Case Manager and Investigator

My name is Lynne. I have had a lifelong interest in the paranormal, supernatural, and metaphysical. It all started at the age of 10 when I was electrocuted, died, and brought back. I feel we are all spirits living in flesh and blood. I'm always seeking answers to the unknown as Gods will helps others to understand what they are dealing with. It’s great to be a part of the CTPS team. There is no other place I'd rather be.


Hello Everybody, my name is Ed, I’m currently the Chief Flight Instructor for a collegiate flight training program here in Waco. I hold a Commercial Pilot certificate with over 6000 hours and 35 years combined experience as a flight and ground Instructor, cargo pilot, and aircraft maintenance technician. I have never doubted the existence of an afterlife or the paranormal. As an investigator and educator, my curiosity and thirst is for knowledge and understanding. The what, how, and why of things. What exactly is a ghost? What are they made of? How can it manifest and interact with our physical world? How can it move things? How and why can we hear them? How can they touch us? How can we see them? Why do some souls choose to stay earthbound while so many others move on? These types of questions intrigue me. As a paranormal investigator, I seek answers and definitive proof to these and other unanswered questions. My objective is to document, learn, educate and hopefully assist both the living and those beyond.


My name is Jackie. I have always felt loved ones that have passed on around me. When my four-year-old daughter died, I could not function. After months of crying myself to sleep, God, I believe, allowed Shannon to come to me. I could not touch her, she was misty at a distance. She said, “Mommy, don’t cry anymore, I am O.K.” She smiled and faded away. After that, I was able to go on and take care of my other daughter. The sadness never leaves, but to know for sure that there is that other wonderful place we go to after we pass on helps us move forward.

I have had many experiences with spirits through the years. Being on this team gives me the chance to learn all I can and maybe be of service to others that need to know they are still with us. I am blessed to work with such knowledgeable people who are devoted to this.


My name is Adam and I am very pleased to be included in this group. After many years of investigating independently, I felt that it was time for me to take the next logical step and seek inclusion in an established group such as C.T.P.S. Just to have the opportunity to reach out and help someone in need truly drives me, and I hope to grow and learn even more with every case.


I am Tommy Farris and became very inquisitive about spirit when my Father was in the hospital dying. He had asked who those people where that are standing in the lane of the bright light. I feel I have had visits from dad because my things have been moved. Dad was always trying to keep me on my toes.


My name is Dotty Farris and I became interested in the paranormal since my parents passed away. The night of my fathers passing, he came and sat on the edge of my bed I feel like to let me know all was going to be okay. I have had visits and feel strongly they are my father because I smell strong cigarette smell and dad was a very heavy smoker.

Tech Manager

Hello everyone, my name is Scott. I have recently retired from the Air Force after 24+ years as an electronic technician. I have always been interested in how things work. If something can be explained away then it is not paranormal. So I am the debunker of the team, looking for anything that may cause whatever the investigators have found.

Part Time Investigator

Hi everybody my name is Valerie. I’m currently a Correctional Officer at a Texas State Maximum Security Prison. I’ve been involved in the criminal justice field in one facet or another for most of my life. I have dealt with some pretty nasty people and situations. Since as long as I can remember, I’ve also been overly intuitive and sensitive, a kind of sixth sense. My mother had this ability as well. I have this uncanny ability to recall dreams in great detail. I often dream of people and places I’ve never met or seen in unusual, stressful and challenging situations. I often awake from these dreams drained and with emotions not my own. I’ve always had a sense these dreams were more than just normal dreams maybe perhaps, dare I say, visitations of restless souls trying to show or tell me something. I have wanted to explore this area further ever since I was a child. The opportunity came across when I found CTPS. Since then I have been learning and enjoying every moment. Hopefully, in return, given my law enforcement background, discerning eye, uncanny attention to detail, intuition, toughness and sensitivity I can add another layer of credibility and insight to the investigation process.
