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 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, and some of the experiences matched some of the claims of activity in the home.

With the claims of activity from the home owner, that were experienced by more than one person, the investigators personal experiences, and the EVP’s we feel the home has paranormal activity. We recommend a follow up investigation to see if we can duplicate some of the results of this investigation along with finding more evidence of paranormal activity.

Personal Experience summaries from investigators on the investigation:

Ed:

Hearing a disembodied voice at the back door while letting the cat in, I thought it said “Hey Ed”. I checked with everyone and no one said they called me.
While sitting in the kitchen eating dinner out of the corner of my eye I saw movement in the hallway to my left but no one was there.
While in the kitchen investigating heard what sounded like heavy breathing, sounded like someone in a deep sleep and breathing deeply. Unable to find the cause.

Beth:

No Personal Experiences.
Psychic Impressions:
1. Names – William, Willford, Willard or Wyatt.
2. Writer – Reading
3. Politics – Wrong side of the fence. Secret meetings
4. Medicine – Practice medicine in the home – underground medical treatments – off the books, psychology, Doctor
5. Professor – University
6. Atlanta Native
7. No children in the home over several owners
8. Wealthy white people – $$$
9. Actors/Actresses
10. More strong male energy in the home – Women on the back burner
11. Man of the house
12. In Living Room – picked up on a different really nice man – great character, funny, sweet. Another W name. Also picked up on Witchcraft around the fireplace area. Looked until I found Tarot cards. That was the source of witchcraft vision. No judgment – just needed to get my attention for some reason.
13. In Guest Room – picked up on the reason the light cannot be fixed over the bed – is for Robin’s protection. Light is a fire hazard. Very clearly got they missed a short in the wire. The short is very difficult to find. Also more smoke alarms needed at the front of the house.

Larry:
1- While outside on the front porch i seen what seemed to be a small shadow move across the brick wall. Could not debunk
2- While investigating in the dining room with Beth and Larry I heard what sounded like a male voice. Could not make out what was said, but had that old time radio tone to it.


What we hear:

  1. “No”
  2. “Smitz” then “Dede”
  3. “Keeps what he takes” Near end of clip.
  4. Breath
  5. Two taps
  6. “Where” then “On the corner”
  7. “Yes” or “Yep”
  8. “Yes”
