clients reported the activity has been occurring for the past two
years, almost on a daily basis with the peek activity time being
between 11:00pm and 12:00am. The clients report things get
moved,they hear voices, having electronics and toys turning off and
on by themselves. The clients have captured voices on their own
recorders, have had orbs appear in photos and have seen an
apparitions of a man and a little girl. The clients have also heard
growling inside the house in the dining room area. By having an
investigation, the clients hope to have the activity stopped.

baseline readings were taken throughout the building, with expected
spikes near electrical appliances. Elevated readings were measured in
the basement area coming from the furnace. Levels were so high they
maxed out the EMF meters. High levels were also measured near
windows with window fans installed.
Feelings / Personal Experiences:
and Virginia- While
Mark and Virginia were in the basement, the family dog that was
secured outside during the investigation kept barking quite
frequently. Virginia made a comment that if any spirit was present,
could they go outside and make the dog stop barking. The dog did in
fact stop barking for an extended period of time.
Jim and Nicole were present in the basement, the family dog that was
secured outside during the investigation, once again kept barking.
Jim made a comment that if any spirit was present, could they go
outside and make the dog stop barking. The dog, once again, stopped
barking for an extended period of time. Only during investigation
analysis did both teams realize this mutual event had occurred.
Virginia first walked into the home, she immediately felt something
to do with coal mining, underground and to the right side of the
home. The homeowners confirmed this. As Virginia started the
walk-though of the home, she picked up a female entity who had hung
herself and was close to the father of the home while alive. This
female entity was with a male who also took his life. Virginia felt
they were both Earthbound. Virginia also felt that there was an
abundance of family members present who have passed on but were not
Earthbound. They come and go as they please. Virginia continued to
point out where she felt activity in the home was occurring and
provided names of loved ones that have passed on which the clients
confirmed. During the investigation, Virginia picked up on a coal
minor present in the home named Adolf but felt he was not
Earthbound. PPA Historical Research Directory, Kelly Kalb was able to
locate an Adolf with the client's last name through census records
who was in fact a coal minor and believed to be the clients Great
Grandfather confirming Virginia's information. As the night went
on, Virginia picked up on a lot of residual energy, again on the
right side of the home, like a mine shaft was still active but this
was not harmful to the family, just noisy and a startling at times.
this particular investigation on this date, investigators were not
able to document any activity that would be considered paranormal.
Investigators were able to identify several locations with very high
electromagnetic fields that would account for some uneasy and creepy
feelings the family was having in certain areas. These high fields
should be considered any time someone feels “creeped out” in
those areas. The PPA was also able to take a look at the clients
photos containing orbs and it is the opinion of The PPA that the orb
like objects in the photos are caused by common household dust and
not a result of anything paranormal. Although PPA members had an
unusual occurrence with the dog barking being stopped when asked,
there is no concrete way to know why that occurred or if it was
coincidence, although, admittedly a rare occurrence happening two
times in a row on demand. The PPA was not able to dismiss many other
reports the clients had and at this time, the investigation was not
able to prove or completely rule out a haunting.
Psychic Medium Virginia Centrillo picked up on almost all the
activity the clients were reporting and confirmed that the mom of the
household was sensitive as well as their daughter. Virginia believes
that the clients were picking up on deceased relatives who come and
go, residual energy and two Earthbound spirits that would have been
causing much of the physical activity. During the investigation,
Virginia heard several times, the sound of a man clearing his throat
and believes that was the growling noise the clients have reported
hearing on their own. Virginia does not believe anything harmful
would come from what the clients thought was a growl.
the end of the investigation, Virginia helped cross over the male and
female entity that had taken their lives. Virginia explained to the
mom of the house that she herself is very open to spirit and needs to
learn how to harness this gift because her daughter is also very open
and picks up on all that the mother sees. The mom did confirm this
was the case. Instructions were given by Virginia to this family on
how to keep the energies up in the home and where to find help for
their daughter if she is having any emotional difficulties with this
ability. Being that the family as a whole seems to be open to
different energies, it may be difficult to stop the activity all
together but understanding and learning about it may be the best way
to cope with the activity when it occurs.
