About Marilsa

As a young child I was fascinated by the unexplainable and my curiosity continues on as an adult. I love to travel and live life at its fullest. I earned a MS degree from University of Wisconsin – Madison where I trained in the scientific method. I especially enjoy filming, infrared (IR) photography, and electronic equipment used to investigate extra-sensory events such as electromagnetic fields (EMF). I have visited Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, PA, Lakeview Cemetery in Madison WI, and Edinburgh Manor in IA. After experiencing unexplainable events, I decided to search for a truth, a reality that I can hold onto, one where a hypothesis is tested and debated based on observations and collected scientific data. When current research and equipment fail, then a new reality can emerge. There are many paranormal groups located in Wisconsin. However, based on my research, I noticed that PIM is a serious, research-based group and the members impressed me with their systematic approach to their investigations. I love their YouTube Channel for their Paranormal Reviews as a great source of information.


Brunder Mansion: It is a beautiful but intense location. The best part was staying over there for 2 nights.


Trans-allegheny Lunatic Asylum, Weston, West Virginia. Build in 1864 designed for 250 patients but housed 2,400 in crowded conditions. They performed Lobotomies, electroshock therapy, and did inhumane treatments to their patients. It is almost as big as the Kremlin. It would be great to investigate. Many investigators have claimed many shadowy figures.

What made you choose PIM over all the other groups out there?

They approach paranormal investigations in a scientific manner. We try to find a rational explanation of an event but we are open to other possible explanations.


I enjoyed reading the book Scientific Paranormal Investigation by Benjamin Radford (2010). It provides great information regarding investigations and other useful pointers for anyone who wants to become a paranormal investigator.
