Mike Fontaine - Lead Investigator 

    Mike Fontaine grew up in Western Massachusetts. From a young age, he was a fan of horror every since his mother let him watch A Nightmare on Elm Street with her. Combine that love with the creepy New England fall, the old cemeteries, and library book after library book taken out on ghosts, the unexplained, and the occult, he knew he had to do more.  Mike is the scout on the team and is often sent in first to high-level and abandoned locations.   

Fidel DeHaro - Investigator 

   At 24  years of age, Deharo became a youth pastor for a church heavily rooted in Pentecostalism. During this time, DeHaro coordinated a number of drama productions for young adults in the United States, and Mexico. DeHaro taught young people and adults about the need to engage in spiritual warfare in order to battle satanic influences, demonic activity, soul ties, strongholds, and evil spirits outside of the natural realm. He was also further trained in the doctrine of charismatic evangelism, which emphasized the baptism of the Spirit as evidenced by speaking in tongues, the need to cast out demons, engage in prophetic utterances and interpretations, and believe in divine healing. DeHaro experienced a rapid growth in his ministry, and before long he was invited to speak on a variety of Christian television shows throughout his young career.

DeHaro is trained to use a number of ghost hunter tools, including Electronic Magnetic Field (EMF) readers, IR Temperature meters, night vision cameras, audio recorders, and infrared cameras. DeHaro believes that his life work is to educate others on paranormal activity and to find life’s answers
