EMF (Electro Magnetic Field):
Standard baseline readings were taken throughout the residence with expected spikes near electrical appliances. No anomalous readings were detected.

Investigator Feelings / Personal Experiences:
No notable experiences reported.

Metaphysical Impressions:
Psychic Medium Virginia Centrillo picked up on a
spirit of a man, “J” sounding name, who formerly lived in the home and was still present here along with his wife, 'Rose'. Virginia felt there were many owners attached to this home throughout history. Virginia believes the owners dog saw the man and was afraid of his presence. Virginia picked up on a very bad fire that killed a lot of people in the home or surrounding land. Virginia felt the fire was a very long time ago but the souls were still there from that tragedy. A lot of American Indians were once present in the home or surrounding land and Virginia felt there was an Indian burial ground towards the back of the home or property. Virginia also believes that the home owner has a gift and feels the spirits went to her for help.


During our investigation on this particular date, we looked into alternative reasons for the activity that the clients were reporting. No known or alternative explanation could be found for most of the activity. No audio or video evidence was documented on this date and no personal experiences were noted. With the lack of physical evidence and investigators not being able to rule out many experiences as being caused by normal events, the cause of the activity remains undetermined. There is no physical evidence to support or dismiss a haunting at this time.

Although not able to document any physical activity to support a haunting, The PPA, at the clients request, turned to the guidance of Virginia to conduct a cleansing of the home and to help “cross over” the energies that she felt were still at this location. Virginia believes this was successful and the clients reported feeling more at ease following the cleansing process. A noticeable difference was seen in the dogs disposition as well. Virginia feels she was even able to clear the remaining energy from the Native Americans and fire victims that still lingered at this property. The PPA was able to verify that a George, possibly the “J” sounding name and his wife Rose did in fact once live at this residence, a tragic fire nearby killed many people in 1875 and an American Indian burial site is behind the home.
