This group is different in many aspects from other ghost groups.  We don't welcome fame and fortune.  We don't want to be on a television show or be known to the entertainment world.  We don't advertise, we are found only by internet searches or word of mouth.  We are here for you and your paranormal encounters.


The purpose of this group is to evaluate and investigate reports of paranormal activity in the central Illinois area. We are all in this group for one reason, the need and desire to learn more about the unknown.  We want to help you understand what is happening in your home or to you and we do this by working with you on your paranormal needs. We work with the public by doing presentations in hopes to educate people about the paranormal world.  We do not purposely try to make the spirits leave during our investigations nor do we antagonize.  Moving the spirits on takes a very special talent and we will get you in contact with someone who has this talent if need be.  Our hopes are that we can work with the spirits to find out their needs and in doing so this satisfies the spirit which in turn makes them want to move on. There is no guarantee though and many times the choice is to either to live peacefully with the spirits or move. Sometimes, just having someone tell you you're not crazy is all you need.

We need places to investigate to continue our research. Be assured, only experienced and professional researchers will be doing the investigations. If anyone has unusual things happening that you can't explain, please contact us so we can help you.

We can help by answering questions, giving advice or conducting a free investigation. Our contact information is posted at the top of this page.


After listening to the evps under the investigations tab and you have an opinion, a question or a suggestion please email, text or call me with it.  We are always interested in what you think.

Do you have pictures or audio recordings containing something paranormal?  Feel free to send it to debbie.lowery@comcast.net and I'll post it here on the website. Write up a little blurb about it if you want to explain it. It's always fun to share!


A picture was taken of a memorial.  Nothing has been touched up.  Looks like an orb moving over the stones.

Weeds are out of focus at the front of the stones. White mist.  Any ideas?


A person took a picture of her daughter at New Salem State Park in Petersburg, IL. Someone else looks like they wanted to get in on the picture.
Close up of white mist behind the girl. Can anyone tell what this is? Person took a picture in her house and got this. Do you have any idea what this is? Family picture was taken. Another little girl was looking at it and remarked that another baby was in the picture. Can anyone see another?
Took a selfie in the mirror.  Noticed in the picture down by her stomach in the black area there was a face looking back at her. Close up of this area. Another picture with nothing showing in the black area but in a different spot. 
Close up.  Any ideas? Someone sent this to me and said they captured this picture in pitch black.  Any thoughts?

(From sender)This picture was taken in 2003 ( I believe) when my husband and I went to Alton, Illinois with my brother and some girlfriends. My husband is a professional photographer and he took this picture. We had a role of 27 exp..........4 pictures only showed up on the whole role of film. This picture was taken right in front of the "sun room"..........we went from cold to completely dead cold! If you look through the picture, you can see the sun room and windows in the background. Ghostly or alien, what do you think?

Black figure at Norb Andy's Tavern

A gentleman from England by the name of Tony Meads sent me this evidence that he would like to share with everyone.  The evp and some of the orbs are captured in a 13th Century church.

Video - moan

pic of orbs in a churchyard


Also from Tony Meads - an orb to the left of the picture in a tree is at a well known location where a woman was accused of witchcraft in the 17th century and chased down the lane(now named after her) and found hanged in a wood the next day. The official verdict was suicide but there is little doubt that her pursuers murdered her. Ever since then her spirit is said to repeat her dash down the lane. The orb in this picture seems to have a face within it. orb

Same location - orb

 As I said to you the figure that I captured at Nan Tucks Lane looks too good to be true but I SWEAR on my late Mother's soul that this has not been tampered with in any way or manufactured by me. What happened was that my friend,Barry, and I were at Nan Tucks Lane and I took a photo in Tucks Wood(right next to the lane) and my Fujifilm camera is a bit temperamental sometimes and when I took this shot the flash didn't go off and it was taken with available light. As you can see there is some camera shake. my friend Barry was behind me and he can verify that this photo is genuine.

photo with a figure(it seems to me that it is a figure) was taken at High Hurstwood churchyard. To the right of my friend,Trevor,there seems to be a figure of an old person leaning on a stick with head bowed and wearing a long coat and trousers and shoes.

picture of what my friend ,Barry, describes as a "worm orb" was taken at Berwick church right by the church organ. Berwick is VERY haunted!
