THE SOCIETY FOR ANOMALOUS STUDIES TEAM
Many of the SAS teams members have known each other for over a decade. Participating in a variety of paranormal groups in Wisconsin and Illinois, this group of friends finally came together in 2011 to form this distinct paranormal research cooperative, the Society for Anomalous Studies.
Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.
CURRENT ACTIVE SAS MEMBERS
Randy, the groups director, has a long standing interest in the paranormal and has been an active investigator for years. Randy has done investigations on aircraft carriers, the Queen Mary and other unique locations. He is the groups go to guy for the use and interpretation of Spirit Box evidence. He is also one of the group's main presenters during our fall season when we present the group's evidence through Power Point presentations at libraries, colleges and other venues.
Cindy’s original concentration was EVP and voice analysis but after over 20 years this has expanded to include many aspect of Instrumental TransCommunication. She has participated in several EVP studies, written articles and at one point she owned more the 30 different audio recorder to pursue paranormal studies. Currently Cindy is designing and running several different ITC experiments, using both audio and video sources. Group members have participated in some of these experiments and captured some stunning results.
Jared has been a dedicated member of the group since he came on board in 2016. Always there to unload equipment, run cable, review data and pretty much run any piece of equipment we ask him to. We try to always keep a camera or camcorder in Jared’s hands since, from the beginning of his time with SAS, he has seemed to have a knack for capturing strange and anomalous photographs and video. A natural born ghost hunter.
Adding new investigators to the team is not something we do very often but in the case of Michelle we jumped at the chance of having her come on board. Michelle had investigated with many SAS investigators and we already knew her to be a careful and objective investigator. With an interest in experimental audio communication Michelle skills with the SB11 and Ovilus 5 have already produced some great captures on SAS investigations. For the past few years Michelle has developed an uncanny ability to capture full voiced EVPs and be called out by name, numerous times, during Portal and Ghost Box sessions.
Pam is an extraordinary paranormal investigator and a great team member. She is also a paranormal equipmentphile and enjoys trying new equipment and techniques. Aside from having a large inventory of equipment she has a deep understanding on how that equipment works and years of experience on how to use it during a paranormal investigation. Additionally she has a deep respect for investigation protocols and procedures and looks at the investigation and resulting data with a critical eye. A kind and conscientious person she is always looking to assist other team member and her generosity, enthusiasm and paranormal knowledge make her a natural to assist the public during our SAS events.
Having had her own personal paranormal experiences, Karen came onboard with an intense interest to learn more about the paranormal world. SAS is her first experience with a group approach to investigations but she jumped right in by purchasing and learning about equipment, attending training and not shying away from investigating some notorious places. Her sincere empathy with the spirits she interacts with have resulted in some interesting activity and evidence especially when recording for EVP or using other forms of spirit voice capture. We are excited to have her onboard and are looking forward to see her skills develop as she grows as a SAS investigator.

Our friend and SAS team member, Gene Hermon, was laid to rest on May 11th. He left us shortly after the team had returned from one of the best fun trips we had ever had. In true Gene fashion he had kept us on our toes and laughing with his quick wit and punchy one liners.
Gene had been investigating the paranormal for some time, with his daughter and team member Pam, before we asked him to join SAS. Gene was a seeker who loved investigating which he always did with a good dose of humor and a grounded, levelheaded approach to the paranormal one can only get from living a rich and well lived life. He investigated with us at big locations like Madison Seminary and Sheboygan Insane Asylum to working as part of the team at our historical society locations.
Our condolences go to Pam, who was not only his daughter but his co-conspirator in their many adventures together. We will miss you Gene.
