GOGPI was called in to investigate the above claims of activity. During bas readings we found high EMF throughout the whole house. We feel this is caused by the wiring in the house and is not paranormal, the temperature was normal for conditions.

We did not get anything in our pictures or video but we did record numerous EVP’s. Some of the 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. 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 investigating the living room it sounded like something moved in the toy box in the corner. Twice my recorder shut off on its own. I thought I accidentally shut it off when I was carrying it, but that is not the case. Both times once in the girls room then once in the bathroom. Both times the recorder shut off in the middle of evp sessions. In the bathroom Christy wanted to check hers and we were joking about being paranoid about recorders shutting off, right after I checked mine it shut off. The batteries were not low.
The only personal experience I had was in the hall bath (with Larry) when I heard what sounded like shuffling in the tub behind the curtain.

I had no personal experiences.
