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, video, or audio. The investigators had some personal experiences, see below.

We were unable to record any activity in and outside the house and the personal experiences by the investigator was inconclusive. The objects captured on the clients camera at the front porch may be capturing flying bugs or perhaps bats or other nocturnal birds. 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


During the first sweep I witnessed the REM pod going off during radio communication on the front porch but afterwards it continued. I had to cut the REM pod off to make it stop. In bedroom #1, I heard a disembodied groan from the hall area and heard loud banging sounds coming from the living room area. Chris also heard the banging sound from the living room. In the master bedroom and living room I witnessed flashlight communication. While at base I heard what sounded like the REM pod going off on the front porch and a loud bang from the living room. Chris and Ed confirmed they heard it too.


After setup while we were all in the kitchen, I heard what sounded like footsteps in the living room area. While Chris and I were in the master bedroom I heard a male voice coming from the hallway and also heard a loud noise that sounded like it came from the hallway or living room area, Chris heard them too.
