Haunted Hall at Lake Lotawana

I spoke at a paranormal conference at the Sportsman's Club hall at 29709 East Alley Road, Lake Lotawana, Missouri in 2013 and sat at a table with my books on it for the remainder of the event. In the late afternoon while sitting at my booth I suddenly saw a man dressed in hunting gear carrying a shotgun in one arm, walk through the solid block masonry wall behind me and to my left, actaully walking through a person at another table, then towards the front of the hall to my left. I asked my neighbor if he saw anything but he said he did not. However, both of us felt a very cold chill that coincided with the apparition walking by (and through him).  

I later asked some of the conference promoters if they knew if the hall was haunted and they said they were not aware of it, however, there had been an accident on the shooting range about 15 years ago where a man was accidentally killed. That would make sense since the apparition I witnessed was decked out in hunting attire. However, a search for articles on the topic resulted in nothing, so I can't prove that this event actually occurred.

On May 9, 2014 I returned to the location for the annual Jacomo Strutters Wild Turkey Federation banquet. All evening I was on the lookout for any paranormal activity and even had my camera ready just in case anything appeared, but nothing did.  At about 9:00 p.m. I went to the ladies room, leaving my camera on the table with my husband (of course), and when I entered the bathroom I saw two very bright white/yellow balls of light the size of baseballs, come through the door and exit through the block wall on the opposite side.

It is my opinion that this location is indeed haunted and needs further investigation.

Looking for haunted businesses for new book and article

If you have a haunted public building, business, cemetery, hotel, bar or restaurant anywhere in the world I am interested in hearing about it for an upcoming new book and for a listing of the most haunted sites in the world for the fall issue of Un-X News Magazine.

It needs to be a public place that anyone can visit so the public can check it out if they want to.  If you are looking for more visitors, this is one way to do it!

Our team of professional investigators and psychics may investigate your site with paranormal equipment to be sure it is haunted and perhaps even find out why it is haunted- before listing it in the book. If you are too far away we will remote view the location!

If you are interested in participating please send your business name, address, contact information, and story to  I need to know any history about the location, who may have died there, what people are seeing, hearing, or experiencing and how this affects your business.

Update on the Lady in Gray in Independence

I received an e-mail recently from a man living in Independence, Missouri who told me that he has seen the Noland Road Lady in Gray several times in the 1990's.  He said that he saw her as a full body apparition wearing old, torn clothing, a scarf, and long skirt.  Once it was only a partial apparition.  All of the sightings were on Noland Road in front of the Woodlawn cemetery at dusk, which is where he lived at the time.  The woman would be visible for a few minutes, then just disappear from view with no explanation.

See my earlier post on the Lady in Gray for more information.
