Client married him 12 years ago and the activity started for her and her child immediately.  Daughter was 8 at the time.

Location:  Trinity Ave., Spfld
Time:  6:30
Weather:  Clear & Cool
Investigators:  Roberta V.H., Rhonda J., Karen C.
My Equipment:  KII EMF Meter, (2) Digital Recorders, Digital Camera & Digital Video Camera

Type of Activity:  The client, her daughter and a friend of the daughter's have been experiencing things for a while now.  Such as seeing an apparition of a man, getting 3 scratches in a row on there legs, pinch markings, items in home would disappear then reappear, and then they noticed these tiny magnets spelled out "Die & Evil" placed on a stuffed bear that belonged to the daughter's baby. They don't know where the magnets came from. They think that this activity likes to follow the daughters friend in the basement.  

My Findings: I placed 1 of my recorders in the basement, and the 2nd recorder placed in the front room.  My digital video was placed in the basement. Out of all my equipment listed above I didn't get anything. 

My Conclusion:  Even though I didn't get any evidence doesn't mean that there's nothing paranormal going on.  As we know these spirits have a mind of their own.  They or it just didn't want to come out and play.

Equipment Used:


Solar X-rays:  Unsettled

Geomagnetic Field:  Storm


Moon Phase:  Waxing Crescent


I had positioned my recorders in the office and in the basement.  It was a very quiet investigation with the only notable event being when we were sitting in the basement.  It appeared the light upstairs increased as if another light was turned on and then dimmed after we requested the light be turned off. 


We could not use our equipment due to the extremely high electrical readings which leads me to believe SOME of the feeling of being watched or close is do to high EMF readings.  It can cause this and other ailments as well.
