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. An elevated emf field that remained constant over 2.5mg was measured in the majority of the home with the exception of the kitchen. This field is believed to be created by old electrical wiring in the home and outside high tension wires and could be one cause of seeing shadows or having the feeling that you are not alone or are being watched and should be taken into consideration for future experiences. People who are sensitive to these fields may experience paranormal-like feelings. No anomalous readings were recorded during the investigation.

Paul - Nothing to report


Virginia (Psychic Medium) –
received psychic impressions of a male spirit who was once in the US Army. Virginia felt this man used to own this house and he wanted the family out of his home. This was the man responsible for causing most of the activity. Virginia picked up a second soldier that was in the home along with the first. Virginia also believed that due to the location of the home and the historical and tragic events surrounding the location from previous wars has caused much of the activity that is happening not only in this home but others on the same street. Virginia picked up a Native American spirit in the home that was also causing some of the activity and a spirit of an older woman who died and did not cross over to where she needed to be. Virginia added that some of these spirits were on different levels of existence and the family may not even have known they were there. Virginia also believes that the mother of the home is open to spiritual energy and may be able to sense more than the normal person, therefore appearing to be the focus of the activity.


Conclusion:

The investigation that occurred on this date did not produce any physical evidence to conclude a haunting was taking place but due to the historical location of the home combined with the constant high levels of emf, which is believed to act as a conduit or energy source for physical manifestations where paranormal activity is present, it is believed that this location is prime for activity to occur.

Taking into account the psychic impressions gathered by Virginia and the concern of the family to stop the activity, The PPA worked with Virginia to do a “crossing of spirits” from a metaphysical standpoint and a cleansing of the home. The family has since reported a reduction in activity. The PPA will continue to monitor the location for any future activity.
