Investigation Update 12.19.2017

It was a strange week in Savannah- the weather went from frigid to temperate in the span of seven days. We are looking at a muggy and humid Christmas here in the Low Country. But all the action in the Gribble House has been hot, hot, hot! Here's just a taste of what we've been collecting...

Willie was our lead investigator on Tuesday night with a big group of folks- one couple and a party of thirteen! All thirteen were in the Gribble House to unwind after a long day of meetings but absolutely refused to tell Willie where they worked- each and every one of them! This ended up being a joke all night long between the entire investigating party.

The main piece of equipment that was buzzing away that night was the REM Pod. Willie was deep into explaining how the Pod works and ask soon as he started to discuss the Gate and how active it is, he set the device down and turned it on. As soon as the on button was switched the device started to flash away! The REM Pod continued to go off for the rest of the night.

In addition to the REM Pod being active, the Spirit Box was especially chatty when the investigators asked who they were speaking to. Two names came through loud and clear- Carol and Steve.

On Friday night, Kelley took over as the lead investigator with a pair of folks who were really super into their investigation. Sasha, of the couple, said that he felt touched right from the start of the night, as they were watching the history video out in the building. By far, the Spirit Box was the most active piece of equipment that night with strange soft phrases coming through, but even more clear were attempts at full sentences.

The investigators had a really cool exchange through the Spirit Box. They asked "Where are you" and heard "Right behind you". "Can you see me", "Yes" was the reply. "If you want us to leave, then make the red light flicker again". The sarcastic remark they heard in return was "You won't leave".

The sarcastic remarks continued on through the night. The investigators asked "Do you want us to leave or stay here and help you" and they heard "Won't help us".

Investigation Update 12.11.2017

Last week was really a great one for us in the Gribble House. Now that the weather has turned just a little bit cooler, the building is really buzzing with activity and it's super comfortable to be in the space.

Ted started our week off on Tuesday night with a group of ladies who were in town from Delaware on a business trip. Everyone was really excited to get started because although they were all fans of the Ghost Adventures show and the like, this was their first real investigation.

The night started at the Stage Area where the ladies were able to make good contact with several different spirits just by asking their names. They heard the name "Veronica" come through, followed by "Larry" both in their respective gendered voices. Then they heard the small and petite voices of children come through, saying "Hi" and "Hey". When they moved to the Slave Quarters, they heard the word "Clap" come through, so the investigators clapped their hands". "Clap again", they heard next.

It was in the Residual Area that some of the coolest activity happened. All of the investigators heard what sounded like a chain rattle outside the door, so Ted went to go investigate and see what was happening. While he was gone, the ladies saw"Chain... door" come through the Ovilus. Then they saw the word "Travel" come up, followed by "Award" which was great, because the ladies work for a travel company and had won an award the night prior.

On Wednesday night, one of our favorite couples came to investigate with us again- the Powell's- who were there celebrating their third anniversary. The other couple joining them were the McCoy's, who had heard about the Gribble House from our episode of Ghost Adventures. They were in Savannah experiencing the paranormal and planned on going to the Sorrel- Weed House the next night!

There were some really odd noises and sounds in the building that evening, including the always unsettling whispers through the Ghost Box. That always seems to set investigators on edge. A little bit more demanding and urgent was the sound of banging on the wood above the equipment room, sounding like it was coming from upstairs.

Perhaps the best conversation of the night came in the Slave Quarters, when one of the investigators asked "What happened?". The reply they heard was "We died". "Are you still here", "You bet I'm here, sir, talking to you" was the very sassy reply. "We're going to leave now" followed by "Don't leave... stay". Just a few moments later, a chair that was set up behind the Powell's moved on it's own and could be heard in their audio recording. It seemed almost like a spirit in the Slave Quarters decided to get up and leave.

Ted took over again on Friday night with a couple and a family of three who were also super excited to be in the building with us. The space had a really strange vibe to it- almost like there was more energy than usually buzzing around. Some of the folks investigating with us even commented on it, never being inside the building before.

There was some pretty neat stuff going on at the Stage Area with the Spirit Box and K-II Meter combined. One of the investigators said "Do you have enough energy to light up the chair" and they heard "Yeah" just as the K-II Meter started to flash. Just at the same time on the Ovilus they read "Chair, Middle, Watch" come up on the screen. One of the guests was also holding the Raggedy Ann doll as she was flashing. She said "If you are a man, can you light up the doll" and nothing happened. When they asked "If you are a women light up the doll", Raggedy Ann started to light up.

