INTERVIEW
 
            Michelle was the investigator who brought this case to M and M Investigators.  She had been in contact with the residents of the home and has known them for a little while.  They informed her of the activity that they had been experiencing in the home.  The residents stated they had heard footsteps, knocking sounds, and a large light fixture reportedly moved on its own and set itself upright when no one was around.  The major concern expressed was with the male resident.  Family and friends noticed a change in his personality and demeanor; he was no longer the happy-go-lucky, fun loving guy they knew him to be.  He seemed depressed, withdrawn, and at times, mean.  He went on to explain that one night he had been working late in the basement and came upstairs around 02:30 a.m. to get a shower.  While in the shower, washing his hair, out of the corner of his eye, he saw a small hand and arm pull back the shower curtain; as if a small child were peeking in…however he was the only person home.  As startled as he was by this event, he found someplace else to stay for a few days, and the residents contacted our investigator, Michelle.
 
INVESTIGATION
 
            On the evening of July 12, 2013, we arrived at the cozy little home (built ~ 1960) and started to set up the equipment.  Hi 8 video was set up in the master bedroom and kitchen.  Digital audio recorders were placed in the master bedroom, living room and kitchen in attempt to collect electronic voice phenomenon (EVP).  Digital photographs were taken inside and outside of the home to try to capture paranormal activity in pictures. 
            Electromagnetic field (EMF) detectors were used to sweep the home for any EMF anomalies.  Free-floating or EMF not associated with an electrical source (i.e. an appliance like the microwave) could be indicative of paranormal activity.  Non-contact thermometers were used to measure ambient temperature and monitor for any unexplained temperature variations.  Unexplained cold or hot spots may be caused by paranormal activity.
            A red laser was used to set up a laser pattern on the staged light fixture to see if it would be moved again and if we could catch what was moving it.
            We attempted to use the “ghost box” and even though it was cycling through all the different stations, there was one that came through continuously.  This made it useless to continue with this piece of equipment for this investigation.
            We did several sessions with the Ovilus III.  We may need the resident’s help to figure out the relevance to some of the words it gave us, if they do have any relevant value.
 
OUR FINDINGS
 
            There was no video evidence of paranormal activity obtained during this investigation.  However, several EVPs were collected, including knocks and what sounded like tap dancing, to what sounds like the spirits trying to get our attention and asking for our help. (Listen to the best ones on our EVPs page)  There are a couple of photos that have some orbs which appear to be dust and a few questionable pictures of a mirror in the master bedroom.  (These can be seen on our pictures page)
            There were no anomalous temperature variations recorded during the investigation and there were no unexplainable EMF readings.  There was an area of concern due to the residents having a light fixture and fan running in the basement directly below their bed causing high EMF levels at the head of their bed.  This could cause a lot of problems if not fixed.
            Nothing disturbed the staged light fixture and the red laser.  Nor did we find anything else moved in the house during the investigation.
            As for the Ovilus III, upon entering the children’s room, it promptly said “main”, but would not give us anything else to help clarify what it meant.  From there, in the master bedroom, it gave us three words in fairly quick succession; “Ours, Highway, and Beat”.  Also, during one of our sessions in the living room, the Ovilus III gave us several words, including a name, “Jim” that led us to believe Jim may have been a truck driver killed in an accident near the home’s location.  We have been unable to verify this information at this time.  However, there have been a number of motor vehicle accidents, including fatalities, on the roads near the home.
            Investigators also reported having personal experiences in the home.  These included seeing a very large red orb in the bathroom, hearing someone say something that came from the bedroom area, when all the investigators were in the living room and kitchen area.  Finally, one investigator reported seeing something that looked like a large moth in the living room a couple of times during the investigation. 
 
            M and M Investigators says, there seems to be some paranormal activity going on here, whether the resident’s collecting of antiques, the fatal road accidents, or EMF is to blame or are collectively resulting in the activity.  We will work with the residents to ensure they feel safe in their home.  Hopefully we can also help the spirits who are asking for help.

