The Legend:

A woman who liked in the township kept her husbands body after he passed away.  Using black magic, she attempted to bring him back to life.  The town came to bury the body on multiple occasions.  Each time the witch would go to the cemetery and dig up her dead husband.  She would drag the corpse back to their home.  The township finally entombed the husband’s coffin in a casing of concrete.  The legend says that the witch haunts the grave.  Noises such as screams and footsteps can be heard near the grave.  Other reports say that rocks are hurled towards anyone that disturbs the grave.  A curse was said to be placed upon the grave by the witch.  Anyone who touches it will be possessed by a demon.

Side Note:

A legend also says that the cemetery is haunted by the spirit of a teenager who died when his car was wrecked at a nearby bridge.  The kid is said to walk the cemetery still today.

The Investigation:

A scouting mission was conducted by Candy Riggs and myself.  We took pictures of the grave during the day to get accurate pictures of the scripture written on the side of the concrete coffin:

The verse written on both sides of the grave, Samuel 12:23, seems to support the urban legend.

“But now he is dead; why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.”

During the daytime scouting, Candy and I noticed trinkets and coins placed around the grave.  We speculate this might be some kind of offering to the witch.  We did not find any reference to this anywhere on the net.

We conducted a night time investigation at a later date.  The investigators:  Cindy, Trevor, Leila and I made a sweep of the surrounding area looking for hits on the EMF meter.  An EVP session was conducted around and on the grave.  The trinkets and money around the grave were missing on this second visit.  A deeper dive into the surrounding graves was initiated.  Our teams findings were logged in our case files.

Impressions:

The fantastical nature of the legend could not be substantiated anywhere in an official record.  If the township did have a witch that was practicing necromancy, she might not have been alone.  As found in other areas of Oklahoma, cells of pagan witches hide in plan sight.  It is within the realm of possibility that whoever left the trinkets were doing so as some kind of offering or request to the spirit of the dead witch.

Sailing the Waters of Consequence

On April 27th, 2018 I wrote an open letter to the fans of the Kenpo History Channel:


Fans of the Kenpo History Channel,

The following link came to my attention: http://kam4inc.com/mediaPg2.html

In this link it outlines several concerning aspects in the direction of KAM IV Inc It gives information on successful lawsuits, compulsory rank changing and mandatory monthly rate to sustain in the KAM IV Inc. branded I.K.K.A. To protect those that I’ve interviewed and myself, I have taken down all documentaries and interviews from the KHC.

Side Note:
I was asked to give KAM IV leadership a consultation in 2015 on how to overcome challenges with communication in regards to the Kenpo community. I did three different consultations, all free of charge. In each, my recommendations and direction opted for a peaceful outreach, a separation from litigious tactics and to show compassion to the loyal followers of Mr. Parker. My final proposal was to have the family apologize to the Kenpo community for their legal tone and start fresh. This path was rejected. When I retired as a teacher in 2016 it was due to health concerns. Opposed to my public announcement that I was retiring my 4th degree as a personal choice of honor, in reality I did this because of the direction KAM IV Inc. was taking. By fading away quietly it allowed my students to integrate themselves into a KAM IV Inc. affiliated association without any political drama. Indeed it was a matter of honor, but it wasn’t honest. There is no longer a need to keep up the facade. I wish those on both sides of this issue my sincere hope that they will find peace and happiness.


A bigger problem presented itself that stretched beyond my work on the documentaries and interviews.  Now my former students were left questioning what was going to happen next?  If they stuck with a Kam IV school, how much would they have to pay?  What would happen if they were ever kicked out?  If they kept doing American Kenpo and they decided to step away from Kam IV would they have to forever go underground to avoid a copyright lawsuit?

With the entire system, names of techniques and forms, Mr. Parker’s name, patches and more being copyrighted it left my former students and past students spiraling.  During my 25 years of martial arts, 16 of which was in American Kenpo, I was forced to go through seven different brand changes.  On average, my students were forced to learn a different way to do techniques and forms every two years on average.  If you are from outside EPAK this might sound strange.  The reasons were seldom honorable.  Usually it was because the instructor suddenly wanted thousands of dollars for belt tests, they wanted to change how they did the art to affiliate with another organization in order to gain a promotion or similar boon.

