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 not capture anything on video or in our pictures but we did capture numerous EVP’s. Some of the EVP’s seem to be responding to our questions while others seem to make comments to the conversations we were having, others seemed random. Some of the EVP’s were recorded, voices and noises, while we were gone and no one was in the house. All investigators had some type of unexplained experiences, see below. Some experiences matched some of the claims by the client.
We feel the house has paranormal activity and is haunted based on the clients claims, EVP’s, and personal experiences by the team. We recommend another investigation to verify if this is the case and to see if we can reproduce our findings and get more evidence of who may be there.
Ghosts of Georgia Paranormal Investigations
Personal Experience summaries from investigators on the investigation:
I only had one experience, while I was in the kitchen by myself getting my equipment ready I heard what sounded like a growl. My first thought was the refrigerator but it was new and running without a sound. All the animals were in another part of the house. Never heard the sound the rest of the night and was unable to find a cause.
While talking to the clients in the front hall, I saw something black go in front of the window on the back porch. I saw movement in the bedroom as well at that time. The house has lots of lightplay/ shadow play…not sure it was paranormal or regular light movement (cars outside etc…). During the investigation with Beth. In the the clients bedroom…I saw a fleeting shadow go up the side of the bookcase by the door. My battery drained twice. Once in my recorder and once in my camera. I got short of breath 20 minutes before arriving. I had no problems in the car prior to this, and I just had a clean bill of health at the drs.
No personal experiences other than some psychic connections related to the owners and their experiences. Talked with the homeowner about some spiritual practices he was doing, asked him to stop and see if the activity would stop in the home.
