Welcome to the home page of the Connecticut Paranormal Research Society. Founded in 1995 by veteran paranormal researchers Joseph Franke and Orlando Ferrante, the Connecticut Paranormal Research Society is a serious, non-profit organization led by highly skilled, ethical professionals with over 57 years of combined knowledge and experience. Joe and Orlando have worked on hundreds of cases over the years helping frightened families understand and overcome their fears of the unknown.

This site was last updated on 9/18/2018 and will be updated again soon.

Forward and Mission Statement:
Joe began his paranormal studies in 1986 under the expert tutelage of famed paranormal researchers Ed and Lorraine Warren. Orlando began his paranormal journey in 1993 after having paranormal activity in his own home. A case that was investigated by the Warrens. Joe and Orlando continue to consult with Lorraine to this day. The CPRS team is deeply committed to the scientific research and study of paranormal phenomena and is intent on helping people find viable solutions to their problems.

Therefore, it is the mission of the Connecticut Paranormal Research Society to offer education and assistance to those experiencing paranormal disturbances and to present to the world the truth regarding facts and evidence of paranormal activity obtained through skillful scientific investigation and tireless research and documentation.

Although based in Connecticut, the CPRS team proudly serves, but is not limited to, the entire New England area. In fact, the duo regularly welcomes inquiries from and provides consultation to people around the entire world.
