Investigators: Christy, Anita, Melven, Chicky, Chris, Steph, James & Jason
Equipment used: DVR, (5) IR video cameras, personal audio recorders, digital cameras and various EMF meters
This residence is currently occupied by a married couple with children. The current homeowners have lived in the home for the past 7 years and stated that they noticed activity taking place shortly after they moved in and gradually with each passing year the activity has seemed to increase in nature. This 2-Story home is large in size and contains a total of 14 spacious rooms. Upon our first investigation, the homeowners stated that the upstairs part of the home seemed to have the majority of the activity taking place, but then later they noticed that the activity started taking place downstairs as well, especially in the master bedroom.
Finally the strange activity had reached a level where the family quit using and sleeping in the upstairs part of the house. Not too long after this, more strange things began to take place within the home and the homeowners felt like they needed some outside help. They contacted our group, OKPRI. Some of the current experiences in the home include:
Shadows are seen throughout the home.
They have seen apparitions of a woman and a man and something like a dark human shadow that crawled around the floor.
The children of the home stated that they would have horrible nightmares when they slept upstairs in their bed with images that were so frightening that they didn't want to stay upstairs anymore.
They also reported feeling as if someone crawled in to bed with them on several occasions, felt breath on their faces when they slept at night and hear audible voices.
There have been no documented deaths in this home.
This home is fairly new and was built in the 1970's. It has been owned by 3 different families however the land on which this house sits and the surrounding 12 acres was purchased from the government back in 1903 by an individual family before, years later being sold and divided into a housing sub-division.
We visited this home on several occasions and our initial visit resulted in no recorded evidence. The second time that we were there, we were able to record a few light EVP's on our video camera, one says, "Get back" and the other one is Unknown. ( Video Evp's ) At that point in time we felt like whatever was taking place in the home was not easily recorded. The homeowners contacted us again stating that the activity had picked up and had gotten more intense. We agreed to come back out to the residence. Once there conducting the investigation, several investigators stated they felt like the energy in the home had changed and had indeed gotten stronger and so we were hoping that we would be able to get a bit more evidence recorded. It was during this 3rd investigation that we began doing our sweeps and
This is the photograph that was taken right after the investigator felt something go through her on her right side. You can see the mist in the right side of the photo.
This is the comparison shot that was taken right after the photo with the mist in it. This picture is clear and reveals no mist in it.
Our group had a walking camcorder that we kept running during our sweeps. We were in the craft room when our group started asking a few questions. Although our audio recorders captured no EVPs during our investigation at this location, our walking camcorder captured 2 EVPs on film. We have listed this video here below.
When the investigation was completed, there were 2 investigators plus the homeowner still left in the bedroom discussing the night's events when one investigator's camera was knocked hard out of her hand and landed on the floor approximately 5 feet in front of her. While standing in the downstairs living room area, footsteps were heard upstairs running back and forth. We completed our 3rd investigation there and decided that this home had a mild haunting taking place, however we were only able to get a few piece of evidence recorded.
Psychic Investigator’s Comments
I wasn't really sure what to expect when I went to this house. when I stepped through the doors I was struck by the beauty and size of the home and wondered how it was possible for a home like this to have spirits present when it was so nice, however I knew that size and beauty did not stop spirits from inhabiting a location. I received several different images from this home and one in particular that I did not care for. I
had not talked with the homeowner about the details of this investigation until we were through with our first initial investigation. When I walked through the front door, I was drawn to the upstairs part of the home and couldn't wait to get upstairs and check it out. When I got upstairs, I felt a presence that was very heavy. I felt like we had been surrounded and if we were unwelcome. While investigating in one of the bedrooms upstairs, I saw a figure come crawling very quickly towards me. This figure appeared to be human however it was solid black with a white face with little facial details and it crawled on all fours which were slightly bowed and
turned inward. I saw it first standing by the door and then in an instance, it came right up beside the bed where I was standing. I was a bit shocked at how quickly it moved and at its appearance. I wasn't for sure what it was. I was uncomfortable by its presence, but I tried not to show any fear. Then as quickly as it appeared, it was suddenly gone. I later on spoke with the homeowner who was shocked when I told her what I had seen as she stated that they had witnessed the same thing in the house and they were frightened of it because they did not know what it was either. She stated that her daughter was the first one to encounter this entity.
On another one of the other investigations I walked into the master bedroom and saw this woman standing over by the window. I walked over to the window area and felt a change in temperature as the air seemed to become much colder. It was very long and then the cold spot was gone. I felt like this older woman had been showing herself to the homeowner and while conducting an investigation in the master bedroom I got an image of the homeowner sleeping and this woman coming up beside the homeowner waking her up. I asked the homeowner if she had been having dreams about this woman. She stated, 'Yes, she had been having strange dreams about a woman over and over
again. I asked her if this woman appeared to her with a broken neck and she told me yes and that her daughter had also seen this woman with a broken neck as well.
I did not feel like this woman had died in the home and I was unable to find out much about her. We felt like this woman might have been the "crawler entity" changing forms to gain the trust of the family, but we were unable to confirm this. We do know that there was an attempt for communication done in this home by the teenage children years previous to us investigating so we are unsure if this "crawler entity" was brought into the home by this incident or not. All in all this was a very neat little investigation for us and I will never forget the strange entity that we encounter while investigating there.
while in the kitchen area, we had an EMF spike of 4-5mg. We also felt like the activity had centered in the master bedroom of the home so we decided to set up equipment in this room and conduct our sit-down in this room as well.
While investigating this master bedroom, we had a temperature increase of 11 degrees and a couple of quick 5mg spikes. While in this room there were many instances where shadows were seen for brief periods of time and a few of the investigators stated that they felt a bit uncomfortable in the room. One of our investigators was up taking photographs when she felt a wave of "hot energy" pass through her on her right side. She immediately took a photograph and in the photograph was a large sized mist. Another comparison shot was taken resulting in nothing.