Investigation: 

 

On September 3, 2011 we arrived at the home and were greeted by the clients. Upon arrival the clients began taking us room by room and describing numerous events in great detail and filling us in on any knowledge of past occupants of the home. After the walk through and discussions we did or preliminary investigation which consisted of a total sweep inside and out with K2 meters and EMF detectors, in which we discovered high EMF readings (3.0 milligauss and above) that extended some 30+ feet from the outside of the home. We then brought the clients outside and showed them what we had found and explained the effects that tend to go along with high EMF readings. The effects of the high EMF were very visible to the clients in the reaction of one of the pets that they brought out with them.  The pet went from being very calm, to excited and agitated when brought into the area of high EMF.  The group of us then had a briefing on the appropriate course of action and decided to use the ghost box.  The ghost box provided little information that the clients had not already described.  We then move into a cleansing and house blessing versus a traditional investigation. With the history and report of activity that the clients were giving us, we felt this would be the best course of action.  Mike and Michelle then did a cleansing and blessing of the home and had the home owners help with cleansing and anointing crosses which they had hanging as symbols of protection.

 

Our Findings: 

 

We did the ghost box session that was inconclusive, possibly due to interference from outside sources, since we could not determine the cause of high EMF.

After the discussions with the clients about certain occurrences it was thought that a cleansing and blessing was the action needed because there was a strong suspicion that some of the activity may have been caused by outside influences. Mike and Michelle did the cleansing and blessing rituals and had the clients participate by cleansing and anointing their crosses. Upon completion of these rituals there was almost an immediate calm throughout the home, even calmness came to the clients and their pets. We left the clients with some advice on how to keep activity from recurring in their home and the opportunity for us to come back if needed.

INTERVIEW

M and M Investigators received a call from a Dover , DE homeowner.  She explained that she and her children had moved into a home that had belonged to her in-laws.  When the homeowner would spend time in the house by herself, she would notice some minor activity while cleaning out the house before moving in.  The homeowner informed M and M Investigators that the father-in-law had passed away in the home and she felt that the activity she was experiencing was him.  The activity is reported to be experienced almost exclusively by the homeowner and not the children; which as many know is opposite of the norm.  The homeowner is concerned that the activity would frighten the children and they would no longer be comfortable living in the home.  The homeowner reported activity including: the bottles that stand on the top of the cabinets being laid down, photos being turned upside down, feeling like she was touched (having hair pulled, hugged, etc.) noises – sounds of furniture being moved upstairs and finding nothing out of place, voices, knocking sounds, hissing and growling; she has seen unexplained shadows and shadow figures peeking around the corner in the kitchen; an unexplained “something” coming down the stairs.  Much of the activity seemed to be centered around the basement door to begin with, and then the activity transferred to the garage door.  The door handles shaking, doors opening even though they were locked (and remained in the locked position).  The homeowner has had her alarm company come out and check the alarm system several times because none of the activity triggers the motion sensor or sets off the alarm system.

            The homeowner stated that the home was about 40 years old and that her in-laws had been the only occupants.  She shared that her in-laws were private people who kept to themselves for the most part.  Her father-in-law was retired Air Force and had an interest in the Tuskegee Airmen. The homeowner explained that her father-in-law also passed away in the home.

INVESTIGATION

            On August 6 2011 , M and M Investigators conducted an investigation of the home.  Black and white night vision cameras were placed in the hot spots.  In the lower living room, cameras were set up to cover the room and stairs to the kitchen; and through the room to the front door to include both the garage and basement doors.  A camera was placed in the dining room to cover the kitchen.  Two cameras were placed in the upper living room, one on the couch to cover the room, foyer, base of stairs and kitchen stairs.  The second upper living room camera was used to cover the stairs to the bedrooms and the doors to the bedrooms themselves.  Digital cameras were used to take still photographs in an attempt to capture possible paranormal activity. 

           

Digital Audio recorders were placed in the upper and lower living rooms, foyer, master bed room and were carried by investigators in attempt to record any communications from entities that may be in the home or the noises that the homeowners reported.  ElectroMagnetic Field (EMF) detectors and K2 meters were employed to sweep and monitor the area for variations in the EMF fields which could be indicative of paranormal activity.  A Non-Contact Thermometer was also used to check for variations in the ambient temperature.  Cold or hot spots without a specific cause could also be indicative of paranormal activity.

A session was also conducted with a ghost box in an attempt to allow the spirits to communicate with the homeowner and investigators.

