Shortly after her death, Cindy woke up in the middle of the night to find the ghost of this girl standing directly next to her bed. Cindy dismissed this chilling experience as just a dream and never spoke about it until her early 20s when she realized she was continually having mediumistic experiences.
Since her “awakening,” Cindy has been searching for the truth about her gifts and testing the limits of her multifaceted abilities.

Four-time author Ron Yacovetti is living in his home state of New Jersey. However, he began investigating the paranormal during his 14 years as a resident of Los Angeles, California.
He has a unique background as a stand-up comedian, an author and Paranormal Investigator. Ron’s background with satire, along with this empirical experience, has shaped his philosophical view of the absurd and paranormal. He applies a keen sense of awareness when hypocrisy and a lack of continuity of thought pervade the paranormal landscape.
Over years of research into audio phenomena, Ron believes we need to not only focus more on the technology and the study of consciousness, but also Philosophy, if we are to ever influence the reductionist science world instantiation and open up genuine acceptance to the reality of these inexplicable events the world over.
And while Ron enjoys all aspects of investigating, his affinity and specificity in afterlife research was almost instantly discovered in the area known as ITC: Instrumental Trans-Communication. Most know ITC from a variety of devices seen on TV such as the Spirit Box or Ghost Boxes. But when Ron looked to the pioneers of voice phenomena, he ended up being mentored by ITC pioneer Dr. Anabela Cardoso, who worked with those who created DRV: Direct Radio Voice, a method that predates any ghost box and exceeds them all in length, clarity and authenticity of contact.
As Ron continued doing innovative afterlife research and experimentation rooted in the European methodology of DRV, which through the removal of any radio has evolved into what he, Lourdes Gonzalez, Tony and Cherie Rathman now call “The Staticom Project” – producing anomalous vocals out of pure white noise.
Lourdes, born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and now residing in New Jersey has always been fascinated with the paranormal. Now, as a paranormal investigator, Lourdes loves to collaborate with several different paranormal teams.
She strongly believes in para-unity and says learning from others and sharing what she has learned is a key factor in the search for answers into the unknown. Some of her favorite places to investigate are The Shanley Hotel, White Hill Mansion, The Queen Mary and David Oman’s home in California which would be one of Lourdes’ more memorable haunts.
As an investigator, Lourdes loves exploring and experimenting using a range of equipment such as spirit boxes, sensor lights, music boxes just to name a few. But her most favorite equipment is a simple digital recorder. Lourdes feels it’s important to be open to the fact of using different types of equipment and learning new methods.
Lourdes’ newest endeavor with her partner Ron Yacovetti is ITC: Instrumental Transcommunication using a method known as Staticom, which she helped develop alongside Ron, Tony Rathman and his wife Cherie. The method itself is evolutionary with a tech spin, rooted in DRV: Direct Radio Voice, a method she continuously finds fascinating.
Lourdes says she still gets blown away by Class A EVP vocals captured by using a good old-fashioned recorder. But the new endeavor of Staticom has left her speechless as it is in her opinion the purest form of communication that comes closest to capturing a voice on a recorder out of thin air.
One of the rare and exceptional abilities Lourdes brings to any investigative or research based endeavor, is a career spanning almost two decades, as a court reporter. Her training and years of experience in listening to voices speaking in varying tones, speeds, cadences, accents and more, as well as oftentimes on top of each other, makes her a linguistic specialist in the field of anomalous audio capture and interpretation.
