(This investigation took place over several visits from Jan. 20th - March 5th, 2011)
This small home has been used for residential and business purposes. According to the local law enforcement and the reports from the current owner and previous tenants, there have been three suicides and one death from exposure. One suicide was from a gunshot wound to the head. One was from a hanging, and the third is unknown to us at this time. The other death was that of a veteran who had wandered off and got in on the back porch then died from exposure.
There have been numerous reports of activity in the house. Owners, renters, and customers have witnessed objects moving, doors and cupboards banging, and have heard footsteps and banging noises at all hours of the day and night. The lights will get turned on and off, the thermostat gets played with and even furniture has been moved around.
This investigation will take place over an extended period of time and data will be posted as soon as possible regarding the findings we obtain. Please check back often.
Two deaths have been verified by death certificates and/or obituary notices. The original owner of the home died of uremia in 1943 at home, and one suicide by shotgun took place in 2001 in the living room of the house.
Below are a few of the pictures that we obtained over the course of our investigation. We do not tamper or photoshop in anything. What you see is what we got. All we do is lighten/darken, zoom, or try to enhance what is naturally there.
* Please click here to go to the audio gallery where i will be adding the E.V.P's as we get them. (All new e.v.p's will be available below, please check back for updates. Once we get them transferred from the gallery to this page i will be deleting the audio gallery page.)
All images should be able to be enlarged when you click on them. We will try to make sure that you know the date and approximate time they were taken in case the time/date stamp on the camera doesn't work or gets tampered with somehow. Lately it seems anywhere we go someone or something likes to changes the settings while our cameras are in use.
If there is a situation where we want you to see several pictures in consecutive order we will add a number label in one of the corners and additional information describing why they are posted that way when you click to enlarge them.
(Since we realized that using the audio gallery caused the e.v.p's to play one directly after the other we have chosen to post the rest of them here as links so that you can open them up and be able to replay or adjust the volume for easier access.)
(Please remember these are personal experiences and not all can be backed up by evidence obtained)
* We first entered this house on Thursday evening Jan. 20th, 2011. Present were the founders Rae and Chris Hughes with their 12 and 6 yr old daughters, and the owner Dan Ingle and his son. We were there from approx. 6pm to almost 7:30pm.
Right from the start there was a loud pop/bang that sounded as if it came either from the back of the house or the basement. It's not like things just kept happening but the entire time we were there it sounds like faint conversations in the backround on our recorders. Also while in the basement the 12 yr old saw a figure move in the opposite room that we all were in and shortly after the owner saw it also. When Rae went to take pictures something had shut the flash off on the camera so all she got was black pictures.
There was problems with the power not working to one of the back rooms and the basement, and something was moved or shuffled on top of an old heater between where Rae and Dan were standing.
Over the course of three weekends and short visits during the weekdays there have been several other incidences with investigators. One was grabbed while in the basement after he commented "what you'll mess with women not men, come on and make a noise or move something", after he was grabbed he said "I told you to make a noise not grab me". The same night the owners son had something grab his arm like it was trying to get past him in the upstairs hallway. Not to mention the voices, footsteps, and other unexplainable noises that every person who entered the house have heard.
Another unexplainable and unsettling incident occurred with one of our cell phones. On Friday night Feb. 4th the phone made four random calls. This phone was sitting on the table at home base with the buttons locked and the investigators were all together in another area of the house. This is what it dialed :
It was not noticed until the following day that this had happened until looking at the outgoing calls list on the cell phone that these were found. We have many theories and ideas and even have looked at it from math viewpoint but have yet to come to any logical conclusions regarding this.
