The current residents asked us to investigate strange noises and activity they have experienced. We were given a tour of the home, and told about the activity they have experienced there. The residents claimed experiencing hearing footsteps, knocking, and the physical movement of furniture.
One of the most important things for a paranormal group to do is capture solid evidence of paranormal activity. Further, its just as important to capture evidence that backs up what the resident claims is happening at the location, and that will back up experiences had by the paranormal investigators during their investigation. Lastly, its also important to present rational explanations for those events that are found to not be paranormal.
We will cover Video evidence first, followed by EVP's, and Photos if any of the above were found. One note regarding Orbs. Many paranormal professionals dismiss Orbs outright. Far too many groups try to present paranormal Orb evidence that allegedly show Orbs, when in fact they are bugs or more likely dust. D.A.P.S. does not completely dismiss Orbs as a legitimate paranormal event, however, D.A.P.S. is very cautious about presenting what we believe may be legitimate Orbs unless there is compelling evidence as to the Orb being a legitimate paranormal event.
Our findings are as follows.
During the investigation, the D.A.P.S. team took nearly 20 hours of Digital IR Video footage and an additional 3 hours of Full Spectrum Camcorder footage trying to capture signs of paranormal activity. After carefully reviewing the footage, we only found one anomaly. This was a fluttering light captured in the East Bedroom. This is the room where the most activity was reported including the movement of furniture. Investigators looked in the basket under the little night stand and found a remote control. Obviously this light fluttering is the remote. The mystery is, the remote was sitting buttons up with nothing on top of it, so why was it activating? This is the only time this occurred.
Besides the video and digital photo evidence, the D.A.P.S. teams were able to perform a lot of EVP and audio Spirit Box sessions trying to make contact. On review of the evidence, we found a few interesting and unexplainable EVP's.
Note: For the best listening experience of Spirit Box clips, use headphones and adjust the volume to medium/low on your PC. For the EVP Clips, turn your volume up.
This EVP was captured during the investigation with the digital recorder that was in the old Master Bedroom. This happened when the room was unoccupied. This is a clear recording. What you will hear are footsteps in the hallway. The second file down is volume enhanced.
True paranormal activity on any equipment is much sought after by paranormal investigators. This however is extremely difficult to obtain for various reasons. On occasion, paranormal investigators get what they are seeking. You never know what your going to capture until you review the evidence. You also never know what piece of equipment will be the one that captures the undeniable evidence you are looking for. D.A.P.S. is constantly updating and adding to its equipment roster.
This investigation had us quite excited from the beginning. We were contacted by the resident and told of furniture being moved in the East Bedroom. Often they would find the bed undone, and occasionally some small piece of furniture had been moved. One day they checked after hearing noises up in the East Bedroom, and found the bed undone, the bed moved across the floor, and the recliner flipped over onto the bed. The resident took a hurried photo using their cell phone of the scene. This can be seen below.
That was a compelling photo. We were hoping to capture something moving during the investigation. Nothing unfortunately appeared on any of the video footage, but when the audio recorder was picked up in this room after the investigation had ended, the investigator noticed that that small slothes rack where he had set the recorder and had ensured that the rack was up against the wall, had been moved. We reviewed a lot of photos and video footage attempting to find proof that, one, the clothes rack was up against the wall, and two, the rack had moved sometime during the investigation. It did. In the series of photos shown below, we show the recorder placed on the clothes rack and the rack up against the wall. We show two additional shots from different angles clearly showing the clothes rack up against the wall. Then a final shot, not a perfect shot, but good enough to show that the clothes rack had moved.
