Dani was our lead investigator this past Monday night when our week began. She investigated with a young married couple who came in with open minds, which is key to a great investigation! They started their night in the Slave Quarters where they brought out two pieces of our new equipment- the new REM Pod and the new Motion Sensor. Dani put the Motion Sensor behind the curtain in the room and it went off a few times- strange, given that there was absolutely no one behind the curtain near the wall...
At the Stage Area, a few very strange things happened. While they were watching the TV monitors, there were some orbs flitting across the screen very rapidly, changing course in mid-flight. While the investigators were trying to make contact with spirits they suddenly heard soft, old melodic music coming through the Ghost Box.
Another strange thing happened in the Residual Area. They were asking the spirits they were conversing with if they knew secrets, which they were told they did, and a spirit named Veronica came through. Veronica tried to touch the husband of the group, but apparently could not.
Ted had a pair of investigators with him on Wednesday night who had not really done any investigating before. The night had a strange vibe to it- it seemed quiet but like the building was on the edge of something big happening.
Paul made contact at the Stage Area. While the investigators were watching the TV monitor, Ted asked, "Paul, could you get us three tall, frosty beers?". The response was firm and quick- "NO". But, it wasn't Paul who answered! It was a female voice.
In the Gribble House Area, there was a lingering scent wafting through the area. However, although it's usually where the investigators smell that strong, floral perfume smell, tonight it wasn't quite the same. Ted took the investigators into that area twice during the night- once for the overview and then a second time to seriously investigate. The first time they went into the Gribble House Area, one of the investigators, Tom, said he thought he smelled stale beer. Later on, both Robert and Tom smelled it again and thought this time it was more like perfume.
They had a pretty cool response through the Ghost Box in the Slave Quarters. When they went into the room, they got the name Cecile come throught. When they said 'Hello Cecile', the response they got was 'Hello boys'. Pretty cool!
We had Kelley as our lead on Thursday evening with a great group of investigators- they were really into it! One of the men who came into the building was a minister, and he had some interesting experiences. While they were in the Gribble House, there was a lot of chatter with religious undertones coming through the Spirit Box. The group had turned on their Spirit Box before they left the Safe Room and as soon as they walked into the Warehouse the words "Lord" and "Father" came through. They heard words like "Church", "Cleanse", "Pray", and "Reverend" on both the Ovilus and the Ghost Box. When the word "Pray" came through, the group bowed their heads and said a prayer for the spirits in the building. When they had finished "Demon... killed" came through the Ovilus. Very interesting.
Another group who investigated on Thursday night was the Rodriguez family. Quite a few of them had their names come over the Spirit Box. Their names were called after they asked the spirits who they would like to talk to . When they asked them who they were speaking with they heard names like Sue, Elvis, John, and Nate.
One of the men in this group of investigators, AJ, had a very creepy encounter. As he was in the Slave Quarters, he started to feel strange, and then got the sensation of hands being wrapped around his neck. Scary!
Kait and Kelley took the lead on Friday night! Kelley was spending time with one of the groups when she captured this cool EVP.
"Don't...like...people." is what I hear coming through the Spirit Box...how about y'all?

The other group that investigated with Kait and Kelley were using the Ovilus in the Slave Quarters. The word "Eat" came through a few times on the Ovilus, so they asked what the spirit wanted to eat. The response was "Pizza" over the Ghost Box. This group spoke Spanish to one another quite a bit, and to the spirits as well. Some Spanish responses came through back on the Ghost Box, which is really cool.
At the Stage Area, a pair of investigators had some amazing activity with the EMF detector. They were able to get the spirits to touch the EMF detector and light up very vibrantly when they asked politely. They also had some significant temperature drops that they documented with the Digital Thermometer. The temperature drops came in direct relation to the the EMF activity.
And Saturday! Kelley and Ted lead the investigation for Saturday night. Lots of crazy activity in the building. The Stanley group had some very strange encounters. While they were in the Slave Quarters, one of the ladies in that party had her back touched! It felt like someone had laid a hand on her back and was rubbing it. When one of the other women asked if the spirit was touching her friend, the word "Back" came through the Ghost Box. You can hear that exchange right here:
Her friend told her that someone was touching her back, so she asked the spirits about it, then "Back" came over the Spirit Box, so that creeped her out.

For obvious reasons, that investigator was pretty unnerved by that! We totally understand that. After a few minutes, she continued to investigate and continued to get some great reactions through the equipment.
The ladies investigating that night had some really good give and take all night long. One investigator, Kayla, was singing to the spirits in the building. At the Stage Area, she asked the spirits if it was okay if she sang to them. The response she got was "Just sing". These ladies heard from a lot of female spirits, and a lot of children, as well.
There were actually quite a few child responses in the building on Saturday night. In the Slave Quarters, an investigating group of five made contact with a child as soon as they walked into the room. While using the Ovilus, the word "Papa" came up right away. The Raggedy Ann doll and the Ghost Meter Pro was very active for them- so active in fact, one of the investigators swore she saw Raggedy Ann's head move slightly, like someone was touching her.
It was a great week for us, and for our investigators. We'll be posting videos, EVP clips and more images as the week goes on. If you see yourself, or if you'd like to post anything you've captured yourself, feel free to tag us with @gribblehouse or #gribblehouse!
