On August 9, 2018, MVP was honored to be able to have the Clinton Public Library host our team for an informational presentation for their patrons! We had a good turnout of about 25, and we were able to share a decade worth of our adventures with our guests. We hope to be able to do more presentations around the Quad City area in the future, so stay tuned!
Temperature was 73 degrees with a mostly cloudy sky upon arrival.
MVP was contacted by a concerned homeowner about various unexplained activity going on in her and her boyfriend’s home. Some of the claimed activity included:
• Loud thuds that shake the whole house that happens often in the 10-11pm hour (many times at 10:47pm) with no explanation.
• Watched as shower items pushed off of lower shower shelf
• Remote for TV moved from loveseat armrest mid-air, moved out horizontally 3 feet mid-air, then dropped to the floor
• Front door creaked shut slowly, then slammed extremely forcefully, shaking the house
• Light hanging about the entrance would swing around with no apparent cause
• Entryway light swaying without any explanation
• Left phone in hallway to record during one night of activity, caught an EVP of a voice saying “Ring, ring, ring” without any TV or radio on.
A team consisting of Becky, Bryce, Diana, Amanda, Tony, and Ashley arrived at the house at 7PM to conduct a full investigation of the property to provide answers the homeowners. An interview and tour were conducted, and the team was able to listen to the EVP captured by the homeowner, and we can confirm that it does sound like a voice saying “ring, ring, ring.” After the homeowners left the premises, Bryce conducted a room-by-room temperature and EMF sweep, noting no unusual readings or spikes.
The investigation commenced around 8PM and several pieces of equipment were employed, including multiple voice recorders, cell sensors, and three K2 meters. There were several attempts to debunk many of the claims, but we were unable to do so. There was a lot of unusual activity with the K2’s as all of them were spiking all night long. We ruled out our cellphones as these are known to interfere with the K2’s. However, the K2’s were not spiking in predictable patterns and we were unable to discover the source.
We waited until the claimed 10:47PM to see if we could experience the house-shaking thud, but unfortunately, the sound did not occur. Following this, the house was quiet until the investigation was called around 11:20PM.
The following personal experiences were noted by the investigators:
Bryce – Heard some strange sounds in the basement, including what sounded like a scream that I captured on audio; can’t fully explain it, but can’t say it’s paranormal either. Caught a couple other unusual sounds in the basement but beyond that, it was a pretty quiet, uneventful night.
Becky – Only thing was I witnessed the unusual K2 activity, but had to leave the investigation early.
Tony – I witnessed the K2 activity, but also heard was sounded like a breath or exhale very close to me in the basement, which was also heard by Ashley but was not captured. Also had a chill on my back that was confirmed by an infrared thermometer.
Amanda – Throughout the evening we did try to debunk several of the claims of the family of different activity reported. I attempted jumping on the landing by the stairs to see if it would move the hanging pendent light above the entry way that the family has reported they have seen swinging. We also tried slamming the front door (which we were not able to actually slam shut because the door fit is tight) and this did not replicate the swinging. We were able to easily hear voices of neighbors outside of the home during our visit but I did not hear any of this on my own audio recordings.
We had numerous instances of K-2 meter activity. When one meter was set on the counter/ledge in the kitchen, several different times the meter did light up. The same thing happened when the meter was set by the table lamp in the living room corner. There were also several spots on the floor in the living room where K-2 activity was noted. It was not consistent and difficult to replicate. It didn’t necessarily seem like any kind of intelligent response but I also could not duplicate the circumstances to get the same result.
While in the basement I did hear a breath several times but did not have my personal audio recorder with me. I also did think I heard a voice several times while in the basement.
Ashley – No real experiences, except for seeing the K2 meters going off and hearing the breath in the basement with Tony.
Diana – I also didn’t experience anything out of the ordinary except for seeing the K2 meter going crazy.
9:46PM – Faint sound in the basement. The sound is barely audible, and may not be anything paranormal.
9:52PM – Basement scream. This was heard by Bryce in the basement, and subsequently caught on audio. Though it could possibly be audio matrixing since someone was walking around upstairs when it was caught, the sound seemed out of place.
“Nope” – caught on Becky’s recorder, a distinct answer to her question.
Evidence review revealed only a few things that were not fully explainable. Based on our experiences and the evidence caught, we cannot definitively say either way if paranormal activity is occurring in the home. We will be keeping in contact with the homeowners and will reinvestigate should the need arise. This case will remain open.
We have updated our e-mail addresses, so if you are wishing to have a free consult or investigation, please contact us at [email protected] and we will happily respond as quickly as possible!
Co-Founders Becky and Bryce
I am currently working on setting up a presentation locally! As soon as we have more information, I will be promoting this event! It will be fun to once again present our group to others.
A local investigation is scheduled for this month! I’m hoping to secure permission to put a report on our website, once it is concluded and results given to the homeowner.
If anyone is interested in MVP conducting a free presentation or paranormal investigation, please contact Becky Reid or Bryce Carlson for information or answers to your questions. We strive to inform others about the paranormal.
Are you interested in the paranormal or want to be part of an experienced team? If so, we welcome anyone to apply for membership. Please contact Bryce or Becky and we will email an application!
MVP is actively looking for places to investigate and help give answers to what may occurring.
Our investigations are always FREE and we attempt to make them as convenient as possible for the home or building owners.
A typical investigation takes place on a Saturday night and we investigate a minimum of 3 hours at the location. Prior to the investigation we will conduct an interview and walk thru.
We strive to review all evidence and present a report to the client within a 2 week period. If a location is very active, we are glad to come back and conduct an additional investigation.
Contact us and we will return your email in a timely manner!
The Southern Missouri branch has been hard at work. We have been meeting monthly and training our awesome new members. We are ready to investigate and provide the same level of professional service as our parent group. Check out our Facebook page @mvpsomo
The Missouri branch is about to kick off with their first group meeting this week! We will be posting photos and bios under our members section and look forward to helping the communities of South Central Missouri. We have a few investigation leads and look forward to working as a team.
Terry’s favorite video has been added to the investigators favorites now that the time period has expired.
