A-E | F-J | K-O | P-T | U-Z

'Private Residences' includes homeowners or business owners who believe they are experiencing paranormal activity. These are generally the most requested type of cases.

 

Private Residence

Ledyard, CT - September 01, 2016

The client reported several different claims. He would be asleep in his bedroom and would hear his name being called from upstairs. He saw a face appear in a shower curtain and frequently heard footsteps in the house, even though he lives alone.

Subjective Claims:

Chris & David

Chris:

Before the investigation, he received a vision of the house.


Upon meeting the client, an elderly woman presented herself. She stood on his right side.

While investigating the basement, he received a vision of clowns laughing along with a “creepy clown.”


He wrote down the names “Elizabeth” and “Bette.”

David:

No subjective claims of any kind.

Objective Findings:

Investigators: David Bray, Chris O'Connor, Melissa Whited

Photos:

No photographic evidence was found.

Audio:

Several intelligent EVPs were captured.

Video:

No video evidence was found.

Assessment:

Paranormal Level: Grade 1 – Subjective paranormal activity cannot be debunked and at least one piece of evidence has been collected and documented, either by EVP or photo/video.

From the moment we were contacted by the client, we thought this case would be huge. In the months prior, Chris began receiving visions. Whenever this happens, it usually means something serious or important is going on and needs to be addressed. The house was a decent size too, so we knew we needed to bring an extra investigator and as it just so happened, Emily was in town. We set out for the investigation on September 1, 2016.


Throughout the night, not much happened. Several attempts were made to communicate using Spirit Box or EVP, but they were too sporadic. Some intelligent responses were bleeding through, but the logical and skeptical sides of us could chalk them up to probability factors. However, this case proved to be significant for Chris and the client. As it turns out, Chris had a vision of clowns while investigating the basement. This vision was validated when the client told us about his great aunt who was involved in theater and collected anything clown-related. Some of these items were also in the home. He showed us a picture of her and Chris confirmed that it was the woman who presented herself when we arrived. The picture was labeled “Bette.” Chris opened his sketch pad to the woman he drew and labeled “Elizabeth and Beth.” The client was shocked as the picture strongly resembled his sister Elizabeth, but revealed that they call her Beth.


Overall, not much evidence was found other than a few EVPs and some intelligent Spirit Box responses. Most of the team had no subjective claims of any kind. We believe that this case was all about Chris delivering a message to the client. His great aunt wanted him to reconnect with his sister and it is important to her that this is done. It is also interesting to note that the visions Chris received before the investigation happened while he was in New York. As it turned out, the great aunt frequently performed in New York and the sister currently resides there.

Plan:

Case Closed

There is no plan of action as this case is considered closed. We feel that the message that the client needed to receive was, and our part in the story has passed.

 

Private Residence

Madison, CT - October 04, 2019 & November 16, 2019

The client emailed us requesting an investigation at her historic 1700s home in Madison, CT. She was selling the home and wanted us to try and piece together some of the history. She had personal experiences during her time there and wanted to see if our claims matched anything she had witnessed. This case was what we like to call a 'validation case.' We were essentially called in to validate historical information through paranormal means.

Subjective Claims:

Chris & David

Chris:

Prior to the visit, he received a vision of the home and drew it in his notebook.

He believed the spirit of a young girl and an older male would interact with the residents.

He believed the patriarch of the home had an odd name that began with the letter 'A.'

He thought there was a female attachment to the guest of the homeowner.

He had a vision of one of the families that lived in the home around the early- to mid-1900s going through a funeral. A man was laid out in the front room with the fireplace.

The young man's [who was laid out] son was crying and being consoled by his mother. His name was Daniel.

David:

He received the names of several of the original family members from the 1700s including: Eunice, John, Sarah, and Margaret.

He received a vision of Eunice standing at the bottom of the stairs in the old section of the house. It was early morning hours and she was wearing a Victorian or Colonial-type dress.

He saw John in a Civil War uniform and believed he died during the war.

He saw a woman's shadow standing behind him in the front room, but could not debunk it.

He saw a vision of a family huddling together by the fire around Christmas time during a harsh winter: most likely a blizzard.

Objective Findings:

Investigators: David Bray, Chris O'Connor, Ruby L., Eli Freund

Photos:

No photographic evidence was found.

Audio:

A little girl's voice could be faintly heard on our recording devices, but the words were inaudible. We also captured the voice of an older male, but that too was inaudible.

Video:

No video evidence was found.

Assessment:

Paranormal Level: Grade 1 – Subjective paranormal activity cannot be debunked and at least one piece of evidence has been collected and documented, either by EVP or photo/video.

