In 2018, after requests from many people to join us on investigations, Haunted Nights Paranormal Events was born. Haunted Nights Paranormal Events provides a unique, one of a kind paranormal investigation experience at some of the most haunted well known and brand new locations throughout Virginia and abroad.

Lyle Lotts: My experience in the field dates back to the summer of 2011. After being a fan of many of the paranormal programs on television my curiosity and skepticism was very high, so I had to see for myself if there truly is another realm of life among us. Along with my wife Tonna, we decided to start up our own team of researchers and investigators.

After 10 years of leading Team Twisted, my level of awareness is much higher as we search to find answers in this field of the unknown. I also am the Director, Producer, and Lead Investigator for the ParFlixx Streaming Series The Twisted Realm. Currently I serve as Owner, Event Coordinator, Media Production, and Presenter for the Haunted Nights Crew.

Tonna Lotts: I have been in the paranormal field for 10 years, but my interest has been since I was a teenager. My mom was in parapsychology and would tell me stories. She would tell me she could see things before they would happen so now I understand what I have going on. I love communicating with spirits and hearing their stories and history! 

Its very rewarding when you have a family contact you with activity and you are able to give them answers and closure. After leading Team Twisted and investigating I look forward to continuing to learn and research the other realm. I am also a Lead Investigator/Case Manager for the ParaFlixx Streaming Series The Twisted Realm. Currently I serve as Owner, Location Coordinator, and Merchandising Manager for the Haunted Nights Crew.

Brandon Johnson:  I have been in the paranormal field for 15 years and became interested when I saw a full bodied apparition when I was a kid at an old hotel. My love for the paranormal cant be described and it's like I'm drawn into this field. My love for photography and graphic art also come into play when it comes to marketing Team Twisted! I have been with the team for 3 years as camera operator, investigator and recently

I look forward to looking for answers to my questions of life after death.  I also am a Producer, Camera Op, and Lead Investigator for the ParaFlixx Streaming Series The Twisted Realm.

 I have been in the paranormal field for 10 years and have always been intrigued in this field. When I was about 8, I saw what I believed to be my grandfather and then after going on a ghost hunt at 16 years old I realized I could see things others couldn't. I love hearing the spirits stories. I have been with Team Twisted for 3 years as Case Manager, investigator. I look forward to learning more about the scientific side about this realm of the unknown.

I am also an Investigator/Case Manager for the ParaFlixx Streaming Series The Twisted Realm. Currently I serve as Merchandising Coordinator and Investigation Lead for the Haunted Nights Crew.

Jon has over 10 years of experience investigating the paranormal and is the Co/Founder of RVA Paranormal in Richmond VA, production assistant for The Twisted Realm Series on ParaFlixx and is the head of security for Haunted Nights Paranormal Events.  He has been in the Information Technology field for over 18 years and has a huge passion for American history.

He uses his knowledge of the IT industry and history to research locations and to help date and create timelines.  He feels the best evidence is audio/video and uses his experience in IT to solidify his findings.  He believes mixing a bit of fun into investigations is critical. “There is a time to be serious, but you cannot be afraid to laugh and have fun. I believe your feelings and emotions going in set the tone for what you experience during an investigation. If you are happy and lighthearted, I feel spirits will be attracted to that”.

I strongly believe our self-awareness (our bodies as instruments) to monitor our surroundings and environment are a critical part of investigating.”
