Investigators Notes

Bryan Kaplan:Interesting house. It's my opinion that a lot of what takes place is happening around Josh and not the property. Nonetheless I did record some EVP. I do wish the environment was more controlled than it was.

Kelli Patrick:I used Sony nightshot video, EMF detector, laser thermometer. My laser thermometer didn't detect any temperature changes at all throughout the house. My video camera was set up in the brother's bedroom at the front of the house. My video didn't catch anything unusual. We investigated the house and we stayed for awhile in the back bedroom that had the most activity. There was a sense that something was in the room with us. We did check the house for electrical interferences and the doorway that went into the back bedroom sent our EMF detectors off like crazy. It also was high around the left side of the bed (alot of electrical outlets next to the bed). This is our reasoning for increased activity in this room is all of the electrical energy leaking from the lines. This is going to be most likely the cause for the problems in the house, at least this room.

Becky Ray:I had my video camera set up in the hallway pointed towards the bathroom and captured nothing unusual. My photos all came out normal.
This home is built on the New Madrid fault, and has never been re-wired. We did discover a major electrical leakage in the bedroom directly next to the bed that would be responsible for headaches and possibly other health problems. Also, the power company spikes back up each night around 3am, which would explain why he is being awakened then.

Miranda Stark:This house was built around 1901, and the electrical wiring has since never been updated. The home is located in an area on the New-Madrid fault line. And there is some underground water source from the Mississippi River flowing directly beneath the home. These factors all contribute to massive energies that are contained within the atmosphere of this living space. The first thing I noticed was the erratic EMF readings, especially in the main subject's bedroom. The problem with such high levels of EMF is the result of physical illness, and mind-altering effects. Long-term exposure to these fields can* even cause terminal disease. The subject is spending a great deal of time being exposed to EM fields while sleeping in his own bed at night. We were able to locate massive amounts of electrical leakage coming from the outlet beside the nightstand. The subject has complaints of experiencing headaches, and of being awakened at regular intervals on a nightly basis. Two possible theories exist with this case. 1) Mind-altering effects as a result of EMF overexposure 2) An existing energy source that is readily accessible to spirits for eased manifestation I captured no evidence to support theory number 2, yet I did capture enough to support theory number 1. The location is at such a distance from us, that follow-up investigative work is very unlikely, so we have what was gathered from that evening alone to base our conclusions upon.
