PRIVATE RESIDENCE ON WAUSAU’S EAST SIDE
An investigation of a private residence on the City of
Wausau’s East side was completed on February 18th 2006
from 6:00PM until 10:00PM. WPRS members Coscio,
Blaschka, J. Geurink, and Renel were present. The
residence is 90 to 93 years old and has been occupied by
the current owner since December of 2003.
PARANORMAL ACTIVITY THAT WAS REPORTED
On December 18, 2005 an initial phone interview was
conducted with the owner and the following paranormal
occurrences have been reported:

An overnight house guest had remarked to the owner

An investigation of the private residence was completed
on February 18th 2006 from 6:00PM until 10:00PM with the
owner present. During the course of the investigation
the following equipment was used: 35MM disposable and a
Fuji film 4.1 Mega Pixel digital camera; a Sony
micro-cassette recorder; Natural and Tri-Field Meters;
Thermal probe; Hitachi 8MM Video Camera; and a Sony
Steady Shot Handy Cam Vision with Night Shot. EVP
sessions were conducted in all areas of the home.
However, after review, there was nothing which could be
considered to be paranormal. EMF readings and
temperatures were taken in all areas of the residence.
Average temperatures on the main level were between
65-68 ½ degrees. The average Milligaus readings were
between 1-5MG. As we began to ascend the stairs to the
second floor member Blaschka experienced an extremely
sharp spike of energy (2 1/2-3MG) which followed me for
3-4 steps and then quickly dissipated. In an effort to
determine the cause for this spike we returned to the
bottom landing and ascended again. We were unable to
explain or recreate this spike of energy. On the Second
floor, the average temperatures were between 66-67 1/2
degrees. The average Milligaus readings were between
1-3 1/2MG. I entered the empty bedroom immediately
across from the master bedroom and Member Blaschka again
recorded an extremely sharp spike of energy (2 ½-3 ½ MG)
the energy seemed to materialize and follow me into the
room and then dissipated. The last EMF and temperature
readings that were gathered were in the basement of the
home. The average temperature ranged between 43-49
degrees and EMF readings ranged from 1½-4MG to 5-10 MG)
near stronger electrical sources. Upon review of my
photos taken with the digital camera there were between
4-7 photos which contained a reddish mist which appeared
on the certain portions of the photos. All of the
photos taken were shot with the night shot feature.
This was the first investigation where this feature was
used. I am not sure if this is the source of the red
mist or a reflection off painted or lacquered surfaces.
There were no other red or pink surfaces present to
cause this effect. I have included the photos for
review and examination.
