GOGPI was called in 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 get anything in our pictures or video. We did record several EVP’s. A couple investigators had some personal experiences, see below.

With the claims of activity, personal experiences by the investigators, the EVP’s that were recorded we feel like there is paranormal activity in the house. Through our EVP’s and what Larry had heard we feel like whoever was present at the time we were there did not want us investigating. This does not indicate that it was harmful but we felt like it didn’t want to be bothered by us investigating. 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:
Ed – I had none.
Larry – While setting up a camera I heard a male voice say “I don’t need this shit”. I asked Ed and Chris if it was either of them, and they both said no.
Christie – I had no personal experiences.
Jill – I felt a very cold spot on my right elbow during setup and saw a grey, misty ball outside by the tree line.
Chris – I didn’t have any personal experiences



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. “No”
  2. “Not yet” near end of clip
  3. “No”
  4. “Get out of the way” after investigator asks if anybody here.
  5. “Yes”
  6. Thump noise
  7. “Never”
