Our Team

The Whispers in the Night Paranormal Research & Investigation team was formed in 2017 out of Fargo, ND/Moorhead, MN and surrounding areas with a focus on creating a community of like-minded individuals to discuss, investigate, and explore the paranormal & unexplained. Our team is made up of ten individuals who come from various religious faiths, beliefs in the occult/supernatural/paranormal, and years of experiences investigating. We are a non-profit organization that is supported completely through the funding of our own members. Our mission is to guide our clients, to educate & bring clarity on our findings, and to shed a light upon those shrouded in the darkness.

Seng Phengdouangdeth (Director & Founder)

​Not very much is known about Whispers in the Night host, Seng Phengdouangdeth other than the random bits of information one can find about him through search engines and random documents.

From what I've gathered, the realm of the unexplained is nothing new to Seng as he's spent the majority of his life exploring the unknown through paranormal investigation and active participation in numerous clubs that were dedicated to the occult. With an open mind toward the otherworldly, he created Whispers in the Night to combine the many facets of his passions into one place.

Nikki Tourangeau (Co-Founder)

Hello, my name is Nikki!

I have spent my whole life reading, watching, listening, and researching everything and anything I could
about the paranormal realm. I have been deeply interested and obsessed with all things paranormal
since I was a little girl. I am a firm believer in high strangeness but have a healthy skeptical side to
balance out my love for the paranormal field. I have been dreaming of the day I allow myself to dive
deeper into my fascination with the otherworldly so when presented with the opportunity to help start
a paranormal research and investigation group I was ecstatic!

I am not only happy to grow and nourish my knowledge in the paranormal field but am also happy to be
part of a team whose goal is to help our clients understand their experiences and provide help as well as education on the matter.

Brandi Bendel-Paulson (Case Manager)

Hi, I'm Brandi!


I've had many encounters with spirits throughout my life, some good, some bad. I'm here because I believe that those events have provided me with the knowledge and skills necessary to help provide others with a better understanding of their experiences..

Travis Guntermann (Case Manager)

​Hi, my name is Travis Guntermann.


I grew up in the small town of Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. After spending a few years after high school in my hometown, I packed up and moved to Fargo, ND and have since called it home. I have always had a special place in my heart for paranormal related subject matter after recurring incidents in my childhood home, apartment, and various places in the Detroit Lakes area.


I look forward to continuing my experiences and being involved with the Whispers in the Night Paranormal Investigations and Research group.

Shannon Thilquist (Research & Investigation)

My name is Shannon, I’ve been fascinated by all things paranormal since I was a little girl.


I grew up binge watching The X-Files, Unsolved Mysteries and anything ghost or haunting related. I’m a registered nurse by trade. My husband and I enjoy the outdoors, the lakes area and playing with our wild and crazy boxer girl , Gabby. I look forward to meeting other individuals interested in the paranormal and hearing their stories. I am hopeful that our team will be able to help people struggling with unexplained phenomena and events that may be disrupting their home and family.

Meg (Social Media & Marketing Director / Investigation)

​My name is Meg, and I must admit that I’m a skeptical participant, new to the world of paranormal activity & ghost hunting adventures. I am a journalist by trade, so I’m interested in exploring all forms of storytelling—even the spookiest ones.
