Jenna and Rae were up in the attic, They felt something hiding in the corner. Went to investigate Batteries in camera died. Changed Batteries. Got a few evps of females . Chris and patric in the basment had gotten a male voice saying I know. Evps starting to come in . Computer in main gallery running at top speed doing a live recording. WE had all felt or heard something in the mansion. The employees decided to go with us on investigation. As the investigation continued strange sounds came from many different places in the house. We heard light taps as we asked questions. This started with intelligence. Jenna and Rae Lee picked up an evp of women talking to one another. Chris and Patrick a male voice that jenna and Rae Lee will pick up again in the basement.

Jenna and rae lee in the basement and chris and Patrick in the attic. Jenna and rae Lee picked up an evp of a male . You can clearly hear a male voice after jenna explains how to use the recorder.
EVP says "help me"
the next evp was in the second floor area where the offices are. We get a little girl saying this on the recorder. You can deffinatly hear a litlle girl say "I miss you." this was in the nursery type room. Same little girl speaks again . This time she is saying "MIne too"
EVP- "i miss you" and "mine too" can be found on Desmoinesparanormal.webs.com site
while up on the second floor of the mansion we had a male voice come from the office area while jenna and Rae were in there with the employees from Hoyt Sherman this is what it happened . The employees were all in the office, we had brought with us a plasma ball to increase the electro static field in the air so they will be able to use the energy to either manifest or talk. While they were in there an employee setting at her desk felt the presence of a man say "move" She immediatly told everyone to move and she sat by the door and does not remember moving. Now she has never done this before according to all the employees and her husband. Jenna felt the same presence in that room.
(evp will be added soon)
Also in the area that was once known as Hoyt Shermans bedroom we also got a horse 'breathing' twice and then a baby crying. Each sound happened after you here Mike talking. Listen closely... Heres the conversation;
"You'd tell me if somethings going on right?"
"Good enough." click
"It seems like it picked up when I said Hoyt...."
Back in the the other room on the second floor which used to be two bedrooms was the distinct vocie of two females. Niether one is jenna or rae. So it was an interesting evp to say the least. You can hear play it safe and how lovely on the evp.
EVP- 'play it safe' and 'how lovely' can be found on Desmoinesparanormal.webs.com site
We have also collected photo evidence of the Mansion and the Theatre. These pictures show what appears to be "orbs" in many of them. Now you must remember that "orbs" tend to produce their own light and also will show a trail (sometimes faint) behind them as they travel and movement is generally not just going down like a dust particle would, but side to side or up or against the wind if there is a breeze. That is why we use "orb" like this because to some these may appear to be just particles of dust while others we are sure aren't.
The infamous age old question comes into play in many of these pictures: Is it an orb or is it dust? With each picture we have posted I will try to let you know what you are looking for in it.
Also it may seem as though some are repeats. This happens when you have more than one camera and more than one team. We all took pictures of the different areas we went. But in some instances we were able to catch the same phenomena in a certain area by teams that were there at different times.
Once again we must stress the importance of not trying to set up more investigations. At this time the Board of Directors is content with this one investigation and asks all other teams out there to respect their wishes.