We want to start by thanking the homeowner for having us out not only once, but twice. She was fantastic and very accommodating.

Our first investigation did not necessarily go as planned. It took us a couple hours to get activity going, or rather, to start getting answers. We began hearing a whistling sound, but could not figure out where it was stemming from. We also could swear we heard a cat meowing all night, but there were none there.

The names I received all matched the original family that owned the home back in the 1700s. As it turns out, the home is already known as a haunted residence. Apparently, the vision of Eunice that I received is a common sighting. She is known to stand at the bottom of the stairs in her Colonial dress and stare out the window in the early mornings. Eunice died giving birth to Margaret, and John was Eunice's son, who died in the Civil War. Pretty crazy!

Shortly after we started attaining information, the homeowner and her guest came home. We therefore had to stop the investigation due to possible contamination, but our subjective evidence was confirmed.

The second investigation unfortunately did not provide many more answers. We think this case was more about validating the homeowner's feelings of spiritual activity in the home, and we feel we did that. We had plenty of personal experiences in the home and do believe it holds spirits. They aren't mean or malevolent in any way, and are part of the home's history.

Plan:

Case Closed

For now, this case is closed. We feel we did our part in validating the home's history through paranormal means and we wish the homeowner the best of luck selling!

 

Private Residence

Meriden, CT - June 07, 2019

The clients called us with an urgency to come out to their home. According to the couple, they currently lived with his parents and had a separate space for themselves in the basement. He considered himself to be a practicing Wiccan and picked up the interest or belief from his girlfriend. The couple claimed to be harassed by a figure who would peer out from behind the curtain next to their bed who would also pull the male out of bed, watch them, and physically assault them.

Subjective Claims:

Chris & David

Chris:

He had visions that someone in the home brought in negative energy through black magick or conjuring of some nature.

He believed that two males that have passed on visited the house. The younger of the two was not happy with what was occurring in the home.

He had visions of multiple dogs buried in the yard.

David:

He believed the female client was not being entirely truthful with the team.

He received an image of a spider.

He sensed a past trauma or a past occurrence with the female client that was causing some of the issues.

A vision of Papa Legba came to him as a warning, or rather a hint.

Objective Findings:

Investigators: David Bray, Chris O'Connor, Ruby L.

Photos:

No photographic evidence was found.

Audio:

Some intelligent Spirit Box responses were noted.

Video:

A shadow can be seen following the team out of the workshop area of the basement on the infrared camera.

Assessment:

Paranormal Level: Grade 2 - Objective findings include evidence of an EVP in direct relationship with a photo or video. The Spirit Box responds to direct questions with relevancy to the history of the residence and/or the occupants (including the paranormal team).

This case was one of those cases where there were a lot of dynamics we had to sort through in order to find out the truth. The first thing we noted was that the backyard seemed "off." Second, there were two energies within the home, which made sense. The parents lived upstairs and the younger couple lived downstairs. The parents were Catholic, the couple was Wiccan, but also practiced Voodoo and other Pagan arts. There was a clash of beliefs in the home.

The female client seemed to control, or liked to control things. She tried to take point in conversations with us, but we could tell she was being deceitful or at least, not entirely honest. There was clearly attention-seeking behavior present.

We did note there were odd energies in the home, and the vision I received of Papa Legba confirmed that for us, as well as running into a good-sized spider like the one I saw in my vision. The couple was mixing religious beliefs - dabbling in Wicca, Voodoo, and other arts as they deemed fit. This isn't necessarily bad on its own, but combine it with psychological problems and family dynamics, and it could lead to trouble. We did not find evidence to confirm anything malevolent was there, but our conclusion was that the activity stemmed from the female client.

Interesting note, we found out that the uncle used to live there and he had several dogs that he buried on the property.

Plan:

Case Closed

Sure enough, we later found out that the couple had broken up, and nearly all the activity in the home had ceased. We consider this case closed unless further paranormal issues arise.

 

Private Residence

Milford, CT - August 09, 2019, September 06, 2019, & September 27, 2019

The client reached out to us with concerns that his home was inhabited by demonic entities. He claimed that the entities were making him ill, resulting in neurological problems, weight loss, and forgetfulness. We were told that his house had a history, but he did not give us any further information on the matter. 

Subjective Claims:

Chris & David

Chris:

Objective Findings:

Investigators: David Bray, Chris O'Connor, Ruby L.

Audio:

A numerous amount of EVPs and Spirit Box responses were noted with relevance to the case, the history of the home, and the team.

