Welcome to Midwest Shadow Chasers
Exploring the world of the paranormal through research and investigations
Welcome......My name is Sean Tritle, and with over 15 years of studying and researching the paranormal, I started Midwest Shadow Chasers to help people understand the paranormal through investigation and research. Established in 2008 in the heart of East Central Iowa and serving all of the Midwest.
I’ve had a passion for paranormal research since I was a child, and my intensive studying and hard work finally paid off in 2008 when I became a paranormal investigator. I enjoy delving into new fields of research and following the results of my experiments into the uncharted scientific territory. Learn more about my work by checking out my current projects and past publications.
Opinions are split about whether demons actually exist. Some people misperceive spirit activities from ghosts as being demonic activity, but there is a theoretical difference between the two. Demonology is a popular paranormal topic. There are many in the paranormal community who have dedicated their paranormal careers to demonology.
From a faith-based perspective, there is a widespread belief that demons are fallen angels who become the minions of Satan; however, many modern paranormal researchers dismiss this idea. Instead, they believe that what is thought to be a demon is really just an angry ghost or a misunderstood spirit. Many believe that people retain their personalities from life into the afterlife, and a demon may just be a person who was not very nice in life and is continuing on in the afterlife.
The Roman Catholic church remains among the foremost experts on demons, and the church still trains priests as experts who assist people believed to be possessed by demons by performing exorcisms.
Research and Investigations
We still have only a very limited understanding of the paranormal world. Answering questions about this is essential for understanding the role it plays on other scientific processes, and for developing tools to further explore this research avenue with more sensitive measurements and improved data collection.