Finally, on Saturday night, we had some really awesome Spirit Box sessions all over the Gribble House building. Some of it seemed like random chatter, hearing things such as "Lifeless in death", "Ship's not here", "Help Ann", "Are you the such... hellboy", and "What the f*ck". However, the most interesting exchange happened when Kelley heard on the audio "Want to do coke", which was followed by saxophone music and the words "Sexy".

There was some really strange stuff going on with the Spirit Box, where one of the ladies investigating said the word "Usually' which was followed by almost absolutely immediately "Usually" coming through the Spirit Box in her same voice. This also happened with the word "Light" and "Nerds".

Many, many names came through with them hearing names such as Chuck, Linda, Eddy, Joe, Pat, Eric, Sally, Ann, and Devil.

Investigation Update 11.13.17

It has been one interesting week for us! For most of the week, the upcoming film Killerman, featuring Liam Hemsworth, was taping in the building and even turned us into a set of offices- take a look at the Saturday night report to see some images! But this has been a great week in the building, regardless. Here's what's happening-

Kelley was the lead investigator on Wednesday night with two self-admitted skeptics who ended up being incredibly engaged in the investigation. Throughout the course of the night the investigators made contact with spirits in Spanish, German, and French in different areas of the building. In addition to the non-English words being spoken, there were certain words that kept coming through no matter where the investigators were. They unfortunately heard the "N" word come through, but the investigators also heard the number "Two".

At one point the investigators could hear the sounds of children speaking so they asked "Oh, there's kids here? How old are you". Through the Spirit Box they heard a deep man's voice reply "She's five". They never did seem to make contact with any children. However, they did hear that same man's voice come through again. They said "Please stay here, do not follow us home" and heard the eerie reply "Follow her home".

In the Slave Quarters, Kelley set up the blue Motion Sensor and the entire time they were in that hot spot the device went off again and again.

On Saturday night Ted and Kaitlyn were the leads through two awesome investigations. When they came into the building that night they got the awesome surprise of seeing some of the set stages for the Killerman filming.

One of the groups with them that evening had been in the Gribble House several times before so they got the opportunity to go into the building during the History Portion of the night with the other investigators learned the past of the Gribble House.

This evening was marked by some really crazy activity on the K-II Meters, REM Pod, Ghost Meter Pro, and any of the devices that capture energy spikes. This was happening all over the building- Kaitlyn described it as "The equipment is going freaking crazy tonight", so it was incredibly active. But the Spirit Box was not quiet, either. While in the Slave Quarters, a slave they made contact with told the investigators that he had a wife but that he "Didn't miss her".

There was a good bit of physical activity that night, too. One of the groups investigating saw the distinct figure of a black shadow man in their peripheral vision and when they turned quickly to get a better look at him, everyone heard the sound of a pebble being tossed and landing on the concrete. So strange.

The second investigation had a group of three who were pretty new to paranormal investigations but who were super excited to get going in the building and to learn the history behind the Gribble House and just why we do the investigations every night.

All around the building were strange noises and interesting activity that was coming through physically around the investigators rather than through the devices. On this night there were several bangs on the doors around the building, almost constantly, but there was absolutely no wind outside that night. It also sounded like someone or something was shuffling around, dragging their feet, across the wide open parts of the building.

When the investigators moved into the Slave Quarters there seemed to be a lot of personal words and phrases coming through the device. The investigators asked "Do you know us" and they heard "Court..nee" come through- the investigators' name that night was Courtney. They asked "What happened in this area" followed by the reply "Slave".

Finally, Kelley took over again on Sunday night for our last investigation of the week. On this night, two of the four folks investigating with us had been in the building before and were ready and raring to get back into the space. The repeat visitors and the two new folks to the space were subject to some of the most eerie noises that happen in the Gribble House- the sounds of what appears to be people moving around upstairs in the area that is locked off and not able to be accessed. It sounded as though someone was walking around upstairs, making the wooden floors creak and crack just about the Slave Quarters and near the Residual Area.

