Be a ghost hunter for the night while searching for the unknown during a public paranormal
investigation of the historic and haunted Tri-County Restaurant & Truck Stop in Villa Ridge, MO
(about 40 miles west of St. Louis right off of Hwy 44) with team members of Paranormal Task

Tri-County Truck Stop has been featured on SyFy’s “Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files” segment
“Truck Stop Terror”, Fox 2 News, The Missourian newspaper and in several books.  Paranormal
Task Force has been featured in various documentaries and productions which have aired on
SyFy, Chiller, Travel Chanel and more.  Such shows and productions include "Children of the
Grave", "The Haunted Boy (The Exorcist File)", “Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files” segment
“Truck Stop Terror”, "Ghost Adventures" special 100th episode, and more.

This once Route 66 roadside icon formerly known as “The Diamonds” Restaurant has had its
share of tragic moments throughout its past.  Started by a young law student with ambitions and
dreams as a roadside stand selling plums in the early 1900’s, it grew to being the world’s
largest roadside restaurant in its heyday.   The current building, built in 1950 after the previous
building burnt to the ground in the late 1940’s, became the Tri-County Restaurant and Truck
Stop in 1970 after “The Diamonds” relocated to be nearer to the newly opened Interstate

Before closing its doors to the public in September of 2006, employees and customers alike
were experiencing a plethora of paranormal activity.  Such experiences and reports included
full-bodied apparitions, eerie shadow figures, objects levitating from one table to another,
kitchen appliances turned off and on, people touched by unseen forces, children reporting
seeing a bloody monster on the stairway, disembodied voices and so much more.  Paranormal
Task Force (formerly Missouri Paranormal Research) investigations of 2006 yielded some of the
most phenomenal visual and audible captures to date, validating both employee and customer
experiences at this spine-chilling location.

A pre-investigative meeting and tour will start at 6:00 p.m. to present the historical & haunted
history of the Tri-County Restaurant and Truck Stop. Then the investigation will begin about
8:00 p.m. and conclude at 4 a.m.  Midnight snacks and refreshments will be provided.
