Paranormal Activities in Sioux City

By Kelsey Levenhagen–
There are plenty of unexplained phenomea in this world. And while most of the time, people just leave it at that, the Siouxland Paranormal Research Society makes it their mission to find out what that sound is you might have heard, or why objects are moving inexplicably.

The Society was founded in 2008 in Sioux City and has been taking cases in Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota. David LaFleur, a member of the SPRS, is looking for new recruits to help with the investigations into the unknown.

“We are looking for people who have interviewing skills, Digital Media and Video back grounds. They can be someone who has experienced paranormal activity themselves, or can be a skeptic as well. But, need to keep an open mind that anything is possible,” LaFleur said.

When a home or business is having trouble explaining the activities taking place in their space, they call up the SPRS to help solve these issues. “We go into an investigation looking for logical explanations to their reported activity while at the same time looking for the things that can backup their reported claims,” said LaFleur.

An actual investigation calls for equipment such as night vision DVR systems, EMF meters, digital recorders, cam corders, and digital cameras; and may take up to 4 hours or more depending on the activity recorded.

The group has experienced numerous amounts of paranormal things. “We have had many cases since the group was founded. I have been pushed twice my self, another member had stuff thrown at him, we have heard all sorts of noises and reviewed some awesome evidence,” revealed Lafleur.

Paranormal activity has interested people for years. With the huge hit last fall of the movie Paranormal Activity and the sequel coming out soon, there shouldn’t be a problem with people getting curious as to what else is out there.
