Me and my husband and my best friend and her husband decided we wanted to go to Hoffman Mansion since my husband has never been there and my friend and I haven't been out there in a long time. We all decided to go. I recently took my husband to see the Joplin Spooklight and we saw it! It changed colors and moved several times. On June 8th probably around midnight, we arrived at Hoffman Mansion. Immediately we heard screaming and scuffles all around us. We heard screaming four times but only two of us heard all four. My husband and my friend only heard the last scream and it was the loudest. We all got spooked after that so we decided to sit in the car and lock the doors and just listen. I happen to look in rear view window to see someone cross the road for just a split second – this person was walking to the big tree that stands in the cemetery. We decided to leave and try to see if we could see the spooklight. We did see it, but it didn't really last that long and disappeared. But right before we left and we were on the road that Hoffman Mansion and the spooklight is on. Me and my best friend were in the back seat and all of the sudden we both heard and saw something running toward the back door so we screamed and my husband put his foot on gas and got out of there. There’s a possibility it was a dog but we did not see any eyes looking back at us. For the people who are thinking yeah right that didn't happen, all I can say is take your ass out there and find out and you'll see for yourself theirs something out there that can't be explained!
