Alexandria Paranormal Investigations is a paranormal research group based in Alexandria Virginia. We offer our services to communities in Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC, West Virginia, North Carolina, Delaware and Pennsylvania. A.P.I. is a serious paranormal research group formed to help communities with hauntings and other unexplained phenomena. Our group consists of professional men and women who take a scientific approach to helping people that are experiencing things they may not understand. We realize people call us as a last resort because they may be thought of as crazy by others. We do not think that and that’s why groups like ours exist. We will investigate and give you answers. We never charge for our services, we are a nonprofit group. All team members volunteer and give their time for free. Most paranormal events can be explained and we have the experience to resolve them.

Alexandria Paranormal Investigations

Founder Michael Robishaw started Alexandria Paranormal Investigations (API)  the logical extension of his lifelong paranormal experiences and fascination with the unexplained. Since then, his northern Virginia team has handled hundreds of private residence cases and explored some of the most active locations in the US, including Waverly Hills (where they had a memorable encounter with the infamous “Creeper”), the Victorian Mansion, Eastern State Penitentiary, and Oaklands Mansion in Laurel, MD. According to Michael, “API uses many different types of scientific equipment on our investigations to collect the best evidence possible. We also use our own common sense and own personal experiences. Having an empathic psychic on our team allows us to have direct communication with spirits or ghosts we find during our investigations.” Michael’s daughter, Sara (Robishaw) Christopher, can sense the presence of spirits and can recognize whether a haunting is residual or intelligent. As an empath, she can read the emotions of others around her, including ghosts. As Founder/Lead Investigator, Michael manages the equipment and supervises the technical staff. He also handles most client interactions and does the bulk of evidence review. Other active members of the API team include William Van Horn III, Mike Rogstad, Shawn Davila, Gary Darr, Mike Cosgrove, Phil Bloxam, Eric Smith, Steve Muskett, and Colin Geraghty. Although Michael has had paranormal encounters throughout his life, he describes himself as a “sensitive,” rather than a true psychic. His experience and expertise in audio and video electronics, including security and surveillance as well as wireless technology, ensures that he stays well grounded in science during investigations and evidence review.

Joni Mayhan Ruin of Souls

More from Joni Mayhan: "Surviving the Soul Collector" ; I was interviewing someone for the book I’m writing when I felt something drift into the room. It was dark and scary, the tone very similar to the one the Soul Collector possessed. In an instant, I was mentally back in that place in my mind. I remembered the way the Soul Collector hovered inches above me as I tried to fall asleep, and the way he caressed my hair as I lay on my side. I thought about the way he threatened to come after my daughter, holding me hostage with his demands, and the way he followed my son from his room one night. My stomach clenched as the sound moved closer. I could imagine him, licking his putrid lips as he imagined taking me over.