Video:

No video evidence was found.

Assessment:

Paranormal Level: Grade 3 – Objective findings include evidence of a manifestation (non-orbs) captured by a photo or video. Audible sounds or voices can be heard by human ears and are documented on an audible device.

Coming soon.

Case Closed

Coming soon.

 

The Frosty Mug

New Britain, CT - September 03, 2017

The owner of "The Frosty Mug" reached out to us via email with claims that his New Britain bar was haunted, and wanted confirmation on the matter. We were told some of the history and were shown videos that the client captured on his security cameras. From the looks of it, they were legitimate and not easily explained.


We were able to secure an interview before the bar opened on a Sunday and returned a couple weeks later to perform the investigation. We were allowed access to the entire bar/restaurant after-hours including the basement. We set up equipment in nearly every part of the bar to see what we could capture.

Subjective Claims:

Chris & David

Chris:

Prior to the investigation, he received a vision of a middle-aged heavy-set woman that would frequent the establishment. He drew the woman.

He had a vision of a man with a name beginning with the letter 'G' falling down the basement stairs.

David:

He sensed that a middle-aged woman had a connection with a male military veteran.

Objective Findings:

Investigators: David Bray, Chris O'Connor, Melissa Whited

Photos:

No photographic evidence was found.

Audio:

Several intelligent Spirit Box responses were found that were relevant to the history of the establishment.

Video:

No video evidence was found.

Assessment:

Paranormal Level: Grade 2 - Objective findings include evidence of an EVP in direct relationship with a photo or video. The Spirit Box responds to direct questions with relevancy to the history of the residence and/or the occupants (including the paranormal team).

This investigation was a blast. The owner was very accommodating from the start and gave us access to areas that we wouldn't normally have access to. We spent time in the main area, the pool room, the kitchen, the bar itself, and the basement.

To be honest, most of the night was pretty quiet. It wasn't until about three hours in that we started getting Spirit Box responses to our questions. The woman who was coming through told us her name was Marge, who was a heavy-set woman who would frequent the bar in the past. She also had a connection to or relationship with a member of the military. She confirmed to us that she was causing activity and did not mean any harm.

The owner showed us previous "evidence" that another paranormal team received during their own investigation. It was video taken in the basement which showed a full-body apparition for about five seconds - clear as day. The cameraman turns away and turns back, and poof - gone.

We re-watched that footage a bunch of times and we noticed something odd. The apparition had white Nike sneakers, a hat, and what appeared to be a cell phone. In fact, the light from the cell phone screen illuminated the dark-lit basement in the video. Our next step was to re-create the "evidence."

I had Chris stand where the apparition appeared and mimic the exact movements from the video. Sure enough, it matched. The "apparition" was actually someone who came down into the basement and was using their cell phone for light. They took it out, used it, turned it off, put it back in their pocket, and walked back upstairs. Debunked.

When we told the owner how we disproved it, he disagreed claiming that no one else was there except the two investigators who were accounted for in the video. We can agree to disagree, but the surveillance footage he showed us from that same day had him wearing white Nike sneakers. Sadly, they took the footage and ran, posting it in the local newspaper as legitimate evidence of paranormal activity. Another sad day for the paranormal community.

Plan:

Case Closed

Although we disagreed on our opinion of paranormal evidence, we want to thank the owner of "The Frosty Mug" for having us. It was truly a great experience and we wish him all the best with his future endeavors.

 

Private Residence

Niantic, CT - February 06, 2020

The client called us with urgency claiming that demons were harassing her family. She previously had another paranormal team out several times, but activity wasn't getting any better. We were concerned as children were involved. The claims were of the usual variety: physical attacks, shadows, negative feelings, voices, and more. We headed out there on a weekday evening to investigate.

Subjective Claims:

Chris & David

Chris:

Prior to the investigation, he received visions of two sisters, one nice and the other not so much.

He believed there was self-manifested energy within the home that sometimes presented itself as negative energy.

He heard three loud knocks while investigating the basement.

David:

He believed the paranormal activity was self-manifested.

He thought that a male family member who had passed on was visiting the family.

He heard three loud knocks while investigating the basement.

Objective Findings:

Investigators: David Bray, Chris O'Connor, Ruby L., Eli Freund

Photos:

No photographic evidence was found.

Audio:

No audio evidence was found except for some Spirit Box responses.

Video:

No video evidence was found.

Assessment:

Paranormal Level: Grade 1 – Subjective paranormal activity cannot be debunked and at least one piece of evidence has been collected and documented, either by EVP or photo/video.

