Halloween Hunting in Medicine Park

Posted: Updated:

MEDICINE PARK Okla_ It's Halloween, and you may have already started seeing children at your door who've turned into ghouls and goblins in search of tricks or treats.

In Medicine Park, some say ghosts loom all year long in an unlikely place: a restaurant.  7News Reporter Darcy Jackson went to The Old Plantation Inn, along with a paranormal group, in search of the lost souls.

Dustin, Tommie, Gary and Toni are with the Stephens County Apparition Research Society. They weren't messing around. They searched the area looking for answers to unexplainable phenomenon. That includes moving objects, sudden sounds, and temperature changes. They say this restaurant has been a hotspot. Dustin even has the battle wounds to prove it.

"It was enough actually to scare me upstairs and to get somebody to come downstairs with me," Dustin said. "You don't know whether to run or whether to sit there and say, 'Did that just happen?'"

Throughout the night, we were able to find frequency hot spots, indicating abnormal energy in certain locations, from frequency-measuring machines to night vision cameras.

Dustin said it's not hard to tell if spirits are nearby.

"They'll pull your electronics," Dustin said. "They'll drain the batteries in your cameras, your voice recorders."

We now know firsthand, he's not lying. Like many folks, our team went into the night as skeptics, but as we started filming, we couldn't believe our eyes. Our fully charged batteries kept draining faster than they ever had. Our team went through five batteries during the hunt. Just as we settled into the night upstairs, a recorder picked up an electronic voice phenomenon. Its sound is too extreme for people to initially hear. Listening closely, you can hear the words "Eenie meenie miney mo" on the recording.

That was our cue to call it a night. As the guys packed up their equipment, Darcy couldn't help but ask one last question.

"What are you trying to prove?" she asked.

"That there is life after death," Dustin said. "There is something besides this life."

One thing is for sure: The Old Plantation Inn definitely stays active even after the restaurant closes.

Trick-or-treating in Lawton ends at 8pm.
