A team of ghost hunters with the South East Paranormal Investigators Association partook in a preliminary investigation at the Jacksonville USO, June 24.

The purpose of the investigation was to try and capture evidence of any paranormal activity, which would be shown at the fundraiser investigation event with Sy Fy Channel’s Amy Bruni of Ghost Hunters, Sy Fy’s John and Chris Zaffis of Haunted Collector and Eric and Jessica Dionne of SEPIA, hosted by Ideal Event Management, scheduled for July 30.


“This is the first time the USO has ever been investigated, and I’m excited to see what can find,” said Jessica Dionne, a paranormal investigator with SEPIA.

The SEPIA team arrived with gadgets such as voice recorders, cameras and infrared video cameras that were used to monitor and record every second of the investigation. The investigators covered four hours of video and audio recording using four separate video cameras each.

“We have 16 hours of footage that we have to review, and this preliminary investigation will give a chance to catch something we can use during the presentation in July,” said Dionne.

The investigation, scheduled for July 30, is open to anyone who wants a chance to try something most people only see on TV. Participants will be able to take photos, get autographs and talk to the stars from Sy Fy during the meet-and-greet, as well as a period for questions and answers. Participants will then breakup into groups to kick off the investigation, and at the end of the event everyone is free to peek around wherever they want.
