Paranormal team investigates county

In this little corner of the country, hunting usually means camouflage, guns and four legged creatures. But hunting, according to the Van Zandt County Paranormal Investigators, means looking for things or spirits that go bump in the night.

Normally, people tend to shy away from the spooks and spirits that make the hair on the back on one’s neck go up, or that cause that eerie sixth sense feeling when one walks into a room. But, the Gatzert family of Canton is anything but normal.

Alisa Gatzert and her family are to put it bluntly, ghost hunters; and they hunt ghosts and spirts right in Van Zandt County and in parts of Texas.

Gatzert and her family operate the paranormal investigation service right out of Canton, but say that the most haunted place in the county is in Wills Point, down Farm-to- Market 751 headed towards Quinlan.
