Investigator Feelings / Personal Experiences:
Nothing to report

Nicole: While sitting alone in the master bedroom on the second floor, Nicole observed a wispy shadow disturbance pass from her left to right as she was watching a laser grid that was being projected against a wall. The shadow would have come from the direction of the hallway where Paulette was sitting just outside the door. Nicole reported that the laser grid did not block out but the disturbance was visible in the laser in front of her. The stationary IR camera monitoring this room did not pick up any disturbance or shadow.

Paulette: While sitting just outside the master bedroom where Nicole was positioned, Paulette observed a shadow move past her from her right to left in a second laser grid and went in the direction of the master bedroom doorway. Not realizing that each other had just seen the same object, both investigators started to try and find a cause for the disturbance and then reported it to each other. The stationary IR camera did not pick up any disturbance or shadow in the hallway where Paulette reported seeing the shadow nor did the object block out any portion of the laser grid.

Mike: Nothing to report.

Virginia: Refer to Psychic Impressions

Psychic Impressions:
When Virginia walked through the front door of the client’s home, she was immediately greeted by the Spirits of the owner’s family. They were giving names to Virginia that only the owner would know. Virginia felt the spirits of the client's family were there to protect the client, because she is very open and is able to see spirits. As Virginia began her walk-through, she started to sense a male entity whom was very negative in nature. Virginia started to feel that this male entity had a D name and was involved in drugs, alcohol and was mentally unstable. She felt he was involved in a forced sexual encounter with a minor. Virginia also heard gunshots when she was trying to communicate with the D name. The client told Virginia that the D name used to shoot small animals from his porch. This was all confirmed by the client. There were many other entities there, but Virginia felt they were not at all harmful. Virginia felt as though the male entity was the cause of most of the activity in this home. She also felt that the client was being touched inappropriately, which was confirmed by the client. Virginia herself was touched in the bathroom by this male entity on the left breast. When this happened, Virginia called out to the client and asked her where this male entity had touched her and the owner told Virginia she also was touched in the bathroom in the breast area.

During the investigation on this particular date, two investigators had independent experiences that were similar to what the client had been reporting. Both Paulette and Nicole independently observed a shadow-like mass pass through the laser from the second floor hallway to the bedroom. The PPA also had two fully charged walki-talkis go dead within about an hour of their activation. The batteries in these devices should have lasted the entire investigation. Investigators looked into possible alternative explanations for the activity with no reasonable explanations found. The PPA was able to confirm some of the activity that the client was reporting.

Metaphysically, Psychic Medium Virginia Centrillo also confirmed that she was picking up exactly what the client was reporting. Virginia felt a very negative male presence was the cause for most of the physical activity and also that there was a little girl in the home but not stuck there. Virginia picked up on additional energies that move through because of he property and because of how the building is constructed as a row home. Virginia believes that because the client is open herself, as long as she stays at this location, she will continue to see energies from time to time.

Virginia and Mark, along with the owner, began a release of the trapped souls that Virginia felt were there. This included a couple of small animals and a horse. Once the release was completed, they turned their attention to the D name male entity. After a great deal of convincing, the entity finally left. With continued prayer, because of the entity’s mental state, we are hopeful that he will not return.

Virginia gave information to the owner on how she can further develop her own gift and how to protect herself and the home.
