Muscatine Iowa Investigation #6
Reported Hauntings: This residence has been investigated by our group 5 times in the past. The owners had moved out of the location and when they moved back, they had these claims of recent activity. “ A friend was on a ladder and felt himself being pushed off the ladder, a back scratcher that was sitting on an air conditioner was thrown across the room, feeling of being poked while sleeping, remote was making the lights go off and on and fireplace go on and off, felt the bed being moved, hearing footsteps upstairs, the smell of pipe tobacco upstairs. They reported that 2 former tenants have died at the residence.
Weather: The temperature was 41 degrees and the sky was clear.
Equipment Setup: A digital voice recorder and a camcorder were placed in the upstairs bedroom area, stationary recorder in the upstairs front living room area, a cell sensor and mel meter in the upstairs hallway. Bryce recorded the majority of the investigation with his camcorder and Becky carried a zoom dvr.
Experiments Performed: The spirit box was used in the upstairs bedroom area. Interaction was attempted using the cell sensor.
Becky: I heard an unexplained knocking sound in hallway when Steve asked for a knock. While sitting on a computer chair in the upstairs front room, I could feel the floorboards shift under my feet. No one in the room had moved. I was sitting in the same area that Stephanie had sat during a previous investigation and she felt and heard footsteps. I witnessed the cell sensor going off 2 different times when it was laying stationary at each end of the hallway upstairs.
Bryce: Personal experiences include hearing a few unexplained noises and hearing the cell sensor go off twice for no apparent reason.
Steve: My personal experiences include recording a EMF spike from 0.0 to 0.5 then back to 0.0 along with a 5 degree temp. drop upon entering the upstairs door. Also recorded the same 0.0 to 0.5 to 0.0 in the upstairs living room. Heard what seemed like a knock in response to my question. Thought I heard footsteps in upstairs living room. Noticed spirit box replies when asking what his name was, replies were “Who me?” and “I cannot say it.” I also had the feeling like all of the hairs on my head were standing on end in the hallway. Feeling a sudden bone chilling chill while doing spiritbox in the back bedroom. Feeling slightly dizzy and again hairs on head standing up in living room. This is when Bryce’s camera could not focus on me.
Mandi: While in the living room I kept having feelings like something was pinching my elbow. When coming up the stairs from the basement it felt like something tugged my pocket.
