We know contacting a paranormal group is not easy. Investigating Oklahoma’s Paranormal understands the kind of stress and ridicule unexplained events can create at your home or business. It is our primary goal to help those in need, experiencing undetermined circumstances, such as spirits, ghosts, hauntings, and or other “worldly” entities.
IOKP has several years of experience specializing in unexplained paranormal occurrences and hauntings. We practice a high level of confidentiality and professionalism with each case. It is IOKP’s intention to witness and collect all types of paranormal data for scientific documentation with the latest equipment.
As a team, we are focused on high quality service, and the client's satisfaction. IOKP never charges for a private investigation. However we do conduct fund-raising events, as well as host a variety of public investigations that help cover our expenses for equipment, batteries, and location rental fees.

Kathi (Team Lead and Business Admin)
Kathi was born in St. Paul, Minnesota and moved to Oklahoma in her late 20’s. She always loved ghost stories as a child. This led her into studying ghosts, haunted places and other paranormal research. Kathi started investigating in 2010. She has been with IOKP since 2012 and wants to advance the science of the paranormal and prove spirits walk amongst us.
Christine (Paranormal Investigator)
Christine was born and raised about 30 miles from Gettysburg, PA. It was pretty much a for sure thing she would be drawn to the paranormal while traipsing around the battlefields as a child. Christine joined IOKP in 2016 and is back after a brief hiatus in sunny Florida.
Mandy (Paranormal Investigator, Marketing and PR)
Born and raised in Oklahoma, Mandy grew up with a love of history and an inquisitive, curious nature. Her interest in exploring things unknown grew from personal experiences dating back to her very early childhood where she quickly realized she noticed things that others around her were unaware of. As an adult, her intrigue grew and she began to investigate. In 2015 Mandy met and joined IOKP. She was overjoyed to find others who shared her interest and pursued investigations with integrity and fun. As an empath and investigator, Mandy enjoys helping others learn and not be frightened by what they experience but can’t explain.
Dana (Paranormal Investigator and Merchandise Procurement)
As a team member of IOKP since 2019, Dana has always had a fascination with the unseen, unknown, and unexplained. Feeling alone as a child in the living world, Dana felt there was always “something” with her, although she couldn’t see or talk to it directly. Working with crystals, oils, and positive energy, Dana’s empathic abilities allow her to communicate with spirit’s energy so that the living have a better understanding that they’re not alone. As an IOKP member, her goal is to validate other’s experiences in the paranormal, help them to understand the paranormal, and to spread positive energy to an otherwise criticized world.
Jason "Jeep" (Tech Manager)
Jason goes by “Jeep”. Born in New Orleans, Jeep grew up in Norman, Oklahoma but lived all over the Southern States. His paranormal experiences started as a child. His Christian Faith started around the same time. Two different churches ordained him in the ministry. He served as Youth Pastor for years and now helps the team by monitoring surveillance cameras, reviewing video and audio, leading public ghost hunting tours and private investigations. Jason has taken a step back for the moment to focus on his own personal goals and ambitions in life, but still remains an active member of the group.
Steve (Honorary Member)
As team member to IOKP since 2018, Steve has always had a fascination with the unknown, unusual and unexplained phenomenon out of the norm. From the nighttime apparition visitations as a young child, memories of past lives (which the connections weren’t made until much later in life), and always having empathic abilities, Steve’s connection to other’s energy and nature has always been apart of his life. As an IOKP team member his goal is to validate other’s experiences in the paranormal, bring an understanding of the paranormal to others, and as a Lightworker, create and spread positive energy to others in need. Steve has taken a break to spend more time with his family and to pursue his own personal goals and ambitions in life.
