Investigation Update 3.27.2016

Hello Gribble fans! It's once again time to catch up on what's been going on inside the building.

Kelley was our lead investigator on Sunday night. Everyone stayed together in one big group, and they started their night out on the Stage. Almost immediately, both the Boo Bear and the Raggedy Ann Doll started to light up while on the floor. Thinking that perhaps they were being energized by child spirits, they used candy as trigger objects, as well. Child voices did eventually come through the Spirit Box, but they were sort of slow and soft.

When they moved into the Gribble House area, there was a voice coming through the Spirit Box with a distinct Irish accent. Both the Spirit Box and the Ovilus were chatty with mostly names, calling out and reading Ashley, Harriet, Owens, Donna, Jeff, Nate, Matt, Ed, Tom, Chris, Ash, and Jesus.

The investigators were able to capture quite a few orbs in the photographs on Sunday night, but some of the best activity they had was using the Ghost Meter Pro. When they would ask questions and wanted a yes or no answer, the Ghost Meter Pro really came through- one flash for yes, two flashes for no.

Kelley led the investigation on Monday night, too. This time, everyone broke up into three separate groups. There was a LOT of EMF activity in the building that night. Two specific spirits kept making contact with all three of the groups that night, in almost every hot spot of the building- Tom and Paul. In addition, one phrase in particular kept being called through the Spirit Box, for all of the groups. "Speak up" they would hear come through while they were asking questions.

While in the Slave Quarters, the investigators asked how many spirits were in the room with them. "Twelve" and then "There's a lot" came through. "Are there children here, too?" one of the investigators asked. "There are" was the response.

The EMF activity was happened all over the building, with energy flashes not only on the EMF Detectors, but also on the REM Pod and the Motion Sensor. Wherever Kelley moved the device to, they would flash up.

Kait and Kaitlyn were our leads on Tuesday night with a great group of folks. They started the evening in the Slave Quarters, were a lot of the random chatter coming through the Ghost Box was unsettling, and distressing. They heard "Sick" being yelled at them, and a very strangled and angry "KILL ME" was called through. When the ladies investigating asked if the spirit would touch the red light of the EMF detector, instead they heard "Run".

While at the Stage Area, the EMF Detector kept lighting up, but only when the investigators were singing nursery rhymes.

When the groups moved to the Gribble House area, they were able to make contact with Steve. He told them that he liked to be called "Awesome". At one point, the investigators could smell the scent of floral perfume, which is usually captured in that hot spot. They asked Steve who was wearing the perfume and he replied "Eliza". The investigators all got goosebumps at that point, and documented a deep temperature drop using the Digital Thermometer.

They heard from Steve again in the Residual Area. This time, he told everyone that Kaitlyn was his girlfriend. She said "Tell them something funny, Steve". His response to that was "I'm dead" through the Ghost Box.

On Wednesday night, Kait and Kelley were the lead investigators. They started everyone out in the Slave Quarters this night, and the first thing that came through the Spirit Box was "Ann"- this was just after they had placed the Raggedy Ann Doll on one of the folding chairs. After Ann came through the Spirit Box, she began to light up. The investigators asked "Are there any children in here?". The response was "They're asleep... in the bedroom". Strange.

At the Stage Area, they made contact with a little box named Jacob, who told them he was eight years old. They tried to get Jacob to tell them what he would like to play with. When they offered him the Boo Bear, he said he "Didn't want" to play with it. He then told the investigators that he didn't like to "Play by the river". They also made contact with a spirit named Robert, but most of what was coming through the Ghost Box were murmurs and mumbles.

When everyone was having their free time investigating, they had one strange moment. An investigator was asking questions about time and location- "What year is it", "Where are we"- that sort of thing. When they asked "What country are we in", the response they heard was "Iraq".

Ted was our lead investigator on Thursday night, with a very active building! When they started at the Stage Area, the spirit communicating with them was not very pleasant. He told them several times to "Stop", and even said it in conjunction with the names of other spirits. "Paul... stop... leave" was called out. The investigator asked "Did Paul die here" and the response they got was "Idiot". "Do you want us to get out" they asked, which was followed by a loud "SHUT UP".

When they moved to the Gribble House hot spot, the first thing they heard was "Livid... Paul". But the most interesting thing that happened in the GH area was with the Raggedy Ann oll. One of the investigators walked in carrying her and placed the Doll on one of the folding chairs. She asked "Can you knock the Doll off the chair?" but the response they got was "Can't do". They asked a few questions, and nearly ten minutes passed before they heard "Raggedy" come through the Ghost Box. As soon as that happened the guests felt chills and got goosebumps and the Raggedy Ann doll fell out of the chair!! Incredible!

