Investigation Update 4.30.2017

Tomorrow is the first day of May, can you believe it!? This year has absolutely flown by so far and we have enjoyed each and every investigation so far, including this past weeks'! Here is a little bit of what has been happening...

Willie took control of the first three investigations of the week- Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday nights. On Monday he investigated with just one lady who had originally come with her family but were all to scared to investigate with us. The lady, on the other hand, specifically wanted to come investigate in the Gribble House because of the wide range of equipment we offer for use! And that equipment didn't let her or Willie down.

At first, it seemed like the REM Pod might be quiet all night long. It was silent during the history portion but while Willie and she were walking through the hot spots they could hear the device going off. When the two of them walked over and stood in front of it, the REM Pod was quiet again- that is, until she started to talk and ask questions. Then the device really started lighting up and was cooperating with her questions for more than ten minutes.

Throughout the rest of the night, the REM Pod was by far the most active piece of equipment in the building. The two of them never even entered the Slave Quarters because it was so active! The two of them eventually made contact with Mike, Tom, Jim, and a Dave.

When Monday came around, Willie took the reins again. On this night he was accompanied by a couple who were both excited and nervous. The man had previous experiences with the paranormal, and the both of them were very familiar all the equipment we use.

There was a very strange light in the Slave Quarters when the investigators went out to initially watch the history video. There was what almost appeared to be a man made light in the space that was hovering over the table in the Slave Quarters and when the went to move towards it, it started to move away! It was exceptionally strange and they were completely unable to debunk or explain what it was.

The strange light phenomenon continued even after the investigation was officially over! The investigators were up front in the Safe Room and the lady noticed that one of the flashlight had popped on. When the looked over, one of the flashlights they hadn't used was indeed turned on and then it cut off. This happened several times before it finally ceased.

Tuesday had Willie again as the lead investigator, and much like Monday night there was a strange light in the building. The REM Pod was going crazy when the investigation started and they noticed that there was a light shining off of the Stage Area this time. So strange...

Much like Monday night, the REM Pod was out of control active. It was flashing almost all night long indicating both action and temperature changes. In addition to the all-night-long REM Pod action, the investigators made contact with one particular spirit throughout the course of the night- Dennis.

On Thursday night Kaitlyn was the lead investigator with a mother/ daughter pairing who were super extremely excited to get started. They were so excited in fact that they turned the Spirit Box on before they entered the building and were still in the Safe Room. They were getting so many responses, especially names like William, Tate, Paul, Steve, Robbins, Bea, and more.

The Spirit Box action continued when they entered the Gribble House proper. The first name they heard when entering was Liam, followed by Steve. Although they heard many different names, they also heard their own names come through the Spirit Box on command. Very cool!

Eventually the investigators moved into the Gribble House area because they saw what looked sort of like the figure of a man standing in the shadows of the doorway. But no matter who many times they moved into the different hot spots, the investigators kept heading into the center of the building because there were so many different noises happening. The Raggedy Ann doll was lighting up pretty well when they did go into the Slave Quarters, but something very strange happened in there. One of the investigators said that they physically could not go into the corner of the room where the grate is.

Kelley was the lead investigator on Friday night with two ladies were prepped and ready for a good time! On this night, both the EMF Detector on the Spirit Box were super active. There were so many names being called through the Spirit Box such as Richard, Millie, Mamie, Jannie, Ann, Jacob, Stewart, Jim, Paul, Jesse, Eisenhower, and many more.

The name Eisenhower came through after a string of questions. The investigators asked "What year it is" and they heard "1954". Then they asked "Who is the President" and the reply they heard was "Eisenhower" which is amazing since Eisenhower was president between 1953 and 1961. Then they asked "Who's this" and they heard "Green", which was the last name of the investigators.

It was a pretty creepy night overall. The investigators asked "What happened to the ladies here" and they heard "I was raped" come through in a woman's voice. Many of the replies they heard through the Spirit Box gave the investigators chills...

Finally, Kaitlyn and Kelley were again the lead investigators on Saturday night. It seemed like the activity in the building centered around a lot of the activity that would surround a child. The Raggedy Ann Doll was flashing a lot, and the investigators were making contact with the voices of many child spirits.

This happened quite a bit in the Slave Quarters where the Raggedy Ann doll was flashing on command, especially when she was sitting in one of the many folding chairs. When they asked "Are there any children in this room" and they heard "Six" come through the Spirit Box. There also seemed to be a lot of more physical activity going on in the second story of the building where there were no investigators. It sounded as if someone had knocked on the second story window above the CCTV screen, and as though many people were running around in the locked room upstairs.

One of the strangest moments of the night was when some of the investigators were in the Gribble House at the end of the evening. They were getting ready to leave the building and head back into the Safe Room when one of the investigators said "Goodnight, Maggie". Almost immediately they heard a loud and angry "NOO" called through the Spirit Box.

Investigation Update 4.23.2017

What a really great week we just had in the Gribble House! So many good investigations to share with you, so here we go!