OUR FINDINGS

           

     Upon thorough review of the data collected in our investigation, M and M Investigators noted the following:  The black and white night vision cameras picked up some unexplained activity.  In the lower living room, just a few feet from where her father-in-law passed away, a bright orb appears to tear its way into our plane of existence only to explode and have the fabric of space/time come crashing back into its self.  See the video clips on our videos page.

     There was no photographic evidence captured during the investigation to suggest paranormal activity. 

     Review of the digital audio recordings revealed only a couple Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVPs).  All of the EVPs occurred prior to the Ghost box session.  After this, there were no further EVPs…everything went quiet.  The best EVPs will be posted, give a listen and let us know what you think.

     There was a baseline temperature of 70 to 73 degrees throughout the home (a degree or two warmer in the upstairs bedrooms).  An unexplainable temperature reading was recorded during an EVP session in the lower living room.  However, there were no EVPs associated with the 6 degree temperature drop.  There was an elevated EMF throughout the home.  EMF or K2 meter readings were 3 milligauss and greater.  Although, there did seem to be episodes when the EMF or K2 readings were responding to our questions.  Was this coincidence or interaction with the spirits?  It seemed to be a little bit more than coincidence. 

     M and M Investigators did have a few personal experiences during the investigation; while the homeowner was showing us through the home and explaining her experiences, investigators heard both an adult male voice and a female child voice.  As none of the equipment had been set up at this time, these voices were not captured on audio recorders.  Later in the investigation, the homeowner and two of the investigators heard another strange unexplainable noise (it almost sounded like a duck quack!)

     Since the Ghost box session did not transfer to audio well at all, we will have to chalk it up to personal experience at this time.  During this session it seemed that the spirits were able to communicate the message that they had been trying to get to the homeowner since she moved into the home.  We asked how many were here and received a reply of “seven”.  There were 4 investigators and 1 homeowner…well we had heard an adult male voice and a child female voice…we asked again to clarify and received the same answer, “seven”.  So, we asked for names.  The homeowner’s father-in-law stated his full name several times very clearly.  Also, a young girl said her name was “Abby”.  The father-in-law dominated the session to get his message across…electric, fire, and fix!  He was adamant and repeated this many times.

    

     M and M Investigators says: from the results of our investigation there does seem to be some paranormal activity in the home.  The activity was an attempt to pass on a message to the homeowner that she needs to look into the electrical system in the home to prevent the possibility of a devastating fire.  Having passed on the information, the homeowner says that the activity has dropped off considerably and she has already started looking into the electrical issues with the home.

INTERVIEW

 

On Saturday, December 11, 2010, M and M Investigators was granted access to an historic building in Delaware.   The location, history and description of this building have been withheld to ensure the privacy of the location and client.  Our contact, Mr. M. reported that one of the balcony doors in this building would unlock and open itself every year just a few days before the end of October.  Lights turn themselves on and off throughout the building and items in the building seem to move on their own. 

 

 

INVESTIGATION

 

On this cold, slightly rainy night, M and M Investigators arrived at 7:30 p.m.  Mike and Mr. M. did a walk through of the building to ensure there were no vandals or homeless people in the building that might present a danger to our team and compromise the results of our investigation.  No people or animals were found during the walk through.  Mike gave the approval for the team to start bringing in the equipment and setting up for the investigation.

 

Black and white night vision cameras were set up in the main hallways on the first and second floors, and the large room on the first floor (north east side).  A Hi 8 camera was used to conduct an experiment with a green laser.  Another Hi 8 camera was carried throughout the building for part of the investigation and then set up on the first floor on the south west end of the building.  Digital cameras were used by several investigators to capture photographic evidence of paranormal activity.

 

Digital voice recorders were placed with the black and white night vision cameras and carried with each team of investigators to capture Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVPs).  EVPs are the disembodied voices and unexplainable noises that are picked up by the audio equipment, but that were not present during the investigation.  Electro Magnetic Field (EMF) detectors and K2 meters were used to monitor the area for variations in the EMF which can indicate paranormal activity.  Ambient temperature was monitored with stationary and non-contact thermometers for unexplained temperature fluctuations.  Unexplained increases or decreases in temperature in a concentrated area may also indicate paranormal activity.

