KD Stafford
Travel Channel's "Ghost of Morgan City"
Saturday, March 19th at 2 pm.

KD Stafford, the Paranormal Mad Scientist of Travel Channel's "Ghost of Morgan City" will talk about his time on the show, as well as his time working with Jack Osborne and the Ghost Brothers. Stafford uses advances in technology to build better paranormal research equipment that pushes the envelope. He has built ghost helmets that allow everyday people to heighten their sixth sense and also built advanced sky rim mirrors that use LED lights to see spirits and the most advanced ghost boxes on the market.

Stafford is a U.S. Army veteran with nearly eight years in service as a combat equipment technician and noncommissioned officer. In the army, he was exposed to maintaining mechanical and electronic systems in high-tech combat vehicles, and he found an interest in electronics and microcomputers.

Stafford’s passion for the paranormal began in his early childhood. He has always loved investigating and studying unusual occurrences. Stafford is now on a mission to use technology to find answers to the spooky and unexplained.

Toby Evans
Past Life Regression
Sunday, March 20th at 1 pm.

Toby Evans moved to the Kansas City area in 1987 and established SageBrush Exchange as an Art studio. Workshops were offered on her land incorporating art with Shamanic practices while exploring Native American and Incan Medicine Wheel teachings. With the installation of "The Prairie Labyrinth in 1995", her art expanded to the energetic field, focusing on the land in sacred reciprocity with balancing mind, body, and spirit. 

Her involvement with "soul retrievals"; (A Shamanic practice of reclaiming pieces of self from past traumatic events) prompted her to begin hypnotherapy training in 2000. She is certified with Dr. Brian Weiss as a Past Life hypnotherapist, Dolores Canon as a Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique (QHHT) practitioner, and with The Newton Institute as a Life Between Lives (LBL) Spiritual Regressionist. SageBrush Exchange has evolved into a spiritual consouling practice (counseling and consulting from the Soul’s perspective).

Other offerings include: Akashic Record Readings, Soul-Bridge Crossings – assisting earth-bound souls to crossover to the World of Light, and individual and group Chakra balancing Labyrinth walking meditations.

Toby is an artist, a founding member of the Labyrinth Society and the Art Line Project and author of “Soul-Bridge to Original Light”, “Dead, But Not Gone: Are You Part of the Soul-Bridge to Guide Them Home?”, “Keeper of the Circles: Answering the Call to Wholeness”, and “Chakra Labyrinth Cards”.

Beattie Mansion

~~ Beattie House c.1854

Built as the home of Eliza and Armstrong Beattie both passed away here.

In 1880 sold to the Ladies Union Benevolent Society to become 

"The Home for the Friendless". helping indigent, ladies of ill-repute, 

unwed mothers and orphaned children. 

With so much need, a new wing was added , now 33 rooms.

Later became "The Memorial  Home", for the aged,~many people lived, and died within  these walls..  Later it was a halfway house, and a treatment facility. A volatile mix of substance abusers, mentally ill, and "lost souls" of society. Closed in the 1970s for code, understaffing, and rumors of abuse.  The subject of books, and television; The Beattie Mansion,1120 Main; St. Joseph, Mo. is one of the most haunted places in Missouri. 

Lafayette Row

The buildings were built in the year 1900 and are a part of Saint Joseph's historic history. They have hosted many small business over the years. They were once a cobbler shop, coca cola distributer, Priscillas adult store and a chiropractor office for Dr. Gipe.


Lafayette Row Paranormal Escape was formed because over the last few years paranormal activity has spiked in the buildings. Neighbors have noticed the lights turning off and on by themselves in the middle of the night. Several EMF spikes along with unexplained noises and footsteps can be heard upstairs when there is nobody around. Also objects have been known to move by themselves.
