This week we told you about Mike and Cindy Jacobus, the founders of Mclennan County Paranormal Investigations. They’re ghost hunters--yep just like the reality TV show--and they’ve started their own Ghost Tour in Waco. From its fame as “Six Shooter Junction” in the 1800s to the Tornado that leveled downtown in 1953, Waco has its fair share of ghoulish stories. And the Jacobus couple are here to tell them.

From its inception as a convenient place to drive cattle across the Brazos to the Tornado that leveled downtown in 1953, Waco has a lot of stories. Some of them more ghoulish than others. Tomorrow night a Waco couple—who happen to moonlight as ghost hunters—will kick-off a monthly ghost tour, telling some of those stories. And as  KWBU’s Ryland Barton reports, the couple says they’ve found some haunted buildings…right in downtown Waco.
