three bedroom ranch with two neighboring homes, each experiencing
similar activity that appear to be related. The main client's home
is occupied by three adults, three teenagers, two cats and a dog.
clients reported that the activity has been occurring for over eight
years since they moved in. The same type of activity seems to be
occurring at the homes to the left of this residence as well. The
activity is sporadic and is more prominent in September and October
and occurs mostly in the evening. Several people who were standing in
the common back yard observed a male apparition manifest and walk
right by them then disappear. The clients report strange noises in
the house when they are alone. They have also had the cupboards
close by themselves. The clients have heard footsteps outside and
then what sounded like something slamming into the front door with no
one there. They have heard talking right outside their bedroom
window with no one there. By having an investigation, the clients
were hoping to get peace in the neighborhood for all the homes that
seem to be affected.

baseline readings were taken throughout the building, with expected
spikes near electrical appliances. High levels were recorded in
scattered areas throughout the back yard. These levels were believed
to be originating from power lines running in the tree line at the
end of the back yard. Lower but measurable levels were also recorded
in the front and side yards.

Nothing to report
Virginia first arrived on the block, just standing in the street
between the homes, she began feeling weak and nauseous with pains in
her chest. As Virginia entered the first home, she picked up a male
name, which was the previous owners name, but that owner did not
pass. Then Virginia picked up the name of the previous owner's wife.
At that point, Virginia realized that the female had passed and was
calling out to her Husband who was no longer there. She also picked
up that the female died from some sort of impact. It later was
confirmed that the female died as the result of a car crash. Virginia
continued to walk to the bedrooms, where she felt two male entities.
One was a black slave who was hiding around the home. Virginia felt
him to be from an underground railroad and the other looked mad
because no one was hearing him. This was the man who Virginia felt
was touching the owners. This experience was confirmed by the owners.
The black slave was also confirmed by the owner’s daughter, who she
herself has seen on a few occasions.
Virginia continued the walk through of house 1, she felt she had to
go to the backyard of the home where she felt most of the energy.
When Virginia was in the backyard, she felt a lot of activity around
the railroad. Virginia felt as though someone was murdered and a lot
of fighting was going on around the 1800’s, which was confirmed
later by the owners. Virginia also felt that this activity ran
through all the backyards of all the homes that had the railroad
behind it. A lot of this activity is residual.
#2: When Virginia did her walk through, she felt there is some
activity but it was sporadic and she felt that the little boy of the
home would see a man in his room and also, on one occasion, the boy
did see a woman. This was confirmed by the owners.
#3: When Virginia began walking to the home with the owner, she
began picking up that the owner herself was very open, which the
owner did confirm. Upon walking into the home, Virginia felt an
abundance of loved ones who have passed. She described some of the
loved ones to the owner and the owner did confirm what Virginia was
picking up. As they continued the walk through of the home, Virginia
went into the front bedroom and, in the corner of the room where the
window faces the front, she came across the same man who was in the
first home. This man seemed to be upset and Virginia kept picking up
a tragic ending in front of the home by this bedroom window, which
again was confirmed by all 3 owners of these homes.
Virginia returned to House 1, she picked up the name William ,who
died of a sudden heart attack on the street. Virginia realized this
was the man who was angry because no one could hear him nor help him.
This is the William that died in front of the bedroom of the third
home and the reason why he was going from home to home is because he
knew the previous owners of the homes and was looking for them to get
help. Virginia feels he is one of the main reasons for the haunting
of all three homes along with the history that is present.
on the investigation of three homes in this neighborhood, The PPA was
not able to document any physical evidence verifying a haunting at
these locations nor were we able to rule out a haunting or find
alternative explanations for the activity. The PPA did identify high
electro-magnetic fields in the back yard of two of the homes believed
to be caused by the power lines running along the tree line near the
railroad tracks. Elevated EM fields were also measured in the front
and side yards believed to be caused by a second set of power lines
running along the street. These high fields could potentially cause
two things to happen. Anyone who is sensitive to these fields could
get a really creepy feeling in these areas or feel like they were
being watched. There are also some theories that high magnetic
fields can help magnify paranormal activity if it is present at a
location or a combination of both.
a metaphysical perspective, Psychic Medium Virginia Centrillo
provided information on what she felt was taking place at these homes
and where, with most of the information being confirmed by the
families involved. This helped confirm for the clients that the
families may be experiencing activity at these locations. With
the help of The PPA and the owners of the homes, Virginia conducted a
clearing. Due to the history of the land, Virginia also gave
instructions to the owners on how me to keep up the energies in their
homes and also the properties.
Virginia feels that the residual activity will remain present and
the clients may pick up on that activity from time to time but have
nothing to fear. Virginia does not believe that anything harmful is
at these homes. The PPA will monitor the neighborhood for any
further activity. After two weeks of the investigation date, the client is reporting no more activity.
