A recent investigation of a downtown Mount Vernon office building revealed some interesting activity.
All three of us (Paul, Carmen and Lori) were sitting in the same room when we heard the sound of an empty water bottle being moved accross the wooden floor. A nearby digital audio recorder captured the event. This movement happened at the opposite end of the hallway, so we did not see it take place,but we all heard it.. A photo of the bottles was taken (as they were found) after the sound was heard.
Later on in the investigation, this sound was captured on our recorders. Not sure what it was, but none of the investigators made that sound.
We decided to use the Ovilus II, an experimental device which contains a list of 2,080 words. Among the words the device emitted was the word mustard. We asked about the possible signifigance of this and we were informed that the walls of one of the offices had indeed been painted a mustard color.
Lori and Paul conducted a flashlight session in the hallway. The flashlights continued to turn on and off during the course of the investigation.
While on a recent short investigation at the Northern State horse stables building, I captured a response to a request. I was attempting to elicit a response by whistling. I did not hear it at the time. The first clip is the unmodified version. The second is just the response, with noise removed and slightly amplified.
Oddly enough, that same night at about 2:30 AM, Lori and the cat were awoken by the sound of someone whistling. (But at 2:30 AM?) She thought it was coming from outside in the street, so she raised the blinds, looked out, and saw no one there.
Weird….. Perhaps the whistling spirit hitched a ride on the way home from the investigation?
Here is an interesting clip. It was recorded back in October during an investigation of a private residence in Bellingham, WA. We were using our “ghost box” which was scanning the AM dial. John asks “Do you know that you’re dead? And that you’re a spirit?” The immediate response appeared to be coming from a person with a hispanic accent. Once you listen to it a couple of times, it becomes strikingly obvious what the person/spirit said:
“Yes, I know.“.
