PLYMOUTH – The founders of the Connecticut Paranormal Research Society are coming to town hall Oct. 6, and Terryville Public Library has opened registration for their program.

The program will discuss past cases and their history with Ed and Lorraine Warren.

The program will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. at town hall at 80 Main Street. Connecticut Paranormal Society co-founders Joseph Franke and Orlando Ferrante will discuss their backgrounds as paranormal investigators “helping frightened families understand and overcome their fears of the unknown.” They will also share video and audio clips from their investigations, some of which contain unexplained phenomena.

“I’m really excited about it,” said Cheri Cowles, reference librarian at Terryville Public Library. “Joseph, at one point, worked under Ed and Lorraine Warren. He and Orlando will be speaking about several cases they have investigated around the area.”

The late Ed & Lorraine Warren were prominent paranormal investigators and authors who claimed to have investigated more than 10,000 cases, many of which have been adapted into films. Some of their more famous cases include “Annabelle” and “The Amityville Haunting.” Edward Warren was a self-taught demonologist and Lorraine Warren professed to be a clairvoyant and medium.

For many years, the Warrens kept a museum in Monroe, CT which contained several haunted artifacts. Ed Warren died in 2006 and Lorraine Warren died in 2019. Their museum has since closed.

The Connecticut Paranormal Research Society was founded in 1993. According to the group’s Facebook page,, “the Connecticut Paranormal Research Society is a serious, non-profit organization dedicated to helping people with paranormal afflictions.”

According to information sent by Terryville Public Library, the nonprofit organization states that they are “led by highly skilled, ethical professionals with over 60 years of combined knowledge and experience.”

Cowles said that Franke and Ferrante’s program has been “very well received” when they presented at other area libraries.

“If anyone is interested in the paranormal, then this is definitely a good event to come to,” she said.

This program is open to all ages. Registration is required.
