 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. The investigators had some personal experiences, see below.

With the claims of activity from multiple people, personal experiences by the investigators, 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

Ed: No Personal Experiences

Chris: While doing the initial walk through, I felt a tightness in my chest and several times I got cold chills.

Christie: While talking with the client in the living room I had an icy cold feeling on my spine. During set up I felt electricity on my hand. It only lasted for a few seconds.

Melissa: A cold chill up my spine when talking to Beth in the Master Bedroom about the painting.

Beth: I had a cold chill in the Living Room by the Dining Room while talking to the owner. No Personal Experiences after the owner and children left the home.



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. “I’m a cow bird” or “I’m a coward”
  2. “Okay”
  3. Strange sound like someone clearing their throat.
  4. “Yeah” after so where are we going first.
  5. “Ummmm yes” child’s voice
  6. “Do you want it” then “Hey”
  7. “Did you find us”
