SPECIAL REPORT: Ghost Stories

There are several locations throughout the 4 States that residents claim are haunted.  In October 2007, reporter Jennifer Denman invited a group of paranormal investigators to visit some of these sites.

The Kansas City Paranormal Research team used science and technology, including audio recordings, video cameras and temperature readers, to see if they can find evidence of spirits.

We were with them when they spent a night at a Joplin cemetery, where a convicted murderer is said to be buried. And we were with them the night they spent at the only Jasper County home to survive the Civil War - where it was a hospital, and at one time was a birthing center.

Watch the videos on in the video player to the right.  They may leave you a believer, or just wanting to search down the dark halls for more.

Part I - Ghost hunters using science

In October 2007, we called in a group of paranormal investigators to check out some of the haunted places in southwest Missouri. Armed with recorders and video cameras, they approach each hunt like a scientific experiment.

Part II - The ghost of Billy Cook

The body of the convicted murderer is said to be buried in Joplin's Peace Church Cemetery. Some say he still haunts the old cemetery.

Part III - The Kendrick Place

One of the few homes in Jasper County, Missouri to survive the Civil War. With its history, some people swear they have seen ghosts. So the Kansas City Paranormal Research set up shop to see if they could catch any spirits.
