Super great week! We had so much fun with our guest investigators we can't wait to share it with you. So, here it is:
Willie started our week off on Sunday as the lead investigator. On this night, one of the couples had activity popping even before they left the Safe Room at the front of the building! It was so active for them that the couple decided to stay in that room for a while to see what all they could capture. The couple ended up making contact with a spirit who told them his name was Dave, and that spirit really took to the Ghost Meter Pro, making it connect and then reconnect which was really cool. Willie decided to put an EMF Detector in the center of the room and Dave made it blink on cue. Awesome!
The other groups made their way out into the building to see what they could find. When the night was ending and the groups were making their way back to the Safe Room, one of the men saw what looked like a shadowy figuring moving about the building.
Ted was the lead investigator on Tuesday night with a family group- a mother, son, and daughter, who were all really excited about being in the building. They are really into the paranormal and watch all of the Ghost Shows. Most of all they were excited to get to use the large array of equipment we have to offer!
As soon as they walked through to the Stage Area they heard "Hello" come through the Ghost Box. They asked "Hi, what is your name" and on this night they heard from Dave again. One of the investigators decided to go towards the middle of the building to get the Raggedy Ann doll and through the Spirit Box they heard "Stop" followed by "Wait". Then, eerily, the Spirit Box called a name of one of the investigators- "Kate".
When the investigators moved to the Residual Area they asked "Can you touch my shoulder". Almost immediately one of the ladies felt her backpack tapped twice in a row. The crazy activity started again when one of the investigators asked "We have several doors for you to knock on, can you knock for us please", to which they heard "Yes" followed by three knocks from the Gribble House area. Crazy!
On Wednesday night, Kelley took over as the lead investigator on an evening when the star of the show was the blue Motion Sensor. She placed one of the devices on the floor facing towards the inside of the gated area. It flashed on and off all night long indicating that movement was happening in the Gribble House gated region. The REM Pod that was put there as well was very active all night long.
There was some really interesting activity with the Spirit Box that night. Many of the investigators' questions got answered with relevant responses. They asked "Is there anyone here", "Lisa". "What is your name", "Lilly". "What is your name", "The chef". "How are you", "Cold". "Do you know what year it is", "The 20s". "Where are you from", "Greenland". "Who is the President of the United States", "Lincoln". "Where are you from", "I'm home". Creepy.
Lots and lots of names called through the Spirit Box, too. They heard Nathan, Steven, Paul, Lucy, Lilly, Elliot, Jim, Olson, Gordon, Stewart, Mark, and Leanne.
Kaitlyn was the lead investigator with three ladies who were investigating the paranormal for the first time. They were very excited to be doing something new. The Stage Area had a lot of really strange activity going on, especially with the Raggedy Ann doll. It didn't seem like much was going on so Kaitlyn went to go take some pictures of the warehouse and see what she could capture. When she got back, the Raggedy Ann doll's hand were flashing like mad each time the investigators asked any questions.
When they moved to the Gribble House area the scent of floral perfume was out of control strong. The aroma was coming in waves, almost as if someone was walking passed them and their perfume followed them around the room. They made contact with a spirit who called himself Nicolai, and it seemed like the perfume scent would get stronger whenever he was speaking to them.
They decided to move to the Residual Area and it seemed like the spirit Nicolai was getting angrier with them- his responses to their questions were getting more and more hostile. While they were in the Gribble House area it felt as though the temperature was getting hotter and hotter and the energy was feeling darker and darker as the air felt heavier and heavier. That's when they decided to leave the area and get some air in the Residual Area.
On Friday night Ted took over again as the lead investigator. The night started for them at the Stage Area and they had some really great luck with the Spirit Box. They asked "Who is here" and heard "People" followed by their question "Why are you here". The response they heard was "Killed". The K-II Meter in the middle of the stage was flashing a constant green light during the time they were getting the great responses.
Just before the investigators moved into the Residual Area, Kelley asked them if they would like to stay in the Slave Quarters for a little while longer. They said no, but they heard "Whimps" come through the Spirit Box. When they moved to the Residual Area, the activity turned very strange. They asked "Is that you in the white dress" and they clearly heard a whispered "Yes". Just after all of them in the building heard the sound of a woman's scream echoing through the building, startling them all, followed by a cold breeze that they all felt. Very unsettling...
That same kind of strange activity continued in the Gribble House area. While the Raggedy Ann doll was flashing the investigators heard a loud slap come from the middle of the building.
Finally, Kelley was our lead investigator on Saturday night. Even before this investigation began, two of the folks on their way to the bathroom heard noises coming from the Residual Area and Kelley noticed that one of the feeds on the CCTV cameras was cycling through all the areas of the building. It was very creepy and unsettling to watch.
One of the things that the investigators mentioned was that the building had a really heavy feeling to it, and that many times they felt like they were being watched- a feeling that made most of them spooked.
