ABOUT NJ Paranormal Investigations:
Feeling uneasy in your house? Hearing unexplained sounds and are unable to find any logical explanation? Think it may be paranormal in nature? We can help!
New Jersey Paranormal Investigations uses the most advanced technology in the field of paranormal research to document the events that have been occurring. We either prove the events or we find a logical explanation to solve these situations.

We do this using the scientific method of a step-by-step approach consisting of:

  1. Identifying and defining a problem.
  2. Accumulating relevant data.
  3. Formatting a tentative hypothesis.
  4. Objectively interpreting the results.
  5. Repeating these steps until an acceptable solution is found.

We have over twelve years of experience in the field. New Jersey Paranormal Investigations has an outreach beyond our scope which includes demonologists, clergy, and parapsychologists who we consult and work with to find the best possible outcome for you and your family.

Barry Ruggiero has been investigating the paranormal for over twelve years. His area of expertise centers around hauntings and spirits with the application of basic physics. Scientific instruments which measure fluctuations in the environment, enables NJPI to document these occurrences. Infrared surveillance systems are utilized along with high end audio equipment to capture any abnormalities for documentation purposes.

Barry has been featured on the Woodbridge, NJ television network hosted by Mayor John McCormick to discuss the history and paranormal events of the township. He was also interviewed by News 12 NJ about the paranormal field highlighting historic landmarks known for activity. The Star Ledger newspaper did a feature article on his investigation on the Hannah Caldwell House where it is believed Mrs. Caldwell's spirit still resides at the site of her murder.

Ludlow Thorston-A Celebration of Life Gallery Showing

Date: November 2nd, 2019

Time: 2:00 PM- 5:00 PM

Ludlow Thorston passed away on September 20, 2019, at the age of 92. "Lud" was born in Irvington, NJ and showed a love for art at a young age. He was a graduate of the Newark School of Fine and Industrial Arts and served in the US Army during the Korean War where he was stationed in Evansville, Indiana. After his discharge, he attended NYU where he ultimately earned his Master's Degree. Lud taught art in the public schools with the majority of his tenure at Parsippany Hills High School. Watercolor painting was his passion, and with the help of his wife, Nell, they opened the first Ludlow Thorston Gallery in Seaside Park, NJ in 1979. A gallery in Bay Head and Island Heights, NJ would soon follow. The Island Heights gallery remains in operation. Lud was a unique, talented, and thoughtful man. He appreciated life's simple pleasures and taught others to do the same. Ludlow was predeceased by his daughter, Kim Romano, and is survived by his wife, Nell, his daughter, Lauren Lipinski and her husband, Steve, his grandchildren, Christopher, Marissa and Zachary; as well as his stepdaughter, Karen Rauner, and her sons, Mark and James. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, November 2, 2019, from 2 to 5 pm at the Ocean County Artists' Guild, 22 Chestnut Avenue, Island Heights. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Lud's name to Ocean Mental Health Services, 160 Atlantic City Blvd., Bayville, NJ 08721 or The Retreat, 1221 Wayzata Blvd., East, Wayzata, MN 55391.

His grandson wrote a wonderful tribute to his grandfather. You can read it here:
