On Wednesday 8/13/14, I had the opportunity to be part of a group that was the first to investigate this private location. The house was built in the early 1900s and has historical significance. I am very grateful that the owners gave us permission to investigate. Here are some of the EVPs I captured on this investigation.
The Front Parlor on the first floor definitely had a “feel” to it. On the initial walk-through of the house, I was feeling so bad just by being in the room that I had to leave it and escaped into the hallway. I don’t know if my bad feeling indicated anything in the Front Parlor; I can say that I recorded a number of possible EVPs here.
Clip 1: In this clip, you’ll hear Jim say, “…see if I can catch everybody” in the frame of his video camera. Mariah then asks the group, “So you guys want to do a….” Listen to the moment right after she finishes saying this and before she continues on with “a quick EVP session?” There’s a male voice at the 4 second mark that says something. Can you make it out?
Clip 2: You’ll hear 2 women talking about warning everyone before taking a flash photograph by saying, “Flash.” Mariah then says, “Nope, no flash” when her camera flash doesn’t go off. At the 7 second mark, a male voice says, “Get him,” just before Jim says, “Rolling” to indicate that he’s started his video camera. The male voice is not Jim’s and he was the only male in the house that night. Were the spirits referring to Jim? (Note: I amplified the possible EVP so you can hear it more easily.)
Clip 3: You can faintly hear Jim say, “I almost said Shinn House,” when he was tagging the location of his recording. One of the women present makes a sound, which is followed by Jim saying what sounds like “House, parlor.” Someone tags, “Flash.” Right after this, there’s a voice. Can you make out what’s being said? (Note: I edited this clip to remove the name of the location, which Jim included when he said, “House, parlor.” I’ve also amplified the possible EVP.)
Clip 4: Mariah says, “I know, know all of you….” She then briefly pauses before saying, “I know all of you are sensing something right now.” Can you hear the voice in her pause and make out what’s being said?
Clip 5: This is a 2nd generation recording. In it, you’ll hear Debbie say, “My name is Debbie.” At the 3 second mark, a non-human voice says something that’s not nice. This is followed by another, different non-human voice that may be saying, “Get out.”
Note: Jim and Marcy, who did an initial walk-through of the house before the night of 8/13/14, reported hearing someone/something who was very unhappy that they were in the house. They also sensed the same energy. It’s possible that the voices from Clip 5 could be related to this unhappy entity who just wanted us to leave him–and the house–alone.
Clip 6: This is a 2nd generation clip. In it, you’ll hear Michelle say, “My name is Michelle.” Near the 5 second mark, you’ll hear something crinkle or crack; this is a noise made by one of the investigators. Right after this sound, a voice says something. Can you make it out?
Clip 7: More not-nice-things being said by non-humans. You’ll hear Mariah say, “And you can hear your voices, too,” before she replays a quick EVP session that we’ve just finished. She also says, “I know you know how to project them.” This is followed by a non-human male voice. Can you make out what is being said?
