Paranormal Activity

I’ve been friends with Grace since junior high school. We’ve kept in touch over the years and Facebook makes it so easy to stay connected. Last week Grace posted, “My ghost is back”. She then proceeded to tell me about the strange occurances taking place in her home.

I have never gotten into the ghost hunting but I knew the perfect guys to come investigate.
Alan and Jesse from Fathom Frontiers. Within minutes Alan eagerly agreed to come out with Jesse and their gear for a fun night of paranormal activity.

We arrived at 8:30 on Saturday evening, March 9, 2013. The guys set up their cameras to start the interview with Grace and her husband George. The following is the re-telling of their experiences.

The house they live in was a new construction built in 2005, they and their 3 children have been the only inhabitants of the house.
On September 25, 2012 they were all sound asleep whan at 3:20 a.m. they were awakened by a loud crash that sounded as if it came from the kitchen area. They ran downstairs to see the damage, they couldn’t find anything. They had assumed that a picture window had smashed or that a kitchen cabinet had collapsed sending all of the china and crystal shattering to the hard wood floor. After searching the entire house including the basement and garage they went back to bed. Not more than 20 minutes later they then heard a loud thud coming from the downstairs which sounded like a, heavy piece of furniture had been abruptly slid and dropped. They were certain that there was an intruder and immediately called 911. The 911 operator told them to gather the entire family into one room and close the door and wait for the police to arrive.

After a thorough inspection of the property, it was determined that nothing was out of the ordinary but the family was very perplexed.

There have been other subtle but notable things taking place since that day such as Grace hearing someone in the other room when she thought she was alone, she called out hey whose there? assuming her husband or sons had come in while she was engrossed in Words With Friends ;). The youngest child, 14 year old Grayson was watching television in her room before bed. She got up to brush her teeth and walked to her bathroom and when she returned the television was off and her bedroom door was ajar. She immediately ran into her parent’s room and slept there.
The most recent event which is why we decided to investigate occurred on Tuesday, March 4, 2013. The family was fast asleep when at 12:20 a.m. they were once again awakened by the sound of something scraping and sliding down the wallthen crashing to the floor. They ran downstairs and found nothing out of place. That’s when they decided something paranormal was going on and they wanted to get to the bottom of it.

We then toured the entire house which is pretty much a small mansion. Jesse and Alan went room to room taking EMF and temperature readings. Only one area showed any spikes in readings and it was in the general vicinity of where the sounds seem to eminate. Grace, George and I then retired to the kitchen and let the Fathom Frontiers get to work. They spent the next hour taking pictures, and readings with all of their high tech equipment.
It was now around midnight when we all assembled in the family room to try to communicate with any spirits using a device called a “spirit box” which is a device used for contacting spirits through the use of radio frequency.spirit
Alan adjusted the device to a certain radio frequency where white noise eminated through the speaker. We all took turns asking questions and asked for names. We got several responses that made the hair on my chest stand on end! The guys were also videotaping the session to see if anything was manifesting in the room with us. They then asked the spirits to quit bothering the family and the box went quiet.

Alan and Jesse are reviewing all of the data they collected and will follow up with their findings!