Every new instructor came with a change to the system.  In general you would get the same speech, “Okay what you are doing is fine, but it isn’t how Parker showed me.”  You would get left feeling dejected and sub standard.  Your training time would halt forward motion, and months would be used in relearning past techniques.  Many times I would have a portion of my class leave just out of frustration.

In response to this new problem I put out a letter to all my former students and all the students I had trained in my last 15 years of martial arts.  Here is an excerpt:


May 31st, 2018

Haikei,

On March 2016 I retired from Kenpo after 25 years due to medical issues and relinquished my 4th degree black belt.  I placed my students in the hands of one of the top American Kenpo teachers in the world.  Due to changes in the landscape, I’m coming out of retirement and issuing new ranks to former students under a personal traditional karate program.  Let me explain why: 

As of this month the Parker family is re-instituting the I.K.K.A. (Parker’s original organization).  They are making every school owner paying a percentage per student to the Parker family.  If they refuse and still teach, the Parker’s will sue them.  Judgments have already been awarded. 

With that news I have made a decision.  I’m coming out of retirement and reopening my school.  It will NOT be an American Kenpo school, but a traditional Japanese themed karate program.  For former students who wish to be ranked according to their time and energy they have put in, I will be doing an assessment and ceremony.  This is a way of correcting the long and taxing year’s students put into the system without receiving the rank they deserve.  If you are interested in being re-ranked by me, you only have to reply and a time will be set up for you to come in for ranking.  This is free of cost and you do NOT have to join my class.  You could simply walk in, take a non-physical assessment where I review your time in the system, then assign you a rank.  The normal time it would take for an average Japanese student in a Karate program to attain a black belt is three years.  I will be taking that into consideration when assigning rank.  For those of you that wish to take a physical test to go with your rank reassessment, we can schedule a test.  You will not be required to perform any material that you don’t already know.  If you are already a member of another school, you must present a letter of recommendation from your current teacher for you to receive your rank reassignment.  I want to emphasize, this is free of charge.  I’m doing this as a matter of personal honor. 

All ranking re-assignments, assessments and testing (if requested) will be conducted at my new school location located.  You will need to contact me ahead of time before showing up.  My number is XXXXXXXXX.  If you have any questions, please call me.

Sincerely,

Robert Luellen
Luellen Ichizoku Karate


The response to this move was very positive from my former student base and appreciative.  Everyone made careful decisions on how they wanted to proceed.  One such man was Johnny McLain.  He had spent well over 14 years training with me.  During this time he was deployed to Afghanistan to serve his country.  He was injured and was forced to go into a limited disability.  He wasn’t detoured and continued to train in American Kenpo when he returned.  His path was cut short when the organization I was in did yet another political maneuver and changed associations.  John was left having to relearn techniques.  With his disability and a full time job, his body simply started giving out.  His total time in the martial arts was over 23 years with no black belt to show for it.  All because of Kenpo politics.  He choose to get the assessment with me.  I’m proud to say his long journey is over.  He is a black belt.  I could not be more honored to give out my first black belt of my career to this man.

I’m not sure how long my health will hold out, but I plan on hitting the afterburners until I slam into a wall.  In this class, people are learning solid Karate without any risk of politics.  They are learning in the traditional way I was brought up as a child from my original Sensai David Whisnant.  The teacher shows and the student listens.  Don’t worry about what your belt level requirements are, just train.  Belts will come.  All discipline and no politics.

In closing, I have a father and son in my school now.  Seeing them bond together on the mat, that is the most honorable responsibility I could have as an instructor.  These people will never again know politics, only Bushido.

Profile: The Mighty Ants Lipanovic

My name’s Bo Luellen,.  I’m an author and part owner of the Tulsa & Beyond Paranormal along with Candy Riggs.  This article outlines the profile of a personality that will be in my upcoming book, Mr. Ants Lipanovic.