Sunday night had Willie as it's lead investigator. Even before the official investigation began while Willie was telling and showing the history of the building, the investigators noticed that there seemed to be a huge amount of orbs floating around the space. They could see them on the CCTV camera and in the photos that they were taking, which is always a cool thing.

On this night the Stage Area seemed to be the most active hot spot. The EMF activity was out of control with it going of with or without the investigators standing nearby. Even though they were never able to get a name out of the spirits they were conversing with, the conversation was pretty good. For the most part, the best luck they have with their questions were yes or no inquiries.

It was while the investigators were grouped in the Stage Area that they noticed something strange on the CCTV camera. It was in the Slave Quarters that they could see a bright white almost incandescent orb floating straight over the table. It was easy to see on the cameras and so bright that they the investigators walked into the Slave Quarters to see if they could actually visualize it. While they were standing in the space, the other investigators looking at the cameras noticed that the orb would stop moving, but as soon as they left the hot spot it would start moving again. Crazy.

Ted took over as lead investigator on Tuesday evening. He investigated with a couple from Pennsylvania who had done a ton of paranormal investigating all over the country before coming into the Gribble House. They came super prepared with their own equipment to use and were very excited.

The Slave Quarters had a really strange feeling to it. In fact, the man investigating that night with Ted felt so heavy that he had to leave the room. Everywhere else in the building didn't have a real affect on his person but when he entered the Slave Quarters he felt like he couldn't move around and was overcome with an uncomfortable heavy feeling. Ted said "I'm going to take a quick picture" and they heard through the Ghost Box a loud and clear "NO". They did get a silly response through the Spirit Box when they asked "What type of animal is in the chimney" and they heard "Penguin".

While in the Gribble House the investigators had two very strange moments. They could see what looked like two shadow figures moving around in the caged area. A few minutes later they heard a disembodied voice, that of a child, say something they couldn't understand. The voice definitely didn't come from the Spirit Box.

Wednesday night had Kelley as the lead investigator. She investigated that night with four women who came into the building as full believers who even had a picture to share with her. Earlier that day they had been at the beach and snapped a picture at dawn of an orb that was bright white with light emanating from it and looking like it had wings. Very compelling!

The building had a really creepy vibe to it on this night that was marked by chills and lots of strange EMF activity. At first the investigators heard a lot of "Get outs" and "Leaves" when they first entered, but those lessened as the night when on. In addition as they started the investigation they also only received "No" as their only responses through the Spirit Box. However, this also changed as the investigated more and the ladies started to get more and more direct answers.

Many of the replies they heard through the Spirit Box was very interesting and poignant. When they asked "How did you die" they heard "Arrow... pain". "Who did you fight with" they asked. "The English" came the reply. Then when they asked "Where should we go" the reply was "Church". In addition to the full and clear responses that they heard, in the background were some creepy but clear replies. They heard "They've been sick", "Help", "You're and angel" and "Three are dead". What may have affected the ladies investigating the most though was each time they heard "Mom" come through the Spirit Box. One of the ladies that night had lost her son, and so hearing "Mom" was quite special to her.

Ted was our lead investigator on Friday night with a group of nine who were just about as excited to investigate as those on the night prior. Some of them were so excited to come in that they prepped themselves to come in by watching episodes of Ghost Adventures.

The Stage Area had some really good action with the EMF Detector. They asked "Can you make the device turn red" and although they heard "Trying" the K-II Meter flashed to red several times on command. This activity continued in the Slave Quarters with the Raggedy Ann doll, which started flashing on command each time they asked. The investigators were even able to get the Raggedy Ann doll and the EMF Detector to sync up together and they started flashing at the same time.

The K-II Meter continued to flash while sitting in an empty chair when the investigators moved into the Residual Area. The investigators heard a loud knocking coming from behind the curtain and before they were even able to ask about it they heard "Knock" come through the Spirit Box. "Are you playing games with us" the investigators asked, to which they heard a sheepish "Shit". They decided to move the K-II Meter over to near the curtains and at this point the device started to flash wildly. Around this time, one of the investigators who was looking out into the middle of the warehouse could see a figure moving around. Crazy.

Finally, Kaitlyn was our lead investigator on Saturday night with Kelley, too. Before the investigation began, Kelley and Kaitlyn had been talking about a former lead investigator and through the course of the night they heard her name being called through the Spirit Box.

By far one of the craziest things to happen this week was in the Slave Quarters with the Raggedy Ann doll that night. One of the investigators asked the spirit they were talking to if they could make the Doll move while she was sitting on one of the metal folding chairs. After they asked, Raggedy Ann fell backwards off the chair all while she was flashing like mad. Using the Digital Thermometer the investigators were able to document some fairly severe temperature drops around her, as well.

A similar thing happened later in the Gribble House area when one of the investigators set their phone up in an upright position on another folding chair. They asked "Knock the phone over if you have enough energy" and at the same time the Ghost Meter Pro flashed once for yes and their phone tipped over.

