Rock Island Private Home Investigation

MVP was contacted by a family in Rock Island, Illinois, with questions about us conducting an investigation at their home. The home was built in 1913 and several generations of the family had lived in the home. The grandfather and an uncle died in the home. The couple have lived in the home about 4 years. During the past year they have done renovations in the kitchen and since then seem to have some unexplained events occurring. He reported hearing someone say “honey” when he was in the bathroom. Thinking it was his wife, he opened the door and said “what” but could hear that his wife was downstairs, asleep and snoring. She reported hearing a female voice say “Mary” in her ear, while in the upstairs bedroom. The cat looks at the stairs and follows movement with her eyes. The cat also seems to be very interested in a closet in the bedroom and will try to get in there. That same closet door has opened on its own. Both reported the sound of footsteps on the stairs and unexplained clunks and noises.

Becky and Steph did an interview with the woman, while the homeowner  showed Terry and Diana the areas of activity. The couple left the home and the team of 4 proceeded with their investigation.

Most of the investigation was concentrated on the upstairs area since that was where most of the reports were from. After EVP sessions had taken place in all of the upstairs rooms, The team went downstairs and conducted another session in the living room area and tried to listen to the sound of footsteps on the stairs. They did observe the cat racing up the stairs like the couple had reported.

Personal Experiences:

Becky heard the sound of snapping like paper being moved, while in the office area. This sound was also captured on the digital recorder. While in the living room with Terry, Steph, and Diana I witnessed the K2 lighting all of the way up several times.

Steph reported:When sitting in the chair in the room with Terry, my hair started to feel tingling on top of my head, like something was barely touching it, or that it was electric. I said this outloud to Terry and he took a picture of me. A fairly big sized orb appears in that picture above my head. A picture was taken a few minutes later when I didn’t feel that way anymore and there was nothing.

Diana writes that the only weird thing was the K2 going off in the bedroom when Becky and I were in there. It had been placed on the bed and was lighting up all the way. Not sure if it was the phone making it go off though.

Terry wrote that he had heard some unknown pops and creaking sounds. He could have sworn he heard talking when we came down the stairs. He also felt a lot of static upstairs suddenly, at about the same time that Steph did. He witnessed some crazy responses on the ghost radar, but doesn’t feel that is trustworthy.

New Liberty Iowa Private Home Investigation

In November, we were contacted by a couple in New Liberty that wanted MVP to conduct an investigation at their home. Unfortunately we had to reschedule a couple times due to the weather. On January 8, 2011 a team consisting of Becky, Bob, Paul, Andrea, and Chris met at the home to interview the couple and perform a walk through of the areas of reported activity.

Reports of activity included doors opening and closing, loud noises, footsteps, lights going off and on, objects moving on their own, the baby appearing to be frightened of something in her room, bright lights, and shadows.

Chris and Bob set up camera, lap top, and real time audio in the babys room, Andrea and Paul went to the basement and Becky was in the living room with the homeowner . Becky started an evp session and at times involved the homeowner in it. Becky did hear what appeared to be a whisper at one time and the homeowner reported shadows out of the corner of his eyes. After a while, Paul and Andrea concluded in the basement and came back up to the main floor and joined Becky and the homeowner. Andrea decided to try out her “ghost box” that she had made and the group proceeded to do another EVP session involving it. There was a question that Becky asked, why would you want to hang around this house, and Andrea and Becky thought the response sounded like “spirit”. Becky then asked, “so you can’t pass over” and it sounded like a long drawn out “no” in response. After reviewing the audio during the box session, there did appear to be some responses to our questions. We do not consider the ghost box as proof of paranormal activity, but find the responses interesting.

Personal Experiences:

Bob: A strange event did happen at the New Liberty investigation that none of us could explain at the time. Upon leaving the babys bedroom, I tagged out loud the fact that I was opening the closet door to allow whatever may be in the house to move freely. I left the room and went downstairs to get some equipment and returned upstairs to get with Chris on our EVP sessions. I began my EVP session alone in the room as Chris was monitoring the audio in the room across the hall, on his laptop. I was startled to notice that the door in the childs room was now closed and almost seemed to be slowly swinging back open. The door moving could have been caused by shadows from headlights, but I have no explanation as to why the door was completely shut. This was one of the claims of the owners, that it has happened before.

Audio (contains EVP and “ghost box” sessions)
