Photographs:
No photos of evidential value were discovered.


EMF (Electro Magnetic Field):
Standard baseline readings were taken throughout the building with expected spikes near electrical appliances. Constant high EMF fields were present in every room of the home. It is believed that a combination of old wiring and high outside magnetic fields from the power lines in front of the house are causing the elevated fields.

Conclusion:
On this particular date, investigators did not experience any paranormal activity or record any evidence that would indicate a haunting is taking place. Investigators did measure elevated magnetic fields in almost every room of the home and outside around the front and two side areas of the building. These fields are believed to be caused by a combination of old wiring and the high intensity power lines running in front of the home. Elevated magnetic fields could account for some of the activity that has been reported such as seeing moving shadows, headaches and a sense that they are not alone. These fields can not explain other activity, however, such as the door closing by itself or a soda can flying off a table. More information is needed to make a conclusive decision on what is occurring at this residence and ThePPA recommends that the clients look at several factors when activity occurs such as where all of the pets are, who is in the house at the time, what the combined emotional atmosphere is when they activity is noticed and if the neighbors are currently home, all of which could impact what is going on at the home. A log of events should be started if further activity is noticed.