Not Quite Finding Bigfoot

In 2012 I was hosting a paranormal podcast called The 188 Garrison.  I covered all manner of supernatural elements.  When Finding Bigfoot hit Animal Planet, it was a huge hit.  I booked Cliff Barackman onto the show.  In the weeks leading up to his appearance I began researching some of the shows latest episodes.  The Season 2  Australian Yowie installment had just aired.  I invited two Australians that were involved in the episodes production, Mr. Ants Lipanovic and Mr. Ray Doherty onto my show.  It was a great program, but after the show was over I got the real scoop.  The following is what happened during the filming of that episode in his own words.
 (Upper Left:  Ray Doherty, Upper Right:  Ants Liponavic, Bottom:  Finding Bigfoot Crew with Ants and Ray)

Behind the Scenes in the Outback

“The Finding Bigfoot show was coming to Brisbane.  To my delight I had an insider who was invited to the town hall meeting.  This was the gathering the show conducts during filming to get local reports of Sasquatch activity.  Unfortunately my friend wasn’t able to attend, but he offered to give me his spot. 

He said, “Go on.  Have a good time.  Let me know how it goes!”

Sasquatch had been a passion of mine since I was a kid.  At an early age I would watch and read anything I could get my hands on about the creature.  In my adulthood I took my interest to a new level.  I began looking for the Australian version, The Yowie. 

Naturally I jumped at the chance.  Being a good mate, I sneaked a few fellow Yowie hunters in with me.  You know, as all good Australians would do. So down to Brisbane we went.  

I took this rare opportunity seriously.  The Finding Bigfoot team were a bunch of heroes to me.  I was itching to get in and say hello to Bobo.  The chance to meet the most famous crew out in the field of that time period was electrifying.

When I arrived I was told the filming was running late.  It seemed it was taking the production crew longer than expected to get organized. While waiting we all managed to meet the cast.  It was a good time.  The Finding Bigfoot team had a few pictures with us, shared some stories and napped a few group pictures.  

The production team said everyone that had showed up for the Town Hall Meeting could have a refreshment or two on their tab.  Here is a teachable moment for any Yanks that come to visit.  You should never say something like this to an Aussie.

Three hours later we had a few more than one or two drinks.  Everyone had ordered Angus steak dinners, and kept drinking. During this set up period we had met some of the other folks who where there for the Town Hall Meeting.  There were dozens of Yowie witnesses, but I had heard of any of them.  After visiting with each of them, I find out two thirds of  them were actors! Well that’s it! Another drink please.  I was in shock.  The only thing I could do to calm my disappointment was to get me some dessert on Animal Planets tab.  

Finally it was time to start filming.  Jesus, sitting in the crowd watching all of this happen was a eye opener for sure.  I watched one guy nearly fall over from too much rum.  The only thing that kept him from falling asleep was the promise of another glass.  I’m a gentlemen enough to not name names, but you know who you are.

So now the crew was rolling film.  Scanning the room the Finding Bigfoot crew asked, “Who has had an experience?”  You know what?  All those actors put there hands up.  Then as usual “wooooooo” from the four main cast members with the star saying, “That’s a lot!”

I’m thinking bullshit ya wankers I know that most of them are fake.  Listening to these people give their accounts and knowing what was really going on was just disappointing. They used fake accounts instead of genuine witness testimony.    I was so disappointed.   We had even invited the Finding Bigfoot cast to come out to our site during their week of filming. I couldn’t’ back down now.  I feel like I’ve become a part of the hoax.

The night drew to a close with the mapping of peoples fake accounts in the can.  Then the day arrived when the Finding Bigfoot crew came to our investigation site. Mind you we are all set to do an over night experience, just like on the show.  We had no longer showed them around when we got shunted off.  They said it was because the catering truck was on its way to feed the crew.  So we left very disappointed and a little bewildered.  We had no idea what happened out thee after that. 

We might have been been used for our site, being a part of that set up Town Hall but I’m not not mad.  I just laugh it off.  You see rumor has it our tab at the bar was around $2500 dollars.  Match point Animal Planet.”

– Ants Lipanovic

Paranormal Odyssey

After that conversation we started a podcast together.  Ants and I worked on the Paranormal Odyssey podcast for over a year together.  We interviewed a multitude of high profile ghost hunters, UFO investigators and Bigfoot enthusiasts.  It was an honor.  He is a Brother to me.  A drunk, ugly and incredibly cool Brother.

