Conclusion Based On Findings:  Haunted


Private Residence, Monterey Rd., Seaside, CA    (Fort Ord)

Investigation: August 11, 2012

California Paranormal Research conducted a paranormal investigation of a private residence in Old Fort Orb located on Monterey Road, Seaside, on August 11, 2012.

The location is a two story duplex home, with both sides of the building experiencing paranormal activity.  It's a newly constructed home, on what we are told is the original foundation for a similar structure, when the place was used for base housing.  Fort Ord has a long military history there.

The claims of paranormal activity in this location are:

  • Shapeless shadow form seen walking into the garage
  • Male voice talking to their young daughter in her upstairs bedroom and activity as though she is in her room interacting with someone
  • Sounds of movement and footsteps in the upstairs area
  • Feeling of being watched through out the house

We set up two full infrared DVR camera systems and voice recorders to monitor all areas of both halves. We then spent the evening in two teams, attempting to make contact with whoever may be there in EVP sessions.


EMF readings thought out both sides of the duplex were very low, since the building is clearly a newer construction and using more modern wiring and appliances.

One thing that may explain a lot of the sounds of movement and footsteps in the upstairs area, of both sides of the duplex, is a lot of free movement in the upstairs hallway closet door even when closed.  In both the video and audio, the doors can be seen/heard to rattle loudly as anyone goes in or out of the ground floor outside doors.  If any windows were open, it's easy to see this happening anytime there is any change in the air flow.

We didn't capture anything paranormal on any of the video.

Audio analysis resulted in a bunch of EVPs, which are listed below.  In order to protect the identity of the residence, we've referred to the two sides of the duplex as Side "A" and Side "S" only.

Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVPs):
These are clips from unfiltered, unaltered audio files and slight filtered copies used to clarify what is being said.  However the filtered/altered files are not considered "evidence" in themselves, they are for analysis only, and presented here for that purpose.  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

The voice quality of many of these EVPs isn't great, but a voice can be heard.  From the recorded EVPs, the fact that they appear to be highly interactive and aware of our presence, we conclude the residence to be Haunted by at least one Intelligent Spirit (i.e. Ghost).  A few aspects of the evidence may point to a possible residual haunting as well (replay of a past event connected with the location).
