There is a spooky summit at the University of Nebraska – Omaha campus Friday evening. Their Paranormal Society is hosting their 5th annual event on local haunts and unexplained activity. President Sara Gray says there is a huge interest in paranormal activity and more people are starting to accept there isn’t a logical explanation for everything.
Gray says, “”I think part of it that people are finally starting to talk about it and less shy about admitting there is something going on out there. More people are becoming more open minded and a little more realistic. I think that helps.”
Gray says those attending the summit will hear from several Omaha experts speaking about local haunts and paranormal activity. Locations include the Squirrel Cage Jail in Council Bluffs, the school house in Farrar, Iowa and the Villisca Axe Murder House in Villisca, Iowa. She says experts will talk about the logical, scientific and rational explanations that could be taking place in these locations.
Following the presentations those attending will go on a campus ghost hunt led by field investigators. Gray says the location is the site of an unsolved 1955 murder on campus.
The summit will be held inside the College of Public Affairs and Community Service Building and starts at 6 p.m. Proceeds will help benefit homeless veterans at the Stephen Center in Omaha.
