Investigation - West Ten Eyck Street Home
Date: 2/13/09
Location: Watertown, NY
Evidence Found: None.

Comments: This TAPS referred case brought us to Watertown NY, a northern NY state town with a lot of history. This particular case had a mother and son who had experienced activity in the form of massive amounts of object movements. The object movements generally occurred with picture frames knocking down, candles, holiday decorations, walking heard upstairs, etc.

Using a new type of device donated to us for research by KII Enterprises, The Tattle Tale, we were able to detect seismic waves (P and S) that could be generated in the home to detect any object movements. While the tests we conducted with the device were successful, it did not find anything natural or unnatural to cause those object movements. Our data did not find anything paranormal in nature to suggest a paranormal event, but did find some natural causes to support the claims. The first occurred with a CD player opening by itself, thereby knocking a few objects off. We determined that the CD player was an advanced model that had a mechanism for opening itself by use of a remote control. Remote controllers use IR frequencies that allow it to do different functions such as Volume, Channel, and open/close CD tray. Other devices sometimes (although not always), cross the different frequencies to create un-desirable effects to other devices. For example, a TV remote controller could have activated the CD player's functions if it was on the right channel. Furthermore, the TV remote controller was a "universal" remote, which contains a plethora of different frequencies for different TV's, further increasing the chances that this was the case. Other object movements could have been caused by other events, such as loose floor-boards causing creeks, wood expanding and contracting due to hot/cold temperatures, and loose nails allowing pictures to fall off themselves. This was a good case in order to find natural causes to explain basic paranormal claims experienced by homeowners on a daily basis around the country.
