The clients had recently built an addition to their house which included a dining room/living room, master bedroom with bath, and a laundry room. They believe that two spirits occupy the house, with the previous owner occupying the original section of the house and a darker spirit occupying the new section of the house.
Temperature upon arrival was 66 degrees with a mostly cloudy sky. The moon phase was Waning Crescent. Storms moved into the area during the investigation.
MVP arrived at the home around 7PM with members Becky Reid, Bryce Carlson, Stephanie Adams, Diana Smith, Steve Danielsen, and Terry Enright in attendance.
House had a temperature of 68 degrees with no notable EMF fields detected.
Following an interview and tour of the home, the investigation commenced at 7:45PM, with the homeowners leaving the premises. The investigation was wrapped around 10PM due to severe weather concerns.
Command Center was set up in the dining, with Bryce doing data entry and time-keeping. There was a voice recorder positioned in one of the front bedrooms with a video camera in the same room for a part of the investigation. Another recorder was placed in the dining area, by our Command Center. Another recorder was placed in the master bedroom for half the investigation and was mobile for the rest. There was one additional recorder that was mobile for most of the investigation. A geophone was placed in the kitchen area to detect any movement. Additionally, there were two digital cameras, one Mel meter, and a full-sprectrum digital camera.
The flashlight experiment was attempted, with mixed results. The K2 session also was performed with mixed results.
At 8:24, both Steve and Terry reported an unexplained sound, possibly a growl, coming from the kitchen. At 8:31, Becky reported an unexplained shadow crossing the back living room. At 8:45, Terry reported witnessing a yellow ball of light in the back living room. At 8:58, Diana reported seeing a dense fog or mist in the master bedroom. At 9:02, Becky reported seeing shadow movement in the hallway. At 9:30, Steph and Bryce reported a shuffling-type sound coming from the kitchen. At 9:51, Becky reported more shadow activity in the hallway.
This is a cough or similar sound that we were not able to explain: cough
Terry’s camera was recording when Becky saw the shadow at 9:02PM, and this is what was captured: 9 02PM bug or shadow that Becky saw
This is again from Terry’s camera, it is the response to Steve that was also captured on our voice recorders: “9 01PM possible response to 9 01PM possible response to Steve
There were several personal experiences that occurred in this residence, some coinciding with what has been experienced by the family. The team did not stay nearly as long as they would have liked, due to the storms, and as a result have already scheduled a follow-up investigation to occur at a later date, and we can hopefully put this family at ease.
