Investigation Notes
Time
Notes
9:00 pm
A tour and a walk-through was give by a member of the Search and Rescue team.
9:30 pm

Equipment was set up, baseline EMF readings were taken. High EMF readings were observed in the hallway to the training room while the kitchen refrigerator (located on the other side of the adjoining wall) was running.

Kitchen cabinets and their latches were inspected in an attempt to debunk the reported sounds of cabinets opening and closing.

Various audible voice and talking tests were performed from outside the building in an attempt to debunk the reports of hearing a young girl speaking. We were trying to determine if it was possible that the voice that was heard could have come from someone outside the building.

A couple of team members went outside and attempted to speak in various pitches and volumes from different outside locations while other team members remained inside the building and listened. Although the team members inside the building could not consciously hear the outside team members, the audio recorders we had placed inside clearly picked-up the outside team members talking.

Static video cameras were set up in the training room on the south side of the room facing north, another in Bay #1 on the west side near the door facing east, and one more in the kitchen facing east down the hallway into the training room. Don carried a mobile video camera to record various locations and events during the investigation. Audio recorders were set up in the training room and in the kitchen.
The team split into two separate groups. Michael, Lauren and Glen investigated the training room while Jenn and Don investigated the equipment/vehicle bays.
The two investigation groups switched locations. Michael, Lauren and Glen investigated in the equipment/vehicle bays, while Jenn and Don investigated in the training room.
Michael, Lauren, and Glen returned to the training room with Jenn and Don for the remainder of the investigation.

NOTE: When reviewing audio evidence it is often necessary to wear headphones to hear all of the details.

 

Conclusion

None of the investigators had any personal experiences they considered paranormal. Audio recorders in the training room did pick up a few various bangs and clicking sounds that occurred while the room was empty. The various sounds could not be identified.

The result of this case is: Inconclusive
