Ghosts of Georgia Investigation report

On July 16th, 2011 GOGPI investigated claims of paranormal activity at a private residence in Nahunta GA. The activity reported at the private residence in Nahunta is as follows: Footsteps up and down the stairs to the attic, water heater in the attic keeps re-adjusting itself, the door at the top of the stairs swings open and deadbolt opened – the owner removed the lock. The son was scratched, and he saw a face in the window from the outside. The daughter hears sounds in the attic, so she has to sleep with a sound machine. The cabinets open and close by themselves in the kitchen. The corner of master bedroom scared the home owner (feeling of being watched) and 3 bangs/knocks on the window – occasionally the owner hears music in the master. In the driveway, the sound of basketball bouncing and a strong beautiful aroma can be smelled at times. In the beauty room – a friend has witnessed a figure. In the boy’s room, the son heard sounds in the closet.

Investigators & people present at investigation: Investigators – Ed Laughlin, Beth Peters, Larry Conley, Christine Riley and Laurie Filsinger.

Findings:

We were called to investigate the above claims of activity. We took base readings, EMF and temperature, throughout the home and all were with in normal ranges. During the investigation they remained within normal limits.

During the investigation each investigator had some personal experiences but we were unable to back any of them up with our instruments. We also tried varies methods to communicate including the use of KII, flash light communications, knocks, etc. We were unsuccessful with instrument communication other than our audio recorders which recorded numerous EVP’s. We also heard some knocks but seemed to be random. We did not record anything unusual with our video equipment nor did we get anything with our still photography.
Based on our findings of the investigation we feel that the home is not haunted but with the numerous EVP’s, personal experiences, and the claims of activity experienced by the client we feel that there is paranormal activity in the home. We recommend a follow up investigation to see if could repeat the experiences and to gather more evidence.

Personal Experience summaries from investigators on the investigation:

Larry:

My only personal experience was outside at the end of the investigation, felt a cob web land on my face, but could not pull it off, then just went away

Ed:

My experiences were in the old office/beauty room where I felt something touch the top of my head but nothing was close enough to do that and the ceiling fan was off at the time it happened. In the master bedroom/bathroom on the second sweep I felt a little nauseated when we were in there along with feeling jittery and cold inside. I could move out of the area and feel better, then when I reentered the area the same feeling would return, then suddenly I felt better as I was sitting in the room. I told Beth and Larry I was feeling better then Beth told me that the female spirit she was picking up had just left the room.

Laurie:
My personal experiences occurred up in the attic and in son’s bedroom. While in the attic/bonus room, I felt like we were being watched and then felt very strongly that something had moved up next to me very close to my left side while we were conducting an EVP session. Later on when our team was conducting an EVP session in son’s room, I was sitting on the bed and felt like my left foot started to vibrate for about 4 to 5 seconds. It was not a sensation I have ever experienced before. I noticed after we left that my left shoe was untied as well. Something touched my hair upstairs in the attic. Originally I thought I had walked too close to the ceiling but when I looked up..I could see I was nowhere near it. It felt like something lifted a tiny section of my hair up near the front of my head…then let it drop.
Beth Peters:

I had a psychic personal experience – not related to paranormal – While investigating Client’s bedroom, I was contacted by Client’s friend that passed away. Ed and Larry were with me and Ed felt her there as well. Client and I discussed it after I came outside and she was able to confirm all the signs and symbols given to me by her friend and then a message for her too. The only other personal experience I had was feeling a presence in Client’s bedroom in the corner by her iron board on Friday night.

Christine:
While doing the very first walk through of the house on Friday night, I heard a male disembodied voice twice about 3 minutes from each other. Larry helped me try to debunk it, but we couldn’t. I again heard the same sounding male voice in son’s Bedroom that sounded like he was making a long deep exhale.
