Location: Thornhurst, PA - Lackawanna County



Investigation Date and Duration:
December 13th, 2008   Arrive 7:00 PM/ Depart 1:30 AM

 

 

Reported Activity:
Shortly after the client’s father died, a picture of the client’s son flew across the room from unknown causes. Black shadows have been seen passing by doorways. A full, transparent apparition has been observed at the doorway of the master bedroom and also at the doorway to the downstairs bedroom. The client’s young son has reported seeing his deceased grandfather in various parts of the home on several occasions. The client felt like she was slapped on the rear end on one occasion and felt like she was being pulled out of bed on another. A child’s motion sensor would activate by itself when placed in the doorway to the master bedroom and shut off by itself. Two family dogs also start barking a lot for no apparent reason
.

 

Location Status:
This is a two story, three bedroom home currently occupied by two adults and two children.

Conclusion:

During the course of this investigation, we did not capture any audio or video evidence of a haunting or any other paranormal activity as reported by the client. Investigators were able to attribute the client’s motion detector going off to its placement on the floor.  Investigators were able to duplicate this activity with our own motion sensors and, once moved off the floor, the motion sensors did not activate. No personal experiences were reported by our investigators and the home felt very comfortable. Though we were not able to capture the reported activity, we in no way discredit the accounts that have been provided and ThePPA considers the witnesses to be credible.
