Samantha Freeland

Ever wonder whether ghosts and spirits haunt the world of the living?

For those who want to find answers, and for skeptics who just want satisfy their curiosity, “ghost hunters” John Zaffis and Chris Moon will be at Missouri Southern at 7 p.m. Oct. 24 in Taylor Auditorium.

“A lot of students who aren’t too familiar with ghost hunting and paranormal things usually go and come out saying what a time they had,” said Melanie Epperson, secretary of student activities.

Zaffis, with 35 years of paranormal experience, serves as a paranormal expert for the SCI-FI Channel’s “Ghost Hunters” and Discovery Channel’s “A Haunting.” Zaffis will show slides, pictures, and tell stories of his paranormal experiences.

Moon, who owns Thomas Edison’s “Telephone to the Dead” will join Zaffis on stage using his paranormal telephone to try to contact his dead mother.

Zaffis and Moon have received EVPs, or Electronic Voice Phenomena, while demonstrating the black box at other universities.

“It’s just a scary, fun time for students,” Epperson said.

This free event is open to the public. Epperson said they hope to have John Zaffis come to the campus on a regular basis.
