Betty Dupont


As a result of having experiences such as living in a haunted apartment, an apparition standing just feet away, to having a surreal UFO experience all in my early 20’s, my life’s path forever changed.  I work full-time in a government job, but nights and weekends are spent serving others who are going through difficult times or just solving a really good mystery whether it’s spirits, cryptids or UFO’s experiences. My beliefs are that events are put before us to lead us in the direction we are supposed to go whether it’s personal for myself or for the client. I feel it’s vital to disseminate what’s real, explainable, to what cannot be scientifically accounted for and to occasionally step back and look for the overall message.

I was blessed having raised 3 sons with my husband who has been and continues to be my rock in life. Being able to lead this team who has become a second family, has led to years of rewarding satisfaction and joy, you won’t find better people with more positive upbeat attitudes and I am indeed lucky to be a part of it.

I live in Underhill VT and enjoy the mountain views, rivers and lakes. In my free time I also enjoy fishing, movies, and scrapbooking. I’m passionate about my job where I work on a solutions team and enjoy problem solving and building connections.

As a child, I grew up in an old house where the previous owner had tragically passed away. It was thought that this person’s spirit was responsible for walking back and forth upstairs each night when no one else was there. There were other unexplained events that intensified as I moved into my own home. This greatly sparked my interest in the paranormal and my wanting to help other people as well. I’m very excited to to investigate the paranormal with a team of professionals who share the same curiosity and interests as I do. 

Karen Keene


I live in Stowe, VT. I am married, and have two teenage sons. I love to travel, garden, hike, paddle-board, walk with my dog and hang out with my family. Since I was young I have always been fascinated by family ghost stories and anything to do with the paranormal. That curiosity has never gone away. I was a property tax assessor for over 17 years and love old homes and the stories that go along with them. In 2006, my youngest son had an unexplained experience in a small rural cemetery involving another child only he could see. That re-ignited my curiosity.  After that I knew I wanted to be a paranormal investigator. ​

I have been with PI-NE for 11 years. In recent years I began learning more about cryptozoology and in 2020 I became an investigator with the BFRO. I am proud to be part of such a professional team that is client focused and has a wealth of knowledge to help you with your paranormal issues.

Lindsay Stevens 


I am a very proud mother of 3 wonderful children, born and raised in the beautiful hills of Vermont. I feel fortunate to be able to wake up to the beauty of the green mountains daily. I enjoy fishing, camping and anything outdoors in my spare time. I have always loved a good mystery, or ghost story. Growing up in Vermont as a child, we would venture out searching for big foot or Champ. My interest in cryptozoology peeked when I witnessed a sighting of Champ as a child.

The paranormal has always been a passion of mine, and discovering of the unknown is amazing in my eyes. I love investigating the paranormal and making contact with the other side. There is so much that is unknown to us and my goal is to give clients the help and understanding they are seeking. Knowledge is everything and I enjoy learning new things pertaining to the paranormal field.

Kathy Eastman


I live in Sutton, VT, married with 8 step kids and have many grandchildren. I have lived most of my life in Vermont and love the views this state offers.  My paranormal experiences started when I was a small child growing up in an old colonial home. The home was being constantly renovated and never fell short of giving us new haunting experiences. The neighbor’s house where my friends grew up also experienced paranormal activity as well. Since that time in my life I have had a lifetime of experiences.

I enjoy riding my motorcycle. I love my dogs, photography, making jams, watercolor painting and get-togethers with friends. I learn everything I can about the paranormal. I like to read paranormal books and watch the TV shows.

I am excited to be a member of PI-NE and hope to help people in need by seeking answers to paranormal questions and problems. 

Kevin Cheney


I live in Hinesburg Vermont and am a husband and a father of two. I love to travel and visit places I’ve never been along with going to see my favorite baseball team, the Boston Red Sox. One of my favorite places to hang out is with my family at my camp on the shores of Lake Champlain and swim, kayak, and canoe.

My curiosity of the supernatural and unexplained started at a young age. I grew up in a large home in rural Virginia that was very active. Each of us in the family had experiences that we still talk about to this day. Growing up in Virginia also made me become a Civil War history buff since I had access to so many battlefields.

I am honored to be a part of PI-NE and work with such a fine team of investigators to help solve peoples paranormal experiences and questions.

Steve Sicard


I am married to the love of my life. I have one daughter and two step daughters. We have three grandchildren. We also have two rescue dogs, Toby and Sophie. They keep us busier then most toddlers.

I have always been fascinated with the paranormal. I prefer watching SYFY and any paranormal programming. Growing up, I heard stories of alien sightings from adults sitting around the dinner table. I listened to the stories intently, and found them fascinating to me. As a teenager, I had an unexplained experience. While traveling on the interstate, after going to the drive in, my cousins and I saw a bright beam shine down on the car. No matter how fast we went, the light stayed with us. It disappeared as fast as it appeared.

As an adult, I have had several experiences that have peaked my interest. Investigating the paranormal has always been intriguing to me. I believe technology helps us prove there are spirits and entities from the other side. This can be loved ones that have passed away or others that need to be crossed over. I think helping people find answers to why they are experiencing abnormal activity is the most rewarding. The more we understand the unexplained, the more it opens up to more questions. I believe, working with PI-NE that has a diverse group of experienced investigator’s is the best way to help others explain the paranormal.

Ed Riddell


I am a Husband of a lovely strong woman, Father of two smart gifted sons, professional with LEO/Mental Health experience, a seeker of the paranormal in all forms, stalwart voice for truth and justice, and above all a follower of Jesus Christ my Savior. I was born in Oregon, have lived in Southern California, traveled in various places throughout North America and have chosen Vermont as my home since 2006.

My paranormal journey began as a child by losing several close relatives to death, including my biological father. I also believe that I saw a flying UFO in a brief moment while traveling in Death Valley. Those experiences have left me wanting more answers and has pulled me deeper into seeking evidence and understanding all areas of the paranormal.

I am grateful for my fellow PI-NE members who educate and support my journey of discovery. I could not be more blessed than to have been led to this amazing group of talented investigators who are committed to each other and to spending enormous amounts of time and energy just for the opportunity to get a glimpse of what hides beyond our normal everyday experiences.