 

We continue our experimentation with the ghost talker (the paranormal puck).  This is a piece of equipment that has a large vocabulary of words in it that the spirits are supposed to be able to manipulate to communicate with the investigators.  We used the ghost talker to see if we could get something to communicate with us during the night in several areas of the building.  Another piece of equipment that received its first trial run was the green laser.  This laser is able to emit a star-pattern array of green laser light.  The theory is that you will be able to readily tell the presence of a spirit or shadow person by the way the star-pattern of green laser is affected. 

 

Finally, the last experiment that was conducted was on a slightly more personal note.  The three most “sensitive” investigators of the group were taken separately and at different times during the night, to the large “observation room” to participate in a guided imagery experiment.  This was to see what kind of impressions could be picked up by the sensitives and how their impressions would be alike or differ from another.

 

FINDINGS

 

After thorough review of the immense amount of data collected during this investigation, M and M Investigators has the following to report:  There was minimal evidence of paranormal activity captured in still photograph.  However, the small shadow figure that was captured was seen by investigators on the second floor on the south west end of the building prior to being photographed.  (See our Paranormal Photos page)

 

There are four video clips that were captured during the night of paranormal manifestations.  I will preface the clips by saying the windows are all covered (so no light is entering through any of the windows), and the light anomalies are not created by any of the investigator’s flashlights.  Two of the light anomalies manifest in the same area and apporate through the wall(s) into the next room or a room well down the hall.  Another light anomaly on the second floor seems to manifest in a room on the left side of the hall then, shoot across the hall to the room on the right.  Is one of the nurse’s continuing to make her rounds even after her patients are long gone?  Finally, another manifestation occurs while investigators are in the same room!  Are these the shadow people that the investigators saw and caught a picture of one?  Something else that will probably have to be chalked up to an unexplainable experience since it was not directly caught on the Hi 8 camera was during the experiment with the green laser light.  After the laser and Hi 8 camera were set up, the entire team went outside for a break.  Approximately 20 – 25 mins. after the team left, there sounds like very quiet, furtive, footsteps.  Then the laser turns off!  Then there are a few more of the footsteps. There could not have been anyone in the building as our team members had been throughout the entire building without encountering anyone and our cameras would have picked up a person’s movement through the building.  So, who turned off our laser?  (See them on our videos page)

 

We were also able to capture a number of EVPs during our pre-investigation tour with Mr. M. and during the investigation.  Men, women and children all seemed to have something to say to one investigator or another.  (Listen to the best of these on our EVPs page)

 

On our initial tour of the building we were able to determine that there were no EMF spikes secondary to electrical sources except at the electrical panel boxes.  However, during our investigation, there were several anomalous EMF spikes/k2 hits in the large “observation room”, especially during the guided imagery experiment.  Also, several pieces of equipment that were either fully charged or had new batteries before we started the investigation lost their charge or needed new batteries almost as soon as the investigation began.  It is thought that the spirits will take the energy from the batteries in order to try to communicate with us or manifest in some form.

 

The ambient temperature remained steady, only dropping a few degrees as the investigation wore on into the small hours of the night.  Only one temperature difference was noted during the investigation.  However, this was noted only as a personal experience due to the use of the thermometer in another area of the building at the time.

 

There were several personal experiences noted by the investigators through the night.  Several investigators reported being touched or feeling tugs on their clothing.  Everyone heard the sound of metal scraping on metal (furniture moving or a door closing), none of the investigators did anything to make this noise.  We were unable to locate or duplicate this sound.  One of the investigators had an overwhelming feel of being assaulted in the bathroom on the second floor near the stairs.  Many of the investigators commented that the large “observation room” was the coldest room in the whole building and at times there was an overwhelming feeling of fear and panic while in this room.  While using the ghost talker, Matt noted that the hand that was holding the talker was much colder than the other.  This was a busy night for all the investigators.  During the experiment with the sensitives and the guided imagery, all three sensitives had very similar experiences noting multiple spirits around them among other similarities.  One even seemed to be held in place by the spirits and unable to move until brought out of the guided imagery.  They all were affected by this experience; anger, depression, draining of energy, etc. 

 

M and M Investigators says that given the amount and variety of evidence collected during the investigation, this historic building in Delaware, is a case of a residual and intelligent haunting.

