Conclusion Based On Findings:  Haunted

  Private Residence, Bascom Ave, Campbell, CA

Investigation: March 31, 2012

On March 31st 2012, California Paranormal Research conducted a paranormal investigation of a private residence on Bascom Ave, Campbell, CA.

Our client will only be referred to as "Annette".  The primary experience in the location has been the resident being apparently scratched by an unseen entity.  These scratches have been occurring for several years, even before she moved into the current location.

Below are some samples of the evidence gathered from the investigation.


  • Fairly high EMF levels in several locations:

    -   All along the living room and bedroom wall due to the power distribution for the whole building being on the other side of that wall.  EMF levels of 25 to 30 mG (milligauss) were seem near the left end of her bed.  These levels are constant and very high, were as the other end of the bed has much lower at around 3 to 5 mG.

    -   High EMF levels of around 5 mG literally in the middle of the living room, with lower values near the ceiling, floor and walls.

  • Because in many situations, we had several audio recording devices recording at the same time and in the same location, a few of the resulting EVPs were captured on several, if not all, of them.  They are listed below as a group.

Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVPs):
These are clips from unfiltered, unaltered audio files.  EVPs tend to be rather soft voices and oddly modulated, so it helps to use good quality headphones, a higher volume and play the file several times.

  EVP Scale Meaning
  +++ excellent EVP quality
  ++ good, easily understood
  not bad, understandable
  - so-so, understandable but not easily
  -- weak modulation or higher noise, hard to understand
  --- probably an EVP, but very hard to make out, if at all

From the recorded EVPs, the fact that many appear to be interactive and aware of our presence, we conclude the place to be Haunted by two, if not more, Intelligent Spirits (i.e. Ghosts).


Since the time of the initial investigation, Annette hasn't received anymore scratched.  The captured EVPs don't lead to identifying the cause of the scratches, but as long as she isn't being harmed, she's agreed to try and get used to the idea she has unseen "guests".  We also made it clear to the spirits, that if Annette requests us to return, we will to take further action, if needed.
