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.
