Jim Pace and the rest of his ghost hunter team -- SPOOK (Sooner Paranormal Of Oklahoma) -- frequently search for sprits, ghosts, and supernatural activity through out the Tulsa region.
Their clients are home owners and businesses looking for evidence that their properties are haunted.
SPOOKS recent efforts have focused on an abandoned building in the old town of Sapulpa, Oklahoma -- a settlement which dates back to railroad and trading post days of the 19th Century.
The building was the location of a jewelry business. Pace claims the owner 'vacated in a hurry' -- something scared the owner away. According to Pace the location, dates back to 1902. It was a speakeasy and a brothel frequented by railroad workers and roughnecks.
Back then, the whole town was overrun with rough characters.
In this building's basement Pace and his fellow hunters set up microphones, meters, cameras, recorders -- technology that Pace says can monitor and capture evidence of paranormal activity.
Pace tells of a spirit called "Cowboy" and another called "Mattie". He talks of people getting scratched and bruised and messed with in the haunted location.
One piece of evidence that he points out is a chalk board message: "The Cake is a Lie" - Pace says this is a message of an unhappy ghost.
Pace had a psychic colleague question the spirits.
(Internet commenters after seeing this clip claim the "Cake is a Lie" comment is merely a hoax, and a direct reference to a puzzle game called Portal)
Pace concedes, sometimes there are no hauntings but instead critters or "people that drink too much."
