Updated 10/24/2016 - The Connecticut Paranormal Research Society is a non-profit organization which is devoted to helping people with paranormal disturbances. Our crew will be presenting as much evidence as possible that is retrieved from ongoing investigations, along with photos sent in from viewers, to raise questions in the paranormal world. We are currently based in the state of Connecticut, but do travel the tri-state area and in parts of Massachusetts. CPRS will do follow ups on any requests for paranormal disturbances which are reported either through e-mail or in person. If you believe you may be the center of a disturbance, please E-mail us!

We must remind you that the equipment used on these investigations, such as cameras, DO NOT have any straps on them. It's one of our most important rules. Another important rule is that there is NO SMOKING allowed by anybody on any type of investigation.
