Davenport, Iowa Investigation February 12, 2013
Background and Reported Activity
MVP was contacted by a mother concerned about activity surrounding her teenage son as well as other activity occurring within the home. Activity reported to MVP included the following:
-The son woke up and felt something warm on his neck, he then drove to where his mom works because it scared him. He hadn’t even looked in the mirror at that point and she said he was white as a sheet and shaking. She saw the marks on his neck and he had some on his torso too.
-The mother saw shower curtain move for no apparent reason.
-The mother heard the bedroom door slam shut, with no one home.
Temperature upon arrival was 15 degrees with a mostly cloudy sky. The moon phase was Waning Gibbous.
MVP arrived at the home around 7:15PM with members Becky Reid, Bryce Carlson, Steve Danielsen, and Diana Smith in attendance. House set-up and environment readings are as follows:
-The entry way had a temperature of 69 degrees and a base electromagnetic field reading (EMF) of 0.1-0.2 milligauss.
-The main hallway had a temperature of 70 degrees and a base EMF reading of 0.2 milligauss.
-The living room had a temperature of 70 degrees and a base EMF reading of 0.1 milligauss.
-The kitchen had a temperature of 71 degrees and a base EMF of 0.1-0.2 milligauss.
-The bathroom had a temperature of 70 degrees and a base EMF of 0.1-0.2 milligauss.
-The son’s bedroom had a temperature of 70 degrees and a base EMF of 0.1 milligauss.
-The master bedroom had a temperature of 70 degrees and a base EMF of 0-0.1 milligauss.
There were no indications of any high EMF fields in the home.
Following a tour of the home and brief interview, the investigation commenced around 7:40PM, with the client leaving the premises. The investigation was wrapped around 9PM.
Command Center was set up in the kitchen, with Bryce doing data entry and time-keeping. A real-time digital voice recorder was set up in the kitchen and monitored by Bryce. A REM pod was set up in the son’s bedroom, then moved to the house’s hallway halfway through the investigation. An EMF pump was set up in the son’s bedroom, next to the REM pod. There were 3 mobile voice recorders, a cell sensor, and a K2 meter. The team also set up a new geophone.
The flashlight experiment was attempted in the living room, with no results. A spirit box session was also tried in both the living room and son’s room, with limited success.
At 7:50PM, both Becky and Diana heard a clicking sound coming from the hallway while sitting in the living room. At 8:10PM, both Becky and Diana witnessed a shadow dart from right to left while sitting in the living room. Becky also felt the couch shift as this occurred. There was no source of the shadow that could be determined.
The team was sitting in the living room and Bryce in the kitchen and clicking noises kept being heard from the hallway: noise in hallway
Here is a response from the spirit box, though it doesn’t indicate any paranormal activity, it is interesting: hes here
No video cameras were used during this investigation.
Because most of the activity that brought us to this home was focused on the son, MVP was hoping to interview him to try to find the source of the activity, however he was either unable or unwilling to speak to us, therefore we can only report on what was found during our investigation. Based on our findings, we cannot say that any activity is occurring in the home at this time.
