We were called in to investigate the above mentioned activity. We took base Temperature and EMF readings and all were within normal range except for a few unexplained spikes in EMF. We were unable to duplicate those readings and were unable to determine what had caused them. During the investigation the reading stayed within the base readings except for an unexplained spike in EMF on the back porch. We were unable to determine the cause.

We did not capture anything in the video or in our pictures. We did however catch numerous EVP’s. The investigators had a few personal experiences which coincided with a couple claims of activity in the home.

With only the EVP’s captured and a couple personal experiences we cannot say that the home is haunted but with the clients stories of activity and the fact we did capture some EVP’s we can say that there appears to be some paranormal activity in the home. We feel that the activity is not harmful and recommend a follow up investigation to see if we can capture any more proof of paranormal activity.

Personal Experience summaries from investigators on the investigation:


The only experience I had was hearing a couple footsteps in the master bedroom.


My only personal experience is when me and Ed was outside I got an emf spike on my Mel meter. Spiked to 2.2


No personal experiences for me.  Did share some intuitive advice with client’s daughter though.


Not too many personal experiences but here they are

They came on the first sweep. We got nnothing on the two investigative passes. This was Beth and I working together when we did the initial EMF readings

In the master bathroom I got an overall EMF reading of .1 – .2 which of course is typical of anywhere there are electrical outlets. I got a sudden hit up to 2.4 on the EMF meter right beside the bathtub. I wasn’t moving and it went from .1 to 2.4 for just about 3 seconds and then it was gone. I scanned around but couldn’t match the hit anywhere else. Then I went in the closet off the bathroom. I got a creepy, something is behind me, hair standing on end feeling. When I went back into the bathroom, I asked Beth to give me a read on the closet. She got nothing. I walked back into the closet and did not get the feeling again. When I went back into the bathroom, I got a 3.6 hit on the EMF in the same place that I got the 2.4 earlier. In about 2 seconds it was gone. I got nothing else the rest of the night.
