GOGPI was called in to investigate the above claims of activity. Base reading in the business 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 digital pictures or video but we did get an anomaly on the thermal camera and captured the anomaly. While Gretchen was laying on the studio floor she felt something touch her arm. Chris aimed the thermal camera in her direction and saw a cold spot laying next to her at about a forty five degree angle and the length and shape of a person, no one was or had been next to her. We did record numerous EVP’s. 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 business. We cannot say the business 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:
While setting up I heard an exhale like “Hey” and a male voice down by the bathroom end of the room. During the session in the studio I felt someone up against my arm and on thermal there was a spot there. Flashlight communication seemed purposeful in the studio and in the waiting room.
Sensitive Experience:. I feel like there was a male in the studio upon entering the studio. I felt like there was a female speaking with us in the waiting room and the studio on the First team outing. Then with the combined teams I felt the energy was more male but different than the male I felt upon entering.
My experience consisted of hearing a noise in the studio that we could not determine the cause. I also witnessed a flashlight communication with the flashlight being knock over.
I felt something touch my hand a few times while I was standing in the waiting area. I repositioned my hands and felt something touch my arm. I also experienced flash light communication and the flash light being knocked over.
While investigating in the studio I witnessed flashlight communication, I witnessed the flash light fall over, also I saw a spot on the thermal camera next to Gretchen.
