She has smelled wet cigarette smell recently. Client’s 5 1/2 old son has mentioned to her that there are shadow that follow him and at times he wont be alone in his room and requires that client accompany him.

GOGPI was called 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 video, we did record numerous EVP’s. Some of the investigators had some personal experiences, see below.

With the claims of activity, personal experiences by the investigators, the EVP’s that were recorded we feel like there is paranormal activity in the house. We cannot say the house is haunted without a follow up investigation to see if we can reproduce the claims of activity and personal experiences. We also feel that the son is not experiencing any past life experiences but perhaps is being channeled through by whatever spirit may be in the house. We need to follow up to see if this is indeed what is happening.

Personal Experience summaries from investigators on the investigation:


The only experiences I had was twice, while at base, I heard an unexplained bang noise and a noise that sounded like something fell in the living room.


I heard bangs too. Once while in the hall bathroom with Christie. They other was with Larry in the Master bedroom. I also believe Christie and I had some substantial flashlight communication in the boy’s room. I felt off balance in the guest bedroom.

Sensitive Read…
I did the read quickly in between base readings. I felt like there is an older female in the home I received this info in the guest bedroom of the home. She maybe family and if not she has painted that picture in my mind. It was there too I got the impression of a cigarette smoker, the female did not own this habit and the Energy felt like male to me.. . I feel like someone smoked in the home. The older woman is not claiming it, and the energy feels male around that. I feel like mom sees shadow people but this is not a new experience. I feel the man may be ex- military feels like Korean War/Vietnam to me. I also got the color orange in the master bedroom.

I heard a whisper in my right ear while at base with Ed and was able to catch this on the recorder.
I heard a clank sound from the living room (caught on recorder also).
Heard a bang sound from the living room while Gretchen and I were in the hall bath.
Gretchen and I were able to get direct responses with the flashlight in the boy’s room.
I felt off balance in the guest bedroom.


While in the living room with Gretchen I heard a noise, which was captured on audio,
also while at base with Ed I heard what sounded like something fell, the team in the boys room also heard the noise

What we hear:

  1. “I might”
  2. “Josh” or “Joshuah”
  3. Bang noise then “Ok”
  4. “Who’s in there” then “Harold” then “Empty nest”
  5. “Yeah I see” female voice