PRIVATE RESIDENCE - Dover, DE

Case # DE100210

 

M and M Investigators on this investigation:

Matt H. – Co – Founder

Sara F. – Lead Investigator/Researcher

Michelle L. – Investigator

 

INTERVIEW

 

M and M Investigators received a call from the owner of a Dover area farm house who expressed her anxiety/fear caused by what she felt was paranormal activity in and around the farm house.  The homeowner explained that the house had been moved onto the property in the early 60’s from Scarborough Rd.  She reports that she and her son have heard things such as someone humming when there is no one else around; and distinctively male and female voices heard by the homeowner outside of her bedroom window arguing or talking excitedly.  Things have moved, like the cell phone that she dropped in the bedroom.  When she could not find it on the floor, she reports she turned off the light and then later found it on the stereo in the living room.  The lights in the shop are said to have come on by themselves after the homeowner made sure they were off when she left the shop.  The hot water heater has reportedly turned itself off, then about three days later, it turned itself back on.  She has also felt something brush up against her and has had the door to the house repeatedly slammed behind her.  The homeowner also reports that she has found her car door open when she has made sure it was closed securely.

            Most of the activity seems to have started after a day of antiquing at Spence’s Bazaar where the homeowner picked up a box of antique kitchen utensils.  Going through the box of treasures at home, she found, at the bottom of the box, a photo album of some unknown family.  The homeowner kept the photo album for a while, not knowing what else to do with it, but some of the pictures were described as creepy, including those of a man who resembled Dracula.  After it got to be too much to keep the photo album in the house, she threw it out in the yard where it inadvertently was run over by the tractor while cutting grass.

 

            Prior to our interview, our Sensitive gave us some information regarding the name Joseph or Joe; an April (month) significance, and an approval of the charity work that is being done (something like the “Polar bear Plunge” for charity or a donation of books to a school).  The homeowner confirmed the name reference as a name used frequently in her family.  The April reference was the death of a very distinguished military service man in their family.  He is buried in Arlington.  The homeowner was rather shocked when we asked her about the charity work.  She explained some experiences that she had lived through and the organization that had helped her.  She had a desire to “give back” and help others that were going through what she did.  To that end, she had written a book and wanted to teach some classes.  She also told us that she helps with Meals On Wheels.  And again, our Sensitive shocks not only our client but our team with her accuracy.

 

INVESTIGATION

 

            On October 2, 2010, M and M Investigators arrived at the client’s farm house at 8:00 p.m.  We set up black and white night vision cameras in the living room, downstairs bedroom, and both upstairs bedrooms.  We also placed one of the cameras in the kitchen facing out the window at the barn.  We considered placing this camera outside with a clearer view of the barn but decided against it due to the number of feral cats in the yard.  Investigators also used digital cameras in attempt to catch paranormal activity in still photos.

            Digital audio recorders were placed throughout the house to try to capture spirit voices in the form of Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVPs).  Electro Magnetic Field (EMF) detectors and K2 meters were used to look for any variations in EMF in and around the house.  Variations in the EMF without an electrical source (refrigerator, alarm clock, etc.) could indicate paranormal activity.  Non-contact thermometers were used to monitor any variations in the ambient temperature that might indicate the presence of paranormal activity.

 

 

OUR FINDINGS

 

            M and M Investigators reviewed all the data collected during this investigation and found no video, photographic or audio evidence of paranormal activity.  There were no anomalous EMF, K2 or thermometer readings collected during the investigation.

            The voices and sounds that the homeowner has reported may have a relatively simple answer.  An investigator was outside, on the edge of the property and spoke in a normal, conversational tone.  This voice was picked up clearly on several of the audio recorders in the house.  How far a voice can carry over the fields and be heard in the house in unknown at the end of our investigation.  However, this interesting acoustical finding was significant. 

            M and M Investigators says: we did not find any evidence to support the possibility of paranormal activity.

