Condition of the Home:

Home is older but in great condition. The home is in full working order and currently lived in.  The home was once used as a Home Economics school room, but is now owned by the church and rented out to residence. The school, church and graveyard are all on the same block of the home.


Equipment used by Investigators:


Cameras: Two Canon Rebel digital cameras and Four IR Video Cameras connected to a J2000 DVR.

EMF Meters: Electro Sensor EMF Meter, Cell Sensor, Digital EMF Detectors, Mel-8704R-KII and K-II Meter.

Audio Recorders: Sony P210 digital voice recorder and an Olympus D-10 digital voice recorder and Olympus VN-4100PC. 

Thermometers: Cen-Tech mini non-contact infrared digital thermometer and an Omega HH68K ambient thermometer.


April, Investigation – 7:35 pm – Base Readings:

Sunroom – Temp 70.8-69.8 – 0 EMF readings

Sunroom Hallway – Temp 70.2 – 3.3 and K2 spike by the plugs in wall

Boy’s room – Temp 70.1 – .1-.3 (mostly 0) EMF readings

Sunroom Hall Bathroom – Temp 70.5 – .1 – K2 spike by sink and wall

Girl’s room – Temp 68.1– 70 – K2 spike by plug – 0 EMF readings “in corner Beth and Kat heard “mom”

Living Room – Temp 70.8–71 – K2 by the TV and .1 rest of the room

Master Bedroom – Temp 71.5–72.8 – O EMF and a couple of random K2 spikes

Back Entry – Temp 70.8–71.4 – 0 EMF readings

Kitchen – Temp 74.8 – .4 EMF readings and refrigerator very high – too high to read on the meter.


Before starting the investigation we noticed the KII has been going off at base. It was flashing all the way to the 5th light almost constant, then would stop all the sudden at 0, but would start up again randomly.  We tested several areas of the base area and there does not seem to be a cause or consistent reading with the KII.

  2. Investigated Living room and Kitchen – Both team members hearing something like a repeated whistle, constant patterns – described as Alien like sounds, very loud and strange. Team members thought it could be the refrigerator, but when they listened carefully it did not sound like it was.  After asking the residents later, the residents of the home said it was the refrigerator.  They have heard it before.
  3. Living room – EVP session – KII spikes – seemed to have communicated through questions 1 answer, otherwise random. Kat got a cold air feeling while asking questions.

May, Team – Larry, Pat and Beth

After doing the reveal from the April investigation with the clients, a small follow-up investigation was done. The team went back to the cemetery first – per the request of the clients. We got several random KII hits on both meters being used at the same time , but everything seemed to be passing by us in the cemetery. The team went back in the home to investigate next and got more random KII hits, but could not make any intelligent communication/responses with the KII. The spikes were random and did not seem to follow a pattern. In Beth’s personal (not professional) opinion; it is almost like the home and graveyard is one big super highway for spirits to walk in and out.

April and May Investigation Findings:

 Findings will be compiled after a follow up visit in May, 2011.

April – Personal Experience summaries from investigators on the investigation:

While out in front of the house examining the bare spot I heard what sounded like the storm door closing but upon examination the door was already closed and didn’t make the sound. A little later I heard a metallic noise like something hitting the gutter but nothing was near the gutters to cause the noise.


I had no personal experiences in the house, but was with Ed outside and also heard what sounded like the storm door closing and the metallic sound also.


My personal experiences consisted of: during investigation on first sweep, Larry and I had good interaction with the K-II meter in the girl’s room.  During my initial walk through, while in the boys’s room, I heard a disembodied voice of a child tell me hello.  While on investigation with Ed, we had some interaction with the K-II in the girl’s room, and while in the sunroom, the flashlight came on twice, it did go off upon being told to turn the flashlight off.


I heard a child’s voice when Beth and I were investigating the girl’s room. We both heard a child’s voice saying something that could be “Mom?” 🙂


As I first walked into the home, I did not feel anything in the Master Bedroom, but I noticed residual energy in the living room. I felt lots of people, youth in and out of the room. The girl’s bedroom on right of the living room, I heard a child call out “mom” in my right ear as I was looking out the window.  It was on the wall between the office and the bedroom.  Back in the sunroom I noticed lots of energy at the back door.  It seems to be used as an energy path going from the back steps to the living room.  I can feel the energy path.  Took a walk in the cemetery and was telepathically called to the right back side of the cemetery.  I felt child spirits and adult males.  In particular I also felt one “children” grave in the right back that called to me.  The name “Ed” came to me in the back sunroom as well.  Felt some gathering energy toward the house before the graveyard on the right as well.  I love the energy in this home!
