GOGPI was called in to investigate the above claims of activity. Base reading in the house were within normal limits, temperature normal for conditions, EMF were within normal reading, except around the electrical equipment and electrical panels where they were higher, as expected.

We did not get anything in our pictures or on video. We did record several EVP’s. The investigators had some personal experiences, some of the experiences were the same as some of the claims of activity, see below.

With the claims of activity, personal experience by the investigator, the EVP’s that were recorded we feel like there is paranormal activity in the house. We feel that the activity is not harmful for the home or the resident. We cannot say the house is haunted without a follow up investigation to see if we can reproduce the claims of activity, personal experiences, and to gather more evidence of paranormal activity.

Personal Experience summaries from investigators on the investigation
Ed: The only thing I experienced was getting cold chills in the spare bedroom, but nowhere else in the house.
Chris: While investigating with Ed in the computer room I thought I seen a shadow move in the spare room. I experienced it getting cold In the spare room also.
Christie: I felt an immediate burn on my left cheek when I entered the house. I heard two whispers in the kitchen.
Melissa: When I first arrived at the house I started feeling a dull throbbing pain on the back left side of my head similar to how it feels when you bang your head. It continued for about 10 minutes until I walked outside to my car and it immediately stopped and I didn’t feel it again.
Beth: I didn’t have any personal experiences
Beth’s Sensitive Reading: As I was walking through the residence with the clients, I saw a male spirit in the middle bedroom/office. After describing him to the client and my feeling that it was her father, she confirmed it was him. I understood that he was only there to see who we were, what we all were doing in the home and to be with his daughter/the client. He left with her when they left us in the house to investigate. The only other thing I picked up on was the presence of a Wolf.



Below are some of the EVP’s we recorded from the investigation.  Since some of the EVP’s are faint we recommend turning up the sound and listening with headphones. What we hear in the EVP’s is listed below.

What we hear:

  1. “Could not be there” before investigator asks question.
  2. “Yeah” male voice then “Yes” female voice
  3. “Watch me” then “And not me”
  4. “Woof woof” or “Wolf wolf”
  5. “John” all investigators were in the kitchen and the recorder was in the master bedroom.
  6. “Over here let me ?” sing songy
  7. “10-4”
  8. “Oh really” then we can’t make out the second one near the end.
  9. “Or are they”
  10. A knock in response to investigator
  11. Growl