Investigation

 

This case was first investigated by M and M Investigators in October 2008 (see http://www.m-and-m-investigators.org/investigations2.htm).  The homeowner contacted M and M Investigators to let us know that she was once again having some unexplainable things going on and that she would like us to come back to see what paranormal activity we could validate for her. The homeowner told M and M Investigators that two of the grandchildren’s toys were “talking” on their own again. The rocking horse had started making galloping noises when no one was near it, and even stranger was the jet plane that said “I’m hot, hot, hot, I got your back!” This is not something that is normally in the plane’s repertoire of sounds.  However, the homeowner states that it was something that her fiancé would frequently say when he was angry. This was heard by the boyfriend of the homeowner’s daughter at approximately 4:00 am as he got ready to leave for work. Also reported was an incident in the living room; the daughter was lying on the floor watching T.V. When her boyfriend came in to join her on the floor, their picture that was on the coffee table behind them fell. Then the decorative vine around the candle on the coffee table reportedly flew off and hit the boyfriend on the back. There are also reports of the hair dryer being knowcked off the counter to the floor by "something" and a decorative fiber optic globe coming on by itself and staying one color instead of alternating through the colors like it shold.  Family members are no longer as uneasy in the house as they were. One grandchild will still report that his grandfather is around, he sees and interacts with his grandfather regularly. The boyfriend has also reportedly seen an apparition of the homeowner’s mother. The boyfriend seemed to be a target of much of the activity that was now going on in the home. He and the daughter have recently moved in with the homeowner, possibly being a contributing factor to the reported activity. The boyfriend admitted that he lost his biological father early in life and has had unexplained experiences throughout his life.

INVESTIGATION


On August 28, 2010, M and M Investigators conducted our follow up investigation of this historic Liepsic home. Black and white night vision cameras were set up in the master bedroom, small downstairs bedroom, dining room, kitchen, back porch area and living room.  Digital voice recorders were placed throughout the house and carried by investigators in attempt to capture Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVPs). Electromagnetic Field (EMF) detectors and K2 meters were used to monitor in the electromagnetic field fluctuations in and around the home. Non-contact thermometers were used to sweep for variations in the ambient temperature. Unexplained fluctuations in EMF +/or temperature may indicate possible paranormal activity. 

 

We also experimented with a new piece of equipment on this investigation, the Ghost Talker. The Ghost Talker contains a large word base which the spirit is supposed to be able to use to communicate with us.  The experiment with the Ghost Talker was inconclusive as this was the first investigation M and M Investigators has used this new piece of equipment.  Although a few words werre said that may have some relevance to this investigation, no definitive evidence could be obtained.  Further experimentation with this piece of equipment will be needed before M and M Investigators can feel comfortable adding the Ghost Talker and its results to our repertoire of investigatory equipment and techniques.

OUR FINDINGS


M and M Investigators was unable to capture any paranormal activity on video or on the photos taken during the investigation. There were some EVPs heard when the audio evidence was reviewed, including one that lets us know…”I’m here.” 

 

There were some anomalous K2 spikes in the small dining area off the kitchen. However, the EMF meter did not register at all. It was difficult to determine if the K2 spikes were in answer to our questions or just a result of the refrigerator running. We were unable to conclude for certain if these K2 spikes were normal or paranormal in nature. No unexplainable temperature variations were noted during the investigation.  The toy rocking horse that reportedly made noise by itself again was not heard to make any noise on its own during the investigation. It could still be triggered to sound by just slightly moving the carpet under the toy. As for the jet plane; M and M Investigators could only get it to make the noises that it was programmed to make.  We "staged" the hair dryer, picture of the homeowner's daughter and boyfriend, and a few other objects to see if there was any movement during the investigation.  No movement of the staged items was recorded.  There was also no unexplained activity noted from the decorative fiber optic globe.  

 

M and M Investigators says there may be some paranormal activity here, but once again we were not able to collect much supportive evidence of the reported activity during our investigation. The inability to collect evidence to support paranormal activity does not always mean that there is no activity. It may just mean that we conducted our investigation on a quiet night or the spirits did not want to interact with us. 

 

M and M Investigators very much appreciated the opportunity to return to such an interesting location for a second investigation for such a wonderful family.

