CASE REVIEW - PRIVATE RESIDENCE -
An investigation of a private residence
in the city of Waupaca was completed on February 25th
2006 from 6:00PM until 10:00PM. WPRS members Blaschka,
Coscio, J. Geurink, and Renel were present. The
residence is 100+ years old, and is currently occupied
by two adults, two small children, and one dog.
PARANORMAL ACTIVITY THAT WAS
Between an initial phone interview and
on-site interviews with the owner the following
paranormal occurrences have been reported:
1) Far left mirrored cabinet door is regularly found
2) A crayon container filled with crayons had rested on
one end of the bathtub. This container was found inside
the bathtub while the crayons were found outside the
3) An apparition of a small child was observed sitting
on the other end of the bathtub.
1) Upon exiting the restroom late one evening, the
resident witnessed a man's face in the middle panel of
the nine-window-panel kitchen door to the outside. No
body was seen associated with the face.
1) The residents report multiple photographic anomalies
("orbs") in photographs taken in this room.
2) The dog will stare at one corner (behind the couch)
for no apparent reason.
1) The home owner reports witnessing the apparition of a
woman in white at the end of the bed.
Child's Bedroom #1 (Each child has his or her own
bedroom. This is the older child's bedroom):
1) The child typically wakes up on WED-SAT nights
between 10:15 and 11:30, crying or screaming. On these
occasions the child is regularly found staring out the
Child's Bedroom #2
1) The child's bedroom ceiling light was known to
flicker with no human interaction.
investigation of the private residence was completed on
February 25th, 2006 from 6:00PM until 10:00PM
with the owners (but not the children) present. During
the course of the investigation the following equipment
was used: 35MM disposable, a Kodak 4.1 MP digital
camera, and a Fujifilm 4.1 MP digital camera; a Sony
micro-cassette recorder and a Digital Solutions digital
sound recorder; and Natural and Tri-Field Meters. EVP
sessions (passive) were conducted in all areas of the
home, with active questioning in the master bedroom and
older child's bedroom. During evidence collection no
EMF anomalies were witnessed and temperature readings
were consistent through the house. The temperature
near the floor in all areas of the home was low, rising
with the height at which the temperature was taken.
Review of the evidence revealed no audio or photographic
The effect of the flickering light in the younger
child's bedroom is likely due to loose wiring in the
light fixture. Investigator Blaschka was able to
reproduce a flicker effect by walking firmly across the
floor underneath the light.
Our investigation window did not present evidence
that could be considered "paranormal." However, it is
possible that the children are catalysts for the
activity. We have scheduled a follow-up investigation
for June 10th, 2006 to take place with all
members of the family present.
On 6-10-06, our group revisited the
private residence in Waupaca. On our prior
investigation we were not able to confirm anything
paranormal; however, we had learned that most of the
activity was centered on the clients two year old son,
whom was not present at the time of our first
During our second visit, we asked
that the client have her son with her at the house
during the investigation. We took several pictures of
the family in their home, using digital and disposable
cameras. Many of the pictures revealed orbs. We also
took pictures of a crawl space underneath their house
where the owner had recently found an antique sleigh.
Those pictures revealed a peculiar mist which could not
be explained as being fog or smoke. Also, consecutive
pictures were taken that did not show the mist just
seconds later. At 9:15PM we started recording the
family’s two year old son as he began to fall asleep
using a Sony night shot camera. We also set up an E.M.F.
tri-field meter in the child’s room. Upon review of the
video tape the following notable incidences occurred:
As the client's son begins to drift off to sleep, he
sits up, looks toward his bedroom door, and asks,”
What". He then hides his face on the bed for a moment
and sits up a second time to look at the door. The
squelch on the tri-field meter sounds, (ranging from low
to high, then back). The child then lies down, rocks
from side to side, covers his ears with his hands, and
looks towards the bedroom door. He then shifts around,
stands up, and says,” Not ready, not ready, not ready".
When he says this, he is holding his arms out towards
something. The child then lies back down on the bed,
pulls the covers over his head, and states that he is a
ghost (3 to 4 times). He then stands up next to the bed
and states,” I see it", (3 to 4 times) with the cover
still over his head. He later lies back down and falls
As the child sleeps, an orb (or
possibly a bug or dust), is seen that quickly moves from
the lower right side of the screen, then darts towards
the child’s head and disappears. While watching the
video recording, two of the investigators sensed a
strong unseen presence in the room with them.
In conclusion, I feel that there is
a strong possibility of paranormal activity at this
residence, however nothing that can be scientifically
confirmed. Our investigation left us with more
questions than answers.
