Welcome to Fringe Paranormal!

Fringe Paranormal Investigations was formed in the spring of 2009 by a band of researchers with a common goal.....to investigate claims of unexplained activity using scientific methods. We maintain a skeptical yet open mindset. While our focus is on haunted locations and ghosts, we also maintain an interest in cryptozoology, UFOs and other alleged paranormal phenomena. The Fringe team strives to develop new theories and test current hypotheses in the field. We believe that all theories and work methods are open to scrutiny. Using logic and technology we set out to find plausible explanations for claims. Anything we can not explain is labeled as possible evidence of paranormal activity. Fringe operates out of Toledo, Ohio and has traveled as far as Louisville, Ky in search of the unexplained.

Our mission....simply put, to explain the unexplained.

Join the Fringe Team!
Fringe is looking to add one or two quality members to our team. The ideal candidate should live in or close to Northwest Ohio, have a drive to explore and be motivated, and bring something to the table. We are especially seeking a person who wouldn't mind putting them self out there to pursue case leads. After all, the more leads we get the more we all get to investigate. Experience preferred but not necessary but we do ask that you have weekends available (we usually try investigate on Saturdays once per month). Remember you only get one chance at a good first impression. Thanks, Director Don
