BROGLI RESIDENCE – WAUSAU, WI
On June 1, 2007 at approximately 1800 hrs, members of
the Wausau Paranormal Research Society investigated
Alyssa Brogli's residence located at 734 Jefferson
Street, in the City of Wausau. Alyssa reports the
paranormal activity occurs on a daily basis with one or
two noticeable incidents but seems to be more pronounced
between 8:00 and 10:00PM. Paranormal activity has been
experienced by Alyssa and her family, and Angela (an out
of town friend). The Brogli's have lived in the
apartment since late December of 2006. The occupants of
the residence include Alyssa, her husband, and their
three young children.
PARANORMAL ACTIVITY THAT WAS REPORTED
• Family members and friends have heard the upstairs
doors opening and closing when no one is upstairs. The
family lives on the third floor and no one is above
• Phantom running noises overhead and then they hear
what sounds like a door slamming shut. When the family
goes to investigate, the doors remain, as they were
• Electrical phenomenon, lights and stereo turn on and
off without the aid of human hands and the stereo volume
changing on its own.
• Phantom odor of a Cherry Cigar wafts throughout the
apartment and then dissipates. No one in the home smokes
and the family cannot find a reasonable explanation.
• High occurrence of Sleep Paralysis has been
experienced by Alyssa at night when she sleeps in the
master bedroom and experiences a male presence yelling
• Sighting of a black shadow on the stairwell which
connects the living room to the upstairs bedrooms.
• Disembodied male voices having a discussion, although,
the content of the conversation cannot be understood.
• Alyssa's two young sons experienced the manifestation
of a ghostly face of a "mean boy" on the television set
in one of the boy's rooms prior to starting a movie.
• A disembodied male voice yells at Alyssa, from the
stairwell, when there is no one physically there.
• Alyssa was struck on the forehead by a black shadow
man while she and her friend Angie were watching a
television show in the living room. Angie witnessed the
incident and was so badly shaken by it she exclaimed
that she saw what happened but will not talk about what
she had seen.
The investigation of the owner's residence took
place on June 6, 2007, at approximately 6:00PM.
Probationary investigator Valerie Nicholson and
investigators Betsy Duginski and I were present. During
the course of the investigation the apartment had been
scanned with the following equipment: Natural and
Tri-Field EMF Meters; Thermal Temperature Probe; Digital
Camera; regular 35 mm cameras; Digital voice recorder; a
digital Geiger Counter; regular cassette recorder with a
fresh tape; and a notepad and pen. A brief tour was
given to us by Alyssa. After the tour we completed a
thorough walk through of the apartment and took baseline
measurements and temperatures. All first floor areas
displayed a steady 77-78 degree temperature. All second
floor areas displayed a steady 78 degree temperature.
EMF and Geiger counter readings registered as normal.
The only fluctuations recorded were near the electrical
outlets and appliances in the apartment. EVP sessions
were conducted by Duginski and Nicholson in the second
floor master bedroom. I conducted an EVP session on the
first floor with Alyssa present. Photographs were taken
of all areas with a digital camera and regular color 35
CONCLUSION OF FINDINGS
After reviewing all case materials and findings, I
have concluded that there was no paranormal activity
which occurred while present that evening. However, I
sincerely believe that Alyssa, her family, and friends,
are experiencing some type of paranormal activity which
chose not to manifest itself while we were there.
