Family Upset Ghost Tour Includes Death Location

A Topeka man is upset that a ghost tour charged people to enter a site where his grandfather was shot to death while working as a police officer.

Ghost Tours if Kansas hosted an event at Topeka’s Moose Lodge earlier this month. The lodge is where Clarence Shields, a police officer, was shot to death in April 1955 when he surprised two burglars.

Shields’ grandson, Joey Little, says his family is bothered because charging admission made the site an entertainment venue.

Cathy Ramirez, owner of Ghost Tours of Kansas, says she charges admission for all of her tours. She says three quarters of the proceeds went to the Moose Lodge for maintenance, with the rest going to her and her team.
