These clips were recorded in the Berthing Area above the Focsle. When the Hornet was active, a sailor named Peter hung himself in this area because he received a “Dear John” letter (breakup letter from his girlfriend).
Clip 1: You’ll hear us talk about the possibility of a door off the Berthing Area being open and letting cold air in Several of us felt an icy coldness and were wondering if it was paranormal. At the 2 second mark, I can hear a non-human voice whisper, “And Ray.”
Clip 2: This is a 2nd generation recording. I wish Peter a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. At the 9 second mark, I can hear a faint whisper saying what sounds like, “Because this day.” I also hear something before this whisper said in an echo-y voice but can’t make out any words.
Clip 3: A woman in my group reported feeling something hug her. Her fiance’ asked, “Did you hug my fiance’e?” I can hear a male whisper, “We did.” This is a 2nd generation recording.
Clip 4: Laura J asks Peter if he’d mind if she slept in this area. At the 4 second mark, a non-human voice can be heard as Laura J says, “…that center bunk over there.” It’s possible that this voice is saying, “No,” it doesn’t mind if Laura sleeps there. This is a 2nd generation recording.
Clip 5: Bob asks, “Peter, did you work on the Flight Deck?” An echo-y voice can be heard at the 4 second mark saying, “Nope,” followed by what sounds like the same voice saying, “I did.” This is a 2nd generation recording.
Clip 6: This is a 2nd generation recording from Julie’s (another docent in my group) recorder. You’ll hear Laura J say, “And give it, like, maybe, 3 seconds….” A female non-human voice can heard saying, “Uh hmmm,” as if indicating paying attention to Laura J’s instructions.
Clip 7: Warning: This clip includes some profanity.
Julie is talking about an EVP she has of someone on the Hornet, on a prior investigation, calling her a “crazy bitch.” Julie says, “I’ll show you a crazy bitch!”
I say, “Yeah” and laugh. Before I say, “If you want a crazy bitch, I’ll show you….” I can hear a disembodied voice say, “Get out!”
For the night of 12/27/15, this would be the 4th time disembodied voices told us to “get out.” The first 3 times were heard in Radio Central, a location we visited before the Berthing Area.
