Epic Investigators of the Paranormal

Best known for scoring a victory on Zak Bagan's " paranormal investigation , Waverly Hills Edition" (season 1, episode 6), EPIC is a team based along the shores of Lake Erie in the eastern suburbs of Cleveland. The Erie Paranormal Investigators Community (also known as "The Haunted Housewives") is a non-profit group of investigators that bring a fresh perspective to the paranormal community.

Paranormal Challenge is one of my favorite shows!! I have followed the exploits of the Haunted Housewives ever since their victory on the July 22, 2011 episode. The creation of this site was also in 2011, perhaps as a result of their exposure on the Paranormal Challenge. Eventually the domain expired. When I discovered it was available I bought it will the goal of recreating the original site with archived pages. I also added additional information from other outside sources so this homage to the "The Haunted Housewives" would be more complete. If you are a fan of these intrepid women and of paranormal investigations, I hope you will enjoy.

I remember exactly what was happening in my life when I saw the Paranormal Challenge with Theresa, Darla, and Cathi. I had just returned from a meeting with an potential commercial customer to whom I was pitching janitorial supplies; specifically our commercial paper towels+ other paper products such as toilet paper and tissues. The company I work for, CleanItSupply, offers a vast selection of top quality, wholesale paper products and dispensers from trusted name brands such as Procter & Gamble, Kleenex, Cottonelle, Boardwalk, Windsoft, San Jamar, and Palmer, among others. I always tell clients that with the wide variety of wholesale paper products, dispensers and supplies, we offer, you can make us your one-stop shopping place for all of business needs. And by purchasing paper products in bulk your company will save money. Anyway, I had just returned from a hectic day and I needed a distraction, so I turned on the TV and there they (Theresa, Darla, and Cathi) were.

Below is my homage to THE EPIC TEAM!

With over 30 years of collective experience between them their goal is to take paranormal investigation to a higher level of authentication and credibility, offering a complete line of services at no cost to the client. Their results are proof that a balanced and professional team can promote positive outcomes that will further, not hinder, the field of paranormal investigation.

EPIC has enjoyed investigating many historically significant buildings in their home state of Ohio such as the Lake County History Center and Museum, the Ohio State Reformatory, the Prospect Place Mansion, the Anna Dean Farm, the Mansfield Seminary, the Lakeville GrainElevator, the Zoar Tavern, the Greenwood Farm, thePoasttown School, The Hermit Club, andFarnham Manor.

They have also investigated many iconic historical locationsall over the United States such as the Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum (WV), Jerome Grand Hotel (AZ), theHistoric Culver City Hotel , the infamous Queen Mary in Los Angeles, CARed Onion Saloon (AK) and the Lemp Mansion (MO), to name a few.

TheWaverly Hills Sanatorium (KY)was investigated by the EPIC team when they were featured on the Travel Channel's "Paranormal Challenge".



The EPIC team for the Travel Channel's "Paranormal Challenge" consisted of Theresa Argie, Cathi Weber, and Darla Spector.​