 

Profile: The Tracker – Chad Scott

My name’s Bo Luellen,.  I’m an author and part owner of the Tulsa & Beyond Paranormal along with Candy Riggs.  This article outlines the profile of a personality that will be in my upcoming book, Mr. Chad Scott.

Halloween Party Gone Right

In 2008 I meet Chad at a Halloween party I was hosting for a large contingent of paranormal investigative team owners in the Tulsa area.  He had agreed to come because he was interested in joining my team and it was a good way to get to know him.

At the party we all took turns telling our best ghost stories from the last years hunts.  When it got around to Chad’s turn to tell a story he said, “I really don’t have any good ghost stories, but I have these.”

Chad pulled out a box from under his chair.  In it were six foot casts of a creature no one had seen before.  Most were over a foot long.  They looked humanoid but not.  We passed them around to sounds of gasps from everyone attending.

I asked, “How did you get these?”

He said, “I got them in Sulfur.  I have a bathtub full of them at the house.”

Chad did have a bathtub full of them.  He also had more physical evidence of the creature than I had ever seen.  Ever since then I have followed his exploits and made him a great friend.  With his help I went on several field investigations into Sulphur.

Bio of Chad Scott

Chad’s interest in the “unexplained” began around age 11-12 when he discovered a collection of Time Life books on unexplained mysteries along with a copy of the Amityville Horror. He had a Pentecostal preacher for a father, so he kept the books hidden.  When he moved back to Texas the next year his grandfather began teaching him how to track, wilderness observation, and survival skills.

Limb formation found near Ketchum, OK on 5/29/11

After attending college, he spent most of my time in the woods reconnecting with the lessons his grandfather taught him. It was during this time that he had his first encounter with Bigfoot. He decided to put his passion for tracking and the outdoors to work in a partnership with his desire to get to the bottom of the Bigfoot mystery.
Since that time he has investigated Bigfoot in Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, California, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, and Tennessee.  He also investigated  large cats, wolves and bears in areas they aren’t supposed to be in.

He has been tracking for over 30 years.  He has performed professional investigation work (private investigator, safety investigator, forensic interviewing and interrogation, and corporate loss prevention) for over 25 years.  Through it all he has been steadily investigating mysterious phenomena for over 20 years.

Paranormal Notes: Historic Camelot Hotel

My name’s Bo Luellen, and I’m part owner of the Tulsa & Beyond Paranormal along with Candy Riggs. 

About a week ago I released some of the photos’s from our Camelot Hotel investigation on a few social media outlets.  There was a great deal of interest in the case, if for nothing else, to see the pictures of our Oklahoma landmark.   Here is the full story with photo’s.

Case Name:  Camelot – Date:  August 13th, 2005

Case Reseach:

The Camelot Hotel has been a shining landmark for Oklahoma from 1965 to 2007 when it was demolished.  Here are some key elements of the hotel –

Credit:  The Tulsa World

  • It was build in October of 1965 and had 330 rooms.
  • President Richard Nixon and Elvis Presley were among the Camelot’s VIP guests.
  • The Republican governors’ conference was held there in 1968 and local high schools booked their proms at the hotel.
  • The hotel even made a cameo appearance in the 1982 Matt Dillon film, “Tex.”
  • Its design reflected Old England in the spirit of its name sake, Camelot.
  • The hotel drawbridge lowered and a doorman costumed as the Keeper of the Realm welcomed guests.
  • It cost 5 million to build.
  • In the courtyard, a replica of Excalibur, the sword which King Arthur withdrew from the stone in the fable, was embedded in a 700-pound boulder.
  • Every room had a phone, including the bathrooms.
  • Each of the four luxurious bi-level tower suites on the eighth floor featured a living room with a bar, poker table, color television and powder room on the lower level with the bedroom (with a black-and-white TV) and bathroom upstairs. Entrance to the suites, named Musk Ox, Mandril, Unicorn and Walrus, was through double doors with huge brass handles imported from Spain.
  • The public rooms were just as posh. In the swanky Red Lion Club, guests were served by “lionesses” decked out in gold lame pelts with red ostrich feather tails. The bar had thick plaid carpeting, stained-glass windows and red swivel chairs upholstered with black leather.
  • The lobby was a modern take on King Arthur’s Court, complete with a Round Table and a throne.
  • The crumbling castle was purchased by followers of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who renamed it Heaven on Earth Plaza Hotel with plans to transform it into a school. They offered to rid Tulsa of crime through Transcendental Meditation for $26 million a year. City officials declined.
  • Protesters from local churches marched near the Camelot when 13 contestants competed in the Miss Gay Oklahoma Pageant in the hotel’s Great Hall.
  • It was condemned in 1996.
  • QuikTrip Corp. purchased the 5.9-acre property and demolished the hotel in 2007. Five years later, the convenience store chain built a store on the site

