This rural gable-front style home was built sometime during the 1920's. The history of the property around the house is vague, yet interesting. Prior to white settlement, an Indian trail ran nearby. One story from the early days of settlement reports that two murdering thieves were hung in the vicinity of the house.
Reported paranormal activity consists of a full spectrum of unexplained phenomenon: Disembodied voices, unexplained smells, apparitions, shadow figures, physical contact, and cold spots.
A strange voice says "Ethan" after the owner of the house asks her 4 year old daughter to tell her about Ethan. Ethan is reportedly the name of a small boy who plays with the girl in the house. Ethan also played with the niece of the previous owners of the house in the early 80's.
Here's the answering voice slowed down, amplified and modified to remove noise.
Our Talker says the name "Ethan" twice. The Talker is an experimental ITC (Instrumental Trans-Communication) device that uses phonetic speech to attempt communications.
Our Frank's Box answers "seven" when an investigator asks how old Ethan is. A Frank's Box, or Ghost Box, is another experimental ITC device that scans AM/FM and low band frequencies to create a noise matrix that spirits can theoretically use to communicate.
The Frank's Box says "Patty" after an investigator asks if the entity knows her.
A high pitched voice says "gonna get you" in the basement.
Here's the same recording slowed down, amplified and modified to remove noise.
A male voice whispers what sounds like "hell is coming" in the basement. There seems to be a very nasty entity that frequents there.
Here's the same recording with a lower pitch, slowed down and amplified.
The nasty entity in the basement seems to call our investigator a "whore" while using our PX box in phonetic mode. The PX is another experimental ITC device that senses environmental changes to create speech.
The entity continues with his verbal assault as the PX seems to say "asshole".
After the investigators questioned the entity's presence, the PX answers "I am here" in phonetic mode. The odds are heavily stacked against this being a randomly produced phrase.
The PX box says the complete phrase "hear it now" in another recording from the basement.
A male voice whispers "not me" in the basement.
A clear child-like voice says "thanks" three times in this recording from the basement.
"I'm in a hurry" - During the initial investigations the basement produced some interesting audio phenomena. In this recording, a child's voice says "I'm in a hurry" as the evp activity here continued.
"Help me" - A voice whispers "help me" in the basement.
"We opened your eyes" - A strange male voice seems to say "we opened your eyes" in this eerie recording from the basement.
"Yes" - Historical research shows that a previous owner of the house once accidentally killed a young woman with a car. A voice seems to confirm this in this recording. The answer is followed immediately by an unexplainable hit on our e-probe, which detects electric fields.
Here's the answer from the same recording amplified and filtered to remove noise.
"Come here" - A male voice says "come here" in the basement.
"Die" - The kitchen, a spot that was quiet during previous investigations, produced some of the most interesting evidence. A male voice seems to whisper an ominous message in this recording.
Here's the whispered message enhanced for clarity.
"Lemon pie" - A previous lady of the house loved to make lemon pies according to historical research. When asked if the smell of lemon pie was in the kitchen, a voice seems to confirm this.
Here's the answer from the same recording enhanced for clarity.
Thermal imaging cameras, also called Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR), can theoretically detect temperature fluctuations generated when an entity is present. Theoretically ghosts effect the surrounding environment by drawing heat from the air, or by producing heat.
This photo was taken as a warm spot moved down a stair banister. The speed of the hand print and the time required between FLIR shots prevented more than one photo being taken.
This investigation produced compelling EVP evidence. We were also able to use a few types of experimental technology which produced some interesting results. Based on the history of this location, the evidence gathered and personal experiences, we believe that legitimate paranormal activity is occurring at this location.
There is a lot of background history here that may or may not be of importance but is interesting just the same. There seems to be a lot of incidence of death associated with the general area near this location. In an old story from the early days two murderers were hung in the vicinity and several people were killed in car accidents nearby. In one of the accidents, a 25 year old woman was killed when she was struck by the car driven by a previous owner of this house.
One frightening personal experience occurred in the basement. The PX box began saying "look, look" as an investigator stared into the sink. She looked up into the mirror and saw a tall man with dark hair standing behind her. She could not see his face, only the top of his head. This apparition was not seen by the other investigators and was not documented by the Infrared video camera capturing the scene.
Based the evidence gathered and personal experiences, we believe that multiple entities are responsible for the unexplained phenomena at this location. The evidence seems to suggest a haunting or hauntings that, with further research, could be attributed to entities tied to the place.
