Conclusion:

During the investigation that occurred on this date, no personal experiences where noted by investigators and no physical evidence of paranormal activity was documented during our time investigating. Investigators were not able to dismiss any accounts of activity reported by the clients and the investigation remains inconclusive at this time.  No physical evidence for or against a haunting was able to be documented. 

The PPA recommends that a log of activity be started to keep track of any further activity and to establish any patterns that may be present. The PPA will continue to work with the clients to try and identify anything that may be paranormal and will consult with a psychic medium on this location to get a metaphysical perspective of what may be occurring.
