|PI KAPPA ALPHA (PIKE) LODGE
CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO
OCTOBER 13, 2007
While participating in the instruction of a two day Ghost Hunting 101 Class with the Adult Education
Department of Southeast Missouri State University (SEMO), PTF Greg Myers & Sandra Oates had the
privilege visiting and conducting an interactive mini-investigation of the well known haunted Pi
Kappa Alpha (Pike) Lodge in Cape Girardeau, MO with the attendees of the Ghost Hunting Class.
We look forward to being able to return to this haunted place for a full investigation in hopes of
collecting further evidence to analyze and substantiate this haunting there.
From the Southeast Missouri State University Phi Kappa Alpha Chapter site at: www.semopikes.com
Pi Kappa Alpha had long been searching for an off-campus building for many functions. In the Fall of
'73 the chapter and its housing corporation found the Lafayette School house on S. Sprigg St. The Pi
Kappa Alpha Memorial Lodge, as it would come to be known, serves as a social place as well as a
post for weekly chapter meetings.
We will be conducting more research concerning this location and property. If you have
information which may help then please contact us.
The SEMO Pi Kappa Alpha (PIKE) Lodge is rumored to be haunted by the spirit of a girl ghost names
Jessica who in the early 1900's met ill fate when this was once the Lafayette Schoolhouse. The
stories vary a bit, but the common denominator in all of them involved the old boiler, coal chute and
the grate above them.
Eye witness accounts and various online legends report that neighbors have seen the spirit of a
little girl through the windows playing jump rope inside or just standing at the front windows
watching when a train passes on the nearby tracks. Another story tells of a young neighbor boy
who came over when the Lodge was having a meeting asking if it was okay for him to be in there
when they were all gone. When the brothers of the Lodge told him no and that was dangerous, the
boy told them he came over many times in the past to play with the little girl there.
Other accounts include strange noises, the lights swaying excessively on their own, open windows
slamming shut or shaking, strange rappings, the unexplainable malfunctioning of electrical
equipment and sinister laughing manifesting where the boilers once were.
We were not able to conduct a full "proper" investigation with the time table we had, however we
did have enough time to conduct a mini-investigation with those who attended the class. Focus
was interactive investigative techniques.
During our mini-investigation we experienced the following:
1. Traveling cold spots.
2. Unexplainable EMF spikes which moved about and reached levels near 10 milligauss.
3. While using two K-2 EMF meters and having two different people hold one each at a good
distance apart, we were able to document interaction with an entity there through "yes" and "no"
questions with one meter/person being "yes" and the other "no". This interaction indicated that
the entity we were in contact with was male, enjoyed us there and became lonely at times. There
was further possible indication through this EMF process and sensitive investigators present that
this may have been the spirit of a PIKE Brother who possibly passed away unexpectedly due to a
tragic event or happening.
NOTE - SCROLL DOWN AND TURN OFF MUSIC BEFORE LISTENING TO EVP'S
Two Class B EVP's were captured during this mini-investigation in the large open room. Both are
well below the 300 hz threshold.
# 1 Here is the raw EVP:
# 1 Here is the slightly cleaned and amplified version:
#1 Here is the Reverse EVP:
# 2 Here is the raw EVP:
# 2 Here is the slightly cleaned and amplified version:
#2 Here is the Reverse EVP:
This is a male voice well below the 100 Hz range. We do not know what it is saying for sure, if you
have any ideas then let us know what you think. We also note that these seem to be forward and
reverse playing EVP's which are unique and many times associated with a Portal Haunting.
It is the opinion of Paranormal Task Force that even with just this mini-investigation which captured
two remarkable EVP's or disembodied voices coupled with the wealth of the unexplainable
interaction of something with the EMF meters is enough to substantiate an actual haunting and the
existence of paranormal activity while were there at this location.
However, follow up investigation(s) with a full regimen of equipment applying both passive and
interactive investigative techniques should be conducted to further determine the type and level
of haunting occurring at this establishment through the collection of further evidence and
experiences. We hope the fine Brothers of Phi Kappa Alpha will have us back to do such in the
Shared evidence and experiences of others who have been at this location would also help as well.