Gettysburg, PA

Just for a little vacation before the busy season started, we decided to go to Gettysburg, PA.  Mike and Matts' wives had given them the trip for a fathers day/birthday gift.  Of course Mike and Matt are going to say "oh yeah!  We are so there!"  So, in September of 2010 we all went camping....to Gettysburg.  Upon arrival at the campground (Drummerboy) we were greeted by people who knew of us and knew what we did.  They also gave us ideas on how to spend our time in Gettysburg.  So, after getting the camper setup and a much needed bathroom break, we all set out to get our barrings.  Mike had made reservations with a local ghost tours for that night but those plans fell through, with the promise that the next night with the group would be an even a better night and location.  So we went to find Sachs Bridge..which was no easy task.  You would think it would be on Sachs Road..nope!  So, we were driving at night and saw a monument that caught our eye, we stopped to read it, and within like 10 seconds the park rangers were upon us.  They asked us if we were having car problems, we said no.  They then said "You have to move on, the battlefield is closed".  Now of course, we were surprised to find out we were in the battlefield.  Then we asked them "Are we anywhere near Sachs Bridge?", they promptly said, "Yes." and actually gave us directions.  So we followed the directions and, lo and behold, we were at Sachs Bridge.  Appearently, the bridge is not only known for its paranormal activity but for a hang out for the local teens and other paranormal investigators.  But we made do with what we had and proceeded to investigate what we could.  The locals told us some history and some bs, but most stories had some of both.  We tried to record some audio and took several hundred pictures with both conventional digital cameras and a black and white, motion detection camera.  The audio from that night was...well contaminated by all the people there but we were able to fish out some pictures that were strange.  Those pictures are posted on our http://www.m-and-m-investigators.org/apps/photos/. Along with other photos that we took from our battlefield experience.

The next morning/afternoon we got up and got out to the battlefield.  The battlefield in Gettysburg is amazing and of course a place of reflection.  All the life, death and heroism that took place there, it is no wonder that people from all around the world come to just look.  But us being paranormal investigators, we have to do what we do..pictures, pictures and more pictures.  We took several hundred just at Little Round Top and Devils Den.  We were all amazed by the formations of the rocks there, and no wonder they used these big stones as cover. WOW!  So we then visited Devils Den..again wow.  The energy there is just crazy and it just grabs you and drags you in. Again Mike and Matt were approached by people who had seen their shirts, with our groups name on them.  Questions and questions but that was cool, we are always happy to answer paranormal questions and of course hand our some business cards. 

Later that night, the time came for our ghost tour.  After we arrived, we were handed equipment such as Mel detectors, lasers, voice recorders and emf detectors.  We were heading to a local haunt, where a man allegedly killed his wife and children...we will withhold the name of the location.  After receiving our equipment, we were told to go to our cars and follow.  We started to follow the lead cars (10 of them) and of course we were the last car in the line.  We hung in there for a while until we were separated by traffic lights at first and then by the local police who we assume were acting in an offical capacity.  Yeah right!  Anyway we lost them and no investigation for us.  We decided to go back out to Sachs Bridge but there was too much commotion/contamination going on for any kind of investigating.  So we called it a night.

The next morning we decided to call the ghost tours because we had about $200.00 of their equipment  We could return it and of course get our money back for the tour.  They were more than happy to see that we did not steal their stuff but not too happy about the chain of events that made us loose them on our way to the investigation.  We were given back our money and we gave them back there equipment (yes all of it).  We were then surprised to find out that nothing had happend during the investigation and were offered another night.  We declined because we were leaving the next morning..then another surprise happend..they said "The next time you are in town we will take care of you" and the woman (named Spooky) would personally take us out to her best spot.  Of course we were disappointed in not going on the investigation the previous night but everything always seems to work for the best.  Did I mention the tour group?.....No I did not...here ya go!  Gettysburg Ghost Tours and yes Spooky we will be back to take you up on your generous offer.

All and all we had a great time in Gettysburg and have already planned a trip next year.  You have to make a trip to Gettysburg a priority on your "Places I have to go" list.  This may have been our first trip to Gettysburg, and I can guarantee you that it will not be our last!

INTERVIEW

 

M and M Investigators received a call from a Westover, MD family.  They explained that they thought their little, out-of-the-way home was perfect for them but, since moving in about a year ago, there has been some unexplained activity and a “run of bad luck”.  The activity is reported to be experienced by the adults and not the children; which as many know is opposite of the norm.  The unexplained activity reported includes: noises – whispers, sounds of the children’s toys being played with and that of a truck slamming into the side of the house; dark shadows and figures are seen inside and outside of the house.  The husband reports being pushed by something after a dark figure crossed in front of his flashlight beam.  The family also says that they have experienced some uneasy feelings in certain rooms in the house.

