|MPR NEWS AND UPDATES
|Welcome to the new Missouri Paranormal Research site!
This is where we will be posting important updates, points of interest, and upcoming
events. Anything that we feel is important for you to get direct access to. The site is very
new. There are many more areas and topics we plan on covering in the future. This is just
the basic layout. Can you believe that? A basic layout? Even now, MPR offers more
points of interest, articles, specialists, forums, and investigative help than most groups
out there on the web.
In the coming months, it is going to become very apparent why we call ourselves "the
future in paranormal research and discussion." We have some very exciting things and
concepts on the way, so you will need to check back often.
When building the site we decided that we wanted to make as easily accessible as
possible. Even the slowest of connections or the lowest of screen resolutions will find
that the pages load easily here. For those of you who have high speed connections, there
are little added bells and whistles throughout the site.
The first place we would like to point out to you is the Investigative area of the site. We
have just posted the final report for the Union Missouri Haunting. No matter what you
have heard about this haunting you must visit this report for the final word on Union. If
you haven't hear about the Union House then sit back and take the time to go through
everything the site has to offer on the subject.
When you are done here at the site and you are feeling like getting involved in some
paranormal discussion, please click on the Paraforum page and be directed to the safest,
and friendliest forum on the web.
Take your time and have fun! We hope to see you back here many times in the future.

|Greg sent me the following clips the other day from Ghostly Talk, the Internet radio talk
show. It was so funny that I was on the floor laughing for a good hour. Even though it is
satirical there are some things that ring true from past experiences that we have both
experienced. And why not have a good laugh about it. Maybe if we took the time to laugh
about the silly things in life instead of getting all worked up, we would all be better off. So,
sit back and enjoy the two clips. If you enjoyed them as much as we did, drop into the
Ghostly Talk website and tell them, "Alright (insert Dude here.)"

Steven and his family will be busy the next couple of weeks with the filming of interviews
for the Discovery Channel concerning the Union Missouri Haunting.
On March 4, 2006 we will be heading a joint follow up investigation on the private
residence where Tom captured the "once in a lifetime" photograph of a paranormal
anomaly. This may incorporate members from 5 or more groups and be a "Paranormal
Task Force" of sorts. Hopefully we will be able to further document this haunting and
capture more evidence equal to or better than before!
MPR's Open Forum is growing each day and has a multitude of very interesting
discussions currently ongoing. We also launched a Haunted Classifieds as well on our
forum for the paranormal community. The forum can be visited and joined by going to
Recently, MPR assisted a client in Indiana with a haunting which was starting to turn to
the more extreme side. With long distance communication, proper analysis and finally
with a house blessing from a long time minister in the community the activity has come to
an abrupt end and the client is now back in their home sleeping safely.

There have been many updates to the MPR website here including the posting of our
first submissions for placement on the Shared Photo Page and the EVP Audio Library.
Also a new article was added to the Articles section called Para-Dangers and a photo tour
page was added in the Private Investigation section which will give the viewer a better
mental visualization when reading the Investigative Reports, etc.
Some other pages have been updated as well, so stay awhile and look around! We are
glad to have you here.

The joint follow up investigation of the private location where Tom caught his awesome
anomaly on film was completed on March 4, 2006 by MPR and Ghost & Haunts in Missouri.
We had a very large professional team of 22 investigators with over 10 camcorders and
a large regimen of equipment including Tri Filed Natural EM Meters, Ion Detectors, etc. It
will take weeks to analyze the hours of video and audio obtained along with the
hundreds of digital and film photographs. Updates to the page concerning this
investigation will be done frequently as well as adding evidence results such as EVP's,
photos, etc. to the site.
To keep updated on this recent investigation then bookmark the following page within
the MPR site:
| MARCH 10, 2006
Over the next couple of months we will be changing the music on the MPR Website to
that of Local St. Louis, MO and other independent musicians/artist abroad as well.
An expample of this can be found on this page here:
Scroll to the bottom and you will see how due credit is given along with links on the artist
and/or sales of their music.
If you are such a musician/artist or know of some that would have music that would fit the
theme of the site on various pages then please send such material with permission to
use on our site and include the credit information, links, etc. like found through the
example page above.
We will also later create a Music Credit page on the site which will be dedicated to the
musicians/artist which are featured throughout the site along with their personal or band
bio, links to their sites and to the sale of their work.
This may also expand to graphic design artist, webdesigners, etc. in time. Such
considerations for this area will be accepted as well for consideration.
This is a good way for local and independent artist to further their horizons while
introducing themselves and their art to those who may not normally see or hear it
Material and information can be sent to adminmissouriparanormalresearch.com

The analysis still continues on the private investigation that was held on March 4, 2006.
MPR also conducted a private investigation of a business on March 18, 2006. The
preliminary report and evidence including EVP and Pictures are being added daily. The
new investigation area on the website can be found at:
We will have more follow up to these recent investigation as well as more new ones in
the near future. We also have added three very talented ladies to our team. Welcome
Sona, Melissa and Jody to the MPR Family and Team!! Their pictures and bios will be
added to the "Meet the Team" page soon.
Now if you surf around the site you will hear a lot of new music on the site by local St.
Louis area independent musicians Rick Mester (Sombrance & Ishur Ninku), Wade Baird
(Sombrance, Spin Radio & Since Hector Was a Pup) and Ian Baird (Spring Clock Wonder).
MPR want to thank these musicians for allowing us to feature their great work and hope
you enjoy it as well and support their talent.

MPR conducted a last minute investigation of the Arnold, Missouri Cemetery which has
been added to the Investigation Section of the Website and will be updated frequently as
evidence is analyzed.
Also there have been additions to the St. Louis Exorcism portion of the Website
including an article written by MPR and additional photographs of key places and people
involved. This will also be updated frequently as well.

The haunting in Union Missouri is going to open up the 3rd season of the Discovery
Channels show "A Haunting". One very interesting point will be a St. Louis
Psychiatrist who will speak about demonic possession and how he believes that the
woman, (MPR's client) was demonically possessed. We went through numerous hours of
interviews for this show and a tremendous amount of time has been spent fact checking.
At Missouri Paranormal Research we are very excited about this case and this show.
Also, we have just published new photo's from the St. Louis Exorcism case that have
never been published before. We were extremely lucky last Fall to go out to specific
locations on this case and one of these locations has never before been shared with the
public. We continue to do countless hours of research on this case. Because, as you
will see, our investigation raised a few new questions never asked publicly before and
we are determined to find the answers. Was the case of the boy just the start of things?
Are people asking the right questions? Maybe it is no longer about the boy at all? Can't
say too much right now but we are very excited at the things we have been uncovering.
We have photo's of the locations and a photo team going out to gather more to back up
the things that we are uncovering.

another investigation of the private location where the glowing ghost and fire on the

joint team members and investigative procedures for an upcoming full 2 hour paranormal
