The PPA Investigation at Parker House Tavern
Location: East Earl, PA - Lancaster County



Investigation Date and Duration:
June 24, 2010 6:30pm –12:30am


Location Status:
Private 3 bedroom bi-level residence occupied by three adults and one dog.

Reported Activity:
The clients have lived in this residence for 16 years but the activity started happening on and off for the past 5 years. The activity is sporadic and occurs during the day and night. When the activity first started, heavy furniture was toppled over, the stove was turned on by itself, hanging lights would swing, food would be removed from the cabinets and refrigerator and thrown all over the kitchen and things going missing. Other reports of activity include objects being displaced, the sound of footsteps, hearing light bulbs being loosened then blowing out, seeing black shadow like figures and having a feeling that you are being watched. An adult daughter seems to be targeted by things happening such as her feet and ankles being grabbed as she sits on the couch or by pushing down on her while she is in bed. The clients goal by having an investigation is to try and remove the activity from the home and to attempt to find out if it is connected to the home or property or one of them.

LaurenNothing to report

Paul - Nothing to report

Jim - Nothing to report

Virginia (Psychic Medium)Also had the hair on her arms stand on end near the end bedroom doorways.



Metaphysical Impressions:
Virginia psychically picked up on a lower level vibrational energy that seemed to be able to show itself as a male or female figure to the daughter and has been with her for a long time. This entity was believed to have been sent to the daughter when she was younger by another person using some type of ritual. The family was able to confirm this belief. Virginia felt that this was the cause of the physical interaction that was being done to the daughter. Virginia also picked up on a female energy, believed to be in her 30's and who was possibly a mid-wife. The name Virginia received with this energy was Agnus and she was thought to have died around 1792-93. Virginia felt this energy was associated with much of the physical activity occurring in the house because of confusion and jealousy. Virginia believes this female may have had some sort of break down or had gone mad while alive. Virginia also picked up on the fact the the client's daughter was very psychically open. This enabled her to interact with any spirits present much more than anyone else and to pick up on the spirits energy and emotions which may have caused her to have strong, rapidly changing, emotional feelings and not know why.


Conclusion:
During the course of the investigation on this particular date, investigators were not able to document any physical evidence to scientifically indicate that a haunting was taking place. Investigators were not able to dismiss any of the client's claims nor find any alternative explanations to indicate that the activity was caused by normal means.

During an initial walk through by psychic medium Virginia Centrillo, Virginia was able to indicate what type of activity was happening where and this was confirmed by the clients and corroborated their initial reports. Virginia reported picking up on living spirits at this location.

At the request of the clients, a cleansing was done by The PPA under Virginia's direction. Virginia believes that we were able to successfully cross over the female spirit and remove the majority of the lower level entity from the residence however, Virginia believes that this lower energy was able to “split” itself and a very small portion remained attached to the daughter but will not be as strong as before. Being that the daughter is so openly sensitive to psychic energy, Virginia feels that the daughter needs to work through some of the emotional ties connected to some past issues to help disconnect from this energy along with working on some psychic self-defense measures to protect herself. Virginia will continue to work with the clients to reach that goal. The PPA will continue to monitor the residence for any further activity.
