On Friday, May 13, 2011, Eastern Iowa Paranormal conducted a scientific paranormal investigation in Blairstown, IA. This investigation was conducted by James Bramow, Kevin Grendler, Jessica Bramow, David Erb, and Tim Woodward. We were also joined for the evening by the one of the homeowners.
Using our digital audio recorders, IR stationary cameras, handheld video cameras, digital electromagnetic field tester, KII meter, Mel-Meters, digital temperature thermometer, Franks Box, we conducted a nearly 8 hour investigation.
As far as personal experiences go, nearly everyone at one point throughout the night saw shadow movement in different locations throughout the house. Unfortunately, this was not captured on any of our video equipment. We also did not record any unusual EMF readings at any time throughout the house. We did capture an unusual temperature drop in the basement but cannot determine if this was paranormal or caused by something mechanical.
We did capture eight EVP clips. EVP stands for Electronic Voice Phenomena. Below is a transcription of the eight clips:
Q) “Are you happy with the addition they put onto the house?” A) “Boy”
Q) While we are setting up, recorder is in child’s bedroom A) Heavy breathing or “Hi”
Q) “Slam a door, can you do that?” A) “No” (female voice)
Q) “Sit with him right now…” A) “Yes” (female voice)
Q) While no question is being asked A) “Stop it”
Q) “Come out and talk to us” A) “Leave”
Q) “Slam a door..” A) “The train is coming”
Q) While Tim is talking A) “No"
It is the opinion of Eastern Iowa Paranormal that there is something paranormal going on at the house, based on the EVP’s we captured and the personal experiences we all encountered. However, before we can say the home is haunted or whether we believe it is a Residual Haunt or a Intelligent Haunt, further investigating is needed. We would like to thank the homeowners for allowing us the opportunity to investigate their home, and we look forward to conducting a follow up investigation in the near future.
