dowsing rods, talismans, or Ouija boards. We use electro-magnetic field meters, Infrared cameras, digital audio recorders, and common sense.

We also understand that it is difficult to talk to complete strangers about paranormal experiences. Know that BHPI does not judge. We promise you that your case will be handled with understanding, professionalism, and confidentiality.

If you are experiencing activity that you believe is paranormal in nature then Black Hills Paranormal Investigations is the investigative team for you. All of our services are free of charge. Go to our Contact Us page to send us a message. Our lead investigator Maurice ‘Mo’ Miller or our case manager Scott Remboldt will contact you promptly.

Unlicensed nuclear accelerators. Just don’t cross the streams.

😂 Love it! We would need to find someone who could build it!

I can’t think of the name of it but it’s the deal like from a Kinect system that maps figures

Cody, we already have an SLS/Kinetic Camera. It is a really neat addition. Seeing a figure in front of you that you did not realize was there is really eye opening.

I would love to see it sometime!

Laser grids?

Kelly, we have two types already. The standard green dot laser grid and also one that shoots an actual grid--great for hallways and long skinny rooms.

Geobox or Wonderbox

Some Proton Packs for when you encounter DEMONS!!


Ouija board

👏 nice!

Roger, we already have two Geo-phones. They don't look as cool as this one though.


Darla, we have one. It is really interesting to use.

Why didn't we use it at the Adams house?

There are some things we cannot use during the tours. Some of our equipment is cumbersome and also not everyone would get the chance to see what we are looking at making it a bit unfair for other folks on tours especially as we only have one of these. Using our hand-held pieces is far easier and the folks on the tours can use those. I hope that makes sense. Just like we will not put out our IR DVR cameras due to all the cables required.


John, we have an Ovilus and use it on the tours with some crazy results sometimes.

We are thinking about a Boo-buddy for investigations that have claims of small children. A trigger object AND it has EMF detectors on it that will light up if something comes near.

My old school radio with the antennas cut still work pretty good just screaming thru the am dial but some times we get a lot of golden oldies lol

Roger, we got some crazy stuff with our spirit box during a cave investigation a month back. We were 200ft or so below ground. I did not expect anything at all. The fact that we actually got voices on that was crazy AND they were answers to questions one of our investigator was asking--crazy stuff.

Nice nice i usually go for names or simple yes or no for answers with the spirit box!!

Define "toy" LOL

We did a little photo shoot with Deadwood History before the tours. A HUGE Thank You to the good folks at Deadwood History and Chelsey Bauer for their infinite patience during the shoot. Not only did Chelsey do a great job taking the photos she toughed it out through our often bouts of ADHD -- trying to keep us focused on photos instead of us trying to get our investigation on. ...
