One of the best parts of paranormal investigating, for me, is doing the research. I love doing research to find past residences and/or past occurrences at the locations.
One example is when I was looking up the history of the Broadview Hotel in Wichita. The legend is about a ghost named Clarence, who worked at the hotel, and finding his wife with her lover at the hotel. He shot and killed both of them then killed himself by jumping off the balcony.
While looking up to see if I could find anything of this story in the newspapers, I did find an accident at the Broadview that killed an employee. His name was Clyde Usrey. He was 18 years old and it was his first day at his new job there. The newspaper articles and pictures can be seen here:
Another surprise to me was that no one I spoke to at the hotel had ever heard this story. So, as you can see, a lot of times, there is more history at locations than what is remembered.
Ghosts and Ghost Hunting! We watch all the shows on TV and are BIG fans. Moonlit Ghost Hunts, just what we needed!
The GREAT team of Darin, Lori and Jerry have introduced us to their wide range of ghost hunting equipment, which includes a variety of meters, audio recorders, the spirit box, different kinds of cameras and a thermal cam. The team has taught us how to properly use all of their equipment.
At each location, Moonlit has given us the background story and a brief tour of the facility. Along the way they point out potential hot spots. We then meet back at the command center and break into teams. Then the fun begins! The investigation is broken into 3 sessions, each concluding with the teams meeting back at the command center and sharing their experiences.
We can’t tell you about the excitement we feel each time we take our first steps into a dark hallway. You just have to be there and feel it!There is absolutely nothing like it.
During our investigations with Moonlit we have experienced battery drains and EMF hits. We have captured several EVPs and heard various knocks, bumps and taps. We have even seen the ultimate – an apparition.
Moonlit Ghost Hunts is a professional team that compares to the teams you see on TV. We know if you go to an investigation with them you will have a blast. You aren’t there just to watch – YOU are the investigator.
We can’t wait for the next investigation; we will be there and hope to see you.
