Answer: Door slam sounds heard between 11 pm and 1 am

Question: How do the visual apparitions appear?

Answer: Just a shadow.

 

Question: Have there been any movements of objects that you see?

Answer: When we were redoing the bathroom, we were using the old sink in the basement. A razor was set parallel to the sink. When I got out of the shower, it was lying across the sink. This happened twice.

Answer: N/A

 

Question: Any teleportation (things moving from one place to another)?

Answer: N/A

Answer: Door slamming heard a lot. Sounds the same no matter which room you are in. Faint, as if in a different part of the house. Have also heard distant voices. Sounds like gibberish with four or five voices talking at once.

Answer: Sounds like gibberish

Question: Any rushes of wind?

Answer: Just the breezes.

Answer: No

 

Question: Did previous occupants, neighbors or landlords know of phenomena?

Question: How far back can you trace the history of the property?

Answer: Can trace the property records to 1857. Do have copies of the previous owners deeds.

Polish/Hush - 08:40 PM - 14th November, 2003 - Private Residence - Elmo, MO
00:00 / 00:00

The group was interviewing the owners of the house when this was recorded. The voice seems to say: Polish (though some respondents believe it's saying, Hush).

00:00 / 00:00

The group was still interviewing the house owners at the time of this clip. Member Bryan asked if the owners had seen strange things in pictures they had taken. One of the house owners spoke of such a picture when this voice was recorded as saying, "Hey...help."

I Love You, Can We Ride Upstairs With You - 08:56 PM - 14th November, 2003 - Private Residence - Elmo, MO
00:00 / 00:00

Everyone moved into the kitchen at this point in the investigation, where the owners graciously fed the group. During this clip, one of the owners mentioned how she could make tea, coffee, or Kool-aid. Bryan said that he had brought some soda to the investigation but that it wasn't very cold. The other house owner mentioned how they had bought a bag of ice. You will hear Bryan opening a bag of chips when this EVP was recorded as saying, "I love you. Can we ride upstairs with you?" The first time you hear the EVP, the audio is in its original form. The second time some filtering is done, and the third time you hear the EVP, the clip is filtered and amplified.

I Love You - Modified - 08:56 PM - 14th November, 2003 - Private Residence - Elmo, MO
00:00 / 00:00

Many thanks to website visitor Bill L. from Minnesota, who provided us with this version of the previous clip. It has been modified to remove more of the "metallic" background noise, so the voice is easier to understand. In this more precise version, it sounds more like the voice is saying, "I love you, though I shouldn't like you." 

Help Me, Help - 09:20 PM - 14th November, 2003 - Private Residence - Elmo, MO
00:00 / 00:00

The group and house owners were still in the kitchen when both of these EVPs were recorded.

I'll Check Up On It - 09:21 PM - 14th November, 2003 - Private Residence - Elmo, MO
00:00 / 00:00

The group and the homeowners were heading towards the stairs to the basement. One of the homeowners asked the other if they had their flashlight (Maglight.) He responded that he didn't, and she said she would get it. Bryan then asks if it is safe to come down yet (because one of the homeowners had to go down to turn on a light). You will then hear an EVP say, "I'll Check Up On It."

00:00 / 00:00

Bryan decided to take the E.L.F. detector to the basement by himself. The rest of the group remained with the homeowners on the other side of the house. After walking around the basement, he started to head back upstairs. On his way back upstairs, a couple of E.V.P. were captured. To save on download time, the minute-long segment was cut in half to highlight each E.V.P. separately.
