Tessa N Thomas-Peterson
Founder and Director
Tessa wants to live in a world filled with Paranormal Unity, with Hotels whose signs scream “YES!!! WE ARE HAUNTED! COME ON IN!”. A world where the paranormal, the supernatural, aliens and knowledge of such things are commonplace and a force field around her keyboard that repels cats, teenagers, ghosts and sticky-fingered toddlers.
As a paranormal enthusiast with more than 30 years of experience under her belt, she has worked many areas from the Carolinas’ to Washington state, then planting her roots snuggly in the rocky mountains of Colorado. She is a regular contributor to the paranormal field in the Four Corners and surrounding area, giving Haunted Tours, throwing Haunted Parties, as well as lessons on the praranormal and how these crazy tools work. She founded Four Corners Paranormal Investigations in 2012 when tragedy struck her community trying to recover unanswered questions.
When she’s not investigating hauntings, chasing out dark entities and freeing spirits, you can find her gardening, photographing the sky... again, whipping up a delicious treat, running barefoot and answering the question “why” for the eleventy-bajillionth time.
Her first paranormal experience began as an infant and she and her team work to find the evidence for questions so many paranormal enthusiast and not quite believers ask. Is there life after death? Is my house haunted? Am I batshit crazy? Who are these spirits!?! Well, she and her amazing team continue to search and grow in number every year, and will continue to do so until we find the evidence behind these questions.
F.C.P.I. Coordinator & Para-Investigator
I have always been a history buff. Probably the main reason my time in college resulted in a Bachelors in Anthropology and History. My experiences over the years also tended to lead me toward the paranormal activity of the particular place or time period I was studying. A healthy interest in the paranormal did not hurt.
Despite encounters with spirits both here and in other states, I have never considered myself particularly attuned to the paranormal.
Working with Tessa and the rest of the Four Corners Paranormal crew has given me the opportunity to explore a topic that has intrigued me for as long as I can remember. As well as make aware abilities I either suppressed or did not know I had.
I look forward to every investigation as an opportunity to gather evidence of the paranormal.
Melanie Faith Oles-Graham
Having entertained thoughts of starting a ghost hunting group with a few other friends, Jamie and Melanie researched other paranormal groups in the area. Upon finding out that Four Corners Paranormal Investigations was active and participating in National Ghost Hunting Day 2016 they contacted Tessa and practically begged to tag along.
Melanie has been an avid watcher of paranormal TV shows for years, and decided that Ghost Hunting was another hobby she wanted to add to her list. Working with the Durango 9R administration she is very involved in the development of the local school district. Along with Jamie she participates in a medieval reenactment group. With two grown children now (almost) out of the house she is excited to get as much “hunting” done as her busy schedule will allow.
