Investigation Update 7.9.2017

It was a great week- a wonderful holiday week for us! We hope you all enjoyed your mid-week 4th of July because we certainly did! Here's just a little bit of the tons of activity we got in the building this past seven days...

Kelley took over on the 4th of July itself with a couple who were so excited to investigate the Gribble House. The night before they had been in the Sorrel- Weed house and captured some really cool stuff with their Olympus and they were kind enough to share with Kelley the EVPs they had captured. They used their own equipment quite a bit, including their Steve Huff software in the building. Although the equipment was quiet they told Kelley it was because the spirits were trying to manipulate the device rather than it just not being active in the building.

Their main focus that night was to try to get some Straight EVPs using the Spirit Box, although both the Ovilus and the SB-7 were pretty active. One spirit who was particularly active was one who called himself Kevin. The investigators asked him to sing to them and Kevin actually did! The same voice they had been talking to started to sing through the Spirit Box. Amazing!

In addition to all the Spirit Box activity, they also were able to get quite a few names to come through in response to their questions "Who is here with us tonight?". They heard Kelley, Ann, Pete, Mike, Paul, Jim, Bob, Betty, Veronica, Carol, Edmond, Todd, and Jack.

Kaitlin was lead investigator on Thursday night with a pretty big group of folks on an evening when the most dramatic thing that almost every single investigator felt was distinct cold spots and chills in the rather warm building. It's not normal to feel so cold suddenly in a muggy hot building, but this happened all night long for each and every investigator. Crazy!

There were a few really strange moments in the building outside of the deep cold spots. Usually the electro magnetic field that is situated outside of the Slave Quarters near the outlet is fairly small, and you can automatically tell when you are walking into that Hot Spot that the activity is nothing more than the wall plug. However, on this night the EMF that was being produced by that spot was nearly double what it usually it, like something was making it stronger.

One of the groups investigating that night was unfortunately in town for a funeral. Strangely, the name of that family member who had passed kept coming through the Spirit Box all night long...

Kelley and Kaitlyn doubled up on Thursday night for two investigations. The first one started early because everyone was so excited to join in on the paranormal action that they showed up early and ready to go get 'em! It seemed like on this night that the child spirits were exceptionally active. One of the groups made contact with a little boy who called himself Gabe, and was making both the Raggedy Ann doll and the EMF detector light up at the same time, like he was touching it with both hands.

Unlike the night before, rather than the distinct cold spots that the previous investigators experienced, one of the ladies investigating on Thursday night had one of her arms so hot that it was registering more than 10 degrees warmer than the rest of the room! Amazing and so hard to explain.

The same sort of strange activity happened when the investigators moved into the Gribble House area. One of the ladies was holding a Ghost Meter Pro and suddenly felt like someone was holding her arm- like she could even feel the fingers around her forearm. The device she was holding was going off like mad in the hand that felt like there was pressure around...

The second investigation of Friday night was great, as well. This time it was a group of ladies who were greeted almost immediately at the Stage Area by a male voice who told them that they "Looked nice". How kind of him!

Before this investigation began, Kelley was getting the rooms set up and arranged for the tour and she pulled back the curtain in the Slave Quarters and could have sworn that she saw the figure and face of a little boy with strawberry blonde hair staring back at her. She screamed and startled the investigators, which set the tone of the night. It felt like the building was ominous and sort of oppressive.

Kelley heard her entire first and last name come through the Spirit Box that night, something that hadn't happened to her before. It also seemed like when she was asking questions that she wasn't getting answers- in fact she was distinctly told to "Shush" at one point. Crazy!

Finally, Kelley was in charge on Saturday night with a group who had been collecting activity all over Savannah and had even gotten an EVP from a spirit who called himself Tom. When they were in the building they also heard the name Tom come through- the investigators believed it was the same man.

One of the investigators heard her own name come through the Spirit Box- Angela. But they also heard other names such as Angela, Jason, Paul, Dawn, Carried, Tom, and Paul several times. There also seemed to be some phrases that came through that were exceptionally relevant. They heard "Prescription in the bag" followed by "I'm old". The investigators also heard some really unsettling laughter...

Overall, the night was entirely creepy and unsettled. As the investigators looked around the building they saw plenty shadowy figures moving about...

A wonderful week indeed! If you have anything to share, please do! Tag us with the @gribblehouse or #gribblehouse.
