has years of paranormal
investigative experience. He is well versed with haunting classifications, paranormal investigative
techniques and leadership through example. Greg has served as a technician and supervisor while

Greg is one that shares the philosophy that paranormal investigations
can come with many unknown
dangers which are not properly addressed by most of the paranormal research field. This and other
important issues are overlooked and need further advocation to current and future researchers and
investigators within this field. Greg adheres to a Humanistic Approach to investigations developed by
Missouri Paranormal Research Founder Steven LaChance which always places the client first above
Greg became part of MISSOURI PARANORMAL RESEARCH™ in August
of 2005 serving as a co-
administrator, lead investigator and EVP specialist. While serving with MPR, Greg became an
instrumental element in the collection and analysis of evidence in a case involving an extreme
"inhuman" haunting and possession. This Haunting was featured on the Discovery Channel's "A
Haunting" series as the Season 3 opener in October 2006. Greg then co-founded PARANORMAL TASK
FORCE, Inc. in October 2006. PARANORMAL TASK FORCE™, Inc. is a not for profit incorporation which
educates and promotes the awareness of paranormal research as well as other historical and
paranormal related issues along with providing assistance to the public and other organizations.
MISSOURI PARANORMAL RESEARCH™ now serves as its non-extreme investigative and research
division while other divisions will be launched making Paranormal Task Force™, Inc. a "One Stop"
resource for all paranormal needs of clients, the public and other organizations as well.
Greg has been a featured guest on many radio stations across the
US, UK, and Canada and has
completed filming earlier this year (2007) with Keith Age and The Booth Brothers for "Children of the
Grave" which will be released on October 2, 2007. He also served as a Location Manager for that
project. He also completed filming for the Exspiro Productions documentary "The Other Side" which
was released earlier this year (2007). Greg has also authored articles and short stories concerning
his experiences within the paranormal realms and theories related to such which are published on the
World Wide Web. Some of these articles and stories have been selected for inclusion in “Weird
Hauntings II” and “Weird Missouri” which will be published in the near future.
Greg has also recently been added to the League of Paranormal Gentlemen.

20 Questions Greg Myers
1. Where do you see ghost hunting and Paranormal groups, web sites
or Ghost information, tours, Books Paranormal Radio and Television
in 10 years?
With technology reaching higher levels at more affordable prices coupled with the saturation of paranormal topics within the media, I see even a further increase in the Paranormal realms within the next 10 years.
2. What would you personally consider to be the definitive proof that ghosts are real?
To prove the definitive existence of ghost or anything paranormal will take the serious interest and efforts of the true scientific community to conduct research and experimentation into this field with the hopes of furthering the technological advancements in specific equipment where evidence becomes a standard repetitive process that can be presented to others. Personally myself, I have had personal experiences which already has provided the definite proof that ghost are indeed 100% real.
3. What is the most real evidence you personally have uncovered so
Personal evidence collected by myself has been EVP. Within the research and investigative team I belong to and co-administrate, I can further add some very spectacular unexplainable pictures and video of full ghostly apparitions and a long list of unexplainable personal encounters with the unknown.
4. Are you skeptical of the claims other make of their findings?
Yes, you could not be objective within the paranormal research and investigative field without good sound skepticism. You always have to search for the explainable reason for what is first perceived as unexplainable. When all routes of the explainable fail and such are included with the presentation of such claims, then you can open yourself to an analytic process to better understand such claims and evidence involving the unknown which will make it better known in the future.
5. If you could investigate your "Dream Haunted Hot Spot"
where would it be?
A WWII Concentration Camp due to the multitude of horrific deaths concentration in one small area.
6. What was your first Paranormal encounter?
Being passed through by an unseen entity who made its presence known prior to doing so while I was a teen.
7. What scares you about Ghost Hunting or Paranormal Investigations?
The fact that we are dealing with the unknown which has no standard properties than can be placed in a scientific box. As such, it also presents a multitude of unknown dangers as well.
8. If you could work side by side with one of the Paranormal Investigator
greats, who would it be?
Thomas Edison due to his experimentations and mysteries which revolve around his communication device to the dead now called the Thomas Edison Communicator (TEC).
9. Read any good Paranormal Books lately?
"Shadows of the Dark" by John Zaffis. A very well written and interesting book!
10. What Question do people ask you most when you tell them your
a paranormal investigator, Radio Personality?
If they don't look at me like I am insane or have some contagious terminal disease then I would say simply "Have you ever really seen a ghost?" would be the forerunner of being the most common question asked.
11. In your opinion, Where is the most Haunted city in America?
I will go with my home town and say the general St. Louis, MO metro area with the inclusion of nearby Alton, IL.
12. Do you feel more people should get involved with Ghost hunting
or Paranormal Investigation?
I personally feel that more from the true legitimate scientific community should get involved to further help legitimize this field and provide the assistance needed to further the advancements within it.
As far a normal people being drawn into it for personal experiences, thrills or due to media portrayals of paranormal research and investigations, then I would say "no" due to the potential risk and dangers the unknown can present. Also, the over involvement in this field by those who have a lack of proper ethical values and professional protocols and standards will cause more damage to the credibility of others who do possess such values and standards.
13. What does the future hold for you?
My future is much like what I research and investigate and that is "unknown".
14. Paranormal Conventions do you see them growing? And which ones
are the Must go to ones?
Recently there have been many failed attempts by groups trying to host such paranormal conventions. I do think they will grow, but not in the vast numbers of individual one which produce many failed attempts that pop up everywhere, but rather they will become more strategic in location and grow within larger metropolitan areas which host a very diverse populous to draw from.
The Conventions hosted by the Louisville Ghost Hunters are a must see along with the large ones in Gettysburg, PA.
15. What is your most favored tool of the trade?
My favorite tool of the trade would be my audio recorders which many times capture unexplainable audio voices or EVP.
16. Tell us about your best moment in investigating or conference
attending for you?
This would have to be while filming in the movie "Children of the Grave" with Keith Age and the Booth Brothers and seeing the look on their face while on our home court Urban Legend areas called "Zombie Road" when they came to realization that it was one place where the Legends were indeed reality.
17. What is the hardest part about being a paranormal investigator?
The hardest part about being an investigator is the many hours each week that it takes me away from my wife and children.
18. How do you document your investigations?
Investigations that I am on are meticulously documented with the inclusion of environmental conditions, personal experiences of the investigators, quality control standards for all collected audio, pictures and video, skeptical analysis of any potential evidence or unexplainable experiences with much analysis trying to come to logical and explainable causes for such along with attempts to recreate such in the process, etc. that after being fully analyzed and reviewed will produce very thorough, objective and complete reports to assist clients we serve as well as the paranormal field.
19. Have you ever taken a ghost Tour? And, What about it did you
Yes, somewhat dry and way too many people on it to really appreciate the environment or possibly experience anything unexplainable.
20. What in the field of ghost hunting and Paranormal Investigating
needs the most attention.
As of now, I believe the most attention needs to be focused on professional standards and ethics along with defined evidence collection techniques and quality control standards which would assist in gaining the interest and inclusion of the true scientific community.
