"The study of para- psychology is no simple achievement, in essence because the subject matter of parapsychology tends to evoke extreme reactions in people, either of uncritical, soft-minded gullibility in the paranormal or of unyielding, close-minded skepticism...It is necessary to set aside such narrow pre- conceptions of the subject and consciously strive for a more objective, even handed style of weighing up argument and data on both sides of an issue."

REASON FOR INVESTIGATION:
We were contacted through our website from the daughter of our client. We contacted the client via phone to discuss the details of the occurances that had been happening. The homeowner had claimed to have witnessed entities walking through her dinning room on several occasions. She had also claimed that fingerprints were continuously showing up on a mirror in a bathroom that was not used very often. There are only 2 people that live in this residence and both have claimed the fingerprints are not theirs. The homeowner also claims to have a very negative and draining feeling when in the house, but when she leaves, she feels better.
Upon arriving at the residence, we immediately began unpacking our equipment in the living room. The atmosphere was inviting and felt like a very welcoming home. The homeowner has had an interest in the paranormal for many years and she owned her own gauss meter and Voice Activated Digital Tape Recorder.
Since we were unable to capture literally anything on any type of media or on our equipment, we can assume that either the house is in fact NOT haunted or that we were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. We have talked to the owner since our investigation and she claims that things have slowed down quite a bit and the draining feeling has went away for now. We told her that if it returned, to give us a call and we would consider a second investigation of the residence.
