While Virginia and  Kelly were working in the 1st floor visitors room, called "The Moon Room", Virginia flet the hair on the back of her hair stand up. Virginia commented that someone was using her energy and then if anyone wanted to use her energy, that was fine. Right after Virginia says, "That's fine", you can hear what Virginia felt was a male voice respond with what sounds like, "Can do" nine seconds into the clip.  The voice was not picked up on recorders outside of this room. 


No photos of evidential value were discovered.

Investigator Feelings / Personal Experiences:
- Nothing to report


During the investigation on this particular date, investigators were able to document one EVP in the first floor, "Moon Room". This is an area that has had many paranormal events reported over the years.  No other physical evidence was documented on this date. 

Psychic Medium Virginia Centrillo identified what she felt were the spirits of  many people that had lived and work at this property. Virginia felt that some were stuck but others were just popping in from time to time because of their former associaions with the property. Virginia believed that  there was a lot of residual energy also present in the building. Virginia, with the assistance of PPA investigators, were able to release the spirits that were stuck at this property but Virginia felt that the spirits that were not stuck would continue to come to this property and activity here would likely continue as long as it is in existance because of it's historical nature and the residual actvity that is present.
