Aaron Sulser – Founder and Lead Investigator

Aaron started Dark Alley Paranormal Investigators in 2008 in a response to the growing popularity of paranormal investigation and ghost hunting. Aaron wanted to form a group that anyone could join for a thrill seeking adventure.

His background in paranormal research began with a trip to the Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville Kentucky. His group at that time consisted of 5 others and was able to investigate the entire building by themselves. Aaron heard strange sounds, captured EVP’s and was at one point “touched” by something that wasn’t visible.

Aaron returned to Waverly a few months later and again experienced some things that could not be explained.


Marcie Hoerig – Co-Founder and Lead Investigator for the Louisville, Kentucky chapter

Beginning in childhood with an experience of being visited by her grandfather after he had
passed away, the paranormal has always been a part of Marcie’s life. Instead of pretending these things don’t exist, she has accepted the fact that there is more out there than meets the eye. If you just open your mind to the possibility you would be surprised at what you might find. With that open mind, however, it is equally important to Marcie that one also uses reasoning when investigating reports of the paranormal. She likens it to being a paranormal Sherlock Holmes although her family says she is more like Velma from Scooby-Doo.
Her motto: “A mystery is a mystery, paranormal or not, which needs solving.”