The Raggedy Ann doll was active again the Slave Quarters, but this time she just kept turning off. Ted turned her back on and then she really started flashing violently. When the investigators asked who was touching the Doll, they heard a woman say "Ida", followed by "Trouble". The investigator asked "Who's in trouble", which was followed by a deep female voice saying "Your ass!".

Kelley and Kaitlyn were in charge for the night on Friday, and the building was just as active as the evening before. One fellow investigating that night, Joe, had some strange experiences. Not only was his name called several times through the Ghost Box, and he felt as if he was touched at one point, but it seemed like the spirits were trying to draw him around the building. After leaving the Slave Quarters hot spot, the responses he was getting from the Spirit Box sounded like they wanted him to go back in.

In the Slave Quarters, the investigators documented a few temperature drops. Although it was pretty warm in the building, and pretty warm in all the hot spots, the Slave Quarters felt much cooler, but there were a few times when the temperature dropped considerably. Using the Digital Thermometer, they documented a drop to 66 degrees from 75 degrees. After they noticed this, through the Spirit Box they heard "We're suffff... we're suffocating". Creepy.

Another investigator, Leo, not only had his named called through the Ghost Box five times, but also had it called with the word "Judge", which is pretty cool, because that is his occupation.

Several of the investigators noticed that the batteries on their phones died quite quickly once they entered the Slave Quarters. Others captured a lot of orbs in their photo graphs. One investigator asked if the spirits could tell her what color her shirt was, and the response was "White", which was right!

And finally, the night before Easter had Ted as the lead investigator. The warehouse was very active- everyone had a good time, and there were even a few startling, even scary moments!

One investigator, Dee Dee, had her name called through the Ghost Box several times at the Stage Area, but it wasn't all that nice. Not only was her name called, but they also heard "Dee Dee, you are an idiot". When she asked "What is your name?", the response they got was "Cole". Another guest, Julie, asked "What is your name" again. This time, the response was chilling: "You... Julie".

When they moved into the Gribble House area, Ted said "Counting me, this group makes five". Through the Spirit Box they heard "Make that seven"- very interesting! The pair, Julie and Allen, had another odd experience in that hot spot. They heard "Allen" and then "Husband", but the pair wasn't married. Ted commented on that saying "Okay, they aren't married" and "Maybe" came through. That was quickly followed by "Julie".

In the Slave Quarters the investigators heard "Anne Doll" come through, and she started to flicker.

The Residual Area had some pretty awesome moments, as well. The investigators asked "How many spirits are here" and the response they heard was "Too many". When it came time for the night to come to a close Ted said "We are leaving now" and everyone heard "Do you have to"?

It was a really great week for us, and everyone who investigated in the Gribble House. If you see an image of yourself, go ahead! Tag it! Or, if you have an image or video clip you'd like us to see, send it direct or tag with the @gribblehouse or #gribblehouse.

Investigation Update 3.20.2016

Happy Saint Patrick's Day from the whole Gribble House Paranormal Experience Crew! This is always a busy week for us, and we collected some fantastic evidence. Here's what's been happening-

Kelley was our lead investigator on Sunday night. The building was very active, especially the Raggedy Ann doll and the Ghost Meter Pros. Even though the Spirit Box didn't seem to be as active as usual, the Ovilus was very chatty while on Question and Answer mode.

In the Stage Area hot spot, one of the couples was talking about how they were originally from Alabama. A few moments later, through the Ghost Box they heard "Bama" come through. There was a strange moment a few minutes later when it sounded like a cat coming through the Ghost Box- but not an actual cat. It sounded like a child was making the sounds of "meow", and that was what was coming through. Very odd.

So many names were coming through both the Spirit Box and the Ovilus. They saw Mandy, Daniel, Ian, Ann, John, Paul, Carrie, Jacob, Bert, William, and Mark.

Monday night was pretty active, as well, with Kelley as the lead investigator. There were several short, and direct answers to queries from the investigators. Some of these responses came up on the Ovilus, as well as coming through the Spirit Box, which is always a great thing.

A funny moment happened on the Stage when a drop of water fell from the ceiling and landed on an investigator. "You're wet" came through the Spirit Box just after the drop fell.

The investigators got called a few unpleasant names, and were told a few unkind things. "You suck", one investigator was told while asking questions. "Fat", "Leave", "Get out", and a few more especially unkind words came through.

Ted was our lead investigator on Tuesday night, with several folks including a pair of repeats from the night before- they had such a good time they wanted to go all over again. The building was very active and the investigation went very well.

