Condition of the home:

House was built in 1989. All utilities are up to date and in working order. The house is structurally sound, windows and doors are solid but are subject to sounds and drafts coming from the outside.

Investigation began: 6:00 p.m. took a tour of the house, 7:00 p.m. set up, 7:30 p.m. started investigation, 10:40 p.m. ended investigation.



GOGPI was called in to investigate the above claims of activity. We set up stationary cameras in the reported active areas of the house. We then started investigating the rooms in the house by taking EMF and temperature readings, all were within normal limits, and conducting EVP session throughout the house. We did not get anything in our pictures or video. We did record numerous EVP’s. A couple investigators had some personal experiences, see below. We used a black light and UV light to try and determine if the splatter in the kitchen was actually blood. There was no reaction to our lights but advise to have samples tested to make sure it is not blood.

With the claims of activity from the client, personal experiences by the investigator, the EVP’s that were recorded we feel like there is paranormal activity in the house. We feel that the activity is not harmful for the home or the client and family. We cannot say the house is haunted without a follow up investigation to see if we can reproduce the claims of activity, personal experiences, and to gather more evidence of paranormal activity.

Personal Experience summaries from investigators on the investigation:


While in the investigating the kitchen/breakfast area I saw a shadow go across the kitchen cabinets near the ceiling, we were unable to determine a cause. While conducting and EVP session in the same area I heard what sounded like someone snap their fingers. The noise came between Brian and I and Brian said he didn’t snap his fingers or make any other kind of noise. He did not hear the noise.


No personal experience.


Below are some of the EVP’s we recorded from the investigation.  Since some of the EVP’s are faint we recommend turning up the sound and listening with headphones. What we hear in the EVP’s is listed below.

What we hear:

1- Faint voice between the two investigators, can’t make out what is said, then a yawn at end of clip.

2- Breath

3- “Bad pepper”

4- “Hello”

5- Finger snap noise maybe “Leave” after the noise
