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 on one wall in the basement which had a high reading due to electrical wires in the wall, also 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, 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:


I heard a bump sound upstairs while in living room investigating with Chris. (I think something or someone was trying to get my attention on the landing upstairs). I thought I saw a flash or shadows. I took several pictures of the area. Also, when in spare bedroom with Chris, we heard a low tone vibration several times. It almost sounded like a cell phone on vibrate. There were no phones in the room and we could not find source of sound/vibration.

Sensitive Note: I could sense Cassie’s grandfather Lawrence with us and upstairs on the landing. Did not feel anything negative in the home. Overall feeling of peace and love in the home. 🙂


I heard several knocks while investigating the master bedroom upstairs with Ed.


While in the living room I heard some bumping from upstairs. Beth and I were in the spare bedroom and we heard a vibration sound coming from between us or in the closet but we couldn’t find any thing.


My experiences consisted of hearing a strange noise while sitting at base with Christie. While in the master bedroom I heard what sounded like floor boards popping in the hallway outside the bedroom door, this occurred twice.
