Investigation Date and Duration:
July 11th, 2009       6:30pm -12:00am


Location Status:
This is a two story residence with a walk in attic and full basement built in the late 1800’s occupied by two adults, one child, two cats and a dog.


Reported Activity:

Since the day the client moved in, activity has been occurring in sporadic cycles. Such things as a an interior door knob rattling as if someone was trying to open it when an exterior storm door was closed behind it, shadows being seen and items being moved and later put back in their original place have been experience by the homeowners. Two separate contractors have seen a little girl in one of the bedrooms while no one was present in the house along with something described as a dark shadow walking by a painters floodlight and blocking out the light several times in the same room the little girl has been seen in. The family’s cat has been startled by unseen causes on several occasions and is now afraid to go into the basement after a reported commotion occurred there with just the cat present.

Photographs:

No photos of evidential value were discovered.
Bedroom where a little girl has been seen.   


EMF (Electro Magnetic Field):

Standard baseline readings were taken throughout the building with expected spikes near electrical appliances. Elevated EMF levels were noted in the basement caused by the main power supply to the home which radiated to the first floor to include the couch area. No anomalous EMF’S detected.


Investigator Feelings / Experiences:
Mark Nothing to report
Paulette – while in the middle bedroom of the main floor, Paulette was sitting alone for some time and suddenly got the chills and a creepy kind of feeling. She was quite comfortable up to this point. 
Al – Kept getting chills near doorway to master bedroom every time he walked in or out.



Conclusion:

During the several hours spent at this home on this particular date, investigators were able to rule out any high EMF fields as an alternative cause for activity. No fields above the norm were detected. The cause of the voices being heard could not entirely be identified but two factors came in to play during this investigation. While one investigator walked around the yard talking with the clients, investigators inside the house could not hear the conversations taking place outside. Sound travels well at night and initial thoughts were that outside conversations may be heard from inside the home. Although we still can not completely rule this out, it did not seem to be the case on this particular night. Secondly, one of our recorders picked up and EVP of what sounds like a little boy in the kitchen area of the house. This would add some validity to the reports that the voices are coming from within the house rather than outside. It also validates the claims by the family that they have seen a young boy in the past and the arm and hand of a small child more recently.

The only personal experience noted on this night were of Al and Paulette getting the chills in the bedroom areas of the home on the main floor. No other activity was observed along with those feelings.

Based on one EVP being captured, ThePPA feels that at least two of the claims of the clients may be validated, that being the sound of voices from inside the house and the report of seeing a little boy, but that alone does not give enough factual evidence to determine if a haunting is taking place at this time. It does give sufficient cause to investigate further to try and determine if there is an active or residual haunting taking place or if some other type of paranormal activity is causing the events.
