For eighteen years Leon Wilkes has studied the paranormal and demonology. At an early age he found that his love for the paranormal would only heighten as he watched the show “Unsolved Mysteries.” This was the starting point for his career in the paranormal, preternatural studies and investigations.
When he turned the age of 21, he started researching and studying the paranormal field in which it culminated to him co-founding a paranormal team out of Georgia. During this time, he was able to work with many people throughout the paranormal field that shaped him into the investigator that he is today. He directly acknowledges that the team and people that he worked with in his early years of paranormal research had a great impact on him and he thanks them everyday.
Today Leon is the only one being tutored by Dave Considine, Religious Demonologist.
During his later years with the team that he co-founded, he was getting a calling from God to do more in this field than just investigations. In fact, this calling was so strong that he could not ignore it, and finally started to study the field of demonology and founded a ministry that helps people who are under demonic attack called Where Angels Dare Ministries.
He studies this field from a religious perspective and deeply studies the Biblical truths that surround this field. He also studies the workings of the previous demonologists that had the greatest amount of impact on how we should help people from a scientific and religious standpoint.
He has worked with other well-known demonologists throughout the nation and has consulted on cases as far away as Scotland, while having time to be a research analyst on the movie set of “The Legend of Seven Toe Maggie.” He has appeared on internet shows such as Family Spirit, Demonology Today, The Grand Dark Conspiracy, Demonology Today, Voices Carry, Webb Paranormal Radio Network and Psychic Tena Marie Weber Show. He even speaks at Paranormal conventions.
With his dedication to the field of demonology and to God, he vows to never stop at what he does and this is to help combat the forces of evil by Biblical truth and to empower people to use their God given authority over Satan and his forces.
Leon has served in the United States Air Force for the past fifteen years, attaning the rank of Technical Sergeant. Leon states that, “seeing people get help at the end of the day is just what keeps me going.” His dedication to the spiritual warfare battle is intense, and he travels all over the Southeast to aid individuals.
Leon gives all the praise and glory to God Almighty for aligning all the people in his life that has taken the time to help him in his studies of demonology but, more importantly he also thanks god every day for bringing into his life his wife and four adorable children. They are the people who continually ground him so that he will not get sucked into his studies of demonology too much to where it consumes him.

Miranda Young, creator and star of the hit web series Ghost Biker Explorations, is an experienced paranormal investigator, who has turned her passion for photography, history, URBEX, and motorcycles into a unique and popular show that highlights history, legends, mysteries and the unexplained.
Growing up in Robbins, Tennessee, a small town nestled in the Appalachian Mountains and an hour away from the closest metropolitan area, Miranda’s immersion into folklore, ghost stories, and mysteries began at an early age through reading library books and exploring abandoned locations.
Her interests were further fostered through long conversations with her 90-year-old grandmother, who would tell her stories about ghosts and legends from the past. While continuing to research legends and ghost stories, Miranda earned a degree from Middle Tennessee University and began a career in marketing, graphic design and photography, which afforded her an employment position with a prestigious, international photography company. Due to her expertise in photography and graphic design, in 2013, Miranda was approached by a coworker who asked that she examine several photographs purported to show captured paranormal phenomena.
The coworker was the founder and lead investigator on a 4 person paranormal investigation team, and he deferred to Miranda’s background and knowledge of photography and photographic elements to determine the legitimacy of these initial photographs. This initial investigation led to subsequent investigations along with Miranda being formally voted in as a member of the team.
While Miranda and the team traveled throughout the country investigating at private residences and at well-know paranormal “hotspots”, Miranda never strayed far from her fascination of exploring abandoned locations, photography, and motorcycle riding, and she would often embark on solo adventures to engage in these endeavors.
Telling the stories of the history, the legends, and the ghostly tales of lesser known locations through her photographs, blogs and posts on her social media pages, interest in Miranda and her personal explorations grew. Miranda, in a joke with a friend, mentioned that she should call herself “The Ghost Biker”, to which her friend exclaimed “I’d watch that show!”. Encouraged further by friends, family, and fans, Miranda designed a logo and began creating a plan to film and produce a new and unique show entitled: Ghost Biker Explorations.
GBE was designed around the concept of highlighting Miranda, along with her motorcycle, as she travels to various towns to figure out the mysteries within the ghost stories and legends that have been passed down throughout the generations.
Miranda’s popularity within the biker community has also grown rapidly, with Harley Davidson contacting her directly with an invitation to host her Season 2 Release Party and Meet and Greet at the Harley Davidson location in Chattanooga, TN. She was also approached and asked to wear and endorse motorcycle leathers, armored jackets and luggage for a west coast company. Motorcycle groups from across the country have also contacted Miranda in an attempt to schedule her for guest appearances and to participate in and/or coordinate motorcycle rides and bike nights at historic locations.
Currently, you can follow along with Miranda and Ghost Biker Explorations on the Ghost Biker Explorations Facebook page, YouTube channel and the GBE website. Miranda is also active on Instagram (Runaway_Vixen) and on Twitter.

Ramiro Galvan, FOUNDER – PARANORMAL RESEARCH INVESTIGATIONS (PRI) IN EL PASO TX, retired in 2018 after 22 years of working as a technical field engineer for AT&T. Prior to that, he worked as a Texas state employee IT support and also served with the US Army with his last duty assignment in nuclear operations.
Beginning as a fourth grader, Ramiro developed a desire to explore the unknown, looking for answers. His interest in the paranormal grew and in 2002, through trial and error, became an independent paranormal investigator assisting other groups when called upon.
Since then, he founded Paranormal Research Investigations (PRI)-El Paso and has embarked on some remarkable cases. PRI approaches investigations as “skeptics” and always look for rational explanations.
Utilizing that approach, PRI has investigated numerous locations covering four states that included federal and local law enforcement agencies, local government entities, museums, historical sites, businesses and residences.
PRI’s investigations have been so compelling that Travel Channel’s “Ghost Adventures” worked with Ramiro, including guest appearances, and filmed several episodes of locations that PRI investigated.
Ramiro conducts paranormal training classes so others can learn and develop a pool of “qualified investigators” to draw upon as necessary. Ramiro’s investigative methodology is based on finding rational explanations for reported phenomena and for the metaphysical, has learned to work with “proven intuitives and psychics” in the field.
Since the majority of investigations occur along the borderland area, Ramiro, along with his team frequently speak Spanish during investigations.
He has encountered phenomena ranging from “negative energies”, “attempts of channeling through him” and “attachments” to name a few.
PRI was featured in a book, “THE ANGEL CHRONICLES: An Extraordinary Experience” by Richard F. Chacon. It chronicles a family devastated by the tragedy and loss of their son and how they finally accepted it (after ten plus years).
Ramiro and his team assisted the family in coming to terms with their grief in both their new and old homes, where, as the author states, “In both cases, there was significant evidence to indicate that he was still around, as were other energies”.
PRI also works with non-profit agencies, at no charge, to assist with their fundraising activities by hosting “ghost tours”. Ramiro is always looking for innovative methods of documenting reported paranormal phenomena.
Last but not least, Ramiro’s efforts are supported by his loving wife and three sons.
