Investigation - Lowville Home
Date: 2/21/09
Location: Lowville, NY
Evidence Found: Male Whisper
Female Laughing (faint)
Audio: Object Sliding
Male Whisper 2
Whistling

Comments: The team was called in by request to a home in Lowville NY, also known as New Brenan. The two towns intersect on more than one area, making the border between these towns difficult to map out. The house itself resides near this border. While the request was for a homeowner, this case actually consisted of two parts; an old 1800's farmhouse home and an even older blacksmith barn. The barn itself was quite massive in size, and is as large or larger than the home itself. This created a double-investigation size for a home. What made things more difficult, is weather was against us that night with snow and cold temperatures picking up as well as having a limited staff due to the flu.

Even with these difficult conditions, we were able to progress through and investigate both areas. The first up was the massive barn. Power was brought into the barn through 100 foot extension cords and security DVR cameras were setup in both floors. Right from the start, some unusual activity was picking up as some unknown EMF fluctuations. This was at first extremely interesting, as the barn had no natural power source going into the area. Further debunking of this would be needed. The barn itself had the original blacksmith shop in the back, with further work areas in the front and second floor of the barn. Past investigators who have been to this area may have collected some EVP's with a German voice and accent. Historical research has backed this claim up by learning that many German blacksmiths did move into this town.

Moving into the main home where apparitions of females and shadows have been seen, activity seemed to pick up as we approached the upstairs. While walking down a hall, there was nothing on the ground. After around 10 minutes, when returning to the same hall, some papers had appeared on the ground. Unfortunately, no video recorded this movement, so exactly how they fell remained unknown. Due to this, a MiniDV was placed to re-capture this evidence; no further activity continued on video. As we approached one room, a strong rotten egg odor was emitted. The source of this smell was completely unknown. Rotten egg is often attributed to a strong sulfur emission. Sulfur has been known to be paired with paranormal activity as a phantom smell. However, sulfur has also been found in old floorboards, insulations, and other materials, especially from 150+ years ago. This gaseous smell could be released to create similar effects to high EMF, such as nausea and headaches. To that end, an additional very high base EMF was found in that room; around a 3.0-5.0 milligauus. This only occurred in this one room, and appeared to be coming from downstairs. An exact reasoning of why this high EMF occurs is unknown, but most likely has to do with a pipe or major wire system between floors. As investigators further investigated upstairs, a loud whisper was heard by an investigator. This whisper was caught on audio as well.

After analyzing all the evidence, a plethora of audio came out of this. This audio was everything from a female laughing in the barn (when no females were present), to phantom whistling, even an object movement caught only on audio when no investigators were present. Due to all of this, we have decided a re-investigator would be prudent to re-capture more of this evidence, and possible gain some video evidence as well.

Evidence Found:
Unknown Fading Light
Male "Now I'm gonna get it"
Female "Help"
Comments: The team went back to this case based on the large amount of personal experiences and data collected from the previous case. We were interested in both trying to find natural causes for the data we collected and also trying to find additional data to support the paranormal claims. We utilized additional tools such as thermal imaging camera in order to find evidence of any animals that could have made noises in the barn area as well as using new camera angles to capture additional video. We also used stationary MiniDV and Hi-8 videos placed in key locations around the case to capture any video evidence.

While the case yielded less personal experiences this time around, we were able to capture additional data. One piece of data is a video caught on a stationary MiniDV in the barn area. This showed an unknown light that appeared briefly from the corner of an open door and disappear. Car lights and flashlights were ruled out due to no reflection in any other part of the room, no light trails on any other object in the room, and no car engine was heard. This light did appear in an area that had previous activity in it. We also gained two additional EVP clips from both inside the house and in the barn area.

Combining all of the data received and experiences, we were able to provide brief explanations into natural occurrences in the home and barn, but far too many questions were left unanswered. It is with our opinion that there is an Moderate amount of paranormal activity that occurs in both the home and adjacent barn area. To the extent of who the activity belongs to and what type of activity it is remains unknown. The best answer lies in continuing to capture data from this area and research more history in the area to separate truth from fiction.
