Ashley is the owner of this 2 story home in Springfield, Missouri. Ashley and her children recently moved into this residence and she, her children and guests have all reported experiencing aggressive paranormal activity in nearly every room of the home, even the garage. Claims include visitors to the home seeing full bodied apparitions, voices, knocking/bangs, items being moved, snapping of fingers sounds, bruises on the body associated with feelings of being touched, hearing several footsteps walking or running through the home and feeling ill when inside the home an extended period of time. This investigation has so far occurred in 3 different visits.
We attempted to debunk the clients claims right away like normal but we also began capturing audio evidence right away so we shifted our focus from debunking to attempting to find answers for this homeowner and her children. As far as the evidence we collected (which is below), we were unable to debunk any of the audio pieces presented. No windows were open and at this time of night, no one was outside the home other than the investigators at any point. We approach these investigations with a very healthy dose of skepticism but this was a VERY rare case where we started collecting evidence early and had to shift focus from debunking to figuring out what the hell we were experiencing ourselves inside the home. The evidence we collected is below.
Starting out an investigation, you never know what evidence you may or may not collect. And it takes some pretty impressive captures to make it this far on our website. This home turned out to be just a treasure trove of unexplainable audio EVP's and we caught them on multiple recorders. The entire EVP roundup is below. And it's a lot.
EVP #1 - We were still setting up for the investigation with lights on. At :17 you'll hear what can only be described as snapping fingers which Tyler heard.
EVP #2 - The same piece you heard above but from a different recorder which was placed at the top of the stairs. In this one you DO hear the door slamming which Ty heard and reacted to which wasn't captured by the other recorder. Chris and Dustin did not hear this sound, only Tyler. And we corrobor
EVP #3 - This one occurred while all 3 investigators were taking a break outside with recorders still rolling inside. At about :07 you'll hear snapping of fingers again followed by what sound like an unintelligible vocal
EVP #4 - This is either a cabinet or door closing but again happened while all 3 investigators were investigating the exterior of the home to debunk knocks, etc. You can hear all 3 of the investigators outside talking when this occurs.
EVP #5 - This is our EMF detector which was placed on the landing at the top of the stairs. All 3 investigators were outside when something triggered the detector to alarm.
EVP #6 - Captured around the same time as the above #5 piece but from a different recorder (in living room). You will hear what sounds like an object or objects falling over with no one inside the home. Upon returning nothing was obviously displaced or visually out of order.
EVP #7 - You will again hear snapping fingers and a vocal sound we can't describe. Maybe it's a laugh? We checked the time stamps, all 3 investigators were outside at this time, you can hear us talking in the distance.
EVP #8 - At :13 while Ty is using the facilities (sorry, you can hear this occurring, we don't like to edit audio where there's a capture) there is a loud thump/knock which Chris and Ty both hear which seemed to come from the restroom door itself.
EVP #9 - Captured from an upstairs recorder while investigators were conducting an EVP downstairs. You'll hear Chris say "if you're upstairs, can we hear a noise up there?" followed by unintelligible but VERY obvious whispering which weve determined was very close to the recorder itself.
EVP #10 - All 3 investigators were in the living room and Ty says "you're going to have to use your big boy voice" and you can hear a voice say "....is anybody there?". This was not heard by any of the investigators at the time
The historical analysis of this home shows no significant events such as suicide/major crime incident(s) which would possibly lead to the paranormal activity documented by our investigators. This home was built in 1971, is 1,264 square feet with 4 beds, 2 baths and has no historical significance to this investigation. Given the evidence we collected, we were able to determine that there is at least one male presence in the home who does not respond directly to (male) confrontation, but prefers to interact peripherally, when investigators are not inside the home or from a distance when we were present. We are going to perform a second visit to this home to try to get more definitive answers regarding the activity we personally experienced and our next investigation will involve much more tech coverage including multiple video recorders and we will likely invite female homeowner to be present for part of the investigation to try to trigger the more confrontation energy she has reported.
We do NOT say this very often at all, but while this case remains open with a future investigation coming very soon, we consider this home to be experiencing true paranormal activity. This will be the next investigation we will be scheduling, so stay tuned for (hopefully) more info and more answers to what the hell is going on here.
