Parapsychologist and Director of East Coast Hauntings Organization (ECHO) Has Opened a Business Office in Historic Downtown Washington

WASHINGTON, N.C. - Do you have ghosts or other paranormal happenings in your home or place of business? If you suspect that youre having a brush with the unexplained, contact Christine Rodriguez. Whether you just need to talk to a professional or want to have a full scientific investigation, Christine Rodriguez and fellow East Coast Hauntings Organization (ECHO) investigators can be of assistance. They will also provide you with oral or written documentation of their results.

No newcomer to exploring the paranormal, Christine Rodriguez holds a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Florida. She is prepared to step into a paranormal case at a moments notice anywhere along the East Coast. 

According to Rodriguez, the question she gets asked the most is how much does an investigation cost? The answer is usually nothing. ECHO is a non-profit, volunteer organization. Occasionally a donation to ECHO for gas expenses is requested when a potentially haunted site is out-of-state. In-state investigations are at no cost to clients who are often benefiting by receiving free peace of mind after dealing with intrusive, unexplained phenomena in their homes. Rodriguez wants to help.

Her investigations are based on scientific principles relating to the laws of physics. Ghosts, ectoplasm, vortices, and certain orb phenomena seem to exist in an Infrared (IR) range that emits electromagnetic energies, which can be analyzed with scientific equipment. Rodriguez's research is based on the theory that potential spirit manifestations may be comprised of plasma energy, a fourth state of matter.

Rodriguez has been directly involved in paranormal research on the subject for four years, operating the successful Paranormal Investigations in Florida (P.O.R.T.A.L.) and now her E.C.H.O. team after a move to North Carolina. She is also the author of nine fiction and nonfiction books, and has served as an instructor for college level writing courses to law enforcement officers in West Palm Beach.

When not conducting client investigations, Rodriguez researches historical sites, cemeteries, and abandoned buildings in search of possible spirit activities. She has worked with clients like the Ft. Lauderdale Historical Society and the Martin County Historical Society, and appeared in the Sci Fi show Proof Positive. Her documentation includes the photos of a ghost dog in a Florida pet cemetery, a shadow ghost in a North Carolina cemetery, and a vortex in a local abandoned farmhouse. Most recently, Rodriguez and team member Sonya Holley helped investigate the Raleigh State Capital. 

East Coast Hauntings Organization is an easily accessible group via their office or Web site. Rodriguez performs professional scientific investigations using modern equipment such as digital and 35 mm cameras, IR video recorders, digital thermometers, Electromagnetic Field meters, IR viewers or monocular scopes, and tape recorders to carefully document every investigation. Though detailing evidential paranormal data is important, people needing assistance are her main concern.
