Private two story residence occupied by three adults and one infant.





Reported Activity:
The clients have reported hearing voices, seeing shadows, and footsteps up and down the stairs. The family has reported their dog seemingly barks at something when nothing is there and has an aversion to going into the basement. On several occasions, the clients have heard a woman singing softly over their baby monitor when their baby started crying in the middle of the night. When the baby's room was checked, the singing would stop and no one was found in the room. This singing was also audibly heard by another family member on another night. The baby's bedroom door would rattle as if someone was pulling on it when closed on occasion with no drafts in the room. On another occasion, one of the client's thought he heard a young child laughing right next to him.

Investigator Feelings / Experiences:
Mark -
Nothing to report

Lauren – While in the 2nd floor master bedroom with Mark, Lauren felt a stinging/burning sensation on her right bicep with red marks present. The red marks were photographed.

Bobby - Nothing to report
Paul -
Nothing to report

Michele – While in the 2nd floor master bedroom, Michele felt like she was pinched on the right bicep. This happened in the same area of the body and same room where Lauren had the same experience without each others knowledge that it happened to the other.
Michele's psychic impressions were of a young boy and girl in the home as well as a man and an older woman who Michele believed was the client's grandmother there watching over the baby. Michele was able to correctly identify the name of the client's grandmother through impressions. Michele believed it would be possible to cross over the two young children and said the man there had already departed knowing the family did not want him there.



Conclusion:

During the investigation that occurred on this date, investigators had very few personal experiences but two of our investigators, Michele and Lauren did feel like they were both pinched on the right bicep leaving red marks. No other physical evidence was documented.

The baby's room door rattling was looked into and no cause could be found for the rattling. With the clients reporting that they thought drafts were causing this activity, they covered the only bedroom window very air tight with plastic and it would take a substantial wind to move the door which is fairly snug once closed. No known cause for the movement could be found.

Although the possibility remains that there could have been some type of transmission interference picked up by the client's baby monitor allowing them to hear a woman singing, it is not probable based on the occurrence always being in the very early morning hours and a lullaby type of song being heard. The singing has only been heard when the baby cry's for an extended period of time. The same singing has also been audibly heard in that room.

Due to the client's concern, The PPA worked with the family from a metaphysical perspective by having psychic medium Michele Jones help the family to cross over the two small children she felt were present and the client was comfortable knowing her grandmother may be there to lend support to the family. Michele felt that the grandmother had already made her transition and just popped in on occasion for a visit.
