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 did record numerous EVP’s. Some of the investigators had some personal experiences, see below. Some experiences were what the client had experienced.
With the activity experienced by the client and her son, personal experiences by the investigators, and the EVP’s that we captured we feel like there is paranormal activity in the house but feel it is not negative. 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:
While in the boys room I did hear what sounded like a shuffling noise in the hallway near the family room. Also while in the family room I heard a similar noise that sounded like it was coming from the kitchen area.
I heard the same shuffling while with Ed. Also while in the boy’s room I did see a white light and could not explain it.
While in the master bedroom with Larry, I heard a slight scratching noise but could not determine where it came from (outside or in).
In the boys room, I was standing near the window and Larry was standing near the door – I too saw a white light that I could not identify. One in the corner near the ceiling by the boys bunks beds and once over Larry’s head. I did not see or hear any cars passing by at that time.
While in the living room, I was sitting on the fireplace – I thought I saw a dark shadow near the doorway from the hallway and then I thought I felt something brush against my leg. I have 2 cats and my first thought was to reach down to pet the cat, except they don’t have one.
Kept seeing white lights flashing on the ceiling in the hallway. When Larry moved into the formal dining room and I moved into the foyer, I discovered the flashing light was actually a Carbon Monoxide Detector that was mounted on the ceiling.
