Grey Cloud Island Town Board members nixed an offer to investigate whether there are spirits in the township cemetery.
Cory Miller, director of Twin Cities Paranormal Investigations, said the company wants to film a documentary to determine the validity of a story about 12 nuns being buried in the Grey Cloud cemetery with one always missing. His group also wanted to investigate another story about a gravesite where there is a bare spot where grass doesn't grow.
“There are no bare spots in the cemetery,” said Dick Adams, town board chair.
Board members turned down the offer at their October meeting.
Allowing the investigative documentary would be disrespectful to people whose loved ones are buried in the cemetery, said board member Paul Schoenecker.
Due to haunted stories circulating on the Internet, the cemetery generates interest and uninvited visitors around Halloween. Schoenecker said he is concerned — or just kidding — that the paranormal organization might actually find something and dramatically increase the interest in the secluded, rural cemetery.
