My name is Rodney Shortridge and I am the founder of Black Diamond Paranormal Society or BDPS. I started this organization to search and find evidence of the paranormal. Through the years I have
experienced and witnessed many unexplained phenomena. I have heard
footsteps and whistling when no one is there. I have been
followed by apparitions and had been awakened by the deceased.
My Uncle shared with me evidence of EVP's (electronic voice phenomena) and ghostly photos that he has collected through the years of investigating the paranormal. We sat down and discussed creating a
paranormal group for this area. Within weeks I came up with BDPS. I have put together a team of paranormal investigators and started in August 2008 investigating the Southwestern Virginia &
Southern West Virginia area.