We headed out to Niantic on a weekday evening because claims seemed urgent and children were involved, and luckily we were wrong. When we arrived, we discovered that the client's boyfriend was present, something we were not aware of. The client also had two daughters, one who seemed to be defiant and the other who seemed to be determined. This is most likely where Chris' vision came from.

One of the events that happened that we can't explain is that when Ruby and Eli were talking to the clients upstairs, we were downstairs and heard three loud knocks on the floor above us. Apparently, they heard no such thing and it was in an area of the house where no one was at the time, including any pets. It was loud, and deliberate. Anyway, after a round of interviews, we had them leave and we started the investigation.

Once again, we received no evidence of anything paranormal happening in the home nor did we sense any demonic or malevolent activity. If anything, this was a case of psychokinesis (PK), self-manifested through the two daughters clashing with their mother. The only responses were regarding the client's husband who we found out was murdered. The Spirit Box kept repeating his murderer's name.

Plan:

Case Closed

We gave the clients our findings and offered them a plan on how to address activity, but we did not hear back from them. Case closed.

 

Private Residence

North Haven, CT - June 12, 2017

The client met Chris while he was receiving a MRI scan. She was one of his MRI technologists. It is quite a funny story, but Chris began reading some of the employees there when the client told him about some issues her mother was having regarding the paranormal.


For years, the mother would wake up screaming, terrified. She claimed to see a man in her room, a little girl, and unexplained lights on a daily basis. She was afraid to be home alone and hated going to sleep at night. We were called in to try and discern whether or not this was indeed, paranormal.

Subjective Claims:

Chris & David

Chris:

He felt the presence of a young girl throughout the house.


He had visions of the property before the house was built. He saw many orchards and farmland.


He wrote down the name “Lillian Rose.” He described the young girl as having strawberry blonde hair, wearing a dress with flowers on it, and wearing a hat. He believed she belongs to the property.

David:

He felt the presence of a young girl throughout the house.


He received the names “Lilly” and “Rose” on separate occasions.


He described the young girl as wearing a dress with flowers on it, white shoes, and wearing a hat.


While setting up the IR Camera in the basement, a children’s toy went off and began talking on its own. He was unable to replicate it or find the toy.


During an energy session, he felt the presence of a young girl close by. She seemed curious, but was hesitant about coming too close.

Objective Findings:

Investigators: David Bray, Chris O'Connor, Melissa Whited

Photos:

No photographic evidence was found.

Audio:

No audio evidence was found.

Video:

A young girl was captured by our Full Spectrum Camcorder while investigating the basement.

Assessment:

Paranormal Level: Grade 3 – Objective findings include evidence of a manifestation (non-orbs) captured by a photo or video. Audible sounds or voices can be heard by human ears and are documented on an audible device.

This was an extremely fascinating case to say the least. It seems that the cases where we have no expectations always manage to be the best ones.


Upon researching the area, we found that the entire area was actually all farmlands and orchards, validating Chris’ vision. We found that the house itself was pretty normal as we did not receive any photographic or auditory evidence of any kind. We did not even think we caught anything at all until we started going over our video recordings. As it just so happened, we missed the evidence the first time around. We were going to rate this case a ‘Grade 0’ based on the fact that we found nothing objective. However, we took a second look as fate would have it and Chris noticed the video evidence posted above, skyrocketing this case to a ‘Grade 3’ rating. The reason we believe this footage is so compelling is because it is not only clear as day, but it validates both the client’s subjective views and our subjective views as well. In the footage, she can be seen peeking out from behind the corner. This is important because of two reasons. First, I was looking for a chair because I was going to try and convince her to sit on his lap, as she seemed to be fascinated with me, but she was being shy (hence peeking out) and wouldn’t come out. Second, Chris was in the room that she was peeking out from and while the footage was caught, he was feeling around the room with his hands because he sensed a presence.


As to what we believe is going on – we believe that the client’s mother has extrasensory abilities. Talking to her led us to believe that she has always had the ability to see and communicate with spirits, but her upbringing deterred her from properly harnessing it. She never had a mentor or was told how to properly use it, leading to fear and confusion. Now that she is getting older, she is most likely losing the ability to control it from a physical perspective. However, we educated the client and her mother on how to deal with spirits when they present themselves and assured them both that there is nothing to be afraid of. We gave them tools to use to stay aware, stay calm, and taught them how to listen for their messages.  

Plan:

Case Closed

Just like most of our private residence cases, this one is considered closed unless more issues arise. If everyone in the family does their part, they should be okay as there is nothing malevolent in the house. They are simply spirits of the property who get curious from time to time.
