Girls/Guys Paranormal Investigators

June 30, 2010 on 9:15 am | In Article | 2 Comments

From time to time I hear of paranormal groups that start up locally.  When I can I try to get information on them so we are aware who is in the area so when asked we can report that there is a group and they might be called upon to investigate.  Well there is a new group Girls/Guys Paranormal Investigation.  GGPI is a Wyoming based paranormal group, made up of 6 members Paula Birrell, Hally Tomich, Dustin “Duds” Owens, Stan Tomich, Zack Owens, Josh Dillard, and Devin Shinkle and some guest investigators.  They are a Non-Profit group set out to help people in need of their services.  In hopes to help find out what really goes bump in the night.  Sometimes it’s paranormal sometimes it’s not.  If you have questions or would like their help feel free to contact them.

GGPI have done investigations in Rock Springs, Green River, Bryan, and Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado.  They are a young group and have only been in existence for two years.   Gradually members have been added and the team is developing.

During our last October Ghost Walk, one participant Paul came forward and said she had captured a full apparition in the stacks.  We were very excited and asked if she would share the photo with us.  She said she would but for some time we lost track of each other.  Just recently she stopped in and shared the website for their group and said the photo was listed there.

I have seen several pictures taken by others that I was not clear what they were seeing.  This photo however is clear to me.  I have heard stories of staff and patrons seeing the “man in the top hat” for a few years now.  I have never seen him myself.  All I can say is WOW.  Paula Birrell took this photo after having a strange feeling and looked down the stacks and saw a dark shadow.  This is the best photo we have received to date.  If there are others out there we have not seen them.


Original Photo


Do you see the man to the left?  He is just this side of the bright reflection. He is in dark suit, white dress shirt, and top hat.

Cropped and enlarged photo.

Special thanks to Paula Birrell for sharing her photo with me.

  1. I’ve seen this top hat shadow man several times, he keeps following me no matter where I went or where I moved. He once even passed through me which left me disoriented an seeing other strange an terrifying things all in one single night…i understand its an bit hard to explain but it simply won’t leave me be.
