Crossroads Ghost Society - Old Yoakum Hospital
Gary Clendennen, of Victoria Texas, has been a Paranormal Investigator for a few amazing years now! He started with the "Old Yoakum Hospital Group" when he and his partner Robie Lowery took it over. They brought in several more friends to complete their group...with Gary & Robie being the acting managers of the team. Their investigations have lead to some of the most haunting discoveries you are ever likely to see. The Yoakum hospital is a legend and Gary is fast becoming one himself.
Last March Gary decided to start up his own Paranormal Team. He gathered the best folks in the mid south and called them the "Crossroads Ghost Society", also located in Victoria! In addition to his team hunts, he is always around when the Old Yoakum Hospital Group holds monthly "Open House Events". He wants everyone to know that for a small donation, you can hunt all night at the hospital! They also lease out the hospital to visiting teams for a reasonable fee for up to 3 nights! Having two Ghost Teams and a Real Haunted Hospital makes Gary a happy man. In his own words: "Does it get any better!?"

Dakota Lawrence is a gifted Clairvoyant Medium and Psychic Paranormal Investigator from Shreveport Louisiana. Although he believes in the paranormal, he keeps a skeptic stance on it as well. Dakota has a history of incredibly gifted psychics in his family and at the very early age of 12, he knew that he was gifted himself and he even began doing readings for others. He embraces his Native American family heritage and with every reading, he respectfully approaches his native ancestors and asks for assistance and guidance. When Dakota was 15 years old, he had a life changing moment in that he realized that not everyone had the gift that he and his family has. Even though he had been doing readings since age 12, he decided that at age 15 to begin doing his readings professionally and he consistently receives praises from his clients. He attributes his gifts and talents to God and serves his clients with the utmost respect. Dakota has been guiding people on matters from life questions, to lost loved ones and missing person cases.
His up-beat personality and Southern Style has made him one of the most recognized readers within the Paranormal and Metaphysical community. Dakota’s style, unlike most psychics, is straight forward and honest as he explains everything to you in ways you can understand. He believes that honesty is the best policy and a little bit of edginess never hurt either. Each reading with Dakota is a truly unique experience. His readings are what he calls a “soul level” reading which helps the client understand what is going on in their life and what is going on around them, which in turn, will help them improve their own lives and personal enlightenment.
