Findings:

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 capture a camera movement on video while the house was vacant, but did not get anything in our pictures, 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, and the camera moving on the video 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.

Personal Experience summaries from investigators on the investigation:

Gretchen:

I heard a female voice in the living room before the client’s left.  Then I heard a male conversation between living room and kitchen, only two sentences.  Thought I saw movement in the guest bedroom when I was setting up the camera to record the guest bedroom door.  Thought I heard whispering once when I was on the bed, but unsure, very soft.

Larry:

I had that same experience while with Ed, also I heard what sounded like a camera shutter going off while we were in the living room talking after set up, neither Ed nor Gretchen heard it. The sound came from the direction which Ed was sitting

Ed:

I remember experiencing what sounded like a drawer handle dropping and bouncing a few times, sounded like a light weight metal, I also heard what sounded like a “Shhhh” sound while sitting in the living room on my sweep with Larry, it was picked up on the audio recorder.


What we hear:

  1. “Yeah”
  2. Noise like a handle dropping on a piece of furniture.
  3. “Hey”
  4. A laugh
  5. Noise then “Sorry for making noise”
  6. Odd noise like something was dropped.
