Ghosts and Hautings

Author and Director of Branson Paranormal Chasers
Author Wesley Fox is a guide for Branson Ghost and Legends Tour and
the director of Branson Paranormal Chasers. Wesley, along with his team of
ghost hunters, investigate phenomena pertaining to ghosts and hautings. The organization uses both simple and high-tech electronic equipment to document and substantiate their experiences.  Branson Paranormal Chasers investigate both public places and private residences, and although the organization is based outside Branson Missouri, the group is willing to travel to investigate haunted sites around the state.  Wesley believes that skepticism is healthy, and that all reasonable explanations should be ruled out prior to declaring an experience to be paranormal in nature.  

Wesley has authored two books. The Dark Craft was published in the fall of 2012. It is available on Amazon.com. His new book, House of Echoes is a story based onunexplainable events that happened to his family in 1983. House of Echoes will be available this spring on Amazon.com.
