Ghost stories abound during Halloween — but one central Iowa organization spends all year trying to hunt down things that go bump in the night. Joseph Leto is the founder of “DIEPART,” which stands for Des Moines Iowa Extreme Paranormal Advanced Research Team. Leto says DIEPART sets out to explain the “paranormal.”
Leto says they’re things that aren’t normal, chairs floating, water falling from a place where it shouldn’t fall. Leto says he goes out with a team of three or four people, and usually come up with an answer. He says 99-percent of the time they can come up with a rational explanation. “You know like trees rubbing up against a widow’s house.” In that case Leto says they may cut down the tree. Leto says there is that other one-percent of the time when they can’t really explain what’s going on.
Leto says they scratch their head and can’t figure it out. He says they’ve had cases where they’ve seen items move, seen light shoot through houses, or heard noises and voices they can’t account for. Leto says if they have something that’s really hard to explain, they may refer the person to a priest. Leto says he’s been chasing the paranormal for 10 years and started this business three years ago to get some help.
Leto says his team does the investigation for free. Leto says they don’t charge, as he says they’re trying to help people and debunk the problems as much as they can without sensationalizing things. Leto says they try to use science to help people. Leto says they ask potential clients a series of questions before taking the case and also have psychotherapist that interviews clients to be sure it’s not just something going on in their mind.
