LIPI Meets TAPS: Paranormal Weekend #1
Warwick, RI

Fairfield Marriott Hotel, Warwick RI

In May 2006 Long Island Paranormal investigators took part in the first TAPS Paranormal Weekend. This weekend event was held at the Fairfield Marriot hotel in Warwick, RI and was hosted by Darkness Radio and The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS). LIPI members had the opportunity to meet TAPS members and speak at length on a variety of paranormal subjects and topics of paranormal research and investigation. Long Island Paranormal Investigators joined TAPS members in a group investigation of the hotel, which is allegedly haunted (Click Here to read about all our investigations at this hotel).

The weekend began on Friday May 5th with a presentation by TAPS members Keith and Carl Johnson ("the Twins"). They gave a very insightful lecture on demonic hauntings & possessions and a brief discussion of the vampire legends of New England. The brothers took turns presenting amazing (and powerful) video and audio evidence obtained during both personal and TAPS group investigations of demonic hauntings. Keith and Carl presented their list of the characteristics of a demonic haunting or possession. They defined what an inhuman haunting is, and provided some ideas and insights for dealing with an inhuman demonic haunting situation. They also presented several dramatic EVPs obtained on their investigations. After the lecture Long Island Paranormal Investigators members spoke with Keith and Carl Johnson regarding their EVP research. The Johnson's offered their assistance to LIPI if we should encounter a demonic haunting.
