Gathered by Owners and Friends
Page By Tom Deighton
Here you will find evidence that we collected, mostly, through the process of being in the building. There is more than can be reasonably displayed within the time frame allowed to build these pages. The picture to the right was taken by Peg Knickerbocker near the end of May, 2008 and there's an interesting story of how it happened.
Peg and I were downstairs watching the web cam, as Keystone Paranormal was setting up equipment for an investigation. Peg said she thought the web cam was "out of focus or something", so she wanted to go upstairs and check on it. I had read on the internet about using a laser pointer to spot ectoplasmic mist. When you point your laser you should not see the beam until it hits the wall or some other solid object. If you scan the room and you see some part of the beam before it hits a wall; you should take a picture. We both went upstairs armed with laser devices and a digital camera.
It was not apparent why the web cam seemed out of focus, everything in the children's room, where the web cam was pointed, was fine. We scanned the room with our lasers for a couple of minutes but saw nothing, I was personally a little disappointed. Peg was not about to haul a camera to the third floor and not take pictures, so she started snapping some. Only about four of five. Between the lasers and the camera flashes it should have been a cool light show for the web cam viewers.
When we got downstairs and Peg went through her pictures she found the one I have posted to the right. The rocking chair was right outside the children's room near the hall way entrance.
EVPs Captured Over the Internet
These EVPs were recorded on the second Sunday in June, 2008. I was at home and I just happened to check the web cam, also known as "The Apparition Action Cam" right when Peg and her sisters Clara and Kathy came upstairs to adjust the view. They were talking and carrying on as usual, I sent a chat message so they would know I was watching. I have an audio program on my computer, Audacity (free to download) that allows me to record whatever is coming out of my computer speakers. I began recording. I got an EVP from the web cam once before so I knew it could happen.
This time was different! The recording I made was about twenty-five minutes in length and it was dripping with EVPs. The three to the right are not processed at all. Usually all I can do with them is run some noise reduction and increase the volume on the object of interest. These three didn't need anything and sometimes processing tends to add to the confusion. I still recommend listening with headphones.
The voices in the background of the "I am here" EVP is discussion among Peg and one of her sisters. Unusual; the EVP is the foreground sound.