 The below pictures are from searches on the web.

 Case Investigation File:

In early 2005, word came around that the Camelot’s future was not hopeful.  The building had a history of haunting’s.  Reports of spirits being seen on the top floors was always popular around the camp fire.  Nothing solid had ever been collected.  I decided that it was now or never to get an investigation going.

I phoned the realator for the building asking if I could do an investigation.  We were flat out refused.  This made sense.  They were trying to sell the building so the last thing they needed was to have a team putting paranormal evidence on the internet.

One week later I phoned the realtor back again, this time telling him I was an investor looking to possibly buy the property.  Now this was a lie, but not entirely.  If they were willing to sell the building for 20 bucks, I could handle that with a payment plan.  Incidentally the realtor did tell me they were looking for 4.1 million for the property.

On August 13th, 2005 we arrived at the property to meet the realtor and the security guard.  Our team was dressed in business casual to fit the part of investors.  After some waiting we discovered the realtor wasn’t going to be joining us and the security guard had a family emergency.  I was informed that the front gate was unlocked and we could come and go as we wished.

My team immediately changed into street clothes and entered the building.  Team Members:  Bo Luellen (team owner), Chris Rowe (team owner), Alicia Murphy, and Taj were present.  We entered as a group, but were unprepared for the level of vandalism we were about to see.

The 1st floor was coated with layers of broken glass.  Every window in the first floor had been shattered.  This made walking very dangerous.  The glass had a tendency to make you slip, and falling wasn’t something you wanted to do.  Gang graffiti and evidence of homeless living in the building was everywhere.

The further we went up the less vandalism there was.  Parts of the building were burned in what looked like isolated fires.  Doors were kicked open and rooms were used by those desperate enough use the hotel for shelter.

Hints at the grandeur of the place were all around.  Incredibly beautiful 70’s architecture shown through in areas.  The bar area looked like a 70’s disco palace if the Knights of Old needed a place to get down.  In the center of the dance floor were circle seating so if you got tired of dancing, you could take a break.  Just incredible.

When we reached the penthouses we found that looters had stolen most of the decorative items in the rooms.  We did find a bill for a guest that was slide under the door that dated to the 80s’.  It was like finding a time capsule.

When we reached the roof we took a picture of downtown Tulsa (pictured below).  Looking down you could easily see the magnificence of the shield shaped pool.  It was rumored that the builder of the hotel wanted miniature crocodiles to be placed in the pool, but found no way of keeping them alive.

On our second sweep of the first floor we found a box of fliers left behind by the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.  In it he outlined his goals for Tulsa.  We collected a few of them for historical context.

In the end we did not get any evidence of a haunting.  EMF meters were normal.  No EVP’s were found in audio collected.  All photographic evidence showed only normal dust particles.

Unfortunately when my co-owner left, he destroyed years of evidence, including the video and audio of the Camelot investigation.   This is a shame because we captured the beautiful grandeur that still existed in areas of the hotel.  The below photos are the only ones I have left.  To my knowledge, we were the last paranormal team to enter the building.

The below pictures are owned by Alicia Murphy.

The next book in the series will be the nation of Vallonde.  This dark land is home to the meaner things in life.  Vampires, werewolves, mummies and things that go bump in the night plague the uninhabited forests of this land.  The people huddle together in small villages and only travel during the day.  The coastal towns are ports for pirates and swashbucklers.  The land of Vallonde is a homage to the old monster movies, such as Boris Karloff’s Dracula, of the 1930’s.  It is in this land that the epic history of Ash De’Lioncore tamed the land and shaped its future.