At the Stage Area, the really strange activity continued as the investigators noticed that there seemed to be really creepy whispers coming through underneath their regular responses on the Spirit Box in a woman's voice. In addition to the unsettling whispers, one of the ladies investigating felt her entire metal chair vibrate as she was sitting in it.

The creepy vibe and activity continued through each and every hot spot that night. In the Slave Quarters the investigators heard the phrase "Touch neck hair" come through the Spirit Box as one of the ladies felt the hair on the back of her neck rise...

Investigation Update 11.6.2017

What a fantastic week we just had in Savannah. The weather could not have been more beautiful for Rock and Roll Marathon weekend in town and the place was buzzing with activity- and so was the building!

Here is a little bit of what we collected-

Willie was the lead investigator for the first two investigations of the week, starting on Sunday night. Unlike almost every single night that Willie works, on this night the REM Pod was absolutely silent and did not make a peep the entire evening, which was very strange. But was even stranger was the temperature of the building. Although it was kind of cold outside the building was warm, but the warmest room of the building was the Slave Quarters. Anyone who had been in the Gribble House before would realize this is really odd because the Slave Quarters is always the lowest temperature of the building.

On this evening the investigators spoke with Nick, who they had heard from the week before. The last time they had heard from Nick he told them he was married to a Carol but did not love her, although Nick told him that they Carol was with her. On this evening, Nick was with a Harriet instead.

Willie took over again on Tuesday night- Halloween. Everyone seemed really excited to get going in the building and to get some action. Again, the REM Pod was silent throughout the night but that didn't stop the strange smells and noises that were happening that night. The Gribble House hot spot had the most strange smell that has ever come through in that area- like a hamster cage. That scent continued throughout the night and didn't see to dissipate at all- at least to Willie it didn't. The other investigators could only smell flowers and leaves but it didn't smell like that at all to our lead investigator.

Two of the folks investigating that night were touched in the building. One of them was fairly violently when the back of his shirt was pulled in the Gribble House area. When he turned around he noticed that he was only a foot away from the wall he was standing next to. The other person who was touched felt pressure on her butt. She thought that it was her purse moving as she walked but her purse was pulled around to the front of her body. So strange...

For Friday and Saturday night, Kelley was the lead investigator. Friday night was a fantastic evening with lots of activity. One of the groups that investigated were a bridal party celebrating in Savannah for the weekend and the other group had been inside the Gribble House before- both of the groups were super pumped up to be in the building with us.

The biggest defining feature of the night was the massive amount of EMF activity that happened at the Stage Area, Residual Area, and the Gribble House area. Usually it's the Slave Quarters with the most EMF action, but it seemed to be spread across the entire building on this night. They asked the spirits to make the Raggedy Ann doll to light up as much as possible while in the Residual Area and she started to flash violently. They asked "Are there children in this room right now" and they heard "Four" in the voice of a child.

There were a lot of phrases that came through the Spirit Box that seemed to have nothing to do with the questions they were asking. They heard "Open, is it", "You're a rookie, aren't ya", "We'll leave" and "Please stand up".

Saturday night had Kelley again as the lead investigator and everyone had the opportunity to use the Raggedy Ann doll, the Boo Bear, the Ovilus, and the MEL Meter throughout the course of the night which added to their experience. There seemed to be a little girl who was following the groups around talking to them the entire evening.

In addition to the child who's voice kept coming through they also heard one voice that came through over and over again. This voice said "White", "Whore", "Ass", "Dick", "F*ck no", "Sluts... three". These were not very nice phrases they heard. They heard the voice say "Soap" so the investigators asked "You die from choking on soap" to which they heard the response of "Dick".

Finally, Willie was the lead investigator on Sunday night with a father, daughter, and her friend investigating. Although there was no REM Pod action again on this night, the Spirit Box was responding as soon as Willie turned on the device, even up front in the Safe Room. But, it seemed like the Slave Quarters were the most active spot of the building.

The SB-7 was super active in the Slave Quarters with some fantastic action coming out. They heard a spirit come through with a feminine voice who told them her name was Carol. Carol kept trying to come through the device and the investigators were trying to make contact with her but it seemed like the male spirits in the room were not allowing her to make contact. The investigators tried over and over for about ten minutes to make a break through but they never were able to get her to make recontact.
