We arrived on location at 8:30pm. After seeing our clients off, we began our sweeps for EMF and temperature and photographed each room. During set-up Melissa reported seeing a black shadowy apparition going down the hallway into the spare bedroom. We could not find a natural explanation for the sighting. After set-up we all sat very quietly in the living room area. We start this way to allow the location to calm down and return to a neutral state. After a few minutes we began our first basic EVP session. We had K2 meter activity basically since our arrival and this continued most of the night. We had numerous direct response K2 hits and Mel meter spikes. During this session, a few investigators started getting pinched and had the feeling of cob-webs or a static like feeling. We also had some temperature changes. Melissa reported having her arm stroked repeatedly and had to ask whatever was doing it to back off. Ben reported hearing a whisper and Melissa also heard whispering. Because of the constant activity and shift in the energy, we decided to take a brief break and then split into smaller teams.
After the break, Melissa, Amanda, Karli and Amy went to the Master bedroom and the guys, Ben, Ryan and Kris stayed in the living room. During our line of questioning, it had directly responded to questions about not liking or respecting women, so that is why we split this way. The ladies reported no K2 meter activity. Amanda reported getting pinched pretty hard on the stomach and Amy reported that her hair was being touched and also her arm was touched. After not getting any activity, the ladies rejoined the guys in the living room. We decided to have the guys check out the spare bedroom and do an EVP session. The ladies remained in the living room and did another EVP session. Both teams reported K2 meter activity. After about 15 min we decided to take a break to regroup.
After the break, we decided to do an EchoVox EVP session. The session was very chatty and we had a hard time getting any direct responses. After about 10 minutes, we wrapped up the investigation. We closed by saying protection prayers for the family and made sure to close any spiritual doors we may have opened.
This was a challenging case because of the amount of tragedy and activity involved with the location. We do not have any doubt that there is something paranormal going on. We believe that there are a couple things going on in this case. One, there is a possibility that there is more than one intelligent entity residing with the clients. We captured a few different voices in EVP’s and that is why we believe that. Second, there is definitely residual energy hanging around and there is a chance that there could actually be a residual haunting as well. The difference between an intelligent and a residual haunting is an intelligent entity can interact with the living and in residual case, they cannot as it’s more like a stain from a traumatic event or from a highly emotional event that replays over and over. You may see an entity, but they are not aware of your presence and cannot interact with you. Now in cases of just having residual energy lingering, that means there is almost like a residue hanging throughout a location, caused by a traumatic event, high emotion, sickness, arguments, etc.
We feel that the entity(s) that are present are not there to cause any harm or to intentionally try to scare you. We do not believe that they are negative, but one seems to be on the stronger side and may come across that way. More than likely, this entity needs help to cross over and is stuck or reluctant to leave for some reason. Maybe they are familiar with the property or are comfortable there. We feel another one to be of a protective nature and there for that reason only. Protection against what is always a question, but in this case we feel that this person might have ties to one or both of you before their death.
It’s so hard to prove who and why, so all we can do is to go through the evidence, your testimony and our personal experiences to try to come to a conclusion that makes sense. We did get quite a few EVP’s that can validate our experiences and yours, so that’s very helpful.
With so much tragedy , we can only imagine the amount of negative energy that had been left there and the cause of all the unfortunate circumstances is still unknown. Could it be something more sinister and land based? It’s hard to say. Is it a curse? That depends on what you believe in. The thing we do know for sure is its incredibly sad and heartbreaking and those who have lived through the trials life has thrown their way will always be in our prayers.
Our suggestion is to definitely have your home blessed by a member of the clergy from the church of your choice. This will help aide any entity that needs to cross and will remove any residual energy from the home. If that isn’t something you’re okay with, the other option would be to cleanse the home with sage. We can guide you on how to do that. Salting doorways and windows will help seal the home and that might help anything else from getting in. We also recommend learning as much as you can about intuitive abilities and how to shield yourself.
As far cleansing the entire property goes, that would take a lot but can be done. You can also bury St. Benedict medals in the four corners of the property for protection from evil and negative entities. That may help ease the mind as well.