Over all, a really great week for us and our investigators! If you have anything to share with us, please tag us with the @gribblehouse or #gribblehouse. See you next week!

Investigation Update 4.16.2017

Happy Easter to everyone! We had a really great week in the building, so without further ado, here is a little bit of what took place in the building.

Willie was our lead investigator on Monday night with a pair of ladies who were quite excited to be in the building and having a true paranormal experience. The mother of the pair was extremely well versed in the paranormal and the daughter was very much in tune with what was happening with the Spirit Box.

There was decent activity that night, but the most active piece of equipment was the Ghost Box. All of the questions that the ladies had to ask that night were answered promptly and intelligently- which is always a bonus!

Ted took over as the lead investigator on Wednesday night with a couple named Jake and Kristen. They were also very excited to be at the Gribble House and had a lot of really good activity swirling around them, including a lot of orbs in their photos around them. It didn't seem like the spirits liked to have their pictures taken, though, because on a few occasions Ted took a few photos and they all heard "Quit it" and "Leave" come through the Spirit Box.

When the investigators moved into the Stage Area they asked "Is somebody here" to which they heard "Yes". "What is your name" they asked. "Tod" was the reply. When they asked Tod "What is your favorite food", they heard the intelligent reply of "Lunch".

When it came time for those investigators to move into the Slave Quarters it sounded like someone slammed close the storage room door. When Ted walked over to investigate what was happening, he noticed that the curtain at the front of the building was wide open. He went back to show the investigators what had happened when three loud bangs came again from the storage area. So creepy!

Kaitlyn was our lead investigator on Thursday evening with guests who were so excited to get started that they all arrived early! Some of the folks in the group that night were real pros and came with their own equipment, including video recorders and a MEL Meter. Very cool.

There were some really interesting moments at the Stage Area when the guests had moved into that area. The Ghost Meter Pros were going out of control, almost acting like they were on the fritz. The lights were flashing out of control and frizzing from one end of the color spectrum to the other. Just around this time the investigators started to feel like there was a cool breeze swirling around them and among them, which was really cool. Just before it was time to move to another area the most disturbing and dead voice come through the Spirit Box. They couldn't tell what it was trying to say but it left them all feeling uncomfortable.

One of the ladies investigating that night was a sensitive and could hear extraneous voices throughout the building and in different areas from where she was stationed. While in the Gribble House area, she said she could hear a voice coming from the Residual Area.

Again on Friday night, Ted took over as the lead investigator on another evening with super excited guests. One thing the investigators noticed that night was a lot of the verbiage coming through the Spirit Box wasn't exactly inviting. When they greeted the building by saying "Happy Easter", the reply they heard was "Get out". Although they were getting a lot of replies, most of the replies were dismissive, "Please tell us your name" they asked, to which they heard "I should".

When in the Gribble House Area, the investigators made contact with many of the names associated with the Gribble House murders. They heard both Carrie and Eliza in this area, but when they asked if they were scared they heard a derogatory "F*ck you" as the reply.

Then in the Residual Area, it almost sounded as if someone was drowning or suffocating by the words coming through the Spirit Box. They heard both "Help" and "Blue" come through back to back...

Our Saturday night was very busy for Kelley as the lead investigator with with really big tours! During the first the investigators got to experience a ton of EMF activity all over the building, with both the Ghost Meter Pro and the Raggedy Ann Doll flashing all over the place. In addition, they heard some words come through over and over all night, which included "Run" and "Hide", which made the investigators feel like a child wanted to play Hide and Seek, and the names Steve and Paul. Some of the investigators heard their names called- both Debbie and Robert, as well as Carol and Katie.

One of the most uncomfortable and disturbing conversations that has been recorded in the Gribble House took place in the Slave Quarters that night. One of the groups heard a man's voice say that he had "Raped" a woman while in that room, which was quickly followed by the words "Stuck" and "Escaped women". When they asked "How many women did you rape" they heard "Couple" come through the Spirit Box, followed by Female coming up on the Ovilus screen.

Kelley and the investigators both heard and saw the word Orange come up on the Ovilus screen and called through the Spirit Box. This was a first for Kelley- she had never heard or seen it in the building before.

The second investigation that night was just as good. Just like the first investigation, this tour saw a huge amount of EMF activity all over the building, as well as really good Raggedy Ann activity and an active Ovilus. The Ovilus even had several full phrases come up on the screen, including 15 Souls, Look Around, I'm Right Here, We're Stuck, Still Here, and We're Many.

It seemed like the male spirits in the building were trying to flirt with the women investigating that night. They heard "Sweets" and "Pretty Hot" come through a few times. But, they also heard some rather negative language come through, hearing "Asshole", and "Mean".

There was some really fantastic EMF activity at the Stage Area while the Raggedy Ann was flashing. When they asked "Who is making that light flash in the chair" they heard "Ann" come through as the reply. When they asked "Do you need help" they reply was "Of course not".

All in all, a fantastic week! If you have anything to share with us, please tag us with the @gribblehouse or #gribblehouse so we can see!