There were quite a few names being spoken through the Ghost Box at the Stage Area. The investigators heard Paul, Maggie, and Bob. One of the investigators said "Say our names" and they heard "RJ" come through. This was especially strange because it's a nickname one of the investigators went by- Rowen Jade or RJ for short. Awesome! When it came time to move to a different hot spot, Ted said "We are leaving now". Through the Spirit Box they heard "SIT DOWN" along with a very strong spike of energy on the K-II Meter. One of the investigators said "Do you want us to stay?". "Yes", was the response.

In the Slave Quarters, as soon as they entered they heard the name Tom come through. They tried to make contact with children by asking "Are there any children here". The response they got was "Secret". They had brought candy into the building and mentioned that. It didn't entice any children to speak, but they did get a "Thank you".

Quite a few religious words came through both the Ghost Box and the Ovilus in the Residual Area. Heaven... Sent, Life... Holiday... and Bible all came through. There was a strange string of words that came up on the Ovilus- Affair, Produce, and then Harvest.

Kelley lead the way again on Wednesday night with a pretty active evening in the building. Although they didn't make contact with any children the night before, there were quite a few children's voices coming through at the Stage Area with Kelley on Wednesday night. Guests Steve, Laurie, and Megan all had their names come through after Ted asked "Do you know our names?". When the investigators decided to ask about the murders, instead of a verbal response, through the Ghost Box they heard a deep and angry growl.

In the Slave Quarters, two words kept coming up on the Ovilus- Holiday and Green... kind of funny considering the next day was Saint Patrick's Day!

Laurie spoke with a female spirit in the Slave Quarters who answered quite a few questions, including letter Laurie know that she was a slave.

Kelley was the lead investigator on Friday night with a super group, and Kaityln! There was a really cool moment at the Stage Area when they first started the night. They walked up to the hot spot and through the Ghost Box heard "Is Garry here"? Kaitlyn said "No, not tonight", but an investigator then said she thought she had just heard Kelley say he was in the building, and that she was going to get him. Very odd.

In the Gribble House area, a group of five investigators were getting pretty good responses through the Ghost Box. They heard a male spirit tell them that he was a "Ghost" that was "Killed". When they asked him how long he had been there, the response was "Years". Creepy laughter kept coming through in the background of the Spirit Box responses, so an investigator asked "Are you laughing at me?". "Yes" then came through.

The other group investigating had some great responses in the Slave Quarters. Paul talked to them in there, and when he was speaking the word Friend flashed on the Ovilus screen. As one of the investigators went to take Kelley's picture they heard "Ugly" come through the Spirit Box- rude! They heard a few names come through when they asked the spirits to identify themselves. They heard Patrick, Ed, Sarah, Tom, Paul, and Ted.

Saturday this past weekend was crazy in Savannah! We had two really great tours with Kait and Kaitlyn as our lead investigators. During the first tour of the night everyone started in the Slave Quarters. While in that hot spot the investigators made contact with a spirit named Maury. Through yes or no questions using the EMF Detector, they were able to find out that Maury was 19 years old, and although he was chatting quite a bit, he had "Nothing" to say to them.

There were a lot of orbs floating around the building that night. Not only did they show up on photos taken by the investigators, but while they were watching the CCTV monitor screens, they could see them moving around.

The Residual Area was by far the most active of the night- in fact, things got sort of crazy there. Nick, one of the investigators, decided that he wanted to go off on his own for a little while. A spirit named Gabe made contact with him, and talked with him for a long time. Nick told Gabe that his brother Michael had passed away in 2002 in the war. Gabe replied through the Ghost Box and said "It's David". "No, it's not David", Nick replied. Then a different male voice came through the Ghost Box and said "No, not David. It's Michael". Nick felt really strange about that, so he went back up into the Safe Room for a few minutes. When he came back out, that same male voice talked to him again.

Another group investigating had a lot of physical activity around them. Not only did they feel cool, strong breezes around them, but one man in particular felt like someone kept touching him, and his wife. Chills were very common for this group, and another investigator felt like someone was following them around.

The second investigation went very well, too. In the Slave Quarters, the Raggedy Ann doll was really active, but subjectively. The Doll had been sitting quietly on the folding chair for most of the investigation until one woman, the mother of the group, walked into the hot spot. Then she started flashing wildly- that is until one of the girls walked towards it. As soon as she touched the Raggedy Ann doll, she stopped flashing.

While they were in the Slave Quarters as well, the kept hearing the sound of scratching- like something was clawing away at the walls. But, they couldn't tell where it was coming from.

One spirit named Liam made contact with them in several areas of the building. At first they heard from him at the Stage Area, but when they moved to the Residual hot spot they heard "Liam's back". They asked Liam if he liked dogs or cats, and he replied "Neither".

A really great week for us, and for everyone who came to investigate with us. If you see any image of yourself or your friends, go ahead! Tag it! If you've got any of us you'd like to share, tag it with the @gribblehouse or #gribblehouse.
