Investigation Update 5.22.2016

Wow! What a rainy week it was in Savannah. That didn't stop us from having some great investigations in the Gribble House, though. Here's what's been going on...

Last Sunday night, Kelley was our lead investigator with a great group. While there was only a little Rem Pod and K-II Meter activity, there was a LOT of Spirit Box and Ghost Meter Pro activity going on in the building.

In the Gribble House, there were quite a few moments of intelligent conversation, without any questions being asked. One of the ladies investigating had just taken a sip of water from their bottle, and through the Ghost Box they heard "Water" come through. When they did ask the names of the spirits who were in that area with them, they heard Tori, Herb, Haley, Jenny, and Lois. One of the investigators asked "Where are you?", and the response they got was "At Pete's".

When they moved into the Slave Quarters, the investigators tried some direct questioning in response to what they saw coming up on the Ovilus screen and what they heard through the Spirit Box. One of the investigators heard the name Chris come through, so they asked "Is that you?". "Yes", was the response. Over the Ovilus they saw the word Bible come up. "Are you religious?", they asked. "Yes".

Kelley took the lead again on Monday night with a couple who came to Savannah from Nashville. They had been on a few paranormal investigations there, but this was their first time using a Spirit Box. Despite it being their first time with the device, there was a lot of activity coming through on it!

There seemed to be children's voices coming through the Spirit Box in a lot of different areas of the building that night. While in the Gribble House area, the investigators asked if there were any children near them, and said "Raggedy Ann is here with us", meaning the Doll. Through the Spirit Box they heard "Look at Ann" come through. Cool!

In the Residual Area, the investigators made contact with a spirit who called himself Scott. When they asked Scott where he was, he told them he was "Hiding" from the "Party" "Upstairs". The investigators were unclear exactly what he meant, so they repeated it. "You're hiding upstairs from the party?", they asked. "I was". While this exchange was going on, the Ghost Meter Pro Kelley had set up on the stairs nearby was flashing like mad.

On Tuesday night, Ted was our lead investigator. There seemed to be a lot of physical activity taking place in the building, and not just in the usual hot spots.

When everyone was at the Stage Area, one of the investigators was watching the Close Circuit cameras on the screen. Paul was being his normal abrupt self when the investigator at the TV noticed the green "Running Man" symbol appear in the corner of Channel 6, to indicate that movement was taking place there. He could clearly see a shadow moving next to the Gribble House door, even though everyone was on the Stage.

In the Slave Quarters, another investigator named Jolene had her own moment of physical activity. Although she was sitting still and not moving around, she felt as if there were spider webs touching her face. This continued even after she brushed off her face. A few minutes later, when she moved into another seat closer to the curtains, she felt a distinct cold spot growing beside her. This was documented using the Digital Thermometer.

Another moment of physical activity took place while everyone was in the Residual Area. The investigators were making contact with a spirit who called himself Bob, who told them about his children. As they were asking him questions through the Ghost Box, they heard a loud bang underneath one of the windows. "Was that you Bob", they asked? "Yes", was the response.

Kait was our lead investigator on Wednesday evening. On this night, everyone started out in the Slave Quarters, where the activity began right away. As soon as they walked in, carrying the Raggedy Ann doll they heard "Ann" come through the Ghost Box and she began to flash. During their stay in the Slave Quarters, there were some pretty drastic temperature drops- all documented using the Digital Thermometer.

The temperature fluctuations seemed to be the theme of the night. Almost every hot spot experienced these drastic changes- like someone was moving the temperature gauge up and down. It became such a regular occurrence that Kait suggested to the investigators that they ASK the spirits to make the temperature change. Although Kait hadn't seen anyone successfully do that in a while, she asked them to give it a go- and it worked! While in the Gribble House area, the investigators asked the spirits to drop the temperature and it immediately happened. Awesome.

On Friday evening, Kaitlyn was our lead investigator. On this night, the groups split up into two. One of the groups started out at the Stage Area where they had a very interesting conversation with a spirit who would not tell them his name. He did tell them that he was a "Soldier". When they asked him what war he fought in, the response they heard was "The worst". There were two very distinct voices coming through at the Stage Area. The first was that soldier, and the second was that of a woman. The woman, however, did not have conversation with them. Instead, the only word they heard her say over and over was "Here".

The Slave Quarters was fairly interesting on Friday night for two big reasons. The first is because of the strange breeze that was flowing through the room. The odd thing about that is the room is completely sealed, and that the investigators could not find a source anywhere that it could have been coming from. And, although they could feel the cool breeze going past them, the investigators could not document a temperature drop, either.

The highlight of the night, though, was definitely with the Slave Quarters door, which is very large and heavy metal. The first group of investigators was sitting in there, and after just a few minutes in the space with the door closed, the door very quietly unlatched itself and began to come open. Kaitlyn asked "Are you, the spirits, moving the door"? Just after she asked this the Ghost Meter Pro sitting on one of the folding metal chairs began to flash wildly. One of the investigators got up and closed the door again and asked the spirit to open it again- to prove they are there. As she shined her flashlight onto the door, the investigators could distinctly see the knob turning and door unlatching again...

Saturday night was great with Kelley and two investigations. The first investigation had some pretty fantastic Ghost Meter Pro, Spirit Box, and Raggedy Ann activity.

When the groups entered the Slave Quarters on this night, they had a pretty chilling moment right away. Their Spirit Box had been quiet as they moved from hot spot to hot spot, but as soon as they entered the Slave Quarters there was distinct, and terrifying screaming coming from the device. This was followed by the word "Help." "Who needs help", one investigator asked. "Carl" was the reply.

In the Gribble House, they had some really good Question and Answer time. They heard quite a few "Help"s come through here, as well, so one investigator asked "Why do you need help". "Can't... captain... the ship" came through. Another investigator asked "What year is it", and they heard "20...16" as the response. Pretty neat.

The second investigation went pretty great, as well. One of the groups that investigated were a mother and daughter pair. The mom had investigated with us three years ago, but her daughter was too young then. Although Mom was a repeat investigator, it seems as though Paul wasn't that happy to see her. She had made contact with a spirit named Michael the last time she was here, but he did not contact her last night. Instead, she had Paul and Joe talking to her and her daughter throughout the night. Paul called her some pretty insensitive names, including Witch, and Bitch, and even told the two of them to "Piss off". However, another male spirit was more polite. When the daughter said "Thank you" after receiving a response, through the Spirit Box they heard "Sweet".

There was one particular female voice that both groups heard all over the building during the second investigation. It was distinct, but kept saying the same word over and over- "Purse".

The other group who investigated with us that night had one investigator, Tom, who heard his name called through the Ghost Box in several areas of the building. When they asked who they were speaking to, they heard the names Steve, Michael, Joe, and Rita. They also heard someone call out "I'm nuts" through the Spirit Box.

It was a great week for us, and everyone who came and investigated the Gribble House with us. If you've got anything you'd like to share, from audio to photos, please do so. Tag us with the @gribblehouse or #gribblehouse, or send it direct!
