ARRIVAL:

Noah, John, and Missy arrived at the house at 6:30 pm. They entered the property and loaded their equipment into the Living Room. Randy arrived shortly thereafter and unloaded his equipment into the Living Room as well.

Missy took outside readings while Noah, Randy, and John started setting up their equipment. Once Missy was finished, Noah had John do his sensitive impressions of the house while Randy and Missy went around the house doing baseline EMF and temperature readings. Noah stayed in the Living Room, which would be PIM's base camp, and continued setting up his equipment and began planning where equipment would be placed in the house.

After the baseline readings were completed, John went over his impressions. The group then started placing equipment throughout the house.

At 8:30 pm everyone was in the Basement setting up equipment when Missy and John heard something drop onto the floor on the 1st floor. They said it sounded like an extension cord falling onto the floor. Upon inspection, nothing was noted to be out of place and unfortunately no cameras were running yet so the noise was not captured.

The group finished up in the Basement and were gathering their equipment they would take to the upper floors when Noah realized that he forgot to place his EM Pump in the Wine Cellar and asked Missy and Randy to put it down there for him. At 8:39 pm, as Missy and Randy were coming back up the Basement stairs after placing the EM Pump, Randy thought he heard a growl. Unfortunately this was not captured on any audio recorders that were going at the time.

While the group was placing equipment on the 2nd Floor, at 8:45 pm the alarm pad by the front door started alarming. The group went to the alarm pad and attempted to determine why the system was alarming. There was nothing on the screen stating why the alarm was going off. All the doors and windows were closed. John called the homeowner to inform them what was occurring and to seek advice on how to shut the alarm off. The homeowner was just as confused as PIM was as to why the alarm was going off and wasn't sure how to stop it. Eventually the group had to pull the alarm system off battery backup to stop the alarm.

It was later determined that the power to the alarm system was off and thus the system was on battery backup. The battery that was running the alarm was dying, so the alarm started going off to alert us that this was the case. By pulling the leads to the battery it stopped the alarm since it no longer had any power.

REPORTED ACTIVITIES:

  • Apparition of a couple seen on the stairs to the 2nd Floor
  • Apparition of a woman seen in the Dining Room
  • Creepy feeling reported in the Wine Cellar
  • Creepy feeling reported in the West Bedroom on the 3rd Floor

The group finished setting up their equipment and got everything running. The group then decided to take a break and sat outside to cool off. The group came back in at 9:55 pm, geared up, and began the investigation on the 3rd Floor.

INVESTIGATION:

START TIME: 10:00 pm

LOCATION: 3rd Floor bedroom next to Media Room

Randy had built a device that was designed to relax an individual and for someone with sensitive abilities may help them to be more aware of anything trying to communicate through them. They work by emitting at the same frequencies as our brain waves and there is also a light that is shown on the closed eyes. PIM had not experimented with them with anyone who had sensitive abilities, so it was decided to have John wear the glasses and go through the 14 minute cycle while the remainder of the group conducted an EVP session.

John stated that the experience was quite annoying and he was unable to concentrate while using the glasses. This is interesting as previously on another investigation the glasses had been used by two people without sensitive abilities and they found the experience quite relaxing. PIM does not know is there is anything pertinent about this observation and further testing is necessary.

No other events occurred during the EVP session on the 3rd Floor and the session was ended.

END TIME: 10:21 pm

START TIME: 10:27 pm

LOCATION: Basement

The group spread out in the Basement with Missy in the Wine Cellar, Randy near the Bar, John in the South Room, and Noah in the North Room near the Safe Room. The group allowed a few minutes of control silence to determine what the normal sounds of the building are and then began an EVP session at 10:31 pm.

No activity was noticed during this EVP session and the session was concluded.

END TIME: 11:03 pm

At this point the group decided to take a short break which concluded at 11:38 pm. After the break the group decided to check batteries and it was discovered that several had gone dead. The group replaced batteries from 11:38 pm until 11:50 pm. The group then decided to head to the 2nd Floor to investigate.

START TIME: 11:53 pm

LOCATION: 2nd Floor

The group spread out on the 2nd Floor with Missy in the West Bedroom, Noah on the Landing of the stairs, John on the stairs leading to the 3rd Floor and Randy in the East Bedroom. After a few minutes of control silence, the group started an EVP session at 11:57 pm.

At 12:08 am, Noah heard a high pitched noise. This noise was not captured on any recording devices but after further thought was most likely car brakes or another noise from outside the residence.

While Noah was sitting on the Landing, he noticed the spindles of the railing and thought about the activity that has been reported in that area. There is a phenomenon called corner of the eye effect where items seen out of the corner of the eye appear to look like a human shape and disappear when looked straight on at. Repeating straight lines, things like spindles in a stairway railing, can increase this effect. This is one possibility explaining the reports of seeing a couple on the stairs.

No other events occurred during this session and it was ended shortly thereafter and moved to the Media Room on the 3rd Floor.

END TIME: 12:17 am

START TIME: 12:21 am

LOCATION: 3rd Floor Media Room

The group spread out in the Media Room after ensuring that all the equipment was still running. After a few minutes of control silence, the group began an EVP session. John stated that he thought there were two women standing near where Missy was sitting on the couch. The group attempted to communicate with these women as well as anything else that might have been there. Unfortunately, nothing happened during this session, nor was anything captured upon review of the audio.

By this time it was almost 1:00 am and Randy needed to leave, so the group ended the session and headed back to the 1st Floor.

END TIME: 12:57 am

Noah helped Randy gather up his equipment and take it to his car before bidding him goodbye. John and Missy were taking a break and Noah joined them once Randy had left. The group discussed the investigation up to this point and decided they should go to the Basement again.

START TIME: 1:30 am

LOCATION: Basement

The group decided to try investigating in the west section of the Basement where the bar was located. John, Noah, and Missy spread out in this area and after a few minutes of control silence started and EVP session at 1:42 am.

No events occurred during this EVP session so the group moved back to the east side of the Basement near the Wine Cellar and started a new EVP session there. Once again, no events occurred and the group decided to pick up the equipment from the Basement and end the investigation.

END TIME: 2:15 am

The group packed up the equipment from the rest of the house and loaded it into their car. They finished and left the property at 2:45 am.

EVIDENCE:

AUDIO: None
PHOTO: None
VIDEO: None

CONCLUSION:

PIM had a great time investigating this historic property. Unfortunately, PIM was not able to record any evidence during this investigation. However, there were several strange occurrences that happened that we did not capture and were not able to be explained. Some explanations of the reported activities were able to be found, but not all reports could be debunked. This combined with the strange things that occurred during our investigation leads PIM to believe that more information is needed before any conclusions can be made. PIM hopes that they may be able to return to the property in the future to conduct a follow-up investigation.

PIM would like to thank the owner of the property for allowing us to investigate and hope to be able to return again in the near future.
