Are there rooms in your house that give you an unspecific, uneasy feeling? Do you see shadows where nothing is there? Does your family tell stories about odd occurrences that cannot be explained? These stories and experiences might send most people running, but Dusk 2 Dawn Investigations, paranormal investigators in Kansas City, also run…toward them. Read on to find what happens when they find a ghost!
What is the name of your group?
Dusk 2 Dawn Paranormal Investigations
What is your name and what is your role in the group?
Jimmie McVey, founder & lead investigator
When and why did you become interested in the paranormal?
I became interested many years ago, when my sister died. She passed away in 1978.
How would you describe Dusk 2 Dawn Investigations?
We are an evidenced based group, meaning we only rely on documented evidence, i.e. audio, video & photographs. We never jump to conclusions. We try to find logical answers, rather than believing everything is paranormal. Once all avenues have been de-bunked, only then will we consider it paranormal. We provide investigations within a 100 mile radius of Kansas City. All services are free.
Our mission is help those in need of answers & raise awareness of the paranormal in a positive manner. It’s also to raise funds & awareness of for the Jackson County Historical Society & the 1859 Jail, Marshal’s Home & Museum in Independence , MO
When was the group founded?
We were founded in 2009
What made you want to found a group of paranormal investigators in Kansas City?
I founded the group because I did not like the way the group I was in, treated their clients. We try very hard to review evidence & get it back to the client within a timely manner. We’re very discreet & respectful.
How big is the group?
How often do you meet?
We average 1-2 investigations per month, so we see each other on a regular basis.
Tell us about a typical investigation.
The client will contact us, we receive the claims from the client. We do a walk through of the location, if possible, before the investigation. We also do research on each location. On the night of the investigation, we arrive, on time & determine what equipment we’re setting up & where. This usually running numerous DVR cameras, Kinects, voice recorders & other handheld equipment. The size of the location determines how many team members go & how many can go in for each session. Each session lasts about 45-50 minutes. We switch out team members for each session, to give a fresh perspective
If/when you do find ghosts or spirits, what do you do?
When we do find spirits/ghosts, we notify the client of what we find. If the client does wish the spirit/ghost to be removed from their home or business, we are not “ghost busters” and do not remove them. We do, however have a former team member that can assist in moving the spirits/ghosts out and we would advise the client that our friend can help them at no charge.
Now, when we find spirits/ghosts in businesses, a lot of the owners want them to stay because they do draw people to their businesses. A lot of people want to experience this and will go to the business.
What do you love about investigating the paranormal?
You never know what you will find, but when you do find evidence, it makes it all worth it.
Tell us about a particularly memorable investigation.
The 1859 Jail. We’ve had many experiences there, but one in particular stands out. We were setting up for a private investigation. I had run the DVR & kinect into the parlor. When both were turned on, the stick figure of a child appeared. We had a ball there, that we use as a trigger object. The child stick figure was trying to kick it. Pretty awesome!
What future plans lay ahead for the group?
We have several private investigations in the next month or so. We have a historic location in Kansas City lined up for after the first of the year. And we’re planning on a team trip/investigation for spring of 2017 to Waverly Hills in Kentucky
