Comments:The team traveled to Deep River Connecticut to investigate claims in a very old library. Originally the library was a home built by a man named Richard Spencer in 1881. The home was eventually donated in the early 1900's as a gift to the town and became a perfect spot for the library, which was in need of a location. In 1933, the home was officially converted into the Deep River Library. Over the years, there has been reports of paranormal activity. Most of these claims point back to a female apparition, as there are claims of female murmuring, laughing, even a female apparition has been seen. There have also been reports of footsteps and other noises.

As the library was larger than 10,000 square feet, we decided to go with a larger DVR and audio setup, and used 12 DVR cameras with 10 audio devices to effectively cover the entire library. We decided to switch teams by having two teams of mixed males and females, and then two more teams of just all males and all females. This was done in case activity may only occur with one particular gender group, or if mixed.

As with every case, we began to investigate possible natural causes for some of these claims. Some footsteps were heard on the second floor book storage area, so we looked for possible causes. There were multiple windows in this area which had long roof tops that extender to nearby trees. It was possible, and probable, that animals such as squirrels could climb through here and enter the library through small areas and could rustle around to cause noises. This was only one theory, and we did not locate any animals in this area.

Very minor personal experiences occurred in the library, but towards the end of the night one all male investigation team did have their KII meter(s) respond intelligently to a few questions asked, but because it was only accurate 50% of the time, we had to rule this to be thrown out. Going back through data review did reveal some interesting surprises. We captured three different sets of possible EVP responses. Two of these were of a breathy whisper that say No, to two questions asked. The first occurred when an investigator asked if they could go upstairs and a loud prompt "NO" is heard on the recorder, located on the 2nd floor hallway. The second occurred when an investigator asked if it was too late to be in the library, and another fainter No is heard. The most interesting of all occurred when one investigator asked if there was supposed to be a kitchen upstairs on the 2nd floor and downstairs on the 1st floor. When she asks "Is this true" a voice, female, overlaps and says "No, it's not". As this voice was unique, and it would be highly unlikely if this voice was another investigator during an EVP session, we would rule this to be a possible paranormal EVP response. Finally, a less impressive light source was captured on the DVR camera in the 2nd floor book storage area. While brighter, larger, and more unusual than other light sources we've detected, because it appears to be moving slowly down and close to the IR lens, this may be a simple dust particle reflecting a high amount of light back into the lens.

Overall, while our personal experiences were minor, we were impressed with some of the data recovered. We are not yet ready to say there is paranormal activity in the library, but the percentage was greatly increased with the discovery of some responses to questions. We would like to return later to the library to investigate further to see if we can increase or decrease this percentage.
