The forces of nature did not keep three members with Iowa Paranormal away from Oakland cemetery Saturday night, and also not five and 50.The five thrill seekers, none of whom were associated with the paranormal group, waited in the lightly falling snow near the west entrance to the cemetery. The 50 assembled in People's Baptist Church, just a stone's throw west of the cemetery, to pray.The three paranormal investigators — led by group founder Steven Tracy, of Centerville, Patrick Law, of Centerville, and Tony Brozovich, of Numa — arrived at 7 p.m. and started their testing near the west end of the cemetery at the Oakland CemeteryChapel and receiving vault.
They brought a video camera wrapped in plastic to protect it from the falling snow, three voice recorders and an electronic magnetic field detector. The camera can see in pure darkness and the EMF detector can rule our unexplainable events, Tracy said.
"We go in
looking for the natural causes. We take the scientific approach to it,

Tracy said he and Law
thought they might have seen an unexplainable light near the grave of
Hon. Harvey Tannehill and were getting ready to walk to that area of

others think they might have seen while on the Haunted History Tour

that again," Tracy said, while pointing to a large evergreen where they
were standing less than 30 minutes ago and the same type light was seen
in the same area near Tannehill's grave. "And down on the far side
where we first witnessed the activity from the Haunted History Tour
we've seen the ball of light again, like we've seen the first time. But
we do not have it on video tape."
Tracy said they need to
capture audio or video evidence, which would be closely and carefully
scrutinized, before they would make a judgement or announcement.
"We're going to go down
there, turn the video camera on, just kind of sit around, see if
anything comes up and hopefully we'll have it on videota......
