Damion is one of the co-founders of the team. He's been highly interested in the paranormal since he was a teenager but he has been having his own personal experiences since age 3.
At that age he vividly remembers experiencing what he can best describe as a witch type figure floating above him after he woke up in the middle of the night. Since then he's experienced unexplainable activity everywhere he's lived. Everything from his closet door opening on its own to having his foot pulled on while in bed to hearing his named whispered in his ear. But probably his most profound experience was seeing a full body apparition of a lady wearing a white dress with long white hair.
During his teenage years he, along with his 2 best friends Josh and Keith, would be out on the weekends until 2 or 3 a.m. investigating any cemetery or abandoned house they heard was haunted. During those years the 3 often talked about starting an actual paranormal investigation team and traveling to all these different haunted locations. But it wasn't until Keith told him about Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville, Kentucky that he truly set his sights on becoming a legit paranormal investigator.
Continuing in adulthood a team was something the 3 still often talked about. But in June of 2011 Keith, who was a police officer in their hometown of Dickson, Tennessee, was shot and killed in the line of duty. At that moment the dream of 3 best friends came to an unexpected and heart breaking halt.
Though as the years passed a team was still something Damion and Josh discussed.
In 2017 Damion finally made it to Waverly Hills Sanatorium for the 1st time and it was then he knew forming a team was something he not only wanted to still do but something he had to do. But it wouldn't be until 3 years later after an overnight investigation with Josh and some other friends inside the cold, dark hallways and slowly decaying cells of Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary in Petros, Tennessee that the formation of a team would finally begin. And to honor their fallen friend Damion and Josh named the team after him and using his initials they become RKB Paranormal.
Josh is one of the co-founders of the team.
Kelley is Damions wife and she has been interested in the paranormal since she was a small child around 3 or 4 years old. She had her first encounter with a ghost child around that age and it was something she has never forgotten. She remembers when she was looking at her it was as though she were real. You could not see through her and she did not fade away. She even remembers getting out of bed and reaching out to her but she never moved. She just stood there looking at her peacefully. Then as most children do she went back to bed and covered her head and when she pulled the covers back down the child had vanished. Kelley has had many other experiences that she could not explain. She has seen shadows, been touched, heard unexplainable whipsering, her covers tugged on. She's had experiences everywhere shes lived. Her oldest son has also had his own experiences as well and what he witnessed she witnessed as well. During her first paranormal investigation with the team she says she experienced things that have proven to her that we are not alone in this world. And one experience she had she will never forget and it shook her to her core. She's recently realized that's shes sensitive to alot of paranormal happenings. She will sense someone in the room or she will hear or see things that other don't.
She's excited to be a part of this team and she is looking forward to many more investigations to come.
Julie is Kelleys sister and Damions sister-in-law. She has been interested in the paranormal since high school. Her first paranormal encounter was the night her grandmother passed away. She was in high school at the time. All of the grandkids were in a room next to her grandmothers room. Julie was awake and her grandmother came through the door and stood at the foot of the bed. She just smiled and then she was gone. The second encounter Julie had with a spirit was the spirit of her grandfather. She saw him a week after he had passed away. To this day she knows her grandfather is with her. She knows he hangs out in her kitchen and comes to her room when she's working through out the day. Her first paranormal investigation with the team was at the Historic Scott County Jail and she was touched on her back. Her second paranormal investigation with the team was at Rohs Opera House and she was touched multiple times and she witnessed a floating ball of light she couldn't logically explain. She is excited for this opportunity with RKB Paranormal and is looking forward to many more ghostly adventures.
Ashley is Josh's girlfriend.
Jacob is Kelley and Damion's 15 year old son. He began experiencing the paranormal at the young age of 3 years old. He was often woken up in the middle of the night by a dark apparition that he says was either a man or child. The spirit would physically touch him to wake him up. He would always see it by the sink in the bathroom that was in his room or he would see it coming out of the bathroom. During those years he had a Woody Toy Story doll with a pull string that would randomly talk on its own and he refused to play with it. It got so bad he eventually refused to sleep in that bedroom.
Around 5 years old he started becoming intrigued by the paranormal when him and his mother began watching the show Ghost Adventures. Growing up he watched the paranormal shows religiously. It wasn't until Damion and Kelley began dating in 2020 that he wanted to go on an actual investigation. Damion took him to his 1st one in March of 2021. It was a public event at the Historic Rosemont in Gallatin, TN. Jake had spirit interaction in one of the rooms. The spirit would turn on and off a flashlight when Jake was sitting at its desk. When asked if the spirit liked Jake sitting there at its desk it turned off the flashlight in a no response. Also during that night Jake videoed paranormal activity for the 1st time as he captured a flashlight being rolled off a table. His flashlight interaction at the desk is currently the most viewed video on the teams YouTube channel. Jake went on his 1st investigation with the whole team just a month later at the old Harriman Post Office in Harriman, TN. During the walk through he was scratched on the right side of his neck just minutes after another team member was scratched on the neck as well. He witnessed a creepy shadow figure crawling in the basement that spooked him a little. His next investigation wasn't until December 2022 when he went with the team to Rohs Opera House in Cynthiana, KY. He seen shadow figures throughout the night. He along with Kelley and Julie heard a loud, cackling female laugh that scared them to the point they screamed and ran out of the room. After that night the team decided to make Jake a full time member of the team. Jake hopes to find answers that he is seeking related to the paranormal and hopes to be spooked along the way during the teams ghostly endeavors.
