Investigation - Vestal Home
Date: 1/9/09
Location: Vestal, NY
Evidence Found: Child Laughter
Child Voice

Comments: A case located in Vestal NY brought us to a home where claims centered around children who were seeing visual apparitions and feeling uncomfortable in their own home. Due to the fact that most of the claims were experienced by the children, and few by the parents, we sought out to attempt to find natural explanations that would be a factor. Some claims were easily able to dismiss due to reflections off chandeliers, localized abnormal base EMF readings, and natural noises permeating through the home.

However, even with a strong debunking sense in mind, the team did have several unusual experiences that were, for the most part, unexplained. The first of which occurred when a door to the basement opened slightly on its own. Attempting to find natural explanations in terms of air pressure and any fulcrum movement on the hinges turned up empty. Unfortunately no video evidence of this was captured w/lack of a DVR security cam in the area as well as MiniDV not focusing on this area. There was also several strong EMF spikes which registered high on our KII meter, with no apparent source. Spikes can indicate paranormal if no source is found. Some common sources for spikes in a stationary KII are SMS text messages from cell phone, walkie talkie, and other short-burst transmissions. None of these were occurring during the bursts, so it remains unusual. Finally, a localized "cold-spot" was found, where an area contained a significant cooler temperature than the base temperature of the home. However, due to the cold air outside and possibility for a draft, this claim was somewhat dismissed.

After reviewing evidence, two audio clips of significant value contains a child's voice (male or female is undetermined), both laughing and saying the phrase "Can You Talk to Me"? The voice is unique and did not belong to any team-member and the phrase itself would not have been spoken by anyone on the case. An unofficial claim that is currently under verification states that a child did die who lived in the home. Until that claim is verified that is just speculation. However, due to the audio of both of these clips, this may have some merit.

After the minor personal experiences and slight audio EVP's contained, we believe that this home may indeed have paranormal activity. If so, the activity is not very frequent, and most likely a small child, which is probably where the interest lies with the children seeing this figure. It may be the case that the activity may slow down or stop entirely when the children grow up.
