Findings:

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 video but 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 house. 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:

Gretchen:

Basement: Walked down the stairs and turned to the left and saw a man in the basement. Just for a brief second and he was gone.

Kitchen: Heard noises coming from the kitchen, single bangs different that the ice maker, while investigating, sounded like it was the drawers in the kitchen closing. Also heard my name called by a female in the kitchen, no one else heard it and Christie did not say my name.

At base: touched on my right shoulder blade. Felt like fingers, no air was on. I had to stand up. Heard with Chris voices and footsteps, not Ed and Christie who were in the basement at the time.

Bedroom 2: smelled cologne, men’s cologne, did not smell like sachet or deodorant on the dresser.

Family Den: I was pinched (electric feel to it) on my right elbow. Their was nothing at the level of elbow that I might have hit my elbow on, between stairs and couch.

Sensitive Reading-

Home felt electric upon walking in the door and got stronger as I entered the living room.
I was drawn to the stairs and especially the landing. Feels like something stands at the top of the stairs and possible moves down to the lower landing. I believe footsteps are heard downstairs. The energy downstairs feels strong familiar female (family).

The Basement- upon going down the stairs I turned and looked left and there was movement. Male energy and takes ownership of the area. I feel like warrior- solider and I hear he wears grey. I wanted to place Civil war to this but its cloudy and maybe me placing the history of the land onto this energy. I do not feel this energy is very courageous…seems to stand back. Did feel like Christie was on my left side and I turned and she was still on the right side of me. Then that feeling was immediately gone. This entity is attracted to the energy fields of the female in the house with the ability to see/connect with him. Not family.

Kitchen- Female family energy I felt before. I immediately got Blueberry cake … specifically Blueberry. Mom is sensitive and daughters are too. She is supportive of the women in her family. She says things go on that she is not responsible for.

Bedroom 2-In the daughters room, there is the impression of an older woman. She wants the afghan to come down off the window and go where it belongs (furniture). She keeps saying she needs a curtain. Take that down take it down… There is an energy change in feeling about 2 feet into the room…it is cylindrical in shape. She is also protective.

Bedroom 1- I sense a son energy. Wasn’t sure who the son was until the family spoke with us later in the evening.

“This little light of mine” is the song in my head throughout the whole walkthrough. I love the house and the family there.

Christie:

I heard footsteps or walking above us while Ed and I were in the basement.

Chris:

While at base with Gretchen I heard a female voice say thank you coming from the living room area. I thought that I heard music playing from somewhere in the dining room. When me and Gretchen was up in the bedroom 2 I smelt a strong cologne smell that I did not smell before during setup or while getting base readings. Gretchen and I heard what sounded like foot steps while Christie and Ed were in the basement investigating.

Ed:

While in the master bedroom I saw a light in the bathroom near the window, I turned away and turned right back to see if was still there and it was gone. Not sure if it was a light from behind the house, there are trees ten an open field behind the house, or maybe from the street in front but no cars went by at that time.
While in the basement, under the master bedroom, I heard some thump noises come from above us. While listening to the audio the sounds sounded more like footsteps. No one was in the room and the people at base were not moving.


What we hear:

  1. “Wow” or a growl
  2. “Ummmm” and footsteps
  3. Footsteps
  4. “Ed” x2
  5. “Obama”
  6. “Thank you”
  7. Footsteps
  8. “Bama”
  9. “Uhuhhhhhhh”
