clients have lived in this home for two years and reported that the
activity has been going on for about four months prior to requesting
an investigation. The activity is reported to be occurring on a
weekly basis and at night. The clients related that they have been
experiencing their bed shaking and seeing a dark shadow figure
standing on the side of their bed. The mom is feeling like she is
being poked while sleeping and the bed will begin to shake. The
son has also been awakened by his bed shaking as well. The family is
scared and hope to get some understanding of what is going on and to
get a peaceful nights sleep.

Feelings / Personal Experiences:
Bobby and Virginia were in the children's bedroom, Bobby was overcome
with grief and felt like he needed to cry. Bobby later had asked
whatever was there to slap him to let him know someone was there and
then above his left eye, it started to hurt and Bobby described a
stinging sensation. Virginia noted that Bobby's head was pink in
that area. Virginia also reported a headache at the same time.
A little later, Bobby
Virginia were still in the children's room on the second floor and Virginia
asked the client to come up. Virginia was getting psychic
impressions that a male presence would make something physically
happen for them as Bobby was requesting him to do but was telling
Virginia that he would only do it if the client came into the room.
After the client came into the room, Virginia made a comment that the
client was now there and they now wanted to see something physical
happen. Bobby's camcorder then unexpectedly shut off by itself. The
camcorder had been recording for almost 50 minutes prior to that and all
video was erased. No explanation for this experience could be found.
Plenty of power was left in the battery.
another point in the investigation, Jim and Virginia were in the
children's playroom. As Jim stood there, he started getting cold.
Not saying anything to Virginia about it, Virginia said she felt the
presence of a lady named Betty come into the room. After Virginia
said that, Jim was freezing cold and had goosebumps. This was the
first time during an investigation Jim felt like that. Jim's
thermometer measured 70.4F in the room at that time but the
temperature increased to 73.0F. While Jim was getting colder, it was
actually getting warmer in the room.
the course of the investigation on this particular date, no physical
evidence was documented to definitively determine a haunting was
taking place. Investigators were not able to rule out any of the
clients claims and find the clients to be quite credible. At
different points in the investigation, investigators did have
personal experiences that seemed to correlate with the information
that Virginia, The PPA'S Psychic Medium, was receiving. Virginia was
able to have the clients validate the information she was receiving
at this residence. Virginia believes that most of the activity is
specifically related to the family and not necessarily to the home
and revolves around personal unresolved family issues. Virginia
worked with the family to try and resolve some of the issues which in
turn would hopefully reduce some of the activity. The PPA will
continue to monitor the home for any future activity.
