CASE REVIEW – PRIVATE HOME
IN CENTRAL WISCONSIN
On June 6, 2007 the Wausau Paranormal Research Society
investigated a private residence located in the Central
Wisconsin area. Activity has been reported since 2003
in the owners present location. Residence is a
townhouse apartment with its own entrance in an
apartment complex. These experiences were relayed to
WPRS via email in May
2007and Probationary Investigator Spialek via telephone
interview in May 2007. Below is a list of activity that
has occurred during the past four years. All of which
was verbally relayed to us by the entire family.
PARANORMAL ACTIVITY THAT WAS REPORTED
- The most
recent activity occurred when the client was going
to work early one morning. He had the feeling of
being watched and their dog was growling at the
refrigerator. The water and ice dispenser paddles
then started to move back and forth on their own.
The client personally witnessed this. There have
been other occasions when the family has heard the
ice and water dispenser moving while they are in a
- One evening
the client's daughter was in her room watching
television. The volume on the television went up by
itself and the stereo turned itself on
the dog growls in the kitchen and refuses to go in
there. This happens sporadically, and sometimes the
dog has no problem being in the kitchen. If the dog
is growling, the client often tells whatever may be
in the kitchen to go away. The dog will stop
growling and go into the kitchen after that.
- The client
often hears someone pacing in the spare bedroom. It
is described as sounding as though someone is
walking back and forth to soothe a baby. Also
the television or printer in that room will be
turned on when the client gets up to go to work.
- Lights in
the living room will turn on by themselves and
flipping the switch will not work to turn them off.
After awhile, they shut off by themselves.
pewter wind chimes hung inside the residence will
move of their own accord at night.
- Client used
to have plastic on her bed and she would be half
asleep at night before her husband returned from
work. She would feel and hear the plastic move as
if someone was coming to bed, but she felt as if she
shouldn't roll over to see if it was her husband.
The client's husband would later come home from
work, so she would know that it hadn't been him.
This occurred occasionally until she got her dog.
After that the dog would sleep with her and would
occasionally growl into the hallway at night. She
was never again bothered by this occurrence.
- Client has
smelled whiffs of perfume and cigar smoke.
- Once the
client woke up at night and heard voices when no one
was around, and once thought she heard the Looney
Tunes theme song. She reiterated that she normally
cannot hear neighbors.
- Once when a
neighbor was over watching a movie, the television
volume turned all the way down and the CD player
- The most
disturbing event occurred last November or
December. The client was outside cleaning out his
car, when a young woman, in her early to mid 20's
with white hair, a white shirt and jeans came "out
of nowhere" and said to him, "Do you need some
help? I have lots of time." The client told her,
"no thank you" and watched as she then walked to the
apartment complex's playground area and disappeared
into thin air.
The investigation of the owner's residence took place on
6/6/07 starting at approximately 6pm. Probationary
Investigators Spialek, Nicholson and investigator K.
Lowe were present. During the investigation the
apartment was scanned with EMF meters. No unexplainable
readings were recorded. In the kitchen there was a
reading of 2.5 mg recorded but is explainable by the
electrical appliances in that area.
In conclusion of this report the WPRS did not find
enough supporting evidence to ascertain whether the
residence is haunted. While it is noted that several
witnesses have experienced what they believe to be
paranormal activity over the past several years,
the client feels that she
understands the phenomena and does not feel that it is
evil or frightening. We did not find any
strong evidence to support that claim at the time of our
use or reproduction of this documentation is prohibited

Spialek and the WPRS.