            The homeowners were able to tell M and M Investigators that the home was built in the early to mid 1950’s and that a family that lived in the home previously had a family member in a MD State psychiatric hospital.  [Henryton State Hospital was opened in the early 1920’s, originally to provide quality care to African Americans suffering from tuberculosis.  In the early 1960’s Henryton was converted to the training of the severely retarded.  Henryton closed in 1985.]  This family member is also rumored to have died of a heart attack on the property.  Envelopes of the family’s correspondence with the family member in the psychiatric hospital, was found in the house by the current homeowners.

 

INVESTIGATION

 

            On March 20, 2010, M and M Investigators conducted an investigation of the home and property.  Black and white night vision cameras were placed in the hot spots, including the living room, both upstairs bedrooms and the front porch.  A black and white night vision motion-sensor still camera was also set up on the front porch.  Digital cameras were used to take still photographs in an attempt to capture possible paranormal activity. 

            Digital Audio recorders were placed in the living room, dining room and both upstairs bed rooms in attempt to record any communications from entities that may be in the home or the noises that the homeowners reported.  ElectroMagnetic Field (EMF) detectors and K2 meters were employed to sweep and monitor the area for variations in the EMF fields which could be indicative of paranormal activity.  A Non-Contact Thermometer was also used to check for variations in the ambient temperature.  Cold or hot spots without a specific cause could also be indicative of paranormal activity.

 

OUR FINDINGS

 

            Upon thorough review of the data collected in our investigation, M and M Investigators noted the following:  The black and white night vision cameras picked up some unexplained activity.  In the upstairs bedroom to the left, there are a few camera shifts.  No one was around and the cables do not move.  A flashing orb was recorded in the upstairs bedroom to the right and on two different camera angles, a paper mask (one that covers the eyes, ala the Lone Ranger – does that show my age?!) falls from a bulletin board.  No one was in the room at the time.  In fact this occurred at approximately midnight as part of a cluster of evidence.  See the video clips on our videos page.

            Photographic evidence seems to suggest that all family members of the previous homeowners may not have moved out, however none of the photos were difinitive.  No shadow figures or orbs were documented photographically.  Review of the digital audio recordings revealed several Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVPs).  A couple of the EVPs addressed Mike.  Others seemed to sound as if they were African-American.  Many of these EVPs occurred at or around midnight and then everything went quiet.  This is another part of the cluster of evidence.  Listen to the EVPs and let us know what you think. 

There were no unexplainable temperature readings recorded during the investigation.  The homeowners denied having experienced any cold spots or hot spots.  One of the homeowners states they are always cold and the other homeowner states they are always hot.  There also was no unexplainable EMF or K2 meter readings.  Matt was able to trace the power from the home to the street, once in the street, the reading became more tenuous and was lost.

            M and M Investigators did have a few personal experiences during the investigation; while investigating in the bedroom upstairs to the left, Mike heard a growl very close on his left side and felt a touch on his left wrist.  Mike also heard a growl coming from a small room off the kitchen earlier in the evening.  Matt and Mike both witnessed an unexplained flash of light while investigating in the dining room.  The flash of light was not the K2 meter we had set up near by.  The video of this was reviewed several times; however the K2 meter does not flash, nor is the flash of light that Matt and Mike saw visible.

            M and M Investigators were unable to obtain evidence to confirm or debunk the shadow figures reported by the homeowners.  However, through the evening until shortly after midnight little noises and whispers were noticed.  After midnight, the activity seemed to stop.

            M and M Investigators says: from the results of our investigation there does seem to be some paranormal activity in the home.  The family admitted to having recently had a treasured family pet, a large dog, pass away…could this be the source of the growls heard on the evening of the investigation?  Is the family pet still trying to make sure his family is safe?  Are previous home owners lingering or are there issues with the land that the home is built on?  The homeowners admit that many Native American arrow heads have been found in the area.  However, there was no evidence collected in our investigation that would suggest anything harmful or negative toward the family currently living in the home.
