"Forensic Parapsychology" may describe something I have been doing for some time in the investigation of mediumship.
I am using measuring anecdotal statements against historical accuracy. Often statements go against the historical record. There have been some interesting examples where these statements have actually modified recorded history. It is important to understand that these statements are not taken initially as true. They are instead used to further investigate specifica aspect of history forensically and thus if validated may change the related history.
Two examples of this.
In the 1980s information was provided during a remote viewing study involving a purportedly "haunted" location. One of the remote viewers produced specific historical information about this National Parks Service site. This information was later confirmed by a respected NPS historian and the archivist of the U.S. Supreme Court, since some of the information pertained to the history of the Court.
In 2006 a California medium provided valuable historical information as to the true identity of a young woman who purportedly haunts the Hotel Del Coronado in Coronado, California. She had been misidentified for over a century. After 2 1/2 years of forensic historical research, I confirmed this fact. The story that came out was completely contradictory to four other prior histories that had been developed by as many other authors, all of whom had made understandable mistakes. I consulted over 20 subject matter experts in over a dozen fields during this research.
We have many examples where the histories of events have been informally rewritten as a result of mediumistic and even apparitional experiences.
So if I had to define "forensic parapsychology" in this context, I would say it is the practice of confirming information provided through anomalous psi information channels with the impact of modifying some form of history.
This could extend to using psychic detectives as well.
Anomalous Phenomena is Unexplained not Impossible
Psi is Subtle not Absolute
Anything is possible, it'a all a matter of Probability
