Investigators Notes

Angela Hodge:Nothing out of the oridinary happened. Only time I felt something or noticed anything was when i was sitting on the bed. It was almost like my equilibrium was off but as soon as i left the room I was fine. I took some photo's but nothing came up and I did some recording which I'm still going over if anything comes up I'll post it. Other then that it was a pretty quiet night for myself.

Bryan Kaplan:Other than the strange event at the very beginning of the investigation (involving hearing morse code coming out of the radio in the kitchen ... which was off) nothing seemed out of the ordinary. I hope I will find some audio evidence from one or both of the recorders I used that night.

Hugh McLenaghan:I didn't feel or see anything while I was there. I didn't find anything from my pictures or video. Hopefully something will show with audio :)

Becky Ray:Our investigation this night was concentrated on the back bedroom/bathroom on the second floor where the owners' son had reported seeing a full figure anomaly.
While Bryan and Jennifer sat in the bathroom, the rest of us sat in the bedroom next to it. I was sitting next to the doorway so I could see into the bathroom where Bryan and Jennifer were. There were a few times when I saw what looked like a grey gauze like mist in the corner of the bathroom. When I would see this I'd ask Bryan and Jennifer what they were seeing, and they both reported seeing the same type of thing. I took a few photos of this area and following the flash from my camera on one of these both Bryan and Jennifer reacted at the same time. When we asked them what happened they both reported seeing something like a "face" appear between them.
Unfortunately, that was the excitement for the night! I am going over my still photos and video from the night and will post results soon.

Jennifer Sprague:I had a few strange experiences on this investigation, that I havent been able to fully explain. The main focus of the investigation was in the bathroom and a child's room. Upon entering the the entrance way between the bathroom and the child's bedroom I became extremely dizzy. It is interesting to note that Angela, who was with me at the time, also felt the same sensation. Upon investigating the child's room we noticed a signifcant temperature drop from 75 degrees to 54 degrees...which is a significant temperature drop. Whether that had to do with the venting in the house is yet to be determined. All through the investigation I continued to feel dizzy until we went downstairs. I noticed some of the other members had some physical problems in that room as well. As we investigated the bathroom, Bryan and I saw what appeared to be a strange shape of a face between us. It was there for a split second and then gone. I do not know if it was the residue from the flash messing with my eyes since we both saw this at at the same time after a picture was taken..but it appeared to me to linger AFTER the flash was taken.


Miranda Stark:The house is pretty calm most of the time. With the exception of some minor mysterious noises, the fleeting shadows from the corner of your eye, and that eerie feeling of being watched, I have to say that I don't feel much activity in the house on a daily basis. My oldest son did have a frightening experience this summer in the bathroom at the end of the hall, where he describes an encounter with a "dark, shadowy male figure". He is slowly getting over his fear of the bathroom. On the night of the investigation, there were some temp fluctuations, but we could most likely attribute most of that to air ducts. Bryan and Jennifer both said that they thought they "saw" something between them at one point when a camera flashed in the dark. I personally wonder if perhaps it was just a momentary trick of light due to the brightness of the flash.
