Investigator Feelings / Personal Experiences:
Mark -
When Mark initially walked into the home to meet the client's , he was standing in the door way between the dining room and kitchen and his left, lower leg became very hot.  Thinking he had just stepped to close to a heat source, he pulled away.  Upon checking the room, no heat souece could be found.  The clients related that they often feel hot spots in the house. Later, while doing the initial walk-through of the home, Mark had a sensation like someone kept running their fingers through his hair.  This happened in the basement and then in the living room.  One of the clients stated that this has happened to him several times while living there.


During the investigation on this particular date, investigators were not able to document any physical activity that the clients were reporting.   Investigators were not able to rule out any of the experiences as being caused by normal sources.

Psychic medium Virginia Centrillo and guest Medium Jeff Burbe both picked up on the client's father being present but not trapped. The father was there in a very protective way.   Both picked up a male entity in the home.  Virginia additionally picked up on a shadow person  and an adult female spirit in the home.   Virginia was easily able to release the male and female souls in the home and did not believe that they were harmful nor causing much activity in the home.   Virginia felt that the majority of the activity was being caused by the shadow person in the house and this is who the son was seeing on a regular basis dressed in a black suit.  Virginia felt this was connected to another family member outside the home and became attached to the son during a visit with that family member.  Virginia did some energy work to lesson the attachment and protect the child and recommended we return at a later date to deal with the shadow person with some additional resources.  

The PPA returned to the residence, along with associate members from Light Seekers Paranormal Resolutions, to takle the entity as a well-rounded spiritual group.  Energy work, healing work on the son and light work in and outside the home was conducted by the team and the entity was sent back to its source.  The PPA will be monitoring the home for the next several weeks to see how things progress.  The clients have thus far reported that all is quiet in the home after a few days and their sone is now sleeping well at night.
